07:04 EDTLGLaclede sees long-term CapEX to increase to $335M by 2020
Looking longer term, the Company anticipates that its level of capital spending will increase from $315 million in 2016 to approximately $335 million by 2020, or a total of more than $1.6 billion over the next five years, driven by higher utility investment. Laclede also confirms its long-term net economic earnings per share growth target of 4 - 6 percent.

Sees FY16 CapEx $315M, with Gas Utilities accounting for $310M of that total. This increase reflects the continued ramp-up of infrastructure upgrades in both Missouri and Alabama. Laclede expects that 70 percent of its fiscal 2016 capital expenditures will be recovered in rates with minimal lag under the existing regulatory mechanisms in Missouri and Alabama. In addition, approximately 10% of the remaining total spend is anticipated to support Missouri-based new business expansion that will add to operating margin.

06:28 EDTOXYImpact of low oil prices extends beyond oil industry, WSJ says
The fall in crude prices is having a ripple effect that extends beyond the oil industry, the Wall Street Journal reports. Sales of single family homes in Houston were down 10% year over year in October, the report says, and restaurants in Texas and the Southwest have seen a drop in sales and customer traffic. Brinker (EAT) credited weak oil prices for downbeat results in states that rely heavily on the energy industry, the report says. Occidental Petroleum (OXY) and American Eagle Energy (AMZG) have both exited Bakken last month, with Occidental selling its North Dakota assets and American Eagle seeking chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, the report says.

10:26 EDTTWIGoldman says sell Titan with ag and mining weakness expected to continue
Goldman Sachs downgraded Titan International (TWI) to Sell from Neutral today, saying that weakness in agriculture and mining would continue to weigh on the company's results. Goldman's downgrade comes after the company reported much weaker than expected results on November 6. Titan makes tires and wheels used in off-road vehicles which are utilized by farmers and mining and construction companies. WHAT'S NEW Titan derives 80% of its revenue from agriculture and mining, so the weakness in those sectors will continue to hurt its results going forward, wrote Goldman analyst David Tamberino. Additionally, farmers have less money to spend on capital projects, reducing the likelihood that they will adopt Titan's new LSW tires, according to the analyst. Given these factors and the January 2017 maturity of Titan's convertible note, the company could be faced with a cash crunch, the analyst warned. Moreover, Titan is facing increased competition, according to Tamberino. He sharply lowered his 2015-2017 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization estimates for the company and slashed his price target on the name to $3 from $8. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Deere (DE), Caterpillar (CAT), and AGCO (AGCO) sell heavy machinery used in agriculture. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Titan sank 11% to $4.50.

13:44 EDTMUBefore the Move: Watch Intel into tomorrow's analyst day
Chipmaker Intel's (INTC) analyst day tomorrow could yield information on numerous company operations, but Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis cautions investors that the probability for positive surprises appears low given recent spending outlays. BACKGROUND: Intel, one of the largest semiconductor makers in the world, is scheduled to hold an analyst day on Thursday, November 19. Beyond providing forecasts for its various business segments and remarks on the larger computer market, Intel is expected to provide further clarity on several recent stories, including its memory joint venture with Micron (MU), plans to invest heavily in a Chinese production facility and progression towards chips on the 10 nanometer scale. STRONG OUTLOOK, MILD MEETING: Intel's pending acquisition of Altera (ALTR) and its plans to invest as much as $5.5B in a computer memory facility in Dalian, China leave little room for positive surprises at tomorrow's event in regards to 2016 margins, capital expenditures, or shareholder returns, Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis said in a recent research note. That said, the analyst views Intel's Chinese facility expansion as part of a "brilliant investment strategy that positions Intel as a partner to China" and "keeps the market open" to its microprocessors, perhaps Intel's more famed business segment. Though the two initiatives are certain to push up near-term debt load, Lipacis takes the longer-term view, reminding investors that Intel has shown consistently strong free cash flow over the past decade, leading him to forecast another $13B in 2016. The year may also bring "a number" of other positives for the company, including more data center wins after the Altera tie-up, potentially renewed sales on a cyclical uptick in PC gaming, and even the possibility of an iPhone chip contract, though Lipacis said none of those points look set to be discussed tomorrow. The analyst kept a Buy rating and $38 price target on the shares while reiterating that Thursday's Intel event may have little in store for those expecting eye-grabbing surprises. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Intel have advanced roughly 0.9% to $32.92 Wednesday afternoon. "Before the Move" is The Fly's recurring series of exclusive stories that identify potentially market moving events, along with analyst predictions, ahead of the news.
