06:14 EDTLNKDLinkedIn downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth downgraded LinkedIn to Neutral and removed the stock from his firm's Analyst Focus List after the company issued "significantly softer" Q1 and 2016 guidance. The outlook reflects deceleration in core Hiring Solutions, challenges in Marketing Solutions, the decision to phase out Lead Accelerator and macro/currency headwinds, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes LinkedIn's Sales Solutions offering may be taking longer than expected to build momentum. He cut his price target for the shares to $186 from $300. LinkedIn is trading down 30%, or $58.62, to $134.00 in pre-market trading.
06:01 EDTLNKDAmid selloff, Piper's Munster still believer in LinkedIn
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster attributes the post-earnings pullback in shares of LinkedIn to the company's softer than typical guidance for Q1 and 2016. Investors are concerned with management commentary for Talent Solutions revenue to grow in an implied low-20% range in 2016, a deceleration from 32% in Q4, Munster tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst expects shares to be range bound until LinkedIn reports Q1 results but he remains a believer in the company's long-term story. Munster cut his price target for the shares to $175 from $287 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

14:10 EDTLNKDLinkedIn technical comments ahead of earnings
The $200 level on the upside from current price is an important one for the shares. With a few notable exceptions, that level has held as support since the summer of 2014. If the news is positive, retaking the $200 level would be highly probable. Next resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $209.60, $223.40, and $239.58. If the news is a bearish disappointment, a continued drift below $200 would be probable. This would be a negative for future price, turning the short and intermediate-term trends to bearish. Support below the current price of $190 would be at $185.05, $171.68, and the 52-week low at $165.57. If the 52-week low were taken out on the downside, next support would be at $160.09 and $151.28.

12:44 EDTKSSOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street had an up and down morning, with the Dow swinging by triple digits in either direction. The market opened lower as oil prices lost their early gains, but as oil began to move higher so did stocks. When oil prices met resistance near the $34 a barrel level it began to pare its gains, once again taking stocks with it. The averages are now back in the green as investors await tomorrow's monthly jobs report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Labor Department said that productivity fell at an annual rate of 3% in the fourth quarter, marking the biggest quarterly decline in nearly two years and worse than the expected decline of 2%. Labor costs rose 4.5% in the fourth quarter, versus expectations for an increase of 4.3%. Initial jobless claims rose to 285,000 in the week ended January 30, versus expectations for 277,000 first-time claims. Factory orders declined 2.9% in December, versus expectations for them to be down 2.8% for the month. In Europe, the European Commission lowered its 2016 economic growth forecast for the 19-nation single currency area to 1.7% from the 1.8% expansion the commission had forecast in November. The Bank of England also cut its economic growth forecasts, saying it now expects Britain's economy to grow 2.2% this year and 2.3% next year, which is down from the 2.5% growth for 2016 and 2.6% in 2017 that it previously predicted. Additionally, the BoE maintained its bank rate and held the size of its asset purchase program steady. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of GoPro (GPRO) sunk to an all-time low after the action camera maker reported fourth quarter revenue that fell $60M short of expectations and guided toward sales in the new quarter that were even further below the consensus forecast. GoPro, which also guided to losses in the first quarter and named a new CFO, fell as low as $9.01 earlier in the session before cutting its losses to be down about 8% near noon... Sumner Redstone stepped down as Executive Chairman of both CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIA, VIAB), being replaced by the CEOs of the companies in both cases. CBS shares were up 1% after Leslie Moonves was named the next Chair of its board, while Class A shares of Viacom were up about 1.5% after Philippe Dauman was selected to succeed Redstone... ConocoPhillips (COP) fell nearly 7% after the oil and gas explorer reported a worse than expected quarterly loss and slashed its dividend to 25c from 74c per share. CEO Ryan Lance said the decision to reduce the dividend was a "difficult one," but that the company believes it is prudent to plan for lower commodity prices for a longer period of time. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hersha Hospitality (HT), which rallied 14% after it announced that it signed agreements with Cindat to form a joint venture for seven of the company's hotels in Manhattan for $571.4M. Also higher was VirnetX (VHC), which gained 53% after it was awarded $625.6M in a verdict against Apple (AAPL) for infringing four VirnetX patents. In addition, GrubHub (GRUB) and ProtoLabs (PRLB) were up 15% and 12%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Among the noteworthy losers were Ralph Lauren (RL), Kohl's (KSS), and AstraZeneca (AZN), which were down 17%, 19%, and 7%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 70.02, or 0.43%, to 16,406.68, the Nasdaq was up 6.50, or 0.14%, to 4,510.74, and the S&P 500 was up 3.90, or 0.2%, to 1,916.43.
