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.

Google said on its blog that it is launching the News Lab, "a new effort at Google to empower innovation at the intersection of technology and media. Our mission is to collaborate with journalists and entrepreneurs to help build the future of media. And we’re tackling this in three ways: though ensuring our tools are made available to journalists around the world -- and that newsrooms know how to use them; by getting helpful Google data sets in the hands of journalists everywhere; and through programs designed to build on some of the biggest opportunities that exist in the media industry today. The News Lab is a global effort, with teams in the U.S., U.K., France, and Germany to start -- and we’re also powering the training and research arm of Google’s Digital News Initiative in Europe. Google has created many technologies and platforms that have engaged the media industry. As both the media landscape and technology continue to evolve, we believe we can create a more informed world if technologists and journalists work together -- and we’re excited to be part of the effort."
