Twitter once tried to buy Shots for $150M, TechCrunch says

Twitter (TWTR) at one point attempted to acquire selfie app Shots for $150M to score its 3M teen users, TechCrunch reports, citing a source. Shots dismissed the idea of a buyout, but found it too difficult to compete with Instagram (FB) and Snapchat, the report says. The app has since rebranded as Shots Studios and shifted focus to content creation, the report notes. At this point, anything at or higher than the original $150M price from Twitter would be a large win for Shots' investors, the report says. Reference Link

Twitter worries obscuring positive trends for Salesforce, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Steve Koenig said his industry and partner checks don't point to any secular headwinds for Salesforce's (CRM) business, adding that the company gave several reassuring metrics on its progress in cross-selling, growing deal sizes, and expanding its large account base at its investor day event at the Dreamforce conference. At the investor day, management acknowledged conjecture about Salesforce trying to buy Twitter (TWTR), but deflected comments, with CFO Mark Hawkins suggesting that CEO Marc Benioff's Q&A session Wednesday afternoon may be a better forum for soliciting comments, noted Koenig. The analyst, who remains constructive on Salesforce as long as the company doesn't buy Twitter, keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Salesforce acquisition of Twitter 'quite low,' says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Kash Rangan said the probability of Salesforce (CRM) acquiring Twitter (TWTR) is "quite low." The analyst does not believe Salesforce would materially dilute its shareholders with such a risky deal and expects the CEO to provide clarity on the thought process behind core software acquisitions versus media at today's Q&A session. Rangan rates Salesforce a Buy with a $100 price target on shares.

BMO says Salesforce's positive messages overshadowed by Twitter speculation
BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman said the positive themes laid out by Salesforce (CRM) management at the company's Dreamforce event, such as guidance to reach $10B in FY18 revenues without inorganic sources of revenue, would traditionally help the stock. However, news reports, including the most recent from the Wall Street Journal, indicating that the company may buy Twitter (TWTR), will outweigh the "positive messages" of the event. If Salesforce were to buy Twitter, the stock would move meaningfully lower, Bachman predicted, but he also wonders if strategic buyers would then potentially consider buying Salesforce. The firm keeps its Outperform rating on Salesforce shares.

Stifel still sees Salesforce acquisition of Twitter as 'highly unlikely'
Stifel analyst Tom Roderick notes that Salesforce (CRM) kicked off its annual Dreamforce User Conference yesterday amid reports that the company may be a potential suitor for Twitter (TWTR). The analyst still believes that a Salesforce acquisition of Twitter is "highly unlikely," both from a logistical standpoint and from a business model fit perspective. Regarding fundamentals, Roderick continues to view Salesforce as a leading driver of the enterprise shift to the Cloud, and sees no reason why that shouldn't continue to play out in the second half of 2017, in spite of recent concerns about the mid-year slowdown. He reiterates a Buy rating and $93 price target on Salesforce's shares.

Facebook video measurement gaffe has no impact on MeetMe, says Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Darren Aftahi noted that recent bear reports, including one that surfaced yesterday, regarding MeetMe (MEET) contend that the company could be negatively impacted by spillover from Facebook's (FB) admission that it had been overstating time spent by its users watching video on its platform, but he does not expect Facebook's issue to have any impact on MeetMe. He also said that, contrary to bear assertions of bad reviews, MeetMe's app scores well relative to Tinder and Snapchat. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on MeetMe and sees pullbacks following short reports as buying opportunities.

Baird says impact on eBay from Facebook's Marketplace likely limited for now
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said Facebook's (FB) launch of its long-anticipated peer-to-peer commerce platform, "Marketplace," came "much later" than he anticipated, but he still thinks Facebook is well positioned to compete in consumer shopping. Facebook's latest e-commerce effort will create headlines around competitive pressure, but Sebastian thinks Amazon (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY) will be "minimally impacted" in the near term given their scale, brand awareness, and much more advanced e-commerce capabilities. eBay may be most exposed, but the analyst also notes that 80% of its listings are new products, which may have limited overlap with Facebook listings.

Facebook issues at Marketplace launch a 'non-event,' says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster noted that after Facebook launched its new Marketplace offering on Monday that some users listed prohibited items, such as guns and drugs, that were not caught as they should have been by the company's filter. However, he views the misstep at launch as a "non-event" and thinks nothing has changed in term of Facebook's ability to build world-class products and go after new markets. Munster keeps an Overweight rating and $185 price target on Facebook shares.
