16:51 EDTVZVerizon says little progress in contract talks with East landline employees
Verizon said, "After nearly seven weeks of challenging negotiations, Verizon is preparing for all potential scenarios following the expiration of its contracts with the CWA and IBEW, covering more than 37,000 Wireline employees in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The contracts expire at midnight, Aug. 1, 2015.While the company presented union leaders with a comprehensive initial offer on June 22 that included a solid wage increase, union leaders countered with a series of proposals that did virtually nothing to advance the progress of negotiations." "Employees are eligible to receive up to five weeks of paid vacation time, not including paid sick days and paid excused days," said Marc Reed, Verizon's chief administrative officer. "While we're willing to consider all offers, union leaders came back with counterproposals that would offer up to 19 additional days off, including new holidays, employee birthdays, more vacation days and additional sick days. That sort of proposal is unrealistic and out-of-touch in today's marketplace."

08:46 EDTBUDAB InBev reports Q2 normalized EPS $1.21, consensus $1.35
Reports Q2 revenue $11.05B, consensus $11.57B. Total volumes declined by 2.2% in Q2, with beer volumes down 2.1%, and non-beer volumes down 2.9%. The decline in beer volumes was driven mainly by difficult FIFA World Cup comparables, especially in Brazil and Europe, and challenging trading conditions in several countries, partly offset by good volume growth in Mexico and Latin America South. Volumes of Focus Brands declined by 2.0% in Q2. Volumes of its three global brands grew by 6.4% in the quarter, with Budweiser up 6.0%, Corona up 7.8% and Stella Artois up 4.9%.
07:58 EDTPCARPACCAR downgraded to Equal Weight on peak cycle concerns at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley downgraded PACCAR to Equal Weight from Overweight with a new price target of $61. The firm believes NAFTA Class 8 truck cycle is peaking and now forecasts a 10% decline in 2016 and 2017 industry sales as fleet growth remains muted and replacement demand slows. As a result, Morgan Stanley now sees a lack of positive earnings momentum for PACCAR and downgraded shares given downside risk.

14:39 EDTWYNNWynn Resorts technical comments before results
The stock has been in a long stable downtrend since July of last year. Leading up to earnings there has been a pause in that downtrend and a small base is being put in at the $95 area. If the news is a bullish surprise, the first resistance level of importance is at $102.83, the 50-day moving average. It would take a breakout above this level to put the shares back on a bullish footing. Next upside objectives would be at $106.98 and then at $109.95. If the news is bearish, the low of the recent base at $95 coud be taken out on the downside. Next potential downside objectives would then be at the $92.23, $88.74, and $86.22.
11:06 EDTVZSprint introduces Family Share Pack plan
With more data than T-Mobile (TMUS), and with significant savings over Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T), Sprint (S) introduces the new Sprint Family Share Pack. Families switching to Sprint get four lines, unlimited talk, text and 10GB of high-speed data while on the Sprint network for $100/month starting July 31. Sprint says its new plan will save families $480/year over Verizon and $720/year over AT&T for virtually the same 10GB of data. Sprint says that 10GB is more than double the high-speed data in T-Mobile’s family plan.

AOL (AOL), currently owned by Verizon (VZ), said that there are more advertisements on television than ever, making it increasingly difficult for marketers to break through in an already cluttered arena, the Wall Street Journal reports. AOL said that the reported rate of TV ad impression growth is misleading, though TV networks are managing to push in more ads into half hour and hour long shows, the report says. Reference Link

10:47 EDTVZUBS says YouTube paid service could be $1B business
Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) revenue could increase by about $1B or more if it decides to offer a paid, ad free version of its YouTube website in the U.S., UBS wrote in a note to investors today. The firm made the estimate based on a survey it conducted of U.S. consumers. WHAT'S NEW: YouTube remains well-positioned to benefit from the growth of online video, UBS analyst Eric Sheridan stated. After UBS conducted a survey of U.S. adult consumers, Sheridan reported that the survey found that 27% of U.S. consumers would probably subscribe to a paid, ad free version of YouTube. According to Bloomberg, YouTube has decided to launch such a service in coming months. If only 5% of U.S. YouTube users buy subscriptions to the service, Google's revenue would rise by about $943M, Sheridan estimated. Following the survey, the analyst is more confident that Google will meet his revenue estimates, which exceed consensus levels. Specifically, he predicted that Google's revenue for the second half of 2015 would come in at $32.4B, versus the consensus outlook of $31.8B, while its 2016 revenue would be $72.2B, compared with the consensus estimate of $69.7B. Sheridan kept a $750 price target and Buy rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Other companies that are significantly exposed to online video include Netflix (NFLX), Facebook (FB) and AOL, which has been acquired by Verizon (VZ). PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Google Class A shares were little changed at $657.55.
