Comcast (CMCSA) Chief Network Officer John Schanz said in an interview that the company is currently testing a new content delivery service and expects to roll it out broadly if all goes well, according to The Information. Content delivery network operators, such as Akamai (AKAM) and Level 3 Communications (LVLT), could be pressured by Comcast's new service, which could also have big implications for streaming video providers like Netflix (NFLX) and security software providers like Symantec (SYMC), according to the report.

10:57 EDTNFLXT-Mobile promotion gives Netflix analyst greater confidence
UBS raised its price target on Netflix (NFLX) to $143 from $116, saying that its confidence in the company's outlook has improved following a promotion undertaken by T-Mobile (TMUS). WHAT'S NEW: T-Mobile recently began offering one free year of Netflix to consumers who switch to its wireless service, UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson wrote in a note to investors today. Mitchelson said that the promotion increases his confidence in the outlook for Netflix's U.S. business. Moreover, he believes that Netflix could "become a standard promotional tool" for wired and wireless broadband providers going forward. Although Netflix's stock "looks very expensive" in the near-term, the company's long-term opportunity is "extraordinary," given the potential size of the global streaming market, the analyst stated. Mitchelson's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. He raised his price target on the name to $143 from $116 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On August 10, research firm Stifel raised its price target on Netflix to $143 from $128, saying that the company's U.S. subscriber base can reach 80M by 2024, above the midpoint of its guidance. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Netflix fell 1% to $122.

06:01 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $143 from $116 at UBS
UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson raised his price target for Netflix (NFLX) shares to $143 after increasing his longer term revenue assumptions. The streaming service closed yesterday down $1.31 to $124.05. Mitchelson upped his 2020-2026 revenue estimates to reflect his belief that Netflix will successfully monetize its streaming platform beyond just monthly subscription fees, such as bundling and promoting third party services. He has increased confidence in the company's U.S. growth outlook after T-Mobile (TMUS) just launched a promotion for its wireless service that included one free year of Netflix. As competition among broadband providers intensifies, Netflix's inexpensive monthly streaming service could become one of the standard promotional tools, Mitchelson tells investors in a research note. The analyst's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. Mitchelson keeps a Buy rating on Netflix.

06:50 EDTAKAMAkamai reports Q2 DDoS attack traffic up 7% vs. Q1
Akamai Technologies announced the availability of the Q2 State of the Internet - Security Report. For the past three quarters, there has been a doubling in the number of DDoS attacks year over year. And while attackers favored less powerful but longer duration attacks this quarter, the number of dangerous mega attacks continues to increase. In Q2, there were 12 attacks peaking at more than 100 Gigabits per second, or Gbps, and five attacks peaking at more than 50 Million packets per second, or Mpps. Very few organizations have the capacity to withstand such attacks on their own. The largest DDoS attack of Q2 measured more than 240 gigabits per second, or Gbps, and persisted for more than 13 hours. Peak bandwidth is typically constrained to a one to two hour window. Q2 also saw one of the highest packet rate attacks ever recorded across the Prolexic Routed network, which peaked at 214 Mpps. That attack volume is capable of taking out tier 1 routers, such as those used by Internet service providers, or ISPs. DDoS attack activity set a new record in Q2 , increasing 132% compared to Q2 of 2014 and increasing 7% compared to Q1. Average peak attack bandwidth and volume increased slightly in Q2 compared to Q1, but remained significantly lower than the peak averages observed in Q2 of 2014. SYN and Simple Service Discovery Protocol, or SSDP, were the most common DDoS attack vectors this quarter - each accounting for approximately 16% of DDoS attack traffic. The proliferation of unsecured home-based, Internet-connected devices using the Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP, Protocol continues to make them attractive for use as SSDP reflectors. Practically unseen a year ago, SSDP attacks have been one of the top attack vectors for the past three quarters. SYN floods have continued to be one of the most common vectors in all volumetric attacks, dating back to the first edition of the security reports in Q3 of 2011. Online gaming has remained the most targeted industry since Q2 of 2014, consistently being targeted in about 35% of DDoS attacks. China has remained the top source of non-spoofed attack traffic for the past two quarters, and has been among the top three source countries since the very first report was issued in Q3 of 2011.
