08:49 EDTTAT&T still sees Q3 wireless postpaid churn 1% or lower
AT&T is holding a meeting with investors today in Atlanta. In advance of that meeting, the company is providing an update on its wireless operational results for Q3, along with details on progress in two emerging lines of business in its Mobility group: connected cars and AT&T Digital Life. For Q3, AT&T still expects wireless postpaid churn to be 1% or lower. The company expects total AT&T Next take rates to be approximately 50% and to have over 400,000 postpaid smartphone gross adds from customers who “bring their own mobile devices." AT&T also expects approximately 58% of its postpaid smartphone base to be on Mobile Share Value plans at the end of the third quarter. AT&T expects meaningful subscriber growth for its connected car services in the next three-to-five years. As of today, AT&T provides either wholesale or retail connectivity to nearly 2 million U.S. registered passenger vehicles with about 500,000 added in the third quarter. In 2015, AT&T expects to connect nearly half of new wireless-connected U.S. passenger vehicles. The company expects to serve more than 10 million such vehicles by the end of 2017.AT&T expects revenues from its connected cars to be driven initially by wholesale customer relationships with auto manufacturers, with the opportunity to develop a direct retail relationship with drivers. Wholesale ARPU, paid for by auto manufacturers, is expected to be in the low single digits and retail ARPU, paid for by the car owners, is expected to be similar to that of a tablet on an AT&T Mobile Share Value Plan. In addition, AT&T Digital Life, the company’s home security and automation service, has approximately 140,000 subscribers at the end of the third quarter with more than half of those added in the last two quarters. As of today, The Digital Life Smart Security plan ranges from $40 a month for a basic security plan to $70 a month with security and automation packages. Additional installation and equipment fees also may apply. Approximately a third of customers that sign up for Digital Life security plans are also adding automation products, with the majority of those choosing video or door-control products.

As part of the relationship, GTI is working closely with AT&T to define the technical capabilities required to enable customers to interact seamlessly and responsibly through their electronic devices with digital product promotional materials (e.g., video game trailers, special discounts, etc.) located on store shelves and within identified product communication zones. To accomplish this, the company is utilizing AT&T Network Services, such as AT&T Business Fiber, so GameStop stores have reliable and scalable speeds.
08:05 EDTAAPLeBay could be worth $62/share on sum-of-the-parts, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray says it still estimates the total valuation of eBay's two divisions at around $62 per share on a sum-of-the-parts basis. Piper believes Marketplace could be more attractive as an acquisition candidate post separation, which it notes investors have been thinking about since the Alibaba (BABA) IPO. The firm thinks competition from Apple Pay (AAPL) and Google Wallet (GOOG) will likely add some uncertainty to PayPal’s standalone valuation. Piper has a Neutral rating on eBay. The stock is up 9% to $57.25 after announcing it will spin off PayPal into a separate publicly traded company.

06:11 EDTAAPLEU says Apple tax deal with Ireland not at arm's length
In a letter to the Irish government, the European Commission said it is of the opinion that Apple's tax deal with Ireland does not "comply with the arm’s length principle." It added, "The Commission is of the opinion that through those rulings the Irish authorities confer an advantage on Apple. That advantage is obtained every year and on-going, when the annual tax liability is agreed upon by the tax authorities in view of that ruling...In the light of the foregoing considerations, the Commission’s preliminary view is that the tax ruling of 1990 and of 2007 in favour of the Apple group constitute State aid according to Article 107(1) TFEU. The Commission has doubts about the compatibility of such State aid with the internal market. The Commission has therefore decided to initiate the procedure laid down in Article 108(2) TFEU with respect to the measures in question. The Commission requests Ireland to submit its comments and to provide all such information as may help to assess the aid/measure, within one month of the date of receipt of this letter."

16:17 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower and suffered their worst day in nearly two months, with market participants pointing to a number of reasons for the broad-based weakness. Shares of Apple (AAPL) were a drag on the market, and particularly on the Nasdaq, as the tech giant slid after a number of reports pointed to customer issues with its new iPhone 6 and an update to its mobile operating system. Cautious comments about rates by a noted Federal Reserve "hawk" may have also contributed, as well as reports that Russia may respond to U.S. and EU sanctions with a new law that will allow it to seize foreign property within the country. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 12K to 293K in the week ended September 20, though this was below the consensus forecast for 296K new claims. Durable goods orders fell 18.2% in August following a 22.5% surge in July. However, excluding transportation, orders were up 0.7%, which was a bit above the forecast for a 0.6% increase. Additionally, the head of the Dallas Federal Reserve, Richard Fisher, said that the central bank may start raising rates in the spring of 2015, which is earlier than most market watchers expect. Also, a Reuters report that Russia has drafted a law that would allow it to seize foreign assets on Russian territory to compensate those impacted by sanctions or who have had their own property seized outside of Russia garnered significant attention. COMPANY NEWS: Apple declined $3.88, or 3.81%, to $97.87 after reports yesterday from various tech blogs said the company pulled a new update of iOS 8 after complaints that the new software was crashing cellular service and Touch ID on users' phones. Other reports indicate the new iPhone 6 is reportedly bending in some owners' pockets, though the company told CNBC's John Fortt that it has only received nine customer complaints regarding bent phones. Also, Barron's reported that Apple insiders, including CEO Tim Cook, have sold over 1.4M shares of Apple stock this month. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Swift Transport (SWFT), which gained $1.83, or 9.56%, to $20.98 after the company backed its Q3 earnings outlook and said it was "cautiously optimistic" about the trends it has seen as a result of its strategic decision regarding driver compensation. Also higher was IGI Laboratories (IG), which rose $1.36, or 18.26%, to $8.81 after the company acquired the regulatory rights and related documents and records for 18 drug products from AstraZeneca (AZN). Among the noteworthy losers was BlackBerry (BBRY), which fell 71c, or 6.76%, to $9.80 the day before it reports on its quarterly results. Ahead of tomorrow morning's report, BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis downgraded shares of the smartphone maker to Hold from Buy, saying the company's results "may prove underwhelming." Also lower were shares of adhesives maker H.B. Fuller (FUL), which fell $6.30, or 14.32%, to $37.68 after the company's third quarter results and fourth quarter profit outlook missed analysts' consensus estimates. INDEXES: The Dow plunged 264.26, or 1.54%, to 16,945.80, the Nasdaq dropped 88.47, or 1.94%, to 4,466.75, and the S&P 500 declined 32.31, or 1.62%, to 1,965.99.

