10:21 EDTFBRising competition may weigh on PayPal margins, analyst says
Research firm Piper Jaffray warned that PayPal continues to face increased competition, which may weigh on its results. Meanwhile, the company announced a change in its Chief Technology Officer. PIPER STICKS WITH SELL RATING: Other leading digital payment systems are becoming more competitive with PayPal's offering, according to well-known Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster. More financial and technology competitors - including Visa (V), MasrterCard (MA), Google (GOOG,GOOGL), Samsung and Apple (AAPL) - are offering "similar functionality" to PayPal, Munster believes. Moreover, Apple and and Samsung will begin accepting mobile Web payments in 2016, intruding on PayPal's core competency, and Facebook (FB) is looking to partner with multiple players in the space, Munster noted. The credit card networks are poised to launch online checkout systems, further increasing PayPal's competition, Munster warned. In the face of all this competition, PayPal's appeal to its customers is questionable, according to the analyst, who kept a $33 price target and Underweight rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: PayPal announced that its CTO, James Barrese, would resign "to take time off." Barrese will be replaced, effective April 1, by Sri Shivananda, who led eBay's (EBAY) Global Platform and Infrastructure team, PayPal reported. Shivananda's team has worked closely with PayPal, the company noted. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, PayPal slipped about 1% to $33.30.

19:59 EDTFBFrance gives Facebook three months to comply with data collection laws
France's Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertes, or CNIL, issued formal notice to Facebook to comply with the country's Data Protection Act within three months. The agency explained that, after performing on site and online inspections of the company's policies, CNIL discovered several "failures" on the part of Facebook. Specifically, CNIL said the company "collects, without prior information, data concerning the browsing activity of Internet users who do not have a Facebook account... The social network collects data concerning the sexual orientation and the religious and political views without the explicit consent of account holders. In addition, Internet users are not informed on the sign up form with regard to their rights and the processing of their personal data. The website also sets cookies that have an advertising purpose without properly informing and obtaining the consent of Internet users. Facebook compiles all the information it has on account holders to display targeted advertising... The company provides no tools for account holders to prevent such compilation, which thereby violates their fundamental rights and interests, including their right to respect for private life. Facebook transfers personal data to the United States on the basis of Safe Harbor, although the Court of Justice of the European Union declared invalid such transfers in its ruling of October 6, 2015." If Facebook does not comply within the time limit, CNIL noted it will appoint a "rapporteur" who may refer the matter to an agency committee to consider a possible sanction. Reference Link

The NFL is shopping the web streaming rights for Thursday Night Football and has held talks with Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Yahoo (YHOO), Facebook (FB), Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T), reports Bloomberg, citing sources. Though some of the companies rejected the high price asked by the league, Yahoo, Verizon, and AT&T are expected to bid, the sources told Bloomberg. The NFL is not pursuing a longterm relationship, and will instead use the next several years to explore various distribution models in preparation for selling a broader array of digital rights near 2021, the report said.

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
