U.S. investigating wireless collusion claim against AT&T, Verizon, NY Times says

The U.S. Department of Justice has opened an antitrust probe into potential coordination by AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), and GSMA, a mobile industry standards-setting group, to hinder consumers from easily switching carriers, the New York Times reports, citing six people with knowledge of the inquiry. In February, the DOJ sent demands to the three parties for information on potential collusion to thwart a technology known as eSIM, the report says. Such technology allows people to remotely switch wireless providers without putting in a new SIM card, the report notes. AT&T and Verizon face accusations that they colluded with GSMA to attempt to set standards that would give them the ability to lock a device to their network regardless of whether it had eSIM technology, the report says. Other publicly traded companies in the space include Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS). Reference Link

T-Mobile, Sprint deal has more hurdles than AT&T, Time Warner, says Jefferies
A horizontal merger between T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S) poses more significant regulatory hurdles than the contested AT&T (T), Time Warner (TWX) deal does, Jefferies analyst Scott Goldman tells investors in a research note after the Wall Street Journal reported the two companies are again in merger talks. The analyst believes potential regulatory remedies could include meaningful spectrum divestitures. With that said, he thinks the combined company would create "meaningful accretion," with free cash flow per share nearly 30% higher in year three. Using multiple analysis, Goldman thinks T-Mobile shares could be worth more than $88 in a deal scenario. The stock closed yesterday up 3.4% to $63.13. Further, the analyst recommends buying the tower stocks on yesterday's selloff given his view of significant regulatory hurdles for a Sprint, T-Mobile deal. He has Buy ratings on American Tower (AMT), Crown Castle (CCI) and SBA Communications (SBAC).

T-Mobile, Sprint merger logic, still difficult to consummate, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes that The Wall Street Journal reported on revived preliminary merger talks after T-Mobile (TMUS)/Sprint (S) ended previous M&A discussions five months ago. The analyst believes a merger offers long-term value for both companies through better scale and synergies, but friction will center on control, relative valuation and regulatory approval concessions, which need to be agreed upon up-front. Ultimately, Horan thinks the industry will consolidate to four large companies that will all offer a quad-play service, one possibility being T-Mobile/Sprint, AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ)/Dish (DISH) and a combination of the cable companies/wireless assets.

CommScope price target raised to $48 from $42 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Jeffrey Kvaal raised his price target for CommScope (COMM) to $48 saying "rapidly increasing" AT&T (T) FirstNet spending will lift the company's 2018 revenues "easily above consensus expectations." FirstNet represents a "rare inflection in a typically methodical story," Kvaal tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Buy rating on CommScope.

The stock's value is driven by current trading levels of AT&T (T) under a presumption that the sale of the company goes through, Wieser tells investors in a research note.

Canaccord positive on Moviefone acquisition by MoviePass
Canaccord analyst is Austin Moldow notes that Helios and Matheson (HMNY) has completed the acquisition of Moviefone assets from Oath, a subsidiary of Verizon (VZ). The analyst believes this deal gives MoviePass the opportunity to convert a large number of users into subscribers and provides a platform for enhanced studio marketing and user engagement. MoviePass will leverage the Moviefone brand and audience for subscriber conversion, he contends, adding that he estimates the overlap of Moviefone users and MoviePass subs is fairly minimal. Moldow reiterates a Buy rating and $15 price target on Helios and Matheson shares.

Shenandoah could benefit from Sprint, T-Mobile deal talk, says BWS Financial
BWS Financial analyst Hamed Khorsand noted that shares of Shenandoah (SHEN), a Sprint (S) affiliate for certain markets in the Mid-Atlantic region, began to price in the potential of being a winner the last time media reports indicated there were merger talks between Sprint and T-Mobile (TMUS). With the talks said to be rekindled, he would expect Shenandoah's stock to see some increase in value in the near-term and he also believes the terms of an agreement with Sprint could unlock value for Shenandoah. Khorsand maintains a Buy rating on the stock.

Morgan Stanley says watch Sprint capex as T-Mobile talks said to restart
After The Wall Street Journal reported that T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S) have resumed merger talks, Morgan Stanley analyst Simon Flannery noted that Sprint announced plans to accelerate network capex after the merger plans fell apart last time. If Sprint's capex comes in light this quarter and/or next quarter, it may be seen as potentially related to renewed conversations with T-Mobile as it could suggest Sprint has pushed off its investment plans, Flannery tells investors. Noting that Tower stocks sold off following the Journal's report, Flannery pointed out that the companies each disclosed direct overlaps in late 2016 of about 5% on average. Total consolidated combined T-Mobile/Sprint exposure for American Tower (AMT) was about 16%, was about 35% for Crown Castle (CCI) and was about 33% for SBA Communications (SBAC), all as of Q4 of 2017, the analyst stated.
