13:14 EDTGE, V, MA, AXPJustice Department announces settlement with GE Capital Retail Bank
The Department of Justice and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced a settlement to resolve allegations that GE Capital Retail Bank, known as of this month as Synchrony Bank, engaged in a "nationwide pattern or practice of discrimination by excluding Hispanic borrowers from two of its credit card debt-repayment programs." The settlement resolves claims by the department and the CFPB that GE Capital violated the Equal Credit Opportunity Act by excluding borrowers who indicated that they preferred communications to be in Spanish or had a mailing address in Puerto Rico from two credit card debt-repayment programs. The settlement provides $169M in relief to approximately 108,000 borrowers in the form of monetary payments and the reduction, or complete waiver, of borrowers’ credit card balances. GE Capital has also agreed to eliminate negative credit reports for affected borrowers that occurred during periods of the alleged discrimination. Shares of credit card companies Visa (V), MasterCard (MA) and American Express (AXP) have moved off of their lows following the news from the Justice Department. The card companies sold off ahead of the DOJ's announcement that was dubbed a credit card enforcement action.

09:07 EDTGEGE, Statoil, Ferus Natural Gas Fuels announce pilot project expansion
A joint venture of GE (GE) and Ferus Natural Gas Fuels,along with Statoil (STO) announced the planned expansion of a pilot project to capture flare gas and use it to power up to six of Statoil’s drill rigs and one frac fleet in North Dakota. The expansion is the first step by Statoil to move into full commercial adoption of the GE and Ferus NGF joint venture’s Last Mile Fueling Solution, which is expected to reduce emissions and provide cost-savings and logistics solutions for the company’s Bakken oilfield operations. The company anticipates this new commercial expansion will increase its flare gas capture to between 3M-5M standard cubic feet per day by the end of 2014, equating to GHG emissions reductions of between 120K and up to 200K metric tons per year, or the equivalent of removing between 25K-45K cars from the road.

Pacific Crest believes that Visa (V) is the best positioned to benefit from Apple Pay among credit card networks, as the firm notes that Visa cards were prominently displayed in the demonstrations, that accompanied the launch of the service. The firm thinks that Visa's technology leaves it well-positioned to play a critical role in fostering mobile payments with Apple and potentially others like Google (GOOGL).

15:14 EDTVVisa to support consumer payments with Apple Pay
Visa (V) announced it is supporting consumer payments with the new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple (AAPL) Watch. Thanks to a new capability called Visa Token Service, participating financial institutions in the U.S., and eventually abroad, will be able to add Visa debit and credit cards to Apple Pay, Apple’s new payment service, and enable their customers to make easy and secure purchases at select U.S. merchants both in stores and in apps. Visa Token Service technology works by replacing sensitive payment account information found on plastic cards with a digital account number or “token” that can be safely stored on mobile devices and used for in store and in app purchases. Visa will roll out the service to financial institutions in phases, initially supporting early participants in the Apple Pay launch, and then extending the service availability to all of its U.S. clients.
