10:39 EDTLVLTAkamai 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.

07:26 EDTCApple strikes transaction fee discount deals, Bank Innovation says
Apple (AAPL) has reached deals with American Express (AXP), JPMorgan (JPM), Citigroup (C), Capital One (COF), and Bank of America (BAC) to lower card transaction fees for its soon to be launched payments venture, said Bank Innovations, citing an earlier report from Tom Noyes and confirmation by its own sources. Apple has both convinced them to consider its transactions as “card present,” which carries a lower discount rate, and has also managed to bump down the actual “card present” rate by 15 to 25 basis points, according to people with knowledge of the matter, the report noted.

06:40 EDTC, USBAgencies finalize liquidity rule for large banks
The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency finalized a rule yesterday that they said would strengthen the liquidity positions of large financial institutions. The rule will for the first time create a standardized minimum liquidity requirement for large and internationally active banking organizations., according to the agencies. Each institution will be required to hold high quality, liquid assets, or HQLA, such as central bank reserves and government and corporate debt that can be converted easily and quickly into cash in an amount equal to or greater than its projected cash outflows minus its projected cash inflows during a 30-day stress period, the agencies explained. The ratio of the firm’s liquid assets to its projected net cash outflow is its “liquidity coverage ratio,” or LCR, they said. The LCR will apply to all banking organizations with $250B or more in total consolidated assets or $10B or more in on-balance sheet foreign exposure and to these banking organizations’ subsidiary depository institutions that have assets of $10B or more, the agencies reported. The rule also will apply a less stringent, modified LCR to bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies that do not meet these thresholds, but have $50B or more in total assets. Bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies with substantial insurance or commercial operations are not covered by the final rule. The final rule is largely identical to the proposed rule, with a few key adjustments in response to comments from the public, the agencies stated. Those adjustments include changes to the range of corporate debt and equity securities included in HQLA, a phasing-in of daily calculation requirements, a revised approach to address maturity mismatch during a 30-day period, and changes in the stress period, calculation frequency, and implementation timeline for the bank holding companies and savings and loan companies subject to the modified LCR. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).
