06:35 EDTBCSCiti plans to rebuild equities franchise, Reuters reports
Citigroup (C) is planning to rebuild its equities franchise in an effort to capitalize on a retrenchment by rivals in the face of new rules created to make the financial system less risky, Reuters reports, citing people familiar with the bank's plans. It may be tough to overcome leaders such as Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), and JPMorgan Chase (JPM), that have long dominated the sector, the report says. Citi is aiming to profit from a retreat of rivals slow to adapt new rules forcing banks to keep more capital, the report says. Deutsche Bank (DB), Credit Suisse (CS), and Barclays (BCS) are among others rebuilding their investment banking businesses, the report adds. Reference Link

05:44 EDTBIDUBaidu upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Cynthia Meng upgraded Baidu to Buy saying concerns around search ad spending are overdone. Recent channel checks with top ad agents indicated "strong traction" for performance-based ads, with any cuts to ad budgets being mostly offset by more allocation toward key word search from display ads, Meng tells investors in a research note. At current levels, Meng believes Baidu shares have largely priced in reduced earnings growth expectations. She keeps a price target of $210 for the stock. The Chinese search giant closed Friday up 7c to $152.13.

09:02 EDTLLLSparton, L-3 reach settlement agreement; Sparton to pay L-3 $2.5M
Sparton Corporation (SPA) has signed a settlement agreement to pay L-3 Communications (LLL) $2.5M. On September 24, 2013, L-3 Communications Corporation, doing business as L-3 Linkabit, filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division, against Sparton Corporation and Sparton Electronics. On August 20, 2015, Sparton and L-3 signed a mutual accord resolving the dispute. The agreement requires payment from Sparton to L-3 on or before October 1, 2015 in consideration for dismissal of the litigation. Neither party admitted to any mistakes, damage or fault. "This settlement has resulted in a positive business outcome between our two companies," stated Cary Wood, President & CEO of Sparton. "Our on-going relationship with L-3 remains solid and we expect to continue to be partners well into the future. The new business development funnel continues to be strong overall and includes a number of key L-3 programs currently in the quote phase. With fiscal 2015's adjusted earnings per share to be announced on September 8, 2015 in-line with analyst consensus, it allows us to enter fiscal 2016 with a clean slate by having this dispute and the Fenwal rebalancing activities well behind us, setting us up for what we expect to be a successful fiscal 2016 on all fronts."
