06:45 EDTGOOGGoogle upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon upgraded Google (GOOGL, GOOG) to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target for the stock to $670 from $570. The search giant's Class A shares closed yesterday down 22c to $583.96. The upgrade is not a call on tonight's quarterly results, but reflects a belief that second half of 2015 and 2016 estimates will move higher on margin stabilization, Salmon tells investors in a research note. A focus on investing in key growth areas coupled with a steady revenue outlook should drive Google shares higher, the analyst writes.

08:27 EDTGOOG, FBAdobe says Google display ad strategy underperforms Facebook in Q2
In its "Digital Advertising & Social Intelligence Report" for Q2, Adobe (ADBE) wrote that Facebook's (FB) display ad changes doubled its click-through-rates, or CTRs, year-over-year in the quarter, while Google's (GOOG) display targeting changes reduced its number of ads seen by 22% compared to the prior year and its CTRs were up "only" 24% compared to the same period of last year. The report also contends that the "Mobilegeddon" fears regarding Google's changes to favor mobile friendly sites came true, noting that sites with low mobile engagement saw up to a 10% decrease in organic traffic after the changes were made by the search giant.
