JPMorgan notes the AWS-3 spectrum auction continued on Tuesday with the aggregate value of licenses with bids at $16.4B, up from Monday's $8.9B and compared to the reserve price of $10.6B that the FCC set for the entire auction. The firm views the rise in prices as negative for telecom carriers that are spending more than expected, namely AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ), and possibly T-Mobile (TMUS) and US Cellular. It views the prices as positive for independent spectrum owners like DISH (DISH) and Globalstar (GSAT), as well as tower companies American Tower (AMT), SBA Communications (SBAC) and Crown Castle (CCI).

08:29 EDTNWSANews Corp completes acquisition of Move, Inc
News Corp announced that it has successfully completed its acquisition of Move, Inc. Move is a provider of online real estate services and operates a network of sites, including realtor.com, the official website for the National Association of Realtors. The previously announced tender offer by a subsidiary of News Corp for all of the outstanding shares of Move common stock at a price of $21.00 per share expired as scheduled at the end of the day, 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on November 13, 2014. Excluding shares tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery, a total of approximately 34,299,586 shares were validly tendered into and not withdrawn from the tender offer, representing, together with the shares owned by News Corp and its subsidiaries, approximately 83.1% of Move’s outstanding shares. As a result, News Corp, through its subsidiary, has accepted for payment and will promptly pay for all such validly tendered shares pursuant to the terms of the tender offer. Following its acceptance of the tendered shares, News Corp completed the acquisition by causing the merger of its subsidiary with and into Move without a vote of Move’s stockholders, pursuant to Section 251(h) of the Delaware General Corporation Law. Upon completion of the merger, Move became an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of News Corp. As a result of the merger and in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement, all eligible Move shares not tendered into the tender offer were cancelled and converted into the right to receive $21.00 per share in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, the same price per share offered in the tender offer. As a result of the acquisition, Move shares ceased to be traded on the NASDAQ Stock Market. REA Group Limited, in which News Corp owns a 61.6% interest, has entered into a definitive agreement with News Corp to acquire a 20% stake in Move. The transaction is expected to be completed on November 17.
