19:08 EDTDUKDuke Energy takes responsibility of oil spill, makes progress cleaning up river
Duke Energy made progress cleaning up an overnight spill of approximately 3,000 to 5,000 gallons of fuel oil into the Ohio River at W.C. Beckjord Station, 20 miles southeast of Cincinnati, according to the company. The company will continue cleanup operations tonight and around-the-clock. The company is working closely, on-site, with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Coast Guard, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection and local agencies in response to the spill. The incident occurred shortly after 11 p.m. Monday during a fuel oil transfer at the plant on the banks of the Ohio River in New Richmond, Ohio. The company Monday night and early today quickly mobilized internal and external resources to respond to the spill, including three vessels on the river that have deployed approximately 2,000 feet of oil-containment booms to contain and help collect the oil. "We're working around the clock to rapidly and fully restore the affected section of the Ohio River and coordinating closely with local officials to make sure that drinking water continues to remain safe," said Lynn Good, president and CEO of Duke Energy. "We take responsibility for the cleanup and the well being of the communities we serve."

Lowe's Companies (LOW), a home improvement retailer, is scheduled to report on its second quarter before the market open on Wednesday, August 20, with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.02 on revenue of $16.55B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 96c-$1.06 on revenue of $16.16B-$16.79B. LAST QUARTER: Lowe's reported first quarter EPS of 61c, beating analyst's estimates of 60c, on revenue of $13.4B against estimates for $13.86B. The company also reported Q1 same-store sales rose 0.9%. Lowe's raised its fiscal year 2014 EPS guidance to approximately $2.63 from $2.60 against estimates at that time for $2.62 and said it expects revenue up 5% in this fiscal year compared to last. Lowe's said it expected to open 10 home improvement and 5 hardware stores in 2014 and expects its FY14 SSS to increase approximately 4%. The company expects to repurchase $3.4B of stock this fiscal year. NEWS: During the quarter, Lowe's named Paul Ramsay as Chief Information Officer. The company also raised its quarterly dividend 27.8% to 23c per share. STREET RESEARCH: Deutsche Bank lowered its estimates for both Lowe's and Home Depot (HD) after Tractor Supply (TSCO) and Lumber Liquidators (LL) pre-announced Q2 comp misses.

Morgan Stanley initiated Lowe's with an Equal Weight rating and $50 target in June. Canaccord downgraded Lowe's to Sell from Hold due to slowing housing momentum, management changes, and difficult competition. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, Lowe's shares are up almost 14%. In morning trading ahead of tomorrow's report, Lowe's is up nearly 3% to $51.89.
