06:05 EDTAAPL, GOOGBarclays extends cheque imaging to Android users
Barclays announced the extension of its pioneering mobile cheque imaging service to nearly a million more customers, including 500,000 customers with android phones. In another UK first, the service is also now being made available to iPad users. Since the launch of cheque imaging a year ago, nearly three quarters of a million pounds have been deposited by the 30,000 Barclays customers signed up to the mobile cheque imaging tool on their iPhones. The latest roll-out will see this number rise yet higher as more customers are able to benefit from the speed and ease of this time-saving technology. Mobile cheque imaging is available through the Barclays Mobile Banking app and allows customers to pay in a Barclays cheque of up to £500 within minutes of receiving it. Customers simply need to take a photo of the cheque then complete a few quick steps before the funds are immediately available in their current account. Reference Link

As part of the revenue-sharing move, Facebook will also be testing a "Suggested Videos" feature, a video-only news feed that uses an algorithm to personalize its content for each user. Reference Link

09:46 EDTGOOGCriteo rises after said to add Alibaba, Target as customers
Shares of digital marketing solutions provider Criteo (CRTO) are rising in early trading after research firm Pacific Crest raised its price target on the stock. The firm also notes that it appears Criteo has recently added Alibaba (BABA) and Target (TGT) as customers. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors this morning, Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson said that the firm's checks indicate that Criteo now has cookies on 49% of the top 100 retail and travel websites in the U.S. Wilson noted that Google (GOOG) has 76% of the top 100, but suggested also that its heavy overlap with Criteo reinforces the view that the two companies' cookies serve different purposes. Wilson said Target was a notable Criteo win in the U.S. during Q2, while also saying the firm discovered that some Alibaba sites outside of China now have a Criteo cookie for the first time. Wilson raised his 2016 estimates for Criteo citing the continued strong checks and increased the firm's price target on the stock to $65 from $55. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Criteo grained $2.30, or 4.8%, to $49.97.

05:58 EDTAAPLSecond Circuit affirms Apple's liability for e-book price-fixing conspiracy
Assistant Attorney General Bill Baer of the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division released the following statement yesterday after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruling in United States v. Apple Inc.: “We are gratified by the court’s decision. The decision confirms that it is unlawful for a company to knowingly participate in a price-fixing conspiracy, whatever its specific role in the conspiracy or reason for joining it. Because Apple and the defendant publishers sought to eliminate price competition in the sale of e-books, consumers were forced to pay higher prices for many e-book titles. I am proud of the outstanding work done by the trial team who initially established Apple’s liability and by the lawyers who defended the district court’s decision in this appeal. The Antitrust Division will continue to vigorously protect competition and enforce the antitrust laws in this important business, and in other industries that affect the everyday lives of consumers.”

10:38 EDTGOOG, AAPLWells Fargo upbeat on core eBay, Bernstein bullish on PayPal
Wells Fargo issued an upbeat note on the outlook for eBay's (EBAY) core business, while another research firm, Bernstein, was bullish on the company's soon to be spun off PayPal (PYPL) unit. eBay has said that it will spin off its PayPal online payments unit through a distribution to eBay shareholders on July 17. CORE EBAY: The shares of core eBay are likely to offer a "unique value opportunity" following the spin-off, as many growth investors will probably sell their shares in eBay creating "an interesting entry point." Wells Fargo stated. eBay's business model is "arguably better" than that of most retailers, as it has no inventory risk, better margins, and more efficient capital deployments than most other companies in the sector, Wells believes. Numerous initiatives that the company is undertaking, including structured data and a simplified listing process, could enable eBay to beat expectations going forward, Wells contended. Additionally, there is little risk to fiscal 2016 estimates for eBay, since its guidance does not factor in any improvement in its business, the firm believes. Noting that "when issued" shares of eBay and PayPal are slated to start trading on July 9, Wells says that eBay's shares would provide "exceptional value" if they trade anywhere near the current $20 per share implied value of core eBay. At $25, the shares would still provide "excellent value," the firm added. PAYPAL: The growth of Internet payments is in its infancy and has "vast untapped potential," according to Bernstein analyst Carlos Kirjner. PayPal's total payments volume should have a compound annual growth rate of over 20% in the next three years, helping its revenue to jump by a CAGR of at least 17% over the period, the analyst stated. Since PayPal's position in mobile is strong, competing services from Apple (AAPL) and Google (GOOG) will, at most, create a small headwind to PayPal's growth over the next three years, Kirjner contended. Moreover, PayPal has room to cut its costs, enabling its margins to expand and its earnings to grow faster than its revenue over the longer term, the analyst stated. He values PayPal at $43 per eBay share. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, eBay added 0.7% to $59.77.
