13:11 EDTYELPAlibaba unlikely to make competing offer for zulily, say Baird
zulily (ZU) shareholder Alibaba (BABA) is unlikely to make a competing takeover bid for the online retailer, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors in a research note. Alibaba, which upped its stake in zulily to 9% in May, likely views the company as an investment rather than a vehicle to enter the U.S. market, Sebastian argues. This morning, Liberty Interactive (QVCA) announced it had reached an agreement to acquire zulily for $18.75 per share or $2.4B. The analyst sees strategic benefits from the deal. Increased takeover activity in the small-cap internet space could support the valuations of the remaining independents, including ChannelAdvisor (ECOM), Yelp (YELP), Groupon (GRPN), Angie's List (ANGI) and RetailMeNot (SALE), Sebastian writes. Shares of zulily are soaring 47% to $18.50 following the takeover agreement.

07:00 EDTSYMCSecurity stocks underperformed despite 'solid' results, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Andrew Nowinski says the security stocks he covers have underperformed the Nasdaq composite despite delivering "solid beat-and-raise" results. With the exception of Fortinet (FTNT) and Imperva (IMPV), the remaining security stocks within Nowinski's security coverage universe have all underperformed the Nasdaq. Symantec (SYMC) has underperformed by 0.7%, CyberArk by 1.6%, Proofpoint (PFPT) by 5.3%, Palo Alto by 7.4%, FireEye (FEYE) by 8.4% and Barracuda by 36.7%, Nowinski tells investors this morning in a research note. Investors remain concerned with the potential for a moderation in spending, the analyst believes. However, his channel checks with resellers suggest demand should remain strong for the next 12 months. Nowinski views the recent pullback in the sector as an attractive buying opportunity. Stocks with the most attractive valuations include Barracuda Networks (CUDA), CyberArk Software (CYBR), Fortinet (FTNT) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW), Nowinski writes. Wells Fargo this morning upgraded shares of CyberArk to Outperform.
