Time Warner Cable stock hit $135.31, with the deal seeing TWC holders earning a nice 18% premium. Comcast will reportedly divest three million subscribers in order to fan down regulatory worries. CNBC's David Faber, the man behind the report, says: "Comcast deal for $TWC does not face ownership cap restrictions, but sure to get tough review from FCC. $CMCSA wants to avoid consent decree".
