The Federal Communications Commission plans to propose new "net neutrality" rules on Thursday that would block Internet service providers from discriminating against specific websites, but would allow providers to charge content companies for preferential treatment of their traffic, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing a person familiar with the proposal. Netflix (NFLX) CEO Reed Hastings had been outspoken in the past in his opposition of the FCC's previous net neutrality rules. Broadband ISPs include Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Cablevision (CVC), Verizon (VZ), and AT&T (T). Reference Link

Charter (CHTR) and Comcast (CHTR) are close to a deal where Charter would acquire nearly 4M extra subscribers, reports the Wall Street Journal. The two companies are in advanced talks that would be contingent on Comcast's proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable (TWC), where Comcast would divest subscribers so its share of the pay-TV market would not rise above 30%. According to people familiar with the situation, Charter would likely acquire 1M-1.5M through a straight out sale and it would take an equity stake in a Comcast spinoff holding a few more million subscribers.

12:39 EDTNFLXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday amid a number of big deals and a much talked about proposed deal in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as another wave of earnings reports. The market opened quietly but on the positive side of the ledger as investors pored over the multitude of quarterly reports issued after the close last night and earlier today. Near noon the market stood near its session highs and is pointing toward its sixth consecutive positive close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales slipped 0.2% to a 4.59M rate in March, versus expectation for them to have fallen 1% to a 4.56M rate. The Richmond Fed manufacturing survey for April had a reading of 7, beating the consensus forecast for a reading of 2. COMPANY NEWS: Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) teamed with Bill Ackman's hedge fund Pershing Square to make a hostile takeover offer for Allergan (AGN), sending shares of both companies higher. Allergan confirmed it received the offer of $48.30 in cash and 0.83 shares of Valeant stock for each of its own shares, which it said it will evaluate with the help of its advisers. Analysts' opinion on the fallout varied, with one firm suggesting Allergan could pursue its own takeover of Shire (SHPG) or Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ) as a defense, and another saying a rival big pharma company, such as Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) or Merck (MRK), could launch a competing bid for Allergan. Shares of Allergan led all gainers on the S&P 500, rising 16%, while Valeant shares gained more than 6%... A number of other big drug makers made news with a string of deals, as Novartis (NVS) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) both reshaped their companies via a trio of agreements. Novartis will acquire GSK's oncology products for a $14.5B payment and up to $1.5B contingent future payments, Novartis will sells its Vaccines business, excluding flu, to GSK for $7.1B plus royalties, and the two agreed to tie-up their consumer healthcare businesses through a joint venture. In a separate transaction, Novartis agreed to divest its Animal Health Division to Eli Lilly (LLY) for about $5.4B. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were streaming video service Netflix (NFLX), which advanced almost 6%, and motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson (HOG), which rose 8%. Companies that slid following their earnings reports included printer maker Lexmark (LXK), which fell over 11%, and Pentair (PNR), which dropped almost 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 106.77, or 0.65%, to 16,556.02, the Nasdaq was up 45.95, or 1.11%, to 4,167.50, and the S&P 500 was up 11.59, or 0.62%, to 1,883.48.

ALSO HIGHER: Allergan (AGN), up 17% after Valeant (VRX) confirms proposal to combine with the company for $48.30 and 0.83 shares of stock. Valeant is up 5% following its confirmation of the news that broke last night... GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), up 4.5% after agreeing to sell oncology products for $14.5B to Novartis (NVS) and buy Novartis' Vaccines business, currently excluding its flu business, for $7.1B plus royalties. Novartis shares trading in New York are also up 1% following the deals... Revance Therapeutics (RVNC), up 20% after announcing positive results from RT002 Phase 1/2 study... Facebook (FB), up 2% following upgrade at Credit Suisse. DOWN AFTER EARNINGS: Xerox (XRX), down 4%... Lexmark (LXK), down 4.8%.

NOTABLE: Allergan (AGN), up 20%, and Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX), up 9.1%, both advanced after The Wall Street Journal reported that activist investor Bill Ackman is teaming up with Valeant to make a bid for Allergan. Following the report, Ackman's Pershing Square filed a 13D with the SEC disclosing a 9.7% stake in Allergan and outlining an agreement with Valeant. The agreement, among other things, said that Valeant plans to make a bid for Allergan comprised of $15B of cash and a to-be-determined amount of Valeant stock. The filing also showed that Ackman began building a position in Allergan in late February, and at that time entered an agreement with Valeant forming a new, jointly-owned entity through which to acquire a position in Allergan. CNBC's David Faber reported that Valeant is expected to officially make a hostile bid for Allergan by tomorrow. UP AFTER EARNINGS: Netflix (NFLX) gained 6.3% after reporting profits that beat expectations on revenues that were in-line with expectations. The streaming internet video service also reported that U.S. subscribers grew by 2.25M in the first quarter, with its international subscriber base expanding by 1.75M for the period. DOWN AFTER EARNINGS: Rambus (RMBS) fell 7.5% after providing a second quarter revenue outlook that fell short of expectations, with the company adding that its revenue outlook, "includes expectations that the company will sign new customers for patent as well as solutions licensing." Rambus' first quarter results, however, came in better than expected, and the company also reaffirmed its fiscal 2014 revenue outlook.

