05:44 EDTBIDUBaidu upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Cynthia Meng upgraded Baidu to Buy saying concerns around search ad spending are overdone. Recent channel checks with top ad agents indicated "strong traction" for performance-based ads, with any cuts to ad budgets being mostly offset by more allocation toward key word search from display ads, Meng tells investors in a research note. At current levels, Meng believes Baidu shares have largely priced in reduced earnings growth expectations. She keeps a price target of $210 for the stock. The Chinese search giant closed Friday up 7c to $152.13.

06:13 EDTYHOOThird Point, FTC settle over antitrust filings for 2011 Yahoo stake
Three affiliated hedge fund companies and their management company, Third Point LLC, have agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that they violated premerger reporting laws in connection with their 2011 acquisitions of stock in Yahoo! Inc. The complaint alleges that Third Point Partners Qualified L.P., Third Point Ultra, LTD, and Third Point Offshore Fund, LTD failed to observe the filing and waiting requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act before purchasing shares in Yahoo. According to the complaint, the three defendant funds claimed that they were exempt from reporting to the U.S. antitrust authorities because the purchases were made solely for investment purposes. At the time of the stock purchases, however, defendant Third Point LLC, which made investment decisions on behalf of the funds, was taking actions inconsistent with an investment-only intent, such as communicating with third parties to determine their interest in becoming the CEO or a board candidate of Yahoo. Under the terms of the proposed stipulated five-year federal court order, the defendants are prohibited from relying on the investment-only exemption if they have contacted third parties to gauge their interest in joining the board of the target company, communicated with the target company about proposed candidates for its board, or engaged in other specified conduct in the four months prior to acquiring voting securities above the HSR Act threshold. In this case, the agencies determined not to seek civil penalties based on several factors, including that the violation was inadvertent and short-lived, and this was the defendants' first violation of the HSR Act.
