11:14 EDTVZEarnings Preview: Verizon shares flat ahead of Q1 report
Verizon Communications (VZ) is expected to report Q1 earnings before the market open on Thursday, April 19, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Analysts are looking for EPS of 58c on revenue of $28.17B. The consensus range is 56c-60c for EPS, and revenue of $27.87B-$28.55B, according to First Call. Verizon reported mixed Q4 results, narrowly missing adjusted EPS, but beating revenue estimates. On its Q4 conference call, the company’s CFO, Francis Shammo, said there was "tremendous confidence" in long term growth prospects and wireline margin expansion in 2012. He added that for FY12, $2.20 was a "logical starting point" for EPS estimates. Current consensus is $2.47. The shares have traded in a narrow range since Q4 results were released in late January. They briefly approached their 52-week high of $40.48 in late March, but have fallen approximately 7% since then. Since hitting a 52-week low of $32.28 in August of last year, the shares are up approximately 17%, and currently sit near two-year highs. With so much good news discounted in the shares, investors will need exceptional results to justify further commitments.

11:33 EDTVZSprint announces launch of LTE Plus network
In celebration of the launch of its new LTE Plus network, Sprint (S) is introducing the biggest wireless offer in U.S. history - 50% off the price of most Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T) and T-Mobile (TMUS) rate plans, the company says. New customers can sign up for this offer nationwide Nov. 20 through Jan. 7, 2016. LTE Plus, available today in 77 major markets, takes advantage of Sprint's rich triband spectrum portfolio, and it uses some of the world's most advanced technologies in wireless, such as carrier aggregation and antenna beamforming. Customers who switch get 50 percent off most current rate plan prices from their current carrier. AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon customers switching to Sprint also can take advantage of iPhone Forever, where they are eligible to upgrade every time a new iPhone launches. Customers must port one line, and can add up to 9 additional lines on the account. Customers must choose from the 50 percent off rate plans available from their current carrier. Cricket and MetroPCS customers also can switch and save 50 percent off their parent company's postpaid rates. 50 percent off pricing remains valid until Jan. 8, 2018, for activations between Nov. 20, 2015, and Jan. 7, 2016.
