14:28 EDTUALAirlines fall after Justice Department said to probe possible collusion
Major U.S. airline stocks are dropping precipitously in intraday trading following a report of a Justice Department investigation into potential "unlawful coordination" between companies attempting to artificially limit growth to keep fares high. WHAT'S NEW: The Associated Press has obtained a document showing that the U.S. Justice Department is investigating whether major airlines might be colluding to slow their growth in order to maintain high airfares. A spokesperson for the Department confirmed that it is probing airlines over possible "unlawful coordination," though she did not name specific companies in the sector. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Today's report of possible collusion within the industry follows a period of volatility among airline stocks in late May and early June on concerns over undisciplined capacity growth and price competition. Following some recovery in the stocks, a Barron's cover story on June 20 predicated a potential 15%-50% upside in airlines and specifically cited high fares. PRICE ACTION: Shares of American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), Southwest (LUV), United Continental (UAL) and JetBlue (JBLU) are all down over 4.5% in afternoon trading and continue to drop.

09:46 EDTGOOGCriteo rises after said to add Alibaba, Target as customers
Shares of digital marketing solutions provider Criteo (CRTO) are rising in early trading after research firm Pacific Crest raised its price target on the stock. The firm also notes that it appears Criteo has recently added Alibaba (BABA) and Target (TGT) as customers. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors this morning, Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson said that the firm's checks indicate that Criteo now has cookies on 49% of the top 100 retail and travel websites in the U.S. Wilson noted that Google (GOOG) has 76% of the top 100, but suggested also that its heavy overlap with Criteo reinforces the view that the two companies' cookies serve different purposes. Wilson said Target was a notable Criteo win in the U.S. during Q2, while also saying the firm discovered that some Alibaba sites outside of China now have a Criteo cookie for the first time. Wilson raised his 2016 estimates for Criteo citing the continued strong checks and increased the firm's price target on the stock to $65 from $55. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Criteo grained $2.30, or 4.8%, to $49.97.
