11:54 EDTYELPYelp advances after Citi upgrades stock
Shares of Yelp (YELP) are climbing after Citigroup upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold in a note to investors earlier today. Yelp's website provides user reviews of local businesses. WHAT'S NEW: The recent decline in Yelp's stock creates a buying opportunity, wrote Citi analyst Mark May. Additionally, the company can significantly expand its market share, enabling its revenue to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 32% over the next five years, May believes. Meanwhile, Yelp's earnings per share, excluding certain items, should grow at a compound annual growth rate of 56%, added the analyst. He has a $76 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors on April 14, research firm Pacific Crest reported that more consumers were utilizing Yelps reviews of businesses other than restaurants. Non-restaurant businesses are the primary source of growth for Yelp, added the firm, which kept a $115 price target and Outperform rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Yelp rose $1.07, or 2%, to $64.

06:32 EDTYELPBlue Calypso files motion to lift stay in patent infringement cases and appeal
Blue Calypso (BCYP) announced that it has filed a motion in the Eastern District of Texas to lift the negotiated stay on the pending patent infringement litigation between the Company and Groupon (GRPN), Yelp (YELP), Foursquare and IZEA.PK. The Company has also filed notices of appeal at the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in each of the Covered Business Method Review cases at the Patent Trial and Appeals Board. On January 14, 2014, the parties agreed to stay the litigation in the Eastern District pending the decisions from the PTAB as to validity of the patents. As a part of agreeing to join the stay, the parties jointly agreed to ask the Court to lift the stay and for an expedited litigation schedule if any of the asserted claims were held valid by the PTAB. The PTAB now has confirmed the validity of twenty-eight claims and Blue Calypso, through its counsel, has asked the Court to lift the stay according to the agreement. The defendants refused to participate in the motion to lift the stay as previously agreed, and have instead asked the Court to leave the stay in place in a separate motion.
