14:25 EDTWFC, JPM, CMI, SMarket set to end week lower as IMF, World Bank forecasts weigh on shares
Stocks are set to end the week lower after the IMF reduced its forecast for 2012 global growth and the World Bank cut its estimate for 2012 Asian economic growth. MACRO NEWS: The IMF on Tuesday lowered its forecast for economic growth this year to 3.3% from 3.5%, while the World Bank on Monday reduced its outlook for 2012 Asian growth to 7.2% from 7.6%... On the other hand, some positive U.S. economic data was released, as the government reported that jobless claims had reached a four and a half year low last week, and an index of consumer confidence reached its highest level in almost five years... The euro zone also released relatively upbeat economic data, as the bloc said that its industrial production rose 0.6% month-over-month in August, versus the consensus estimate of a 0.4% decline. COMPANY NEWS: Sprint (S) said that it was in talks that could result in Japanese telecom company Softbank obtaining a majority stake in the American company. Softbank could buy over two-thirds of the Sprint for $12.8B, Reuters had reported earlier... In the financial sector JPMorgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC) both reported higher than expected EPS, although Wells' revenue came in below expectations... On a negative note, engine-maker Cummins (CMI) reduced its full year revenue and EBIT guidance.

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.

13:59 EDTST-Mobile announces 'Un-contract,' 'Carrier Freedom' initiatives
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. Consumers and businesses with the Simple Choice rate plan will find that rates won’t go up as long as they’re a T-Mobile customer and keep their plan − and even customers with unlimited 4G LTE will lock in their rates for a minimum of two years. 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.
