19:44 EDTGOOGGoogle advertising head remarks that larger phones may help mobile ads, WSJ says
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

08:15 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.

07:48 EDTTWCAltice could have latitude for TWC deal near $200 per share, says Wunderlich
After The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg said that Time Warner Cable has received a preliminary approach from Europe's Altice, Wunderlich estimated that TWC is worth $180 on an organic-only basis but that Altice could have latitude for a nominal deal price near $200 per share given the high value of Altice's equity. Applying the same multiple as what Altice just paid for Suddenlink to a deal for TWC yields a $230 takeout price, though this would be a "big reach," the firm added. Wunderlich has a Buy rating and $180 price target on Time Warner Cable shares.

07:36 EDTTWCAutomakers to start V2V car rollouts with spectrum at a premium, WSJ says
General Motors' (GM) upcoming Cadillac CTS is the only car firmly scheduled to launch in the U.S. with vehicle-to-vehicle communications, or V2V, but the industry has promised that V2V will revolutionize safety and Cisco (CSCO) joined automakers earlier this month to brief the FCC on plans to test airwave sharing soon, said The Wall Street Journal. However, cable and telecom companies are pressuring carmakers to give up a part of the airwaves marked for V2V to be available for broader use, the report added. Publicly traded automakers include Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), Honda (HMC), Toyota (TM) and Volkswagen (VLKAY), while cable and telecom companies include Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), Sprint (S), T-Mobile (TMUS), Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC) and Charter (CHTR).

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.
