06:22 EDTFBWall Street view of Yelp soured by higher costs, slowing user growth, WSJ says
Wall Street sentiment towards Yelp (YELP) has soured as the company struggles with rising costs and weakening user growth, Steven Russollilo of the Wall Street Journal's Ahead of the tape says. With the company poised to report Q4 results Monday, Yelp is closer to falling below its $15 IPO price for the first time, which seemed very unlikely a few years ago when its shares were trading above $100, the Journal says. The company has nearly tripled its employee count over the past three years, but generates a lower revenue per employee than multiple tech companies, including Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOG), the report says. In addition, Yelp's niche market is becoming increasingly competitive, with companies like Google diverting traffic to its own listings, the report says. Reference Link

10:40 EDTZNGA, GRPNStifel warns Twitter may go way of tech busts, cuts to Sell
Twitter (TWTR) is giving up nearly all of yesterday's gains after Fortune and The Wall Street Journal poured cold water on a report that private equity firm Silver Lake might be considering making a strategic investment in the company. Additionally weighing on the stock are a Business Insider report claiming that the number of tweets has declined by more than 50% in the last 18 months and research firm Stifel downgrading the stock to Sell. WHAT'S NEW: Yesterday morning, tech website The Information reported that venture capitalist Marc Andreessen and private equity firm Silver Lake have considered making a deal involving Twitter. However, Silver Lake isn't looking to make a deal with Twitter, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing an unnamed source. The Journal's article echoes a report yesterday afternoon by Fortune, which also quoted an unnamed source as saying that Silver Lake isn't interested in buying Twitter. Also, according to Business Insider, the number of daily tweets on Twitter has plummeted by more than 50% since August 2014. The report based its estimate on a sampling of data from the website's application programming interface. Last month, there were 303M tweets per day on average, down from the peak of an average of 661M per day in August 2014, when the World Cup was occurring, the website stated. Moreover, according to the data, Twitter has about 130M active users, versus the company's estimate of up to 320M monthly active users. STIFEL SAY SELL: Stifel analyst Scott Devitt downgraded Twitter to Sell form Hold, saying that it has "never fully developed into a sustainable public company." Yahoo (YHOO) says that it has 1B monthly active users, but the market valuation of Yahoo's core business is "much lower" than that of Twitter, which has a significantly smaller user base, Devitt stated. Additionally, Internet companies Groupon (GRPN) and Zynga (ZNGA) became well-known and obtained tens of millions of users, only to see their stocks plummet, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Twitter's product has not changed significantly since the company hired a new CEO three months ago and it will have difficulty meeting financial expectations over the short-term and longer term, given the size of its user base, said Devitt, who has a $14 price target for the shares. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Twitter fell 6.3% to $16.78. The stock had gained 6.55% yesterday on the heels of Jessica Lessin's report in The Information.

06:26 EDTFBStifel 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.
