U.N.: Yahoo compliance with surveillance demands raises human rights concerns

David Kaye, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression, said that reports that Yahoo (YHOO) complied with US intelligence demands by searching the e-mails of hundreds of millions of customers raise serious human rights concerns. According to reports, Yahoo customized software to scan all incoming email traffic for information responsive to criteria provided by the US National Security Agency or the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "Government monitoring of digital communications, when conducted as described in recent reports, could undermine the privacy that individuals depend on in order to seek, receive and impart information online," Kaye said. "Based on the allegations reported, I have serious concerns that the alleged surveillance fails to meet the standards of necessity and proportionality for the protection of legitimate government interests." Yahoo has agreed to be acquired by Verizon (VZ). Reference Link

Yahoo price target raised to $55 from $48 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein raised his price target for Yahoo (YHOO) to $55 from $48, citing the positive move in Alibaba's (BABA) share price and the $4.1B taxable basis of Yahoo's core, disclosed in a proxy statement. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on Yahoo's shares.

Yahoo hack is probably not a material adverse change, says SunTrust
After Yahoo (YHOO) reported that over 500M of its accounts had been hacked, SunTrust analyst Robert Peck thinks that the news is probably not a material adverse change, or MAC, that would jeopardize the company's acquisition by Verizon (VZ). He notes that the sales contract says that a MAC will not be triggered by "any failure by Yahoo to meet its internal or published projections, budgets, plans, or forecasts of its revenues, earnings, or other financial performance or results of operations." The analyst says that the hack "may be manageable," since a majority of the victims could be e-mail users who are sticky. He keeps a Neutral rating on Yahoo.

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.

Citi hopes Disney does not acquire Twitter
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet lays out four reasons for why he doesn't like Disney (DIS) pursuing an acquisition of Twitter (TWTR). Going back 15 years, the analyst can't think of a single web-based property that was successfully acquired by a traditional media firm. Two, he calls Twitter trends "troubling." Three, Bazinet estimates a cash offer would lower Disney's stock by $5 per share while an equity offer would drop its stock by $9. Four, the analyst feels it is unclear how Disney's content will help Twitter. Bazinet thinks both Yahoo (YHOO) and Twitter lost "significant money" when they streamed NFL content over the web. The analyst hopes Twitter is acquired by somebody other than Disney. He keeps a Buy rating on Disney shares. Both Loop Capital and Mizuho this morning downgraded Twitter to sell ratings.

SunTrust sees 'limited' list of Twitter suitors, says activist action unlikely
SunTrust analyst Robert Peck reiterated his belief that Twitter (TWTR) is unlikely to sell itself in 2016 in a new note to investors, but noted that investors have asked him who would be interested if Twitter were open to a sale. While giving his opinion on potential acquirers - which he sees possibly including Google (GOOG), Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT), AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), Disney (DIS), Fox (FOXA), and Alibaba (BABA) - Peck said the company's high price and "unique" asset limit the potential buyers and gave his view that a PE buyer is highly unlikely given the company's lack of free cash flow. Additionally, Peck thinks activist action at Twitter seems "extremely unlikely" despite "unsubstantiated investor conjecture" and media reports. The analyst keeps Neutral rating and $18 price target on Twitter shares.

Concerns about Frontier Communications leverage overdone, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that some investors have expressed concern about Frontier's leverage ratio. Specifically, the firm says there are some worries that if Frontier has difficulty integrating the Verizon (VZ) assets it purchased, it may trigger bank covenants. However, Wells says that Frontier's synergy realization and subscription outlook have improved since Q2. Wells adds that the company's dividend is "very secure neat-term," and it keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.
