16:43 EDTFCEL, JOSB, HLF, CALL, PLUG, MW, GM, KKD, AMZN, BAMarket finishes week lower as China, Ukraine weigh on shares

COMPANY NEWS: The Department of Justice and the Department of Transportation stated that they would investigate General Motors' (GM) handling of problems with the ignition on some of its vehicles... The government is also probing Herbalife (HLF), as the FTC disclosed that it was launching an investigation of the multi-level marketer... Another American company that found itself facing new difficulties was Boeing (BA), which disclosed that it had found cracks in some wings of its 787 Dreamliner planes. As a result, the delivery of some of the aircraft will be delayed.... Menswear retailers Men's Wearhouse (MW) and Jos. A. Bank (JOSB) ended their long and public courtship as Men's Wearhouse struck a deal to acquire its peer for $65 per share in cash...

In earnings news, VoIP phone service provider magicJack (CALL) rose after reporting stronger than expected results and providing higher than expected revenue guidance, and doughnut retailer Krispy Kreme (KKD) climbed after reporting slightly weaker than expected results but raising its full-year EPS guidance and increasing its share repurchase allocation. On the other hand, fuel cell maker Plug Power (PLUG) finished the week lower after the company reported an in-line EPS loss, but research firms Roth Capital and Cowen downgraded the stock. Another company in the sector, FuelCell (FCEL), also ended the week lower after reporting in-line results. Both stocks had jumped by large amounts in previous weeks.

In a blog post titled "GenKey Success with Walmart," Plug Power wrote, "Since GenKey's inception in early 2014, its value proposition has been proven for many of our material handling customers, including Walmart. Plug Power's GenKey solution packages all elements of a high-performance hydrogen fuel cell implementation together in one bundle for easy adoption: GenDrive fuel cell units, GenFuel hydrogen and fueling infrastructure, and GenCare service...On paper, the solution is great. But it's really when we see a satisfied customer like Walmart make ongoing investments to convert its material handling fleets to GenKey hydrogen and fuel cells, at one distribution center after another, that we fully understand the successful impact our product is having on North America's leading retailer...We value our opportunity to provide Walmart warehouse facilities with viable hydrogen and fuel cell solutions that are helping to improve business operations, increase production efficiencies, and bring sustainable power to the industry. Walmart's continual GenKey adoption is not only a validation of our value proposition, but a validation of our technology." Reference Link

07:42 EDTGMNew Street-high target of $465 gives Tesla shares a charge
Shares of Tesla Motors (TSLA) are jumping after Morgan Stanley boosted its price target by $185 to $465, a new high among Wall Street analysts. The company is positioned to dominate as car sales shift to robot-driven and shared vehicles, the firm argues. SELLING MILES: Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas raised his price target for Tesla Motors to $465 from $280, well above Friday's closing price of $243.15. Today, ten trillion vehicle miles are driven annually, with almost all of them delivered by "companies practicing a 100-year-old business model of human-driven, privately owned, internal-combustion vehicles," Jonas tells investors in a research note. General Motors (GM), Ford (F), Toyota (TM) and Honda (HMC) are among the publicly traded traditional carmakers. The market of selling cars is going through some fundamental changes, argues Jonas. He believes Tesla is "uniquely positioned" to dominate given its expertise in autonomous technology and networked machine learning. An app-based, on-demand mobility service could more than triple Tesla's potential revenues by 2029, the analyst estimates. He expects Tesla over the next 18 months to roll out formalized business plans on shared mobility, allowing the electric vehicle maker to sell miles in addition to cars. His new price target of $465 reflects Tesla's potential to lead the revolution of the shared mobility public transportation hyper-structure and more confidence around the commercial viability of Tesla Energy. ROBOT-DRIVEN: Jonas expects nearly all car sales to eventually shift from human-driven, individually-owned cars to robot-driven and shared cars. If Tesla wants to succeed on its mission of accelerating the world's transition to sustainable transport, the move to a shared mobility model is critical, he argues. All of Tesla's cars are electric, connected, and able to "learn" through over-the- air firmware updates at any time, which no other established automaker can claim today, Jonas writes. MARKET REACTION: Investors are buying into what Jonas is arguing. Shares of Tesla are up 5%, or $13.10, to $256.25 in pre-market trading. Over the past three months through Friday's close, the stock is down 2%.

15:44 EDTGMGeneral Motors to invest 'several million' in historic factory renovation
General Motors announced that the "historic" Durant-Dort Factory One will be converted into an archive and research center as part of a renovation project. GM will invest several million dollars to create a modern archive to house the automotive collection currently located at Kettering University. The archive and research center will occupy the first floor of the east wing of Factory One. GM plans to develop the second floor of the east wing into a meeting area for GM, community and educational groups to conduct STEM-related classes, seminars and, potentially, research. The high-bay area in the west wing of the facility will be renovated to house classic vehicles and other historical artifacts. Once plans are finalized and a general contractor is selected, work on the archive and other interior projects could begin in early 2016 with the project completed in 2017, according to GM.
