10:42 EDTGOOGAnalyst increases Google price target by $265, upgrades to buy
Research firm Atlantic Equities upgraded Google (GOOG, GOOGL) to Overweight from Market Weight, saying that it is more upbeat on the company's search business, while YouTube is becoming a major growth driver. Additionally, the search giant's margins look poised to improve, the firm stated. Overweight is Atlantic's equivalent of a buy rating. WHAT'S NEW: Google's second quarter results showed that its search business is weathering the transition to mobile better than expected, Atlantic Equities analyst James Cordwell stated in a note to investors today. Meanwhile, YouTube's revenue, despite growing very quickly, can rise even further since it still accounts for just roughly 5% of global TV viewing outside of China, according to Cordwell. Additionally, the movement of ad dollars from conventional TV to online TV looks set to accelerate, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Google is undertaking initiatives that should cause the amount of money it obtains from each mobile click to rise, the analyst believes. Commenting on the outlook for Google's margins, Cordwell believes that they should be boosted by the cost cuts being undertaken by the company's new CFO. The analyst raised his price target on the company's Class A shares to $825 from $560. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Google's common stock rose $2.60 to $658.73 and its Class A shares rose $2.70 to $691.43.

06:25 EDTGOOGGoogle upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities
Atlantic Equities analyst James Cordwell upgraded Google (GOOG, GOOGL) to Overweight and raised his price target for shares to $825 from $560. The search giant closed yesterday down $5.38 to $688.73. Google's YouTube unit "continues to grow very rapidly," while the revenue growth of Google Websites suggests the company is navigating the mobile transition on search better than expected, Cordwell tells investors in a research note. Further, a greater focus on costs by the new CFO is driving improved profitability, a trend that should continue, the analyst argues. Cordwell expects continued outperformance of Google shares.
