14:06 EDTDISH, CLWR, VZ, T, VODDISH retreats after Verizon announces plans to sell spectrum
Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) announced this morning plans to conduct an open sale process for all of its 700 MHz A and B spectrum licenses in an attempt to rationalize its spectrum holdings. The licenses cover dozens of major cities across the country, as well as a number of smaller and rural markets, the company stated. In a note to investors this afternoon, Goldman Sachs said Verizon's decision is likely an attempt to appease regulators, making it less likely that AT&T (T) or Verizon (VZ) will look to buy spectrum in the future. As a result, Verizon's decision is negative for companies looking to sell spectrum, including DISH Network (DISH), argued Goldman, which maintains a Sell rating on shares of DISH. Meanwhile, research firm Jefferies called Verizon's move surprising, and added that the spectrum which Verizon is looking to sell is arguably the best spectrum available. Verizon's decision may cause the sale of spectrum by Clearwire (CLWR) to be delayed, Jefferies added. As a result, Clearwire's stock could have difficulty gaining momentum until more details about Verizon's spectrum deal become known, the firm predicted. In mid-afternoon trading, DISH shares dropped $1.36, or 4.27%, to $30.47, while Clearwire shares fell 10.05% to $1.70.

08:13 EDTVZCorvex says Crown Castle, Verizon deal would 'diversify' revenues
Corvex said, "A Verizon (VZ) tower deal would diversify Crown Castle's (CCI) revenues and deepen the company's relationship with arguably the U.S.'s strongest wireless company and operator of the country's most robust network. As the largest and most-focused U.S. tower operator and the largest operator of legacy carrier portfolios, Crown Castle could be the best strategic acquirer of Verizon's tower assets. That does not mean the company will be best positioned financially to provide the highest and best bid though. Based on recent press articles, the potential sale price for the Verizon towers could be approximately $6B. However, we strongly believe that the company should not issue any equity at recent prices, and certainly not to acquire more tower assets at premium prices when Crown Castle continues to trade at a material discount to both transaction multiples and publicly traded peers."
