08:36 EDTGASAGL Resources postpones Q3 earnings release
AGL Resources announced that the company is conducting a review of its historical application of accounting guidance primarily related to the timing of non-cash revenue recognition associated with its Georgia infrastructure replacement programs and expects to modify its financial statements. As a result of the additional time required to complete its review, the company is postponing its Q3 earnings release and conference call. The rescheduled date and time will be announced separately and are expected to be on or prior to the due date of the company's Form 10-Q filing for Q3. Importantly, a change in accounting treatment will not affect the company's previously-reported operating cash flows, nor is it expected to impact capital expenditure plans or dividend payments. The company's infrastructure replacement programs are expected to generate the same levels of return as previously communicated, as all amounts will be recovered in accordance with allowed recovery mechanisms. This review relates only to the timing of recognition and does not impact rates charged to customers. The company determined that, in accordance with the accounting principles that govern financial statements, it should not capitalize, nor include within current income, an equity rate of return on assets constructed as part of infrastructure replacement programs until the equity ROR is collected in rates to customers. Management currently expects a reduction to previously reported diluted EPS from continuing operations of approximately 3% for the first six months of 2014. Based on its initial analysis, management currently expects a reduction to previously reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of approximately 3% for the first six months of 2014. The cumulative impact on prior years is expected to be less than 1% of the company's total assets.

09:55 EDTTWXBlackout not 'game changer' for Time Warner, DISH, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo believes the removal of several of Time Warner's (TWX) Turner channels from DISH's (DISH) line-up will not be a "game changer" for either company. Wells notes the majority of Time Warner's affiliate growth comes from TNT and TBS networks, and it does not expect the channel loss to impact DISH's subscriber trends. The firm expects the networks to come back to DISH "eventually."

12:29 EDTTWXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday, though well off their worst levels. The market opened sharply lower following less than stellar quarterly reports from some of the countryís largest corporations and a number of in-focus "momentum" names such as Netflix (NFLX) and eBay (EBAY). The early drop extended the marketís recent declines and put the averages close to correction territory. The market moved off its lows after a regional Fed president, who'd recently been seen as hawkish, said in an interview that the central bank should consider delaying the end of quantitative easing and that it should be more data driven than time driven. The comments were attributed as the catalyst for a reversal that brought the averages all the way back to positive territory, though the market has once again drifted back into negative ground. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims decreased by 23K to 264K last week to hit their lowest level since April 2000. Industrial production rebounded 1.0% in September, beating expectations for a rise of 0.4% and pushing capacity utilization up to 79.3% from 78.7% previously. The Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index fell 1.8 points to 20.7 in October, which was not as low as the expected 19.9 reading. The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index fell 5 points to 54 in October, versus expectations for it to hold steady at 59. Also of significant note, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard, who is not a voting FOMC member though was quoted recently saying that a rate hike might be appropriate as soon as early next year, reversed course this morning and told Bloomberg in an interview that the Fed should consider delaying an end to its quantitative easing program. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Netflix (NFLX) plunged 22% after the company provided lower than expected Q4 profit guidance and reported lower than expected subscriber data. The move after its earnings report last night also follows Time Warner's (TWX) announcement yesterday of plans for a standalone HBO online service and Piper Jaffray saying it believes CBS (CBS) will similarly launch an over-the-top Showtime offering next year... eBay (EBAY) shares slipped nearly 6% after the company missed revenue expectations for the third quarter and lowered its outlook for fiscal 2014. Following the report, analysts at both RBC Capital and CLSA downgraded the stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Chesapeake Energy (CHK), which rose 17% after the company announced that it sold Marcellus and Utica shale assets to Southwestern Energy (SWN) for $5.375B. Shares of the buyer Southwestern, however, fell 8% after the deal announcement. Also lower was Extreme Networks (EXTR), which dropped almost 19% after cutting its first quarter outlook citing significant delays with its North American deals as well as headwinds in Europe. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 28.46, or 0.18%, to 16,113.28, the Nasdaq was down 16.16, or 0.38%, to 4,199.16, and the S&P 500 was down 2.08, or 0.11%, to 1,860.41.
