11:37 EDTCMCSA, NFLX, T, VZ, TWC, GOOGFCC Chairman to propose new 'Net Neutrality' rules
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced he intends to ask his fellow commissioners to enact new open Internet rules that enforce and enhance the transparency rule, fulfill the “no blocking” goal and fulfill the goals of the non-discrimination rule. Wheeler also said the Commission will not initiate any further judicial action in connection with the Verizon (VZ) decision. Wheeler stated: "In its Verizon v. FCC decision, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit invited the Commission to act to preserve a free and open Internet. I intend to accept that invitation by proposing rules that will meet the court’s test for preventing improper blocking of and discrimination among Internet traffic, ensuring genuine transparency in how Internet Service Providers manage traffic, and enhancing competition. Preserving the Internet as an open platform for innovation and expression while providing certainty and predictability in the marketplace is an important responsibility of this agency." Supporters of the "net neutrality" rules, as they have been called, include Google (GOOG) and Netflix (NFLX). In addition to Verizon, other broadband operators include AT&T (T), Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC). Reference Link

14:40 EDTTAT&T volatility elevated into Q4 and outlook

14:19 EDTTAT&T technical notes before earnings
The key support level for the shares is at $32.50, the bottom of its trading range for the most part since February 2014. If the news is negative, the $32.50 area could be tested. A breakdown below that level would be a technical negative, voiding years of support. Next downside objectives would then be at $31.52 and $30.54. If the news is a positive surprise, there is long-run level of resistance at $37 that would be the first big upside test. A move above $37 would resolve a nearly 2-year long trading range bullishly. Next resistance would be at $37.86.

17:55 EDTCMCSA'The Revenant' tops box office as 'Ride Along 2' sags
"The Revenant" clawed past "Ride Along 2" as this weekend's snow storm left several box office newcomers grasping for ticket sales. WEEKEND LEADER: Fox's (FOX, FOXA) "The Revenant" grossed $16M domestically for the weekend of January 24. The Leonardo DiCaprio-led survival Western was expected to take $19M-$21.6M, though results may have been dampened by the East Coast winter storm. BOX OFFICE RUNNERS-UP: Disney's (DIS) "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" earned $14.3M and now stands at $1.94B globally. Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) subsidiary Universal's "Ride Along 2" dipped to $13M against expectations for $18M-$18.7M, with critics and audiences generally lukewarm on the film despite its $34M open last weekend. Rounding out the weekend's top five were Lionsgate's (LGF) "Dirty Grandpa" and STX Entertainment's "The Boy," with the two newcomers debuting at a respective $11.5M and $11.3M.

11:02 EDTVZ, NFLXStocks post weekly gain after oil rebounds
Stocks recovered late in the week to post their first weekly gain of the new year as equities continue to be correlated closely with the oil market. A plunge in oil led equities lower early in the holiday shortened week, but as oil prices rebounded to close the week out, the major averages followed suit. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., the consumer price index fell 0.1% during December, versus expectations for a flat reading. The core reading, which excludes food and energy, showed prices rose 0.1% from the prior month, versus expectations for an increase of 0.2%. Initial jobless claims rose to 293,000 last week, topping the expectation for 278,000 first-time claims. Markit's flash manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for January rose 1.5 points to 52.7, better than the 51.0 reading that was expected. Existing home sales climbed 14.7% to a 5.46M rate in December, topping the 5.2M rate that was forecast... In Asia, China's national bureau of statistics estimated that GDP growth slowed to 6.8% in the last quarter of the year, dipping from 6.9% growth in the previous quarter. China's industrial output rose 5.9% from a year earlier in December, compared with the consensus forecast for a 6% increase. Japan's Nikkei average was down early in the week, even falling into bear market territory, but rallied nearly 6% on Friday after the Nikkei Asian Review said that the Bank of Japan is taking a "serious look" at additional easing... In Europe, the European Central Bank left its key interest rates unchanged. However, at an associated press conference, ECB President Mario Draghi acknowledged downside risks were increasing again, meaning the bank may need to "review and possibly reconsider" its monetary policy stance at its next meeting in March. Markit's flash PMI for the euro zone slid to an 11-month low of 53.5, missing expectations for a more modest dip to a 54.2 reading. The International Monetary Fund cut its global growth forecasts for the third time in less than a year. The IMF now estimates that the world economy will grow 3.4% this year and 3.6% next year, down from its prior forecasts of 3.6% and 3.8% growth, respectively. COMPANY NEWS: On Tuesday, Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced 1% after its earnings and revenue topped analysts' consensus forecast. Big bank peer Bank of America (BAC) slid 1% after its earnings also beat expectations but its revenue narrowly missed the consensus estimate... On Wednesday, IBM (IBM) slid nearly 5% after reporting better than expected earnings and revenue for the fourth quarter, but forecasting below-consensus profits for the new year... On Thursday, Verizon (VZ) was among the best performers on the Dow, advancing over 3% after its earnings, revenue and wireless subscriber additions all topped expectations. Conversely, fellow Dow member Travelers (TRV) slid almost 1% after releasing its own quarterly results... On Friday, American Express (AXP) sunk more than 12% after the card issuer reported stronger than expected quarterly results but its 2017 profit guidance came in below the consensus outlook. The company's pledge to take out $1B in costs by the end of 2017 did little to change the mood of analysts or investors. Fellow Dow member GE (GE) slid a bit more than 1% after reporting better than expected earnings but lower than expected quarterly revenue... Schlumberger (SLB) shares gained 6% after the oil services giant reported earnings that topped expectations, approved a quarterly dividend of 50c per share and a new share repurchase program of $10B and said it plans to cut 10,000 more jobs... Netflix (NFLX) reported fourth quarter earnings that beat analyst estimates, powered by better than expected international subscriber growth. The numbers were met with positive commentary by several research firms, though decelerating U.S. subscriber growth was highlighted by bears as a warning sign for the company... Deutsche Bank (DB) disclosed that it expects a EUR2.1B net loss for the quarter due to a number of charges, including expected litigation costs of EUR1.2B... Xilinx (XLNX) advanced after reporting its third quarter numbers. The news may have been overshadowed, however, by a regulatory filing showing new agreements with its top executives, with several analysts highlighting that the change could signal a takeover is in the cards in the future... Alkermes (ALKS) plunged more than 44% after disclosing that two of three Phase 3 studies of its experimental depression disorder treatment did not meet their primary efficacy endpoints. INDEXES: For the four-day week, the Dow gained about 0.67% to close at 16,093.51, the S&P 500 rose about 1.4% to close at 1,906.90, and the Nasdaq increased about 2.3% to close at 4,591.18.
