07:43 EDTTWX, FOXA, VZ, CBSTime Warner still in play after rejecting 21st Century Fox, Bloomberg says
Even if Time Warner (TWX) successfully fends off 21st Century Fox (FOXA), analysts from Needham, RBC and others say the company is now a target and CEO Jeff Bewkes’s plan to keep the company independent will probably only last so long, according to Bloomberg's "Real M&A" column. Needham says it is possible that Verizon (VZ) or an Internet company could step in with offers, while Wedbush analysts contended that pursuing a merger with CBS (CBS) could serve as another way to defend itself from Fox, the report noted.

08:13 EDTVZCorvex says Crown Castle, Verizon deal would 'diversify' revenues
Corvex said, "A Verizon (VZ) tower deal would diversify Crown Castle's (CCI) revenues and deepen the company's relationship with arguably the U.S.'s strongest wireless company and operator of the country's most robust network. As the largest and most-focused U.S. tower operator and the largest operator of legacy carrier portfolios, Crown Castle could be the best strategic acquirer of Verizon's tower assets. That does not mean the company will be best positioned financially to provide the highest and best bid though. Based on recent press articles, the potential sale price for the Verizon towers could be approximately $6B. However, we strongly believe that the company should not issue any equity at recent prices, and certainly not to acquire more tower assets at premium prices when Crown Castle continues to trade at a material discount to both transaction multiples and publicly traded peers."

13:17 EDTFOXA, CBSNielsen to restate some TV rating due to software glitch, Variety reports
Nielsen (NLSN) acknowledged it uncovered a software error on October 6 that had resulted in TV ratings being allocated incorrectly among broadcast and syndication programming since March 2 and that it would restate the ratings accordingly to fix the errors, reported Variety. The company said 98% to 99% of ratings would not be affected by more than .05 of a ratings point and a person familiar with the situation said some TV networks have an expectation that some of their new fall programming will see a very slight uplift due to the restatement, the report noted. The big four broadcast networks are operated by CBS (CBS), Comcast (CMCSA), Disney (DIS) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA). Reference Link
