06:39 EDTSIEGYEuropean Commission approves acquisition of Dresser-Rand by Siemens
The European Commission has approved under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of rotating equipment manufacturer Dresser-Rand (DRC) of the U.S. by Siemens (SIEGY) of Germany. The Commission had concerns that regarding ADGT drivers, turbo compressors and turbo compressor trains driven by ADGTs the transaction would reduce the number of significant suppliers from 3 to 2. The initial investigation also indicated that the parties' competitors for the supply of small steam turbines of less than 5 MW have a limited presence and do not pose a significant competitive constraint on the parties. These two concerns could lead to less product variety and ultimately higher prices.After an in-depth investigation launched in February, the Commission has concluded that the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area or any substantial part of it.

11:09 EDTJBLUDelta climbs following upgrade, reported fare hike
The shares of Delta Air Lines (DAL) are rising after research firm Wolfe Research upgraded the stock to Outperform from Peer Perform in a note to investors earlier today. Additionally, JPMorgan says Delta appears to have instituted a domestic fare increase yesterday. WHAT'S NEW: Delta's new deal with its pilots on profit sharing removes an unknown that had been facing the company, Wolfe wrote. Additionally, the airlines seems to be implementing additional domestic capacity cuts, the firm stated. As a result, Wolfe slightly increased its passenger revenue per available seat mile, or PRASM, estimate for the company. Furthermore, expectations for Delta's Q3 PRASM have dropped significantly, even though the airlines recently said that its PRASM should turn positive in Q4. Consensus estimates for Delta now look "reasonable" for this year and beatable in 2016, according to Wolfe, which set a $62 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: JPMorgan said Delta appears to have instituted an additional, $2 one-way across-the-board domestic fare increase yesterday, following last week's industry-wide increase. The firm sees "no harm" in Delta trying, but adds it would be surprised to see material support from the discounters. JPMorgan said it remains "puzzled" as to why airline industry stock sentiment is so negative since discipline among the companies is "alive and kicking." The firm has an Overweight rating on Delta. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded airline operators include American Airlines (AAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL). PRICE ACTIOn: In late morning trading, Delta rose 2.5% to $42.38.
