13:45 EDTGESunTrust lays out potential CEO replacements if Yahoo moves on from Mayer
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) have risen this afternoon after SunTrust analyst Robert Peck identified a number of CEO candidates that could potentially step in if current Chief Executive Marissa Mayer were to depart. IF NOT MARISSA, THEN WHO: As questions build regarding the stability of management at Yahoo, a focused and efficient CEO changeover process could be well received by investors, while a drawn out process that lasts months "wouldn't be ideal," SunTrust analyst Robert Peck said in a research note Monday. Though there have certainly been no confirmed reports of Yahoo chief Marissa Mayer departing, the company has seen a marked "brain drain" in recent months. Meanwhile, a November 19 letter from activist fund and Yahoo shareholder Starboard criticized the company's plan to spin off its Alibaba (BABA) holdings, saying it should instead explore a sale of its core Search and Display businesses in order to better recruit talent to those divisions, whose stock performance would no longer be tied to that of a public company outside its control. Today, Robert Peck noted that, after discussions with industry figures regarding the potential for a new Chief Executive at Yahoo, his top 10 CEO candidates include, in no particular order, former Yahoo CEO Ross Levinsohn, Chegg's (CHGG) Dan Rosensweig, Facebook's (FB) Sheryl Sandberg, CBS Interactive's Jim Lanzone, David Rosenblatt, Google's (GOOG) Margo Georgiadis, YouTube's Susan Wojiki, General Electric's (GE) Beth Comstock, NBCUniversal's (CMCSA) Linda Yaccarino, and former Hulu CEO Jason Killar. Peck stressed, however, that he is "unclear" what the company might do, and his candidate list was compiled simply to address ongoing investor questions. Peck also commented that he believes the proposed Alibaba spinoff retains only a "small risk" of incurring a significant tax bill for Yahoo, but he could still envision the company pausing its current plan and pursuing a safer process. The analyst maintained a Buy rating and $40 price target on Yahoo, citing his sum of the parts analysis. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Yahoo are up roughly 0.7% to $33.16 in afternoon trading.
08:53 EDTGESunTrust's Peck lists 10 potential CEO candidates for Yahoo
Several media reports have discussed the health of Yahoo's (YHOO) core business and stability of senior management, in particular CEO Marissa Mayer, SunTrust analyst Robert Peck tells investors today in a research note. Amid investor questions, the analyst scored a list of around 40 potential CEO candidate suggestions. The top 10 most cited, in no particular order, were Ross Levinsohn, Chegg's (CHGG) Dan Rosensweig, Facebook's (FB) Sheryl Sandberg, CBS Interactive's Jim Lanzone, David Rosenblatt, Margo Georgiadis, YouTube's (GOOG) Susan Wojiki, General Electric's (GE) Beth Comstock, NBCUniversal's Linda Yaccarino and Jason Killar. Peck points out that he's unclear what the board might do regarding a potential CEO change. He keeps a Buy rating on Yahoo with a $40 price target citing the "overwhelming likelihood" that the company's Alibaba (BABA) stake spin-off is treated as tax-free.

12:26 EDTGECredit Suisse removes General Electric from focus list after recent run-up
Shares of global industrial giant General Electric (GE) are lower in afternoon trading after Credit Suisse's Investment Policy Committee removed the company's shares from the U.S. Focus List. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors this morning, Credit Suisse analyst Julian Mitchel and team noted that the firm's Investment Policy Committee removed GE shares from the U.S. focus list after the recent upward move in shares. The firm, which added GE shares to its Focus List on September 16, said the catalysts that it highlighted at that time are now largely reflected in the share price. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Although it removed GE from its U.S. and Global Focus lists, Credit Suisse maintained its Overweight rating on shares and increased its price target to $34 from $31. The firm sees GE as just starting to accelerate measures to drive up its gross margins, whereas its sector peers have already been splitting, spinning off or selling assets to enhance their profit margins higher for years. With GE selling most of its capital intensive and low-to-no growth Capital business while redirecting capital to higher growth and higher margin industrial business, Credit Suisse said shares deserve a higher premium than its peers Honeywell (HON) and United Technologies (UTX). PRICE ACTION: Shares of General Electric are down 0.65% to $30.46 in midday trading.

07:16 EDTGEGE announces final Synchrony exchange offer results
GE (GE) announced the final results of its completed offer to exchange GE common stock for common stock of Synchrony Financial (SYF) previously owned by GE, which expired at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on November 16, 2015. Because the exchange offer was oversubscribed, GE accepted only a portion of the shares of its common stock that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, on a pro rata basis in proportion to the number of shares tendered. All shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by eligible odd-lot shareholders who requested not to be subject to proration have been accepted. The final proration factor of 31.2870888% was applied to all other shares of GE common stock that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn to determine the number of such shares that have been accepted from each tendering shareholder. Based on the final count by the exchange agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., the final results of the exchange offer are as follows: 31.2870888% of the tendered shares of GE common stock subject to proration exchanged; shares tendered that were subject to proration: 2,143,371,163; odd-lot shares tendered that were not subject to proration: 768,324; total number of shares of GE common stock accepted: 671,366,809.
