13:52 EDTEBAYeBay advances slightly in down tape after Stifel upgrades shares
Shares of eBay (EBAY) are rising slightly in a down market after research firm Stifel upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold. WHAT'S NEW: The risk/reward ratio on eBay appears to be favorable, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt wrote in a note to investors today. In the most likely scenario for the company, the shares could increase as high as about $65 from their current level of around $55, but are unlikely to drop much below $50, Devitt believes. In a possible bullish scenario, the shares could go up to $75, the analyst stated. The spin off of eBay's PayPal business, expected to occur within nine months, should be a significant catalyst for the stock, while the gross merchandise volume generated by the company's marketplaces business should accelerate in the second half of next year, wrote Devitt. Marketplaces comparisons become easier starting in the second half of the year, the analyst explained. Additionally, eBay will begin to emphasize that the percentage of e-commerce transactions processed by PayPal is increasing, Devitt stated. Meanwhile, eBay's valuation is "compelling," and the upcoming spin-off reminds Devitt of the separation of Expedia (EXPE) and TripAdvisor (TRIP), which proved to be a positive catalyst, he wrote. Devitt set a $65 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, eBay gained 17c, or 0.3%, to $54.97.

10:20 EDTYHOOYahoo rises, Google falls after BofA changes ratings on both
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are rising and Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) stock is falling after Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Yahoo and downgraded Google. WHAT'S NEW: Bank of America analyst Justin Post upgraded his rating on Yahoo to Buy from Neutral. Post said he had previously not expected to obtain information about Yahoo's strategy for avoiding taxes on the sale of its stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) at least until well into 2015. However, Yahoo's CFO recently stated that the company continued to be optimistic that it would be able to cut its tax bill and added that the company would divulge its plans for doing so during its next earnings conference call. Yahoo's next earnings conference call is expected to take place by the end of next month, Post noted. He set a $62 price target on Yahoo shares. Meanwhile, Post downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The analyst thinks the company is facing several headwinds, including the maturity of its search business, a lack of products that can provide catalysts, and margin pressures as it invests in competitive businesses. As a result of these headwinds, Google's results are likely to be below expectations, Post believes. Meanwhile, the company is also facing increased regulatory risk, particularly in the EU, and increased competition from Facebook (FB) and other social networks. He trimmed his price target on Google to $580 from $600. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yahoo climbed 1% to $50.94, while Google class A shares declined 1.5% to $534.33.
