10:39 EDTAKAMAkamai seen as 'Google of Internet infrastructure' by UBS
Shares of Akamai (AKAM) are advancing after UBS began coverage of the stock with a positive view, calling the company "the Google of Internet Infrastructure." Akamai provides infrastructure for delivering content over the Internet. WHAT'S NEW: UBS analyst Steven Milunovich initiated coverage of Akamai with a Buy rating in a note to investors today. Like Google (GOOG), Akamai relies on sophisticated algorithms, the analyst stated. Increased demand for Internet media delivery could cause the Internet content delivery sector to perform better than expected, Milunovich believes. Akamai's strong reliability is difficult to match, which should enable it to fend off competition in the space, according to the analyst. Moreover, Milunovich is upbeat on the company's new security and cloud initiatives. He set a $70 price target on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the Internet content delivery space include Limelight Networks (LLNW) and Level 3 (LVLT). PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Akamai rose nearly 1% to $60.91.

09:33 EDTMKTXMarketAxess announces August monthly trading volume $52.2B
MarketAxess Holdings announced total monthly trading volume for August of $52.2B, consisting of $31.2B in U.S. high-grade volume, $15.9B in other credit volume, and $5.1B in liquid products volume. For the month of August, estimated FINRA reported U.S. high-grade TRACE volume was $250.8B, consisting of $223B in registered securities and $27.8B in 144A securities. As discussed on the earnings call on July 23, MarketAxess believes that certain broker-dealers initiated reporting of affiliate back-to-back trades to FINRA in April. The company believes that this double counting of trades inflated the TRACE reported volume by approximately 3.7% for August and, accordingly, reduced the company's estimated U.S. high-grade market share by approximately 0.5%. MarketAxess is providing both the reported and the adjusted estimated U.S. high-grade TRACE volumes on our website. The company believes that adjusted estimated volumes provides a more accurate comparison to prior period reporting and, in the case of affiliate back-to-back trades, the adjusted volumes assumes a base level of such double-reported trades consistent with prior periods. FINRA has not yet made available any historical 144A data for periods prior to July 1.

In advance of the Barclays Back-to-School Consumer Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, PepsiCo stated that, consistent with its previous guidance for FY14, PepsiCo expects 8% core constant currency EPS growth in FY14 versus its FY13 core EPS of $4.37.

Based on the current foreign exchange market consensus, PepsiCo currently expects foreign exchange translation to have an unfavorable impact of approximately 3 percentage points on its full-year net revenue growth in 2014.
