09:08 EDTLMTUS Army and Javeline JV conducts successful live-fire tests
The U.S. Army and the Javelin Joint Venture, comprising Raytheon (RTN) and Lockheed Martin (LMT), recently conducted successful live-fire Javelin missile engagements against tank targets from different launcher and platform configurations as part of a demonstration to current foreign military sales users. Each of the three Javelin missiles used during the tests at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, was fired from a different launcher or platform from a Command Launch Unit; from a vehicle using a Remote Weapon Station; and from the U.S. Army's recently deployed Containerized Weapon System, also using a RWS. The CLU-launched missile hit a target at 4,000 meters, while the vehicle-launched and CWS-launched missiles hit targets positioned at 1,100 meters and 700 meters, respectively.

07:51 EDTGOOGTwitter downgraded to Neutral at MKM Partners on stalled user growth
As previously reported, MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Buy, noting that growth in its user base is stalling out and he sees no catalyst for sentiment to improve in the next two quarters, besides a possible bid from Google (GOOG). Sanderson thinks the company's CEO search brings with it some uncertainty and likely delays user experience improvements, unless Jack Dorsey takes over full-time, but that would require him to give up his CEO post at Square. The firm lowered its estimates on Twitter and cut its price target on the shares to $39 from $57.

06:36 EDTWMTWal-Mart accused of using charity to increase expansion, NYT reports
Several community and labor organizations are accusing Wal-Mart of inappropriately using its nonprofit Wal-Mart Foundation to reduce local opposition to expansion efforts in places such as Washington, Boston, Los Angeles, and New York, the New York Times reports. The group of organizations claimed in a complaint with the IRS that the Wal-Mart Foundation violated the terms of its tax-exempt status by targeting millions of dollars in donations that would directly benefit the retailer, the report says. The complaint alleges that the foundation donated over $200,000 to organizations in Los Angeles in 2008 and 2009, but raised that figure to $1.4M in 2011, right as the company planned to open a store in that area. When the store was opened in 2013, donations fell to roughly $230,000, the report says. In a statement, the New York Times reports, Wal-Mart spokesman Kevin Gardner said that the Wal-Mart Foundation took tax code and regulations "very seriously" and that the allegations had no merit.

06:31 EDTFBBelgian Privacy Commission adopts first recommendation of principle on Facebook
The Belgian Privacy Commission said in a statement that on May 13 it adopted a first recommendation of principle on Facebook. "It has observed that Facebook 'processes' the personal data of its members, users as well as of all internet users who come into contact with Facebook. Facebook does this secretively: no consent is asked for this 'tracking and tracing' and the use of cookies. No targeted information is provided. The available information is vague and authorizes just about anything. Following the introduction of new worldwide terms of use by Facebook, a number of European privacy commissions queried Facebook, which was particularly sparing with precise answers and also refused to comply with the request to postpone the entry into force of the new terms of use. Facebook did not accept that it was bound by the national privacy legislation of Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. It rejected the competence of those countries' supervisory authorities for privacy. Facebook only accepts supervision by the Irish privacy commission and the application of Irish law.After months of unsuccessful correspondence and fruitlessly exchanging ideas, the Belgian Privacy Commission has now adopted a first recommendation. This document establishes first of all that the Belgian Privacy Commission is competent and that Belgian law also applies to Facebook, simply because any national supervisory authority is obliged to ensure privacy protection for its citizens. And Belgian law also applies because the Facebook Group has an actual establishment in Brussels, Belgium. At the request of the Belgian Privacy Commission the inter-university research center EMSOC/SPION conducted a detailed study into the way in which Facebook deals with its members' personal data. And that of citizens who do not use Facebook or who explicitly opted out of its service.The research results are disconcerting. Facebook disregards European and Belgian privacy legislation in several ways. In 10 chapters an equal amount of issues have been uncovered. It is the Belgian Privacy Commission's ambition to thoroughly look into these issues. Until today, the eighth chapter - 'tracking trough social plug-ins' - has been the focus of attention, because it does not only impact Facebook users but also virtually every Internet user in Belgium and Europe. Up to this day Facebook refuses to recognize the application of Belgian legislation nor the Belgian Privacy Commission. Until now it has always contested the findings of the EMSOC/SPION research report, but it has not provided concrete facts repudiating them. To the contrary: Facebook recognizes that errors, 'BUGS' have been uncovered." Reference Link

Guillaume Faury, the president of Airbus Helicopters (EADSY), is said to be watching United Technologies' (UTX) plan to offload its Sikorsky unit, though Airbus has not committed to making a bid for its rival, The Wall Street Journal reports. United Tech said yesterday that it will sell or spin off Sikorsky, which makes Black Hawk helicopters, within the next two months. Sources say that in addition to Airbus potentially being interested in Sikorsky, there is also interest coming from Lockheed Martin (LMT), Boeing (BA) and Textron (TXT). Reference Link
