11:10 EDTAMZN, GOOGWorldwide tablet growth expected to slow to 7.2% in 2014, IDC says
The worldwide tablet market is expected to see a massive deceleration in 2014 with year-over-year growth slowing to 7.2%, down from 52.5% in 2013, according to a new forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC). At the core of this slowdown is the expectation that 2014 will represent the first full year of decline in Apple iPad shipments. Both the iPad and the overall market slowdown do not come as a surprise as device lifecycles for tablets have continued to lengthen, increasingly resembling those of PCs more than smartphones. "The tablet market continues to be impacted by a few major trends happening in relevant markets," said Ryan Reith, Program Director with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers. "In the early stages of the tablet market, device lifecycles were expected to resemble those of smartphones, with replacement occurring every 2-3 years. What has played out instead is that many tablet owners are holding onto their devices for more than 3 years and in some instances more than 4 years. We believe the two major drivers for longer than expected tablet lifecycles are legacy software support for older products, especially within iOS, and the increased use of smartphones for a variety of computing tasks." Publicly traded companies in the space include Samsung (SSNLF), Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Barnes & Noble (BKS). Reference Link
10:25 EDTNFLXNetflix drops after downbeat notes from Stifel, Citi
Shares of Netflix (NFLX) are sinking after two research firms issued cautious notes on the company. WHAT'S NEW: Netflix was downgraded to Hold from Buy by Scott Devitt, an analyst at Stifel. The reaction to Netflix's Q3 results indicate that investors are still focused on the company's domestic subscriber growth, the analyst stated. Netflix's penetration in the U.S. will continue to increase, but at a slower pace than in previous years, Devitt predicted. Moreover, the company's U.S. business may have started to slow before its international growth can compensate, the analyst warned. As a result, Netflix's subscriber growth may not beat investors' expectations for a period of time, Devitt stated. However, Netflix's longer term outlook remains compelling and the firm said it would become more constructive on shares in the low-$300 range. Meanwhile, Citigroup analyst Mark May wrote that Google data suggests that Netflix's trends have not improved in Q4 compared with Q3. Moreover, it is still unclear if Netflix's domestic subscriber growth has entered a downward trend, May believes. Also unclear is whether the company's results in its new foreign markets have been disappointing and whether it still has pricing power, May wrote. The analyst believes that the stock can rise significantly if the answers to these questions are resolved in Netflix's favor. However, he added that the uncertainties may not be resolved during the current quarter. May kept a Neutral rating on the stock with a $364 price target. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix dropped 3% to $345.52.
