13:06 EDTGOOGCompetitors ask EU to probe Google ad technology market practices, FT says
Several of Google's (GOOG) rivals, including OpenX and AppNexus, which is part owned by WPP (WPPGY) and Microsoft (MSFT), have suggested that the European Union investigate the internet giant, claiming it may be unlawfully stifling competition in the market for advertising technology, the Financial Times reports. The companies' grievances relate to the way in which Google bundles its advertising technology products through contracts that may discourage or even prevent customers from using competitors' services, the report says. The companies in question have submitted documents to the EU expressing concern over the issue but have not submitted an official complaint, the report adds. Reference Link
12:32 EDTYHOOOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday as slides in a number of big name tech stocks following their earnings reports dominated the news flow and largely dictated the market's direction. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA home price index rose 0.4% to 222.8 in May, as expected. Existing home sales rose 3.2% to a 5.49M rate in June, better than the 0.9% increase that was expected. In Europe, the European Central Bank reportedly raised the cap on Greece's Emergency Liquidity Assistance by EUR900M to EUR90.4B, according to Bloomberg. COMPANY NEWS: The tech sector has been weak, headlined of course by a 5% pullback in shares of Apple (AAPL) after iPhone shipments in the just completed quarter and the company's sales forecast for the new quarter missed estimates. Adding to the negative tone in tech stocks, and contributing further to the decline in the Nasdaq, was the 3% drop seen in Microsoft (MSFT) shares after its quarterly report as well as Yahoo's (YHOO) 1% decline after its revenue outlook missed the consensus forecast... Shares of Boeing (BA) and Coca-Cola (KO) fared better than Dow peer Apple after each reported better than expected sales and profits, though neither stock was moving far from where they closed yesterday's trading. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Thoratec (THOR), which rose 10% after the company agreed to be acquired by St. Jude Medical (STJ) for $3.4 billion in cash, or $63.50 per share. St. Jude shares advanced fractionally after the deal, which had been foreshadowed by media reports yesterday, was announced. Also higher following their earnings reports were Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), which gained 10%, Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which advanced 8% and Whirlpool (WHR), which was up 6%. Among the noteworthy losers were a number of suppliers to Apple that declined in tandem with the tech giant after it reported a sequential drop in iPhone sales. Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), Cirrus Logic (CRUS), Qorvo (QRVO) and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) were among the many semiconductor stocks that slid following Apple's report. Also sharply lower was antibody-based therapeutics maker XOMA (XOMA), which plunged more than 73% and was downgraded to Neutral at Piper Jaffray after a Phase III trial of its gevokizumab drug in patients with Behcet's disease uveitis did not meet its primary endpoint. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 82.22, or 0.46%, to 17,837.07, the Nasdaq was down 42.68, or 0.82%, to 5,165.44, and the S&P 500 was down 6.93, or 0.33%, to 2,112.28.

19:09 EDTYHOO, GOOGYahoo CEO sees Q3 pressure on revenue ex-TAC and adjusted EBITDA
Speaking on the company's Q2 earnings conference call, Yahoo (YHOO) CEO Marissa Mayer said she is "pleased" with momentum in display business, adding that the company will continue to focus on sustaining GAAP revenue growth while striving to grow adjusted EBITDA. She noted search clicks were up 13% for the quarter, and mobile user base was up 14%. Mayer cautioned that the Gemini search platform will see pricing pressure and reduced revenue per search in the near-term as Yahoo optimizes the service. She said she expects "some" pressure in Q3 including pressure on revenue ex-TAC and adjusted EBITDA, and remarked separately that Yahoo has been investing "modestly" over the past two years in algorithmic and paid search technologies. Finally, Mayer declined to speculate on any future agreements with Google (GOOG). CFO Ken Goldman said the company's "highest priority" is to execute the Alibaba (BABA) spinoff this year. Goldman also noted that Yahoo's board of directors and management team have met with advisors to review alternatives with regards to Yahoo Japan, but had no specific conclusion to share.
