GE announced it will provide Coachella Energy Storage Partners with a 30-MW battery energy storage system as part of CESP's supply contract with the Imperial Irrigation District. Representing GE's largest energy storage project to date, the plant will be located in California's Imperial Valley, approximately 100 miles east of San Diego.

16:13 EDTGEOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Friday
Stocks began the session with modest losses despite a calm overnight trading session for the Chinese yuan. The U.S. economic data that was released prior to the open were generally in-line with expectations leaving little for investors to key in on during the market hours. As a result, the averages drifted several times across the flat line until finally moving higher in the afternoon. Even the price of crude was fairly stale throughout the session, but it still closed toward its low of the day. The market received a slight boost toward the end of the session when headlines out of Europe said the area's finance ministers agreed to implement the Greek bailout with a couple of additional measures. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., both industrial production and PPI beat estimates, with industrial production increasing 0.6% and PPI increasing 0.2%. Consumer sentiment for August fell to 92.9 in the preliminary report from the University of Michigan survey, after slipping to 93.1 in July from 96.1 in June. Meanwhile, Euro-area GDP rose 0.3% last quarter. Germany's economy grew 0.4%, Italy's 0.2%, while France stagnated. The Baker Hughes North American rig count report was unchanged from last week at 884 rigs. COMPANY NEWS: Nelson Peltz's Trian Fund Management disclosed a new 7.08% stake in food distributor Sysco Corporation (SYY), and is engaged in discussions with the company including board representation for Trian. Sysco rose 7.4% to $41.38 after the disclosure of the Trian stake... General Electric (GE) announced an agreement to sell GE Capital Bank's U.S. online deposit platform along with all deposits of GE Capital Bank, including online savings accounts, online CDs and brokered CDs, to Goldman Sachs Bank USA (GS). Under this agreement approximately $16B of deposits will be transferred to GS Bank. Additionally, Reuters reported that General Electric was expected to win EU antitrust approval for its proposed EUR12.4B acquisition of Alstom's (ALSMY) power unit, according to two people familiar with the matter. GE rose 1.1% to $26.08 on the day. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were department store retailers Nordstrom (JWN) and J.C. Penney (JCP), which gained 4.3% and 5.6%, respectively. Also higher was WuXi PharmaTech (WX), up 6.15%, which reported earnings and entered into an agreement to be acquired by a management buyout group for around $3.3B. Among the noteworthy losers was El Pollo Loco (LOCO), which dropped 20.7% after its Q2 revenue fell short of analysts' estimates. Also lower were shares of King Digital (KING), which declined nearly 20.7% after reporting quarterly earnings and forecasting gross bookings for the third quarter $460M-$485M, citing "recent trends." INDEXES: The Dow rose 69.15, or 0.4%, to 17,477.40, the Nasdaq gained 14.68, or 0.29%, to 5,048.23, and the S&P 500 advanced 8.15, or 0.39%, to 2,091.54.

12:37 EDTGEOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session with modest losses, despite a stabilization in the Chinese yuan overnight. Relatively in line data on producer prices and industrial production did not hurt the situation, but there was also the lack of a catalyst. As a result, the market has drifted throughout the morning session moving up as much as 0.4% before paring its gains. The market is now struggling to hold onto its meager gains. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., both industrial production and PPI beat estimates, with industrial production increasing 0.6% and PPI increasing 0.2%. Consumer sentiment for August fell to 92.9 in the preliminary report from the University of Michigan survey, after slipping to 93.1 in July from 96.1 in June. Meanwhile, Euro-area GDP rose 0.3% last quarter. Germany's economy grew 0.4%, Italy's 0.2%, while France stagnated. The Baker Hughes North American rig count report is out at 1 p.m. ET. COMPANY NEWS: General Electric (GE) announced an agreement to sell GE Capital Bank's U.S. online deposit platform along with all deposits of GE Capital Bank, including online savings accounts, online CDs and brokered CDs, to Goldman Sachs Bank USA (GS). Under this agreement approximately $16B of deposits will be transferred to GS Bank. Separately, Goldman Sachs is selling its Colombia coal mining division to privately held Murray Energy. General Motors (GM) is boosting production of its larger SUVs and trucks, according to Reuters. The automaker could make as many as 60,000 additional vehicles for the 2016 model year to capitalize on rising demand. Meanwhile, GM is recalling 73,424 small cars because improper wiring could prevent the roof-mounted driver's side air bag from deploying after a crash, the Associated Press reported. SunTrust analyst Robert Peck said he believes Twitter (TWTR) could announce a permanent CEO as early as next week. Peck continues to think Twitter is likely to unveil a "Triumvirate of leadership" with Jack Dorsey as CEO, Adam Bain as COO and Evan Williams with more board influence, possibly Chairman. Tesla's (TSLA) secondary offering of 2.7 million common shares was priced at $242 each, according to an SEC filing. That represents an increase from the 2.1 million shares Tesla had previously announced for the offering. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were department store retailers Nordstrom (JWN) and J.C. Penney (JCP), which gained 5.35% and 5.95%, respectively. Also higher was WuXi PharmaTech (WX), up 5.45%, which reported earnings and entered into an agreement to be acquired by a management buyout group for around $3.3B. Cyberark Software (CYBR) also gained 1.8% after being upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo. Among the noteworthy losers was El Pollo Loco (LOCO), which dropped 18% after its Q2 revenue fell short of analysts' estimates. Also lower were shares of King Digital (KING), which declined nearly 12% after reporting quarterly earnings and forecasting gross bookings for the third quarter $460M-$485M, citing "recent trends." The company said fourth quarter gross bookings would be "fairly consistent sequentially." JPMorgan downgraded King Digital this morning to Neutral from Overweight citing an elevated risk profile following the results. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 42.43, or 0.24%, to 17,450.68, the Nasdaq was fractionally lower by 2.96, or 0.06%, to 5,030.59, and the S&P 500 was up 3.46, or 0.17%, to 2,086.89.
