07:26 EDTTWC, DTV, DISH, VZ, TTime Warner struggling to force Dodgers network on pay-TV players, LAT say
Time Warner Cable (TWC) is facing strong resistance from the pay-TV industry, led by DirecTV (DTV), as it tries to force its Dodgers channel on all subscribers of their television services, reported The Los Angeles Times. DirecTV, which has about a 30% share of the local pay-TV market in L.A., says it would gladly provide the channel to anyone who wants it, but so far has rejected the insistence that all customers take it, with Dish Network (DISH), Verizon's (VZ) FiOS and AT&T's (T) U-verse standing pat to see how DirecTV proceeds in the end.

Wells Fargo believes that Ciena (CIEN) reported solid Q3 results, and the firm was encouraged by the news that the company was named as an AT&T (T) domain 2.0 supplier. However, the firm notes that Ciena's Q4 revenue guidance was lower than expected, partly due to the deal. Nonetheless the firm expects the factors that caused the guidance miss to be transitory, and it is upbeat about the company's outlook for FY15. Wells keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Oppenheimer earlier today said it sees DISH (DISH) trying to acquire T-Mobile (TMUS) for $40 per share, and that there is a 20% chance a deal could be announced ahead of the September 10 FCC-mandated quiet period. Opco does not believe DISH can successfully partner with Sprint (S) or T-Moblile (TMUS), leaving buying T-Mobile or selling spectrum as its primary options. The firm expects additional wireless consolidation within the next year, and lists the most likely outcomes as a T-Mobile/DISH merger or T-Mobile/Comcast (CMCSA) merger.

13:04 EDTTFinisar retreats after analyst cuts on pricing, demand worries
Shares of optical components maker Finisar (FNSR) are falling after research firm Jefferies downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy in a note to investors today, citing pricing and demand concerns. WHAT'S NEW: After conducting checks, Jefferies analyst James Kisner wrote that Finisar is facing "brutal" prices for datacom optics, particularly in China. Prices for telecom components in North America are also challenging for Finisar, he reported. Various low-cost competitors are driving down prices for datacom optics, while AT&T (T) is trying to force optical systems vendors to cut the prices of their components by 40%, Kisner stated. Meanwhile, demand for mobile backhaul optics slowed significantly in China over the last month, and two of Finisar's customers - Cisco (CSCO) and Huawei - are exploring alternatives to Finisar's products, Kisner indicated. Additionally, Intel (INTC) and numerous start-ups may launch products that will compete with those of Finisar, potentially cutting into its market share beginning in the second half of 2015, the analyst warned. He cut his price target on the shares to $19 from $25. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Finisar slumped 5.5% to $19. Other optical components makers also dropped, with Oclaro (OCLR) falling 1% to $1.75 and JDS Uniphase (JDSU) losing 2% to $11.30.
