14:35 EDTAAAlcoa to curtail 443,000 mtpy of alumina refining capacity at Suralco
Lightweight metals leader Alcoa announced that it plans to curtail 443,000 metric tons per year of alumina refining capacity at Suralco in Suriname. In addition, the company and the Government of Suriname have agreed to pursue a transaction for a Government-owned entity to acquire the Suralco operations. The curtailment and potential transaction are in line with Alcoa’s recent announcement to review upstream capacity for possible curtailment or divestiture and the company’s strategic goal to create a globally competitive commodity business. The curtailment, which represents one digester, is expected to be complete by April 30. Both parties now intend to pursue a transaction where a Government-owned entity would acquire Suralco, including the mining, refining and Afobaka hydroelectric operations. Following the appropriate due diligence, the parties are targeting to reach agreement on the proposed transaction by July 1. The company will work closely with unions and employees to reduce the impact of the curtailment on affected employees by offering fair severance packages. The Paranam refinery and related mining operations employ approximately 700 people, in addition to contracted personnel. The net financial impact associated with the curtailment is not expected to be material to the company’s earnings.

10:44 EDTNFLXNetflix 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.

As previously reported, Evercore ISI downgraded Netflix to Sell from Hold. The firm downgraded shares and reduced its price target to $380 from $450 due to increasing competition among existing and emerging distributors combined with content providers who are becoming increasingly leveraged to new channels through OTT offerings of their own. Evercore ISI believes intensifying competition will necessitate increased investment with uncertain returns and lowered estimates.
