16:36 EDTSUSuncor announces spending reduction including cutting a thousand jobs
Suncor Energy announced significant spending reductions to its 2015 budget in response to the current lower crude price environment. The cuts include a $1B decrease in the company's capital spending program, as well as sustainable operating expense reductions of $600M-$800M to be phased in over two years offsetting inflation and growth. Suncor is implementing a number of initiatives to achieve the cost reduction targets. These include deferral of some capital projects that have not yet been sanctioned, such as MacKay River 2 and the White Rose Extension, as well as reductions to discretionary spending. Suncor has also implemented a series of workforce initiatives that will reduce total workforce numbers in 2015 by approximately 1000 people, primarily through its contract workforce, in addition to reducing employee positions. There will also be an overall hiring freeze for roles that are not critical to operations and safety. Major projects in construction such as Fort Hills and Hebron will move forward as planned and take full advantage of the current economic environment. These are long-term growth projects that are expected to provide strong returns when they come online in late 2017. Suncor has issued an update to its 2015 guidance to reflect, among other items, reduced spending and lower pricing and related assumptions. Production guidance for 2015 has not changed.

15:12 EDTWFC, USBU.S. Supreme Court decision gives homeowners leeway to rescind mortgage loans
In an unanimous ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Jesinoski vs. Countrywide Home Loans that homeowners are allowed to rescind home mortgages within the three years allotted under the Truth in Lending Act of 1968 by providing written notice to his/her lender. The court ruled that the borrowers were not required to file suit against the lender, which the respondents, Countrywide, claimed. The notice of rescission was sufficient to clear the homeowners of any obligation to the loan, provided they do it within the allotted time. Countrywide Home Loans is a subsidiary of Bank of America (BAC). Other publicly traded companies in the banking space include Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
