14:09 EDTDISHDISH negative reaction after auction seems a bit overdone, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo estimates, based on information on the FCC's website, that two DISH Network (DISH) related vehicles won $10B net and $13.3B gross of AWS-3 spectrum net. The firm views the negative reaction in DISH shares following the release of the auction details as "a bit overdone," noting that total amount DISH spent appears to be $2B more than the firm expected, which it does not see as a "thesis changer." Wells also said DISH managed to block Verizon (VZ) out of the key markets of New York, Chicago, and Boston with its wins of some large paired H-Block and I-Block licenses in those areas. The firm has an Outperform rating on DISH shares.

08:31 EDTDTVAT&T CEO says net neutrality may end up in Supreme Court, CNBC says
AT&T (T) Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson believes the net neutrality debate may have to be settled by the Supreme Court, reports CNBC, citing a CNBC interview on Wednesday from the World Economic Forum in Davos. Stephenson stated, "We need a neutral Internet... I think everyone agrees with that. Where everyone is getting stuck now is going beyond that." Stephenson also stated the neutrality debate will not affect his company's decision to bid $49B for DirecTV (DTV), though he believes a quick decision from the FCC could quicken Comcast's (CMCSA, CMCSK) $45B negotiations for Time Warner Cable (TWC).
