13:52 EDTCHTRCharter issues statement regarding White House Title II announcement
Charter Communications released the following statement in response to the White House Title II Announcement: "Charter Communications unambiguously supports an open Internet, which is vital for consumers and central to our continued success. The extraordinary growth of broadband service in the United States, which now reaches more than 70 million households, has largely been the result of the current regulatory environment. For these reasons, we strongly oppose the reclassification of broadband as a Title II service under the Telecommunications Act. Efforts to reclassify broadband ignore the fact that the current rules have encouraged billions of dollars of investment in our broadband infrastructure and Americans' access to open, fast, and reliable service has never been greater. Applying 1930's-era, rotary telephone legislation to a 21st century computer technology comes with significant risks to consumers. It is a solution in search of a problem and threatens to undermine continued investment to improve and expand our nation's broadband infrastructure."

12:24 EDTVZ, TWC, CHTR, CMCSAOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were modestly higher at midday. The averages opened mixed, but very close to the flat line, and have continued to drift slowly higher from that point. There is little to stand in the way of the marketís drift, as the economic calendar is quiet, the earnings season is winding down, and the most closely watched geopolitical situations are currently status quo. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., little of note was on the economic calendar. The Federal Reserve's newly introduced Labor Market Conditions Index was flat at 4 in October. The Fed started updating estimates of the LMCI every month beginning with last month. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Netflix (NFLX) advanced about 1% after xxx President Barack Obama publicly urged the Federal Communications Commission to implement the "strongest possible rules" to protect net neutrality. In response, Verizon (VZ) said it supports the open Internet and continues to believe that the "light-touch regulatory approach in place for the past two decades has been central to the Internetís success," adding that it believes the reclassification Obama called for would "apply 1930s-era utility regulation to the Internet" and be a "radical reversal of course" that would threaten great harm to an open Internet, competition and innovation." A number of Internet Service Providers, including Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Charter (CHTR) and Cablevision (CVC), moved lower after Obama weighed in on the hot-button issue. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN), which rose 22% after the company presented data from the ongoing Phase 2 study of its Hepatitis C virus treatment at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, or AASLD. Also higher was Dean Foods (DF), which rose more than 13% after the dairy products distributorís third quarter results, as well as its fourth quarter and full year profit outlook, surpassed analystsí consensus estimates. Among the noteworthy losers was Rayonier (RYN), which dropped 13% after management determined that there was a material weakness in the company's internal controls, restated certain previously made financial statements, and cut its dividend reflecting expectations of reduced cash available for distribution due to lower expected annual harvest levels. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 18.55, or 0.11%, to 17,592.48, the Nasdaq was up 10.77, or 0.23%, to 4,643.30, and the S&P 500 was up 4.01, or 0.2%, to 2,035.93.

08:04 EDTFFord announces partnership with Wind Energy Corporation
Ford Motor Company is collaborating with Wind Energy Corporation to bring a new and innovative source of clean energy to its dealers. Under a pilot program exclusive to Ford, Wind Energy will install wind sail and solar panel systems at four Ford dealerships, a nearly $750,000 investment, to help power dealer facilities. A Windy System is expected to deliver 20,000 kilowatts of electricity annually. That is enough energy to power two average-sized homes for a year or charge a Ford Focus Electric 870 times, Fusion Energi 2,600 times and C-MAX Energi 2,600 times. Using one Windy System will offset nearly 14 tons of greenhouse gases per year.

Half a million replacement ignition switches were ordered by General Motors (GM) almost two months before it alerted federal safety regulators of the issues that led to a recall of millions of vehicles, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing email exchanges between the automaker and Delphi Automotive (DLPH). The email exchanges, which took place in mid-December 2013 between a GM contract worker and Delphi, indicate GM placed an "urgent" order for 500,000 replacement switches on December 18, a day after a meeting of senior executives.
