08:16 EDTT, FNSR, CIEN, ALU, ADTN, JDSU, JNPRAT&T wireline spending cut brings risk to vendors, says Jefferies
Jefferies says its research indicates that spending on the wireline side of AT&T (T) took a "significant dip" beginning in April. As a result, the firm sees incremental near-term risk for equipment vendors most exposed to this side of AT&T, namely Ciena (CIEN), Juniper (JNPR), Adtran (ADTN), Finisar (FNSR), JDS Uniphase (JDSU) and to a lesser extent, Alcatel-Lucent (ALU). Jefferies says its contacts have picked up suggestions that AT&T's wireline spending would pick back up in July.

07:20 EDTJDSUJDSUannounces names of new companies, departure of CFO Rex Jackson
JDSU announced yesterday the filing of a Registration Statement on Form 10 with the SEC, in connection with the spinoff of its Communications and Commercial Optical Products business, which will result in two independent, publicly traded companies. JDSU also introduced the new names of the two companies. In addition, the company announced that Rex Jackson, CFO, will depart JDSU September 30, following the expected completion of the spinoff and necessary fiscal year-end filings. Under the plan announced in September 2014, JDSU will spin off its CCOP business, to be named Lumentum Holdings. Lumentum will be a global leader in optical components and subsystems for the telecommunications market, with high growth opportunities in data communications. Alan Lowe will lead Lumentum as CEO. He joined JDSU in September 2007 as senior vice president of the Lasers business and became president of JDSU's newly formed CCOP business segment in 2008. Aaron Tachibana will be Lumentum's CFO. JDSU's Network Enablement, Service Enablement and Optical Security and Performance Products businesses will be renamed Viavi Solutions Inc. at the time of the separation. The Viavi brand is based on the company's ability to deliver the visibility and actionable insight needed to profitably manage the complex transition to next generation networks and services. Tom Waechter, JDSU's current president and CEO, will continue to lead Viavi. Rex Jackson has decided to leave JDSU on September 30, following the expected completion of the separation and the filing of Viavi's Annual Report on Form 10-K. JDSU expects to initiate a search for Jackson's replacement in due course. Current JDSU stockholders will own shares in both corporations following the separation. The spinoff is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions, including the Registration Statement on Form 10 for Lumentum common stock being declared effective by the SEC and certain other conditions described in the information statement included in the Registration Statement and in the agreements to be filed as exhibits to the Registration Statement and other customary matters. JDSU expects all the conditions to the spinoff to be satisfied on or before the distribution date. Approval by JDSU's stockholders is not required for completion of the separation.

16:52 EDTTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street moved in a narrow range for most of the session while remaining near record levels. The Nasdaq was the strongest of the indices, as it continues its march towards 5,000. Crude oil prices fell by over 5% during the regular trading session, but recovered a bit in after-hours trading. The market is on pace to complete its fourth consecutive week of gains and close out the month of February with gains after suffering losses in January. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Consumer Price Index fell 0.7% in January, with the core rate rising 0.2%, versus expectations for the headline CPI to be down 0.6% and the core rate to rise 0.1%.

COMPANY NEWS: The Federal Communications Commission voted 3 to 2 in favor of adopting new open Internet, or "net neutrality," rules. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has proposed that the FCC use its Title II authority to implement and enforce "bright-line" rules to ban paid prioritization and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services. However, Wheeler said his proposal will "modernize" Title II, insuring there will be no rate regulation, no tariffs, and no last-mile unbundling. Major Internet Service Providers, including Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), and Comcast (CMCSA), have opposed the rules, while Netflix (NFLX) has been a strong and vocal supporter of open Internet provisions... Shares of International Business Machines (IBM) slipped $1.94, or 1.19%, to $160.87 after Big Blue held its investor day meeting in NYC. At the meeting, IBM backed its fiscal year profit view but also said that the company now expects currency to impact revenue growth by over 6 points for the full year, which is greater than the impact previously provided based on January 16 spot rates. IBM also said it was shifting $4B into "strategic initiatives," including Big Data, the Cloud, mobile, social and security... Barnes & Noble (BKS) rose $1.67, or 6.89%, to $25.92 after announcing plans to split its Education business from its Retail and NOOK Digital businesses.

The proposed transaction implies total value per share to UIL shareholders of $52.75, including $10.50 per share paid in the form of cash, the companies said. Among the noteworthy losers was Clayton Williams (CWEI), which fell $11.41, or 17.77%, to $52.79 after the company suspended drilling operations in both of its core resource plays, citing low oil prices, and its shares were downgraded at Wunderlich.

13:00 EDTTFCC votes in favor of adopting net neutrality proposals
The Federal Communications Commission voted 3 to 2 in favor of adopting new open Internet, or "net neutrality," rules. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has proposed that the FCC use its Title II authority to implement and enforce open Internet protections, with "bright-line" rules to ban paid prioritization and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services. However, Wheeler said his proposal will "modernize" Title II, insuring there will be no rate regulation, no tariffs, and no last-mile unbundling. Major Internet Service Providers, including AT&T (T), Comcast (CMCSA), and Verizon (VZ), have opposed FCC Chairman Wheeler's proposals to treat Internet service similar to a utility. Other companies that provide Internet services include Time Warner Cable (TWC), CenturyLink (CTL), DIRECTV (DTV), Cablevision (CVC) and Lumos Networks (LMOS). Netflix (NFLX) has strongly supported open Internet provisions. Cogent Communications (CCOI) and Level 3 Communications (LVLT) are facilities-based providers of Internet access and Internet Protocol communications services that are likely to be impacted by FCC rules on net neutrality.

13:56 EDTTAT&T VP critical of Dish auction tactics
AT&T (T) VP of Federal Regulatory Joan Marsh stated in a post to a corporate blog that FCC Auction 97 represents "hard evidence that there is significant continuing interest in licensed spectrum... It didn't matter that it was mid-band spectrum. It mattered only that it was broadband spectrum." Marsh notes that Dish (DISH) won more licenses than any other bidder though "none of that spectrum is currently supporting commercial wireless services," with her suggestion being that "auctions should be designed to ensure that licenses go to those willing to deploy networks – not speculators or stockpilers...The government should continue to place a high priority on allocating new licensed bands to the wireless industry." Marsh continues her analysis of Dish, claiming the double and triple-bidding activity carried out by its two designated entities "circumvented auction activity rules, masked actual demand and distorted the auction," as they were able to win significant allocations while enjoying a 25% small business discount. In response to Dish claims that all companies use DEs, Marsh replies that "in more recent auctions... bidders like AT&T, Verizon (VZ) and T-Mobile (TMUS) had no DE relationships, participated directly and paid full price for their licenses."
