16:15 EDTS, T, AMPE, AAPL, KBH, ABVTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher, with Apple (AAPL) leading the Nasdaq upward after declaring its first planned dividend along with a stock buyback plan. Stock futures were slightly lower early in the session and moved near the flat-line prior to the opening bell. The futures action led to a rather uneventful open for the broader market, which drifted throughout the morning. The market seemed unaffected by a slightly disappointing NAHB Housing report. The drifting continued throughout the day, with the trading range again being narrow, though Apple's move helped the Nasdaq tack on 0.75%... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NAHB Housing Market Index reading of 28 fell a bit short of the expected 30 reading... MARKET NEWS: Apple plans to initiate a quarterly dividend of $2.65 per share in Q4, giving its stock roughly a 1.8% yield, and also said it will begin a $10B share repurchase program in FY13. In its call to discuss its cash plans, Apple said it set new records with the sales of the latest iPad, which was later echoed in an announcement by AT&T (T), but neither company provided specific figures... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were AboveNet (ABVT), up $9.49, or 12.78%, to $83.74, after agreeing to be taken private by Zayo Group for $84 per share, and Ampio Pharmaceuticals (AMPE), up $1.14, or 42.54%, to $3.82, following a preliminary assessment of a trial for its Optina drug. Noteworthy losers included Sprint (S), down 13c, or 4.50%, to $2.76, after Bernstein downgraded the stock and lowered its price target to $1.75 from $2.50, and KB Home (KBH), down 87c, or 6.82%, to $11.89, after the March NAHB homebuilder sentiment report included a lower regional breakout for the West that ISI Homebuilding Research called "a headwind for KBH"... INDICES: The Dow gained 6.51, or 0.05%, to 13,239.13; the Nasdaq added 23.06, or 0.75%, to 3,078.32; and the S&P 500 rose 5.58, or 0.40%, to 1,409.75.

12:43 EDTTAT&T issues statement on White House Title II announcement
AT&T issued the following statement in response to the White House's announcement regarding Title II. AT&T executive VP Jim Cicconi said, "Today’s announcement by the White House, if acted upon by the FCC, would be a mistake that will do tremendous harm to the Internet and to U.S. national interests. It is a complete reversal of a bipartisan policy that has been in place since the Clinton Administration—namely, to treat Internet access as an information service subject to light-touch regulation. This classification of Internet service has been upheld by the Supreme Court and has enjoyed strong Congressional support for nearly a generation. Now, with one statement, the White House is telling the FCC to ignore this precedent and to instead impose on the entire Internet—from end to end—onerous government regulation designed in the 1930s for a Bell phone monopoly that no longer exists, not for a 21st century technology. This will have a negative impact not only on investment and innovation, but also on our economy overall. For a generation, the Internet has been an American success story. Light-touch regulation has encouraged levels of investment unprecedented by any industry and spawned incredible innovation. Today’s action puts all of that at risk—and puts it at risk not to remedy any specific harm that has occurred. Instead, this action is designed to deal with a hypothetical problem posed by certain political groups whose objective all along has been to bring about government control of the Internet. The White House is proposing to put the Internet and our economy at risk as a result of such political pressures. We feel the actions called for by the White House are inconsistent with decades of legal precedent as well as Congressional intent. Moreover, if the government were going to make such a momentous decision as regulating the entire Internet like a public utility, that decision is more properly made by the Congress and not by unelected regulators without any public record to support the change in regulation. If the FCC puts such rules in place, we would expect to participate in a legal challenge to such action.”
