Whirlpool's (WHR) fourth-quarter 2019 results are likely to reflect the impacts of softness in Latin America and EMEA. However, cost-containment efforts and margin expansion in North America bode well.
International private equity firm, Apollo Global Management, tonight blacked out DISH customers' access to local channels in 10 markets, across nine states. Earlier this week, an Illinois court issued a temporary restraining order against Apollo, blocking it from blacking out 14 stations it acquired from Cox Media Group less than a month ago.
Traditional multichannel video programming distributors, or MVPDs, the cable, satellite and telecoms companies that offer TV service, will lose about 5.1% of subscribers in 2020 to cord-cutting, S&P Global Ratings said Wednesday, up from an earlier forecast of 3.3%. "We believe there is greater downside risk than upside potential to our 2020 forecast," credit analyst Naveen Sarma said in a statement. The agency is expecting subscriber losses at the two satellite TV operators, Dish Network and AT&T's DirectTV , to moderate, but pay-TV cable subscriber losses are expected to climb to 3.1%. Rising prices for virtual pay-TV services will make them less attractive, while consumers are also facing a barrage of new streaming video on demand (SVOD) services by mid-2020. Pay-TV services are also vulnerable to an economic downturn, said Sarma. The ratings implications are mixed: cable companies can manage an increase in the pace of cord-cutting from a credit perspective, thanks to their broadband service. But media and entertainment companies will come under pressure if overall pay-TV subscriber losses accelerate. Netflix shares have fallen 3.8% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 26%.
A group of U.S. states suing to block T-Mobile US Inc from merging with Sprint Corp on Wednesday told a federal judge that the deal would raise prices for consumers, while the phone companies pushed back and emphasized they would compete aggressively to push prices down. T-Mobile and Sprint contend that the merger would enable the combined company to compete more effectively with dominant carriers Verizon Communications Inc and AT&T Inc. U.S. District Court Judge Victor Marrero, who will decide the fate of the merger, heard closing arguments in the case on Wednesday.
Verizon is doing away with long-term contracts on its Fios service. Here’s why that could actually help the company’s profit margins.
AT&T and the other carriers are here and there are a variety of 5G phones on the convention center floor. AT&T won’t be the only winner, of courser. China is arguably ahead of the U.S. in rolling out service and spurring consumer interest in buying 5G phones. But in the U.S. market, AT&T is better positioned than (VZ) (VZ), which is scrambling to find more spectrum.
Sprint's move to consolidate its prepaid brands comes at the tail end of an 18-month merger saga with T-Mobile.
The $26.5 billion acquisition of Sprint (NYSE: S) by T-Mobile finally got the OK from the U.S. Department of Justice once it became clear that Dish Network Corp. (Nasdaq: DISH) would receive divested assets from both companies in order to become a viable competitor in the wireless market. Although that deal was challenged in court by state attorneys general, Dish has pledged to open a 2,000-worker wireless headquarters to support its buildout of a 5G network. It’s no doubt that 2019 was a big year for Dish Network as it asserts its view that it can compete with the likes of T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon for wireless customers.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere testified this week that a merger with Sprint would give the new T-Mobile greater scale, network efficiencies, spectrum licenses, and other resources—meaning it would be able to innovate faster and lower prices.
The Justice Department approved the merger in July after the carriers agreed to sell some assets to satellite provider Dish. The merger, however, was still subject to approval by the FCC, which came in October. Ergen's testimony on Wednesday came during the trial of a lawsuit filed in June by a group of U.S. states seeking to block the Sprint and T-Mobile merger.
Dish Network stock climbed on Wednesday as CEO Charles Ergen testified in a federal antitrust trial that will determine whether the proposed wireless merger of T-Mobile US and Sprint goes through.

T-Mobile stock was trading at $75.63, up 0.2%, while the S&P 500was up 0.1%. T-Mobile stock has dropped 10%, and Sprint stock has shed 35% of its value, while the S&P 500 has climbed 6%.
