The 10-Point: My Guide to the Day's Top News

The Wall Street Journal
Good morning from Laguna Beach, Calif., where the annual WSJDLive conference is under way. Yesterday evening I spoke with CEO Satya Nadella about what’s next for Microsoft. Today’s lineup features conversations with Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and more, in addition to Activate founder and CEO Michael J. Wolf’s closely watched tech surprises and outlook presentation. Follow our live coverage here.
Tough Deal
That $85.4 billion AT&T deal to buy Time Warner sails toward two cresting waves of opposition: resurgent antitrust enforcement in Washington and politicians fired by a new bipartisan populist rage. It is too early to know how regulators will treat the AT&T-Time Warner deal. But after several quiet years, President Barack Obama’s antitrust team has switched into high gear in response to a recent spurt of deal-making. This trend is likely to continue in the next administration, as both presidential campaigns have signaled unease with the AT&T deal. Shares of both companies dropped Monday amid Wall Street skepticism. At WSJDLive, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings offered qualified support for the deal—as long as it doesn’t give an “unfair advantage” to Time Warner’s networks.

Discount Buyer
One of the nation’s biggest discount brokerages is buying a smaller rival as a decline in stock trading and a relentless price war in commissions push stock sellers to seek new ways to make money. The $4 billion acquisition of Scottrade by TD Ameritrade joins two of the biggest names in online brokerage, a business that boomed in the late 1990s as individuals flocked online to buy stocks on their own for a fraction of what traditional brokers had charged them. TD Ameritrade is buying privately held Scottrade for its larger brick-and-mortar brokerage and bank network. The combined company would have more than 10 million client accounts and nearly $1 trillion in assets. The acquisition makes sense as a bet on higher interest rates. But as a response to other forces buffeting the industry, it falls short.
The Active Passive
Index funds are increasingly the default investing option for individuals and big pension funds alike. As a result, the power brokers with leverage over America’s corporate boards are changing. Passive-fund managers used to be unequipped and unwilling to weigh in on most corporate events. With their new power, they are waking up to how much they can sway takeovers, the fates of chief executives and other crucial decisions. Index-fund executives have added employees to deal with shareholder votes but say they don’t use their new power like activist investors. The change is shifting the clout in boardrooms toward investors known for being deferential to management, a stance troubling to stock pickers who believe shareholders should assert themselves. Take a look at how WSJ readers responded to our survey about active versus passive investing.
Raise Your Voice
Just like every other part of the body, the voice ages. It can become softer and scratchier. It can waver and simply give up after a few hours of speaking. Men’s pitch tends to rise, while women’s tends to get lower. Age-related voice problems can begin as early as age 50 as people lose muscle mass in the voice box. But we report that there are treatments that can improve the function of the voice and restore a younger sound, from voice therapy to fillers and fat injections. And in other health news, companies are offering mail-order testing to measure the length of one’s telomeres, which can signal disease risk. We also tell the story of a woman training for her first marathon, with her father’s running journal from the 1970s as a guide.

READER RESPONSE
Responding to yesterday’s question on the AT&T-Time Warner deal, Nick Pernisco of Washington said: “This merger is bad for consumers. I’ve already experienced how AT&T benefits from its mergers: a higher DirecTV bill unless I bundle with other services. The deal will still go through because the government cares more about big business than the little guy.” Augusta Era Golian of Texas wrote: “I am against it on general principles in regard to company size. Our mutant capitalism culture is producing too many pseudo monopolies that will eventually become ‘too big too fail aside from immediately constricting consumer choice.” And Charlie Van Pelt of Florida commented: “All-access portable device media is the next ‘big thing,’ but hopefully current U.S. regulators will not forget the lessons of anti-competitive telecommunications business concentration learned in 1983 when the courts broke up Ma Bell. AT&T has been permitted to simply put itself back together over the subsequent 30 years. That reconstituted entity now wants to give itself commanding vertical control of media in the U.S. with the acquisition of Time Warner. Current customers of AT&T are very familiar with its arrogant and incompetent customer service. An approved merger will continue that bleak tradition, just more of it with less competition and higher prices. Bad idea.”
This daily briefing is named "The 10-Point" after the nickname conferred by the editors of The Wall Street Journal on the lead column of the legendary "What's News" digest of top stories. Technically, "10-point" referred to the size of the typeface. The type is smaller now but the name lives on.
