13:16 EDTGOOGGoogle confirms Google Fiber coming to Atlanta, Charlotte, two other cities
Google said in a blog post, "It’s been nearly five years since we offered to build a fiber-optic network in one U.S. city as an experiment — and were met with overwhelming enthusiasm. Now, Google Fiber is live in Kansas City, Provo and Austin, and we've started to see how gigabit Internet, with speeds up to 100 times faster than today’s basic broadband, can transform cities. It can give them new platforms for economic development and new ways of using technology to improve life for their citizens. And, around the country, it seems to be catching on... Today, we’re happy to announce that Google Fiber is coming to 18 cities across four new metro areas: Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, and Raleigh-Durham. We can’t wait to see what people and businesses across the Southeast U.S. do with gigabit speeds." Google adds, "We’re also continuing to explore bringing fiber to five additional metro areas—Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Antonio and San Jose, and will have updates on these potential Fiber cities later this year."

05:10 EDTLYVLive Nation provides statement regarding Greek Theater
Live Nation stated, "The Greek Theatre is an incredible Los Angeles treasure, owned by the people of this city. Live Nation has delivered a superior proposal that will set a new standard for this iconic venue, with plans to invest heavily to return it to its rightful place as a world-class entertainment destination for fans and artists while being sensitive to neighbors in the surrounding community. We remain confident that the full City Council will be guided by the merits of our proposal – not the political strong-arm tactics of our opponent. Selecting Live Nation's superior financial bid has far-reaching repercussions well beyond the Greek Theatre: much of the revenue generated by Live Nation will support critically-important Recreation and Parks programs throughout the entire city. Ultimately, the Greek Theatre contract will be awarded by the Board of Recreation and Parks Commissioners, which has already voted unanimously on behalf of Live Nation – joining Recreation and Parks staff and a panel of independent, expert evaluators. We outscored the Nederlander/AEG bid, earning 91% of all possible points compared to their total of 79%. Our commitment to Union labor at the venue is stronger. And our financial proposal is far superior, delivering nearly $10M more at a minimum, and a total of $30M more when comparing our guaranteed performance minimum to Nederlander's historic average. We also commit to investing more than twice as much in capital improvements as Nederlander, which failed to complete many of the improvements it promised years ago. Live Nation remains committed to operating the Greek Theatre to the highest standard, driven by hometown pride."

12:24 EDTNFLXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, as details of a reported bond buying program planned by the ECB offset weakness in the Dow after IBM's (IBM) earnings report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts rose 4.4% in December to a 1.89M rate, versus expectations for an increase of 1.2%, while building permits fell 1.9% to a rate of 1.03M, versus expectations of an increase of 0.8%. The Bank of Canada lowered its target for the overnight rate by one-quarter of one percentage point to 0.75% in response to the recent sharp drop in oil prices, which it said will be negative for growth and underlying inflation in Canada. Reports indicated that a proposal from the European Central Bank’s executive board is calling for it to begin making bond purchases of about EUR 50B per month and continue that easing program for at least one year. In Asia, the Bank of Japan refrained from expanding its stimulus program, although it expanded and extended its loan programs aimed at boosting bank lending. Also, the BoJ cut next fiscal year's CPI forecast to 1.0% from the 1.7% it had projected three months ago. COMPANY NEWS: Last night, IBM reported better than expected Q4 earnings, though its revenue and FY15 profit outlook trailed estimates, sending the stock down over 3% this morning. Citigroup cut its price target for IBM shares to $170 from $180 after reducing its sales and earnings estimates following the tech giant's Q4 results. Citi reiterated a Neutral rating on IBM, saying it wants to see stability in fundamentals and free cash flow growth before getting more positive on the name. Meanwhile, Jefferies said IBM's cash flow guidance for 2015 is "very weak" and that the company has yet to reach a bottom. The firm continues to believe the risk/reward for shares is skewed negatively and it kept an Underperform on IBM with a $130 price target following the company's Q4 results... Netflix (NFLX) jumped 17% to trade near $409 per share after the company reported stronger than expected fourth quarter results and a number of research firms raised their price targets for the stock while pointing out the company's global subscriber growth had exceeded expectations. Bucking the trend, FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett said Netflix's EPS would only have been in-line with the consensus outlook if non-operating items were excluded. He said he is less impressed with Netflix following its report and trimmed his price target on the stock to $400 from $425 while keeping a Neutral rating on the shares. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Northern Trust (NTRS), which rose 6%, and U.S. Bancorp (USB), which gained 3.5%. Among the noteworthy losers was Eldorado Gold (EGO), which dropped 19% after the company reported on its 2014 gold production, gave guidance on production in 2015, and its shares were downgraded at Credit Suisse, TD Securities and Canccord. Also lower was Acacia Research (ACTG), which fell more than 14% after a court granted a motion finding no infringement of certain method claims asserted by the company's Adaptix subsidiary against Apple(AAPL), Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), and HTC. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 42.03, or 0.24%, to 17,557.26, the Nasdaq was up 27.36, or 0.59%, to 4,682.21, and the S&P 500 was up 12.25, or 0.61%, to 2,034.80.

