On Thursday, it was announced that GE will float a majority interest in its Swiss consumer finance division GE Money Bank in the fourth quarter, forming part of a pullback from the sector so as to concentrate more on industrial interests. The GE business, which will be renamed Cembra Money Bank after the initial public offering, said that it will list all 30 million of its shares on the SIX Swiss exchange, but GE Capital will retain a sizeable minority stake.

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO): Current price $33.31

According to Engadget, Yahoo will from now on reward security researchers with payments between $150 and $15,000 for threats that it considers “new, unique and / or high-risk.” Prior to this, Yahoo doled out scant compensation for reports of security exploits, such as T-shirts, but now sufficient criticism has been registered to bring about a large boost in the rewards. It now seems that these small prizes were funded out-of-pocket by Ramses Martinez, who directs Yahoo’s security team.
