13:17 EDTGOOGAOL sinks after downgrade, report of no Yahoo interest
Shares of AOL (AOL) are falling after Wells Fargo downgraded the stock to Market Perform from Outperform and CNBC’s David Faber reported that Yahoo has ruled out a potential acquisition of the company. WHAT'S NEW: AOL is likely to encounter increased competition in Internet video advertising, in the wake of acquisitions by Facebook (FB) and Yahoo (YHOO), Wells contended in a note to investors earlier today. Specifically, Facebook's acquisition of Liverail will enable the social network to improve the targeting of its video ads, while Yahoo is using its sales force to find buyers for the video assets of Brightroll, which Yahoo acquired. AOL is also encountering increased competition for internet video ad spending from Google's YouTube, Wells believes. Meanwhile, AOL, along with other Google search partners, may find it more difficult to maintain its current share of queries as more searches are conducted on mobile device, the firm stated. The superior functionality of Google's mobile web and app base search, along with the default search position that Google enjoys on Android devices, create headwinds for AOL and its peers, the firm stated. Wells cut its valuation range on AOL to $49-$51 from $55-$$57. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Activist investor Starboard Value has called on Yahoo to explore the possibility of combining with AOL. CNBC's David Faber, however, after speaking last night with Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, reported that the search giant has ruled out a potential acquisition of AOL. The interview followed Yahoo’s fourth quarter results and announcement that it would carry out a tax free spin-off of its remaining stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA). PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, AOL fell 8% to $44, while yahoo rose 2% to $49.

13:16 EDTGOOGGoogle confirms Google Fiber coming to Atlanta, Charlotte, two other cities
Google said in a blog post, "It’s been nearly five years since we offered to build a fiber-optic network in one U.S. city as an experiment — and were met with overwhelming enthusiasm. Now, Google Fiber is live in Kansas City, Provo and Austin, and we've started to see how gigabit Internet, with speeds up to 100 times faster than today’s basic broadband, can transform cities. It can give them new platforms for economic development and new ways of using technology to improve life for their citizens. And, around the country, it seems to be catching on... Today, we’re happy to announce that Google Fiber is coming to 18 cities across four new metro areas: Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, and Raleigh-Durham. We can’t wait to see what people and businesses across the Southeast U.S. do with gigabit speeds." Google adds, "We’re also continuing to explore bringing fiber to five additional metro areas—Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Antonio and San Jose, and will have updates on these potential Fiber cities later this year."

08:07 EDTGOOGUSPTO Examiner reconfirms patentability of Netlist's LRDIMM patent claims
Netlist (NLST) announced that the Examiner in the consolidated reexamination of U.S. Pat. No. 7,619,912 issued an Answer maintaining the patentability of 92 claims related to LRDIMM. The reexaminations were brought in the United States Patent and Trademark Office by Google (GOOG), Inphi Corporation, and SMART Modular Technologies. The 92 patentable claims are generally directed to the fundamental concept of rank multiplication which is integral to the design of the LRDIMM. The Examiner issued the Answer on January 14, 2015, in response to voluminous appeal briefs filed by Google, Inphi, and SMART Modular. The Examiner considered arguments from all parties and ultimately maintained his conclusions as to the patentability of these claims, while maintaining the rejection of 11 other claims. The parties will now have the opportunity to file rebuttal briefs before the reexamination proceeds to the Patent Trial and Appeals Board for oral arguments, likely later this year or early next. The '912 Patent is also the subject of litigation between Netlist and Google in the Northern District of California and Netlist and Inphi in the Central District of California. Both sets of litigation have been stayed pending the outcome of this and other reexamination proceedings.
