    • J.P. Morgan analysts warn that companies with large amounts of floating-rate debt - including Chesapeake Energy, Freeport McMoRan, Ford and GE - could be at risk if the Fed decides to raise interest rates.
    • Companies with variable/floating-rate debt suffer a more immediate impact by a rate hike than companies with fixed-rate debt, the analysts say; variable-rate coupons typically reset quarterly, meaning that changes in the base rate flow through almost immediately to variable-rate borrowers, while fixed-rate borrowers do not see such an impact until they refinance or issue new debt.
    • JPM lists 25 companies - not including financials - that have the “highest variable-rate debt as a percentage of market cap": FMC, NRG, FCX, AES, CVC, LVLT, PVH, CHK, FE, DVA, THC, OI, CNX, F, HCA, FOSL, RCL, JOY, GE, ADS, ALLE, HBI, GT, DNB, AN

    • Owens-Illinois (OI +2.1%) enjoys a nice gain after a Barron's weekend profile says shares could climb 25%, as the world’s largest maker of glass containers has cleaned up its balance sheet and is cutting costs.
    • Weak demand in a few key markets, operating stumbles and a strong dollar have hurt OI's profits in the past year, sending shares tumbling nearly 35% since July, but Barron's notes that OI's manufacturing network of 76 plants in 21 countries would be hard to replicate.
    • OI has been working to improve operations and boost its generation of free cash flow, which topped $300M in each of the past two years and is expected to hit $300M again this year; while the article says investors should not expect much in the way of revenue growth, a leaner cost structure and shareholder friendly uses for its cash could pay off in a higher stock price.

    • Owens-Illinois (OI +0.1%) says it was awarded $455M by an international arbitration panel related to Venezuela’s seizure of two of its plants in 2010.
    • OI says the arbitration panel so far is unable to estimate how much it actually will receive under the award and when it will be compensated.
    • OI had operated in the country for more than 50 years before Hugo Chavez nationalized its majority interest in the plants in a move typical of his 14-year rule.
