Level 3 Communications Buys Global Crossing

In the report, Deutsche Bank noted, We have 4 key areas of focus/expectations for 3Q earnings: (1) post paid net adds at TMUS, which could still beat despite recent upward revisions, (2) the degree of pressure on S’s post paid trends and its initial views on 14 network priorities, (3) 2014 guidance from CCI and SBAC, which should reflect strong trends in organic growth as carriers shift focus to cell splitting for LTE and (4) a pleasantly uneventful print from EQIX having reset guidance last quarter. Level 3 Communications closed on Friday at $25.05.

Centurylink Field might add a few thousand more seats in 2014

Large_sounderatheart

Those few-thousand seats would be a welcome addition for the men in Shale, as they certainly would be for the men in Wolf Grey (if they’d actually wear those sweet uniforms at home, that is). More significant, though, is the possibility that the new section could be sold as a block as a cheap season ticket area, similar to how the Hawks Nest was recently opened for Sounders games.
