11:21 EDTYHOOYahoo downgraded, continues slide following Alibaba IPO
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are falling after two research firms downgraded the stock following Friday's initial public offering of China's Alibaba (BABA), in which the U.S. company owned a 23% stake. BACKGROUND: On September 19, Alibaba opened for trade on the NYSE at $92.70 after the company's 320.1M shares were originally priced at $68. Alibaba closed Friday at $93.89 per share, giving it a market value of over $230B. Yahoo sold nearly 122M shares that it owned in the Chinese e-commerce giant as part of the IPO, which left it with a stake of 401.8M shares. ANALYST OPINION: This morning, Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Justin Post downgraded Yahoo to Neutral from Buy. He feels that Yahoo is no longer the optimum means to gain Alibaba exposure and that some investment funds will likely exit shares. Post believes that some traders might be now utilizing Yahoo as a short proxy for the Chinese company's stock. Yahoo will potentially allocate some of the Alibaba debut proceeds to acquisitions, Post wrote, and added that Yahoo could also possibly spin-off its Alibaba shares into an entirely separate publicly traded company or that Alibaba could look to buy Yahoo to get back the stake the U.S. company holds. Despite cutting his rating on the stock, Post raised his price target on Yahoo to $46 from $40 to reflect the valuation of its Alibaba position. Bernstein analyst Carlos Kirjner also downgraded Yahoo this morning, lowering his rating on the stock to Market Perform from Outperform. Kirjner is not certain whether Yahoo's stock can grow meaningfully from its current levels now that the Alibaba IPO has come and gone. The analyst maintains a $42 price target on Yahoo. PRICE ACTION: During morning trading, shares of Yahoo fell $2.31 or 5.6%, to $38.62. On Friday the stock ended the day down $1.15, or 2.74%, to close at $40.93. Shares of Alibaba were down about 4% to $90.05 in morning trading.

17:09 EDTMSFTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed to begin the week, as the Dow managed to register mild gains but the Nasdaq was weighed down by slides in a number of so-called "momentum stocks" like Tesla (TSLA). Investors may remain cautious in the next two sessions ahead of the Fed's much anticipated rate decision and accompanying statement, which is due Wednesday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., New York Fed's Empire state survey for September rose to a five-year high of 27.54. Industrial production unexpectedly dipped 0.1% in August from a downwardly revised 0.2% July gain, missing the forecast for a rise of 0.3%. Capacity utilization dropped to 78.8% last month from 79.1% previously. In China, industrial output increased 6.9% in August versus the same period a year earlier, which was its weakest advance, excluding months that fell during New Year holidays, since December 2008. Chinese retail sales growth for August came in at 11.9%, missing the consensus estimate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) edged down 3c, or 0.03%, to $101.63 despite the company's announcement that a record 4M iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders were placed in the first 24 hours that ordering was available. Demand for the new phones exceeds the initial pre-order supply, the company added, stating that delivery of "many" iPhone pre-orders have been pushed out to October... Microsoft (MSFT) slid 45c, or 0.97%, to $46.24 after the company confirmed an agreement to acquire Mojang, the developer for the "Minecraft" video game franchise, for $2.5B... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Avanir Pharmaceuticals (AVNR), which surged $5.75, or 85.31%, to $12.49 and was upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies after the company announced results from its phase II clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of its treatment of agitation in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Also higher was SABMiller (SBMRY), which jumped $4.72, or 8.5%, to $60.26 after the Wall Street Journal said that ABInBev (BUD) was looking to obtain financing for an acquisition of the U.K.-based brewer and Heineken (HEINY) confirmed that it rebuffed SABMiller's approach regarding a potential transaction. The news of potential consolidation in the space also drove other beer makers highers, with Molson Coors (TAP) rising $4.20, or 5.85%, to $76.00 and Boston Beer (SAM) gaining 71c, or 0.33%, to $218.47. Among the noteworthy losers was Tesla (TSLA), which dropped $25.34, or 9.08%, to $253.86 after Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jones wrote that he agrees with the assertion of Tesla's CEO Elon Musk that the company's stock may have gotten ahead of itself. Also lower were shares of NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP), which fell $5.42, or 16.56%, to $27.28 after Oppennheimer and Jefferies stated that approval of its Natpara drug for hypoparathyroidism could be delayed after concerns were raised during an FDA panel meeting, even though the advisors were in favor of approving the drug. INDEXES: The Dow rose 43.63, or 0.26%, to 17,031.14, the Nasdaq dropped 48.70, or 1.07%, to 4,518.90, and the S&P 500 declined 1.41, or 0.07%, to 1,984.13.

11:45 EDTMSFTMicrosoft slips after confirming purchase of Minecraft maker
Shares of software giant Microsoft (MSFT) are lower after the company reached an agreement to acquire Mojang, the developer for the "Minecraft" video game franchise. WHAT'S NEW: Microsoft announced this morning that it agreed to acquire Mojang for $2.5B. The company expects the acquisition to be break-even in FY15 on a GAAP basis. The acquisition is expected to close in late 2014. Microsoft plans to continue to make "Minecraft" available across all the platforms on which it is available today, which include its own Xbox platform, as well as on PCs, iOS, Android, and Sony's (SNE) PlayStation. "Minecraft" has had more than 100M downloads on PC alone since its launch in 2009, the company stated. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The announcement confirms a Wall Street Journal report from September 9 that said Microsoft was nearing a deal to buy the game maker for more than $2B. The report noted a Mojang acquisition would be the first multi-billion dollar acquisition by CEO Satya Nadella and it may be an unexpected push after Nadella had signaled a focus on its enterprise business rather than its consumer ones. Ahead of the acquisition, Reuters reported on September 13 that the impending purchase is aimed at pulling users onto Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. In the report, Tap Lab CEO Dave Bisceglia said, "If Microsoft could on Windows phones give players a unique and compelling experience that you can't get on the other platforms, that could be a driver to sell devices to existing Minecraft fans.” ANALYST OPINION: The Reuters report also cited Nomura analyst Rick Sherlund, who said "We don't view this acquisition as a signal of Microsoft's intent to double down on Xbox but consider it an attempt to better address mobile on a cross-platform basis." Also commenting on Microsoft this morning was Morgan Stanley, which expects the company to have a durable 12%-14% total return profile from full-year 2015 to full-year 2017. The firm increased its price target on the stock to $51 from $43, but with Microsoft trading at a 13% premium to the S&P, Morgan Stanley said investors should wait for better entry points before getting more aggressive in buying the shares. The firm added that Microsoft's solid enterprise business, stabilizing consumer business, and a shift towards more attractive cloud assets puts its on a more solid footing than it has ever seen, pointing towards sustained EPS growth. PRICE ACTION : In late-morning trading, Microsoft fell $0.42, or 0.9%, to $46.28.

The same report noted that Brad Smith, general counsel of Microsoft (MSFT), said some in the industry have "underestimated the degree to which people care about privacy,” while Salesforce.com (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff said consumer Internet companies have “paid a terrible price” for imposing a U.S.-centric view of their technology.
