10:13 EDTYELP, YHOOResearch firms upbeat on Yelp after partnership deals
Two research firms issued positive notes on Yelp (YELP) earlier today, saying that the company's recently announced partnerships are positive for the company. Yelp offers reviews of local businesses. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, Wunderlich analyst Blake Harper raised his price target on the stock to $90 from $78. Yelp's deal with YP, formerly known as Yellow Pages, should enable Yelp to increase its penetration of the local ad market, Harper predicted. While YP is much maligned due to its weakening print business, the company has significant brand name recognition and had over 120M unique visitors to its website in Q4, the analyst noted. The deal will enable Yelp to more effectively expand its business, according to Harper, who kept a Buy rating on the stock. Meanwhile, Stifel analyst Michael Purcell wrote in a note to investors earlier today that Yelp's YP deal along with its deal with Yahoo (YHOO) highlight the review site owner's growing strength in the local ad market. Yelp's partnership strategy increases the website's distribution and usage rates, while raising the number of marketing solutions that the company can provide to local businesses, Purcell contended. He kept a $95 price target and Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yelp was up 0.9% to $78.00.
