    Viacom, AT&T negotiations weigh on possible CBS tie-up: sources

    Although the boards of CBS and Viacom have not discussed or decided on pursuing a merger, these sources say they are studying AT&T's impact on Viacom and how it affects the company's motivation to pursue a CBS merger. Viacom needs to resolve the AT&T contract before considering any other strategic moves including mergers and acquisitions, sources said. Both companies are controlled by the Redstone family’s National Amusements Inc, which pushed for a merger last year but backed off as CBS explores other options before deciding on another run at Viacom.

    Viacom's stock falls as AT&T-DirecTV may drop its networks, but BTIG warns DirecTV may have more to lose

    Shares of Viacom Inc. dropped 4.2% in morning trade Wednesday, to pace decliners in the communications services sector, in the wake of the media company's warning of a disruption in service for those accessing its TV networks through AT&T Inc.'s DirecTV. Viacom's stock has now shed 5.8% this week. Meanwhile, AT&T's stock has lost just 0.6% this week. Viacom said Tuesday that despite "a series of offers" made to AT&T-DirecTV to reach a new carriage agreement, which expires March 22, AT&T's "unwillingness to engage in constructive conversations" could force a disruption of service. BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield said history suggests that DirecTV, not Viacom, has more to lose if DirecTV drops Viacom networks. The last time DirecTV dropped Viacom networks in 2012, it lost subscribers and market share to competitors. Viacom's stock has gained 2.4% year to date and AT&T shares have climbed 6.8%, while the SPDR Communications Services Select Sector ETF has rallied 13.3% and the S&P 500 has rallied 12.7%.

    This is one way in which AT&T’s takeover of Time Warner and the rising popularity of streaming apps have upended the media industry, leaving smaller companies like Viacom most vulnerable. The carriage agreement with Viacom expires on Friday, putting its already struggling networks such as MTV, Nickelodeon, BET, Comedy Central and VH1 at risk of being dropped from DirecTV’s satellite service, which still had about 19 million customers as of December, after suffering more than a million defections last year.

    3 Big Stock Charts for Wednesday: General Mills, Viacom and FleetCor Technologies

    The bulls tried, but before stocks could tiptoe too far into new-high territory, they balked. After reaching a new multimonth high, the S&P 500 peeled back to log its second loss in seven days. It's not yet a reason to panic.Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) and Monster Beverage (NASDAQ:MNST) were the proverbial problem children.Shares of the energy drink outfit fell nearly 5% after Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog penned some concerning words about its future. Disney, meanwhile, was down more than 2% on the first day the Fox assets it doesn't own were packaged up into their own entity, and their own stock. The cause-effect of that transaction, however, wasn't a particularly tight one on Tuesday.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThere were still some winners though. In fact, there was more "up" volume than "down" volume. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) was one of those winners, rallying nearly 12% following reports that Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) had chosen the chipmaker to power its new cloud-based video gaming platform.Moving into Wednesday's trading, it's the stock charts of Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB), General Mills (NYSE:GIS) and FleetCor Technologies (NYSE:FLT) that look poised for some significant movement. Here's a closer look. General Mills (GIS)Back in mid-September General Mills shares were rallying, but had yet to clear a big technical ceiling around $47.83. That never happened. Although it tried for a few more days, eventually the effort was up-ended. By December, GIS stock had reached a low near $36. * Top 7 Service Sector Stocks That Will Pay You to Own Them The stock rebounded, however, and was able to rally right back to -- you guessed it -- the $47.83 area without actually clearing it yet. It may well happen, and if it does, it could lead to an explosive move higher after a tough 2017 and 2018.That's a huge "if" though. Click to Enlarge • The technical ceiling is plotted with a yellow dashed line on both stock charts. If hurdled, the next-best ceiling is near $60. That's where a Fibonacci retracement line awaits, and it's near where the stock peaked in early 2018.• The shape of yesterday's daily bar says the bulls are not ready or willing to make the effort just yet. The open and close below Monday's low on a day the market was up is a red flag.• Still, moves above major technical ceilings are more of a process and less of an event. General Mills shares may need to pull back first and get a new running start. FleetCor Technologies (FLT)With nothing more than a quick glance at the chart, FleetCor Technologies looks like it's still going strong. The rebound that got rolling in late December technically lasted through the end of yesterday's trading.Take a closer look at the daily chart of FLT, however, and you'll start to see several red flags that suggest a pullback could be in the works … and soon. Though that outcome needs confirmation in the form of a lower close, the downside potential is too strong to ignore. Click to Enlarge • Chief among the red flags is the shape of Tuesday's bar. The open and close were right at the low for the day, and both in the shadow of an unusually high-low range. This suggests the bulls finally ran out of gas mid-day.• Another key concern is the lack of volume behind Monday's and Tuesday's gains. The buyers have already bowed out.• Fanning the bearish flames is the bullish gap that was left behind in early April. It now beckons FLT lower, to fill the gap in. Viacom (VIAB)Finally, last week Viacom was pinpointed as a potential downside mover. Major pressure was being put on a key technical support level, and one misstep could break that floor.That ended up happening the very next day, completing the sell signal. In the meantime, that bearish clue has been underscored by a couple more bearish hints. Click to Enlarge • The floor in question is $28.32, plotted in yellow on both stock charts. Viacom fell under that floor on Friday, and has since made two consecutive lower closes.• The first two of the past three bearish days haven't been low-volume days either. The sellers are coming out of the woodwork, save yesterday.• Zooming out to the weekly chart puts matters in perspective. It was ultimately resistance at the gray 100-day and white 200-day moving averages that pushed Viacom back into a full-blown downtrend.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
