13:16 EDTGOOG, AMZNAngie's List retreats after Amazon reportedly launches local services site
Shares of Angie's List (ANGI) are sinking after The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that Amazon.com (AMZN) had launched a website that will connect consumers to local service providers. Angie's List connects users to local contractors and publishes consumers' reviews of contractors. WHAT'S NEW: Amazon.com launched its website featuring information about local contractors in New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, The Journal reported, citing an unnamed source who was briefed on the company's plan. Called Amazon Local Services, the website is part of the e-commerce giant's attempt to compete with traditional stores, The Journal said. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Reuters reported last June that Amazon planned to launch a local services website. Last month, research firm Wunderlich said that Angie's List could be a logical takeover target for Amazon or eBay (EBAY). Wunderlich issued its note after The Financial Times reported that Angie's List had hired bankers to help it explore strategic options, including a possible sale of the company. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian wrote that Amazon's service should be appealing to users searching for local services or shopping for products that have to be serviced. Moreover, service providers should also find value in Amazon's website, Sebastian stated. Service providers will only have to pay Amazon a share of the revenue they receive from customers they obtain from the website, the analyst wrote. Also, Amazon's popularity will enable it to bring meaningful amounts of business to the service providers, Sebastian wrote. He kept a $340 price target and Outperform rating on Amazon shares. Sebastian also noted that the market is increasingly competitive, with Groupon (GRPN) and Yelp (YELP) among the other public companies in the space, and he said he expects Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) to build more local services over time. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Angie's List fell 4% to $6 and Amazon slid 1% to $332.50.
12:22 EDTAMZNAmazon uniquely positioned in home services market, says RW Baird
After the Wall Street Journal this morning highlighted the recent roll-out of Amazon (AMZN) Local Services in select U.S. cities, RW Baird analyst Colin Sebastian says the tech giant is "uniquely positioned" in the $400B home services market given its position in e-commerce and ability to geo-target traffic to local service professionals. Sebastian notes the market is increasingly competitive, with Angie's List (ANGI), Groupon (GRPN) and Yelp (YELP) among the public companies in the space. He also expects Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) to build more local services over time. Sebastian keeps an Outperform rating on Amazon, point out Baird's initial e-commerce checks suggest a solid start to holiday shopping.

11:10 EDTAMZN, GOOGWorldwide tablet growth expected to slow to 7.2% in 2014, IDC says
The worldwide tablet market is expected to see a massive deceleration in 2014 with year-over-year growth slowing to 7.2%, down from 52.5% in 2013, according to a new forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC). At the core of this slowdown is the expectation that 2014 will represent the first full year of decline in Apple iPad shipments. Both the iPad and the overall market slowdown do not come as a surprise as device lifecycles for tablets have continued to lengthen, increasingly resembling those of PCs more than smartphones. "The tablet market continues to be impacted by a few major trends happening in relevant markets," said Ryan Reith, Program Director with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers. "In the early stages of the tablet market, device lifecycles were expected to resemble those of smartphones, with replacement occurring every 2-3 years. What has played out instead is that many tablet owners are holding onto their devices for more than 3 years and in some instances more than 4 years. We believe the two major drivers for longer than expected tablet lifecycles are legacy software support for older products, especially within iOS, and the increased use of smartphones for a variety of computing tasks." Publicly traded companies in the space include Samsung (SSNLF), Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Barnes & Noble (BKS). Reference Link
10:25 EDTNFLXNetflix drops after downbeat notes from Stifel, Citi
Shares of Netflix (NFLX) are sinking after two research firms issued cautious notes on the company. WHAT'S NEW: Netflix was downgraded to Hold from Buy by Scott Devitt, an analyst at Stifel. The reaction to Netflix's Q3 results indicate that investors are still focused on the company's domestic subscriber growth, the analyst stated. Netflix's penetration in the U.S. will continue to increase, but at a slower pace than in previous years, Devitt predicted. Moreover, the company's U.S. business may have started to slow before its international growth can compensate, the analyst warned. As a result, Netflix's subscriber growth may not beat investors' expectations for a period of time, Devitt stated. However, Netflix's longer term outlook remains compelling and the firm said it would become more constructive on shares in the low-$300 range. Meanwhile, Citigroup analyst Mark May wrote that Google data suggests that Netflix's trends have not improved in Q4 compared with Q3. Moreover, it is still unclear if Netflix's domestic subscriber growth has entered a downward trend, May believes. Also unclear is whether the company's results in its new foreign markets have been disappointing and whether it still has pricing power, May wrote. The analyst believes that the stock can rise significantly if the answers to these questions are resolved in Netflix's favor. However, he added that the uncertainties may not be resolved during the current quarter. May kept a Neutral rating on the stock with a $364 price target. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix dropped 3% to $345.52.

