12:45 EDTYHOOEarnings Preview: Yahoo may announce Alibaba plans with Q4 earnings
Yahoo (YHOO) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings after the market close on Tuesday, January 27 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Yahoo is a digital media company that provides properties and services such as Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! News. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 29c on revenue of $1.19B. The consensus range is 17c-57c for EPS, and $1.16B-$1.22B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Yahoo reported Q3 EPS 52c against estimates of 30c on revenue ex-tac of $1.09B against estimates of $1.04B. The company reported Q3 GAAP display revenue down 5% to $447M and Q3 AAP search revenue up 4% to $452M. Looking ahead, Yahoo expected Q4 revenue ex-TAC $1.14B-$1.18B, Q4 non-GAAP net income $190M-$230M, and Q4 adjusted EBITDA $340M-$380M. Yahoo also said Tumblr monthly active users exceeds 1B, up 6% vs. last year. In regards to the Alibaba (BABA) sale, Yahoo expected taxes of $3.3B in Q1. NEWS: In the past quarter, Starboard and other major Yahoo supporters have voiced their support for a combination with AOL (AOL). In a letter to Yahoo's CEO and board, Starboard also said Yahoo should explore monetization for non-core minority equity investments. In a separate NY Times report, other major unnamed shareholders are collaborating to push for a merger with AOL. The Associated Press also reported that Yahoo may announce its plans for Alibaba during its Q4 earnings report. The report noted that investors hope CEO Marissa Mayer will spin off the $37B stake to ease potential taxes. Yahoo has also been rumored to be in talks to acquire a cable network. Re/code's Kara Swisher, however, said Yahoo is not buying CNN and Variety reported Yahoo has not held talks to buy Food Network from Scripps (SNI). During a Credit Suisse Technology Conference in December, Yahoo's CFO said the company's total headcount has been taken down. The company also noted that its PC display business has been challenged, but mobile is growing. IT will continue to invest in Search and is looking at new ways to monetize Flickr. STREET RESEARCH: Ahead of the Q4 earnings, BGC Financial said Yahoo is unlikely to announce a spin-out with earnings. Citigroup meanwhile believes an Alibaba spin-off will likely occur in the second half of 2015 as Yahoo begins to return to focus on its core business. Citi adds that core Yahoo is showing "green shoots "as fast growing mobile revenue become a bigger part of overall results. FBR Capital sees positive risk/reward for Yahoo shares ahead of Q4 earnings, saying expectations are low for core Yahoo business at a time when engagement is improving. PRICE ACTION: Yahoo shares have risen more than 19%, since the first day of trading following the company's Q3 report. In Tuesday afternoon trading ahead of the Q4 report, Yahoo shares are trading up 2.3%.

11:14 EDTINTCMicrosoft sinks after outlook brings multiple downgrades
Shares of Microsoft (MSFT) are falling after the company last night issued guidance for its quarter ending in March that came in significantly below analysts' expectations. JPMorgan, Citigroup, MKM Partners and Nomura responded to the company's results by downgrading the stock. BACKGROUND: Microsoft's revenue guidance for its March quarter missed expectations, driven by U.S. dollar strength, and continued weakness in China, Russia and Japan, according to JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy. The company's second quarter results were roughly in-line with expectations, but its software sales came in below the consensus outlook, as customers shifted to cheaper Web-based products. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, JPMorgan's Murphy downgraded the stock to Neutral for Overweight. Microsoft plans to spend more money than anticipated going forward, according to the analyst, who consequently cut his fiscal 2015 earnings per share forecast for the company by 8%. The reduced profit outlook could delay the stock's move above $50, warned Murphy, who reduced his price target on the name to $47 from $53. But the analyst did note that the tech giantís commercial cloud revenue growth jumped 114% year-over-year last quarter, a higher growth rate than during the same period a year earlier. Citigroup cut its rating on Microsoft to Sell from Neutral, saying that the company's earnings headwinds are becoming clearer. The firm set a $38 price target on the stock. Both Nomura and MKM Partners cut its ratings on the name to Neutral from Buy. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Microsoft fell 9.55 to $42.50. Other companies
