13:18 EDTSIEGY, ALSMY, GEEarnings Preview: General Electric shares little changed since Q1 report
General Electric (GE) is expected to report second quarter earnings on Friday, July 18 before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. General Electric is a globally diversified technology and financial services company serving customers in more than 100 countries. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 39c on revenue of $36.3B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 38c-40c on revenue of $35.99B-$36.72B. LAST QUARTER: General Electric reported first quarter adjusted EPS of 33c against estimates for 32c on revenue of $34.18B against estimates for $34.36B. CEO Jeff Immelt said, “We’re off to a good start to the year, and our 2014 framework remains unchanged. The environment is consistent with our expectations, with a positive bias.” During GE’s Q1 earnings call, management said the U.S. market gets "a little better every day," and Europe is improving. They said there was some improvement in demand for credit in Q1. They noted the company was on track to reduce share count in 2014, and on track to achieve its margin goal in 2016. The company expected to make gains from divestitures in its industrial portfolio. In June, GE finalized a deal to purchase the Power and Grid businesses of Alstom (ALSMY), after fending off rivals Siemens (SIEGY) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been light in the weeks leading up to GE's Q2 earnings report. On May 12, Barclays upgraded the U.S. Multi-Industry sector to Positive from Neutral. The firm's data indicated that Fed policy had extended the cycle, driving up capital spending and corporate confidence. PRICE ACTION: GE shares traded marginally higher following its Q1 report, but currently sit at approximately the same level as they did three months ago. Over the past twelve months, the stock has gained about 13%. In early afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow's Q2 report, GE shares are down almost 1% to $26.76.

12:07 EDTALSMY, GEEU opens probe in GE's proposed acquisition of Alstom's energy business
The European Commission has opened an in-depth investigation to assess whether General Electric's (GE) proposed acquisition of the Thermal Power, Renewable Power & Grid businesses of Alstom (ALSMY) is in line with the EU Merger Regulation. The Commission’s preliminary investigation indicates potential competition concerns in the market for heavy-duty gas turbines which are mainly used in gas-fired power plants. The transaction would bring together the activities of GE, the world's largest manufacturer of heavy-duty gas turbines, with those of Alstom, eliminating one of the three main global competitors to GE in this market. The opening of an in-depth inquiry does not prejudge the final result of the investigation. The Commission now has 90 working days, until 8 July, to take a final decision. Reference Link
