Yandex Climbs to Five-Week High on Bank of America’s Buy Rating

July 05, 2012

Yandex NV (YNDX:US), Russia’s most-used Internet search engine, jumped to the highest level in five weeks in New York after Bank of America Corp. recommended investors buy the stock.

The Hague, Netherlands-based company that is listed on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange, climbed 3.4 percent to $19.91 by 12:07 p.m. in New York, heading to the highest level since May 31.

Bank of America revised its earlier neutral recommendation on Yandex stock, according to an e-mailed report today.

“We expect strong second-quarter 2012 numbers from Yandex at the end of July -- giving investors some comfort on margins and top-line growth,” Mariya Kahn, an analyst at Bank of America in Singapore, wrote in the report.
