07:33 EDTWETFJefferies says investors should 'back up the truck' to buy WisdomTree
Jefferies analyst Surinder Thind attributes the sharp pullback in shares of WisdomTree to recent macro volatility, which he views as transitory, and recommends that long-term investors "back up the truck" to buy shares since it is the "same high growth potential company today that it was last week," but "much more attractively" priced. Thind, who said the outlook for a stronger U.S. dollar is still intact and that rising rates are still coming, added that he feels recent insider sales aren't a big deal, noting that there have been no recent sales by WisdomTree's CEO. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating and $31 price target on WisdomTree shares, which have declined nearly 25% over the last five trading sessions.

11:34 EDTSSprint rises on plans to abandon two-year contracts
Sprint shares are higher this morning after the company's chief executive officer said that the carrier plans to move away from two-year contracts. WHAT'S NEW: In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said that the company will stop offering two-year contracts by the end of 2015 in favor of a "smartphone lease" model. Sprint began offering a lease option last year, The Journal noted, and Claure said the carrier is planning to move entirely to that model by the end of the year. As part of its shift, Sprint yesterday unveiled iPhone Forever, a new leasing plan that starts at $22 per month for an iPhone. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a similar move earlier this month, Sprint rival Verizon (VZ) said it would drop phone subsidies and two-year contracts for new customers. T-Mobile (TMUS), another market rival, abandoned contracts over two years ago, leaving AT&T (T) as the only major U.S. carrier still offering to subsidize new smartphone purchases. Separately, Softbank (SFTBF), Sprint's primary stakeholder, disclosed last week that it increased its holdings in the company to approximately 80%, though the company said it does not plan for its stake in the carrier to exceed 85%. Meanwhile, a study released Tuesday by RootMetrics, an independent company that evaluates wireless networks, shows that Sprint is improving its network, having solidified third place nationally in overall performance, surpassing T-Mobile for the second consecutive six-month stretch. PRICE ACTION: Sprint is up 7c, or 1.52%, to $4.67 in morning trading.
