16:35 EDTSSNLF, MSFTMicrosoft files legal action against Samsung for breach of contract
Microsoft (MSFT) has filed legal action against Samsung (SSNLF) in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, to enforce its 2011 cross-licensing contract with Samsung. Microsoft alleges Samsung decided late last year to stop complying with its agreement with Microsoft. In September 2013, after Microsoft announced it was acquiring the Nokia (NOK) devices and services business, Samsung began using the acquisition as an excuse to breach its contract. Samsung did not ask the court to decide whether the Nokia acquisition invalidated its contract with Microsoft. Microsoft expects its partnership with Samsung to continue and is asking the Court to settle its disagreement with Samsung. The announcement was made in a Microsoft blog post. Reference Link

16:40 EDTMSFTJefferies says new Microsoft looks like old, starts with Underperform
Jefferies initiated shares of Microsoft with an Underperform rating after the closing bell, saying the "new" Microsoft will look very much like the "old" Microsoft for some time. The firm attributes the 30% rally in shares over the past year to optimism around new management, but it thinks the tech giant's fundamentals remain challenged despite its focus on cloud and mobile given its dependency on the PC market. Jefferies put a $40 price target on the stock. Microsoft closed the trading day up 48c to $48.70.

06:28 EDTMSFTBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
The Billboard 200 albums chart will premiere its biggest upgrade in more than 23 years, transforming from a pure sales-based ranking to one measuring multi-metric consumption. Beginning with the top 10 revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on Billboard.com, the chart, which currently tracks the top 200 albums of the week by sales alone, will be the first to include on-demand streaming and digital track sales -- as measured by Nielsen Entertainment (NLSN) -- by way of a new algorithm. It is the most substantial methodology update since May 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data -- SoundScan -- to measure album sales. The updated Billboard 200 will utilize accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, equating 10 digital track sales from an album to one equivalent album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album to one equivalent album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music (AAPL), Google Play (GOOG) and Xbox Music (MSFT). Reference Link
