Viacom Inc. and AT&T Inc. have reached a deal that will keep Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon and other channels on AT&T's DirectTv service, the LA Times and other media reported Monday.

As the nation's biggest pay-TV distributor, AT&T was demanding a cut in the carriage fees charged by Viacom. AT&T provides TV service to 24.5 million homes in the U.S. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed. Viacom shares rose 5% in premarket trade, while AT&T shares were up 0.3%.

Apple streaming event 'could trigger a sell-off,' says BTIG
BTIG analyst Walt Piecyk wrote Monday that Apple Inc.'s upcoming launch of its streaming-media service "could trigger a sell-off in the stock." The company is scheduled to make an announcement on Monday at 1 p.m. ET, which is widely expected to concern the company's efforts in streaming video. "We believe there is little that Apple can say at its event today that will satisfy media skeptics," Piecyk wrote. He said that sell-offs have become typical following Apple events. "Most of today's criticism will probably be accurate but viewed through a short term lens," Piecyk wrote, including that it's difficult and expensive to become a formidable media player. He argued that the company shouldn't look toward a big acquisition as a way to bolster its content ambitions. Nonetheless, he boosted his price target to $220 from $189 in his Monday note, writing that the outlook for Apple's 2020 earnings looks favorable relative to the S&P 500 . Apple shares have jumped 30% in the past three months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has risen 17%.

Millions of Facebook, Instagram passwords exposed internally, company says
Facebook Inc. said in a blog post Thursday that millions of users' passwords were stored in a readable format in its internal data storage systems. The company's login systems "are designed to mask passwords using techniques that make them unreadable," and Facebook has fixed the problem, it said. As a precaution, it will notify the users who had passwords stored that way. The passwords were never visible to anyone outside the company and there's no evidence so far that "anyone internally abused or improperly accessed them," Facebook said. It estimated it will notify hundreds of millions of Facebook Lite users, tens of millions of other Facebook users, and tens of thousands of Instagram users, it said. Shares of Facebook rose 0.5% in late trading Thursday, and have lost about 2% in the past 12 months, which contrasts with gains around 5% for the S&P 500 index.
