  • The SEC's probe of Facebook's (FB +0.1%) IPO has found no evidence thus far the company withheld important info from investors, a source tells Bloomberg. The agency is also looking at other issues, such as whether investors were given misleading info from brokers, and whether i-bankers made selective disclosures to analysts. The report comes as Facebook and its underwriters contend with an avalanche of lawsuits. Shares are closing near breakeven on a rough day for tech. [View news story]

  • The House has passed the No More Solyndras Act, which would curtail a DOE loan guarantee program that ignited a firestorm of controversy after a certain solar manufacturer went belly-up. The bill, passed mostly on party lines, has little chance of clearing the Democrat-controlled Senate, but it highlights the tense political climate the DOE program, which U.S. solar vendors such as First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR) depend heavily on, operates under. [View news story]
    You can thank Obama for Solyndra and he should return the money funneled back to him at the tax payers expense.

  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein asks the FTC to investigate a 30-cent rise in California gasoline prices since the start of the month, saying prices rose after the fire at Chevron's refinery in Richmond, Calif., even though the incident has not led to a shortage in supply that could justify the price increase. Gasoline prices have increased across the U.S., but Feinstein says they've risen faster in California. [View news story]
