11:02 EDTEBAYeBay expectations low into quarterly results, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray is positive on shares of eBay (EBAY) going into Wednesday's June quarter report, saying it sees limited downside due to low expectations. Piper believes investors have become "increasingly bearish" on eBay over the past couple of months given the security breach and the change in Google's (GOOG) algorithm. The firm sees these concerns are near term in nature and reiterates an Overweight rating on eBay with a $63 price target.
10:56 EDTFBFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.
10:33 EDTFBFacebook, Twitter slip following cautious valuation comments from Fed
Shares of a number of companies in the social media and biotech industries moved lower following the circulation of cautious comments about their stock valuations that were included in the Federal Reserve's latest Monetary Policy Report. WHAT'S NEW: In the report, presented by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and signed on behalf of the governors by Chair Janet Yellen, the central bank wrote that some broad equity price indexes have increased to all-time highs in nominal terms since the end of 2013, but that valuation measures for the overall market in early July were "generally at levels not far above their historical averages." However, the Fed's report also cautioned that valuation metrics in some sectors do appear substantially "stretched," particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year. As support for its assessment, the Fed noted that ratios of prices to forward earnings for "smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms" remain "high relative to historical norms." PRICE ACTION: Following the circulation of the comments in the Fed report, shares of Facebook (FB) are down 88c, or 1.3%, to $67.02, Twitter (TWTR) is down 24c, or 0.6%, to $38.07 and LinkedIn (LNKD), is down 21c, or 0.1%, to $159.57. Shares of some biotechnology companies including Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) also ticked lower following the circulation of the comments from the Fed's report.

08:03 EDTCMCSAPublic speak out on FCC 'net-neutrality' plan, WSJ says
The Federal Communications Commission's has received more than 677K comments so far from the public on its proposed 'net-neutrality' rules for how broadband providers can treat content traveling over their networks and a random sampling of the input suggests that the agency will have work to do to sell the plan, according to The Wall Street Journal. Companies that provide broadband Internet service include Comcast (CMCSA), AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) Time Warner Cable (TWC), and Cablevision (CVC). Netflix (NFLX) sends a great deal of content over the Internet and strongly supports net neutrality. Reference Link
07:48 EDTPRGOPerrigo could be acquired, says RBC Capital
After Globes suggested that Perrigo has hired an investment bank to sell the company. RBC Capital thinks the company has several attributes that could appeal to potential acquirers, including its ability to serve as an inversion vehicle. However, the firm believes that Perrigo could also acquire another company instead. RBC Capital keeps a $160 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.
07:35 EDTPRGOPerrigo potential buyers list could be limited, says Jefferies
After Globes reported that Perrigo retained an investment bank to assist with a potential merger, Jefferies says the list of potential buyers could be limited since the store brand business is fundamentally a high volume, lower margin model. The firm notes U.S. companies that currently do not have large over-the-counter divisions include Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) and Merck (MRK). Jefferies views the merger speculation surrounding Perrigo as not surprising given the company's strong long-term fundamentals and attractive Irish domicile. It has a Buy rating on the stock with a $160 price target.
