16:30 EDTSKXSkechers sees momentum carrying into 2015
The company said, "The continuous record revenue quarters in 2014 and the strong growth in all of our key business segments is evidence of the relevancy and demand for Skechers footwear worldwide. The more than 50 percent increase in our backlogs at the end of September and the strong sales during the first few weeks of October give us confidence that the momentum we are experiencing now will continue for the remainder of the year and into 2015. We are continuing our retail expansion and plan to open an additional 10 to 15 Company-owned Skechers stores before the end of the year, in addition to the 22 that opened in the third quarter and the five that have already opened this month. We also plan to open another 35 to 45 Skechers stores through our international distributor and franchise partners before the end of the year—which will bring us to the 1,000 store milestone. We are also improving our international efficiencies with the opening of a new distribution facility in Chile in the third quarter and the completion of phase one of the automation of our European Distribution Center in Belgium in the fourth quarter. With our relevant product and advertising, market share gain, and solid financial position, including, $440.8 million in cash, the Company is well positioned for continued growth. Though the fourth quarter is historically our smallest sales quarter for our international division, we remain comfortable with the analysts’ current consensus for both revenue and earnings. Given the strength of our backlogs for the first quarter of 2015, we anticipate top-line growth to be 15 to 20 percent.”

11:12 EDTTFCC stops 'informal clock' for review of AT&T, Comcast proposed deals
Federal Communications Commission disclosed in a notice on its website that a number of commenters filed a motion for an extension of time to file replies in Docket 14-57, which is the review of the application of Comcast (CMCSA) for approval of its proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable (TWC). Among other points, the commenters argue that certain third-party programmers “do not want any of the interested parties’ outside counsel or experts to view [their programming contracts],” the FCC noted. "We agree with these commenters that their current inability to review Highly Confidential Information that has been submitted in these dockets significantly hampers their ability to meaningfully comment and participate in these proceedings, in both Docket 14-57 and Docket 14-90. Accordingly, we are suspending the pleading cycles and stopping our 180-day informal time clock in both dockets," the FCC stated. Docket 14-90 refers to AT&T's (T) proposed purchase of DIRECTV (DTV).

13:09 EDTTEarnings Preview: AT&T to benefit from strong iPhone 6 demand, Wells Fargo says
AT&T (T) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, October 22, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. AT&T is a global telecommunications company offering wireless and long distance services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 64c on revenue of $33.24B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 59c-66c on revenue of $31.77B-$34.34B. LAST QUARTER: AT&T reported second quarter EPS of 62c against estimates for 63c on revenue of $32.6B against estimates for $33.22B. On its Q2 earnings report, the company forecast FY14 EPS growth at the low end of a mid-single digit range, compared to consensus of $2.62. It sees: FY14 consolidated revenue growth in the 5% range, versus consensus $133.93B; FY14 free cash flow in the $11B range; FY14 capital expenditures remaining in the $21B range. In Q2, AT&T reported the following: total branded smartphone net adds, both postpaid and prepaid, of 576,000; total branded tablet net adds of 250,000; 366,000 postpaid tablet net adds; postpaid churn of 0.86%. On September 25, DirecTV (DTV) stockholders voted overwhelmingly to approve DIRECTV’s proposed merger with AT&T. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been light in the weeks leading up to AT&T's Q3 earnings report. On September 15, Wells Fargo said AT&T should particularly benefit from strong Apple (AAPL) iPhone 6 demand. After Apple reported that over 4M iPhone 6 units were pre-ordered in the first 24 hours of eligibility, Wells Fargo said that it believed strong demand for the phones will be positive for all of the wireless carriers, but particularly for AT&T because of its strategic decision to focus on its early upgrade "Next!" program. The firm maintained its Outperform rating on AT&T. PRICE ACTION: AT&T’s shares have fallen approximately 4% since the company's Q2 report, but they did manage to make a 52-week high of $37.48 in late July. In afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow’s Q3 report, AT&T’s shares are up 0.5%.
