Stocks to Watch: Sony, AT&T, Yahoo!

NEW YORK -- Sony (SNE - Get Report) is cutting 10,000 jobs, or roughly about 6% of its global work force, according to a report.

The layoffs will come by the end of 2012, Japanese newspaper Nikkei reported Monday.

Sony's new CEO Kazuo Hirai will hold a briefing on Thursday.

Sony has posted four straight years of losses, hurt by weakness at its LCD television unit.

Talks are continuing between AT&T (T - Get Report) and about 40,000 AT&T landline workers, the Communications Workers of America said Sunday.

The union contracts expired over the weekend. A strike was a possibility, but both sides said they would keep working on a new deal.

A CWA spokeswoman said the employees would report for work without a new contract, but still retain the option to call for a walkout.

At issue in the negotiations are job protection clauses and health care premiums and co-payments, according to The Associated Press.
