05:19 EDTIBMIBM announces collaboration with ARM Holdings
IBM (IBM) announced an expansion of its Internet of Things, or IoT, platform - called IBM IoT Foundation - through an integration with ARM (ARMH), providing out of the box connectivity with ARM mbed-enabled devices to analytics services. This fusion will allow huge quantities of data from devices such as industrial appliances, weather sensors and wearable monitoring devices to be gathered, analyzed and acted upon. IBM also announced the first in a series of IBM Cloud-based, industry-specific IoT services with IoT for Electronics. The service will enable electronics manufacturers to gather data from individual sensors that can be combined with other data for real-time analysis. The integration between IBM and ARM will allow products powered by ARM mbed-enabled chips to automatically register with the IBM IoT Foundation, and connect with IBM analytics services. This unifies the ARM mbed IoT Device Platform and the IBM IoT Foundation at the point where information gathered from deployed sensors in any connected device is delivered to the cloud for analysis. The IoT connection also enables delivery of actionable events to control equipment or provide users with alerts or other information. For example, the triggering of an alarm message on a washing machine to ask the owner to confirm a breakdown engineer appointment if a fault is detected.

07:49 EDTCSCOData networking shares should be bought on weakness, says Bernstein
Bernstein says that Cisco (CSCO), Juniper (JNPR), and F5 Networks (FFIV) are down almost 10% recently, although they have "limited exposure" to China, according to the firm. Additionally, even in the face of wider macro economic weakness, Cisco "would still be protected by a positive product cycle momentum," while Juniper would be shielded by "the late cycle nature" of the spending trends of its service provider customers, according to the firm. Bernstein keeps Outperform ratings on all the stocks named.
