15:04 EDTCMCSAHesse as reviewer may be Comcast 'worst-case scenario,' CT Financial says
Cleveland State University Law professor Christopher Sagers said that in some ways having Renata Hesse oversee the DOJ's review of the proposed merger of Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC) could be a “worst-case scenario” for the companies, citing her experience and reputation. If Comcast is seen as merging to thwart Time Warner Cable from launching an over-the-top streaming service, then "that’s virtually a horizontal merger" which would be a "very serious theory of harm," according to the professor.

13:41 EDTFTREarnings Watch: Verizon shares up marginally since Q4 results
Verizon Communications (VZ) is expected to report first quarter earnings before the market open on Tuesday, April 21, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Verizon is a holding company providing communications, information and entertainment. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 95c on revenue of $32.27B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 89c-$1.00 on revenue of $31.74B-$32.97B. LAST QUARTER: Verizon reported fourth quarter adjusted EPS of 71c against estimates for 72c on revenue of $33.19B against estimates for $32.69B. For Q4 in Wireless, the company reported 2.1M net retail connections; 2.0M net retail postpaid connections, including net additions of 672,000 postpaid phones; retail postpaid churn of 1.14%; 108.2M total retail connections and 102.1M total retail postpaid connections. In Wireline, it reported 4.1% year-over-year quarterly increase in consumer revenues. Verizon reported Q4 retail postpaid ARPA, or average revenue per account, increased 1.0% over Q4 of 2013 to $158.82 per month, and 3.9% over the full year. Verizon reported Q4 FiOS consumer revenue growth of 11.1%; 6.6M FiOS Internet subscribers, with 145K net additions; 5.6M FiOS Video subscribers, with 116K net additions. For 2015, Verizon expects consolidated revenue growth of at least 4%. It sees sustained profitability with a consolidated adjusted EBITDA margin at a level consistent with full-year 2014 performance. It also expects strong free cash flow generation with consolidated capital spending of $17.5B-$18.0B. On February 5, Frontier Communications (FTR) announced a definitive agreement with Verizon under which Frontier will acquire Verizon’s wireline operations that provide services to residential, commercial and wholesale customers in California, Florida and Texas, for $10.54B in cash. On the same day, Verizon announced a $5B accelerated share-repurchase program and agreed to lease the rights to over 11,300 of its company-owned wireless towers to American Tower (AMT), which will also purchase approximately 165 Verizon towers, for a total upfront payment of approximately $5B. American Tower will have exclusive rights to lease and operate over 11,300 Verizon cell towers, a significant majority of the towers the company currently owns. In addition, Verizon will sell approximately 165 towers outright. On March 10 at the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference, CFO Fran Shammo said there was “not much change” in the competitive environment since Q4-end, Q1 volume should return to "more normal levels," and Q1 churn is likely to be elevated from year ago, but not "something that is going to be concerning." PRICE ACTION: Verizon’s shares are up marginally since the company's Q4 report. Over the past twelve months, they are up about 3.3%. In afternoon trading ahead of Tuesday's Q1 report, Verizon’s shares are up 0.5%.
