08:45 EDTBHIBaker Hughes downgraded to Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley downgraded Baker Hughes (BHI) to Equal Weight from Overweight. Analyst Ole Slorer sees increased risks around the Halliburton (HAL)/Baker Hughes deal and said the market seems to be underestimating the obstacles. Slorer said the deal could take another 5-6 months and face increased resistance from EC regulators, and is concerned any delay will accelerate Baker Hughes' deteriorating performance. The analyst thinks Baker Hughes shares could fall into the low $30's, if the deal fails.

13:00 EDTSLBSchlumberger, Cameron merger receives unconditional clearance from EU
Schlumberger Limited (SLB) and Cameron (CAM) jointly announced that the European Commission has cleared their proposed merger without any conditions following a Phase 1 review. As previously announced, the U.S. Department of Justice cleared the proposed merger in November 2015 without any conditions; Cameron stockholders voted on December 17 to adopt the merger agreement between Schlumberger and Cameron; and antitrust clearances have been obtained in Canada, Brazil, Russia, and Mexico. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Schlumberger and Cameron only await regulatory approval from the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China. The Chinese authorities started their 30-day Phase 1 review process on February 4, 2016. The closing of the proposed merger remains subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the remaining customary closing conditions contained in the merger agreement. Schlumberger and Cameron expect to close the merger in the first quarter of 2016. Until that time, the companies will continue to operate as separate and independent entities and continue to serve their respective customers.

06:07 EDTBHIHalliburton upgraded to Buy from Accumulate at KLR Group
KLR Group analyst Darren Gacicia upgraded Halliburton (HAL) to Buy saying the risk/reward is favorable at current share levels. North America should be the first region to increase oil production activity in a recovery, and Halliburton has high exposure, Gacicia tells investors in a research note. Further, investor concerns related to the Baker Hughes (BHI) merger may present a positive catalyst for the shares whether the merger is completed or terminated, the analyst contends. He believes both companies remain motivated to complete the deal. Gacicia keeps a $44 price target for Halliburton shares. The oil services company closed yesterday up 12c to $29.06.
