12:07 EDTGEEU 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 Commissionís 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

Goldman downgraded the Aerospace sector to Neutral based on group outperformance and increased downside risks. The firm believes Boeing (BA) and Airbus are now oversupplying the market after a decade of undersupply and replacement demand required to sustain production may prove difficult to achieve. Goldman said accelerated new aircraft replacements was partially due to fuel economics and lower fuel prices and global growth volatility could substantially change Aerospace dynamics. As part of the sector view change, Goldman downgraded Boeing to Sell from Neutral and Precision Castparts (PCP) to Natural from Buy.

10:47 EDTCOFNY AG says Santander Bank to adopt new policies regarding use of ChexSystems
New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced that Santander Bank, N.A. (SAN) has agreed to adopt new policies governing its use of ChexSystems, a consumer-reporting agency that screens people seeking to open checking or savings accounts. Santanderís new policies are expected to allow thousands of additional New Yorkers and consumers nationwide to open bank accounts by September 30. The change comes amid concerns that screenings by ChexSystems and other consumer-reporting agencies, which are used by most of the nationís banks, adversely affect lower-income applicants and force them to turn to high-cost alternative financial services like check-cashing outlets. With this agreement, Santander now joins Capital One (COF) and Citibank (C) as the third bank to commit to overhaul its use of ChexSystems. The three banks operate a combined 613 branches across New York State and 2,822 branches nationwide.
