Alcatel-Lucent (ALU +9.3%) jumps to $1.54 on an upgrade to Neutral from Credit Suisse, which happens to be one of the underwriters (along with Goldman) for its recent debt refinancing deal. Separately, Alcatel says it will demo 12 new cloud service concepts at CES. Among them: energy management apps for utilities that can monitor/adjust home appliance use, and interactive tables for airports and train stations.
