Motorola Solutions Inc Research Report

Motorola Solutions announced it will begin trading ex-dividend on  March 13,
2013  with a dividend payout of  26 cents  per share to be paid on  April 15 
this year, the same amount paid in the previous two quarters. Shareholders who
purchased the company's stock before the ex-dividend date will be eligible for
the payment. Meanwhile, Zacks reiterates its "neutral" rating on Motorola
Solutions' stock due to mixed Q4 results, where the bottom line met expectations
though the top line failed to do so. Zacks says the company's position as a
market leader in the U.S. Public Safety market and will be able to maintain its
current top-line growth in the future, though its Enterprise segment remains a
near-term concern due to macro-economic uncertainties in  Europe. The Full

Arris Group, Inc. Research Report

Arris Group's previously announced bid to acquire Motorola Home's cable set-top
box division from Google has been put to a hold by the Department of Justice,
after both parties received so-called "second requests" in relation to the
department's Hart-Scott-Rodino antitrust review of the deal. The decision will
extend the waiting period imposed by the aforementioned antitrust act until 30
days after each company has substantially complied with the Second Request,
unless that period is extended voluntarily by the companies or terminated sooner
by the DOJ. The  Suwanee, Georgia-based Arris agreed to buy Motorola Home for 
$2.35 billion  in cash and stock from Google's Motorola Mobility unit. Also part
of the deal is Comcast, who will buy an 8 percent stake in Arris for  $150
million. The Full Research Arris Group, Inc. - including full detailed
