10:41 EDTDTV, S, TMUS, T, DISHDISH rises after JPMorgan upgrades, sees potential for T-Mobile deal
Shares of satellite broadcaster DISH Network (DISH) are climbing after JPMorgan upgraded the stock, saying that the company has many potential catalysts and its the shares have an attractive risk/reward ratio. WHAT'S NEW: Over the next 18-24 months, DISH's stock could be boosted by a number of events, including the company's acquisition of all or part of T-Mobile (TMUS), JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Such a deal could accelerate the growth of both companies, the analyst contended. Additionally, DISH could rise as a result of partnerships it could form with carriers in order to utilize some of its spectrum, the analyst contended. Alternatively, DISH could conclude to sell or lease other parts of its spectrum, added the analyst. Cusick summarized that DISH has many potential positive catalysts and its shares are unlikely to decline significantly, upgrading the stock to Overweight with a $72 price target. WHAT'S NOTABLE: AT&T (T) recently agreed to buy DISH's satellite broadcasting peer DirecTV (DTV). However, Cusick does not believe that DISH is currently looking to sell itself. Various media reports have claimed that Sprint (S) is in talks about a potential merger with T-Mobile. Reuters said in early June that Sprint agreed to purchase T-Mobile for approximately $40 per share. CNBC's David Faber reported last week, citing sources, that Sprint and T-Mobile have agreed on a $2B break-up fee for their potential tie-up transaction. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, DISH rose 1.3% to $59.75.

According to sources, the FCC could reject Dish Network's (DISH) "attempt to benefit from billions of dollars in small-business discounts" in a wireless license auction, The Wall Street Journal reports. Earlier this year, Dish won $13.3B worth of bids in the auction, and later claimed $3.3B in discounts intended for small businesses. Dish, which said it disclosed its bidding plans in advance, believes its participation in the auction introduced competition to AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ). Reference Link
