Yelp is a multi-national corporation headquartered in San Francisco, California. It
develops, hosts and markets and the Yelp mobile app, which publish
crowd-sourced reviews about local businesses, as well as online reservation
service SeatMe and food delivery service Eat24. The company also trains small
businesses to respond to reviews responsibly, hosts social events for reviewers,
and provides data about businesses, such as health inspection scores.

Yelp was founded in 2004 by former Paypal employees at the startup incubator
MRL Ventures. It was initially an unsuccessful email-based referral service, but was
re-launched on the basis of unsolicited online reviews in late 2005. Yelp grew
quickly and raised several rounds of funding. By 2010 it had $30 million in
revenues and the website had published more than 4.5 million crowd-sourced
reviews. From 20092012, Yelp expanded throughout Europe and Asia. In 2009 it
entered negotiations with Google for a potential acquisition, but a deal was never
reached. Yelp became a public company in March 2012 and became profitable for
the first time two years later. As of 2014, has 135 million monthly visitors
and 71 million reviews. The company's revenues come from businesses being
reviewed on the site paying to advertise.
According to BusinessWeek, Yelp has "always had a complicated relationship with
small businesses."[2] Some of the disputes between Yelp and business owners are
regarding businesses that fraudulently write reviews on their own locations,
accusations of Yelp manipulating reviews to extort ad spending, concerns about
the authenticity of reviews as well as the privacy and freedom of speech of

Premature Sell in May action stirs up more bubble banter
Published: May 1, 2015 5:26 a.m. ET
Seems the Sell in May folks arrived a day early. But what do they know? This
particular market axiom has got to be so tired by now, it cant possibly work
right? Thats what happens. A small trend becomes a large trend, and then it
becomes no trend at all. Lately, though, this one is different.
What makes the Sell In May phenomenon so unusual is that it has persisted,
despite its broad awareness, Dana Lyons of J. Lyons Fund Management said. In
fact ... there are signs that the trend has actually grown stronger in recent years.
He says that, over the past two decades, Mays propensity to form a short-term
top is noticeably greater than any other month. Check out the data.
Selling in May might also help you get out of the way of the dreaded bubblepopping event so many have been fretting over for so long. Often, long enough to
miss out on some huge gains.
GMOs Jeremy Grantham sees an implosion out there somewhere, but not for
another 8% on the S&P. The current Fed is bound and determined to continue
stimulating asset prices until we once again have a fully-fledged bubble, he said.
And we are not there yet. Comforting?
So many pundits are all over the map with this top-calling business, its probably
best to put the whole Wall Street noisemaker on mute when it comes to bubble
banter. Ben Carlson of the Wealth of Common Sense blog took a look at just how
impossible it is to nail a market peak.
Following the market crash and the Great Recession, it seems that everyone in
the market has decided its now quite easy to call the next correction or market

peak. Just ask them, he said. Unfortunately, calling a top is not as easy as it looks
in the rearview mirror.
He used this great chart to show the various market characteristics surrounding
previous bubbles. Good luck finding a discernible pattern among these prior
market peaks, he said.

Nike's stock rallies to within reach of a record high after analyst upgrade

Published: Mar 30, 2015 11:44 a.m. ET

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Nike Inc.'s stock NKE, -0.29% rallied 1.3% in midday
trade Monday, after the athletic apparel and shoe seller was upgraded by RW
Baird, which cited a rising preference for active lifestyles against a backdrop of
robust consumer spending. Analyst Jonathan Komp raised his rating to outperform
from neutral, and lifted his stock price target to $115--14% above current levels-from $102. Nike's strong operating fundamentals sets the company up to capitalize
on "a healthy consumer spending backdrop combined with secular shifts in
consumer purchase behavior," which helps justify the "valuation expansion and
outperformance year to date," Komp wrote in a note to clients. Nike's stock, a
component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.16% was now within
0.8% of its March 20 record closing high of $101.98. It has rallied 5.2% year to
date while the Dow has gained 0.9%. Komp also upgraded the shares of Wolverine
World Wide Inc. WWW, +0.60% to outperform from neutral, but downgraded
Genesco Inc.GCO, +1.23% to neutral from outperform.

Can Under Armour build a $1 billion basketball business on Stephen Curry?

Published: Apr 21, 2015 2:01 p.m. ET

Stephen Curry is the best shooter in the National Basketball Association, bar none,
a favorite to win this years Most Valuable Player award and he could be worth
$1 billion to athletic apparel maker Under Armour Inc.
At least, thats what Chief Executive Kevin Plank is hoping.
During a call with investors following the companys first-quarter earnings report on
Tuesday, Plank said Under Armours UA, +1.13% goal is to build a $1 billion
basketball brand centered around Curry.
Im as proud, I think, of the quality of people we have, Plank said, speaking about
how Curry carries himself off the court. But from the Curry One [basketball shoe]
to the Curry Two, weve been modifying and chasing that a little bit where we had
pretty limited expectations of what we really wanted to do with that product to begin

with... Its going to help elevate what was about a $100 million basketball business.
And you know our goal is building a billion-dollar-basketball brand.
Under Armour said footwear revenue in the first quarter climbed 41% over a year
ago to $161 million. It attributed the strong growth to the introduction of the Curry
One signature basketball shoe, along with new offerings of the SpeedForm running
While Under Armour seems to be on the right track, senior Sterne Agee & Leach
analyst Sam Poser said talk of a billion-dollar basketball business is premature.
Under Armours basketball business would have to grow 30% a year for the next
10 years for it to reach $1 billion, he said, and thats a tough challenge.
Rival Nike Inc.s NKE, -0.26% Jordan Brand is the premier basketball shoe, so
much so that its outgrown the hardwood to become a style. But Poser points out
that Jordan Brand, built around long-retired Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan, has
been around for three decades. Poser said Under Armour has a huge opportunity
in 27-year-old Curry, but the basketball star will have to develop appeal beyond his
on-court performance.
Stephen Curry is a great player, Poser said. But its about whether hes able to
gain that iconic status where wearing his shoes is cool.
