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.

05:55 EDTAAPLApple changes tune over music streaming royalties, Financial Times says
Apple has agreed to pay for all the music carried on its new streaming music service during free trials, reports the Financial Times. The company signaled the climbdown after singer Taylor Sift released an open letter Sunday that denounced Apple Music as "shocking" and "disappointing.", adding that her views were shared by "every artist, writer and producer" in her social circles. The company will now pay for the music it streams during free trials, though it would pay less for each stream than it will when a user has taken a full subscription. Reference Link
