07:14 EDTACNAccenture reports Q2 new bookings $9.4B
"Based on our continued momentum and very strong performance in the first half, we are raising our business outlook for revenues for the full fiscal year," said the company.
07:12 EDTACNAccenture sees FY15 adjusted EPS to $4.66-$4.76, consensus $4.75
Accenture now expects GAAP EPS to be $4.61-$4.71, including the positive impact of its increased revenue outlook, offset by negative impact of revised foreign-exchange assumption, as well as negative impact of settlement charge. Company’s previously guided EPS was $4.66-$4.80. Company raises FY15 net revenue growth in local currency 8%-10% from 5%-8%. FY15 outlook now assumes forex impact (8%); previous assumption was (5%). In May, company will record non-cash settlement charge of approximately $60M, pre-tax, as a result of a current offer to former employees to receive a voluntary one-time, lump-sum cash payment from company’s U.S. pension plan. The payment will settle the company’s pension obligations. This settlement charge will reduce company’s fiscal 2015 GAAP EPS by approximately 5c and full-year GAAP operating margin by approximately 20 basis points. Accenture now expects GAAP operating margin for the full fiscal year to be 14.2%-14.4%, compared with previously guided 14.4%-14.6%. Excluding the settlement charge, operating margin for full fiscal year expected to be 14.4%-14.6%, an expansion of 10 to 30 basis points from fiscal 2014. Now expects operating cash flow for fiscal 2015 to be $3.85B to $4.15B, compared with $3.95B to $4.25B previously; continues to expect property and equipment additions to be $450M; and now expects free cash flow to be $3.4B to $3.7B, compared with $3.5B to $3.8B previously. The company continues to expect to return at least $3.8B to its shareholders in fiscal 2015 through dividends and share repurchases. The company continues to expect its annual effective tax rate to be in the range of 26% to 27%. Accenture is now targeting new bookings for fiscal 2015 in the range of $33B to $35B, compared with $34B to $36B previously, reflecting its revised foreign-exchange assumption.

08:52 EDTSSprint CEO may make 'unfortunate misstep,' says FBR Capital
FBR Capital says its vendor checks indicate new Sprint CEO Marcello Claure has undertaken a strategic review of the company's competitive positioning. The firm believes Truco, the strategic advisory group brought in by Claure, is advocating a "premature network rip and replace program." FBR says this approach of converting Sprint's 1.9GHZ spectrum to uplink would be an "unfortunate misstep and a missed opportunity to embrace the technology shift underway." The firm sees risk of Sprint under-investing and weakening its franchise value further. It has a Market Perform rating on the name.

Today, during an event held to announce Un-carrier 9.0 − Un-carrier for Business − T-Mobile (TMUS) unveiled two new major Un-carrier initiatives for consumers. First, with T-Mobile’s new "Un-contract," customers will now have more certainty in their wireless pricing than ever before.

The Un-carrier also launched "Carrier Freedom," a new move where T-Mobile will now cover all outstanding phone and tablet payments up to $650 per line when customers from AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) or Sprint (S) switch to T-Mobile.
