16:19 EDTDTV, TMUS, T, S, DISH, VZFCC proposes rules that may limit joint bidding in spectrum auctions
Roger Sherman, Wireless Telecommunications Bureau Chief, stated in a blog post that FCC Chairman Wheeler circulated a proposal to open new opportunities for small and growing businesses in the mobile marketplace with the purpose of providing "innovative, smaller companies the opportunity to build wireless businesses that can spur additional investment and bring more choices to consumers." The Notice of Proposed Rule Making being circulated proposes to update FCC rules in a way that "recognizes – and confronts – the challenges new entrants face in entering the wireless industry," Sherman said, adding "Perhaps most importantly, the NPRM recognizes the challenge of entering into a marketplace in which more than 95% of existing customers are served by the top four providers." Sherman wrote: "The proposal addresses another important issue – also linked to the trend towards consolidation in the wireless industry. We must make sure that the biggest providers are not able to limit broad participation in the spectrum auction. As promised in the Mobile Spectrum Holdings Report and Order, we now seek comment on whether and how we should restrict the ability of wireless companies to combine their bids during an auction." Companies that may be impacted by FCC efforts to limit joint bidding on spectrum include Sprint (S), T-Mobile (TMUS), Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), DirecTV (DTV) and DISH (DISH). Reference Link

Sprint says it will more than double its company-owned retail footprint tomorrow by opening 1,435 Sprint-RadioShack stores. In last week’s transaction, General Wireless, an affiliate of Standard General LP, acquired 1,743 RadioShack stores. Sprint has agreed with Standard General to be co-tenants in 1,435 of those stores, with Sprint being the primary brand in marketing materials and signage. Sprint will occupy roughly one third of the retail space at these existing RadioShack locations. The phone carrier added, "The expansion of Sprint’s retail stores also means significant opportunities for the company to invest in local communities by adding nearly 3,500 new jobs. In the coming months, Sprint will actively recruit a skilled workforce to fill quality full- and part-time positions, helping to make local communities stronger."

The Weather Channel, which is owned by a consortium made up of NBCUniversal (CMCSA) and private equity firms Bain Capital and The Blackstone Group (BX), was dropped last month from Verizon's (VZ) FiOS TV service, and now the channel's backers are preparing for the possibility of being dropped by Dish Network (DISH), sources tell The Wall Street Journal. Though The Weather Channel is facing a "major" threat to its core business, the fees it collects from the pay-TV providers, the sources say that no formal sale by the company's owners is under way.

06:45 EDTVZ, T, SQualcomm downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital
FBR Capital downgraded Qualcomm (QCOM) to Market Perform, removed the stock from its Top Picks list and dropped its price target for shares to $72 from $80. FBR said the moves were prompted by a posting on AT&T's (T) website which said the carrier’s version of the GS6 smarphone is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7420 processor with a Shannon 333 modem as opposed to Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform. FBR still expects the Verizon (VZ) and Sprint (S) GS6 versions to sport Qualcomm modems, but it believes the change at AT&T signals Samsung’s "clear intent to utilize proprietary baseband whenever and wherever possible." Shares of chip maker Qualcomm closed Thursday down $1.46 to $67.97.
