17:13 EDTOGEOGE Energy seeks approval for environmental compliance plan
After unsuccessfully challenging the EPA all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and exhausting its legal options, Oklahoma Gas & Electric filed an application with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission seeking approval of a plan to be in compliance with federal environmental mandates and to modernize the company's Mustang Power Plant. OG&E's filing calls for adding two pollution control devices known as scrubbers to the coal-fired units at the Sooner Power Plant near Red Rock, converting two coal-fired units at the Muskogee Power Plant to natural gas and modernizing the natural gas units at the Mustang Power Plant. The deadline for OG&E to achieve environmental compliance is January 2019. The company has until that time to fully implement its plan or face enforcement actions. OG&E is seeking approval to recover the costs associated with its compliance and Mustang modernization efforts. These capital costs are estimated to be approximately $1.1B over a six year period.

13:45 EDTEATEarnings Preview: RBC notes 'worrisome' industry trends ahead of Brinker report
Brinker International (EAT) is scheduled to report fourth quarter results before the market open on Thursday, August 7, with a conference call scheduled for 10:00 am ET. Brinker owns, develops, operates and franchises the Chili's Grill & Bar and Maggiano's Little Italy restaurant brands. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 87c on revenue of $749.67M, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 82c-88c on revenue of $744.5M-$759.11M. LAST QUARTER: Brinker reported third quarter adjusted EPS of 84c against estimates for 83c on revenue of $758.41M against estimates for $766.27M. Q3 comparable restaurant sales at company-owned restaurants increased 0.7%. NEWS: During its Q2 earnings call, Brinker said it was on track to double fiscal year 2012 EPS by fiscal year 2017. The company said 46% of its commodities were contracted through the end of calendar year 2014 and forecast some near-term inflationary pressure. Longer term, Brinker said it did not see pressure from commodities inflation. STREET RESEARCH: RBC Capital downgraded Brinker to Sector Perform from Outperform to reflect "worrisome" industry trends. The firm expects Brinker's new initiatives to enable the company to continue to grow its sales at a faster rate than the industry average, but the initiatives are unlikely to enable the company to generate "outsized" traffic for the company. During the quarter, shares were upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan and downgraded to Hold from Buy at Wunderlich. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, Brinker shares are down over 9%. Year-to-date, shares are down almost 4%.
