12:59 EDTPCLN, OPEN, GRUB, YELP, AWAYAnalyst sees Priceline expanding in more areas after OpenTable buy
After Priceline Group (PCLN) agreed to buy OpenTable (OPEN), which operates an online restaurant reservation network, research firm Piper Jaffray predicted that Priceline would probably expand into additional areas. WHAT'S NEW: Priceline can move into additional categories, including events, ride sharing, and attractions, Piper analyst Michael Olson wrote. The company's decision to buy OpenTable shows that it is poised to move into new business areas, Olson contended. As for the OpenTable deal, the analyst thinks that there are obvious synergies between online travel and online restaurant reservations, and that the two companies will be able to promote their respective offerings to each other's customers. Additionally, Priceline's expertise in overseas operations will enable OpenTable to expand to perform more effectively in that area, the analyst contended. He kept an Overweight rating and $1,485 price target on Priceline. OTHERS TO WATCH: Yelp (YELP) allows its users to review local businesses, including restaurants, and its platform provides local businesses with a range of services, including its newly launched reservation system. GrubHub (GRUB) is an online and mobile platform for restaurant pick-up and delivery orders that similarly connects local restaurants with diners. Shares of HomeAway (AWAY), which operates an online marketplace for the vacation rental industry, are also higher, with the move potentially related to investor belief that it could be targeted for an acquisition by one of the larger players in the space. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Priceline fell 2.4% to $1,196, while OpenTable soared 47% to $103.50.

10:56 EDTYELPFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.
