Qualcomm provided the following statement: "We were informed that the European Commission has taken the procedural step of 'initiating proceedings' against Qualcomm with regard to the two ongoing investigations into Qualcomm's sale of chipsets for mobile devices. This step allows investigators to gather additional facts, but it represents neither an expression by the Commission on the merits of the case nor an accusation against the company. While we were disappointed to hear this, we have been cooperating and will continue to cooperate with the Commission, and we continue to believe that any concerns are without merit."

08:32 EDTWMSAdvanced Drainage announces delay in filing FY15 10-K
Advanced Drainage Systems has delayed the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015 beyond the July 14, 2015 extended filing date. As previously disclosed by the company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on June 30, 2015, the company is reviewing methodologies utilized in its year-end inventory costing analysis and the related impact on the company’s fiscal year 2015 financial statements. This review is ongoing, and is primarily due to the need to assess the impact of highly volatile raw material costs during the company’s fiscal 2015 fourth quarter. Although the company’s independent public accounting firm is performing audit testing procedures for such items, the company anticipates that the effect of this review will be a reduction of year-end inventory values for fiscal year 2015 as compared to previously reported amounts, and a related increase in cost of sales. The company anticipates these adjustments will have a positive impact on cost of sales in fiscal year 2016. The company intends to make any necessary adjustments to its previously issued earnings release for the fourth-quarter and full fiscal year 2015 in light of the above concurrent with the filing of its Form 10-K. As part of the review process, the company is now also conducting a review of its accounting treatment for its transportation and equipment leasing program. The company’s transportation and equipment leases have historically been recorded as operating leases and the company is now in the process of re-evaluating whether it is necessary to record such leases as capital leases. The company is working diligently to conclude its review and analysis of the items described above as well as the company’s journal entry control processes as previously disclosed, and will announce its anticipated timing via press release once known.

In its "Digital Advertising & Social Intelligence Report" for Q2, Adobe (ADBE) wrote that Facebook's (FB) display ad changes doubled its click-through-rates, or CTRs, year-over-year in the quarter, while Google's (GOOG) display targeting changes reduced its number of ads seen by 22% compared to the prior year and its CTRs were up "only" 24% compared to the same period of last year. The report also contends that the "Mobilegeddon" fears regarding Google's changes to favor mobile friendly sites came true, noting that sites with low mobile engagement saw up to a 10% decrease in organic traffic after the changes were made by the search giant.
