Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) moved down in previous session as this spring commissioned a San Francisco firm called SalesBrain to gauge how consumers responded to ads viewed on a smartphone against a TV screen. Neural researchers used a variety of sensors to measure perspiration, heart rate, eye movement, and brain activity of the 70 participants. Their conclusion: People get more out of information on a mobile phone than a TV, and watching television forces the brain to work harder to combat distractions. “Our physical closeness to the mobile screen has shifted our perception of the size of the device,” says Helen Crossley, the head of audience insights for Facebook IQ, the company’s internal market research unit. “It is drawing us in to be more attentive and feel more positive about the content.” Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) stock has highest price of $86.75 in last session, beginning with a price of $86.20 and reported a decrease of -0.38% to finish at $87.22 with a day range of $86.11-$86.75.

VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW) released that it anticipates to report non-GAAP revenue for the Q2 that excludes the currently released settlement with the Department of Justice and General Services Administration for $75.5 million, which was paid in cash. This payment will be recorded as a reduction of total revenues and GAAP EPS in VMware’s second quarter financial statements. The settlement will have no effect on non-GAAP revenue or non-GAAP EPS, but was not reflected in VMware’s previously provided cash flow guidance for 2015. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters estimate earnings of $0.91 per share on revenues of $1.59 billion for the quarter. Analysts’ estimates typically exclude special items. Shares of VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW) traded at $82.98 by moving down -0.10% with price volatility of 1.68% for a week and 1.72% for a month. Its beta stands at 1.28 times.

Mattersight Corporation (NASDAQ:MATR) revealed strong bookings in the Q2, and lifted its 2015 outlook. The firm released that Annual Contract Value or ACV bookings for the Q2 were $5.8M, the second-highest bookings quarter in the firm’s history. This brings ACV bookings over the previous Q4 to a record $19.0 million, a 46% year-over-year increase. The strong bookings were driven by adding several important new logo customers, and by increasing sales momentum from Mattersight’s Predictive Behavioral Routing product. Mattersight Corporation (NASDAQ:MATR) stock hit highest price at $6.41, beginning with a price of $6.05 and reported an increase of 5.93% to finish at $6.07 with a day range of $6.05-$6.41.
