16:59 EDTPCS, M, CQB, RBGPY, DIS, DTEGY, DF, AVP, MELIOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were down for the day. Stock futures were lower in early trading leading to a sharply lower open for the broader market. The weakness was attributed to continuing concern over Europe's debt crisis and political events in Greece. The averages began the day down roughly 1% but began to reverse their course following a report that Europe’s bailout fund will pay the next installment of aid to Greece, which was later confirmed by the EFSF. The averages briefly turned mixed in the afternoon but were unable to make the trip all the way back into the green to break the market's losing streak… ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., wholesale inventories rose 0.3% in March, versus the expected increase of 0.6%. In Europe, Spanish 10-year bond yields rose above 6% and more reports indicated that efforts to form a new government in Greece were expected to fail, putting the country's bailout deal in doubt and renewing concerns about Greece intentionally exiting or being forced off the euro. However, the EFSF stated that it would approve the latest bailout payment due to Greece in spite of the ongoing political dealings... COMPANY NEWS: Disney (DIS) shares gained nearly 2% after its earnings beat expectations, while Macy's (M) slid almost 4% in spite of earnings that also came in above consensus... Meanwhile, Avon Products' (AVP) shares were up 9.26% after JAB Holdings, which owns Coty, sold a substantial portion of its stake in Reckitt Benckiser (RBGPY) in order "to raise cash for other investment opportunities, including Avon… MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were MetroPCS (PCS), up $0.94, or 14.33%, to $7.50, after Bloomberg reported that Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) was in talks with the company on a potential T-Mobile deal, and Dean Foods (DF), up $1.43, or 11.24%, to $14.15, after reporting a rise in Q1 profits of nearly 50% and raising both the company’s Q2 and FY12 EPS view. Noteworthy losers included Chiquita Brands (CQB), down $2.32, or 28.93% to $5.70, after its earnings fell short of consensus and it warned that it sees 2012 continuing to be "a challenging year," and Mercado Libre (MELI), down $10.91, or 12.40%, to $77.08, after reporting disappointing Q1 revenues... INDICES: The Dow lost $97.03, or 0.75%, to $12,835.06; the Nasdaq fell $11.56, or 0.39%, to $2,934.71; and the S&P 500 dropped $9.14, or 0.67%, to $1,354.58.

14:00 EDTDISFCC fines Viacom, ESPN $1.4M after brodcasting EAS tones to promote movie
The Federal Communications Commission fined Viacom (VIA) and ESPN (DIS) $1.4M for misusing the Emergency Alert System warning tones. The cable networks transmitted EAS warning tones for several days in 2013 to promote the movie “Olympus Has Fallen,” which portrayed a terrorist attack on Washington, D.C. Broadcast or transmission of these tones outside an emergency or test violates the FCC’s laws protecting the integrity of the system. The networks admitted that the commercial contained actual EAS codes and appeared multiple times on the networks. In March 2014, the FCC proposed a total fine of $1,930,000 against NBCUniversal (CMCSA), ESPN, and Viacom. NBCUniversal paid its $530,000 fine, but ESPN and Viacom objected and requested reductions. The FCC rejected their arguments and imposed fines of $1,120,000 against Viacom and $280,000 against ESPN. The fines, which differ based on several factors including the number of channels involved and the number of transmissions on each channel, must be paid in 30 days.

06:24 EDTDTEGYT-Mobile warns of unsustainable costs against cellphone giants, Re/code says
T-Mobile (TMUS) owner Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) claims Verizon (VZ) and AT&T's (T) wealth makes true competition difficult, reports Re/code, citing statements made at Germany's DLD conference. Deutsche Telekom CEO Tim Hoettges stated the dominance of AT&T and Verizon allowed them to make huge bids at the latest midband spectrum auction to further their market lead. Hoettges also stated he was "intrigued" by last year's unsuccessful merger talks with Sprint (S), and warned that T-Mobile's $4B-$5B investment requirements per year are unsustainable. Reference Link
