06:32 EDTONCYOncolytics completes enrollment in Reolysin Phase II study
Oncolytics Biotech announced that enrollment has been completed in a randomized Phase II study of Reolysin in patients with previously treated advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer, or NSCLC. The trial is being sponsored and conducted by the NCIC Clinical Trials Group, or NCIC CTG, at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. The primary objective of the trial is to evaluate the effect of Reolysin in combination with standard salvage chemotherapy on the progression free survival of patients with advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer. The secondary objectives are to determine the tolerability and toxicity of the therapeutic combination; to investigate additional potential measures of efficacy, including progression rates at three months, objective response rate and overall survival; and to explore potential molecular factors predictive of response. Although accrual is complete, patient follow-up will continue until planned analyses have been conducted.
06:18 EDTMCDMcDonald's customization kiosks fail to reach drive-thru customers, QSR reports
McDonald's' new "Create Your Taste" kiosks in all its franchises, allowing for customers to customize their orders, may present a problem since they can only be accessed from inside the restaurants, and McDonald's allegedly receives as much as 70% of its sales from the drive-thru, QSR Magazine reports. The expensive new kiosks are expected to cost franchises between $100,000-$150,000 to install, the report says. "At a cost of $100,000-$150,000 per restaurant to implement, it has a limited upside," Richard Adams, a former McDonald's franchisee, told QSR. "I think this is more a stunt to appeal to Wall Street investors instead of being practical for the restaurant operator." Reference Link

10:22 EDTLNKDAfter meeting with CEO, JPMorgan says buy LinkedIn
After meeting with LinkedIn's CEO Jeff Weiner and CFO Steve Sordello, JPMorgan tells investors to buy the stock. Calling the recent decline in the shares a buying opportunity, the firm is upbeat about the outlook for the company's Talent, Marketing, and Sales Navigation units. WHAT'S NEW: Talent has performed well since the company assigned new sales professionals to most of its accounts in the first quarter, JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth quoted LinkedIn as saying. Additionally, the company improved Talent by enabling users to search by key criteria such as hiring volume and overall spending potential, Anmuth believes. Meanwhile, LinkedIn is improving Marketing by replacing display ads with sponsored updates which have higher click through rates and pricing, the analyst added. As a result of this change, Marketing's growth could reaccelerate in 2016, Anmuth contended. Additionally, LinkedIn's recently acquired online learning website, Lynda.com, is "just beginning to ramp," and its Sales Navigation unit is poised to make bigger deals with corporations, Anmuth believes. The analyst kept a $300 price target and Overweight rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On August 13, research firm Stifel called LinkedIn its "best emerging large cap idea." The firm expects positive catalysts to emerge for the company in the second half of 2015. It kept a Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, LinkedIn lost 0.7% to $188.

06:12 EDTMCDStarbucks K-cup momentum is accelerating, says UBS
UBS analyst Keith Siegner says Starbucks (SBUX) is seeing accelerating momentum in the single-serve cup category. The company's K-cup sales increased 36% year-over-year for the four-week period ended August 8, according to Nielsen (NLSN), Siegner tells investors in a research note. Starbucks' K-cup promotion levels ticked up sequentially, but remain well below levels from earlier in the year, the analyst points out. The company's K-Cup portfolio continues to gain share despite increasing price pressure and new market entrants like Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) and McDonald's (MCD), Siegner writes. He keeps a Buy rating on Starbucks with a $63 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 9c to $57.83. Shares of Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) are down 62% year-to-date in part due to the company's slowing sales in the single-serve cup category.
