Cablevision posts loss, stock falls

Cablevision Systems Corp. posted a quarterly loss for the first time in three-plus years ($3.8 million, or 1 cent per share) as programming expenses rose and it booked debt-refinancing charges. The company is struggling with Superstorm Sandy’s aftermath; more than 500,000 of its customers have no power. Last year, it booked a charge of $16 million for Hurricane Irene damage.