"If the Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC) merger is approved, the combined company’s footprint will pass over 60% of U.S. broadband households, after the proposed divestiture, with most of those homes having Comcast as the only option for truly high-speed broadband. As DSL fades in favor of cable Internet, Comcast could control high-speed broadband to the majority of American homes. Comcast is already dominant enough to be able to capture unprecedented fees from transit providers and services such as Netflix (NFLX). The combined company would possess even more anti-competitive leverage to charge arbitrary interconnection tolls for access to their customers. For this reason Netflix opposes this merger," the company said.

Stocks on Wall Street were higher after Fed Chair Janet Yellen struck a dovish tone in comments to the Economic Club of New York, which was in step with the minutes of the last FOMC meeting released last week. The Fed also released its latest Beige Book report, which indicated that economic activity increased in most regions after the severe winter weather that gripped much of the country to start the year had let up. Corporate earnings season continues to pick up steam, with Dow members IBM (IBM) and American Express (AXP), as well as Google (GOOG), reporting after the market close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts in March were up 2.8% from the prior month to a rate of 946K, versus expectations for an increase of 7%. Building permits were down 2.4% to a 990K rate, versus expectations for a decline of 0.4%. Industrial production rose 0.7% in March, which was ahead of the 0.5% forecast. The Fed's Beige Book report indicated that economic activity rebounded and strengthened in most regions over the last six week. In China, data showed its economy grew 7.4% in the first quarter from a year earlier, providing relief after recent signs that growth in the world's second largest economy has been slowing. COMPANY NEWS: Bank of America (BAC) fell 26c, or 1.59%, to $16.13 after the bank reported a first quarter loss of 5c per share, largely due to $6B in legal charges. Excluding the impact of this litigation expense, which was related to a previously announced settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and other legacy mortgage-related matters, the banking major reported earnings that appeared to beat estimates... Yahoo (YHOO) gained $2.14, or 6.26%, to $36.35 after its quarterly report, with investors reacting most positively to the 66% year-over-year revenue growth reported by Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba, in which Yahoo holds a 24% stake. Yahoo's quarterly profit and revenue also beat expectations and the company's CEO Marissa Mayer said during its earnings webcast that the search giant's core business has moved from declining growth to stable to modest growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was CBS Outdoor (CBSO), which jumped $1.94, or 6.69%, to $30.96 after the IRS approved a plan for the company, which was just last week spun-off from its parent CBS (CBS), to convert into a real estate investment trust, or REIT. Other companies seeking REIT status, including Equinix (EQIX), Iron Mountain (IRM) and Lamar Advertising (LAMR), also rose following CBS' announcement. Also higher was drugmaker Zogenix (ZGNX), up 48c, or 20.51%, to $2.82 after confirming that a judge prevented a ban on sales of the company's Zohydro pain medication in Massachusetts.

12:45 EDTGOOGEarnings Preview: Google shares down 8% since last earnings report
Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is expected to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, April 16 with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Google is a global technology company that focuses on Internet search, cloud computing, and advertising technologies. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $6.39 on revenue of $15.52B. The consensus range is $5.83-$6.96 for EPS, and $14.94B-$16.12B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Google reported Q4 EPS $12.01 against estimates of $12.26 on revenue of $16.86B against estimates of $16.75B. Google reported Q4 paid clicks up 31% and average cost-per-click decreased approximately 11%. The company also reported Q4 Sites revenue $10.55B and Q4 Network revenue $3.52B. NEWS: Google effectively split its stock with a dividend distribution of Class C shares, which began trading in early April. In the past quarter, the company reached a deal with a European Union after sending an improved commitments proposal in context of the ongoing antitrust investigation on online search and search advertising. Google also announced that it resolved the copyright litigation with Viacom (VIA, VIAB). The company announced partnerships and agreements with VMware (VMW), Cisco (CSCO), and OmniVision (OVTI) as well as acquisitions of SlickLogin, Titan Aerospace and parts of Green Throttle Games. STREET RESEARCH: Cantor said Google is being boosted by product listing ads, which are expected to increase the company's 2014 ad revenue by $1B. Atlantic Equities and Bernstein said Google's weakness provides a buying opportunity, citing strong year-over-year revenue growth at "core Google." Bernstein added predictions that Google Play, Computer and App Engine, and Apps for Enterprise and government will become multi-billion dollar businesses. Ahead of the Q1 earnings, Susquehanna said the results should beat expectations due to continued website growth, PLAs, and early benefits from Enhanced Campaigns and YouTube. PRICE ACTION: Google shares have dropped over 8% since the first day of trading following the company's Q4 report. In Tuesday midday trading ahead of Q1 report, Google shares are down a little over 2%.
