Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The Exchange has filed the proposed rule change pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act 9 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.10 Because the foregoing proposed rule does not (i) significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, provided that the selfregulatory organization has given the Commission written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change or such shorter time as designated by the Commission,11 the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 12 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.13 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 14 normally does not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of the filing. However, pursuant to Rule 19b4(f)(6)(iii),15 the Commission may designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the Commission waive the 30-day delayed operative date so that the proposed rule change may become effective and operative upon filing with the Commission pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 16 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)17 thereunder. The Commission believes that the proposal raises no novel issues and that adding the description of the categories of market data recipients for non-display use to the Market Data Fee Schedule is 8 See supra n. 4. U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(iii). 10 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 11 The Exchange has satisfied this requirement. 12 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). 13 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 14 Id. 15 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6)(iii). 16 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). 17 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 9 15 VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:32 Nov 21, 2014 Jkt 235001 consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because it will provide more transparency in the Exchange’s Market Data Fee Schedule regarding the existing definitions in that schedule. Based on the foregoing, the Commission has determined to waive the 30-day operative date so that the proposal may take effect upon filing.18 At any time within 60 days of the filing of such proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings under Section 19(b)(2)(B) 19 of the Act to determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or disapproved.

The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Penny Pilot Program (the ‘‘Pilot Program’’) is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2014. CBOE proposes to extend the Pilot Program until June 30, 2015. CBOE believes that extending the Pilot Program will allow for further analysis of the Pilot Program and a determination of how the Pilot Program should be structured in the future. During this extension of the Pilot Program, CBOE proposes that it may replace any option class that is currently included in the Pilot Program and that has been delisted with the next most actively traded, multiply listed option class that is not yet participating in the Pilot Program (‘‘replacement class’’). Any replacement class would be determined based on national average daily volume in the preceding six months,5 and would be added on the 3 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(iii).

CBOE is specifically authorized to act jointly with the other options exchanges participating in the Pilot Program in identifying any replacement class. the expiration of the Pilot Program, the proposed rule change will allow for further analysis of the Pilot Program and a determination of how the Program shall be structured in the future. In doing so, the proposed rule change will also serve to promote regulatory clarity and consistency, thereby reducing burdens on the marketplace and facilitating investor protection. In addition, the Exchange has been authorized to act jointly in extending the Pilot Program and believes the other exchanges will be filing similar extensions. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’) and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to the Exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act.7 Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 8 requirements that the rules of an exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitation transactions in securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. Additionally, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 9 requirement that the rules of an exchange not be designed to permit unfair discrimination between customers, issuers, brokers, or dealers. In particular, the proposed rule change allows for an extension of the Pilot Program for the benefit of market participants. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received from Members, Participants or Others The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the proposed rule change. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. Specifically, the Exchange believes that, by extending the six-month analysis. Thus, a replacement class to be added on the second trading day following January 1, 2015 would be identified based on The Option Clearing Corporation’s trading volume data from June 1, 2014 through November 30, 2014. 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 60864 (October 22, 2009), 74 FR 55876 (October 29, 2009) (SR–CBOE–2009–76). 7 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 8 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). 9 Id.

Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69905 A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose Background The proposed rule change would adopt FINRA Rule 2242 to address conflicts of interest relating to the publication and distribution of debt research reports. Proposed FINRA Rule 2242 would adopt a tiered approach that, in general, would provide retail debt research recipients with extensive protections similar to those provided to recipients of equity research under current and proposed FINRA rules, with modifications to reflect differences in the trading of debt securities.3 Currently, FINRA’s research rules, NASD Rule 2711 (Research Analysts and Research Reports) and Incorporated NYSE Rule 472 (Communications with the Public) (the ‘‘equity research rules’’), set forth requirements to foster objectivity and transparency in equity research and provide investors with more reliable and useful information to make investment decisions. The equity research rules apply only to research reports that include analysis of an ‘‘equity security,’’ as that term is defined under the Exchange Act,4 subject to certain exceptions.5 The equity research rules were intended to restore public confidence in the objectivity of research and the veracity of research analysts, who are expected to function as unbiased intermediaries between issuers and the investors who buy and sell those issuers’ securities.6 The integrity of research had eroded due to the pervasive influences of investment banking and other conflicts during the market boom of the late 1990s. In general, the equity research rules require disclosure of conflicts of interest 3 The proposed rule change reflects proposed amendments to FINRA’s equity research rules set forth in a companion filing to the proposed rule change (the ‘‘equity research filing’’). See Exchange Act Rel. No. 34–[] (Nov. 17, 2014) (SR–FINRA– 2014–047). 4 See 15 U.S.C. 78c(a)(11). 5 In contrast to FINRA’s current research rules, SEC Regulation Analyst Certification (‘‘Regulation AC’’), the SEC’s primary vehicle to foster objective and transparent research, applies to both debt and equity research. See 17 CFR 242.500 et seq. 6 NASD Rule 1050 (Registration of Research Analysts) and Incorporated NYSE Rule 344 (Research Analysts and Supervisory Analysts) require any person associated with a member and who functions as a research analyst to be registered as such and pass the Series 86 and 87 exams, unless an exemption applies. FINRA is considering whether debt research analysts also should be subject to the same or a similar qualification requirement. E:\FR\FM\24NON1.SGM 24NON1

