18:23 EDTVZ, S, AAPL, TApple more than ever has become an iPhone company, Barron's reports
The bigger iPhone gets in terms of popularity, the more power Apple (AAPL) will have over carriers, manufacturers, and even competitors and consumers, Barron's reports. Having used the iPhone to lure new customers for many years, Verizon Communications (VZ), AT&T (T) and Sprint-Nextel (S) all reported results in the last two weeks that seemed to show iPhone subsidies taking a toll on their profits, according to analysts. They might at some point just walk away from this 'crazy circus', Barron's Technology Trade columnist Tiernan Ray says. It will also become harder for Apple to keep repeating phenomenal success. Amid those concerns, Apple stock has seen some eventful trading. Jefferies & Co.'s Peter Misek, who has a Buy rating on Apple -- and an $800 target -- on Friday wrote to clients that the next unveiling, the "iPhone 5," will be "enormous," with Apple intending to build as many as 50M- 60M phones in September for sale in October.

06:24 EDTVZ, T, ST-Mobile warns of unsustainable costs against cellphone giants, Re/code says
T-Mobile (TMUS) owner Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) claims Verizon (VZ) and AT&T's (T) wealth makes true competition difficult, reports Re/code, citing statements made at Germany's DLD conference. Deutsche Telekom CEO Tim Hoettges stated the dominance of AT&T and Verizon allowed them to make huge bids at the latest midband spectrum auction to further their market lead. Hoettges also stated he was "intrigued" by last year's unsuccessful merger talks with Sprint (S), and warned that T-Mobile's $4B-$5B investment requirements per year are unsustainable. Reference Link

18:07 EDTT, VZCongressional GOP unveil net neutrality law to bypass FCC, LA Times reports
Representatives Fred Upton of Michigan and John Thune of South Dakota endorsed a congressional bill that would protect net-neutrality by banning internet service providers from charging companies extra to load their sites, and prohibit broadband companies from blocking legitimate websites, or slowing speeds for customers, superseding the FCC's authority to regulate the internet, according to the LA Times. Major internet companies such as AT&T (T) , Comcast (CMCSA), and Verizon Communications (VZ) have opposed a recent recommendation by FCC Chairman Thomas Wheeler to treat internet service similar to a utility.

17:25 EDTTAT&T reports Q4 $10B charge related to pension benefits and network assets
For the quarter ended December 31, AT&T expects to record a noncash, pre-tax loss of approximately $7.9B related to actuarial gains and losses on pension and postemployment benefit plans. At December 31, the company decreased its assumed discount rates used to measure the pension obligation to 4.3% and to 4.2% for the company's postretirement obligation. These reductions resulted in an actuarial loss of approximately $7.9B. Also contributing to the amount were losses due to updated mortality assumptions offset by asset gains in excess of its assumed rate of return as well as demographic changes and other assumptions. Actuarial gains and losses are managed on a total company basis and are, accordingly, reflected only in consolidated results. Therefore, this loss will not affect segment operating results or margins. The company's Q4 operating results will also include a $2.1B noncash charge for the abandonment in place of certain network assets. During Q4, the company performed an analysis of its network assets and determined that specific copper assets will not be necessary to support future network activity, due to declining customer demand for AT&T's legacy voice and data products and the migration of its networks to next generation technology. This decision by management will not be considered in the company's assessment of segment performance and therefore, this charge will be reflected only in consolidated results and will not affect segment operating results or margins.
