Facebook to take on eBay, Craigslist with new Marketplace destination

Facebook (FB) announced that it is introducing "Marketplace," which the company calls a "convenient destination to discover, buy and sell items with people in your community." Facebook said that Marketplace, which will compete with services such as those offered by eBay (EBAY) and Craigslist, makes it "easy to find new things you'll love, and find a new home for the things you're ready part with." Facebook added: "Over the next few days, Marketplace will be rolling out to everyone over 18 years old in the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand on the Facebook app for iPhone and Android. We will continue expanding to additional countries and make Marketplace available on the desktop version of Facebook in the coming months." In pre-market trading, eBay shares are down 3.3% to $31.80.

Facebook inaccurate average video viewing times immaterial, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Robert Peck does not believe that Facebook's overstatement of average video viewing times is significant. The analyst says that the metric does not affect budgets and ROI, while Facebook "was quick and open about the issue." He thinks that the website's reach makes it "a must buy for advertisers." Peck keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Yelp takeout chances increased with share conversion, says Cantor
Yelp's (YELP) conversion of Class B super-voting shares into regular Class A shares late last week increases the company's takeout potential, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali tells investors in a research note. Yelp, especially following recent improvements in the underlying growth fundamentals of the business, has become "an easier, and more likely" acquisition target, the analyst contends. The analyst views Facebook (FB), Priceline (PCLN), TripAdvisor (TRIP) and Microsoft (MSFT) as potential acquirers of Yelp. Squali estimates Yelp could be worth $53 per share in a takeout. He keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $42 price target. The stock is up 2% to $40.35 in early trading.

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.

BofA thinks Verizon deal stays on track despite Yahoo data breach
Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Justin Post said that Yahoo's (YHOO) disclosure of the massive data breach impacting over 500M of its users is clearly a negative for the company that could result in email account closures, but he does not anticipate a major impact on Yahoo's business related to this breach, citing as evidence the fact that he is not aware of any significant business impairment or financial liability related to security breaches at LinkedIn (LNKD) in 2012 and at eBay (EBAY) in 2014. Post adds that the Target (TGT) data breach, which did include credit card info, is not directly comparable to Yahoo's breach. For Verizon (VZ) to back out of its acquisition agreement, Post thinks the company would need to assume Yahoo acted in bad faith during negotiations and that the Yahoo asset is impaired or comes with significant liability, neither of which he sees as being the case. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Yahoo and bumped his target on the shares to $55 from $53, citing an increased price target on Alibaba (BABA) that a peer at the firm recently set.

Deutsche upgrades eBay to Buy with $40 price target
Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler upgraded eBay to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $40 from $30. The stock closed yesterday down 9c to $31.85. eBay is likely to outperform Internet peers over the next two years now that its re-platforming is in the latter stages, Sandler tells investors in a research note. There are few "out-of-favor accelerating-growth stories with upside to estimates and a reasonably low valuation," the analyst contends. He believes eBay may be the best story in Internet heading into 2017.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. eBay (EBAY) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Ross Sandler saying eBay is likely to outperform Internet peers over the next two years now that its re-platforming is in the latter stages. 2. BlackBerry (BBRY) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Macquarie with analyst Gus Papageorgiou saying he expects operations to stabilize and profitability to return next year. 3. Endo (ENDP) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Northland. 4. Rex Energy (REXX) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Stifel with analyst Michael Scialla saying the production cut may not actually occur, but he believes that other factors, along with positive commentary from OPEC, "appears to be building an oil price floor of $40." 5. Incyte (INCY) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Reni Benjamin saying Epacadostat plus pembrolizumab, should ;the results be confirmed in the ongoing Phase III study, could effectively compete with ipilimumab and nivolumab.
