06:24 EDTGOOGLResearch shows Google hurts users by skewing search results, WSJ reports
New research by two U.S. academics shows that Google is harming internet users and violating competition laws by skewing search results to favor its own products and services, the Wall Street Journal reports. The study may present a “significant twist” in the European Union’s antitrust investigation into Google’s supposed anticompetitive practices, the report says. The research shows that users were 45% more likely to click on results that were ranked purely by relevance as opposed to the way Google ranks them currently, the Wall Street Journal says.Reference Link

European Union antitrust regulators have sent copies of their charges against Google (GOOG) to critics of the company and given them a month to comment on the charges, Reuters reports, citing one of the complainants. Google has been accused by many companies of abusing its market power and cheating consumers and rivals by tweaking search results to favor its shopping service, the report says. 19 companies, including Microsoft (MSFT) and TripAdvisor (TRIP), are expected to receive the EU charge sheet, Reuters says.

07:51 EDTGOOGLTwitter downgraded to Neutral at MKM Partners on stalled user growth
As previously reported, MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Buy, noting that growth in its user base is stalling out and he sees no catalyst for sentiment to improve in the next two quarters, besides a possible bid from Google (GOOG). Sanderson thinks the company's CEO search brings with it some uncertainty and likely delays user experience improvements, unless Jack Dorsey takes over full-time, but that would require him to give up his CEO post at Square. The firm lowered its estimates on Twitter and cut its price target on the shares to $39 from $57.
