16:38 EDTHSCHarsco signs expanded 15-year mill services contract valued at $125M
Harsco announced a new 15-year contract for onsite mill services at the Tangshan plate mill facility of China's largest steelmaker, Hebei Iron & Steel, or HBIS, Group.

06:27 EDTVZPiper's Munster says Yahoo growth to remain challenged for years
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says Yahoo's (YHOO) core business "seems even more challenged than before" following the company's Q4 results. Yahoo's fundamental growth challenges "will remain for multiple years," Munster tells investors in a post-earnings research note where he cut his price target for the shares to $31 from $39. He keeps an Overweight rating on Yahoo, however, pointing out that the shares still trade below a fully taxed value for both its Alibaba (BABA) and Yahoo Japan (YAHOY) stakes. The current share price seems to imply zero value for the core business, which is unfair given Verizon's (VZ) $4.4B acquisition of AOL last year, Munster contends. He believes Alibaba still provides upside to the story. Yahoo is trading down 51c to $28.55 in pre-market trading following its Q4 results.

06:26 EDTVZStifel cuts Twitter to Sell after noting Yahoo has significantly more users
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Sell from Hold after "materially lowering" his forward estimates for the company. Twitter is a product that has "never fully developed into a sustainable public company," Devitt tells investors in a research note. To those that believe the microblog's 320M active user base is significant, the analyst points out that Yahoo (YHOO) still reports 1B monthly active users across its network and AOL's final public disclosure last year prior to its acquisition by Verizon (VZ) still showed nearly 200M unique visitors. Twitter will be challenged to reach its near- and long-term financial expectations, the analyst contends. Devitt points out that Facebook (FB) continues to generate over two times as much advertising revenue per monthly active user in the U.S. as Twitter. He has a $14 price target for the shares. Twitter closed yesterday up $1.10 to $17.90 after The Information reported that Silver Lake and investor Marc Andreessen have "considered some sort of deal" for the microblog operator.
