15:16 EDTSWYGreenlight starts new GM long position, rolls Lorillard short bet to Reynolds
David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital hedge fund said in its latest quarterly letter to investors that it had established new long positions in General Motors (GM), Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI) and AerCap Holdings (AER) last quarter. WHAT'S NEW: Greenlight believes GM should benefit from low gas prices, low raw material costs, and its decision to launch share buybacks, Greenlight stated. GM has an excellent chance of beating 2015 EPS expectations, added the firm. Einhorn's group said they found the valuation of Chicago Bridge and Iron, an engineering and construction company with significant exposure to energy, attractive following the stock's decline. Although energy prices may stay low for some time, the company has a significant backlog that should support its earnings for several years, Greenlight stated. Additionally, the market is overestimating how much of the cost overruns for two nuclear energy projects with be shouldered by the company, Greenlight contended. AerCap, the largest publicly traded aircraft leasing company, bought AIG's (AIG) aircraft leasing business last year at a bargain price, Greenlight stated. The combined business will benefit from AerCap's low tax rate, as well as efficiencies, the hedge fund believes. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Greenlight exited its short position in Lorillard (LO). Greenlight noted that it has rolled its short bet on Lorillard into a fresh position in Reynolds American (RAI), since it still believes that the FDA is gearing up to do "something major" in terms of regulation of menthol cigarettes, but is moving "slowly and deliberately" because it anticipates an extremely aggressive industry response. The firm also exited two other short positions because the companies agreed to takeovers: Safeway (SWY) and Freescale Semiconductor (FSL), which has agreed to sell itself to NXP Semicondictors (NXPI).

08:05 EDTPLCEChildren's Place rejects director nominations from Barington, Macellum
The Children's Place confirmed that it has received notice from Barington Capital Group, L.P. and Macellum Advisors GP, LLC, which collectively own less than 2% of the company’s shares, that they have nominated three individuals in opposition to The Children’s Place’s three nominees -- Norman Matthews, Kenneth Reiss and Stanley Reynolds -- standing for re-election to the Board of Directors at the company’s 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, to be held on May 22, 2015. The Children’s Place's Board of Directors has evaluated Barington and Macellum’s nominees and concluded that the company’s three nominees and the other members of the Board have the right combination of expertise, experience and independence. As such, the Board recommends election of the company’s nominees and has rejected the Barington/Macellum nominees. Stockholders do not need to take any action at this time. Matthews continued: “We appreciate constructive input from our shareholders and are always open to listen to ideas to improve the Company. However, we believe that Barington and Macellum’s views on the Company’s leadership and performance are simply incorrect. Our Board and management team are driving a transformation of The Children’s Place, which has resulted in a significant increase in shareholder value, measured by an increase in stock price, share repurchases and the payment of dividends. Substantial progress has been made, and we expect to continue to see the benefits of our meaningful investments in 2015. Our management team has updated our merchandise assortments, developed and is implementing a sweeping systems and technology transformation plan, transformed our outlet channel, launched international franchise and wholesale businesses, and evaluated and continues to optimize our store fleet. We believe The Children’s Place is well positioned to continue to excel in the intensely competitive specialty children’s apparel category.” Goldman, Sachs & Co. is financial advisor to The Children’s Place. Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP is the Company’s legal advisor.
