12:52 EDTAKAMAkamai retreats after Wells cuts rating on traffic trends
Shares of Akamai (AKAM) are falling after Wells Fargo downgraded the stock to Market Perform from Outperform, saying its research indicates the company's traffic has been moderating in recent weeks. Akamai provides services for the delivery of content over the Internet. WHAT'S NEW: The amount of video and audio streaming being handled by Akamai has slowed during the first two weeks of October when compared with the third quarter, Wells Fargo wrote in a note to investors today. Although Akamai's revenue growth does not correlate directly with changes in the traffic it handles, traffic trends have provided indications about the direction of the company's revenue growth in the past, the firm stated. Additionally, Akamai is facing tough comparisons this quarter, and its international business will be hurt by the strong dollar, the firm contended. Wells predicted the company's 2014 and 2015 earnings would miss expectations and cut its price target range on the name to $57-$61 from $70-$75. OTHERS TO WATCH: Limelight Networks (LLNW) and Level 3 Communications (LVLT) also provide Internet content delivery services. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Akamai fell 3% to $53.

06:39 EDTAKAMAkamai warns of UPnP devices used in DDoS attacks
Akamai Technologies released, through the company's Prolexic Security Engineering & Response Team, or PLXsert, a new cybersecurity threat advisory. The advisory alerts the security community, device vendors, Internet service providers and enterprises to the risk of massive distributed denial of service, or DDoS, attacks involving Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP, devices. PLXsert has observed the use of a new reflection and amplification DDoS attack that deliberately misuses communications protocols that come enabled on millions of home and office devices, including routers, media servers, web cams, smart TVs and printers. The protocols allow devices to discover each other on a network, establish communication and coordinate activities. DDoS attackers have been abusing these protocols on Internet-exposed devices to launch attacks that generate floods of traffic and cause website and network outages at enterprise targets.

08:13 EDTVZCorvex says Crown Castle, Verizon deal would 'diversify' revenues
Corvex said, "A Verizon (VZ) tower deal would diversify Crown Castle's (CCI) revenues and deepen the company's relationship with arguably the U.S.'s strongest wireless company and operator of the country's most robust network. As the largest and most-focused U.S. tower operator and the largest operator of legacy carrier portfolios, Crown Castle could be the best strategic acquirer of Verizon's tower assets. That does not mean the company will be best positioned financially to provide the highest and best bid though. Based on recent press articles, the potential sale price for the Verizon towers could be approximately $6B. However, we strongly believe that the company should not issue any equity at recent prices, and certainly not to acquire more tower assets at premium prices when Crown Castle continues to trade at a material discount to both transaction multiples and publicly traded peers."

Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD), which has a history of growth via acquisition and has been speculated to be targeting peer SABMiller (SBMRY), has also studied whether a merger with PepsiCo (PEP) makes sense, according to Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter.

The report also noted that Albert Fried views Monster Beverage (MNST) and Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) as other suitable targets for AB InBev. Reference Link
