17:12 EDTIBKR, SCHW, NFLX, GM, ETFC, FB, TROX, AMTD, AMZN, APCMarket finishes mixed as Nasdaq sells off into weekend
Stocks ended the week mixed as momentum stocks came under heavy selling pressure late in the week as investors continued to rotate out of a number of technology and biotech names. MACRO NEWS: The U.S. employment report for March showed the economy added 192k jobs for the month, slightly less than economists' forecasts. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 6.7%. Markit's U.S. manufacturing PMI reading earlier in the week also came in a bit below expectations... In China, manufacturing PMI data beat expectations, coming in at a 50.3 reading against expectations for 50.1, with the reading indicating expansion in the world's second largest economy... Headlines continued out of Ukraine, as the U.S. and Europe remain focused on the situation, though U.S. investors have continued to trade less and less, if at all, on news from that region. COMPANY NEWS: General Motors (GM) CEO Mary Barra spent two days testifying on Capitol Hill, fielding questions and accusations about the company's defective ignition switches, which have been blamed in at least 13 deaths. Shares of the carmaker were roughly flat for the week... Anadarko Petroleum (APC) surged after announcing a $5.15B settlement related to environmental damage claims sought by the federal government and creditors of bankrupt Tronox (TROX). Shares of the oil company gained more than 15% Thursday after the news, closing the week up 19% to $101.05... A number of momentum stocks saw aggressive selling in the final two sessions of the week, namely Netflix (NFLX), Amazon (AMZN), and Facebook (FB), among several other Nasdaq constituents from the technology and biotech sectors... Michael Lewis released his latest book, "Flash Boys," which highlights high-frequency trading in the stock market, with Lewis starting his numerous media appearances on last Sunday's "60 Minutes," during which he called the markets "rigged." Concerns over potential changes that could be imposed on brokerage firms by regulators put some pressure on stocks in that space, including Charles Schwab (SCHW), TD Ameritrade (AMTD), E-Trade (ETFC), and Interactive Brokers (IBKR). INDEXES: The Dow was up 0.5% to 16,412.71, the S&P 500 was up 0.4% to 1,865.09, and the Nasdaq was down 0.7% to 4,127.73.

07:38 EDTFBJefferies 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 EDTNFLX, AMZN, FBCitigroup 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.
