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%.
