08:56 EDTLNCLincoln National to sell LFM to Entercom Comm for $105M plus working capital
Entercom Communications Corp. (ETM) announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Lincoln Financial Media, or LFM, from Lincoln Financial Group (LNC) for $105M plus working capital. The transaction is subject to FCC and other customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions. The company expects that the deal will close in 2Q15. The agreement includes fifteen radio stations in the Atlanta, Denver, Miami and San Diego markets, and it will expand Entercom’s station portfolio to more than 130 stations in 26 markets. The $105M purchase price will be paid in the form of $77.5M in cash and $27.5M in new perpetual cumulative convertible preferred stock that will be issued to Lincoln. Entercom expects to finance the cash portion of the purchase price through a combination of its existing $50M revolver, cash on hand, and through other financing sources, if necessary. Entercom anticipates that it will begin operating the LFM stations under a time brokerage agreement which is expected to commence in late January following the usual Justice Department regulatory review. In order to comply with the FCC’s station ownership limitations, the Company plans to divest one FM station in the Denver market.

10:20 EDTGOOGYahoo rises, Google falls after BofA changes ratings on both
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are rising and Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) stock is falling after Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Yahoo and downgraded Google. WHAT'S NEW: Bank of America analyst Justin Post upgraded his rating on Yahoo to Buy from Neutral. Post said he had previously not expected to obtain information about Yahoo's strategy for avoiding taxes on the sale of its stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) at least until well into 2015. However, Yahoo's CFO recently stated that the company continued to be optimistic that it would be able to cut its tax bill and added that the company would divulge its plans for doing so during its next earnings conference call. Yahoo's next earnings conference call is expected to take place by the end of next month, Post noted. He set a $62 price target on Yahoo shares. Meanwhile, Post downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The analyst thinks the company is facing several headwinds, including the maturity of its search business, a lack of products that can provide catalysts, and margin pressures as it invests in competitive businesses. As a result of these headwinds, Google's results are likely to be below expectations, Post believes. Meanwhile, the company is also facing increased regulatory risk, particularly in the EU, and increased competition from Facebook (FB) and other social networks. He trimmed his price target on Google to $580 from $600. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yahoo climbed 1% to $50.94, while Google class A shares declined 1.5% to $534.33.

07:38 EDTGOOGFollow-up: Google downgraded at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The firm lowered estimates slightly below the Street due to lack of product catalysts, search maturity, and margin pressure from investments. BofA/Merrill is also cautious on online advertising growth given increased regulatory risk in the EU, potential Facebook (FB) competition, share loss from social growth, and a strong Apple (AAPL) product cycle. Price target lowered to $580 from $600.
