11:34 EDTSSprint rises on plans to abandon two-year contracts
Sprint shares are higher this morning after the company's chief executive officer said that the carrier plans to move away from two-year contracts. WHAT'S NEW: In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said that the company will stop offering two-year contracts by the end of 2015 in favor of a "smartphone lease" model. Sprint began offering a lease option last year, The Journal noted, and Claure said the carrier is planning to move entirely to that model by the end of the year. As part of its shift, Sprint yesterday unveiled iPhone Forever, a new leasing plan that starts at $22 per month for an iPhone. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a similar move earlier this month, Sprint rival Verizon (VZ) said it would drop phone subsidies and two-year contracts for new customers. T-Mobile (TMUS), another market rival, abandoned contracts over two years ago, leaving AT&T (T) as the only major U.S. carrier still offering to subsidize new smartphone purchases. Separately, Softbank (SFTBF), Sprint's primary stakeholder, disclosed last week that it increased its holdings in the company to approximately 80%, though the company said it does not plan for its stake in the carrier to exceed 85%. Meanwhile, a study released Tuesday by RootMetrics, an independent company that evaluates wireless networks, shows that Sprint is improving its network, having solidified third place nationally in overall performance, surpassing T-Mobile for the second consecutive six-month stretch. PRICE ACTION: Sprint is up 7c, or 1.52%, to $4.67 in morning trading.

07:33 EDTFBPiper's Munster sees virtual reality moving Facebook shares higher
Three themes centering on virtual reality could move shares of Facebook higher over the next three months, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster tells investors in a research note. First up in September, Facebook's Oculus unit will host a developer conference in Los Angeles which will address investor questions around the virtual reality use case, Munster writes. Second, the consumer version of Oculus, called Rift, will be available slightly earlier than investors expect with sales starting in January of next year, Munster believes. And third, based on his analysis on LinkedIn profiles, Munster thinks Facebook is making the most aggressive investment in VR talent. He has increased confidence in the social media giant's long term virtual position and reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock with a $146 price target. Facebook closed yesterday down 49c to $93.93.