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    CBOE proposes to amend Rule 6.42 by extending the Penny Pilot 
Program through June 30, 2015.
    The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's 
Web site (http://www.cboe.com/AboutCBOE/CBOELegalRegulatoryHome.aspx), 
at the Exchange's Office of the Secretary, and at the Commission's 
Public Reference Room.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements 
concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in 
sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such 
statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and the 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The Penny Pilot Program (the ``Pilot Program'') is scheduled to 
expire on December 31, 2014. CBOE proposes to extend the Pilot Program 
until June 30, 2015. CBOE believes that extending the Pilot Program 
will allow for further analysis of the Pilot Program and a 
determination of how the Pilot Program should be structured in the 
future.
    During this extension of the Pilot Program, CBOE proposes that it 
may replace any option class that is currently included in the Pilot 
Program and that has been delisted with the next most actively traded, 
multiply listed option class that is not yet participating in the Pilot 
Program (``replacement class''). Any replacement class would be 
determined based on national average daily volume in the preceding six 
months,\5\ and would be added on the second trading day following 
January 1, 2015. CBOE will employ the same parameters to prospective 
replacement classes as approved and applicable in determining the 
existing classes in the Pilot Program, including excluding high-priced 
underlying securities.\6\ CBOE will announce to its Trading Permit 
Holders by circular any replacement classes in the Pilot Program.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ The month immediately preceding a replacement class's 
addition to the Pilot Program (i.e. December) would not be used for 
purposes of the six-month analysis. Thus, a replacement class to be 
added on the second trading day following January 1, 2015 would be 
identified based on The Option Clearing Corporation's trading volume 
data from June 1, 2014 through November 30, 2014.
    \6\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 60864 (October 22, 
2009), 74 FR 55876 (October 29, 2009) (SR-CBOE-2009-76).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CBOE is specifically authorized to act jointly with the other 
options exchanges participating in the Pilot Program in identifying any 
replacement class.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with 
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ``Act'') and the rules and 
regulations thereunder applicable to the Exchange and, in particular, 
the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act.\7\ Specifically, the 
Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the 
Section 6(b)(5) \8\ requirements that the rules of an exchange be 
designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to 
promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation 
and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, 
settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitation 
transactions in securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the 
mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, 
in general, to protect investors and the public interest. Additionally, 
the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the 
Section 6(b)(5) \9\ requirement that the rules of an exchange not be 
designed to permit unfair discrimination between customers, issuers, 
brokers, or dealers. In particular, the proposed rule change allows for 
an extension of the Pilot Program for the benefit of market 
participants.

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any 
burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in 
furtherance of the purposes of the Act. Specifically, the Exchange 
believes that, by extending the expiration of the Pilot Program, the 
proposed rule change will allow for further analysis of the Pilot 
Program and a determination of how the Program shall be structured in 
the future. In doing so, the proposed rule change will also serve to 
promote regulatory clarity and consistency, thereby reducing burdens on 
the marketplace and facilitating investor protection. In addition, the 
Exchange has been authorized to act jointly in extending the Pilot 
Program and believes the other exchanges will be filing similar 
extensions.

C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed 
Rule Change Received from Members, Participants or Others

    The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the 
proposed rule change.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    Because the foregoing proposed rule does not (i) significantly 
affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose 
any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 
30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as 
the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of 
investors and the public interest, provided that the self-regulatory 
organization has given the Commission written notice of its intent to 
file the proposed rule change at least five business days prior to the 
date of filing of the proposed rule change or such shorter time as 
designated by the Commission, the proposed rule change has become 
effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \10\ and Rule 19b-
4(f)(6) thereunder.\11\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule 
change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule 
change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or 
appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or 
otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission 
takes such action, the Commission will institute proceedings to 
determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or 
disapproved.

change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of
