16:20 EDTAPOL, S, HLF, ININ, DISH, HA, NUVA, CLWROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher as Alcoa's (AA) report and outlook sparked optimism regarding the Q4 earnings season that is just beginning. The averages drifted for much of the session, moving lower just after midday and again losing some ground prior to the close, but held onto enough of their gains to finish the day in positive territory... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the EIA's weekly petroleum status update showed that inventories of crude oil built up but by fewer barrels than expected, while gasoline and distillates built up by more than expected. In Europe, industrial output in Germany grew slightly in November but fell short of expectations, as the 0.2% adjusted monthly rise missed expectations for a 1.0% increase... COMPANY NEWS: Herbalife (HLF) dominated the headlines through the day, as Dan Loeb's hedge fund Third Point disclosed an 8.24% stake in the company this morning, sending shares sharply higher. Herbalife continued to trade higher until a Dow Jones headline said the SEC will open an investigation of the company, sending shares temporarily down almost $4. Shares of Herbalife, however, reversed again and finished the day up $1.60, or 4.17%, to $39.95 ahead of tomorrow's much anticipated investor meeting to address Bill Ackman's short thesis... Shares of Clearwire (CLWR) gained 21c, or 7.19%, to $3.13 after the company got an unsolicited $3.30 per share buyout bid from Dish Network (DISH). Sprint (S), which already owns a majority stake in Clearwire and has a deal in place to acquire the remaining interest in the company, saw its shares fall 9c, or 1.51%, to $5.88 following the news... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NuVasive (NUVA), which rose $1.70, or 10.79%, to $17.46 after reporting preliminary revenue that beat expectations and having its stock upgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital. Also higher were shares of Interactive Intelligence (ININ), up $6.12 or 18.60%, to $39.02 after the company reported Q4 orders were up 119% over last year and gave an FY13 revenue view above consensus. Among the noteworthy losers was Apollo Group (APOL), down $1.61, or 7.69%, to $19.33 following its Q1 earnings report last night. Also lower were shares of Hawaiian Holdings (HA), down 46c, or 6.52%, to $6.59 following a two notch downgrade to Underperform from Buy at Bank of America Merrill Lynch... INDICES: The Dow was up 61.66, or 0.46%, to 13,390.51; the Nasdaq was up 14.00, or 0.45%, to 3,105.81; and the S&P 500 was up 3.87, or 0.27%, to 1,461.02.

13:56 EDTDISHAT&T VP critical of Dish auction tactics
AT&T (T) VP of Federal Regulatory Joan Marsh stated in a post to a corporate blog that FCC Auction 97 represents "hard evidence that there is significant continuing interest in licensed spectrum... It didn't matter that it was mid-band spectrum. It mattered only that it was broadband spectrum." Marsh notes that Dish (DISH) won more licenses than any other bidder though "none of that spectrum is currently supporting commercial wireless services," with her suggestion being that "auctions should be designed to ensure that licenses go to those willing to deploy networks not speculators or stockpilers...The government should continue to place a high priority on allocating new licensed bands to the wireless industry." Marsh continues her analysis of Dish, claiming the double and triple-bidding activity carried out by its two designated entities "circumvented auction activity rules, masked actual demand and distorted the auction," as they were able to win significant allocations while enjoying a 25% small business discount. In response to Dish claims that all companies use DEs, Marsh replies that "in more recent auctions... bidders like AT&T, Verizon (VZ) and T-Mobile (TMUS) had no DE relationships, participated directly and paid full price for their licenses."
