Defending Market Shares and Shifting Tides - Research Report on Google Inc., Facebook Inc., Yahoo! Inc., AOL, Inc. and Linkedin Corporation

NEW YORK, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO), AOL, Inc. (NYSE:AOL) and Linkedin Corporation (NYSE:LNKD). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.

Google Inc. Research Report

Google's share price is currently in its record-high territory hovering just below the $800 mark, continuing to rally after releasing solid financial numbers earlier this year. Its core search business had undergone changes in its search campaigns, placing larger emphasis on smartphone and tablet segments. The move addresses Google's declining cost-per-click statistics and the need to monetize the so-called "mobile gap." In addition, there are rumors of Google retail stores coming up in an attempt to follow Apple's example in building a consumer-electronics brand. The stores are seen to be selling Google-branded hardware like its Nexus tablets and smartphones and Chromebooks, though the plan may not push through this year.

Facebook Inc. Research Report

Facebook is still the number one web destination with a 10.8 percent share of total time spent online in December 2012, according to data gathered by analytics firm ComScore. The site demands the most attention compared to its closest competitors, even though Google sites commanded a larger audience with 191.4 million people in the US. Google came in second place in terms of share of time spent online at 10 percent, while Tumblr.com is second among social media sites. Specifically, Facebook also accounted for 5 out of every 6 minutes spent on social sites, or about 83 percent of time spent online. Tumblr meanwhile accounts for 5.7 percent of time spent online on social sites, followed by Pinterest and Twitter at 1.9 and 1.7 percent, respectively. In other news, Facebook looks to be one of the forerunners in a potential buyout of microblogging social site Twitter.

Yahoo! Inc. Research Report

Yahoo is experiencing a sort of renaissance since hiring former Google executive Marissa Mayer as its chief executive six months ago, resulting into both investor and analyst confidence in the stock and company itself. Mayer introduced several changes after assuming the post, including increased employee perks, improvements in Yahoo Mail and Flickr, and "acqui-hires," or the purchase of smaller companies for developer talent and products. Since then, its Microsoft Bing-powered search revenue grew 14 percent year-over-year, while total revenue for the recent quarter increased 2 percent year over year. More changes are expected to come under Mayer, including positioning Yahoo to take advantage of mobile traffic, and highly customized content paired with calibrated advertising and product recommendations.

Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at: [http://www.nationaltradersassociation.org/r/full_research_report/e5d5_YHOO]

AOL, Inc. Research Report

AOL saw its shares rise following its good performance in its Q4 earnings report, posting net income of 41 cents per share, up from 23 cents year over year. The company's surge was due in part by veering away from its core business to focusing more on content-rich sites like TechCrunch, The Huffington Post, and hyperlocal news site Patch to name a few, and enhancing their monetizations within 2012 in the process. The company also cut excessive costs and redundant employees, bought a substantial amount of stock back, and doled out dividend payments of $5.15 per share. Recent news indicate that AOL is close to add another tech-focused website in its fold, electronics review site gdgt. The company's current tech-focused properties include Engadget, TechCrunch, and Joystiq.  The Full Research Report on AOL, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at: [http://www.nationaltradersassociation.org/r/full_research_report/7717_AOL]

Linkedin Corporation Research Report

Professional networker LinkedIn recently finished one of the most successful sessions in the earnings season, soaring 21.27 percent at $162 per share after shredding analyst expectations in its latest earnings report. Revenues grew at a whopping 81 percent at $303.6 million from $167.7 million year-over-year, with an adjusted EPS of 35 cents. The success can be credited to product innovations like Talent Solutions, its growing premium subscriptions and most of all, the recent announcement that it already hit 200 million members. A new service focusing more on job search could increase user base, where users can perform deeper job searches that will allow them to find open positions in their fields by Zip code, industry and function, while employers can also look for prospective hires in a much easier approach.

17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The world is at a tipping point where the technology, the device and global adoption are converging to such a point that we will see an explosion of a world where smartphone devices not only allow us to talk to each other, but allow for communication between everything – serving as a central hub from which we control our world – MediaTek is at the heart of both driving this and allowing the markets to drive this reality forward themselves. The next wave of consumer gadgets is here – smart, connected, and small. If your ambitions are big, so are ours. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jack Hu, D...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures.
