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."

Apple (AAPL) is pushing to begin production of its electric vehicle as soon as 2020, reports Bloomberg, citing people with knowledge of the matter. Bloomberg notes that the move could put Apple into direct competition with Tesla (TSLA) and General Motors (GM), both of which are targeting a 2017 release for next-generation electric vehicles. Apple may still cancel the project if it becomes unhappy with progress, the sources said, though its vehicle team is already 200-people strong. Reference Link

13:04 EDTSCTYDeutsche, Canaccord still upbeat on SolarCity despite Q1 guidance miss
The shares of SolarCity (SCTY) are falling after the company reported a higher than expected fourth quarter loss. However, Deutsche Bank and research firm Canaccord remained upbeat on the stock in notes to investors earlier today. Solarcity installs solar energy systems at residences and businesses. BACKGROUND: SolarCity reported a Q4 loss of ($1.33) per share, versus the consensus outlook for a ($1.27) per share loss. SolarCity's Q4 revenue, however, was roughly in-line with expectations and the company said that its backlog as of the beginning of 2015 was large enough to cover much of its expected installations for the first half of the year. Additionally, SolarCity reiterated its guidance for 920-1000MW of solar installations for 2015. SolarCity estimated, however, that its Q1 per share loss would come in at ($1.65)-($1.75), versus the consensus outlook for a ($1.25) per share loss. ANALYST REACTION: Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah wrote that SolarCity had executed well, while demand for its installations is strong. Moreover, the company's cost reduction plan looks to be running ahead of schedule, and its 2015 shipments look poised to come in ahead of its guidance, Shah believes. The analyst did, however, write that SolarCity's Q4 bookings were "somewhat" below his expectations and declined versus Q3. Nonetheless, the analyst continued to identify the stock as one of his top picks in the solar sector and kept a $90 price target and Buy rating on the name. Also upbeat on SolarCity was Canaccord analyst Jed Dorsheimer. He raised his price target on the shares to $67 from $64 following its results. SolarCity has had record bookings over the last 30 days and the company should come close to setting a bookings record in Q1, the analyst wrote, adding that its deployments should ramp in Q2 and Q3 as seasonal factors subside. Dorsheimer kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, SolarCity fell 6.3% to $53.48. Other names in the solar sector also declined, with SunPower (SPWR) falling 1.8%, JinkoSolar (JKS) dropping 1.5%, and Vivint Solar (VSLR) losing 2.3%.
