Barclays Cuts CBOE Holdings' Q3 EPS View, Target After Weak August Volumes
Barclays has maintained its Underweight rating on CBOE Holdings, Inc (NASDAQ: CBOE) and cut its third-quarter EPS estimate by $0.07 to $0.54 as August metrics highlighted weaker volumes and lower market share.

"We saw a decline in total RPC trends for the three months ended July ($0.401 vs. $0.405), primarily driven by equity and ETP options pricing. Our overall 3Q16 RPC estimate moves to $0.387 from $0.394," analyst Kenneth Hill wrote in a note.
