06:59 EDTYELPFacebook and Google more 'Yelp-like' than ever, says Northland
Northland analyst Darren Aftahi says Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG, GOOGL) and (AMZN) have recently added new features that focus on improved local search as well as tools enabling easier business-consumer communication. Facebook and Google are now more "Yelp-like" than ever, Aftahi tells investors in a research note. And while Apple's (AAPL) new "swipe right" feature could drive a near-term surge in Yelp (YELP) app downloads, it may translate into lower engagement on the Yelp app over longer term, the analyst argues. He remains cautious on Yelp's growth prospects and cut his price target for the stock to $17.75 from $21.50. Shares of the local business review site closed yesterday down 25c to $23.10. Aftahi has an Underperform rating on the stock, his firm's equivalent of a sell.

20:08 EDTFEYEChinese president visits U.S. amid cybersecurity, copyright worries
As part of his first official U.S. visit, Chinese president Xi Jinping held a meeting with American business leaders on Wednesday to address concerns of copyright infringement and cybersecurity, among numerous topics. In attendance were corporate giants from both nations, including Microsoft (MSFT), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Cisco (CSCO), Alibaba (BABA), Tencent (TCEHY), and Baidu (BIDU), according to media reports. COPYRIGHT CONCERNS: Responding to oft-cited concerns of copyright infringement by Chinese companies, Xi said China will "stand firm to protect" the intellectual property rights of American companies, according to Wall Street Journal coverage of the event. Note that in late 2014, China began establishing specialized courts to deliberate on intellectual property rights cases, and Xi commented Wednesday that "the newly established IPR courts are working smoothly. This means there will be much stronger IPR protection which will serve the interests of foreign businesses as well as Chinese companies." Chinese consumer electronics company Xiaomi is perhaps the most talked-about firm when it comes to the matter, with media outlets frequently criticizing its alleged "copying" of Apple design sensibilities. In mid-July, Xiaomi VP of global operations Hugo Barra told Bloomberg that the company is preparing to enter U.S. markets, though he cautioned that the launch could be "much more" than a year away as it seeks to build up its patent portfolio. CYBERSECURITY TENSIONS: Wednesday's meeting comes in the wake of numerous high-profile "hack attacks," with Sony (SNE), American Airlines (AAL), Anthem (ANTM), United Airlines (UAL), and Target (TGT) all reporting digital security breaches in recent years. Xi has consistently denied the involvement of state-backed hackers, but tensions have nevertheless arisen as cybersecurity firms such as FireEye (FEYE) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) backtrace connections to the country. Cybersecurity intrusions originating from China have recently slowed ahead of Xi's visit, according to Reuters, with Kevin Mandia of security firm Mandiant telling the publication, "In my gut, I feel like the Chinese and the U.S. over the next couple of years are going to figure this out."

12:16 EDTFEYEPiper says reseller event positive for Palo Alto, Imperva, CyberArk
Piper Jaffray analyst Andrew Nowinski says his investor briefing with a large security reseller yielded positive feedback on Palo Alto (PANW), Imperva (IMPV) and CyberArk (CYBR). The reseller's customers' top spending priority is now inside threat protection, which bodes well for Imperva and CyberArk, Nowinski tells investors in a research note. Further, their growth with Palo Alto continues to ramp and should exceed 50% in 2016, the analyst adds. Nowinski found comments around FireEye (FEYE) "slightly more cautious" with some viewing the Mandiant service organization as competitive to their professional service offerings.
