15 percent through 2015 off the 2013 base, although that is more challenging

Deutsche Bank raises their Michael Kors Holdings Ltd(NYSE:KORS) target to $91
from $85. KORS posted another strong quarter, with results above expectations.

underlying confidence provide comfort around the next leg of the story. In
terms of growth, co is gaining validation as a global luxury brand as it makes
inroads in to Europe. Though KORS is up ~55% YTD, in DB's view, the current
multiple does not yet properly value its strong/scarce prospects.

Shares of VIVUS, Inc.(NASDAQ:VVUS) are trading lower by double-digits as
investors digest Q3 results and evaluate news that the company is cutting 17%
of its workforce.Not helping matters is BofA's Steve Byrne who downgraded the
shares to Neutral from Buy and cut his price target to $11 from $17."Paltry
sales growth and a company now in cost cutting mode add to the challenges of
securing a strong partner near-term," Byrne says, adding that despite
"Qsymia's best-in-class efficacy [and] potentially large market opportunity,
[BofA does not] view VVUS' current 150-specialty sales force as equipped to
penetrate the large PCP market."

to British Bankers Association.

submissions used for setting benchmarks like Libor for profiting from bets on
interest-rate derivatives.

Mae. The lawsuit includes claims of breach of contract as well as breach of
