17:48 EDTGOOGNews Corp opposed Google EC settlement offer
Early last week, in a letter to European Commissioner for Competition Joaquín Almunia, News Corp (NWS, NWSA) CEO Robert Thomson opposed Google’s (GOOG) settlement offer with the European Commission, or EC, saying the internet giant is “willing to exploit its dominant market position to stifle competition.” Thomson said News Corp also opposed the proposed five year term of a settlement, noting that “five years is an eternity in internet time.” Citing Google’s “egregious aggregation” of content, Mr. Thomson said that, along with serious commercial damage, there is a “profound social cost” to Google’s actions. “The internet should be a canvas for freedom of expression and for high quality content of enduring value. Undermining the basic business model of professional content creators will lead to a less informed, more vexatious level of dialogue in our society.” "Your decision to reconsider Google's settlement offer comes at a crucial moment in the history of the free flow of information and of a healthy media in Europe and beyond," Mr. Thomson wrote.

05:53 EDTGOOGGoogle unlikely to buy stake in eBay, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says press reports that Google (GOOG) is in talks to purchase a stake in eBay (EBAY) are "largely unsubstantiated" and that the tech giant is unlikely to purchase part of the online marketplace. Munster notes that Google has only a limited history in taking stakes in public companies. He believes Google's general philosophy emphasizes full ownership in key assets as opposed to taking stakes in companies. Munster thinks a more attractive deal could be Google making a full acquisition of eBay's PayPal unit. He notes, however, that eBay has resisted activist investors who have proposed spinning off PayPal. Munster keeps a Neutral rating on eBay shares with a $55 price target. Shares of eBay rallied $1.51 to $52.19 on Friday amid speculation that Google was in talks to take a stake in the company.

12:51 EDTGOOGOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The day’s economic data, including retail sales figures, a report on import prices, and business inventories data, were generally in line with expectations. The economic bright spot was the University of Michigan consumer confidence report which came in higher than expected. The market is on the verge of ending the week lower, which would be its first weekly loss in the last seven. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., sales at retailers climbed 0.6% in August, matching expectations but also representing the fastest pace in four months. Retail sales growth for July was also revised upward to 0.3% from a prior estimate of having been flat. Import prices dropped 0.9% in August, while export prices slipped 0.5%. The University of Michigan preliminary consumer sentiment reading for for September rose to 84.6, beating expectations for it to be up more modestly to 83.3. Business inventories grew 0.4% in July, as expected. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of eBay (EBAY) were up more than 2% near noon after rumors circulated that Google (GOOG) may look to take a stake in the company. However, an eBay spokesperson denied the speculation, telling Reuters that the company has held "no conversations" with Google about acquiring a stake. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was digital marketing services company Conversant (CNVR), which soared 30% after Alliance Data Systems (ADS) agreed to acquire it for about $2.3B in cash and stock. Following last night's announcement of the deal, some Conversant peers rose as well, as Criteo (CRTO) gained almost 5% and TubeMogul (TUBE) rose 1%, while Alliance Data gained over 2%. Among the noteworthy losers was Amarin (AMRN), which dropped 22% after an office within the FDA denied the company's appeal of FDA's rescission of the ANCHOR clinical trial Special Protocol Assessment agreement. Also lower were shares of Ruckus Wireless (RKUS), which fell 5% after one analyst downgraded the shares and another initiated coverage of the stock with an Underweight rating. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 66.43, or 0.39%, to 16,982.57, the Nasdaq was down 19.83, or 0.43%, to 4,571.97, and the S&P 500 was down 10.28, or 0.51%, to 1,987.17.
