05:40 EDTS, TMUS, CHTR, TWC, VZMergers 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

Netflix said it can achieve U.S.-like margins in its international business. During its Q2 earnings interview, Netflix said it sees a dip in free cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015 as company expands original content. NEWS: Netflix launched in several countries in the past quarter, including France, Germany, Gelgium Austria, Switzerland, and Luxemburg.

08:13 EDTVZCorvex says Crown Castle, Verizon deal would 'diversify' revenues
Corvex said, "A Verizon (VZ) tower deal would diversify Crown Castle's (CCI) revenues and deepen the company's relationship with arguably the U.S.'s strongest wireless company and operator of the country's most robust network. As the largest and most-focused U.S. tower operator and the largest operator of legacy carrier portfolios, Crown Castle could be the best strategic acquirer of Verizon's tower assets. That does not mean the company will be best positioned financially to provide the highest and best bid though. Based on recent press articles, the potential sale price for the Verizon towers could be approximately $6B. However, we strongly believe that the company should not issue any equity at recent prices, and certainly not to acquire more tower assets at premium prices when Crown Castle continues to trade at a material discount to both transaction multiples and publicly traded peers."
