11:16 EDTENTR, CMCSAEntropic advances after analysts talk Comcast design wins
Entropic Communications (ENTR) is climbing after research firms DA Davidson and Wunderlich Securities reported that the company had obtained important design wins from Comcast (CMCSA). In a note to investors earlier today, DA Davidson analyst Aalok Shah wrote that information obtained from the FCC indicated that Entropic had obtained a number of design wins from Comcast for the cable company's IP set-top box, the X13-H. Specifically, Entropic will provide the connectivity and System-on-a-Chip components of the product, the analyst reported. Entropic may receive $8-$10 for each X13-H that Comcast deploys, Shah wrote. Given Comcast's large customer base, the analyst believes that a substantial number of the product may be deployed. The device may begin rolling out in the first half of next year, added Shah, who reiterated a Buy rating on Entropic. Wunderlich also reported that the first version of the X13-H, which was approved by the FCC, would utilize Entropic's connectivity solution and its System-on-a-Chip components. The firm, which maintained a Buy rating on Entropic, views the wins as positive but believes it's too early to speculate on their financial impact. In mid-morning trading, Entropic rose 29c, or 5.54%, to $5.43.

07:38 EDTCMCSATWC bonds reflect debt concerns from Charter deal, WSJ says
Time Warner Cable (TWC) 30-year bonds due in September 2042 rose 11.7% following the announcement of its deal to be acquired by Charter (CHTR), but that was still down about 16% from where they traded before it became clear the company’s prior pact with Comcast (CMCSA) was in doubt, reported The Wall Street Journal, citing data from MarketAxess. The bond prices reflect investors’ anxiety over the fact that Time Warner Cable’s debt will grow from about $23B to $61.5B-$65.7B, depending on how much cash investors choose in the cash-and-stock deal with Charter, though TWC's other reported suitor, Altice (ATCEY), was viewed as potentially planning to saddle it with even more debt, the Journal added.

General Motors' (GM) upcoming Cadillac CTS is the only car firmly scheduled to launch in the U.S. with vehicle-to-vehicle communications, or V2V, but the industry has promised that V2V will revolutionize safety and Cisco (CSCO) joined automakers earlier this month to brief the FCC on plans to test airwave sharing soon, said The Wall Street Journal. However, cable and telecom companies are pressuring carmakers to give up a part of the airwaves marked for V2V to be available for broader use, the report added. Publicly traded automakers include Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), Honda (HMC), Toyota (TM) and Volkswagen (VLKAY), while cable and telecom companies include Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), Sprint (S), T-Mobile (TMUS), Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC) and Charter (CHTR).
