10:12 EDTPCLNGoogle climbs after Goldman upgrade, Cantor endorsement
The shares of Google (GOOG, GOOGL) are rallying after Goldman Sachs upgraded the search giant's stock and Cantor Fitzgerald named the stock as one of the top five Internet names to buy amid the market's recent selloff. WHAT'S NEW: Google is in the early innings of a long-term margin expansion process as the search giant intensifies its focus on cost cutting, Goldman analyst Heather Bellini wrote in a note to investors today. Moreover, after conducting checks, Bellini is more upbeat on the company's ability to increase its monetization of YouTube and mobile search. The analyst, who believes that cost cutting combined with the increased monetization is starting to move the needle for the company, hiked her price target on Google's Class A stock to $800 from $660, upgraded the stock and added the shares to Goldman's Americas Conviction List. Meanwhile, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali named Google as one of his top five Internet stocks to buy amid the market's recent volatility. Google is "relatively resilient," given its 91% share of the global search market as of July and its $61B of net cash as of the end of Q2, the analyst believes. Moreover, the company has virtually no exposure to China and its new corporate structure should improve its transparency, Squali believes. He kept a $720 price target and Buy rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The other four companies on Squali's list of top Internet stocks are Amazon (AMZN), Priceline (PCLN), Facebook (FB), and Alibaba (BABA). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Google's Class A shares rose 4.4% to $640 and its Class C shares advanced nearly 5% to $610.
07:25 EDTPCLNCantor names top five Internet names to buy during selloff
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali said he "won't attempt to call the bottom" but identified his top five Internet and Media names to buy amid the recent market volatility, all of which have dominance in their respective markets, higher than peer level growth and valuations that he views as reasonable. Squali, who noted that he views concerns over macro risks and China to be overblown, called out Google (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN), Priceline (PCLN), Facebook (FB) and Alibaba (BABA) as having an attractive risk/reward given the selloff in recent sessions. The firm has Buy ratings on all five of the stocks named above.

11:09 EDTFSLR, SPWRGoldman says SolarCity attractive after sharp pullback
SolarCity (SCTY) shares are climbing in the down market after Goldman Sachs contended in a note to investors today that the stock is attractive following its recent sharp retreat, The company probably won't be affected by issues that are causing investors to worry about the solar sector, the firm believes. WHAT'S NEW: Noting that SolarCity's stock had tumbled 27% in the last month before today's open, Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee wrote that the shares are being dragged down by worries about financing and cost of capital that are affecting the entire solar sector. However, he contended that these issues are having only a "limited" impact on SolarCity. On August 13, the company successfully sold asset-backed securities and it said that more such sales are likely to occur in the near-term, Lee noted. Meanwhile, SolarCity isn't being affected by the cost of capital increases that other solar companies are experiencing, the analyst reported. Before today's open, the stock was near a two year low, even though SolarCity's fundamentals are still "strong," Lee believes. Additionally, the largest U.S. solar trade show, which is expected to begin on September 14, could boost solar stocks, as it has historically been a catalyst for the sector, the analyst stated. SolarCity may provide guidance about the outlook for its Silevo solar panel manufacturing subsidiary in the second half of 2015, and the guidance could boost the stock, Lee believes. The risk/reward ratio of SolarCity's stock is positive, according to the analyst, who has a Conviction List Buy and $85 price target on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the solar space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunEdison (SUNE), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SolarCity advanced 5.3% to $43.18.

14:49 EDTCZRCaesars reaches restructuring support agreement with first lien bank lenders
Caesars Entertainment and Caesars Entertainment Operating Co. announced they have entered into a bank restructuring support agreement. The agreement, which is effective immediately, "secures the support" of CEOC's largest and most senior creditor constituencies and represents a "key milestone" in Caesars Entertainment and CEOC's efforts to implement a consensual restructuring of CEOC, according to Caesars. "CEOC's restructuring is now supported by CEOC's first lien bank lenders and first lien bondholders, which represent the most senior $12B of CEOC's capital structure," said the company. Caesars and CEOC continue to engage in discussions with junior creditors to build additional support for the previously announced second lien restructuring agreement. "However, the senior creditors' support of today's agreement paves the way toward a confirmable plan for the restructuring of CEOC," commented Caesars. The bank RSA is substantially similar to the previously announced bond RSA.
