10:03 EDTGOOG, AOL, YHOO, LNKD, YELPLinkedIn price target hiked on ad sales prospects
LinkedIn (LNKD) shares are rising slightly after Piper Jaffray analyst Brian Pitz increased his price target on the shares to $215 from $175 in a note to clients earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: The company should be able to sell more advertising as it has added more content to its website, Pitz contended. The new content will drive more traffic to the website and give marketers more venues in which to advertise, the analyst believes. Meanwhile, customers of the website's Talent Solutions products probably increased their utilization of the products in previous months, ahead of a price hike that takes effect today, Pitz wrote. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that may benefit from a stronger Internet ad environment include AOL (AOL), Yahoo (YHOO), Google (GOOG) and Yelp (YELP). TODAY'S PRICE ACTION: In early trading, LinkedIn added 0.1% to $176.26.

06:47 EDTGOOGGoogle could benefit from losing Safari default status, Business Insider says
Google's (GOOG) revenue could actually rise if Apple (AAPL) decides to drop Google as the default search engine on its Safari web browser, according to Business Insider, which cited a note from Goldman Sachs. If Apple drops Google, 48% of Safari users polled by Goldman said they would utilize Google's search engine anyway, Business Insider quoted Goldman as saying. If Google is able to retain 50%-70% of the ad revenue generated by Safari users after being removed as Safari's default search engine, Google's profits will rise about 5%-10%, since Google pays Apple for its default status, Business Insider quoted Goldman as saying.
