18:26 EDTFBFacebook tests technology to prevent sharing of stolen videos
In a company blog post published Thursday, Facebook stated, "We've heard from some of our content partners that third parties too frequently misuse their content on Facebook. For instance, publishers have told us that their videos are sometimes uploaded directly to Facebook without their permission. This practice has been called 'freebooting,' and it's not fair... To address this, we have been exploring ways to enhance our rights management tools to better empower creators to control how their videos are shared on Facebook... We're working with [audio fingerprinting technology] Audible Magic to enhance the way that system works with Facebook, including improving the intake of content intended to be blocked from our platform. And we're making improvements to our existing procedures so that infringing content can be reported and removed more efficiently, and to keep repeat infringers off our service... [However,] some publishers with particular needs, including creators whose videos have gone viral, have been asking for more tools. To this end, we have been building new video matching technology that will be available to a subset of creators. This technology is tailored to our platform, and will allow these creators to identify matches of their videos on Facebook across Pages, profiles, groups, and geographies. Our matching tool will evaluate millions of video uploads quickly and accurately, and when matches are surfaced, publishers will be able to report them to us for removal. We will soon begin testing the beta version of this matching technology with a small group of partners, including media companies, multi-channel networks and individual video creators."

10:12 EDTFBGoogle climbs after Goldman upgrade, Cantor endorsement
The shares of Google (GOOG, GOOGL) are rallying after Goldman Sachs upgraded the search giant's stock and Cantor Fitzgerald named the stock as one of the top five Internet names to buy amid the market's recent selloff. WHAT'S NEW: Google is in the early innings of a long-term margin expansion process as the search giant intensifies its focus on cost cutting, Goldman analyst Heather Bellini wrote in a note to investors today. Moreover, after conducting checks, Bellini is more upbeat on the company's ability to increase its monetization of YouTube and mobile search. The analyst, who believes that cost cutting combined with the increased monetization is starting to move the needle for the company, hiked her price target on Google's Class A stock to $800 from $660, upgraded the stock and added the shares to Goldman's Americas Conviction List. Meanwhile, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali named Google as one of his top five Internet stocks to buy amid the market's recent volatility. Google is "relatively resilient," given its 91% share of the global search market as of July and its $61B of net cash as of the end of Q2, the analyst believes. Moreover, the company has virtually no exposure to China and its new corporate structure should improve its transparency, Squali believes. He kept a $720 price target and Buy rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The other four companies on Squali's list of top Internet stocks are Amazon (AMZN), Priceline (PCLN), Facebook (FB), and Alibaba (BABA). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Google's Class A shares rose 4.4% to $640 and its Class C shares advanced nearly 5% to $610.

07:25 EDTFBCantor names top five Internet names to buy during selloff
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali said he "won't attempt to call the bottom" but identified his top five Internet and Media names to buy amid the recent market volatility, all of which have dominance in their respective markets, higher than peer level growth and valuations that he views as reasonable. Squali, who noted that he views concerns over macro risks and China to be overblown, called out Google (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN), Priceline (PCLN), Facebook (FB) and Alibaba (BABA) as having an attractive risk/reward given the selloff in recent sessions. The firm has Buy ratings on all five of the stocks named above.
