13:27 EDTAOLEarnings Preview: Yahoo expected to unveil turnaround plan with Q3 results
Yahoo (YHOO) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Tuesday, October 21 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Yahoo is a digital media company that provides properties and services such as Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! News. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 30c on revenue of $1.04B. The consensus range is 18c-38c for EPS, and $1.02B-$1.06B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Yahoo reported Q2 EPS 37c against estimates of 38c on revenue ex-tac of $1.04B against estimates of $1.08B. It reported Q2 price-per-ad was down 24%, Q2 Display revenue down 7% and Search revenue up 6%. The company gave Q3 revenue ex-tac guidance of $1.02B-$1.06B. After releasing its Q2 results, CEO Marissa Mayer said the company was "not satisfied" with the results, with display remaining an area of investment and transition. NEWS: In the past quarter, Alibaba (BABA) opened to the larges IPO in U.S. history. The Wall Street Journal reported that Yahoo's core business was cut in half to $6.8B after Alibaba's first day of trading. Yahoo made $5.1B in cash from the sale of shares in Alibaba's IPO and its remaining stake is valued at about $23.4B.In late September, activist investor Starboard Value urged Yahoo to explore a strategic combination with AOL (AOL), believing a merger could create synergies of up to $1B. CEO Marissa Mayer is expected to unveil her turnaround plan at the earnings call today that could include cost-cutting efforts and its M&A strategy, according to the Wall Street Journal. Yahoo also confirmed that a security breach in Q3 compromised servers, but the hack did not disclose consumer data. The company acquired several companies in past few months, including Flurry, Zofari, ClarityRay, Luminate, and Bookdpad. A WSJ reports also said the company is in talks to invest in Snapchat. STREET RESEARCH: Following the Alibaba IPO, Yahoo was downgraded at Bernstein, BofA/Merrill and RBC Capital because it was unclear whether Yahoo's stock can advance meaningfully and the company was no longer the best way to gain Alibaba exposure. RBC Capital said the risk/reward is less attractive, and it does not see a turnaround in Yahoo's core fundamentals. BGC Financial, however, upgraded the company and said the company's remaining assets should get monetized in a more tax efficient manner. PRICE ACTION: Yahoo shares have risen $4.29, or more than 12%, since the first day of trading following the company's Q2 report. In Tuesday midday trading ahead of Q3 report, Yahoo shares are trading up nearly 2%.

The majority of smartphone owners now have access to an theft-deterrent solution. Through the work of the Secure Our Smartphones Initiative in concert with the smartphone industry, we are well on our way to safeguarding our loved ones from opportunistic thieves. But in order for these theft deterrents to effectively end the epidemic, they must be enabled by default so violent criminals lack the incentive to steal any smartphone. We will continue to encourage every actor in the smartphone industry, including Google, to take the necessary, additional step of ensuring this technology is opt-out on all devices.” Reference Link

13:09 EDTGOOGEarnings Preview: eBay to report Q3 earnings after PayPal spin-off announcement
eBay (EBAY) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, October 15 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. eBay is a technology company that enables commerce through Marketplaces, Payments, and GSI. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 67c on revenue of $4.37B. The consensus range is 65c-72c for EPS, and $4.33B-$4.43B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: eBay reported second quarter EPS of 69c against estimates of 68c on revenue of $4.37B against estimates of $4.38B. The company gave Q3 EPS guidance of 65c-67c and Q3 revenue guidance of $4.3B-$4.4B as well as FY14 EPS guidance of $2.95-$3.00. It narrowed FY14 revenue guidance to $18B-$18.3B from $18B-$18.5B. eBay said Google search algorithm change slowed traffic in June. The company confirmed the Q3 guidance during a conference call in September. NEWS AND STREET RESEARCH: eBay announced in late September that it will separate eBay and PayPal into two independent publicly traded companies, set to be completed in the second half of 2015. eBay Marketplaces President Devin Wenig will be the CEO of the new eBay company and Dan Schulman will become CEO of the new PayPal company. The cost of the transaction has yet to be determined, and the split is not designed to position either business for sale. During its conference call to discuss the split, the company said PayPal is on track to process 1B mobile payments this year and added that Apple (AAPL) could help speed NFC adoption and would be good for PayPal. eBay adds that it has "never been more bullish" on PayPal's prospects. Following the announcement, there were rumors that Google (GOOG) was looking to acquire eBay. Piper Jaffray said the press reports of the talks between the two companies are "largely unsubstantiated." The company was downgraded at JPMorgan, JMP Securities, Jeffries, and Wedbush after the announcement of a split due to increased uncertainty. Investors say the benefit of the spin-off plans are not as clear, unsure if a standalone PayPal is in a better position to compete in the quickly changing digital payments space. Wedbush analysts say a spin-off will not boost the payment processor's business and may have negative consequences for both companies. Investors were also split on how Apple's mobile payments platform will affect eBay and PayPal. RW Baird said Apple iWallet will pose a threat to PayPal, particularly to its opportunities at point-of-sale and Piper Jaffray said the new payments system will further weigh on eBay's multiple over the next six months. JPMorgan, however, said iWallet will be a net positive for payment networks and Citigroup believes the risks from Apple are likely overstated. PRICE ACTION: eBay shares have dropped more 2.21% since the first day of trading following the company's Q2 report. In Wednesday midday trading ahead of its earnings report, eBay shares are trading down 2%.

12:13 EDTAOLYahoo upgraded as BGC sees higher chances for tax efficient monetization
Research firm BGC Partners upgraded its rating on Yahoo (YHOO) to Buy from Hold, saying that the chances of the company monetizing its assets in a more tax efficient manner have increased now that Alibaba (BABA) has come public. Among the possible scenarios, Yahoo may be acquired by Alibaba, the firm added. WHAT'S NEW: Yahoo's chances of paying a relatively low tax rate on the sale of its stakes in Alibaba and Yahoo Japan, a Japanese Internet company, have risen, BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis stated. Yahoo could owe up to $15B of taxes on its sale of the assets, the analyst estimated. If Yahoo pays full tax liability, its stakes would be worth $43.5B. If it pays no taxes, the assets would be worth $58.5B, he estimated. Gillis set his price target on Yahoo at $50, representing the midpoint of the two scenarios, he stated. Among various scenarios that could play out, Alibaba could choose to buy Yahoo and subsequently unload Yahoo's core business and the American company's stake in Yahoo Japan, the analyst said. Yahoo shareholders could receive cash and shares of Alibaba as part of such a deal, Gillis stated. If Yahoo is not acquired by Alibaba, the American company should combine with AOL (AOL), as recently proposed by activist investor Starboard Value, Gillis contended. Merging with AOL could accelerate Yahoo's revenue growth by over 50% and increase its EBITDA by over 35%, Gillis estimated. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Yahoo fell 1% to $39.18.
