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.

07:12 EDTYHOOYahoo volatility increases on uncertainty of taxes on Alibaba spin-off
Yahoo (YHOO) May weekly call option implied volatility is at 66, June is at 40, July is at 35; compared to its 52-week average of 33, suggesting large near term price movement on concerns that a possible change in U.S. tax regulations would affect Yahoo's planned spinoff of its stake in Alibaba (BABA).

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.

16:25 EDTYHOOOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks began the session deep in negative territory as bond yields in Europe and the U.S. were moving higher. The market saw its lows shortly after the open and soon began to recapture some of its losses. By noon, the losses were cut in half and the Dow made it all the way back to positive ground by the afternoon. Unable to gather any upside momentum, the rally stalled and the averages limped into the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the National Federation of Independent Business' small business optimism rose 1.7 points to 96.9 in April, versus expectations for a 96.0 reading. The JOLTs report showed job openings fell 150K to 4.99M in March, versus expectations for 5.11M openings. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield climbed at high as 2.37% earlier in the session, which was its highest intraday mark since last November, before easing back by midday. Outside of the U.S., bond yields surged on 10-year notes in Japan, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Germany. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of AOL (AOL) advanced $7.93, or 18.62%, to $50.52 after Verizon (VZ) agreed to buy the company for $50 per share in a deal valued at $4.4B. Verizon's John Stratton, speaking at the Jefferies 2015 Global TMT Conference, said the AOL deal was primarily about ad technology and Re/code reported that "one scenario" the service has heard about is that Verizon plans to spin off some or all of the content operations it is acquiring by buying AOL, such as the Huffington Post. Yahoo (YHOO) also rose 24c, or 0.55%, to $43.84, as Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali said he now views it as the "last remaining large scale digital media company of its kind." MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Pall Corp. (PLL), which advanced $19.31, or 19.44%, to $118.62 after The Wall Street Journal reported that the company is near a possible sale and listed Danaher (DHR) and Thermo Fisher (TMO) as potential buyers. Also higher was Pain Therapeutics (PTIE), which gained 68c, or 35.05%, to $2.62 after announcing that a study of its lead drug candidate, that is specifically designed to discourage certain common methods of drug tampering and misuse, demonstrated with statistical significance that both intact and chewed Remoxy were less "liked" than immediate-release oxycodone on the two primary endpoints of Drug Liking and Drug High. Among the noteworthy losers was ITT Educational Services (ESI), which plunged $1.75, or 43.53%, to $2.27 after the SEC announced that it had charged the company, along with its CEO and CFO, with fraud. Also lower were shares of NewLink Genetics (NLNK), which dropped $15.59, or 29.9%, to $36.55 after stating that it would continue its flagship IMPRESS trial as planned despite disclosing the FDA did not endorse management's plan to change the statistical analysis plan as defined in the original protocol. INDEXES: The Dow fell 36.94, or 0.2%, to 18,068.23, the Nasdaq slid 17.38, or 0.35%, to 4,976.19, and the S&P 500 dropped 6.21, or 0.29%, to 2,099.12.

10:31 EDTYHOOCantor sees higher bid for AOL unlikely, positive on Yahoo
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali downgraded AOL (AOL) two notches to Sell from Buy after Verizon (VZ) agreed to acquire the company for $50 per share. Squali finds the takeover valuation "relatively fair" and believes a higher bidder for AOL is unlikely to emerge. The analyst believes the transaction could be positive for Yahoo (YHOO), which he views as the "last remaining large scale digital Media company of its kind." Squali has a Buy rating on Yahoo with a $60 price target.

07:38 EDTYHOO, FBJefferies puts Google atop list of potential Yelp buyers
Jefferies laid out potential buyers for Yelp (YELP) after the Wall Street Journal reported that the company hired bankers to explore a sale. A Google (GOOG, GOOGL), Yelp (YELP) combination makes the most sense, the firm believes. It points out Google unsuccessfully tried to buy Yelp for $550M in 2009. Other potential buyers include Facebook (FB), Priceline (PCLN), GrubHub (GRUB) and Yahoo (YHOO), the firm notes. Jefferies views Yelp as a highly valuable asset and keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $79 price target. Deutsche Bank today pegged the chances of a Yelp buyout at 60% and estimates a takeout price between $59 and $85 per share. The stock closed yesterday up $8.79 to $47.01 following the Journal's report.
06:22 EDTFBCitigroup sees internet stocks underperforming this summer
Citigroup analyst Mark May says that even with the recent share pullbacks, the broader internet index has still meaningfully outperformed broader indices year-to-date. The group is nearing peak valuations, which could lead to underperformance through the summer, May tells investors today in a research note. He recommends avoiding shares of Twitter (TWTR), LinkedIn (LNKD) and Zillow Group (Z), as the companies are going through business transitions. The analyst believes Amazon.com (AMZN), eBay (EBAY), Yelp (YELP), Netflix (NFLX), GrubHub (GRUB) and Facebook (FB) have company specific factors that should enable them to outperform the internet group over the near term.
