    As the ongoing hunt for yield keeps looking in all directions, and investors hope to get paid to wait, you may as well look to stocks, Dave Kansas says. It's not hard to find equities out-yielding 10-year Treasurys, and it's not just utilities that are paying big dividends: Intel (INTC), AT&T (T), Merck (MRK) and Pfizer (PFE) are among healthy firms with healthy payouts.

    Goldman Sachs adds Comcast (CMCSA -0.6%) to its Conviction Buy List, eyeing higher shareholder returns from dramatically rising dividend payouts and share buybacks by 2012. Comcast likely will be the only broadband vendor, including AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ), to increase the number of broadband subscribers, Goldman predicts.

    DISH and Echostar (SATS) have been on a buying spree this year without divulging much detail about their plans. Dish CEO Joseph Clayton obtusely says the firm's focusing on a broad industry that includes video, data, broadband, Internet and voice telephony - which sounds a lot like Comcast's Xfinity and ATT's U-verse plaforms.

    Some T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK) dealers are selling out or cutting back expansion plans, creating new challenges as T-Mobile tries to hang on to subscribers in preparation for its acquisition by AT&T (T). More than 40% of AT&T's stores have at least one T-Mobile store within a mile, and AT&T has said that cost savings in its retail chains is a big part of the deal's rationale.

    Wireless spectrum in the U.S. is so limited - and Americans' appetite for bulky media like video so voracious - that wireless broadband won't be truly able to handle it "for a long time to come," says Motorola Mobility's (MMI +2.3%) Sanjay Jha. Peak speeds of 4G networks rival wireline, but the standard broadband provided to homes by cable companies should continue to dominate.

    Strange bedfellows: The NAACP, Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, and National Education Association issue statements in support of AT&T’s (T) proposed $39B acquisition of T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK). All received money from AT&T but say the contributions had nothing to do with their position.

    AT&T (T) gets a little help from its friends in its quest to win approval of a T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK) takeover. Eight tech giants - Facebook, MSFT, YHOO, ORCL, RIMM, QCOM, BRCD and Avaya - and 10 venture capital firms file letters with the FCC supporting AT&T’s argument that the deal will help meet the growing need for wireless broadband services.

    As critics line up against the proposed $39B mega-merger between AT&T (T) and T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK), Sprint (S) ratchets up the pressure, formally asking the FCC to block the takeover while urging consumers to send Twitter messages. Sprint shares have jumped 13% in the past two weeks, and some see the rise as an "interesting tea leaf" forecasting the deal's fate.

    Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle expressed skepticism yesterday that AT&T's (T) planned purchase of T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK) would bring consumers the benefits the two companies claim, and worried about the impact on innovation and competition. State regulators are equally concerned.

    Sprint (S +1%) has "a better product, a better network, better customer service" than before, resulting in lower churn and higher customer satisfaction, and the stock's low valuation makes it a good time to step in and buy, TPG-Axon's Dinakher Singh says. AT&T's (T) deal with T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK) is a "huge win" because it took out the company’s "worst competitor."

    Grumbles are growing over AT&T’s (T) planned $39B takeover of T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK), as Leap Wireless (LEAP) is the latest to come out against a deal. The acquisition "would reduce competition and decrease innovation and investment in the wireless industry," it says. Sprint (S) and MetroPCS (PCS) already have been vocal in their disapproval.
