07:19 EDTDUKDuke Energy considers potential sale involving International Energy segment
Duke Energy announced it is considering the sale of all or a portion of its International Energy business segment. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Duke Energy International owns power plants in Central and South America. The company's preparations are at a preliminary stage and no binding or non-binding offers have been requested or submitted. No assurance can be given that any process, if ultimately started, will result in a transaction. Duke Energy International facilities include approximately 4,400 megawatts of capacity in power plants in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala and Peru. Two-thirds of the power plant portfolio is hydro and half are located in Brazil. The majority of the power generated by the plants is either contracted or receiving a capacity payment. Duke Energy's 25-percent equity investment in National Methanol Company, a Saudi Arabian regional producer of methanol and methyl tertiary butyl ether, a gasoline additive, will not be included in this potential transaction.

12:12 EDTFNSROclaro spikes after quarterly results, optical peers follow
Shares of optical networking firm Oclaro (OCLR) are advancing, along with its peers, after Oclaro reported better than expected quarterly results. WHAT'S NEW: After the close on Tuesday, Oclaro reported second quarter adjusted earnings per share of 3c on revenue of $94.1M. Both EPS and revenue were better than consensus estimates of (1c) and $91.5M, respectively. The company's adjusted gross margin rate for the quarter was 28.8%, much better than the 16.5% in the year ago quarter. Oclaro CEO Greg Dougherty pointed out the continuing growth in the company's 100G portfolio and said he expects revenue growth to continue in 2016. According to the CEO, revenue growth in the quarter "drove higher gross margin and net income." The company sees continued "robust" demand for its 100G product portfolio as it expands capacity in Asia. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Along with its Q2 results, Oclaro said it sees Q3 revenue of $97M-$103M, ahead of analyst expectations of $90.7M. On its Q2 earnings call, the company said it sees strong demand from China, with contract awards form China Telecom (CHA) and China Unicom (CHU ), which have deliveries slated for later in calendar year 2016. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Oclaro are up 10% in early afternoon trading. OPTICAL PEERS: Shares of other companies in the optical networking space are also out performing the market, including Finisar (FNSR), Infinera (INFN), Lumentum Holdings (LITE), NeoPhotonics (NPTN), and Ciena (CIEN).

07:17 EDTTOTIran still struggling to finalize oil drilling contract terms, WSJ says
Iran is still having difficulty finalizing terms under which foreign energy companies can drill for oil there, the Wall Street Journal reports. Iranian oil officials canceled a conference scheduled for this month in London where new contracts for Western companies were supposed to be presented, with official blaming the cancellations on the inability to secure enough U.K. visas for the event, the report says. Another reason for the cancellation are conservative factions thinking that the contracts drawn up by president Hassan Rouhani's oil ministry are too generous to foreign entities, the report says, citing people familiar with the matter. Publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
