11:34 EDTVZSprint rises on plans to abandon two-year contracts
Sprint shares are higher this morning after the company's chief executive officer said that the carrier plans to move away from two-year contracts. WHAT'S NEW: In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said that the company will stop offering two-year contracts by the end of 2015 in favor of a "smartphone lease" model. Sprint began offering a lease option last year, The Journal noted, and Claure said the carrier is planning to move entirely to that model by the end of the year. As part of its shift, Sprint yesterday unveiled iPhone Forever, a new leasing plan that starts at $22 per month for an iPhone. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a similar move earlier this month, Sprint rival Verizon (VZ) said it would drop phone subsidies and two-year contracts for new customers. T-Mobile (TMUS), another market rival, abandoned contracts over two years ago, leaving AT&T (T) as the only major U.S. carrier still offering to subsidize new smartphone purchases. Separately, Softbank (SFTBF), Sprint's primary stakeholder, disclosed last week that it increased its holdings in the company to approximately 80%, though the company said it does not plan for its stake in the carrier to exceed 85%. Meanwhile, a study released Tuesday by RootMetrics, an independent company that evaluates wireless networks, shows that Sprint is improving its network, having solidified third place nationally in overall performance, surpassing T-Mobile for the second consecutive six-month stretch. PRICE ACTION: Sprint is up 7c, or 1.52%, to $4.67 in morning trading.

07:05 EDTBIIBBiogen, ALS Association, Columbia collaborate to drive understanding of ALS
Biogen, the ALS Association and Columbia University Medical Center announced a new collaboration to better understand the differences and commonalities in the ALS disease process and how genes influence the clinical features of the disease. The project, "Genomic Translation for ALS Clinical care", will involve a combination of next generation genetic sequencing and detailed clinical phenotyping in 1500 people with ALS. The goal of the project is to provide a basis for the development of precision medicine, or more individually tailored therapies for ALS. "We want to bring genomics right to the point of care in ALS where instead of focusing on retrospective DNA samples with limited clinical information, we focus on patients who are under active clinical management," said ALS Association Chief Scientist Lucie Bruijn, Ph.D., M.B.A. "By focusing on patients seen by participating ALS clinics, this project will allow investigators to ask how different genetic causes of ALS translate into different clinical consequences."
06:50 EDTAKAMAkamai reports Q2 DDoS attack traffic up 7% vs. Q1
Akamai Technologies announced the availability of the Q2 State of the Internet - Security Report. For the past three quarters, there has been a doubling in the number of DDoS attacks year over year. And while attackers favored less powerful but longer duration attacks this quarter, the number of dangerous mega attacks continues to increase. In Q2, there were 12 attacks peaking at more than 100 Gigabits per second, or Gbps, and five attacks peaking at more than 50 Million packets per second, or Mpps. Very few organizations have the capacity to withstand such attacks on their own. The largest DDoS attack of Q2 measured more than 240 gigabits per second, or Gbps, and persisted for more than 13 hours. Peak bandwidth is typically constrained to a one to two hour window. Q2 also saw one of the highest packet rate attacks ever recorded across the Prolexic Routed network, which peaked at 214 Mpps. That attack volume is capable of taking out tier 1 routers, such as those used by Internet service providers, or ISPs. DDoS attack activity set a new record in Q2 , increasing 132% compared to Q2 of 2014 and increasing 7% compared to Q1. Average peak attack bandwidth and volume increased slightly in Q2 compared to Q1, but remained significantly lower than the peak averages observed in Q2 of 2014. SYN and Simple Service Discovery Protocol, or SSDP, were the most common DDoS attack vectors this quarter - each accounting for approximately 16% of DDoS attack traffic. The proliferation of unsecured home-based, Internet-connected devices using the Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP, Protocol continues to make them attractive for use as SSDP reflectors. Practically unseen a year ago, SSDP attacks have been one of the top attack vectors for the past three quarters. SYN floods have continued to be one of the most common vectors in all volumetric attacks, dating back to the first edition of the security reports in Q3 of 2011. Online gaming has remained the most targeted industry since Q2 of 2014, consistently being targeted in about 35% of DDoS attacks. China has remained the top source of non-spoofed attack traffic for the past two quarters, and has been among the top three source countries since the very first report was issued in Q3 of 2011.

13:11 EDTANGIAlibaba unlikely to make competing offer for zulily, say Baird
zulily (ZU) shareholder Alibaba (BABA) is unlikely to make a competing takeover bid for the online retailer, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors in a research note. Alibaba, which upped its stake in zulily to 9% in May, likely views the company as an investment rather than a vehicle to enter the U.S. market, Sebastian argues. This morning, Liberty Interactive (QVCA) announced it had reached an agreement to acquire zulily for $18.75 per share or $2.4B. The analyst sees strategic benefits from the deal. Increased takeover activity in the small-cap internet space could support the valuations of the remaining independents, including ChannelAdvisor (ECOM), Yelp (YELP), Groupon (GRPN), Angie's List (ANGI) and RetailMeNot (SALE), Sebastian writes. Shares of zulily are soaring 47% to $18.50 following the takeover agreement.

Jefferies analyst James Kisner believes current share levels provide an attractive entry point into Western Digital. The analyst views consensus earnings expectations as achievable and believes the current valuation does not price in potential upside from MOFCOM approval. He keeps a Buy rating on Western Digital with a $116 price target.

07:03 EDTBIIBBiogen: Clinical data supports long-term safety, efficacy of Alprolix
New clinical data support the long-term safety and efficacy of ALPROLIX in people with severe hemophilia B treated for up to two years, Biogen announced. Participants in the Phase 3, open-label extension study, B-YOND, maintained low bleeding rates with one to two week prophylaxis regimens, according to data from an interim analysis. Investigators presented these interim results for the first time at the 67th Annual Meeting for the National Hemophilia Foundation in Dallas. B-YOND is a multi-year study for people with severe hemophilia B who completed the Phase 3 pivotal B-LONG or Kids B-LONG studies. In this interim analysis, the median time on ALPROLIX during B-YOND was 27.6 months for adults and adolescents, and 47.7 weeks for children under age 12. The study's primary endpoint is inhibitor development, and no inhibitors have been reported to-date. There were three prophylactic dosing options for adult, adolescent, and pediatric participants in the B-YOND trial - weekly, individualized, and modified prophylaxis. An episodic treatment arm was also available for adult and adolescent patients.
