14:30 EDTBIDMarcato filing confirms request for Sotheby's buyback, potential CFO search
Marcato Capital Management reported a 9.53% stake in Sotheby's and disclosed in a regulatory filing that it sent a letter to the company's board. In its letter, Marcato states: "In the 18 months since Marcato’s initial investment in Sotheby’s, we have outlined numerous opportunities both publicly and privately for Sotheby’s to use its capital more intelligently to create shareholder value. Despite our dialogue with you and other members of the board, a substantial portion of Sotheby’s invested capital continues to earn a poor return or worse yet, earns no return at all...We submit that any new CEO’s first order of business may need to include the recruitment of a new CFO who will serve the interests of shareholders rather than defend misguided policies of the past...Today, we present a specific and straightforward roadmap that we believe can immediately release $12.33 per share without materially affecting the company’s continued earnings power. With this increased flexibility, we recommend the immediate repurchase of $500M of Sotheby’s shares...As one of Sotheby’s largest shareholders, we also look forward to a thorough discussion with its new CEO regarding the importance of intelligent capital allocation in creating value for shareholders."
13:56 EDTTMUSAT&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."

10:00 EDTJCPJ.C. Penney move higher attributed to real estate speculation
The move higher in shares of J.C. Penney (JCP) is being attributed to speculation the company may look to monetize its real estate assets. The speculation seems to be originating from a Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) employee's webpage showing the retailer as a client. The JLL employee, Stephen Bridges, specializes in "assisting industrial users with the lease, purchase, and sale of real estate." It is not clear when Penny became a client of JLL. Shares of Penny rallied to a high of $8.50, and are trading up 16c to $8.29 in early trading. Reference Link
