The show is scheduled to appear on TV and other media channels in 2016, the report adds. Reference Link

07:31 EDTSIMOSilicon Motion downgraded to Underperform from Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill downgraded Silicon Motion two notches to Underperform from Buy and lowered its price target to $19 from $37 on shares. The firm is more cautious on the memory chip sector given new developments of SK Group's "significantly higher capex budget" and Micron's unexpected FY16 capex hike. BofA/Merrill said excess capacity is now a concern and cut long-term earnings estimates for most memory chip stocks.
06:50 EDTAKAMAkamai reports Q2 DDoS attack traffic up 7% vs. Q1
Akamai Technologies announced the availability of the Q2 State of the Internet - Security Report. For the past three quarters, there has been a doubling in the number of DDoS attacks year over year. And while attackers favored less powerful but longer duration attacks this quarter, the number of dangerous mega attacks continues to increase. In Q2, there were 12 attacks peaking at more than 100 Gigabits per second, or Gbps, and five attacks peaking at more than 50 Million packets per second, or Mpps. Very few organizations have the capacity to withstand such attacks on their own. The largest DDoS attack of Q2 measured more than 240 gigabits per second, or Gbps, and persisted for more than 13 hours. Peak bandwidth is typically constrained to a one to two hour window. Q2 also saw one of the highest packet rate attacks ever recorded across the Prolexic Routed network, which peaked at 214 Mpps. That attack volume is capable of taking out tier 1 routers, such as those used by Internet service providers, or ISPs. DDoS attack activity set a new record in Q2 , increasing 132% compared to Q2 of 2014 and increasing 7% compared to Q1. Average peak attack bandwidth and volume increased slightly in Q2 compared to Q1, but remained significantly lower than the peak averages observed in Q2 of 2014. SYN and Simple Service Discovery Protocol, or SSDP, were the most common DDoS attack vectors this quarter - each accounting for approximately 16% of DDoS attack traffic. The proliferation of unsecured home-based, Internet-connected devices using the Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP, Protocol continues to make them attractive for use as SSDP reflectors. Practically unseen a year ago, SSDP attacks have been one of the top attack vectors for the past three quarters. SYN floods have continued to be one of the most common vectors in all volumetric attacks, dating back to the first edition of the security reports in Q3 of 2011. Online gaming has remained the most targeted industry since Q2 of 2014, consistently being targeted in about 35% of DDoS attacks. China has remained the top source of non-spoofed attack traffic for the past two quarters, and has been among the top three source countries since the very first report was issued in Q3 of 2011.

13:11 EDTYELPAlibaba unlikely to make competing offer for zulily, say Baird
zulily (ZU) shareholder Alibaba (BABA) is unlikely to make a competing takeover bid for the online retailer, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors in a research note. Alibaba, which upped its stake in zulily to 9% in May, likely views the company as an investment rather than a vehicle to enter the U.S. market, Sebastian argues. This morning, Liberty Interactive (QVCA) announced it had reached an agreement to acquire zulily for $18.75 per share or $2.4B. The analyst sees strategic benefits from the deal. Increased takeover activity in the small-cap internet space could support the valuations of the remaining independents, including ChannelAdvisor (ECOM), Yelp (YELP), Groupon (GRPN), Angie's List (ANGI) and RetailMeNot (SALE), Sebastian writes. Shares of zulily are soaring 47% to $18.50 following the takeover agreement.

JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty believes Apple's (AAPL) delay of its live TV service until 2016 is consistent with Akamai's (AKAM) 2015 guidance and management's commentary during the most recent earnings call. Akamai's investments to support a large-scale over-the-top build-out are likely related to Apple's live TV offering, Auty tells investors. He keeps an Overweight rating on Akamai.
