12:39 EDTEIXWells identifies NextEra, Sempra as among favorite utility names
Utilities as a group have dropped in recent months and there are several names in the sector that offer relative value and exposure to secular growth trends, Wells Fargo stated in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: The utilities sector is trading at a forward multiple that is 93% of the S&P 500, versus the ten year average of 102%, according to Wells. Moreover, utilities are "slightly cheap" relative to interest rates, the firm thinks. NextEra Energy (NEE) and Sempra Energy (SRE) have the best growth opportunities in the utility space, according to Wells. They also have proven management teams and are well-positioned to exploit long-term trends, including renewable energy and energy infrastructure, the firm believes. ITC Holdings (ITC) has reached an attractive entry point and, to a degree, offers a near-term hedge against an interest rate increase, according to the firm. Edison International (EIX) and Xcel Energy (XEL) are underappreciated regulated utilities, added Wells. Edison trades in-line with its peers despite superior EPS growth potential and Xcel trades at a 3%-6% discount to the sector despite its at least in-line EPS growth and comparable regulatory risk, which might ease, the firm added. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, NextEra rose 0.5%, Sempra gained 0.6%, Edison added 0.6%, Xcel climbed 0.4% and ITC was little changed.

07:00 EDTJBHTJ.B. Hunt upgraded to Overweight on better pricing at KeyBanc
As previously reported, KeyBanc upgraded J.B. Hunt to Overweight from Sector Weight and established a $100 price target. The firm's checks indicate a stable pricing environment, supported by increasing truck rates and constrained capacity, and rail rate increases that are helping pass on cost increases. KeyBanc expects greater margin improvement in 2H and 2016 and views current expectations as more achievable.

Google has set up a detailed process to comply with the European Union's "right to forget" rules and removed hundreds of thousands of links in search results for people's names from the European versions of its search engine, but European regulators argue that the company is undermining the decision by not applying it globally, reported The Wall Street Journal. Google says it wants to avoid seting a precedent that one region can set global rules for the Internet and the fight may end up back in court, the report added. Reference Link
