Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks during a news conference at Facebook headquarters in Palo AltoBy Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Facebook Inc's fast-growing mobile advertising business helped drive a 61 percent increase in revenue during the second quarter, beating Wall Street's financial targets and sending shares to a record-high in after-hours trading on Wednesday. Facebook now counts 1.5 million advertising customers and the company's ad business saw strong growth across all of its geographic regions, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday. Investors bid up shares of Facebook roughly 5 percent to $75.13 in after-hours trading on Wednesday, giving the Internet company a roughly $190 billion valuation, putting it on par with IBM Corp. "It might be more expensive from a market cap perspective, but I don’t think anyone was expecting this level of profitability," JMP Securities analyst Ronald Josey said. Facebook's operating margin expanded to 48 percent of revenue in the second quarter, up from 31 percent in the year-ago period.

AT&T's new device financing plan weighs on revenue -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsAT&T's new device financing plan weighs on revenue

The AT&T logo is pictured by its store in Carlsbad, CaliforniaFaced with mounting pressure from competitors, AT&T has unbundled service and device charges, and slashed its family data plan and shared value plan prices as it tries to attract customers in a nearly saturated market. "What we saw happen throughout the second quarter were very aggressive promotions by our competitors but all the while our churn decreased," Ralph de la Vega, chief executive of AT&T mobility, told Reuters. "We are confident that what we saw in Q2 was part of the transition we had to make to go from service to equipment revenue in NEXT," he said, referring to a pricing plan that allows customers to pay directly for their devices in exchange for lower service pricing. The plan has resulted in a lower average revenue per user, but higher equipment revenue, as customers take on the majority of the burden of paying for their devices.



Judge dismisses suit claiming JPMorgan knew of Madoff fraud -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsJudge dismisses suit claiming JPMorgan knew of Madoff fraud

JPMorgan Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon speaks at the Aspen Institute's "Closing the Workforce Skills Gap" seminarA U.S. federal judge on Wednesday dismissed a shareholders' lawsuit claiming JPMorgan Chase & Co board members knew about Bernard Madoff's Ponzi scheme and ignored red flags signaling his massive fraud. The lawsuit filed in February alleged that Chief Executive Jamie Dimon and 12 other current and former executives and directors turned "a blind eye to Madoff's thievery." The claims were based partly on statements Madoff gave in a series of interviews - including conversations with plaintiffs lawyers while in federal prison in North Carolina - about his interactions with the bank. Madoff was an important client of the bank for two decades. Judge Paul Crotty ruled there were not enough specific facts to prove the board breached their duties to shareholders.
