    Ericsson, Nokia: Little To Like In Verizon's Outlook, Says Raymond James

    Earnings this morning from Verizon Communications (VZ) showed some improving trends for the carrier, but they offer little to like for Ericsson (ERIC), Nokia (NOK), and CommScope (COMM) according to a report this evening from Raymond James analyst Simon Leopold. Leopold notes Verizon’s forecast for its capital spending this year, which is for $17 billion to $17.8 billion, reflects the company’s intention to "continue to exercise the same discipline in its approach to planning that it has historically,” so that there’s no immediate boost this year from U.S. tax reform, even though the new rules provide for accelerated depreciation of investment in equipment. A lot of the investment is tiled toward fixed broadband, he notes, which doesn’t help the wireless portfolios of Ericsson and Nokia.

    Verizon Rises on Q4 Beat, Higher Year Outlook

    Shares of Verizon Communications (VZ) are up 80 cents, or 1.5%, at 54.26, after the company this morning beat Q4 revenue expectations by a comfortable margin, missed on the bottom line, and forecast revenue growth this year better than the Street was expecting. The company said the recently passed U.S. tax reforms will boost Verizon's cash from operations this year by $3 billion to $4 billion. Jennifer Fritzsche of Wells Fargo, who has an Outperform rating on the shares, writes in her first pass at the results that "good well outweighs the bad here," pointing to not just the revenue number but also the addition of 431,000 phone connections, within overall retail "net additions" of 1.2 million.
