11:35 EDTGEDeutsche Bank adds General Electric to the short-term sell list
Shares of General Electric (GE) are lower after a Deutsche Bank analyst put shares of the company on the firm's short-term sell list. WHAT'S NEW: GE could trade lower in the short term as the Synchrony Financial (SYF) split-off transaction is nearing completion, Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch said in a note to investors this morning. The analyst noted that the firm continues to believe GE "is on the right track strategically." Significant expected share repurchases should provide a buffer for share prices and provide a critical earnings per share catalyst for shares, the analyst maintained. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The analyst, who reiterated a Hold on shares, sees a deteriorating industrial economy, and questions some investors' willingness to look too far into the future to justify their bullish view of GE shares. The firm, which derived a $28 price target on shares, sees potentially rising risks to near-term fundamentals and execution risks to the company's selling off GE Capital's overseas assets. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, GE declined 0.46% to trade near $30.14 per share as Synchrony Financial fell 1.25% to $30.14.

17:20 EDTCOLRockwell Collins: Q1 estimated charge raised to 18c-24c from 10c-15c per share
As contemplated in the Company's September 18 earnings guidance press release for its 2016 fiscal year, in October 2015 the Company initiated certain restructuring actions primarily as a result of continued weakness in the business aviation market. The Company offered certain eligible U.S. employees an opportunity to receive a separation benefit if they elected between October 5, 2015 and November 9, 2015 to voluntarily terminate their employment on or before December 18, 2015. The voluntary elections became irrevocable on November 9, 2015 and 468 employees elected to participate. As a result of these elections and other restructuring actions, the Company expects to record a pre-tax restructuring charge in the first quarter of its 2016 fiscal year in the range of $35M-$45M primarily consisting of employee severance costs. The estimated charge increased from a range of 10-15 cents per share that was included in the Company's earnings guidance on September 18, 2015 to a range of 18c-24c of earnings per share primarily due to a higher than expected number of employees electing the voluntary separation benefit.
