13:17 EDTFB, YHOOAOL 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.
12:58 EDTFBFacebook technical notes ahead of results
There is a potential bearish head and shoulders on the daily chart that will become active below the neckline at the $74 area. Downside potential for that pattern if it becomes active on worse than expected results or outlook would be to the $66 area. If the news is a positive surprise, resistance levels to watch as upside objectives would be at $80.04 and then the 52-week high and lifetime high at $82.17. A breakout above the life high would leave open a run to the $85 area.
12:52 EDTYHOOOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday as a blowout quarter from Apple (AAPL) offset a bit of the earnings season jitters that several Dow members' misses had sent through the market yesterday. The market saw its highs a short time after the open, as the better than expected earnings reports from both Apple and Boeing (BA) drove an early bounce. The U.S. averages gave up all their gains and moved into the red for a moment, but have managed to drift higher again following the close of the European markets. Next up is the Fed’s rate announcement and accompanying statement, which is due out shortly. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., crude oil inventories built up by 8.87M barrels last week, versus the consensus forecast for a build of 3.85M barrels. The price of WTI crude was down 2.5% near noon following the report and dipped back below $45 per barrel earlier in the morning. The Federal Reserve’s rate announcement is due out this afternoon at 2:00 pm ET. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple jumped nearly 8% after the tech giants first quarter results handily topped estimates. A number of analysts hiked their price targets for the stock after the report, with JPMorgan raising its price target for Apple shares to $140 from $112 and Cantor increasing its price target to a "Street high" $160 from $143. Of note, Apple also said that Apple Watch is expected to ship in April... Yahoo (YHOO) shares rose 2.3% after the company reported earnings and announced plans to split into two companies: one that will own Yahoo’s core operating business and its stake in Yahoo Japan and another that will hold a legacy operating business and Yahoo’s remaining 15% stake in Alibaba (BABA). Yahoo plans for a tax-free spin-off of the company's remaining 384M shares of Alibaba, valued at $40B based on the closing price on January 26, and people familiar with the matter told Financial Times that the decision "significantly increases" the chances of Alibaba buying back that stake. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Abiomed (ABMD), which jumped 30% after announcing that the Impella RP System has received FDA approval under a Humanitarian Device Exemption and raising its FY15 revenue guidance. Also higher following their earnings reports were Freescale Semiconductor (FSL), which rose 20%, U.S. Steel (X), which gained 14%, and Electronic Arts (EA), which advanced 14%. Among the noteworthy losers was Pilgrim's Pride (PPC), which dropped 6% as its shares went "ex-special dividend," meaning investors buying the stock from here forth will not be entailed to the $5.77 per share special dividend, which is payable on February 17. Also lower following their earnings reports were Radware (RDWR), which fell over 13%, and Ethan Allen (ETH), which dropped more than 12%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 71.28, or 0.41%, to 17,458.49, the Nasdaq was up 31.54, or 0.67%, to 4,713.03, and the S&P 500 was up 5.31, or 0.26%, to 2,034.86.
