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).

06:28 EDTDISHViacom downgraded to Sell from Buy at Citigroup
Citigroup downgraded Viacom (VIAB) two notches to Sell from Buy and lowered its price target for shares to $62 from $88. Citi says its new price target assumes a 50% probability that DISH (DISH) drops Viacom's channels. The firm sees 30% share downside risk should such an event occur. Citi lists two potential M&A deals that could offset the downside risk: Viacom acquiring CBS (CBS), which it feels would be neutral for the stock, or another media firm acquiring Viacom, which it feels could drive 20% upside for Viacom shares. Citi assumes a 10% probability of Viacom getting bought out.
