Stocks to Watch: Clearwire, P&G, OmniVision

NEW YORK -- Clearwire (CLWR) said it will delay a meeting scheduled for Friday to vote on Sprint's (S) buyout offer of $3.40 a share, following a counter bid from Dish Network (DISH) of $4.40 a share.

Clearwire said the meeting would reconvene on June 13. Meanwhile, the company said it would talk to Dish about its offer.

Dish's offer on Wednesday valued Clearwire, the wireless company, at $6.9 billion. Sprint's bid of $3.40 a share is for the half of Clearwire it doesn't already own.
