Note to Editors: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by the Equity News Circuit

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 3, 2013) - Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), Yelp, Inc. (NYSE: YELP), LinkedIn Corporation (NYSE: LNKD), AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVEO).

Facebook, Inc. (FB) saw shares advancing 5.61% or $1.54 per share to close at $28.97 on volume of 102,759,853 shares traded during Thursday's trading session. The social networking company announced its latest quarterly results, reporting revenues just under $1.5 billion. The company showed a profit of nearly $220 million for the quarter but this fell short of analysts' expectations. CEO Mark Zuckerberg blamed the missed target on higher costs. Company spending is up 60 percent this quarter over the previous one due to hiring and new developments, but the investments seem to be paying off with Facebook's mobile strategy. It now has more than 750 million active mobile users and mobile advertising accounts for 30 percent of Facebook's ad sales. Will shares of Facebook continue to rise following the company's latest earnings announcement as investors look toward continued growth ahead?

Yelp, Inc. (YELP) saw shares rising 27.35% to close yesterday's trading session at $32.22 on volume of 10,129,818 shares traded.

Yelp also issued a forecast for second-quarter sales that may exceed analysts' projections.

AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (AVEO) saw shares declining 49.62% or $2.61 per share to close yesterday at $2.65 on volume of 15,226,922 shares traded. The therapeutics company failed to win the backing of U.S. regulatory advisers for its lead product candidate, a kidney cancer drug, after the panelists questioned whether it was as effective as existing treatments. Members of the Food and Drug Administration advisory panel expressed concerns that a final-stage trial showed Aveo's tivozanib may reduce survival compared with Bayer AG and Onyx Pharmaceuticals Nexavar. Aveo was criticized for relying on a single-final phase clinical trial and the panel said the company should conduct another study to better assess the benefits. The FDA is scheduled to decide by July 28 whether to approve tivozanib, a drug that may generate sales of $205 million in 2016 for Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Aveo, according to the average of three analysts' estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Will shares of Aveo recover following this negative advisory panel decision leading up to the FDA's final ruling?
