18:07 EDTTWTRSEC asked Twitter for details on user trend metrics
According to SEC correspondence released earlier, the Commission asked former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo to "describe the alternative metric(s) you anticipate presenting in future filings to explain trends in user engagement and advertising services revenue." The letter to Costolo is dated April 13, and was followed by a response from the company saying that it included two metrics -- changes in ad engagements and changes in cost per ad engagement -- on its quarterly report for the period ended March 31. "These metrics are intended to serve as a measure of user engagement and demand, respectively," explained Twitter in its May 11 response letter. Reference Link
15:01 EDTUALWyndham 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.
13:36 EDTAMGNBiotech correction presents some opportunities, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Michael Yee said he won't try to pick the short-term bottom in biotech, but contends that any macro weakness in China shouldn't have any major impact to financials or fundamentals for the sector given their minimal exposure there. If the market continues to be volatile, Yee recommends a focus on names with defensive characteristics, such as higher margins and free cash flow yield, naming Amgen (AMGN), Celgene (CELG) and Gilead (GILD) as some examples. The analyst adds that he likes Vertex (VRTX) on the pullback for "more aggressive" growth investors. Yee has Outperform ratings on all of the stocks mentioned above.
10:32 EDTXU.S. Steel says acted to effectuate hard freeze of some benefits
In a regulatory filing from Friday evening, U.S. Steel disclosed that on August 17, United States Steel Corporation, acted to effectuate a hard freeze of benefits accrued under each of the following plans effective as of December 31, 2015: (i) the United States Steel Corporation Plan for Employee Pension Benefits and each provision, rule part, plan or program thereunder as applicable to non-union employees; (ii) the United States Steel Corporation Non Tax-Qualified Pension Plan; and (iii) the United States Steel Corporation Executive Management Supplemental Pension Program. As a result, from and after December 31 all benefit accruals under each Plan shall cease and no participant in any Plan will receive credit under the Plan for further service to the Corporation or its subsidiaries and the compensation levels resulting from any such further service will not be relevant to the determination of benefits payable under the Plans. The Non Tax-Qualified Plan and the Supplemental Plan provide benefits to Mr. Douglas Matthews, one of our Named Executive Officers. As described above, on August 1 , the Corporation enacted a hard freeze of benefits accrued under its DB Plan effective December 31. Participants of the DB Plan will be transitioned to a defined contribution retirement plan at that time. The Corporation will perform a remeasurement of the DB Plan, and will report these results in its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30.
