05:29 EDTGEGeneral Electric announces new Renewable Energy business
GE introduced its new Renewable Energy business at the European Wind Energy Association's 2015 Annual Event in Paris. The new unit significantly expands GE's wind portfolio in the wake of its recent acquisition of Alstom's power and grid businesses. The new business expands GE's global wind footprint to more than 30,000 turbines worldwide and significantly increases its presence in regions like Europe and Latin America. In Europe alone, GE's installed base will grow by approximately 50% as a result of the deal. In addition, GE Renewable Energy is welcoming a new offshore wind unit into the portfolio. Featuring new Haliade turbine technology, the offshore business has built a significant backlog of orders with EDF in France and has been selected for the Merkur offshore project in Germany. The Haliade technology will also be featured in the historic Block Island project, which is set to become the first offshore wind farm in the United States. Construction is underway, and the project will begin operation next year. Customers can also expect to see service-related benefits resulting from the acquisition. GE Renewable Energy plans to extend its services capabilities across both existing fleets, with an emphasis on using cutting-edge digital and analytics capabilities to help customers improve productivity and increase power output. Earlier this year, GE launched its Digital Wind Farm, which aims to create a digital infrastructure for the wind industry. The Digital Wind Farm harnesses the analytics power of the GE Store and is powered by Predix, the secure software platform for the Industrial Internet.

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.

17:54 EDTFBFacebook to expand use of 'Safety Check' feature in wake of Paris attacks
Facebook announced it will be expanding its use of "Safety Check," a feature allowing users of the social network who live in endangered areas of the world to let friends and family know they are safe. Traditionally limited to natural disasters, the policy change has been made in the wake of the terrorist attacks on Paris, France, during which the company turned on Safety Check for affected users. The move spurred both praise for quick action and criticism for not using the feature during other serious events such as Thursday's tragedy in Beirut, prompting Facebook to reconsider its use of the service. "Each time we have launched the tool, we've improved it... We are learning to make the tool and policies behind it better as we go -- and because Safety Check is a relatively new feature for us, we're still understanding how it can best be used... We talked with our employees on the ground, who felt that there was still a need that we could fill. So we made the decision to try something we've never done before: activating Safety Check for something other than a natural disaster... We want this tool to be available whenever and wherever it can help," explained the company.
