14:31 EDTCHL, NOK, AAPLApple sell-off attributed to numerous factors by analyst
Shares of Apple (AAPL) are sinking today primarily because of a "misinterpreted" news report and a "technical breakdown" in the stock, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster wrote in a note to investors this afternoon. Munster doesn't believe the reasons behind the decline hold much water and he recommends buying the stock amid the pull back. One of the primary factors behind the stock's decline is a report by Taiwanese website DigiTimes that Apple's demands for iPhone 5 parts and components may drop 20% in the first quarter of 2013, the analyst wrote. Such a decline, however, is to be expected, since the device was just launched during the current quarter, according to Munster. Also a major contributor to the stock's decline is the fact that the shares' 50 day moving average is nearing its 200 day moving average. At worst, this bearish technical development could cause the stock to decline another 10% from current levels, Munster believes. A third, less important factor behind the stock's sell-off is a decision by COR Clearing to increase its margin requirement on purchases of Apple's stock to 60% from 30%. This decision doesn't affect Apple's fundamentals as a company, the analyst believes. Finally, the announcement by Nokia (NOK) that its Lumia phones will be offered by China Mobile (CHL) by the end of the year could also be hurting Apple's stock, as some investors have speculated that China Mobile will offer the Lumia instead of the iPhone. Munster, however, still expects China Mobile to sell the iPhone in the second half of 2013. In mid-afternoon trading, Apple dropped $27.07, or 4.70%, to $548.78.

10:44 EDTAAPLNetflix retreats after cut to sell on competition, cost concerns
The shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after research firm Evercore ISI downgraded the stock to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to increase its investments and the return from those investments is uncertain, the firm contends. WHAT'S NEW: In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors, Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. The analyst noted that Apple (AAPL) recently obtained a three month exclusive deal to stream content form Time Warner's (TWX) HBO Now, while Yahoo (YHOO), Amazon (AMZN), and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWSA) are all reportedly interested in obtaining streaming rights to "Seinfeld." Netflix's international expansion will not be sufficient to offset the increased competition, especially because foreign viewers are likely to watch less TV and be less interested in paying for TV content, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Netflix will face more competition from other Internet TV services overseas than in the U.S., according to Sena, who cut his 2015 consolidated operating income estimate for the company by 26% to $381M from $517M previously. In addition to cutting his rating, Sena lowered his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix sank $16, or 3.7%, to $422.