06:28 EDTGOOGBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
The Billboard 200 albums chart will premiere its biggest upgrade in more than 23 years, transforming from a pure sales-based ranking to one measuring multi-metric consumption. Beginning with the top 10 revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on Billboard.com, the chart, which currently tracks the top 200 albums of the week by sales alone, will be the first to include on-demand streaming and digital track sales -- as measured by Nielsen Entertainment (NLSN) -- by way of a new algorithm. It is the most substantial methodology update since May 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data -- SoundScan -- to measure album sales. The updated Billboard 200 will utilize accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, equating 10 digital track sales from an album to one equivalent album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album to one equivalent album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music (AAPL), Google Play (GOOG) and Xbox Music (MSFT). Reference Link

10:10 EDTDISDreamWorks sinks, Hasbro rebounds after takeover talks reportedly end
Shares of movie maker DreamWorks (DWA) are tumbling after multiple media outlets reported that talks about a takeover of the company by Hasbro (HAS) had ended. WHAT'S NEW: Talks about an acquisition of DreamWorks by Hasbro have ended, multiple news outlets including The Wall Street Journal and Deadline reported over the weekend. However, Deadline, citing unnamed sources, reported that there's "still a slight chance" that the talks will resume. Hasbro's CEO and board visited DreamWorks' campus recently and a potential name for the combined entity - DreamWorks-Hasbro - was discussed, Deadline stated. Hasbro halted the talks because it became concerned about the negative reaction of its stock to reports about the discussions, Deadline added. Barron's weighed in on the issue over the weekend, writing that the deal "doesn't make sense economically." Partnering with DreamWorks would be logical for Habro, but buying DreamWorks would not be a good move for the toy maker, Barron's stated. DreamWorks' recent inability to create big hits or generate free cash makes it a poor takeover target for Hasbro, Barron's indicated. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors on Thursday, Sterne Agee analyst Vasily Karasyov wrote that there is "no industrial logic" whatsoever to a combination of DreamWorks and Hasbro. Karasyov said there was no good reason for Hasbro to buy DreamWorks for $35 per share, the price that the movie maker was seeking, according to some reports. Karasyov predicted that the deal would not occur and kept a $17 price target and Underperform rating on the shares. Additionally, Piper Jaffray said the possible acquisition of DreamWorks Animation by Hasbro could have impacted the latter company's partnership with Disney (DIS). Piper thought buying a competing animation company could alter Disney's view of Hasbro as a partner. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, DreamWorks fell 15% to $22.08, while Hasbro gained 4.3% to $56.33.

News Corp announced that it has successfully completed its acquisition of Move, Inc. Move is a provider of online real estate services and operates a network of sites, including realtor.com, the official website for the National Association of Realtors. The previously announced tender offer by a subsidiary of News Corp for all of the outstanding shares of Move common stock at a price of $21.00 per share expired as scheduled at the end of the day, 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on November 13, 2014. Excluding shares tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery, a total of approximately 34,299,586 shares were validly tendered into and not withdrawn from the tender offer, representing, together with the shares owned by News Corp and its subsidiaries, approximately 83.1% of Move’s outstanding shares. As a result, News Corp, through its subsidiary, has accepted for payment and will promptly pay for all such validly tendered shares pursuant to the terms of the tender offer. Following its acceptance of the tendered shares, News Corp completed the acquisition by causing the merger of its subsidiary with and into Move without a vote of Move’s stockholders, pursuant to Section 251(h) of the Delaware General Corporation Law. Upon completion of the merger, Move became an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of News Corp. As a result of the merger and in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement, all eligible Move shares not tendered into the tender offer were cancelled and converted into the right to receive $21.00 per share in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, the same price per share offered in the tender offer. As a result of the acquisition, Move shares ceased to be traded on the NASDAQ Stock Market. REA Group Limited, in which News Corp owns a 61.6% interest, has entered into a definitive agreement with News Corp to acquire a 20% stake in Move. The transaction is expected to be completed on November 17.
