08:38 EDTAAPLApple Watch shipments total 3.6M in Q2, IDC says
Apple (AAPL) reached the number two spot in the global wearables market, having shipped a total of 3.6M units of its Apple Watch in Q2, just 800,000 units behind Fitbit's (FIT) 4.4M units, according to the International Data Corporation's Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker. Total shipment volume for the quarter came to 18.1M units, up 223.2% from the 5.6M units shipped in 2Q14. "Anytime Apple enters a new market, not only does it draw attention to itself, but to the market as a whole," noted Ramon Llamas, Research Manager for IDC's Wearables team. "Its participation benefits multiple players and platforms within the wearables ecosystem, and ultimately drives total volumes higher. Apple also forces other vendors - especially those that have been part of this market for multiple quarters - to re-evaluate their products and experiences. Fairly or not, Apple will become the stick against which other wearables are measured, and competing vendors need to stay current or ahead of Apple. Now that Apple is officially a part of the wearables market, everyone will be watching to see what other wearable devices it decides to launch, such as smart glasses or hearables." Xiaomi shipped 3.1M wearable units in Q2, while Garmin (GRMN) shipped 700,000 units and Samsung (SSNLF) shipped 600,000.

11:12 EDTMSFTNTT Communications launches Multi-Cloud Connect service
Earlier today, NTT Communications Corporation, the ICT solutions and international communications business within NTT (NTT), announced the launch of Multi-Cloud Connect - an optional feature on NTT Com's Arcstar Universal One that enables enterprises to access third party public cloud services through its high-performance MPLS network for enhanced security and improved connectivity. While enterprise adoption of cloud services continues to accelerate, most of these services are public cloud-based and accessed via the Internet. Inconsistent Internet performance is a major impediment to widespread cloud adoption, especially for MNCs with highly distributed end-users. Multi-Cloud Connect will address these performance issues by connecting the Arcstar Universal One MPLS network directly to public cloud service provider platforms, such as Microsoft (MSFT) Azure and Amazon (AMZN) Web Services, AWS.

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.
