10:11 EDTT, DISH, VZVerizon slips after Citi downgrade on spectrum prices, rising competition
Shares of Verizon (VZ) are falling in early trading after Citigroup downgraded the stock to Neutral from Buy in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Citigroup analyst Michael Rollins downgraded Verizon, citing the higher than expected price the company will have to pay for wireless spectrum and the increased price competition it is facing. Prices for spectrum currently being auctioned by the FCC are running 36% above Rollins' estimates, the analyst wrote. The higher than expected cost of spectrum implies that the wireless carriers will have higher costs, the analyst explained. Meanwhile, increased competition over consumer prices among the carriers could prevent them from profiting from increased data consumption, Rollins believes. National wireless carriers' outlook for 2015 is unfavorable, warned the analyst, who trimmed his price target on Verizon to $51 from $53. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The total provision winning bids in the AWS-3 auction rose to about $33B after round 26, which was up 3.23% from the prior round, according to data posted to the FCC website on Friday. Companies believed to be bidding in the auction other than Verizon include AT&T (T), T-Mobile (TMUS) and U.S. Cellular (USM). This morning, RBC Capital raised its price target on DISH to $81 from $69, citing the current price points of a spectrum auction. The firm views the price points as a conservative valuation proxy for DISH's AWS-4 spectrum holdings. Analysts at Goldman also raised DISH's price target to $96 from $77 to reflect a higher value for the company's spectrum holdings. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Verizon fell 2.2% to $49.12, while DISH Network shares rose 3% to $75.86.

Citi lowered its price target for shares to $51 from $53. The firm keeps a Neutral rating on AT&T (T) with a $34 price target.

06:35 EDTTCalifornia AG announces $23.8M settlement with AT&T
California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris and Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O’Malley yesterday announced a settlement with AT&T to resolve allegations that hundreds of AT&T’s California facilities unlawfully disposed of hazardous waste and material over a nine-year period. As part of the settlement, AT&T will pay $23.8M. In addition, AT&T will spend an estimated $28M over the next five years to implement the enhanced environmental compliance measures required by the settlement. The settlement and proposed judgment, filed in Alameda County Superior Court, requires approval from the court before becoming final. This is the first enforcement action in California against a telecommunications company for its management of electronic waste. If approved by the court, under the final judgment, AT&T must pay $18.8M in civil penalties and costs. An additional $3M will fund supplemental environmental projects furthering consumer protection and environmental enforcement in California, and AT&T will pay a minimum of $2M to enhance its environmental compliance. The telecom provider will be bound under the terms of a permanent injunction prohibiting similar future violations of law.

06:37 EDTDISHCBS, DISH share downside limited with blackout, says Citigroup
Citigroup sees limited share downside for both CBS (CBS) and DISH (DISH) should a blackout result in the companies not renewing their carriage agreement, which expires today. Citi notes shares of CBS are down 3% since the press started reporting about the tenuous negotiations. It estimates CBS' equity value could fall 2% with a blackout, thus it believes the impact is already priced in. Further, Citi sees a minimal impact to DISH from a potential CBS blackout. The firm keeps Buy ratings on both stocks.

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).

After FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, according to several media reports, said that he was looking for a more nuanced solution to the net neutrality issue than the one suggested by the president, Wells Fargo says Wheeler's comments were positive for the telecom sector. The firm thinks the comments suggest that the agency may be open to regulating Internet service providers under Section 706 rather than Title II. Wells believes that any clarity o nthe issue would remove an overhang on telecom stocks it covers. Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) are both telecom companies that are also Internet service providers.
