05:44 EDTVIASpringOwl calls for Yahoo, Viacom to seek partners, Reuters reports
SpringOwl Asset Management, which holds undisclosed stakes in Yahoo (YHOO) and Viacom (VIA), is urging the boards of both companies to seek investments from strategic partner, Reuters reports, citing an article that is set to be published today. SpringOwl managing director Eric Jackson says that "Although some shareholders of both Yahoo and Viacom think that a simple sale or break-up of both companies is the best way to create value for shareholders, we believe that both companies could benefit from their own version of the 'Buffett Convert,'" and that while stakes of investors would be diluted if an outside investor steps in, but "they would still be better off because their shares would likely get re-rated upwards substantially with this new partner sitting around the board table." Jackson believes Yahoo should seek outside investment from Liberty Media (LMCA), Verizon (VZ) or AT&T (T), while Viacom would benefit from Alibaba (BABA), Amazon (AMZN) or AMC Entertainment (AMC).

09:20 EDTGEGE signs EUR40M agreement with PGE to modernize Polish power plant
GE's Power Services business announced it has secured orders valued approximately at EUR40M with PGE Gornictwo i Energetyka Konwencjonalna S.A. to upgrade generator and steam turbine assets at the Turow Power Plant. The upgrades will result in a combined 45-megawatt output increase, which is the equivalent of powering about 130,000 Polish households. Under the terms of the agreement with PGE GiEK S.A., GE will upgrade three 50WT20H-100 generators and three 13CK230 steam turbines to extend equipment lifetime by at least 150,000 hours-about 20 years-and increase the availability of the turbosets to 97 percent in the first year of operation and above 98 percent in the next year. The upgrade is expected to increase power output by 45 MW and improve power plant efficiency by approximately 1.4 percent. The upgrade of the generator rotors and the manufacturing of new rods will take place in GE's generator factory in Wroclaw, Poland. The steam turbine upgrade includes the delivery of new HP, IP and LP turbine inner modules, which will be manufactured in GE's turbine factory in Elblag, Poland. The upgrade is scheduled to begin with the shutdown of the first unit in April 2017, and the commissioning of the last unit is scheduled for January 2020.
08:26 EDTTWXTwitter in play after executive departures, says Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali believes yesterday's news of several senior executives leaving Twitter (TWTR) puts the company in play and could encourage potential bidders to step forward. Twitter's current valuation and sizeable user base makes it a strategic asset for a number of potential buyers, Squali told investors last night in a research note. Potential suitors on the technology side include Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Microsoft (MSFT), the analyst contends. On the media side, Squali thinks 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA) or Time Warner (TWX) could express interest in Twitter. No concentration of share ownership and no super-voting structure increase the odds of a buyout, Squali argues. The analyst, however, adds that the executive departures are not good news for a company in the midst of a turnaround. He maintains a Buy rating on the microblogging operator with a $45 price target. Twitter closed yesterday down 82c, or 5%, to $17.02..
