08:01 EDTGEGE to provide CESP with 30MW battery energy storage system
GE announced it will provide Coachella Energy Storage Partners with a 30-MW battery energy storage system as part of CESP's supply contract with the Imperial Irrigation District. Representing GE's largest energy storage project to date, the plant will be located in California's Imperial Valley, approximately 100 miles east of San Diego. The facility will aid grid flexibility and increase reliability on the IID network by providing solar ramping, frequency regulation, power balancing and black start capability for an adjacent gas turbine. GE will provide CESP with an integrated energy storage solution, configured using GE's Mark* VI plant controls, GE Brilliance MW inverters, GE Prolec transformers, medium-voltage switchgear and advanced lithium ion batteries housed in a GE purpose-built enclosure. The plant will be operated by ZGlobal, an engineering collaborator with CESP, for the first 18 months, after which control will transfer to the IID. The deal marks GE's third project using lithium ion battery technology since expanding its portfolio in recent months. GE anticipates project construction will begin early next year, with commercial operation scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.

13:30 EDTAVEOOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session deep in negative territory after a disappointing Empire Manufacturing report. The data got the market off to a weak start as optimism over last week's finish began to fade. The averages continued to drift in a narrow range for the opening hour before reversing and capturing the opening losses. Each of the major equity indices is now back in positive territory sporting slight gains across the board. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Empire State manufacturing index plunged to -14.92 in August after rebounding to 3.86 in July from June's -1.98. The consensus estimate was 4.75, and the surprising drop puts the index at its lowest point since April 2009. The employment component slid to 1.82, while new orders crashed to -15.70. Meanwhile, the U.S. NAHB homebuilder sentiment index rose to 61 in August from 60 in June and and is the highest since November 2005. The single family sales index edged up to 66 versus a revised 65 last month, while the index of prospective buyer traffic improved to 45 versus 43 previously. In Europe, various Eurozone parliaments prepare to vote on Greece's new EUR86B bailout plan this week. COMPANY NEWS: Liberty Interactive (QVCA) announced this morning an agreement to acquire zulily (ZU) for $18.75 per share in a deal valuing the online shopping site at $2.4B, driving zulily shares up more than 47% in intraday trading. The acquisition will be attributed to Liberty's QVC Group tracking stock, though QVC and zulily will be operated as separate consumer facing brands. On a conference call discussing the acquisition, Liberty Interactive executives noted that the "highly efficient" deal will allow Liberty to reach a younger base. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers AVEO Oncology (AVEO), which rose roughly 50% after announcing a license agreement with Novartis (NVS) for the development and commercialization of AVEO's AV-380 drug and related antibodies. Also higher was Kite Pharma (KITE), which advanced roughly 5.4% after clarifying that an earlier patient death in its Phase 1/2 KTE-C19 trial for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was unrelated to Kite's therapy. Additionally, shares of Target (TGT) have gained roughly 10c despite lingering in negative territory early Monday after the company promoted CFO John Mulligan to the newly created role of EVP and COO and appointed Cathy Smith as EVP and CFO. Prior to joining Target, Smith served as EVP and CFO at St. Louis-based Express Scripts (ESRX). Among the noteworthy losers was KKR (KKR), which lost roughly 2.4% after Samson Resources announced a restructuring agreement late Friday, adding that it expects to file for bankruptcy within 30 days. Also lower was Estee Lauder (EL), which declined nearly 6.5% after its quarterly guidance missed analysts' estimates. INDEXES: Near midday, The Dow was up 65.11, or 0.37%, to 17,542.51, the Nasdaq gained 34.73, or 0.69%, to 5,082.96, and the S&P 500 advanced 8.80, or 0.42%, to 2,101.03.
