05:40 EDTVZ, TMUS, TWC, S, CHTRMergers show how junk bonds have returned, WSJ reports
For years following the financial crisis, the thought of junk-bond-fueled mega deals would have been unthinkable, but no more, reports the Wall Street Journal. Now, investors' healthy appetite may be tested in coming months if two major corporate takeovers take place. Sprint's (S) possible $31B deal for T-Mobile US (TMUS) and Charter Communication's (CHTR) unsolicited $37B bid for Time Warner Cable (TWC) show that both would-be buyers have credit ratings below investment grade and each could sell enough bonds to break Sprint's record $6.5B junk-bond sale, set last year, the Journal says.Reference Link

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.

09:59 EDTTWC, CHTRCharter may have interest in Cablevision 'at some point,' says Detwiler
Detwiler Fenton believes there is truth to last week's reports of Charter (CHTR) being in talks to acquire Bright House Networks. In addition, the firm says its checks indicate Charter may have interest in buying Suddenlink Communications and Cablevision (CVC) "at some point" as a part of a lager acquisition strategy. Detwiler adds Charter's potential deal strategy assumes Comcast's (CMCSA) bid for Time Warner (TWC) wins regulatory approval. Should the deal not get approved, Detwiler believes Charter will turn its attention back to Time Warner.

13:59 EDTS, VZ, TMUST-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.

09:04 EDTTMUST-Mobile offers data rollover to prepaid customers
In a blog post Monday, T-Mobile Chief Marketing Officer Andrew Sherrard stated "This month, we’re taking Data Stash even further. Starting Sunday March 22, Data Stash will start rolling out to Simple Choice prepaid customers. Every single one of our prepaid voice customers with a qualifying Simple Choice plan will start out with a Starter Stash with up to 10 GB of 4G LTE data. And when that’s all used up, they’ll start rolling forward their unused data for use up to a full year. Automatically and at no extra charge... Last year, wireless customers asked to keep their unused data more than 40,000 times − and that was just on Twitter alone." Reference Link
