11:20 EDTBBBYBed Bath & Beyond slips after Citi, Keybanc both say sell
Home goods retailer Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) is declining in late morning trading after being downgraded to Sell-equivalent ratings at both Keybanc and Citi. WHAT'S NEW: KeyBanc analyst Bradley Thomas downgraded Bed Bath & Beyond to Underweight from Sector Weight after his firm's work on housing showed growth has slowed. The analyst noted that the home furnishings sector is growing increasingly competitive, and he took a more cautious view on Hardline retailers whose growth is predicated primarily on same-store sales. Thomas kept a $35 price target on shares of Bed Bath & Beyond. Citi analyst Kate McShane downgraded Bed Bath & Beyond to Sell from Neutral on expectations the retailer's earnings will continue to decline over the next two years. McShane also noted that competition in home furnishings remains intense, while Bed Bath's e-commerce operations continue to be unprofitable. McShane cut her price target for the shares to $37 from $51. OTHERS TO WATCH: The analysts, in their respective notes, also opined on Bed Bath & Beyond's peers. Keybanc's Thomas downgraded Haverty Furniture (HVT) and Pier 1 Imports (PIR) to Sector Weight from Overweight. Meanwhile, Citi's McShane recommended a pair trade of long Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), which the firm is Overweight on due to valuation, and short Bed Bath & Beyond. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Bed Bath & Beyond are down 1.6% to $43.34, while Haverty Furniture and Pier 1 Imports are down 3.8% and 3.9%, respectively. Dick's Sporting Goods, meanwhile, is down 0.7% to $37.84.

15:03 EDTEXCPJM-linked energy generators crash after Supreme Court upholds 'demand response'
Shares of Dynegy (DYN) and select peers are trading lower after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and its so-called demand response, an industry practice that seeks to encourage lower energy usage. The rule, which pays customers for not using power, effectively boosts supply and increases pressure on prices in the PJM power grid, the nation's biggest merchant power market. Dynegy, Talen (TLN), Exelon (EXC) and FirstEnergy (FE) are the largest merchant generators in PJM, according to Bloomberg data. PRICE ACTION: Dynegy has fallen roughly 11.2% to $9.92. Exelon, NRG Energy (NRG), Talen and Calpine (CPN) have slipped 2.8%, 7.8%, 5.2%, and 7.7%, respectively, while energy savings firm EnerNOC (ENOC) jumped nearly 78% in the wake of the ruling.
