In a Wall Street Journal interview at the San Francisco ad:tech conference, Google (GOOG) advertising chief Sridhar Ramaswamy commented on the conversation rate from mobile ad viewership to actual mobile sales, stating, "As phones get bigger the [screen] space issue becomes less challenging... [My six-inch phone] is essentially a tablet. People’s ability to navigate sites and fill out forms and such goes up tremendously." Ramaswamy also offered commentary on Facebook's (FB) advertising metrics, asking, "How many of Facebook’s video views are engaged views?" The Journal notes that Google's YouTube waits 30 seconds to register a video view, while Facebook counts a view "more quickly." Reference Link

08:23 EDTAMZNAmazon.com price target raised to $520 on bullish trends at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley raised Amazon.com's price target to $520 from $450 on bullish trends and multiple sources of potential upside. The firm's analyst believes the 2016 consensus gross profit view is 5% too low and implies a deceleration to 0% in 2016, which has never happened. Morgan Stanley said fulfillment costs per unit are falling for the first time since 2010 and will continue in 2015, but expects a return to investment in 2016. The firm also said international retail losses aren't as bad as perceived and believes they will moderate in 2016, given recent incremental discipline. Morgan believes Street estimates for AWS are too conservative, given its easy comps and the Q1 margin upside. As a result, Morgan Stanley raised its gross profit estimates for Amazon by 1% for 2015 and by 2% for 2016 and keeps its Overweight rating on the shares.
08:15 EDTGOOGSalesforce acquisition still possible, says JMP Securities
After Salesforce reported stronger than expected results, JMP Securities indicated that the results, along with statements by the company's CEO, make an acquisition seem less likely. However, the firm continues to believe that Google (GOOG), Oracle (ORCL), or Microsoft (MSFT) could buy the company. All three potential acquirers have significant cash and strong potential synergies with Salesforce, and the world is moving to the cloud, the firm explained. It raised its price target on Salesforce to $80 from $75 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said he does not expect Google's (GOOG) addition of a "Buy" button for mobile e-commerce hurting Amazon.com (AMZN) over the next 1 to 3 years, but he does believe Google's plan presents a longer-term threat to "chip away" at Amazon's growth rate. However, Munster thinks it will be "next to impossible" for Google to replicate Amazon's core infrastructure and customer experience and he keeps an Overweight rating and $475 price target on Amazon shares.
