As AT&T waits for the final verdict on the acquisition of Time Warner, the telecom giant is pushing back against a small cable channel that wants to participate in the case against the big tie-up.
T-Mobile (TMUS) continues to provoke the wireless telecom industry with innovative service plans and customer benefits every few months rather than just competing on price. The success of these service plan innovations has been evident, with major competitors Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), and Sprint (S) offering similar plan features or diversifying into other businesses.
A U.S. Senate committee plans to hold a hearing on June 27 on the proposed $26.5 billion (20 billion pound) merger of U.S. wireless carriers T-Mobile US (TMUS.O) and Sprint Corp (S.N). No witnesses have been announced for the hearing to be held by the Senate Judiciary Committee's subcommittee that oversees antitrust issues announced on Wednesday.
The fall in Comcast’s voice revenue is primarily the result of the distribution of voice revenue to customers with bundled services and a fall in the number of residential voice customers. In the quarter, the media and cable giant reported voice revenue of nearly $1.01 billion, a fall of 2.7% YoY (year-over-year) from $1.03 billion. AT&T posted a fall of 20.0% YoY in the legacy voice and data service revenues in its Business Solutions segment, while Charter’s voice revenue fell 19.8%.
Many hedge fund managers make money by identifying undervalued companies and investing in them before they grow more successful. If the price of the company goes down as expected the hedge fund then makes money off of the bet. Goldman Sachs has recently released a list of companies that hedge funds are short selling the most as part of its latest "Hedge Fund Trend Monitor," according to CNBC.
AT&T (T) plans to get its Mexico unit out of the red this year, but its priority is also closing its pending acquisition of Time Warner (TWX). The court’s decision on whether AT&T can close the acquisition is expected by June 12. The United States Department of Justice (or DOJ) filed a lawsuit to block AT&T from acquiring Time Warner, saying a merger of the two companies would hurt consumers through higher pay-TV prices or limited television choices.
Comcast’s (CMCSA) cable business generated revenue of $13.5 billion in the first quarter, a rise of 3.6% year-over-year. Comcast’s first-quarter revenue was mainly driven by strong growth in its business services units and growth in high-speed Internet and advertising revenues. The growing popularity of Xfinity Home and the rising revenue growth from X1 licensing agreements have also been benefiting its cable business.
AT&T (T) continues to gain ground in Mexico, with its Mexico wireless subsidiary adding 534,000 customers in the three months through March 31 to close the first quarter with 15.6 million subscribers. It gained more than 3 million subscribers over the past four quarters according to AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson in his presentation at a recent investor meeting hosted by JPMorgan Chase.
