15:16 EDTSWYGreenlight starts new GM long position, rolls Lorillard short bet to Reynolds
David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital hedge fund said in its latest quarterly letter to investors that it had established new long positions in General Motors (GM), Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI) and AerCap Holdings (AER) last quarter. WHAT'S NEW: Greenlight believes GM should benefit from low gas prices, low raw material costs, and its decision to launch share buybacks, Greenlight stated. GM has an excellent chance of beating 2015 EPS expectations, added the firm. Einhorn's group said they found the valuation of Chicago Bridge and Iron, an engineering and construction company with significant exposure to energy, attractive following the stock's decline. Although energy prices may stay low for some time, the company has a significant backlog that should support its earnings for several years, Greenlight stated. Additionally, the market is overestimating how much of the cost overruns for two nuclear energy projects with be shouldered by the company, Greenlight contended. AerCap, the largest publicly traded aircraft leasing company, bought AIG's (AIG) aircraft leasing business last year at a bargain price, Greenlight stated. The combined business will benefit from AerCap's low tax rate, as well as efficiencies, the hedge fund believes. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Greenlight exited its short position in Lorillard (LO). Greenlight noted that it has rolled its short bet on Lorillard into a fresh position in Reynolds American (RAI), since it still believes that the FDA is gearing up to do "something major" in terms of regulation of menthol cigarettes, but is moving "slowly and deliberately" because it anticipates an extremely aggressive industry response. The firm also exited two other short positions because the companies agreed to takeovers: Safeway (SWY) and Freescale Semiconductor (FSL), which has agreed to sell itself to NXP Semicondictors (NXPI).

18:13 EDTPCGPG&E says natural gas transmission pipeline struck in Fresno
PG&E said in a press release: "Pacific Gas and Electric urges anyone doing digging projects to call 811 at least two working days in advance so that utility lines can be marked to allow for safe digging. Workers not affiliated with PG&E apparently struck a 12-inch natural gas transmission pipeline this afternoon in Fresno; no call had been placed to 811. The gas that was released by the dig-in ignited, and there were reports of injuries." The company said in a statement: “Our primary concern is always the safety of the public and our employees. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been injured. As we continue to investigate this incident, we remind all of our customers of the importance of calling 811 before they do any type of digging project. Digging into gas pipelines can have serious safety consequences.” PG&E responded quickly after the pipeline was struck. PG&E detected a slight change in pressure at 2:29 p.m., and was first notified about the incident at 2:36 p.m. Actions to shut off gas began before 3 p.m., and the flow of gas to the pipeline was shut at 3:20 p.m. Because of the remaining gas in the line, the flames were exhausted at 3:56 p.m.

10:31 EDTCHKAELP says McClendon did not approve Chesapeake settlement
Aubrey McClendon and American Energy Partners, LP responded to the announcement by American Energy – Utica and The Energy & Minerals Group that Chesapeake Energy (CHK) has dismissed AEU and the John Doe Defendants 1-20 from the lawsuit filed by Chesapeake on February 17. The statement read, "AEU apparently chose to settle with Chesapeake before any discovery was taken, evidently for the business purpose of mitigating further damage that Chesapeake's litigation has been having on AEU's business and financing activities. AEU has the right to resolve the case in this fashion, but this resolution should not be mistaken as reflecting an informed view of the merits of Chesapeake's claims or a concession of any liability by any party to Chesapeake. Although Mr. McClendon is a director and the single largest non-institutional shareholder in AEU, he did not approve the settlement and neither he nor AELP were advised of the negotiated terms of this settlement. AELP and Mr. McClendon will continue their efforts to have the dispute arbitrated as required by Mr. McClendon's agreements with Chesapeake. As he will show in the appropriate forum, Mr. McClendon rightfully possesses an extensive array of information about more than 16,000 wells, and the related leasehold acreage and future wells, he jointly owns with Chesapeake, including land, well, title, accounting, geological, engineering, reservoir, operating, marketing, and performance information. Mr. McClendon's well-documented agreements with Chesapeake gave him the right to own and use this information for his own purposes, including sharing it with his employees, contractors, advisors, consultants and affiliated entities."
