05:53 EDTEBAYGoogle unlikely to buy stake in eBay, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says press reports that Google (GOOG) is in talks to purchase a stake in eBay (EBAY) are "largely unsubstantiated" and that the tech giant is unlikely to purchase part of the online marketplace. Munster notes that Google has only a limited history in taking stakes in public companies. He believes Google's general philosophy emphasizes full ownership in key assets as opposed to taking stakes in companies. Munster thinks a more attractive deal could be Google making a full acquisition of eBay's PayPal unit. He notes, however, that eBay has resisted activist investors who have proposed spinning off PayPal. Munster keeps a Neutral rating on eBay shares with a $55 price target. Shares of eBay rallied $1.51 to $52.19 on Friday amid speculation that Google was in talks to take a stake in the company.

Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The day’s economic data, including retail sales figures, a report on import prices, and business inventories data, were generally in line with expectations. The economic bright spot was the University of Michigan consumer confidence report which came in higher than expected. The market is on the verge of ending the week lower, which would be its first weekly loss in the last seven. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., sales at retailers climbed 0.6% in August, matching expectations but also representing the fastest pace in four months. Retail sales growth for July was also revised upward to 0.3% from a prior estimate of having been flat. Import prices dropped 0.9% in August, while export prices slipped 0.5%. The University of Michigan preliminary consumer sentiment reading for for September rose to 84.6, beating expectations for it to be up more modestly to 83.3. Business inventories grew 0.4% in July, as expected. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of eBay (EBAY) were up more than 2% near noon after rumors circulated that Google (GOOG) may look to take a stake in the company. However, an eBay spokesperson denied the speculation, telling Reuters that the company has held "no conversations" with Google about acquiring a stake. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was digital marketing services company Conversant (CNVR), which soared 30% after Alliance Data Systems (ADS) agreed to acquire it for about $2.3B in cash and stock. Following last night's announcement of the deal, some Conversant peers rose as well, as Criteo (CRTO) gained almost 5% and TubeMogul (TUBE) rose 1%, while Alliance Data gained over 2%. Among the noteworthy losers was Amarin (AMRN), which dropped 22% after an office within the FDA denied the company's appeal of FDA's rescission of the ANCHOR clinical trial Special Protocol Assessment agreement. Also lower were shares of Ruckus Wireless (RKUS), which fell 5% after one analyst downgraded the shares and another initiated coverage of the stock with an Underweight rating. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 66.43, or 0.39%, to 16,982.57, the Nasdaq was down 19.83, or 0.43%, to 4,571.97, and the S&P 500 was down 10.28, or 0.51%, to 1,987.17.

The shares spiked higher earlier on unconfirmed rumors that Google (GOOG) might make an investment in the company. Shares have declined sharply this week on Apple's entry into mobile payments, and these rumors may be attempts to catch short-sellers into the weekend. Friday rumors of this type are not exceptional. At the current price of $52.52, next resistance is at $53.07, the session high. Support is at $51.71.

12:16 EDTLULUOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and have remained there throughout the morning. Initial jobless claims, reported prior to the open, did little to stoke buying after coming in higher than expected. The market has drifted off its lows of the session but the averages once again remain range bound. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 11K to 315K in the week ended September 6, versus expectations for them to tick down slightly to 300K. The Federal budget for August is scheduled to be reported at 2:00 pm ET, with a deficit of $130.0B forecast. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of yoga-inspired apparel maker lululemon (LULU) rose over 15% after the company reported better than expected second quarter results and increased its fiscal year guidance. Meanwhile, shares of another well-known retailer, RadioShack (RSH), advanced 16% after its own quarterly report, despite acknowledging it will need additional capital to complete its turnaround and that it may need to pursue a bankruptcy filing. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was JDSU (JDSU), which advanced 11% after announcing last night that it plans to separate into two publicly traded companies, namely an optical components and commercial lasers one and another focused on network and service enablement. This morning the stock was upgraded at RBC Capital to Outperform, as the firm believes that the split should enable the entities to streamline their costs and that the shares could reach a $40 value over the long-term. Also higher was Taminco (TAM), which rose nearly 11% and traded above the $26.00 per share price it agreed to in striking a deal to be acquired by Eastman Chemical (EMN). Of note, the deal includes a "go shop" provision under which Taminco may solicit alternative acquisition proposals for a thirty day period. Following the announcement, Eastman shares rose a bit over 1%. Among the noteworthy losers was E2open (EOPN), which plunged 30% and was downgraded at Pacific Crest and Northland after the company pre-announced Q2 results and issued weaker than expected 2015 revenue guidance. Also lower were shares of China's 21Vianet (VNET), which fell 17% after the company hosted a conference call to discuss the recent allegations made by a short seller. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 40.49, or 0.24%, to 17,028.22, the Nasdaq was down 12.73, or 0.28%, to 4,573.80, and the S&P 500 was down 3.66, or 0.18%, to 1,992.03.

10:47 EDTLULULululemon raises FY14 outlook as Q2 earnings beat analysts' estimates
Shares of Lululemon (LULU), a designer and retailer of yoga-inspired apparel operating primarily in North America and Australia, are sharply higher this morning after the company reported better than expected second quarter results and increased its fiscal year guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Lululemon reported Q2 earnings per share of 33c on revenue of $390.7M, beating analysts' consensus estimates of 29c and $367.8M, respectively. Total comparable sales, which includes comparable store sales and direct to consumer, were flat for the quarter on a constant dollar basis. Same-store-sales for the period fell 5% on a constant dollar basis and direct to consumer revenue increased 30% on a constant dollar basis, the company said. Chief Executive Officer Laurent Potdevin said the company is making "meaningful progress on building a scalable foundation for our next phase of global growth." Looking ahead, lululemon sees third quarter EPS to be in the range of 36c-38c on revenue of $420M-$425M, in line with analysts' estimates of 38c and $421.85M, respectively. The retailer anticipates total SSS for the quarter to be up in the low single digits on a constant-dollar basis. WHAT'S NOTABLE: After previously cutting its fiscal year 2014 EPS guidance to $1.71-$1.75 from $1.80-$1.90, lululemon this morning raised its normalized EPS view to $1.72-$1.77. The company also raised the bottom end of its revenue guidance to $1.78B-$1.8B from $1.77B-$1.8B; the company's revenue view had previously been lowered to $1.77B-$1.8B from $1.77B-$1.82B. For the fiscal year, analysts are expecting EPS of $1.74 and revenue of $1.78B. For FY14, the company sees total comparable SSS to be up in the low single digits on a constant-dollar basis. During Q2, lululemon founder Chip Wilson and Advent International entered into an agreement under which Wilson would sell half his stake to private equity firm Advent for $845M and Advent would receive two board seats and review the company's governance. On its Q2 earnings conference call, lululemon said that it is "happy" to have Advent back as a shareholder and is "looking forward" to having Advent's guidance going forward. The retailer forecast Q3 and FY14 gross margin of approximately 51% and said it is on track to open a store in Singapore in the fourth quarter. PRICE ACTION: During morning trading, lululemon rose $6.29 or 16.78%, to $44.69.

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.
