14:02 EDTAKAMLimelight Networks seeks Supreme Court review of Circuit's Akami decision
Limelight Networks (LLNW) is seeking review by the Supreme Court of the United States of the Federal Circuit's decision to reinstate the 2008 jury verdict that Limelight infringed an Akamai (AKAM) patent. Limelight filed its petition with the Supreme Court earlier. Limelight believes that the Federal Circuit's newly created conduct-attribution standard improperly expands the scope of liability in a fashion that was neither intended by Congress nor consistent with prior legal precedent. As the petition notes, prior to the August 2015 decision to reinstate the jury verdict, the Federal Circuit repeatedly ruled that the district court had correctly determined that Limelight did not infringe Akamai's patent. The court gave no adequate explanation for its sudden reversal. "The court's decision to abandon longstanding, clear and easy-to-follow rules of engagement in favor of an ambiguous 'particular facts presented' standard for infringement liability deprives parties of fair notice concerning the scope of patent protection and ensures a significant increase in needlessly burdensome litigation throughout the technology world," said Bob Lento, Limelight's chief executive officer. "We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will address this issue of extraordinary importance and reverse the Federal Circuit's rootless and erroneous standard. While we continue to pursue all available options, I want to thank our customers, peers in the industry and employees for their support. We remain focused on improving our operational and financial performance and will report our full year results on February 9th."

Detwiler Fenton said TreeHouse (THS) may benefit from Keurig Green Mountain's (GMCR) and Starbucks' (SBUX) focust shift into new products.

08:26 EDTGOOGTwitter in play after executive departures, says Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali believes yesterday's news of several senior executives leaving Twitter (TWTR) puts the company in play and could encourage potential bidders to step forward. Twitter's current valuation and sizeable user base makes it a strategic asset for a number of potential buyers, Squali told investors last night in a research note. Potential suitors on the technology side include Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Microsoft (MSFT), the analyst contends. On the media side, Squali thinks 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA) or Time Warner (TWX) could express interest in Twitter. No concentration of share ownership and no super-voting structure increase the odds of a buyout, Squali argues. The analyst, however, adds that the executive departures are not good news for a company in the midst of a turnaround. He maintains a Buy rating on the microblogging operator with a $45 price target. Twitter closed yesterday down 82c, or 5%, to $17.02..
07:57 EDTVVisa shares 'becoming increasingly attractive,' says Bernstein
After Visa's stock fell 7% so far this year, Bernstein says the stock "is becoming an increasingly attractive, defensive investment in a bearish market." The firm expects the company's EPS to increase 19% through 2020, and says fears about the impact of macro issues on Visa's EPS growth are overdone. Most of the company's EPS growth will come from business model changes and factors that won't be impacted by the macro performance, the firm stated. It keeps a $90 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.
