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.

17:36 EDTTWTRTwitter announces full launch of objective-based ad service
In a company blog post, Twitter (TWTR) stated, "Last year, we launched a... way for advertisers to create and optimize their ad campaigns, and only pay for the actions that are aligned with their marketing objectives. After seeing strong results in beta, weíre excited to offer objective-based campaigns, reports and pricing to all advertisers globally, starting today." Based on the beta test of the service, Twitter claims that eBay (EBAY) was able to drive a 59% quarter-over-quarter decrease in average paid cost per link click, while Tableau (DATA) reduced its cost per link click by over 40% quarter-over-quarter. Twitter went on to say, "When creating a new campaign, you can select from one of six objectives -- and our customized workflow will help you choose the best ad format. For example, if you want to drive traffic to your brandís website, you can select a website clicks or conversions campaign... Youíll only be charged when a user clicks on a link to your website -- all other engagements, like a favorite or a retweet, are free. Youíll never pay for actions that arenít relevant to your goal."

11:47 EDTGOOGAmazon unlikely hurt by Google Buy button in next 3 years, says Piper Jaffray
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.
