08:07 EDTCLFCliffs Natural urges vote in favor of seven Cliffs nominees
Cliffs Natural Resources issued an open letter to shareholders in connection with its upcoming 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, stating in part: "Cliffs' July 29 Annual Meeting of Shareholders is right around the corner and you have an important and strategic choice to make regarding the composition of the Cliffs Board and the future direction of your company. Last week, Cliffs announced that we reduced our slate from nine to seven candidates in order to provide shareholders with a clear path to vote consistently with the recommendations of Institutional Shareholder Services and Glass Lewis & Co without inadvertently providing Casablanca Capital with a majority of the Board of Directors as a result of Cliffs' cumulative voting provision... Surrendering a majority of the Board will enable Casablanca to enact what we believe is a value-destructive plan, including a "fire sale" of Cliffs' assets at the bottom of the commodity cycle."

12:48 EDTCSIQSolar stocks rise after successful IPO in space
Shares of solar energy companies are rising after a solar energy company's subsidiary surged on its first day of trading. WHAT'S NEW: The shares of SunEdison (SUNE) subsidiary TerraForm (TERP) are surging 36% in early afternoon trading. TerraForm Power opened at $33.26 and was trading near $34 per share at midday, after its initial public offering priced at $25 per share. TerraForm was formed to own and operate assets that generate clean power and the company plans to pay dividends. In a note to investors yesterday, Josh Baribeau, an analyst at Canaccord Genuity, wrote that TerraForm is a Yieldco. Subsidiaries of energy companies that own power plants and projects, Yieldcos typically trade on stock exchanges. Noting that TerraForm's IPO had priced at the high end of its expected range yesterday and was well oversubscribed, Baribeau wrote that this outcome reflects the strong demand for Yieldcos among investors. The Yieldcos provide investors with yield which is in high demand in today's low interest rate environment, the analyst stated. Additionally, as a result of the strong demand for Yieldcos' stocks, they provide their parent companies with "cheap and abundant capital," the analyst stated. SunEdison and TerraForm will grow their combined cash available for distributions at a faster rate than their target of 15% over the next three years, helping SunEdison's stock rise, the analyst stated. He kept a $30 price target and Buy rating on SunEdison. WHAT'S NOTABLE: A number of solar energy companies that own solar projects could form Yieldcos, research firm Trefis wrote in a Forbes column last month. Like Canaccord's Baribeau, Trefis believes that Yieldcos provide their parent companies with a cheap source of funding. Yieldcos also distribute most of their cash through dividends, Trefis stated. The firm named First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR) as companies that could launch their own Yieldcos. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Terraform jumped 36% to $34 and SunEdison was down 1% to $22.76. Meanwhile, First Solar rose 1.4% to $62.29, SunPower climbed 2.7% to $38.71, JinkoSolar gained 2.8% to $26.75, and Canadian Solar (CSIQ) advanced 3% to $28.71.

08:15 EDTCLFCliffs Natural announces revised proxy with ISS, Glass Lewis recommendations
Cliffs Natural announced that it has revised its WHITE proxy card to provide shareholders with a clear path to vote consistently with the recommendations of Institutional Shareholder Services, or ISS, and Glass Lewis without inadvertently providing Casablanca Capital with a majority of the board as a result of Cliffs' cumulative voting provision. While both proxy solicitation firms have recommended shareholders support four Casablanca nominees, they have recommended that Cliffs' nominees should remain as the majority of Cliffs' board. As such, Cliffs' board has reduced its slate of directors to be elected at the 2014 Annual Meeting from nine to seven candidates, with Barry J. Eldridge and Stephen M. Johnson no longer standing for re-election. With this change, shareholders can vote the company's WHITE proxy card in order to elect four of Casablanca's nominees and seven of Cliffs' nominees, which is in line with both ISS' and Glass Lewis' recommendations. In addition, Cliffs' board is offering to include Lourenco Goncalves, Joseph Rutkowski, Gabriel Stoliar, and Douglas Taylor on Cliffs' WHITE proxy card, subject to such individuals providing Cliffs with their consent to include their names on Cliffs' proxy card.
