07:19 EDTVZSpectrum auction positive for DISH, Globalstar, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan notes the AWS-3 spectrum auction continued on Tuesday with the aggregate value of licenses with bids at $16.4B, up from Monday's $8.9B and compared to the reserve price of $10.6B that the FCC set for the entire auction. The firm views the rise in prices as negative for telecom carriers that are spending more than expected, namely AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ), and possibly T-Mobile (TMUS) and US Cellular. It views the prices as positive for independent spectrum owners like DISH (DISH) and Globalstar (GSAT), as well as tower companies American Tower (AMT), SBA Communications (SBAC) and Crown Castle (CCI).

Reports Q4 revenue $3.2B, consensus $3.32B.

Consolidated tax expense for Q4 was negatively impacted by the effects of changing tax rates relating to certain of the company's international pension plans. This impact was substantially offset by the positive effects relating to the reassessment of certain international tax exposures and the resulting reversal of approximately $4.0M of accrued interest expense.

14:02 EDTJECJacobs Engineering technical comments before earnings
The stock has underperformed in the prior three months, trading down 10%. The trend was decidedly bearish in the front half of the period, but since the market lows of mid-October has modified to a sideways consolidation. In a longer-term view the recent price action has been part of a much larger downtrend since price peaked in late 2013. There is a potential bearish flag when viewed on a 5-year graph, with the flag being formed by the recent price consolidation. On bearish news, a breakdown below the low of the flag at $47 would trigger the pattern. Downside potential if the pattern triggers and completes is to the $35 area. If the news is better than current bearish expectations would suggest, the key for price would be breaking out of the top of the flag at $49. If that happens the pattern would be voided. Additional upside objectives would be at $50.56, $51.65, and $53.28 depending on the degree of positive surprise.

After FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, according to several media reports, said that he was looking for a more nuanced solution to the net neutrality issue than the one suggested by the president, Wells Fargo says Wheeler's comments were positive for the telecom sector.

Wells believes that any clarity o nthe issue would remove an overhang on telecom stocks it covers. Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) are both telecom companies that are also Internet service providers.