14:29 EDTAAPLEarnings Preview: BlackBerry downgraded at BGC ahead of tomorrow's report
BlackBerry (BBRY) is expected to report second quarter earnings before the open on Friday, September 26, with a conference call scheduled for 8:00 am ET. BlackBerry manufactures and markets mobile devices, such as smartphones, and creates software and services for those devices. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are expecting losses per share of (16c) on revenue of $949.64M. The consensus range is (36c)-(4c) for EPS on revenue of $855.9M-$1.16B, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: On June 19, BlackBerry reported a loss per share, excluding certain items, of (11c), versus analysts' consensus estimate of a (26c) per share loss. The company's revenue of $966M was a bit higher than the consensus expectation near $963M. The smartphone maker said that it had recognized revenue on about 1.6M of its smartphones, up from about 1.3M during the previous quarter. Moreover, it said that it was close to reaching the breakeven point on hardware sales and added that it expects its subscriber numbers to be steady going forward. BlackBerry should be profitable sometime in fiscal 2016, company CEO John Chen stated. NEWS: On July 21, BlackBerry announced that it has named Marty Beard as its Chief Operating Officer. Prior to the appointment, Beard had been chairman and CEO of LiveOps. After Apple (AAPL) and IBM (IBM) announced an enterprise partnership, BlackBerry CEO John Chen told Financial Times on July 24 that his company was in early talks with companies about working together in parts of the enterprise market, though he declined to comment on who the discussions have been with. Last month, BlackBerry announced that it has named Sandeep Chennakeshu to lead a new business unit to be called BlackBerry Technology Solutions, or BTS. The BTS business unit comprises BlackBerry's technology assets, including QNX, Project Ion, Certicom and Paratek as well as BlackBerry's patent portfolio. Two weeks ago, BlackBerry announced that it has acquired Movirtu, a provider of virtual identity solutions for mobile operators that allows multiple numbers to be active on a single device. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed, though the next day Wells Fargo wrote that it thinks the deal brings a degree of differentiation to BlackBerry's mobile device management solutions and will make BYOD better for both companies and employees. Yesterday, BlackBerry launched the Passport, a high-end smartphone featuring a large square touch screen and new QWERTY touch-enabled keyboard. Inspired by actual passports, the device was "purpose-built for productivity-driven business professionals," the company stated. STREET RESEARCH: On the day of BlackBerry's last quarterly report, BGC Financial said that it thought that the negative thesis on BlackBerry was falling apart, at least in the short-term. However, this afternoon BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis downgraded shares of BlackBerry to Hold from Buy, saying the company's quarterly results tomorrow "may prove underwhelming." Gillis expects BlackBerry's revenue declines to continue in the current quarter and noted that his estimate is below consensus. He has an $11 price target for the shares. Also today, MKM Partners stated in a note to investors that it believes BlackBerry's new Passport phone is for "hardcore entrenched BB users" and unlikely to make much of a difference. The firm kept a Neutral rating on the stock with a $10 price target. PRICE ACTION: On the day of its last report, shares of BlackBerry climbed 9.65% to close at $9.09. Since the day after that initial pop, the stock has gained about another 10%. In afternoon trading, BlackBerry was down 51c, or almost 5%, to $10.00.

06:55 EDTAAPLApple launches new iOS 8 phones with 'kill switch'
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon revealed that new iPhones sold with iOS 8 will include Apple’s theft deterrent system, Activation Lock, as a default setting. This marks the first time in the history of the smartphone industry that theft deterrent technology is available by default on new products. In addition to being standard on the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, newly-sold iPhones will also prompt users to upgrade to iOS 8. Additionally, the new operating system can also be installed on most previous models of iPhones. As co-chairs of the Secure Our Smartphone, or S.O.S. Initiative, Attorney General Schneiderman and District Attorney Gascon led the effort to call on the wireless industry to address the global rise in smartphone thefts. The ultimate goal of SOS is for every mobile device to have a “kill switch” on by default. A default solution is imperative because it ensures that the device will be worthless to thieves.
