12:28 EDTTAdtran spikes after Cowen analyst sees revenue opportunity in AT&T pact
Shares of communications equipment maker Adtran (ADTN) are advancing after research firm Cowen raised his rating and price target on shares following recent industry checks. WHAT'S NEW: Cowen analyst Paul Silverstein raised his rating on Adtran shares to Market Perform from Underperform following industry checks regarding Adtran's new G.Fast broadband access project win at AT&T (T). Recent industry checks confirm that Adtran was selected by AT&T for its G.Fast broadband access build-out project, the analyst said, and noted that checks also show that Adtran is the only vendor selected by AT&T for the Outside Network Unit and Distribution Point Unit functions of the project. The analyst, who raised his price target on Adtran shares to $16 from $14, sees the pact with AT&T as a significant revenue opportunity for Adtran over the next few years. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Adtran reported fourth quarter results on January 20, with earnings per share coming in at 12c on revenue of $139M, beating analysts' projections of 3c and $137.75M, respectively. On its quarterly conference call, the company forecast revenue for the first quarter to be flat to slightly up. According to Cowen's research note today, Adtran won't realize revenue gains from its broadband pact with AT&T until the beginning of calendar year 2017. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Adtran are up over 4.5% to $18.98 in midday trading. OTHERS TO WATCH: Shares of Calix (CALX), which also sells broadband communications access systems and software for fiber- and copper-based networks, are up 1.35% in midday trading.

06:27 EDTVZPiper's Munster says Yahoo growth to remain challenged for years
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says Yahoo's (YHOO) core business "seems even more challenged than before" following the company's Q4 results. Yahoo's fundamental growth challenges "will remain for multiple years," Munster tells investors in a post-earnings research note where he cut his price target for the shares to $31 from $39. He keeps an Overweight rating on Yahoo, however, pointing out that the shares still trade below a fully taxed value for both its Alibaba (BABA) and Yahoo Japan (YAHOY) stakes. The current share price seems to imply zero value for the core business, which is unfair given Verizon's (VZ) $4.4B acquisition of AOL last year, Munster contends. He believes Alibaba still provides upside to the story. Yahoo is trading down 51c to $28.55 in pre-market trading following its Q4 results.

06:26 EDTVZStifel cuts Twitter to Sell after noting Yahoo has significantly more users
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Sell from Hold after "materially lowering" his forward estimates for the company. Twitter is a product that has "never fully developed into a sustainable public company," Devitt tells investors in a research note. To those that believe the microblog's 320M active user base is significant, the analyst points out that Yahoo (YHOO) still reports 1B monthly active users across its network and AOL's final public disclosure last year prior to its acquisition by Verizon (VZ) still showed nearly 200M unique visitors. Twitter will be challenged to reach its near- and long-term financial expectations, the analyst contends. Devitt points out that Facebook (FB) continues to generate over two times as much advertising revenue per monthly active user in the U.S. as Twitter. He has a $14 price target for the shares. Twitter closed yesterday up $1.10 to $17.90 after The Information reported that Silver Lake and investor Marc Andreessen have "considered some sort of deal" for the microblog operator.
