Analysts at Jefferies say eBay (EBAY) seems to be heavily using Google's (GOOG) new "product listing ads" in its fight with Amazon (AMZN), though Amazon is reluctant to use the ads, which push down Amazon's "organic" or unpaid search results, according to Business Insider. Reference Link

12:47 EDTGOOGYahoo falls after results disappoint, details additional plans for Alibaba stake
Shares of media and search engine company Yahoo (YHOO) are falling after the company's second quarter results fell short of analysts' consensus estimates. The company also said it will lower the amount of stock it will sell in Alibaba's initial public offering to 140M shares and that it plans to return "at least half" of its after-tax proceeds from the stake sale to its shareholders. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Yahoo reported Q2 earnings per share of 37c and revenue ex-tac of $1.04B, narrowly missing analysts' consensus estimates of 38c and $1.08B, respectively. The company's Q2 display ad revenue fell 7% to $394M, while Q2 price per ad fell 24% versus last year. Q2 search revenue ex-tac increased 6% to $428M. Yahoo said that in Q2, the number of ads sold increased approximately 24% compared to last year, while the number of paid clicks increased approximately 3%. Price-per-click increased 15% compared to last year. Marissa Mayer, Yahoo's Chief Executive Officer, said that as the company's top priority is revenue growth, it is "not satisfied" with Q2 results. Mayer noted that several areas showed strength in the quarter, including Yahoo Search, which grew 6% year-over-year on a revenue ex-tac basis, but their growth was offset by declines. Meyer says the company needs to "work faster to ameliorate" negative trends in display. Mayer says the company "can and will do better" going forward. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Looking ahead, Yahoo forecast third quarter revenue ex-tac of $1.02B-$1.06B, below the consensus of $1.1B. The company also guided Q3 adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBTIDA, at $220M-$260M and non-GAAP operating income of $70M-$110M. Yahoo also noted that it will lower the number of shares it sells in the Alibaba IPO to 140M from 208M, and is committed to return at least half of the after-tax IPO proceeds to shareholders. Mayer noted on the company's earnings conference call that "A transformation of this size will take several years," adding that "it will take a little longer than originally forecasted." ANALYST REACTION: This morning, research firm CRT Capital downgraded Yahoo to Fair Value from Buy, citing mixed Q2 earnings and weak guidance. The firm sees pressure on ad pricing continuing for at at least two to three quarters. Another firm, Bernstein, lowered their price target on Yahoo to $40 from $43 following the company's weaker than expected results and said that it would return 50% of its proceeds from the Alibaba IPO to shareholders. The firm thinks there is an increased risk that Yahoo will use the other 50% on M&A, and Bernstein sees high risk that the M&A will destroy value. Bernstein kept an Outperform rating on the stock. Piper Jaffray said Yahoo should be owned ahead of the Alibaba IPO, noting its agreement with Alibaba to reduce the number of shares it will sell at the IPO should outweigh the "unsurprising" challenges in the company's core business. The firm, which kept an Overweight rating on the stock, expects the stock to react positively on the Q2 earnings report. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Yahoo fell $1.66, or about 4.7%, to $33.95 on heavy trading volume. Despite today's pull back, the stock is up approximately 25% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Yahoo peer AOL (AOL) is down over 4.% to $38.98. Jackie Reses, Yahoo's chief of mergers and acquisitions, said at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech Conference that the company is not planning to buy AOL, Re/code reported this morning. Mayer previously told a number of people that she does not "get" the merger.
