The Weather Channel, which is owned by a consortium made up of NBCUniversal (CMCSA) and private equity firms Bain Capital and The Blackstone Group (BX), was dropped last month from Verizon's (VZ) FiOS TV service, and now the channel's backers are preparing for the possibility of being dropped by Dish Network (DISH), sources tell The Wall Street Journal.

06:45 EDTTQualcomm downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital
FBR Capital downgraded Qualcomm (QCOM) to Market Perform, removed the stock from its Top Picks list and dropped its price target for shares to $72 from $80. FBR said the moves were prompted by a posting on AT&T's (T) website which said the carrier’s version of the GS6 smarphone is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7420 processor with a Shannon 333 modem as opposed to Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform. FBR still expects the Verizon (VZ) and Sprint (S) GS6 versions to sport Qualcomm modems, but it believes the change at AT&T signals Samsung’s "clear intent to utilize proprietary baseband whenever and wherever possible." Shares of chip maker Qualcomm closed Thursday down $1.46 to $67.97.
