14:34 EDTGOOGGoogle's Nest announces redesigned, refreshed product line
Google's Nest Labs announced refreshes and redesigns across the company’s entire product portfolio, including the introduction of Nest Cam, the second generation Nest Protect, new features for the Nest Learning Thermostat, and a new app. Nest Cam is a 1080p camera featuring a stand as well as improved motion alerts and night vision, offering live video streaming to a phone or computer to keep an eye on the home while the Nest user is away. Cam users can also subscribe to Nest Aware with Video History for an additional monthly fee to gain access to video history, alert summaries, advanced motion sensing, and more. Also, Nest is piloting the ability for YouTube creators to stream directly to YouTube Live from Nest Cam. Nest Protect is the company's second generation smoke and carbon monoxide alarm, offering a custom, split-spectrum sensor that uses two wavelengths of light to look for different types of fires. Building on Nest’s energy partner program, Nest is partnering with home insurance companies to help Nest Protect users save money on home insurance policies. Through Nest Safety Rewards, a participating Nest insurance partner may offer a discount on a Nest user's annual premiums. American Family and Liberty Mutual Insurance are the first insurance partners to provide offers as part of Nest Safety Rewards. Separately, the updated Nest Learning Thermostat has the capability to notify customers when temperatures drop to help avoid frozen pipes, and it also adds new integrations with other Nest products. Finally, the redesigned Nest app 5.0 brings together all three Nest products across multiple platforms. Nest Cam is available for immediate purchase with a suggested retail price of $199. It will begin shipping this month. The camera is set to launch next month in Belgium, France, Ireland, Netherlands, and the U.K. Nest Aware with Video History can be purchased as a 10-day or 30-day subscription for $10 or $30 per month, respectively. Nest Protect is available for immediate purchase for a suggested retail price of $99, and will begin shipping next month. Nest app 5.0 is available in the Google Play Store and iOS App Store. Nest Learning Thermostat software 4.5 will begin rolling out immediately and will take up to two weeks to reach all Nest customers.

07:06 EDTMSNoble CEO fires back at critics of company’s accounting practices, WSJ says
Noble Group (NOBGY) CEO Yusuf Alireza disputed allegations about the company’s accounting practices, particularly that it is hiding the true nature of its debt and improperly valuing its 13% stake in Australian coal miner Yancoal, the Wall Street Journal reports. In a letter to former longtime Morgan Stanley (MS) banker Michael Dee, Alireza said that the company’s evaluation of Yancoal is “reasonable and consistent with market practice and accounting policies” and that “any suggestion otherwise is ill-informed and factually incorrect,” the report says. “As an associate company, we must rely on a cash flow model to value our stake, which is consistent with market practice in the mining industry,” the Noble CEO added, the report says.

08:01 EDTDOWDow Chemical, Olin announce expiration of HSR waiting period
The Dow Chemical Company (DOW) and Olin Corporation (OLN) announced the achievement of a regulatory milestone in the proposed transaction involving a significant portion of Dow’s chlorine value chain and Olin Corporation, with the expiration of the required waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976. “This important milestone marks progress toward the close of a seminal transaction maximizing return for both Dow and Olin shareholders and the advancement of Dow’s targeted market participation and portfolio transformation strategies,” said Andrew N. Liveris, Dow’s chairman and CEO.As previously announced on March 27, Dow and Olin entered into a definitive agreement under which Dow will separate its U.S. Gulf Coast Chlor-Alkali and Vinyl, Global Chlorinated Organics and Global Epoxy businesses, and then merge these businesses with Olin in a Reverse Morris Trust transaction. The merger will result in Dow shareholders receiving at least a majority of the shares of Olin, with existing Olin shareholders owning the remaining shares. The transaction is expected to close by the end of the year and is subject to approval by Olin shareholders and completion of customary closing conditions.
07:51 EDTGOOGTwitter downgraded to Neutral at MKM Partners on stalled user growth
As previously reported, MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Buy, noting that growth in its user base is stalling out and he sees no catalyst for sentiment to improve in the next two quarters, besides a possible bid from Google (GOOG). Sanderson thinks the company's CEO search brings with it some uncertainty and likely delays user experience improvements, unless Jack Dorsey takes over full-time, but that would require him to give up his CEO post at Square. The firm lowered its estimates on Twitter and cut its price target on the shares to $39 from $57.

06:36 EDTWMTWal-Mart accused of using charity to increase expansion, NYT reports
Several community and labor organizations are accusing Wal-Mart of inappropriately using its nonprofit Wal-Mart Foundation to reduce local opposition to expansion efforts in places such as Washington, Boston, Los Angeles, and New York, the New York Times reports. The group of organizations claimed in a complaint with the IRS that the Wal-Mart Foundation violated the terms of its tax-exempt status by targeting millions of dollars in donations that would directly benefit the retailer, the report says. The complaint alleges that the foundation donated over $200,000 to organizations in Los Angeles in 2008 and 2009, but raised that figure to $1.4M in 2011, right as the company planned to open a store in that area. When the store was opened in 2013, donations fell to roughly $230,000, the report says. In a statement, the New York Times reports, Wal-Mart spokesman Kevin Gardner said that the Wal-Mart Foundation took tax code and regulations "very seriously" and that the allegations had no merit.
