16:38 EDTSFXEOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
The Wall Street averages had a relatively quiet open and remained in a tight range for most of the session. The market moved to the high end of its range by mid-afternoon, which pushed the Dow and S&P to new highs and the Nasdaq ever closer to its 5,000 level. There was little momentum behind the move and the averages eventually faded, closing nearly unchanged for the session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., new home sales slipped 0.2% to a 481K annual pace in January, which was better than the expected 2.3% decline to a 471K rate. The DOE petroleum inventory report showed crude stockpiles grew by 8.4M barrels in the week of February 20, versus expectations for a 4M barrel increase. In China, HSBC and Markit's flash purchasing managers' index for February came in at 50.1, which was above the consensus outlook of 49.7 and represented a four month high. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) dropped $3.82, or 9.92%, to $34.67 after the PC, printer and server maker reported lower than expected Q1 revenue and cut its FY15 EPS view and free cash flow outlook, citing separation costs and foreign exchange headwinds. However, analysts at Citigroup, Bernstein, and Brean Capital all recommended buying the stock on weakness in separate notes to investors today. Later in the day, Bloomberg reported, citing sources, that HP is in talks to make its biggest acquisition in several years by potentially acquiring Aruba Networks (ARUN), sending shares of the WiFi equipment maker up $3.86, or 21.0%, to $22.24. Shares of Aruba competitor Ruckus Wireless (RKUS) also gained 66c, or 5.89%, to $11.86 after Bloomberg's report on potential M&A in their space... Chesapeake Energy (CHK) slid $1.90, or 9.56%, to $17.98 after reporting worse than expected earnings amid the recent plunge in energy prices and announcing lower capital spending plans for 2015. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Benefitfocus (BNFT), which jumped $10.85, or 47.24%, to $33.82 after reporting Q4 earnings and disclosing that Marsh & McLennan (MMC) subsidiary Mercer took a 9.9% stake in the company. Also higher was SFX Entertainment (SFXE), which gained $1.09, or 29.46%, to $4.79 after the company’s Chairman and CEO, Robert Sillerman, offered to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of the company not already owned by him for $4.75 per share in cash. SFX Entertainment confirmed that it received the proposal and established a special committee to review and negotiate the nonbinding offer. Among the noteworthy losers was Lumber Liquidators (LL), which plunged $18.15, or 26.39%, to $50.63 after reporting Q4 earnings per share and revenue that missed consensus expectations, warning on its associated call that an upcoming "60 Minutes" piece may cast the company in an unfavorable light, and disclosing in its annual report that the Department of Justice indicated in recent communications that it is contemplating seeking criminal charges under the Lacey Act. Also lower following their earnings reports were shares of Republic Airways (RJET), which fell $2.17, or 14.49%, to $12.81, and LendingClub (LC), which dropped $3.14, or 13.28%, to $20.51. INDEXES: The Dow added 15.38, or 0.08%, to 18,224.57, the Nasdaq slipped 0.98, or 0.02%, to 4,967.14, and the S&P 500 dropped 1.62, or 0.08%, to 2,113.86.

13:56 EDTTMUSAT&T VP critical of Dish auction tactics
AT&T (T) VP of Federal Regulatory Joan Marsh stated in a post to a corporate blog that FCC Auction 97 represents "hard evidence that there is significant continuing interest in licensed spectrum... It didn't matter that it was mid-band spectrum. It mattered only that it was broadband spectrum." Marsh notes that Dish (DISH) won more licenses than any other bidder though "none of that spectrum is currently supporting commercial wireless services," with her suggestion being that "auctions should be designed to ensure that licenses go to those willing to deploy networks – not speculators or stockpilers...The government should continue to place a high priority on allocating new licensed bands to the wireless industry." Marsh continues her analysis of Dish, claiming the double and triple-bidding activity carried out by its two designated entities "circumvented auction activity rules, masked actual demand and distorted the auction," as they were able to win significant allocations while enjoying a 25% small business discount. In response to Dish claims that all companies use DEs, Marsh replies that "in more recent auctions... bidders like AT&T, Verizon (VZ) and T-Mobile (TMUS) had no DE relationships, participated directly and paid full price for their licenses."
