08:51 EDTEBAYCiti cuts Twitter estimates below consensus, drops target to $30
Citi analyst Mark May says his analysis indicates the consensus estimates for Twitter (TWTR) may be too high as they assume "meaningful increases" in monetization which he believes may prove difficult to realize. May cut his 2015, 2016 and 2017 earnings per share estimates for Twitter to 30c, 34c and 58c, respectively, well below the consensus estimates of 34c, 63c, and $1.03. He also cut his 2016 revenue estimate to 3% below the consensus. It will be difficult for the stock to achieve sustained multiple expansion until user growth accelerates and/or revenue growth stabilizes, May tells investors in a research note. He moved the stock to Citi's "High Risk" designation given Twitter's recent user trends and his belief that his estimates are unlikely to move up in the near-term. He keeps a Neutral rating on the name. May's top picks among U.S. Internet stocks remain Facebook (FB), (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY).

20:08 EDTTGTChinese president visits U.S. amid cybersecurity, copyright worries
As part of his first official U.S. visit, Chinese president Xi Jinping held a meeting with American business leaders on Wednesday to address concerns of copyright infringement and cybersecurity, among numerous topics. In attendance were corporate giants from both nations, including Microsoft (MSFT), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Cisco (CSCO), Alibaba (BABA), Tencent (TCEHY), and Baidu (BIDU), according to media reports. COPYRIGHT CONCERNS: Responding to oft-cited concerns of copyright infringement by Chinese companies, Xi said China will "stand firm to protect" the intellectual property rights of American companies, according to Wall Street Journal coverage of the event. Note that in late 2014, China began establishing specialized courts to deliberate on intellectual property rights cases, and Xi commented Wednesday that "the newly established IPR courts are working smoothly. This means there will be much stronger IPR protection which will serve the interests of foreign businesses as well as Chinese companies." Chinese consumer electronics company Xiaomi is perhaps the most talked-about firm when it comes to the matter, with media outlets frequently criticizing its alleged "copying" of Apple design sensibilities. In mid-July, Xiaomi VP of global operations Hugo Barra told Bloomberg that the company is preparing to enter U.S. markets, though he cautioned that the launch could be "much more" than a year away as it seeks to build up its patent portfolio. CYBERSECURITY TENSIONS: Wednesday's meeting comes in the wake of numerous high-profile "hack attacks," with Sony (SNE), American Airlines (AAL), Anthem (ANTM), United Airlines (UAL), and Target (TGT) all reporting digital security breaches in recent years. Xi has consistently denied the involvement of state-backed hackers, but tensions have nevertheless arisen as cybersecurity firms such as FireEye (FEYE) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) backtrace connections to the country. Cybersecurity intrusions originating from China have recently slowed ahead of Xi's visit, according to Reuters, with Kevin Mandia of security firm Mandiant telling the publication, "In my gut, I feel like the Chinese and the U.S. over the next couple of years are going to figure this out."
