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.

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.

The Federal Communications Commission's has received more than 677K comments so far from the public on its proposed 'net-neutrality' rules for how broadband providers can treat content traveling over their networks and a random sampling of the input suggests that the agency will have work to do to sell the plan, according to The Wall Street Journal.
