11:12 EDTDTVFCC stops 'informal clock' for review of AT&T, Comcast proposed deals
Federal Communications Commission disclosed in a notice on its website that a number of commenters filed a motion for an extension of time to file replies in Docket 14-57, which is the review of the application of Comcast (CMCSA) for approval of its proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable (TWC). Among other points, the commenters argue that certain third-party programmers “do not want any of the interested parties’ outside counsel or experts to view [their programming contracts],” the FCC noted. "We agree with these commenters that their current inability to review Highly Confidential Information that has been submitted in these dockets significantly hampers their ability to meaningfully comment and participate in these proceedings, in both Docket 14-57 and Docket 14-90. Accordingly, we are suspending the pleading cycles and stopping our 180-day informal time clock in both dockets," the FCC stated. Docket 14-90 refers to AT&T's (T) proposed purchase of DIRECTV (DTV).

13:09 EDTDTVEarnings Preview: AT&T to benefit from strong iPhone 6 demand, Wells Fargo says
AT&T (T) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, October 22, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. AT&T is a global telecommunications company offering wireless and long distance services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 64c on revenue of $33.24B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 59c-66c on revenue of $31.77B-$34.34B. LAST QUARTER: AT&T reported second quarter EPS of 62c against estimates for 63c on revenue of $32.6B against estimates for $33.22B. On its Q2 earnings report, the company forecast FY14 EPS growth at the low end of a mid-single digit range, compared to consensus of $2.62. It sees: FY14 consolidated revenue growth in the 5% range, versus consensus $133.93B; FY14 free cash flow in the $11B range; FY14 capital expenditures remaining in the $21B range. In Q2, AT&T reported the following: total branded smartphone net adds, both postpaid and prepaid, of 576,000; total branded tablet net adds of 250,000; 366,000 postpaid tablet net adds; postpaid churn of 0.86%. On September 25, DirecTV (DTV) stockholders voted overwhelmingly to approve DIRECTV’s proposed merger with AT&T. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been light in the weeks leading up to AT&T's Q3 earnings report. On September 15, Wells Fargo said AT&T should particularly benefit from strong Apple (AAPL) iPhone 6 demand. After Apple reported that over 4M iPhone 6 units were pre-ordered in the first 24 hours of eligibility, Wells Fargo said that it believed strong demand for the phones will be positive for all of the wireless carriers, but particularly for AT&T because of its strategic decision to focus on its early upgrade "Next!" program. The firm maintained its Outperform rating on AT&T. PRICE ACTION: AT&T’s shares have fallen approximately 4% since the company's Q2 report, but they did manage to make a 52-week high of $37.48 in late July. In afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow’s Q3 report, AT&T’s shares are up 0.5%.

07:24 EDTSHLDSears board approves rights offering
Sears announced that the company’s board of directors has approved a rights offering allowing its stockholders to purchase up to $625M in aggregate principal amount of 8% senior unsecured notes due 2019 and warrants to purchase shares of its common stock. This rights offering will generate up to an additional $625M in proceeds, if it is fully subscribed and closes as planned, with the proceeds to be used for general corporate purposes. The subscription rights will be distributed to all stockholders of record of the company, and every stockholder will have the right to participate on the same terms in accordance with its pro rata ownership of the company’s common stock, except that holders of the company’s restricted stock that is unvested as of the record date are expected to receive cash awards in lieu of subscription rights. In the rights offering, the company anticipates that holders of its common stock, other than holders of restricted stock that is unvested, will receive subscription rights on a pro rata basis based on shares of common stock held at the close of business on October 30, the record date for the rights offering. Each subscription right will entitle the holder thereof to purchase, at a subscription price equal to the principal amount of each note, one unit, consisting of an 8% senior unsecured note due 2019 in a principal to be determined and a number of warrants equal to that principal amount divided by the strike price for the warrants, with each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of the company’s common stock at a strike price of $28.41, the closing market price on October 17. The warrants will be exercisable for a period of five years following the offering. Upon the closing of the rights offering, the components of the units will immediately separate from one another such that the senior unsecured notes and warrants will constitute separate securities and will be transferable separately. The subscription rights will be transferable and are expected to be listed and traded on the NASDAQ. The senior unsecured notes will be transferable but will not be listed for trading on any exchange. The warrants will be transferable, and the company intends to apply to list the warrants for trading on the NASDAQ. Holders of subscription rights who fully exercise all of their subscription rights may also make a request to purchase additional units through the exercise of an over-subscription privilege, although we cannot assure investors that any over-subscriptions will be filled.
