15:48 EDTKMBKimberly Clark technical comments before earnings
The shares have been in a strong uptrend since the market lows of October 2014, gaining nearly 20% in that time. On the chart there is no indication of bearish concerns, with the stock having hit a new lifetime high today at $119. Without established resistance overhead, next objectives on positive news would be at common option strike prices such as $120 and $125. If there is risk to the shares it may be in the form of adverse currency moves, given the recent strength of the dollar. The stock has been bid-up given its relatively high yield as bond yields have dropped, but it is trading at a premium historically. If there is a disappointment, support levels to watch as potential downside objectives may be at $117.19, $115, and $111.86.

AT&T (T) Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson believes the net neutrality debate may have to be settled by the Supreme Court, reports CNBC, citing a CNBC interview on Wednesday from the World Economic Forum in Davos. Stephenson stated, "We need a neutral Internet... I think everyone agrees with that. Where everyone is getting stuck now is going beyond that." Stephenson also stated the neutrality debate will not affect his company's decision to bid $49B for DirecTV (DTV), though he believes a quick decision from the FCC could quicken Comcast's (CMCSA, CMCSK) $45B negotiations for Time Warner Cable (TWC).
