06:56 EDTEBAYeBay to see limited near-term impact from Apple service, says Cantor
Cantor believes that Apple's (AAPL) new mobile payment service will have a limited impact on eBay's (EBAY) PayPal in the near to medium term. Among the reasons cited by the firm for its view are Apple's limited market share and its assertion that Street estimates for eBay do not include any contribution from PayPal POS revenue. The firm keeps a $63 price target and Buy rating on eBay.

13:03 EDTEBAYOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, with the Nasdaq comfortably the leader among the major averages. The market opened relatively quietly as investors digested the bevy of research reports surrounding apple (AAPL) and the companies effected by its new products and services announced yesterday. The averages crossed into negative ground early in trading, made it back to positive territory just before the lunch hour, and now are all in the black. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., wholesale inventories rose 0.1% in July, which was below expectations for an increase of 0.5%. Wholesale sales rose 0.7%, which was above the 0.6% increase that was forecast. COMPANY NEWS: The strength in the Nasdaq was largely attributable to Apple, which rose about 2.5% the day after unveiling two new, larger iPhone 6 models, the Apple Watch and a new payment system, named Apple Pay... Dollar General (DG) "went hostile" in its pursuit of peer Family Dollar (FDO), commencing a tender offer to acquire all of the company's outstanding shares for $80.00 per share in cash. Family Dollar confirmed the unsolicited offer, noting that the terms are the same as those in the previously rejected proposal made by Dollar General on September 2. Family Dollar said its board will review and consider Dollar General’s tender offer, but added that the board has not changed its recommendation in support of the company's merger with Dollar Tree (DLTR). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP), which rose 21% after several analysts said FDA briefing documents for an advisory panel meeting on its Natpara drug were more favorable than expected. Also higher was clothing and accessories retailer Land's End (LE), which gained nearly 17% after the company's second quarter results beat the estimate of the only analyst that covers it. Among the noteworthy losers was eBay (EBAY), which fell for a second straight day after Apple announced its new mobile payment system, Apple Pay, that could come in direct competition with eBay's PayPal service. Shares of PayPal's parent were downgraded to Neutral this morning at Piper Jaffray and fell 3% near noon. Also lower following yesterday's presentation by Apple was partner GT Advanced (GTAT), which was downgraded at Goldman, Piper Jaffray and Dougherty and dropped more than 14% after it was revealed that sapphire will be used in the display cover of Apple Watch but not the iPhone 6. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 16.02, or 0.09%, to 17,029.89, the Nasdaq was up 21.10, or 0.46%, to 4,573.38, and the S&P 500 was up 2.62, or 0.13%, to 1,991.06.
11:59 EDTEBAYeBay downgraded, continues slide after Apple Pay announced
Shares of e-commerce company eBay (EBAY) are falling for a second straight day after Apple (AAPL) announced its new mobile payment system, Apple Pay, at its event yesterday. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Apple unveiled and confirmed its widely anticipated mobile payment system, dubbed Apple Pay, at its event yesterday. The service, which works with both of Apple's latest iPhone 6s and its Apple Watch, could come in direct competition with eBay's PayPal. Apple is collaborating with American Express (AXP), MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V) on the platform, as well as banks including Bank of America (BAC), Capital One Bank (COF), Chase (JPM), Citi (C) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Some retailers that will support Apple Pay include Bloomingdale's, Disney (DIS), Macy’s (M), McDonald’s (MCD), Panera (PNRA), Staples (SPLS), Subway, Walgreens (WAG) and Whole Foods Market (WFM). ANALYST REACTION: Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster downgraded eBay to Neutral from Overweight following the details regarding Apple Pay. He believes that Apple's new payment system is likely to disturb the mobile payments market and is certain that the "unknown competitive threat" of Apple Pay will further burden eBay's multiple throughout the next six months. Munster said that he expected Apple to announce an initiative like this, so news of Apple Pay does not surprise him. He noted, however, that he did not expect Visa, MasterCard and American Express to collaborate with the platform along with partners such as Macy's and McDonald's. Munster anticipates investors in the near term to be more "conservative" in regards to the PayPal multiple. The analyst lowered his price target for eBay to $55 from $63. Pacific Crest analyst Josh Beck feels that Apple Pay could negatively impact sentiment towards eBay's longer-term opportunity. The tech giant is gaining more traction in the e-commerce space than Beck had initially thought, which could ultimately mean an increased rivalry with eBay's PayPal. The analyst keeps a Sector Perform rating on eBay. Bernstein analyst Carlos Kirjner said that eBay's weakness on Apple's latest news is a buying opportunity for investors. He said that the tech giant's new payment platform is targeting offline payments, noting that offline payments are not imbedded in analyst's estimates for eBay's PayPal. He said that it would take at least a few years for Apple Pay to reach a 12% market share of online payments. He does not see this news as an obstacle for PayPal and Kirjner keeps a $62 price target and Outperform rating on eBay. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, eBay fell $1.64, or 3%, to $51.09, while Apple rose $1.64, or 1.7% to $99.63.
10:37 EDTEBAYChannelAdvisor data shows soft August for eBay, says RW Baird
RW Baird analyst Colin Sebastian says ChannelAdvisor same-store-sales data for August confirms eBay (EBAY) had a soft month. Sebastian believes eBay's new Defect Rate may be pressuring sellers. He remains "somewhat cautious" on eBay in the near-term, but keeps an Outperform rating on the name. Sebastian noted that same-store-sakes data for Amazon.com (AMZN) is more positive.
