08:32 EDTDTV, T, CMCSAComcast a big winner in the AT&T and DirecTV deal, says UBS
UBS believes Comcast (CMCSA) is a big winner in AT&T's (T) acquisition of DirecTV (DTV). The firm believes the deal will lower competitive intensity among U.S. payTV providers and that AT&T will pull back on Uverse to improve profitability and that DirecTV will be less effective over time given AT&T is less nimble. The analyst believes Comcast could enter the wireless market given AT&T's mobile video may be slow to develop and product bundling complements its near-national footprint.

General Motors' (GM) upcoming Cadillac CTS is the only car firmly scheduled to launch in the U.S. with vehicle-to-vehicle communications, or V2V, but the industry has promised that V2V will revolutionize safety and Cisco (CSCO) joined automakers earlier this month to brief the FCC on plans to test airwave sharing soon, said The Wall Street Journal.
