08:31 EDTTWCAT&T CEO says net neutrality may end up in Supreme Court, CNBC says
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).

14:00 EDTVIAFCC fines Viacom, ESPN $1.4M after brodcasting EAS tones to promote movie
The Federal Communications Commission fined Viacom (VIA) and ESPN (DIS) $1.4M for misusing the Emergency Alert System warning tones. The cable networks transmitted EAS warning tones for several days in 2013 to promote the movie “Olympus Has Fallen,” which portrayed a terrorist attack on Washington, D.C. Broadcast or transmission of these tones outside an emergency or test violates the FCC’s laws protecting the integrity of the system. The networks admitted that the commercial contained actual EAS codes and appeared multiple times on the networks. In March 2014, the FCC proposed a total fine of $1,930,000 against NBCUniversal (CMCSA), ESPN, and Viacom. NBCUniversal paid its $530,000 fine, but ESPN and Viacom objected and requested reductions. The FCC rejected their arguments and imposed fines of $1,120,000 against Viacom and $280,000 against ESPN. The fines, which differ based on several factors including the number of channels involved and the number of transmissions on each channel, must be paid in 30 days.

11:16 EDTVIAB, VIACBS, Viacom climb following Stifel upgrades
Shares of CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIA, VIAB) are climbing after research firm Stifel upgraded the stocks to Buy from Hold. CBS owns the CBS network and other entertainment properties. Viacom owns a number of cable networks, including MTV and Nickelodeon. WHAT'S NEW: CBS' NFL rights leave it well-positioned to charge cable companies and other TV providers high fees, Stifel analyst Benjamin Mogil wrote in a note to investors today. Meanwhile, the company's strong ratings and lower production costs reduce its risk, Mogil stated. CBS has more opportunities when it comes to selling its content to Internet TV networks such as Netflix (NFLX), Mogil believes. The analyst set a $65 price target on the shares. Meanwhile, Mogil believes that Viacom should benefit from the adoption of ratings measurements other than Nielsen's (NLSN) tools. Viacom has complained that Nielsen's tools have underestimated its ratings by failing to adequately take into account new types of content consumption, the analyst noted. Viacom's recent expansion into new international markets should also improve its performance, Mogil stated. He set an $89 price target on the shares. ANOTHER TO WATCH: Mogil initiated coverage of Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA) with a $41 price target and Buy rating, saying that the company is well-positioned to benefit from its wide range of sports programming. He set a $41 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, CBS advanced 2.75% to $55, Viacom gained 2.5% to $68, and Twenty-First Century Fox rose 0.4% to $34.72.
