06:59 EDTFBFacebook and Google more 'Yelp-like' than ever, says Northland
Northland analyst Darren Aftahi says Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG, GOOGL) and (AMZN) have recently added new features that focus on improved local search as well as tools enabling easier business-consumer communication. Facebook and Google are now more "Yelp-like" than ever, Aftahi tells investors in a research note. And while Apple's (AAPL) new "swipe right" feature could drive a near-term surge in Yelp (YELP) app downloads, it may translate into lower engagement on the Yelp app over longer term, the analyst argues. He remains cautious on Yelp's growth prospects and cut his price target for the stock to $17.75 from $21.50. Shares of the local business review site closed yesterday down 25c to $23.10. Aftahi has an Underperform rating on the stock, his firm's equivalent of a sell.

JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster believes GoPro (GPRO) has first-mover advantage in the creation of high-quality, low-cost 360-degree content after being named the exclusive spherical content provider for Facebook's (FB) News Feed. Coster is "still reeling from the experience" of riding yesterday via Facebook with Ronnie Renner across the dunes of Idaho. The launch of 360-degree content on Facebook's News Feed should spur sales of GoPro's hardware and give momentum to the company's media and entertainment initiatives, Coster tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the action camera maker with a $75 price target. The stock closed yesterday down 67c to $32.64.

10:42 EDTYHOOAnalyst says IRS statement removes some risk for Yahoo
An IRS official said that the agency's recent direction on the tax treatment of transactions like Yahoo's (YHOO) planned spinoff of its stake in Alibaba (BABA) "is not a description of future guidance," reported FBR Capital analyst William Bird, who views the comments as incrementally positive for the U.S. tech company. BACKGROUND: On September 8, Yahoo reported that the IRS refused to take a position on whether Yahoo could carry out a tax-free spinoff of its huge stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba. On September 15, the agency, without mentioning Yahoo or Alibaba by name, stated that "certain distributions" about which the agency had received inquiries may not meet requirements for tax-advantaged treatment. WHAT'S NEW: IRS Associate Chief Counsel Robert Wellen said on Friday that the agency's statement "is not a description of future guidance," FBR's Bird wrote in a note to investors today. The IRS hasn't made any decision about the guidance it could issue regarding spinoffs, Bird quoted Wellen as saying. The agency does not want to make a judgment on Yahoo's proposed spinoff while it is still studying the rules, Wellen explained, according to Bird. Wellen's statement appears to be positive for Yahoo, as it at least removes the possibility that Yahoo's transaction will be subject to potentially more restrictive upcoming rules, according to Bird. However, the analyst believes that the outlook for the tax treatment of Yahoo's spinoff remains uncertain. He kept an Outperform rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: A lockup on about 1.58B shares of Alibaba's stock expired on Saturday, meaning that the holders of the shares are able to sell them for the first time today. However, Alibaba founder and chairman Jack Ma and vice chairman Joseph Tsai hold 269M of the shares whose lockup expired, and Tsai has said that they have no intention of selling significant amounts of their shares following the lockup expiration. Yahoo has another 384M of the Alibaba shares whose lockup expired. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yahoo rose 2.6% to $31.54 and Alibaba slipped 1.6% to $64.66.

08:19 EDTYHOOFriday's IRS comments remove one Yahoo risk, says FBR Capital
FBR Capital analyst William Bird views comments from the Internal Revenue Service on Friday at the ABA meeting as incrementally positive for Yahoo (YHOO). Robert Wellen, IRS Associate Chief Counsel, said Friday that his agency's recent notice "is not a description of future guidance" and that "nothing in this notice affects an immediate retroactive date." The analyst believes the comments take one Yahoo risk off the table, namely the retroactive treatment of potential new rules. However, anything shy of a definitive tax ruling on Yahoo's planned spinoff of its Alibaba (BABA) holdings falls short of fully resolving tax uncertainties, Bird tells investors in a research note. No timeline was given for how long the IRS plans to study the spinoff questions under tax code Section 355, analyst points out. He keeps an Outperform rating on Yahoo. The stock is up 23c to $30.97 in pre-market trading. Alibaba, which has 63% percent of its outstanding shares come off lockup today, is up 77c to $65.19 in trading before the opening bell.
