10:09 EDTGSAllstate enters accelerated share repurchase agreement with Goldman Sachs
Allstate (ALL) said in a filing that on March 19, the Registrant entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement with Goldman, Sachs & Co. (GS), to purchase $500M of its outstanding common stock. The majority of the shares to be repurchased under this agreement will be received by the Registrant at the agreementís inception. It is expected that Goldman will purchase the shares that it delivers under the agreement in the market within a timeframe not to exceed three months. The final purchase price per share and number of shares to be delivered by Goldman will be determined at the conclusion of the agreement and settlement will consist of the Registrant receiving shares based on the average of the daily volume weighted average prices of the Registrantís common stock during the period of Goldman purchases. If the Registrant is required to pay a settlement amount, the Registrant may elect to settle in cash or shares of its common stock. The agreement is part of the Registrantís repurchase program totaling $3B that was announced on February 4, 2015. All of the shares acquired by the Registrant under the agreement will be placed into its treasury.
08:01 EDTGMStifel says evidence supports Apple moving into electric vehicles
Analysts at Stifel say they see enough evidence to suggest that Apple is internally working on the development of a battery electric vehicle to be sold over the next five-to-ten years. The analysts are "intrigued" by Apple CFO Luca Maestri's background at General Motors (GM). They believe Apple's investments in manufacturing should be a key consideration for investors and point out the $40B spent by the iPhone maker over the past five years, with 80%-plus invested in manufacturing, is similar to GM, Ford (F) and Daimler-Benz and well above Tesla's $1.8B cumulative capex. The analysts say there is a "lot to think about" regarding Apple's move into the car space, including the regulatory environment. They keep a Buy rating on the tech giant with a $150 price target. Shares of Apple closed yesterday down 97c to $127.50.
