Delta (DAL) is rolling out a new program that will see the company reimbursing its corporate clients $1,000-$250,000 if its on-time arrival and flight completion rates fall behind that of American Airlines (AAL) or United (UAL), reports Bloomberg. "They can't replicate our performance," Delta global sales VP Bob Somers told the publication.

17:13 EDTSNE'Compton' leads again as 'We Are Your Friends' stumbles at box office
Hip hop biopic "Straight Outta Compton" continued its domestic box office dominance while Christian drama "War Room" outpaced analyst estimates and electronic dance flick "We Are Your Friends" fizzled. U.S. WEEKEND LEADER: Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) subsidiary Universal's "Straight Outta Compton" grossed $13.2M domestically for the weekend of August 30, securing the top box office spot for a third consecutive week. In a record-breaking performance for musical biopics, the gangster rap film has earned $134.1M in the U.S. since opening earlier this month. Though Warner Bros.' (TWX) "We Are Your Friends" was predicted to challenge "Compton" with sales ranging $8M-$10M, the Zac Efron-led electronic music film flopped at just $1.8M. BOX OFFICE RUNNERS-UP: Produced with an estimated budget of $3M, Sony's (SNE) faith-based drama "War Room" debuted at $11M against expectations for $5M-$8.5M after leading in advance ticket sales. Viacom (VIA, VIAB) subsidiary Paramount's "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation" relinquished its grip on second place with an $8.3M gross for the weekend, while Weinstein Company's action thriller "No Escape" opened in fourth place at $8.29M. "Sinister 2" from Comcast subsidiary Focus Features rounded out this weekend's Top 5 at $4.7M.

Shares of American Airlines (AAL), Coach (COH), PACCAR (PCAR), and CA Technologies (CA) not only look cheap but pay dividends, thereby rewarding patient investors willing to wait for rebounds, Barron's contends in a feature article. All four firms are generating "healthy" return on capital, suggesting operations are stronger than traders believe, Barron's argues. Reference Link

15:01 EDTAALWyndham slips after FTC given go-ahead for data breach lawsuit
Shares of Wyndham (WYN) have slipped in afternoon trading after an appeals court ruled that the FTC can sue the company over its allegedly poor cybersecurity practices. WHAT'S NEW: According to a Reuters report of court proceedings, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia has ruled that the FTC may proceed with its lawsuit against Wyndham over data breaches in 2008 and 2009, saying the hotel company failed to take reasonable steps to protect customer information. Wyndham's allegedly lackluster data protection policies constitute "unfair and deceptive trade practices," granting the Federal Trade Commission authority to step in, said Judge Thomas Ambro. FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez commented, "It is not only appropriate, but critical, that the FTC has the ability to take action on behalf of consumers when companies fail to take reasonable steps to secure sensitive consumer information," according to the report. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Today's ruling comes in the wake of numerous high-profile "hack attacks," with American Airlines (AAL), Anthem (ANTM), United Airlines (UAL) and Target (TGT) all reporting digital security breaches in recent years. Though no final verdict has been reached in the case between the FTC and Wyndham, Judge Ambro may have established the beginnings of a legal precedent potentially allowing the Commission to sue companies for not going far enough to protect consumer data and Chairwoman Ramirez appeared to share that broader tone. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Wyndham are down about 4% in intraday trading. Cybersecurity firms FireEye (FEYE) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) are down roughly 2% and 2.7% for the afternoon.
