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.

09:24 EDTYELPBaird sees risk of pullback in Yelp with no deal
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors this morning that shares of Yelp are at risk of a pullback if a takeover is not consummated "within the relatively near future." Sebastian, while stating Yelp's content and review database could make an attractive acquisition candidate for a "number of platform companies," writes that the risk/reward is "roughly balanced" following last week's rally amid reports of a potential buyout. The analyst cautions that a sales process, as the Wall Street Journal reported Yelp is undertaking, does not guarantee a transaction, as Shutterfly (SFLY) recently showed. With a deal not consummating in the near term, Sebastian sees "increasing risks" in owning Yelp shares above the $50 level. The stock closed Friday at $49.93. Sebastian has a Neutral rating on Yelp with a $46 price target.
