    Dish Network Corp. (NASDAQ: DISH) is commonly known as the second fiddle to AT&T (NYSE: T) satellite service DirecTV, with around 11 million subscribers to DirecTV’s 25.36 million. With the growth of streaming, it’s no surprise that satellite television is a maturing business. Naturally, both companies have joined the streaming brawl. Dish with Sling and AT&T with its DirectNow service.

    T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) and Sprint (NYSE:S) recently submitted their public interest statement to the FCC about their proposed merger. In the document, the two companies present how their merger will benefit consumers. But further down, about 100 pages in, they explain that neither company can continue down the path they’ve been on, aggressively pursuing market share from AT&T (NYSE:T) and Verizon (NYSE:VZ).

  • [By Adam Levy]

    AT&T (NYSE:T) has nearly 1.5 million DIRECTV Now subscribers as of the end of the first quarter. The company’s over-the-top linear TV streaming service has grown faster than competitors like DISH Network’s (NASDAQ:DISH) Sling TV, Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) PlayStation Vue, or Hulu Live. It seems like only a matter of time before DIRECTV Now’s subscriber base surpasses Sling TV’s 2.3 million subscribers to become the most popular streaming TV service.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

This is the kind of stuff that keeps OPEC up at night.

The oil cartel and key ally Russia have spent more than a year trying to drain the world of excess supply. But the International Energy Agency warned Tuesday that a “colossal” oil boom in the United States could ruin their efforts.

The Paris-based agency said that a massive increase in output means the U.S. will soon be producing more oil than Saudi Arabia. It could soon challenge Russia for the global crown.

The manic American pumping, which the IEA estimates will average 10.4 million barrels a day this year, could cause a glut to return to global markets.

“U.S. producers are enjoying a second wave of growth so extraordinary that in 2018 their increase in liquids production could equal global demand growth,” the IEA said in its latest monthly report. “This is a sobering thought for other producers.”

The IEA said the surge, which is powered by shale, is “reminiscent” of 2014, when booming production in the U.S. prompted OPEC to flood the global market with oil in an attempt to protect its market share.

    The near-zero natural gas engines were created by a joint venture between Cummins(NYSE:CMI) and Westport Fuel Systems (NASDAQ:WPRT), called Cummins Westport. Unveiled on May 1, the engine lineup can be used in medium- and heavy-duty trucks, including buses, refuse vehicles, and long-haul trucks. In fact, the ISX 12N engine, as it is called, is the world’s first Class 8on-highway truck engine to be certified near-zero by the California Air Resources Board, which sets emission standards that are followed by 16 other states. The Tesla Semi and Nikola One are both Class 8 vehicles, or what most people refer to as semis.

    Furthermore, having a strong financial partner in Total to help it drive adoption of heavy-duty natural gas vehicles at this time could be a huge win.

    Friday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, with a split among the most widely followed market benchmarks that sent some up and others down. Slight downticks in oil prices and bond yields marked minor reversals from upward trends earlier in the week, but investors are still watching both energy and bonds closely to see what long-term impact they might have on the stock market. Most attention centered on individual companies, some of which reported good news that sent their shares higher.

    Oil prices have continued rebounding this year, with the U.S. benchmark price WTI up another 7% to around $65 per barrel. That improving oil price has helped drive up most oil stocks.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Invest In 2018

This week saw four companies file for IPOs including family-owned trucker Schneider National (SNDR), packaging film manufacturer Kl枚ckner Pentaplast (KP), E&P Jagged Peak Energy (JAG), and SPAC FinTech Acquisition II (FNTEU). There were no pricings this week and there is nothing on the calendar for the remainder of the year.

Schneider National (SNDR), a leading US trucking company, filed for an IPO this week. Though it filed with a $100 deal size, we estimate the deal could raise as much as $1 billion. The Schneider family has owned the company since it was founded in 1935. In the nine months ended September 30, 2016, Schneider had $3.0 billion in sales (+1% YOY) and saw operating income increase 16% to $202 million (7% margin).

Kl枚ckner Pentaplast (KP), a global manufacturer of plastic films, filed for an estimated $300 million IPO on Thursday. The company has changed hands several times in the past, most recently when Strategic Value Partners took control from Blackstone in a 2012 restructuring that wiped out Blackstone’s $127 million in equity. Kl枚ckner has seen revenue decline to $1.4 billion (-5% YOY) and has a large debt burden of $1.2 billion (4.8x LTM adjusted EBITDA), but hopes its leading position in stable growing markets will tempt investors. The company filed under the name Kleopatra Holdings 2.
