10:34 EDTYHOOAnalysts differ on Yelp after company said to halt sale process
The shares of Yelp (YELP) have fallen in each of the last two sessions after Bloomberg reported that its CEO had decided not to sell the company at this time. Two research firms were upbeat on the stock after the pullback, but Piper Jaffray's well-known analyst, Gene Munster, was cautious on the stock's near-term outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Last Thursday afternoon, Bloomberg reported that Yelp's CEO and founder Jeremy Stoppelman had decided not to sell the company in the near-term. Stoppelman's decision came after Goldman Sachs, which had been hired by Yelp to find potential buyers of the company, identified several interested suitors, the news service stated. BULLISH TAKE: Yelp's stock is significantly undervalued and investors should buy the shares, wrote Brean Capital analyst Tom Forte in a note to investors today. Noting that Bloomberg reported multiple potential suitors for Yelp had been found, Forte contended that many Alibaba (BABA), Amazon.com (AMZN), Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG), Groupon (GRPN), Microsoft (MSFT), Priceline (PCLN), Rakuten, and Yahoo! (YHOO) are all potential acquirers. Moreover, Stoppelman and Yelp's other board members probably decided not to sell Yelp because they believe that it is worth more than the stock indicates, according to Forte, who added that this stance indicates that the company's business has held up well recently. He kept a $58 price target and Buy rating on Yelp. Similarly, SunTrust analyst Robert Peck believes that many companies could still look to buy Yelp. Moreover, the company's valuation is "paltry" versus its peers, while Stoppelman's willingness to consider selling the company should support the stock, the analyst stated. Although Yelp is facing some challenges, its valuation already implies that consensus 2016 estimates for the company will drop by 10%-20%, according to Peck, who kept a Buy rating on the shares. BEARISH TAKE: In the wake of Bloomberg's report, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said he believes investors will conclude that Yelp was unable to sell itself. Additionally, comScore data for June indicates that Yelp's unique user metrics for the quarter will be disappointing, the analyst stated. However, he predicted that the company's user growth would reaccelerate in the fall, causing investor sentiment to rebound. Although Munster is upbeat on Yelp's long-term outlook, he cut his price target on the name to $40 from $46 and kept a Neutral rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Yelp fell 1.4% to $37.65. That follows the 10% decline the stock suffered on Thursday in its last day of trading prior to the long holiday weekend.
06:03 EDTYHOOBrean recommends buying shares of Yelp after selloff
Brean Capital analyst Tom Forte believes shares of Yelp are worth "a lot more than current levels" with or without a company sale. He recommends buying the name after Bloomberg reported Thursday that the company had called off its sale process. He points out the article noted that Yelp had multiple interested buyers. Forte's list of potential buyers for Yelp include Alibaba (BABA), Amazon.com (AMZN), Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG), Groupon (GRPN), Microsoft (MSFT), Priceline (PCLN), Rakuten, and Yahoo! (YHOO). Yelp operates the largest crowd-sourced local business directory globally, the analyst tells investors this morning in a research note. Forte keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $58 price target. Shares closed Thursday down $4.23 to $38.20.
