10:05 EDTAAPL, AMZN, GOOG, FB, EBAYAnalyst makes case for Google buying eBay
Google (GOOG) could address two of its weaknesses by buying eBay (EBAY), research firm Robert W. Baird wrote in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: Investors are talking about the possibility of eBay spinning off its PayPal unit, but the company could be better off selling its core business and its PayPal unit to Google, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian believes. Google could pay $57 per share for eBay, representing a 50% premium over the e-commerce company's closing price on March 14, Sebastian estimated. Buying eBay would enable Google to bolster its payments and e-commerce offerings, which are considered its Achilles heel, the analyst contended. Moreover, the deal would allow Google and eBay to compete much more effectively with Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL) and Facebook (FB), according to the analyst. From eBay's perspective, selling itself to Google could be more attractive than spinning off PayPal, as eBay could have trouble coping without its payments unit, Sebastian wrote. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, eBay rose 1% to $57.35, while Google climbed 1.1% to $1,185.

Citigroup analyst Jeremy David downgraded Garmin two notches to Sell from Buy saying competitive pressures are likely to stall the growth of the company's GPS fitness watch business. He also thinks revenue trends in Garmin's Outdoor segment could disappoint as the year progresses. David expects Garmin to miss consensus earnings and revenue expectations in Q1 and views the Apple (AAPL) Watch launch as another potential negative catalyst for shares. He cut his price target for the stock to $42 from $68. Shares of the navigation and information device maker closed Thursday down 58c to $46.49 after Goldman Sachs downgraded the stock Neutral from Buy.
