20:04 EDTFBFacebook virtual reality initiative picks up speed with $99 Samsung device
Thursday's Oculus Connect 2 event saw numerous announcements from Facebook (FB) virtual reality subsidiary Oculus VR, including content deals with major media players as well as a $99 VR headset developed in conjunction with Samsung (SSNLF). CONTENT OFFERINGS: The virtual reality firm will be partnering with Fox (FOX, FOXA) and Lionsgate (LGF) to bring more than 100 films to the Oculus Store at launch. Additionally, Netflix (NFLX), Amazon's (AMZN), TiVo (TIVO), and Hulu -- the joint venture of Disney (DIS), Fox, and Comcast's (CMCSA, CMCSK) NBCUniversal -- will be launching apps for the company's virtual reality products, bringing web TV and streaming content to early adopters of the new technology. MAINSTREAM DEVICE: Samsung joined with Oculus to reveal a new $99 "Gear VR" headset on Thursday. Standing in contrast to Oculus' own pricier devices, the Samsung headset will rely on the company's Galaxy line of smartphones to power its virtual reality experiences. Note that a major point of contention regarding the "blockbuster" potential -- or lack thereof -- of VR technology is whether consumers will be willing to pay upwards of $399 for the Oculus gadgets. Samsung's Gear VR tends more towards what Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has called "medium immersion" devices, potentially allaying investor concern over adoption rates with its more attractive point of entry. PRICE ACTION: Facebook shares closed higher by 0.5% and continued to rise in after-hours trading, up another 0.2%.

08:51 EDTFBCiti cuts Twitter estimates below consensus, drops target to $30
Citi analyst Mark May says his analysis indicates the consensus estimates for Twitter (TWTR) may be too high as they assume "meaningful increases" in monetization which he believes may prove difficult to realize. May cut his 2015, 2016 and 2017 earnings per share estimates for Twitter to 30c, 34c and 58c, respectively, well below the consensus estimates of 34c, 63c, and $1.03. He also cut his 2016 revenue estimate to 3% below the consensus. It will be difficult for the stock to achieve sustained multiple expansion until user growth accelerates and/or revenue growth stabilizes, May tells investors in a research note. He moved the stock to Citi's "High Risk" designation given Twitter's recent user trends and his belief that his estimates are unlikely to move up in the near-term. He keeps a Neutral rating on the name. May's top picks among U.S. Internet stocks remain Facebook (FB), (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY).

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.
06:32 EDTFB360-degree video should boost GoPro sales, says JPMorgan
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.