08:07 EDTGOOGUSPTO Examiner reconfirms patentability of Netlist's LRDIMM patent claims
Netlist (NLST) announced that the Examiner in the consolidated reexamination of U.S. Pat. No. 7,619,912 issued an Answer maintaining the patentability of 92 claims related to LRDIMM. The reexaminations were brought in the United States Patent and Trademark Office by Google (GOOG), Inphi Corporation, and SMART Modular Technologies. The 92 patentable claims are generally directed to the fundamental concept of rank multiplication which is integral to the design of the LRDIMM. The Examiner issued the Answer on January 14, 2015, in response to voluminous appeal briefs filed by Google, Inphi, and SMART Modular. The Examiner considered arguments from all parties and ultimately maintained his conclusions as to the patentability of these claims, while maintaining the rejection of 11 other claims. The parties will now have the opportunity to file rebuttal briefs before the reexamination proceeds to the Patent Trial and Appeals Board for oral arguments, likely later this year or early next. The '912 Patent is also the subject of litigation between Netlist and Google in the Northern District of California and Netlist and Inphi in the Central District of California. Both sets of litigation have been stayed pending the outcome of this and other reexamination proceedings.

14:17 EDTNFLXNetflix technical commentary ahead of earnings
The stock has been in a sideways consolidation pattern since a sharp downtrend began in October of last year. The approximate range has been a high at $350 and a low at $320. Breaks of either end of this range will be important determinants of the trend following earnings. A breakout above $350 would potentially reverse the current dominant downtrend. With over 8.5% of the trading float short, there could be substantial buy-to-cover pressure in the event of a positive surprise. Upside levels to watch above $350 would be at $357.95, $366.51, and $375.83. On an extreme positive surprise, the $380 area could be tested. If the news is negative, a break below the $320 area would likely lead to a resumption of the dominant downtrend. Support levels to watch would be at $310.25, $299.50, and $290.28. A breakdown below $300 would be long-term bearish for price, confirming a major top.

11:16 EDTNFLXCBS, Viacom climb following Stifel upgrades
Shares of CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIA, VIAB) are climbing after research firm Stifel upgraded the stocks to Buy from Hold. CBS owns the CBS network and other entertainment properties. Viacom owns a number of cable networks, including MTV and Nickelodeon. WHAT'S NEW: CBS' NFL rights leave it well-positioned to charge cable companies and other TV providers high fees, Stifel analyst Benjamin Mogil wrote in a note to investors today. Meanwhile, the company's strong ratings and lower production costs reduce its risk, Mogil stated. CBS has more opportunities when it comes to selling its content to Internet TV networks such as Netflix (NFLX), Mogil believes. The analyst set a $65 price target on the shares. Meanwhile, Mogil believes that Viacom should benefit from the adoption of ratings measurements other than Nielsen's (NLSN) tools. Viacom has complained that Nielsen's tools have underestimated its ratings by failing to adequately take into account new types of content consumption, the analyst noted. Viacom's recent expansion into new international markets should also improve its performance, Mogil stated. He set an $89 price target on the shares. ANOTHER TO WATCH: Mogil initiated coverage of Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA) with a $41 price target and Buy rating, saying that the company is well-positioned to benefit from its wide range of sports programming. He set a $41 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, CBS advanced 2.75% to $55, Viacom gained 2.5% to $68, and Twenty-First Century Fox rose 0.4% to $34.72.

As you may recall, we implemented an audio recognition system last year out of respect for copyright holders and to protect both our broadcasters and our brand. We knew it was equally important to ensure broadcasters had music options. Thus, the Twitch Music Library was born to offer safe passage through the less-than-clear legal landscape when it comes to audio rights. The Twitch Music Library features more than 500 songs provided by established and burgeoning labels, including Mad Decent, Dim Mak, Spinnin’ Records, OWSLA, Monstercat, Fool’s Gold, and many more. We are also announcing an experiment with music content creators: our beta Music category. The Music category—listed among the game titles you can designate for a broadcast—is for musicians to use for creating, performing, and presenting original music." Reference Link
