14:02 EDTSXESouthcross Energy Partners repeats Q4 adjusted EBITDA view $20M- $24M
Southcross Energy Partners expects near term de-leveraging and is targeting 3.0x-4.0x leverage ratio and 1.1x-1.2x distribution coverage with "prudent use of equity" to fund growth. Southcross expects to achieve at least 1.0x coverage of common units in 1Q15 and expects to grow distributions in 2015. The company says its gross operating margin is becoming increasingly fixed fee oriented and it anticipates the ability to grow adjusted EBITDA without significant growth capital. Southcross sees its commodity sensitive margins to decline as a portion of gross operating margin, noting that its recently acquired and new contracts are largely fixed fee margins. Guidance and comments from investor day slides disclosed in a regulatory filing.

10:20 EDTYHOOYahoo rises, Google falls after BofA changes ratings on both
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are rising and Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) stock is falling after Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Yahoo and downgraded Google. WHAT'S NEW: Bank of America analyst Justin Post upgraded his rating on Yahoo to Buy from Neutral. Post said he had previously not expected to obtain information about Yahoo's strategy for avoiding taxes on the sale of its stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) at least until well into 2015. However, Yahoo's CFO recently stated that the company continued to be optimistic that it would be able to cut its tax bill and added that the company would divulge its plans for doing so during its next earnings conference call. Yahoo's next earnings conference call is expected to take place by the end of next month, Post noted. He set a $62 price target on Yahoo shares. Meanwhile, Post downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The analyst thinks the company is facing several headwinds, including the maturity of its search business, a lack of products that can provide catalysts, and margin pressures as it invests in competitive businesses. As a result of these headwinds, Google's results are likely to be below expectations, Post believes. Meanwhile, the company is also facing increased regulatory risk, particularly in the EU, and increased competition from Facebook (FB) and other social networks. He trimmed his price target on Google to $580 from $600. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yahoo climbed 1% to $50.94, while Google class A shares declined 1.5% to $534.33.
