07:16 EDTGEGE announces final Synchrony exchange offer results
GE (GE) announced the final results of its completed offer to exchange GE common stock for common stock of Synchrony Financial (SYF) previously owned by GE, which expired at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on November 16, 2015. Because the exchange offer was oversubscribed, GE accepted only a portion of the shares of its common stock that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, on a pro rata basis in proportion to the number of shares tendered. All shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by eligible odd-lot shareholders who requested not to be subject to proration have been accepted. The final proration factor of 31.2870888% was applied to all other shares of GE common stock that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn to determine the number of such shares that have been accepted from each tendering shareholder. Based on the final count by the exchange agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., the final results of the exchange offer are as follows: 31.2870888% of the tendered shares of GE common stock subject to proration exchanged; shares tendered that were subject to proration: 2,143,371,163; odd-lot shares tendered that were not subject to proration: 768,324; total number of shares of GE common stock accepted: 671,366,809.

Shares of SunEdison (SUNE) continue to be weak and are down 23% to $3.49 in afternoon trading. Dan Loeb's Third Point last night disclosed it no longer owns the stock while David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital disclosed a reduced stake. Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah lowered his price target for SunEdison this morning to $16 saying language in Vivint Solar's (VSLR) quarterly filing around SunEdison debt financing could concern some investors. SunEdison's solar peers are also weak, with SunPower (SPWR), First Solar (FSLR) and SolarCity (SCTY) all in the red.

05:29 EDTGEGeneral Electric announces new Renewable Energy business
GE introduced its new Renewable Energy business at the European Wind Energy Association's 2015 Annual Event in Paris. The new unit significantly expands GE's wind portfolio in the wake of its recent acquisition of Alstom's power and grid businesses. The new business expands GE's global wind footprint to more than 30,000 turbines worldwide and significantly increases its presence in regions like Europe and Latin America. In Europe alone, GE's installed base will grow by approximately 50% as a result of the deal. In addition, GE Renewable Energy is welcoming a new offshore wind unit into the portfolio. Featuring new Haliade turbine technology, the offshore business has built a significant backlog of orders with EDF in France and has been selected for the Merkur offshore project in Germany. The Haliade technology will also be featured in the historic Block Island project, which is set to become the first offshore wind farm in the United States. Construction is underway, and the project will begin operation next year. Customers can also expect to see service-related benefits resulting from the acquisition. GE Renewable Energy plans to extend its services capabilities across both existing fleets, with an emphasis on using cutting-edge digital and analytics capabilities to help customers improve productivity and increase power output. Earlier this year, GE launched its Digital Wind Farm, which aims to create a digital infrastructure for the wind industry. The Digital Wind Farm harnesses the analytics power of the GE Store and is powered by Predix, the secure software platform for the Industrial Internet.

11:35 EDTGEDeutsche Bank adds General Electric to the short-term sell list
Shares of General Electric (GE) are lower after a Deutsche Bank analyst put shares of the company on the firm's short-term sell list. WHAT'S NEW: GE could trade lower in the short term as the Synchrony Financial (SYF) split-off transaction is nearing completion, Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch said in a note to investors this morning. The analyst noted that the firm continues to believe GE "is on the right track strategically." Significant expected share repurchases should provide a buffer for share prices and provide a critical earnings per share catalyst for shares, the analyst maintained. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The analyst, who reiterated a Hold on shares, sees a deteriorating industrial economy, and questions some investors' willingness to look too far into the future to justify their bullish view of GE shares. The firm, which derived a $28 price target on shares, sees potentially rising risks to near-term fundamentals and execution risks to the company's selling off GE Capital's overseas assets. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, GE declined 0.46% to trade near $30.14 per share as Synchrony Financial fell 1.25% to $30.14.
11:30 EDTFSLRLoeb exits SunEdison while Deutsche says liquidity worries overdone
Deutsche Bank said that investors' fears that SunEdison (SUNE) will run out of liquidity are unfounded, as the solar energy company is not poised to suffer any liquidity events. Meanwhile, quarterly filings are showing that several prominent hedge funds have exited or trimmed their stakes in SunEdison and another firm downgraded the shares of a SunEdison subsidiary. LIQUIDITY WORRIES OVERDONE: Investors are worried about SunEdison's liquidity, but these fears are overdone, wrote Deutsche Bank analyst Vishai Shah. Only about $3B of the company's total $12B debt consists of recourse loans, the analyst stated. Additionally, in the near-term, investors are primarily worried about a $510M payment that SunEdison has to make in connection with its acquisition of the company Wind Energy, according to the analyst. Although SunEdison will not be able to sell its wind projects to TerraForm (TERP) due to the "disarray" of alternative energy financing markets, SunEdison will instead drop the projects into one of its warehouses, enabling it to recognize cash margins for the projects, the analyst explained. Additionally, the interest owed by SunEdison's project development company will only amount to about $150M, versus the $210M per quarter shown on its income statement, Shah stated. The discrepancy is due to the consolidation of its subsidiaries and the non-recourse debt it holds, he explained. Shah kept a $28 price target and Buy rating on SunEdison shares. HEDGE FUND UPDATES: Leon Cooperman's Omega Advisors lowered its stake in SunEdison last quarter, while Dan Loeb's Third Point sold its entire stake in the solar energy company last quarter, their quarterly filings disclosing their positions as of September 30 revealed. TERRAFORM DOWNGRADE: There is "substantial doubt" about TeraForm's ability to profitably buy assets from SunEdison or third parties, according to UBS analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith. The analyst said he reached this conclusion because of TeraForm's 10%+ dividend yield and deteriorating balance sheet. Given the yieldco's recently revealed need to invest significantly more capital in projects than expected, its balance sheet will be more stressed than he had predicted, the analyst explained. Dumoulin-Smith lowered his price target on TerraForm to $14 from $30 and downgraded the stock to Neutral from Buy. ANOTHER TO WATCH: After meeting with First Solar's (FSLR) management last week, Shah wrote today that he was more confident about the company's upcoming products and earnings. Although investors are concerned about the company's 2017 earnings outlook, its 2017 earnings should grow to over $4 per share that year, he believes. Among the factors that will increase First Solar's profits are cost reductions, capacity expansion, and strong backlog growth, he believes. Shah kept a Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SunEdison fell 8% to $4.53, TerraForm sank 9% to $12.56 after earlier reaching a 52-week low of $12.51 earlier in the session and First Solar was fractionally higher at $52.90.
