10:30 EDTTWTR, FBTwitter climbs after analyst puts $75 target on shares
Shares of Twitter (TWTR) are jumping after research firm Stifel Nicolaus initiated coverage of the stock with a Buy rating. WHAT'S NEW: Twitter's ad revenue will grow 600% over the next four years, Stifel analyst Jordan Rohan predicted in a note to investors earlier today. Noting that the website currently has 232 million users versus Facebook's (FB) 1.2 billion users, Rohan believes that the number of users on Twitter will grow for years. Additionally, over time, Twitter's average revenue per user will be higher than that of Facebook, the analyst added. Compared with Facebook, Twitter has much fewer available shares, which should enable Twitter's valuation to remain higher than its social media rival, the analyst stated. He has a $75 price target on Twitter. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Twitter is nearing a deal with startup Stripe that would help enable Twitter to accept credit card payments from users, Re/code reported. Twitter will allow users to buy products directly through the social network, soon, the tech site added. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Twitter rallied $3.30, or 5.4%, to $63.90.

08:28 EDTTWTRTwitter may see 'paltry' MAU growth in Q2, Business Insider says
Twitter's monthly active users would have declined during Q2 if not for a boost from the World Cup, two sources told Business Insider, with one of those sources claiming Twitter will have 260M MAUs for the quarter, up only 2% from the 255M MAUs it reported in Q1. "It is not possible to say definitively from the data provided by Business Insider's two sources that Twitter's MAUs are in trouble," the report cautioned, noting that the data relied on comes from third-party developers and that the MAUs communicated were taken during non-standard time periods that don't sync with Twitter's calendar quarters.

10:56 EDTTWTR, FBFed 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%.
10:33 EDTFB, TWTRFacebook, Twitter slip following cautious valuation comments from Fed
Shares of a number of companies in the social media and biotech industries moved lower following the circulation of cautious comments about their stock valuations that were included in the Federal Reserve's latest Monetary Policy Report. WHAT'S NEW: In the report, presented by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and signed on behalf of the governors by Chair Janet Yellen, the central bank wrote that some broad equity price indexes have increased to all-time highs in nominal terms since the end of 2013, but that valuation measures for the overall market in early July were "generally at levels not far above their historical averages." However, the Fed's report also cautioned that valuation metrics in some sectors do 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. As support for its assessment, the Fed noted that ratios of prices to forward earnings for "smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms" remain "high relative to historical norms." PRICE ACTION: Following the circulation of the comments in the Fed report, shares of Facebook (FB) are down 88c, or 1.3%, to $67.02, Twitter (TWTR) is down 24c, or 0.6%, to $38.07 and LinkedIn (LNKD), is down 21c, or 0.1%, to $159.57. Shares of some biotechnology companies including Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) also ticked lower following the circulation of the comments from the Fed's report.

08:18 EDTTWTRTwitter cracks down on providers of user stats, BI says
After Twitter's stock declined early this year following data that suggested growth in its monthly active users was slowing or flat and that engagement measures were declining, the social network operator has taken the unusual step of shutting off its data flow to certain companies that have published their own stats on Twitter's user statistics, according Business Insider, citing two sources.
