07:19 EDTFBFacebook being scrutinized on several fronts in Europe, NY Times reports
In recent months, several different European regulators have been examining facets of Facebook's (FB) operations and it remains to be seen whether the social network operator has learned from the past mistakes of companies such as Intel (INTC), Microsoft (MSFT) and Google (GOOG) in terms of navigating Europe’s legal system, said The New York Times. The European Union is looking into whether Facebook unfairly favors its own services, the region’s top court will issue a preliminary decision next month on whether Facebook can continue transferring user data between Europe and the U.S. and a number of EU data protection watchdogs are questioning Facebook’s privacy settings, the report noted.

In a Wall Street Journal interview at the San Francisco ad:tech conference, Google (GOOG) advertising chief Sridhar Ramaswamy commented on the conversation rate from mobile ad viewership to actual mobile sales, stating, "As phones get bigger the [screen] space issue becomes less challenging... [My six-inch phone] is essentially a tablet. People’s ability to navigate sites and fill out forms and such goes up tremendously." Ramaswamy also offered commentary on Facebook's (FB) advertising metrics, asking, "How many of Facebook’s video views are engaged views?" The Journal notes that Google's YouTube waits 30 seconds to register a video view, while Facebook counts a view "more quickly." Reference Link

10:55 EDTYHOOAlibaba climbs after Bernstein says mobile, margin potential underappreciated
Research firm Bernstein initiated coverage of Chinese e-commerce gaint Alibaba (BABA) with an Outperform rating, saying that the Street is underestimating the company's potential to grow volumes and improve margins. WHAT'S NEW: Analysts are underestimating the gross merchandise volumes, or GMV, that Alibaba's Chinese e-commerce websites can generate, Bernstein analyst Carlos Kirjner wrote in a note to investors today. Also being underestimated is the company's ability to monetize its GMV, the analyst believes. Mobile will account for the vast majority of volume and monetization of mobile will improve to match or exceed those of PC, according to Kirjner. The Street is also not fully recognizing Alibaba's ability to increase its margins as monetization rises and its hiring slows, the analyst believes. Alibaba's stock may be volatile as the transition to mobile occurs and monetization of PC weakens, but continued GMV growth and improved mobile monetization should enable the company to beat expectations a year from now and beyond, he wrote. The analyst set a $120 price target on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Alibaba gained 2.4% to trade near $93 per share. Yahoo (YHOO), which stated yesterday that its continues to work toward completing the planned spin-off of its remaining stake in Alibaba Group in the fourth quarter of this year, is up nearly 1.5% to $43.41 this morning.

06:41 EDTYHOOCantor sees 'cloud of uncertainty' around Yahoo plans
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali believes comments yesterday from the IRS's Office of Associate Chief Counsel regarding tax treatment of certain spinoffs bring a "cloud of uncertainty" around Yahoo's (YHOO) plans to hold a tax-free spinoff of its shares in Alibaba (BABA). Isaac Zimbalist, Senior Technician Reviewer at the IRS' Office Associate Chief Counsel, said that the agency will now hold in abeyance any ruling requests received with regard to spinoffs, according to Bloomberg. Squali reiterates a Buy rating on Yahoo, however, saying shares at $41 remain compelling. His analysis of varying tax treatments of Yahoo's Alibaba spin yields a $16 per share negative impact under a worst case scenario relative to his $60 fair value estimate. Yahoo closed yesterday down $3.38 to $40.98 after Zimbalist's comments brought a late day selloff.
