07:46 EDTSPLS, OWW, COF, AMZN, HD, RST, DFS, ODP, OMX, LOWRetail websites shift prices, deals according to shopper information, WSJ says
The idea of an unbiased, impersonal Internet is now giving way to an online world that is increasingly tailored and targeted. Websites are adopting techniques to find information about visitors to their sites, in real time, and then deliver different versions of the Web to different people, reports the Wall Street Journal . Prices change, products get swapped out, wording is modified, and there is little way for the typical website user to spot it when it happens. The Journal identified a number of companies, including Staples (SPLS), Discover Financial Services (DFS), Rosetta Stone (RST) and Home Depot (HD) who have consistently adjusting prices and displaying different product offers based on a range of characteristics that could be discovered about an Internet shopper. While it's legal, shoppers don' like it. Reference Link

12:11 EDTAMZNeBay sinks after trimming fiscal 2014 revenue outlook
Shares of e-commerce company eBay (EBAY) are sinking after the firm missed revenue expectations for the third quarter and lowered its outlook for for fiscal 2014. The mid-point of its fourth quarter earnings per share, as well as its Q4 revenue guidance also fell below analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, eBay reported Q3 EPS of 68c and revenue of $4.35B, compared to consensus of 67c and $4.37B, respectively. For the quarter, Marketplaces segment toatl net revenue increased $129M from last year, Payments segment total net revenue increased $330M and Enterprise segment total net revenue increased $7M. In a filing, eBay said that it had no material operating expenses directly related to a cyberattack, but noted that the cyberattack did adversely affect its Marketplaces revenue in the quarter. The company said it is currently unclear whether any loss of customer trust resulting from the breach could negatively impact its Marketplaces segment's results of operations on an ongoing basis or "require us to increase promotional efforts to regain such trust." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Looking ahead, eBay forecast Q4 EPS of 88c-91c and revenue of $4.85B-$4.95B, versus consensus estimates of 91c and $5.16B, respectively. The company announced that FY14 EPS would come in at the low end of its previous guidance of $2.95-$3.00, compared to consensus of $2.97. eBay also lowered its FY14 revenue outlook to $17.85B-$17.95B from $18B-$18.3B, versus analysts' consensus estimates of $18.15B. eBay cited slower Marketplace growth and FX headwinds for the reduced guidance. eBay said PayPal is on track to process 1B mobile transactions in 2014 and that it expects the PayPal separation to be complete in 2H15. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, research firm RBC Capital downgraded eBay to Sector Perform from Outperform following the Q3 report, citing softness in Marketplaces and lower than expected Payments segment margins. The firm lowered its price target on the shares to $55 from $62. Another firm, Stifel, said eBay shares are approaching compelling levels. However, Stifel noted that it is reluctant to become more positive on the stock without more information about the PayPal spin off, potential cost structure changes after the spin and before the stabilization of current operating trends. Stifel kept a Hold rating on the shares. CLSA downgraded eBay to Underperform from Buy and lowered its price target to $52 from $66. The firm cited ongoing issues with Marketplaces, execution risks post split, diminishing PayPal competitive advantages and potential M&A barriers. PRICE ACTION: In intra day trading, eBay fell $3.13, or about 6.3%, to $47.10 on heavy trading volume. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost approximately 12% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other ecommerce companies include Amazon.com (AMZN), down 1.8%, and Mercadolibre (MELI), down 0.9%.
