15:01 EDTTGTWyndham 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.
13:17 EDTTGTTarget to pay $2.8M to resolve EEOC discrimination finding
Target has agreed to pay $2.8M to resolve a Commissioner's charge of discrimination which was investigated in the Minneapolis Area Office of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC. Based on the investigation, EEOC found reasonable cause to believe that three employment assessments formerly used by Target disproportionately screened out applicants for exempt-level professional positions based on race and sex. The tests were not sufficiently job-related and consistent with business necessity, and thus violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, EEOC found. In addition, EEOC found that one of the assessments Target formerly used in its hiring process also violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. The EEOC determined that this particular assessment performed by psychologists on behalf of Target was a pre-employment medical examination. Employers are prohibited by the ADA from subjecting applicants to medical examinations prior to an offer of employment. EEOC found that Target also committed record-keeping violations by failing to maintain records sufficient to assess the impact of its hiring procedures. EEOC's investigation revealed that thousands were adversely affected when Target used these assessments in its hiring process. The monetary settlement will be divided among these individuals as appropriate. Target will pay for a claims administrator to distribute the funds.
11:09 EDTSUNEGoldman says SolarCity attractive after sharp pullback
SolarCity (SCTY) shares are climbing in the down market after Goldman Sachs contended in a note to investors today that the stock is attractive following its recent sharp retreat, The company probably won't be affected by issues that are causing investors to worry about the solar sector, the firm believes. WHAT'S NEW: Noting that SolarCity's stock had tumbled 27% in the last month before today's open, Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee wrote that the shares are being dragged down by worries about financing and cost of capital that are affecting the entire solar sector. However, he contended that these issues are having only a "limited" impact on SolarCity. On August 13, the company successfully sold asset-backed securities and it said that more such sales are likely to occur in the near-term, Lee noted. Meanwhile, SolarCity isn't being affected by the cost of capital increases that other solar companies are experiencing, the analyst reported. Before today's open, the stock was near a two year low, even though SolarCity's fundamentals are still "strong," Lee believes. Additionally, the largest U.S. solar trade show, which is expected to begin on September 14, could boost solar stocks, as it has historically been a catalyst for the sector, the analyst stated. SolarCity may provide guidance about the outlook for its Silevo solar panel manufacturing subsidiary in the second half of 2015, and the guidance could boost the stock, Lee believes. The risk/reward ratio of SolarCity's stock is positive, according to the analyst, who has a Conviction List Buy and $85 price target on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the solar space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunEdison (SUNE), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SolarCity advanced 5.3% to $43.18.
