12:07 EDTTSLATransAlta to use Tesla battery technology in large scale energy storage project
TransAlta (TAC) has been awarded $250,000 from Alberta Innovates - Energy & Environment Solutions to help launch Alberta's first large-scale commercial energy storage project. TransAlta will use commercial-scale lithium-ion batteries to reduce energy costs for the customer. Five commercial-scale Tesla (TSLA) Powerpack batteries will be installed, each about the size of a household fridge, in a medium-sized building, such as a large grocery store, apartment block, post-secondary institution building or small office tower. The technology allows a building owner to purchase electricity during times of low demand and low prices - after midnight, for example - store it in the on-site battery units, and then use that power during periods of high demand when prices peak, typically in the late afternoon and early evening. The project should be running in late-2016. More than half of the total project costs will be covered by TransAlta as part of our commitment to the demonstration project.

06:56 EDTTSLATesla shares have 'substantially' more upside, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Dan Galves said Tesla shares are "much cheaper" now than they were when they hit their all-time high in September 2014, noting that near-term risks for the auto business have been lowered substantially and he sees "substantially" more upside as possible for the stock. Galves expects Tesla to deliver 11,000-11,500 vehicles in Q2, topping the company's estimate for 10,000-11,000 deliveries, and believes the lower-end Model S70D will lead to an uptick in deliveries in the second half of the year. Galves keeps an Outperform rating on the stock and raised the firm's price target for Tesla to $325 from $290, adding that he thinks valuations as high as about $400 are possible over the next 12-18 months.

Jefferies analyst Dan Dolev raised his price target for Tesla shares to $360 from $350 after surveying 145 owners of the company's electric cars. The stock closed yesterday down $2.50 to $265.17. On average, owners were willing to pay 60% more for a Tesla, which suggests a much larger total addressable market when the lower priced Model III is introduced in 2017, Dolev tells investors this morning in a research note. Further, the survey highlighted "exceptional" brand loyalty, with 85% noting that their next car would be a Tesla, the analyst writes. Dolev upped his 2020 production estimate from 515K cars from 500K and keeps a Buy rating on Tesla.

General Motors July call option implied volatility is at 17, August and September is at 19; compared to its 52-week range of 17 to 38, suggesting decreasing price movement into Goldman downgrade to Neutral and lowered its price target to $40 from $47 due to a weakness in China and softening US profit momentum.
06:27 EDTGMGeneral Motors downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman
Goldman downgraded General Motors (GM) to Neutral and lowered its price target to $40 from $47 due to a weakness in China and softening US profit momentum. The firm's recent dealer visits in China indicate increased promotional activity and net price deterioration to support Shanghai GM JV product sales. Goldman said this, combined with margin pressure, will likely lead to a reduction in China guidance. For North America, the firm said Q1 carryover product pressure has extended into Q2 and could be pressured further with full availability of Ford's (F) F-150 heading into 2H 2015.
06:26 EDTFFord upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman upgraded Ford to Buy and increased its price target to $19 from $18. The firm expects earnings momentum to accelerate in 2H and into 2016 driven by full production of the new F-150 and further market share gains following the launch of the Super Duty. Goldman expects positive pricing and low levels of relative incentives with its refreshed products. Further, Goldman expects Ford's position in China to continue to improve given strong product launch tempo.

11:02 EDTGMGeneral Motors to invest $245M at Orion Assembly plant
General Motors said it will invest $245M and add 300 new jobs at its Orion Assembly plant to support launching an all-new vehicle program.

"It serves as a model for how to engage the entire workforce at all levels to achieve success. The plant is up to the challenge of building this brand-new product, something it’s never seen before."

Tesla may be raising more money while it can after taking out a revolving credit agreement with several major banks, reports the Wall Street Journal. Current Finance Chief Deepak Ahuja's successor will likely make use of the new funding as the company's CapEx have often outpaced its operating cash flow. But if the Model X launch stumbles, the cash burn could exceed $1.5B and may end 2015 with less than $1B in available liquidity in a gloomier scenario. Reference Link

16:24 EDTGMOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
Stocks began the session in positive territory, adding to the late day move yesterday that followed Fed comments about the central bank's plans to raise benchmark interest rates gradually. Today's rally was broad based, as all 10 S&P sectors were in positive ground and the Nasdaq closed at a new all-time high. There were the usual headlines concerning Greece, but for at least one day, the U.S. market was able to ignore the European noise. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the consumer prices index rose 0.4% in the month of May, versus expectations for a 0.5% increase. The core reading, which removes food and energy prices, rose 0.1%, versus the expected increase of 0.2%. Initial jobless claims dipped 12,000 to 267,000 in the week ended June 13, versus expectations for 277,000 first-time claims. The Philadelphia Fed manufacturing survey climbed 8.5 points to 15.2 in June, topping expectations for a reading of 8. The leading indicators rose 0.7% to 123.1 in May, topping expectations for a rise of 0.4%. In Europe, International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde reportedly said Greece won’t be given a grace period if it fails to make its scheduled payment to the fund on June 30. Meanwhile, finance ministers of euro area member states met today, after which Agence France-Presse reported that the talks ended with no deal on Greece. Bloomberg subsequently said that euro leaders plan to hold a summit to discuss Greece this coming Monday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Oracle (ORCL) dropped $2.17, or 4.84%, to $42.74 after the enterprise software, hardware and IT services provider reported lower than expected fourth quarter earnings per share and gave a lower than expected forecast for profit in its new quarter... General Motors (GM) announced that Fitch has raised the credit ratings of both GM and GM Financial to investment grade, meaning the corporate credit ratings for GM are now investment grade with all major rating agencies. Meanwhile, Reuters reported, citing several sources familiar with the matter, that the automaker has hired Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) to advise it as Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) CEO Sergio Marchionne attempts to gain the support of GM investors with the goal of forcing merger discussions with GM's board... Fitness tracker maker Fitbit (FIT) surged 48.4% to close at $29.68 in its first day of public trading. The company priced its initial public offering at $20 per share, topping expectations, and its closing price gives it a market value near $6B. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (MSO), which rose $1.35, or 26.27%, to $6.44 after The Wall Street Journal reported the company was nearing a deal to be acquired by Sequential Brands (SQBG), though the Journal said it was unable to learn the terms of the potential deal being discussed. Sequential Brands (SQBG) shares added 12.4% to close at $16.04 following the report. Also higher was Radius Health (RDUS), which gained $7.81, or 15.1%, to $59.54 after the company announced results from the six-month extension study for abaloparatide, its experimental treatment for osteoporosis. Among the noteworthy losers was Bankrate (RATE), which fell $2.60, or 18.77%, to $11.25 and was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at SunTrust after the company's revenue outlook came in well below the consensus forecast. INDEXES: The Dow gained 180.10, or 1%, to 18,115.84, the Nasdaq rose 68.07, or 1.34%, to 5,132.95, and the S&P 500 added 20.80, or 0.99%, to 2,121.24.
