13:41 EDTCREECree sees Franco Plastina becoming CEO of Power and RF business post-IPO
In a regulatory filing earlier, Cree reported that on May 5, its board of directors appointed Franco Plastina as the company’s interim EVP, Power & RF, effective June 8. The company additionally noted that it expects Plastina to serve as CEO of Cree Power & RF Division upon the completion of its previously announced initial public offering.

Since May 2012, Plastina has served as president and founder of Arc & Company, an advisory and angel investment firm.
08:35 EDTCREECree submits registration statement for IPO of Power and RF Business
Cree announced that Cree’s wholly owned Power and RF subsidiary has submitted a draft registration statement on a confidential basis to the SEC for a potential initial public offering of the subsidiary’s class A common stock. The type and number of shares of stock to be sold and the price range for the proposed initial public offering has not yet been determined, although Cree intends to remain the majority stockholder of the subsidiary post offering. The initial public offering is expected to commence after the SEC completes its review process, subject to market and other conditions. The Power and RF subsidiary is raising capital to invest directly in the business to support targeted future growth. The offering would enable Cree management to focus on Cree’s LED and Lighting businesses, while also creating a dedicated focus on the Power and RF business. The company believes that this transaction should allow Cree shareholders to better realize the full value of both businesses, the company said.

10:14 EDTCATAnalyst says buy Caterpillar, Joy Global before mining bottoms
The shares of Joy Global (JOY) and Caterpillar (CAT) are climbing after research firm Baird analyst Mircea Dobre upgraded both names, citing a potential bottom in commodity prices. Both companies develop mining equipment. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, Baird's Dobre upgraded Joy Global and Caterpillar to Outperform from Market Perform. There are signs that the worst of the downturn in commodity prices may have passed, the analyst stated. Additionally, the shares of both Caterpillar and Joy Global historically bottom three to five quarters before mining equipment shipments rebound, according to Dobre. Consequently, investors who wait for evidence of a turnaround in the companies' mining equipment bookings may be late to the party, the analyst warned. Both stocks have now underperformed the market by amounts that are similar to their worst underperfomance during the early 1980s commodity bust, according to Dobre, who raised the price target on Caterpillar to $101 from $80 and on Joy Global to $62 from $45. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Joy Global climbed nearly 4% to $43.64 and Caterpillar rose 1.5% to $88.60.
