10:27 EDTYHOOAlibaba sets Singles' Day record, analysts start coverage with upbeat notes
Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) generated record sales during the Chinese Singles Day holiday and a number of research firms initiated coverage of the stock with upbeat notes. WHAT'S NEW: Alibaba announced that a record $8B of products had been sold on its website with a few hours left in the Chinese Singles' Day holiday. Many Chinese citizens buy gifts on e-commerce websites during the holiday. During last year's festival, $5.7B of products were purchased on Alibaba's websites. ANALYST INITIATIONS: Oppenheimer analyst Ella Ji initiated coverage of Alibaba with an Outperform rating in a note to investors last night. Alibaba's ecosystem will make it difficult for competitors to challenge it for a long time, Ji believes. The ecosystem also boosts Alibaba's revenue growth and margins, according to the analyst. The e-commerce giant's strong brand, along with its large and loyal customer base, help make it one of the best-positioned companies in the Chinese Internet space, contended the analyst. He predicted that its revenue and profits will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 34% and 32%, respectively, from fiscal 2014 to fiscal 2019. The analyst set a $133 price target on the shares. HSBC earlier today initiated coverage of Alibaba with an Overweight rating. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Needham yesterday afternoon raised its price target for Yahoo (YHOO) shares to $55, citing higher than previously expected trading values for Alibaba. The firm believes Yahoo shares are pricing in negative 6% EBITDA growth for the company, which it views as too pessimistic. Needham, which expects positive EBITDA growth for Yahoo, kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Alibaba fell 2.6% to $116 per share. However, the stock has risen nearly 18% in the last five days.

15:17 EDTJPMCFPB may require added disclosures on prepaid cards, WSJ says
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is expected to propose new rules later this week that will require more disclosure for prepaid debit cards and cracking down on allowing consumers to spend more money on the cards than they have, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The rules come as traditional financial institutions, such as JPMorgan (JPM) and American Express (AXP) have moved into the business and the industryís biggest players donít allow overdrafts so it is unclear whether the new rules will dent industry profits, the report said. Green Dot (GDOT) also does not permit overdrafts and Visa (V) recently excluded overdraft abilities in guidelines for its prepaid cards, the report added. Reference Link
