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.

08:05 EDTNFLXFacebook Netflix TubeMogul best Internet pullback opportunities,says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer sees Facebook (FB) Netflix (NFLX) and TubeMogul (TUBE) as providing the best buying opportunities among Internet stocks. The firm notes that the growth of Facebook's usage minutes fell to 17% year-over-year in July from a 20% increase in June and a 21% increase in May. However, the firm notes that the company maintained its 21% share of time on mobile devices. The firm thinks that the company's earnings could be boosted in the near-term by the launch of performance-based ads on Instagram. Oppenheimer notes that Netflix has risks from U.S. dollar appreciation and investors' skepticism towards stocks whose value is based on expected long-term growth. TubeMogul could be hurt by perceived risks to global macro growth, according to the firm.Despite these risks, the firm thinks that Facebook's stock could rise 27% above its $110 price target. It believes that Netflix's stock could jump 15% above its $125 price target and it thinks that TubeMogul could surpass its $19 price target by 83%.
