Analyst, Batya Levi, said, "Management increased 2012 outlook by 0.9% for revenues and 2.6% for EBITDA (excl. WCP/NextG) driven by strong activity from Verizon (NYSE: VZ), AT&T (NYSE: T), and Sprint (NYSE: S). CCI mentioned application activity was also strong, boding well for 2H. Separately, Clearwire (Nasdaq: CLWR) on its earnings call suggested that tower rentals will increase slightly in 2H12 and is on track to launch 5K LTE sites by mid-13."

UBS raises FY13 from $1.30 to $1.47, raising 2012 site rental revenue estimate to $2.06B (prior est. $1.96B).
