08:57 EDTCHTRAG Holder says Comcast abandoning deal 'best outcome for American consumers'
Comcast (CMCSA) abandoned its plans to acquire Time Warner Cable (TWC) for approximately $45.2B after the Department of Justice informed the companies that it had significant concerns that the merger would make Comcast an unavoidable gatekeeper for Internet-based services that rely on a broadband connection to reach consumers, the DOJ announced. "The companies' decision to abandon this deal is the best outcome for American consumers," said Attorney General Eric Holder. "The Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice has demonstrated, time and again, that it can and will defend the interests of the American consumer no matter the complexity of the issue or the size of the opponent. This is a victory not only for the Department of Justice, but also for providers of content and streaming services who work to bring innovative products to consumers across America and around the world."

13:01 EDTCHTROn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday amid another deluge of earnings reports. Stocks began the session in negative territory and have remained there through the morning before crossing into positive ground right near noon. The averages gapped up after making it back to the green, putting the Nasdaq back above the all-time closing record it achieved in 2000. A question for the afternoon will be whether the average can hold on to set a new all-time closing high fifteen years later. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims inched up 1K to 295K in the week ended April 18, versus the expected 287K first-time claims. Markit's flash manufacturing PMI fell 1.5 points to 54.2 in April, versus expectations for it to hold steady at 55.7. New home sales dropped 11.4% to a 481K rate in March, versus expectations for a less severe 4.5% drop to a 515K rate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Time Warner Cable (TWC) slid about 1% after The Wall Street Journal reported that the FCC's staff recommended a course of action that could derail the company's merger with Comcast (CMCSA). However, research firm Jefferies remained upbeat on Time Warner Cable shares, upgrading the stock this morning and saying that Charter (CHTR) would probably buy the company if the government nixes the Comcast deal... Among members of the Dow that issued earnings reports this morning, Caterpillar (CAT) slid fractionally while 3M (MMM) and Procter & Gamble (PG) each fell about 2%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was ARRIS (ARRS), which jumped 21% after the company agreed to acquire its competitor Pace for aggregate stock and cash consideration of $2.1B. Also higher following their earnings reports were Skechers (SKX), which rose nearly 13%, and Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), which gained 8.5%. Among the noteworthy losers was MobileIron (MOBL), which plunged 22% after the company warned of a Q1 revenue miss and announced the resignation of its CFO. Also lower following their earnings reports were Texas Instruments (TXN), which fell 7%, and General Motors (GM), which declined nearly 4%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 81.31, or 0.45%, to 18,119.58, the Nasdaq was up 22.69, or 0.45%, to 5,057.86, and the S&P 500 was up 10.32, or 0.49%, to 2,118.28.
10:12 EDTCHTRCharter seen as white knight for Time Warner Cable if Comcast deal blocked
The shares of Time Warner Cable (TWC) are declining after The Wall Street Journal reported that the FCC's staff recommended a course of action that could derail the company's merger with Comcast (CMCSA). However, research firm Jefferies remained upbeat on Time Warner Cable shares, saying that Charter (CHTR) would probably buy the company if the government nixes the Comcast deal. WHAT'S NEW: The FCC's staff yesterday recommended that the agency allow an administrative law judge to decide whether Comcast's proposed takeover of Time Warner Cable should be allowed to proceed, according to The Wall Street Journal. Such a move by the FCC would be seen as a strong sign that the agency does not believe that the takeover is in the public interest, the newspaper stated. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Jefferies analyst Mike McCormack upgraded time Warner Cable to Buy from Hold. Assuming the Comcast deal is going to close, Time Warner Cable's stock is worth $193, McCormack wrote. But, even in the unlikely event that the deal is not approved, Charter Communications is likely to step in and buy Time Warner Cable at a similar valuation as that which Comcast agreed to, McCormack predicted. An acquisition by Charter would face less regulatory risk than the Comcast deal, he added. Moreover, if the Comcast deal,is vetoed, Time Warner Cable could return up to $7B of cash to shareholders before holding talks with Charter, wrote the analyst, who set a $193 price target on Time Warner Cable. WHAT'S NOTABLE: John Malone, the chairman of Liberty Media (LMCA), has previously said that Charter would look to buy Time Warner Cable if its deal with Comcast falls through. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Time Warner Cable slipped fractionally to $149.30, Comcast rose 2% to $60 and Charter gained 0.4% to $185.70.
