10:24 EDTNEE, ETR, PPL, EXC, PEGExelon, Entergy to benefit from delayed nuclear rule, says UBS
After the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, or NRC, elected to delay for one year a decision on whether to require some nuclear reactors to install filtered vents, UBS believes the decision benefits primarily Excelon (EXC) and secondarily Entergy (ETR). The firm thinks the NRC will adopt a more site specific design criteria, and that the rule will not be enforced until 2017, versus the previous outlook for a 2016 deadline. The firm keeps a Neutral rating on Excelon and a Sell rating on Entergy.

07:06 EDTETREntergy recorded charge of 37c related to decommissioning study
As previously disclosed, the preparation of an updated decommissioning study was necessary to support filing of the post-shutdown decommissioning activities report planned for December and to obtain access to the bulk of the funds in the VY nuclear decommissioning trust to perform decommissioning work. With VY nearing shutdown, and as a result of the new cost estimate for decommissioning, Entergy increased the decommissioning cost liability and recorded a corresponding impairment charge of approximately 37C per share, which will be reflected as a special item in third quarter 2014 results. The increased decommissioning cost estimate was largely driven by near-term activities about which there is more certainty now that the plant is about to enter the decommissioning phase. Entergy expects to fund decommissioning and spent fuel management costs through a combination of the VY nuclear decommissioning trust and financing, with financing being repaid from litigation recoveries of spent fuel costs from the federal government.
