10:57 EDTSUCanadian energy stocks rise after Talisman acquired by Repsol
Shares of Canadian energy companies are higher this morning after Repsol (REPYY) announced plans to buy Talisman Energy (TLM) for $8 per share in cash. WHAT'S NEW: Canada-based Talisman announced that it has agreed to be acquired by Spain's Repsol in a transaction valued at approximately $13B, including debt. Under the terms of the agreement, Repsol will buy all outstanding common shares of Talisman for $8 per share in cash. Also under the deal, Talisman will pay aggregate cash dividends of 18c per common share prior to closing. The Talisman board is recommending shareholders accept the deal at a special meeting to be held in mid-February 2015. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2015, Talisman said. Talisman Chairman Chuck Williamson noted that the deal will create "significant and immediate value" for the company's investors. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Repsol first explored a bid for Talisman in July, but talks slowed in late August. Earlier this month, Bloomberg reported the companies revived talks and The Wall Street Journal said "talks moved quickly" from there. Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, which initially considered buying parts of Talisman, was also weighing a bid for the whole company, according to Bloomberg, citing people with knowledge of the matter. ANALYST REACTION: Talisman Energy was downgraded this morning to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein. PRICE ACTION: Talisman Energy is up $2.43, or 47.5%, to $7.55 in morning trading and Repsol shares trading in New York are down 1.5% to $19.15. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other Canadian energy companies traded in New York include Encana (ECA), Suncor (SU), Canadian Natural Resource (CNQ) and Imperial Oil (IMO). Of note, Encana this morning announced a 2015 capital program of $2.7B-$2.9B, with about 80% directed to the Montney, Duvernay, Eagle Ford and Permian, its highest margin growth plays. The company expects total cash flow between $2.5B-$2.7B, reflecting the impact of higher margin production and continued cost efficiencies, partially offset by anticipated lower commodity prices. In morning trading, Encana shares rose 9.2% to $12.69, Suncor gained 5.3% to $28.33, Canadian Natural Resource added 4.8% to $28.62 and Imperial Oil advanced 2.5% to $40.88.

07:07 EDTHONHoneywell says on track toward achieving 2018 long-term targets
"We expect 2015 to be another strong year for Honeywell with across the board growth in sales, margin, EPS, and free cash flow. Our 2015 outlook tracks very well to the five year targets that we set for 2018 earlier this year. We sustained our 'seed planting' investments for the future, including innovating new products and technologies and expanding geographically, all of which will position the portfolio for continued growth. Similarly, we will use the gain on sale of B/E Aerospace shares in the fourth quarter to proactively fund Aerospace OEM incentives related to new platform wins. Our balanced portfolio mix of short- and long-cycle businesses, improving end markets, new product introductions, penetration in high-growth regions, and HOS Gold growth and productivity focus will all continue to drive Honeywell outperformance over the long term. While we're expecting only modest GDP growth in most regions around the world next year and will accordingly continue to be conservative in our cost and resource planning, our plan is to deliver higher organic growth, strong margin expansion, and double-digit earnings growth once again in 2015," said Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote.
