14:29 EDTCODEEarnings Preview: Texas Instruments down 9% over last three months
Semiconductor maker Texas Instruments (TXN) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the close on Monday, October 20, with a conference call scheduled for 5:30 pm ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 71c on revenue of $3.46B. The consensus range is 66c-74c for EPS on revenue of $3.44B-$3.5B, according to First Call. Along with its last earnings report, Texas Instruments guided to Q3 EPS of 66c-76c on revenue of $3.31B-$3.59B. LAST QUARTER: On July 21, Texas Instruments reported second quarter EPS of 62c, which was higher than analysts' consensus of 59c. The company's revenue of $3.29B exceeded analysts' expectation of $3.27B. Texas Instruments noted that the restructuring changes which occurred in Q2 are positioned to be nil in Q3 and noted that it anticipated utilization in Q3 to remain consistent with Q2 levels. NEWS: On September 18, Texas Instruments increased its quarterly dividend by 13% to 34c. WHAT'S NOTABLE: After the close on October 9, Microchip (MCHP), which develops microcontroller and analog semiconductors, said that it had experienced a number of negative trends during the quarter, including a weaker than usual September, weakness in China, and significant inventory builds at its distributor customers. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it reports sales from distribution on a sell-through basis and that it does business with over 80,000 customers. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future." STREET RESEARCH: Analysts were fairly quiet on Texas Instruments during the quarter. The day after the company issued its Q2 earnings report, Sterne Agee believed that Texas Instruments' commentary on 4G telecom, auto and industrial strength should be positive for Spansion (CODE). RBC Capital noted on the same day that Texas Instruments had "strong" Q2 results, particularly in its execution, while its operating margin leverage was "impressive. The firm maintained a $57 price target and Outperform rating on the stock. On July 24, Tigress Financial upgraded Texas Instruments to Neutral from Underperform. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, Texas Instruments' shares are down about 9%. Since October 10, the day after Microchip's warning on the industry correction it believes has begun, Texas Instruments shares are down over 3%. In afternoon trading before tonight's report, Texas Instruments was up 1.7% to $44.41.

13:22 EDTIMAXEarnings Preview: Netflix falls after HBO announced plans of streaming service
Netflix (NFLX) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, October 15 with a conference call scheduled for 6:00 pm ET. Netflix is an Internet subscription service that allows members to watch TV shows and movies through DVD and on-demand streaming. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 93c on revenue of $1.41B. The consensus range is 86c-$1.24 for EPS, and $1.39B-$1.43B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Netflix reported second quarter EPS of $1.15 against estimates of $1.16, on revenue of $1.15B against estimates of $1.33B.

Netflix gave Q3 EPS guidance of 89c and revenue guidance of $1.22B. It also expects to add 3.69M net additions, with international approaching contribution profitability. Netflix said it can achieve U.S.-like margins in its international business. During its Q2 earnings interview, Netflix said it sees a dip in free cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015 as company expands original content. NEWS: Netflix launched in several countries in the past quarter, including France, Germany, Gelgium Austria, Switzerland, and Luxemburg. It also signed a deal with Weinstein Co. to release a feature film sequel to "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" that will be released to a number of IMAX (IMAX) theaters. Netflix signed Judd Apatow to a two-year commitment for an original comedy series, and Adam Sandler to star in four feature films. The company announced a peering deal with Time Warner Cable (TWC) for faster streams and direct access. In a recent post on Facebook, CEO Reed Hastings said the company passed Time Warner's HBO in subscriber revenue. HBO, however, announced plans today to launch a standalone streaming service in the U.S. that does not require a cable TV subscription. STREET RESEARCH: MKM Partners said Netflix's international opportunity is larger than most realize and will eventually be able to provide a global product. The company's price target was raised at RBC Capital due to the opportunities in new European markets, along with favorable survey results in the U.S. and the U.K. Barclays and BTIG upgraded the company, saying international estimates are likely achievable no longer see the stock as underperforming its peers. BTIG expects Netflix's streaming service may reach 100M subscribers worldwide by 2017. Ahead of Q3 earnings, Canaccord said Netflix will likely report in-line results with continued strong subscriber additions and improved international performance. PRICE ACTION: Netflix shares have fell more than to 3.31% since the first day of trading following the company's Q2 report. In Wednesday mid-day trading ahead of Q3 report, Netflix shares are trading down 2.67%.
