The analyst believes the transaction could be positive for Yahoo (YHOO), which he views as the "last remaining large scale digital Media company of its kind." Squali has a Buy rating on Yahoo with a $60 price target.

Microsoft (MSFT) announced in a blog post that over the past nine months, "Microsoft has been significantly investing in subsea and terrestrial dark fiber capacity by engaging in fiber partnerships that span multiple oceans and continents. And today, our connections across the Atlantic and Pacific just got stronger.We announced deals with Hibernia and Aqua Comms, in which Microsoft is investing in a cable with each company to connect Microsoft’s datacenter infrastructure from North America to Ireland and on to the United Kingdom. These cables will help deliver data at higher speeds, with higher capacity and lower latency for our customers across the globe. Additionally, we joined a consortium comprised of China Mobile (CHL), China Telecom (CHA), China Unicom (CHU), Chunghwa Telecom (CHT), KT Corporation (KT) with TE SubCom as the cable supplier. As part of our participation in the consortium, Microsoft will invest in its first physical landing station in the US connecting North America to Asia. The New Cross Pacific Cable Network will provide faster data connections for customers, aid Microsoft in competing on cloud costs, all while creating jobs and spurring local economies. The goal of our expansions and investments in subsea cables is so our customers have the greatest access to scale and highly available data, anywhere." Reference Link

09:24 EDTYELPBaird sees risk of pullback in Yelp with no deal
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors this morning that shares of Yelp are at risk of a pullback if a takeover is not consummated "within the relatively near future." Sebastian, while stating Yelp's content and review database could make an attractive acquisition candidate for a "number of platform companies," writes that the risk/reward is "roughly balanced" following last week's rally amid reports of a potential buyout. The analyst cautions that a sales process, as the Wall Street Journal reported Yelp is undertaking, does not guarantee a transaction, as Shutterfly (SFLY) recently showed. With a deal not consummating in the near term, Sebastian sees "increasing risks" in owning Yelp shares above the $50 level. The stock closed Friday at $49.93. Sebastian has a Neutral rating on Yelp with a $46 price target.
