08:07 EDTCLFCliffs Natural urges vote in favor of seven Cliffs nominees
Cliffs Natural Resources issued an open letter to shareholders in connection with its upcoming 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, stating in part: "Cliffs' July 29 Annual Meeting of Shareholders is right around the corner and you have an important and strategic choice to make regarding the composition of the Cliffs Board and the future direction of your company. Last week, Cliffs announced that we reduced our slate from nine to seven candidates in order to provide shareholders with a clear path to vote consistently with the recommendations of Institutional Shareholder Services and Glass Lewis & Co without inadvertently providing Casablanca Capital with a majority of the Board of Directors as a result of Cliffs' cumulative voting provision... Surrendering a majority of the Board will enable Casablanca to enact what we believe is a value-destructive plan, including a "fire sale" of Cliffs' assets at the bottom of the commodity cycle."

08:15 EDTCLFCliffs Natural announces revised proxy with ISS, Glass Lewis recommendations
Cliffs Natural announced that it has revised its WHITE proxy card to provide shareholders with a clear path to vote consistently with the recommendations of Institutional Shareholder Services, or ISS, and Glass Lewis without inadvertently providing Casablanca Capital with a majority of the board as a result of Cliffs' cumulative voting provision. While both proxy solicitation firms have recommended shareholders support four Casablanca nominees, they have recommended that Cliffs' nominees should remain as the majority of Cliffs' board. As such, Cliffs' board has reduced its slate of directors to be elected at the 2014 Annual Meeting from nine to seven candidates, with Barry J. Eldridge and Stephen M. Johnson no longer standing for re-election. With this change, shareholders can vote the company's WHITE proxy card in order to elect four of Casablanca's nominees and seven of Cliffs' nominees, which is in line with both ISS' and Glass Lewis' recommendations. In addition, Cliffs' board is offering to include Lourenco Goncalves, Joseph Rutkowski, Gabriel Stoliar, and Douglas Taylor on Cliffs' WHITE proxy card, subject to such individuals providing Cliffs with their consent to include their names on Cliffs' proxy card.
07:37 EDTISRGIntuitive Surgical Q2 expectations 'appear achievable,' says Jefferies
Jefferies says its hospital and surgeon channel checks increase its comfort level around initial Xi demand and overall placements ahead of Intuitive Surgical's Q2 results, though the firm cautions that visibility on utilization is low and procedures could come in below consensus. Jefferies thinks expectations for Q2 "appear achievable" since they incorporate near-term challenges. The firm keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $465 price target.

Maxim keeps a Buy rating on Comcast shares.
07:00 EDTFMSFresenius Medical shares should be bought, says Bernstein
Bernstein notes that Fresenius' (FMS) stock has sharply underperformed versus its competitor, DaVita (DVA), since May 2012. But the firm predicts that Fresenius' core U.S. business should outperform that of DaVita going forward. Bernstein adds that it finds Fresenius' business units aside from its U.S. dialysis clinics more attractive than DaVita's businesses other than its U.S. dialysis clinics.
