    Telecom Giants Verizon And AT&T Report Earnings This Week

    The telecom sector had a challenging 2017 and ended up being the worst performer for the year out of the S&P 500 sectors. In recent news, several media outlets have reported that the U.S. Department of Justice is investigating Verizon, AT&T, as well as other major wireless carriers in the U.S. and mobile industry group GSM Association regarding the development of mobile standards over e-SIM, which allows customers to switch carriers without requiring physical SIM cards.

    Wireless earnings: Numbers may take a back seat to collusion probe and M&A

    Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) kicks off reporting season for the sector with its Tuesday morning release, but investors may be more preoccupied with events that won’t show up in the company’s results. Verizon and AT&T Inc. (XNYS:T) are reportedly the subject of a Justice Department inquiry that’s examining whether the two companies colluded with a wireless-standards organization to make it harder for people to switch to new phone carriers, according to Friday news reports. The New York Times report, which cites multiple people familiar with the inquiry, said that Verizon and AT&T wanted to be able to lock phones even if they contained an eSIM card.

    Tech Today: An eSim Conspiracy? Defending Verizon, Cheering Okta

    Here are some things going on today in the world of tech: Google Q1 Cometh On tap for earnings this evening, Alphabet (GOOGL) and specialty chip designer Rambus (RMBS) and contract-electronics manufacturer Sanmina (SANM). Verizon Services Can Grow Again Shares of Verizon Communications (VZ) are up 13 cents at $48.03, after Barclays’s Amir Rozwadowski this morning raised his rating on the shares to Overweight from Equal Weight, while keeping his price target of $56, writing that the current price “overly discounts any number of factors that could improve its earnings trajectory,” such as the prospect that its service revenue will be “reignited” by as soon as the middle of the year. While the company’s Q1 probably had "lower volumes” of subscribers — he thinks they were worse than consensus, losing perhaps 50,000 phone customers in the quarter — nevertheless, Rozwadowski takes heart in his belief the soggy quarter “won’t affect the carrier’s ability to deliver an improved year over year service revenue trajectory in the latter half of the year." The upgrade comes ahead of Verizon’s Q1 report tomorrow morning, before the opening bell.

    The Total Witch Hunt Around AT&T’s Power Grab

    AT&T, the No. 2 wireless carrier in the U.S., and its larger rival Verizon Communications Inc. are reportedly under investigation by U.S. antitrust officials over whether the companies colluded to make it harder for customers to switch carriers. The Justice Department is looking into whether there’s been coordination by the two companies and GSMA, an industry standards-setting group, to thwart this technology. The investigation comes as the Justice Department’s antitrust division also attempts to block AT&T’s $109 billion takeover of Time Warner on the grounds that AT&T could then collude with Comcast Corp., the cable giant that owns NBCUniversal, to control the pay-TV market, thus hurting competition and resulting in higher prices for consumers.
