17:20 EDTCOLRockwell Collins: Q1 estimated charge raised to 18c-24c from 10c-15c per share
As contemplated in the Company's September 18 earnings guidance press release for its 2016 fiscal year, in October 2015 the Company initiated certain restructuring actions primarily as a result of continued weakness in the business aviation market. The Company offered certain eligible U.S. employees an opportunity to receive a separation benefit if they elected between October 5, 2015 and November 9, 2015 to voluntarily terminate their employment on or before December 18, 2015. The voluntary elections became irrevocable on November 9, 2015 and 468 employees elected to participate. As a result of these elections and other restructuring actions, the Company expects to record a pre-tax restructuring charge in the first quarter of its 2016 fiscal year in the range of $35M-$45M primarily consisting of employee severance costs. The estimated charge increased from a range of 10-15 cents per share that was included in the Company's earnings guidance on September 18, 2015 to a range of 18c-24c of earnings per share primarily due to a higher than expected number of employees electing the voluntary separation benefit.

07:46 EDTWY, WYWeyerhaeuser upgraded to Outperform from Underperform at CLSA
CLSA upgraded Weyerhaeuser (WY) to Outperform and raised its price target to $35 from $32 on shares. Analyst Mark Connelly said new CEO Doyle Simons has done a good job to clean up operations but said the addition of five new directors to this "sleepy" board and inclusion of one of the best real estate groups, indicate Simons has a mandate to maximize value. Connelly believes the Plum Creek (PCL) will be transnational for Weyerhaeuser by creating instant credibility in real estate management, raising the level of financial sophistication, and most importantly, waking up the Board to rethink shareholder value creation.
