06:09 EDTSCORcomScore selloff likely an overreaction, said Brean Capital
Brean Capital analyst Todd Mitchell yesterday said the recent selloff in shares of comScore is likely an overreaction. The stock has retreated after the Wall Street Journal pointed out that the company was recognizing non-monetary revenue from barter transactions. comScore recognition of these deals is in line with generally accepted accounting practices, and the impact on Q2 results highlighted in the Journal's story was much greater than it will be on full-year 2015 results, Mitchell told investors in a research note. He expects management to address the barter concerns when presenting at the Brean Capital Technology Conference on Wednesday September 9. The analyst reiterated a Buy rating on comScore with a $67 price target.

13:09 EDTSCORcomScore continues selloff after WSJ questioned revenue growth
Shares of comScore are down for a second straight day after the Wall Street Journal's Miriam Gottfried on Monday questioned the company's revenue growth. In a story published Monday afternoon in the Journal's Heard on the Street column, Gottfried pointed out that "nonmonetary" revenue made up most of comScore's revenue growth in its latest quarter. Excluding the revenue from barter agreements where actual cash did not change hands, or $10.8M, the Internet analytics company's revenue would have grown just 3% versus the reported 14% in the quarter, Gottfried wrote. "Investors cheering comScore's top-line growth should take closer note of where it is coming from," she cautioned. In addition, Herb Greenberg's Pacific Square Research issued a cautionary piece to its clients yesterday regarding comScore's barter transitions, the journalist posted today on Twitter. Shares of comScore are down 9%, or $4.22, to $43.93 in afternoon trading. They have lost 22% over the past five trading days. Reference Link
