06:20 EDTEMR, NTSC, VZNTS partners with Emerson Network Power to test EMC, receives Verizon NEBS TCWP
National Technical (NTSC) announced it has entered a partnership agreement with Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (EMR), to provide a wide range of commercial testing and regulatory Electromagnetic Compatibility, or EMC, compliance services for product manufacturers. The partnership calls for NTS to oversee operations at Emerson's Network Power internal product testing laboratory in Tempe, AZ. Through the NTS-Emerson partnership, the Tempe, AZ test lab, which was previously used for Emerson's internal testing needs only, will initially be open to outside product manufacturers for purposes of EMC testing services provided by NTS. The partnership provides for further expansion of the test laboratory in the future, including additional testing and certification services such as Product Safety and Environmental/Dynamics testing services. In addition to the commercial testing partnership, NTS and Emerson have also achieved certification of the Emerson lab for the Verizon NEBS Testing Certification Witnessing Program, or TCWP, enabling the lab to test and certify equipment for usage in the Verizon telecom network. This new GR1089 capability provides direct support for approval of Emerson's own line of telecom equipment as well as that of other telecom equipment manufacturers in the region.

08:10 EDTEMREmerson reports orders growth of 5% for three months end October
Emerson disclosed in a regulatory filing that its trailing three-month order trends remained solid, with growth reflecting mixed global market conditions and heightened currency volatility, as seen in the significant strengthening of the U.S. dollar. In total, underlying orders growth was robust, led by strength in Process Management and Climate Technologies, and benefiting from a large project in Network Power. Strong momentum in North America continued, supported by energy investment and inventory growth in the HVAC industry ahead of the upcoming regulatory changes effective January 1, 2015. Demand across other regions was mixed. Currency translation deducted 5 percentage points. Excluding the large Network Power project and the inventory build in the HVAC industry, underlying orders grew at a mid-single-digit rate, reflecting solid market conditions.

10:11 EDTVZVerizon slips after Citi downgrade on spectrum prices, rising competition
Shares of Verizon (VZ) are falling in early trading after Citigroup downgraded the stock to Neutral from Buy in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Citigroup analyst Michael Rollins downgraded Verizon, citing the higher than expected price the company will have to pay for wireless spectrum and the increased price competition it is facing. Prices for spectrum currently being auctioned by the FCC are running 36% above Rollins' estimates, the analyst wrote. The higher than expected cost of spectrum implies that the wireless carriers will have higher costs, the analyst explained. Meanwhile, increased competition over consumer prices among the carriers could prevent them from profiting from increased data consumption, Rollins believes. National wireless carriers' outlook for 2015 is unfavorable, warned the analyst, who trimmed his price target on Verizon to $51 from $53. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The total provision winning bids in the AWS-3 auction rose to about $33B after round 26, which was up 3.23% from the prior round, according to data posted to the FCC website on Friday. Companies believed to be bidding in the auction other than Verizon include AT&T (T), T-Mobile (TMUS) and U.S. Cellular (USM). This morning, RBC Capital raised its price target on DISH to $81 from $69, citing the current price points of a spectrum auction. The firm views the price points as a conservative valuation proxy for DISH's AWS-4 spectrum holdings. Analysts at Goldman also raised DISH's price target to $96 from $77 to reflect a higher value for the company's spectrum holdings. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Verizon fell 2.2% to $49.12, while DISH Network shares rose 3% to $75.86.

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).
