15:01 EDTPANWWyndham slips after FTC given go-ahead for data breach lawsuit
Shares of Wyndham (WYN) have slipped in afternoon trading after an appeals court ruled that the FTC can sue the company over its allegedly poor cybersecurity practices. WHAT'S NEW: According to a Reuters report of court proceedings, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia has ruled that the FTC may proceed with its lawsuit against Wyndham over data breaches in 2008 and 2009, saying the hotel company failed to take reasonable steps to protect customer information. Wyndham's allegedly lackluster data protection policies constitute "unfair and deceptive trade practices," granting the Federal Trade Commission authority to step in, said Judge Thomas Ambro. FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez commented, "It is not only appropriate, but critical, that the FTC has the ability to take action on behalf of consumers when companies fail to take reasonable steps to secure sensitive consumer information," according to the report. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Today's ruling comes in the wake of numerous high-profile "hack attacks," with American Airlines (AAL), Anthem (ANTM), United Airlines (UAL) and Target (TGT) all reporting digital security breaches in recent years. Though no final verdict has been reached in the case between the FTC and Wyndham, Judge Ambro may have established the beginnings of a legal precedent potentially allowing the Commission to sue companies for not going far enough to protect consumer data and Chairwoman Ramirez appeared to share that broader tone. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Wyndham are down about 4% in intraday trading. Cybersecurity firms FireEye (FEYE) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) are down roughly 2% and 2.7% for the afternoon.

09:51 EDTPANWFireEye called top-tier security vendor in new upgrade
Shares of FireEye (FEYE) are getting a boost after Imperial Capital highlighted the company's "significant progress" when upgrading its rating on the name. California-based FireEye is a provider of cybersecurity solutions. UPGRADE: Imperial Capital analyst Michael Kim upgraded FireEye to Outperform from In-Line this morning in a note to investors, citing a favorable risk/reward at current share levels. The stock trades at the lower valuation end of similar high-growth security vendors, Kim tells investors in a research note. He believes FireEye is making "significant progress" on driving higher sales productivity and margin expansion. Ramping global adoption of the company's platform has made FireEye a top-tier security vendor, Kim argues. He raised his price target for shares to $55 from $45.50. NOT ALONE: Kim is not alone in recommending stocks in the cybersecurity space. Analysts at Piper Jaffray and Wells Fargo last week highlighted security names that they view as attractive investments. CyberArk Software (CYBR), Barracuda Networks (CUDA) and Fortinet (FTNT) were among the stocks recommended by the firms. Piper Jaffray analyst Andrew Nowinski said the recent pullback in the sector is an attractive buying opportunity. Stocks with the most attractive valuations include Barracuda, CyberArk, Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks (PANW), he told investors last week. Wells Fargo analyst Gray Powell last week upgraded Israel-based CyberArk to Outperform from Market Perform saying the company's billings growth as well as its sales and marketing efficiencies are "exceeding peers by a wide margin. HACKS CONTINUE: High-profile cyber attacks continue with the Internal Revenue Service yesterday raising the number of accounts that were compromised in a data breach earlier this year. In May, the IRS revealed that 114,000 tax accounts through its "Get Transcript" application were exposed to thieves. Yesterday, the agency said a recent review revealed approximately 220,000 additional tax accounts may have been breached, bringing the total number of victims up to 334,000. Shares of FireEye are up 56c to $44.21 in early trading. CyberArk is up 13c to $60.06 while Proofpoint (PFPT), a company focused on securing email communication, is up 16c to $65.06.
