06:24 EDTGOOGResearch shows Google hurts users by skewing search results, WSJ reports
New research by two U.S. academics shows that Google is harming internet users and violating competition laws by skewing search results to favor its own products and services, the Wall Street Journal reports. The study may present a “significant twist” in the European Union’s antitrust investigation into Google’s supposed anticompetitive practices, the report says. The research shows that users were 45% more likely to click on results that were ranked purely by relevance as opposed to the way Google ranks them currently, the Wall Street Journal says.Reference Link

Citi analyst Mark May downgraded Netflix to Neutral with the stock up 49% since his upgrade on April 10 and 99% year-to-date. May believes more signs of traction in recently launched international markets are needed before shares can reach his upside case of over $950. Further, he points out that the stock has sold off meaningfully following the Q2 and Q3 earnings reports in each of the last three years. May has a $722 price target on the streaming service. Shares of Netflix closed yesterday down $2.58 to $678.61 after billionaire investor Carl Icahn disclosed that he exited his position in the name.

08:25 EDTNFLXNetflix on pace to have larger audience than all networks, FBR says
FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett says that while Netflix (NFLX) is not rated by Nielsen (NLSN), the 10B hours streamed in Q1 reported by the company are equivalent to having a 24-hour rating of 2.6, on par with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. And while ratings at broadcasters are falling on average, Netflix is growing its ratings at a 40%-plus compound annual rate, Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note. At this pace, Netflix in a year will have a larger 24-hour audience than all broadcast networks, he contends. Regarding last night's 7-for-1 stock split announcement, Crockett says the move reflects management's confidence in the "durability of the recent stock surge." For perspective, three years ago Netflix shares were around $60. This morning they are trading up $18.69 to $699.88 in the pre-market. Crockett has an Outperform rating on the streaming service with a $900 price target.

Earlier on Tuesday, Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMI), Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm Global Trading -- an affiliate of Qualcomm (QCOM) -- announced the formation of SMIC Advanced Technology Research & Development, an equity joint venture company.

Google said on its blog that it is launching the News Lab, "a new effort at Google to empower innovation at the intersection of technology and media. Our mission is to collaborate with journalists and entrepreneurs to help build the future of media. And we’re tackling this in three ways: though ensuring our tools are made available to journalists around the world -- and that newsrooms know how to use them; by getting helpful Google data sets in the hands of journalists everywhere; and through programs designed to build on some of the biggest opportunities that exist in the media industry today. The News Lab is a global effort, with teams in the U.S., U.K., France, and Germany to start -- and we’re also powering the training and research arm of Google’s Digital News Initiative in Europe. Google has created many technologies and platforms that have engaged the media industry. As both the media landscape and technology continue to evolve, we believe we can create a more informed world if technologists and journalists work together -- and we’re excited to be part of the effort."

06:04 EDTAMZNOracle says extending enterprise cloud portfolio
At a live event yesterday, Oracle (ORCL) Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform "extends Oracle's leadership with the world's broadest and deepest portfolio" of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers. "Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That's an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter," said Ellison. "Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier (AMZN) and it's one-tenth their price."

14:34 EDTGOOGGoogle's Nest announces redesigned, refreshed product line
Google's Nest Labs announced refreshes and redesigns across the company’s entire product portfolio, including the introduction of Nest Cam, the second generation Nest Protect, new features for the Nest Learning Thermostat, and a new app. Nest Cam is a 1080p camera featuring a stand as well as improved motion alerts and night vision, offering live video streaming to a phone or computer to keep an eye on the home while the Nest user is away. Cam users can also subscribe to Nest Aware with Video History for an additional monthly fee to gain access to video history, alert summaries, advanced motion sensing, and more. Also, Nest is piloting the ability for YouTube creators to stream directly to YouTube Live from Nest Cam. Nest Protect is the company's second generation smoke and carbon monoxide alarm, offering a custom, split-spectrum sensor that uses two wavelengths of light to look for different types of fires. Building on Nest’s energy partner program, Nest is partnering with home insurance companies to help Nest Protect users save money on home insurance policies. Through Nest Safety Rewards, a participating Nest insurance partner may offer a discount on a Nest user's annual premiums. American Family and Liberty Mutual Insurance are the first insurance partners to provide offers as part of Nest Safety Rewards. Separately, the updated Nest Learning Thermostat has the capability to notify customers when temperatures drop to help avoid frozen pipes, and it also adds new integrations with other Nest products. Finally, the redesigned Nest app 5.0 brings together all three Nest products across multiple platforms. Nest Cam is available for immediate purchase with a suggested retail price of $199. It will begin shipping this month. The camera is set to launch next month in Belgium, France, Ireland, Netherlands, and the U.K. Nest Aware with Video History can be purchased as a 10-day or 30-day subscription for $10 or $30 per month, respectively. Nest Protect is available for immediate purchase for a suggested retail price of $99, and will begin shipping next month. Nest app 5.0 is available in the Google Play Store and iOS App Store. Nest Learning Thermostat software 4.5 will begin rolling out immediately and will take up to two weeks to reach all Nest customers.

FedEx (FDX) executives, responding to a question about "a prominent user of parcel services," likely referring to Amazon.com (AMZN), reportedly exploring its own solutions for delivery, said that "what a lot of people lose in this conversation" is that setting up a transportation network is extremely capital intensive, requires very sophisticated information technology and takes a very long time to build out to scale. FedEx also said that "research has indicated time and time again that a uniformed person with proper identification showing up at your doorstep is an important issue for customers" and that the consistency of customer experience is very critical. FedEx noted that it will continue to monitor these situations, but that it feels "pretty comfortable in terms of our strategy going forward and our ability to serve the e-commerce market and our customers."

08:47 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $780 from $600 at Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin raised her price target for shares of Netflix (NFLX) to $780 saying Charter (CHTR) and others offering the streaming service should drive U.S. subscription growth. Further, the company's international subscribers have up to three times faster profit trajectories than their U.S. counterparts, Martin tells investors today in a research note. Netflix will also add advertising revenue "someday," the analyst believes. She keeps a Buy rating on the stock. Netflix shares have sold off recently on Alibaba's (BABA) newly announced streaming service, Martin notes. But she points out China was not in her estimates for Netflix and that she doesn't expect a negative impact on other regions. Shares of Netflix closed yesterday at $654.02.

As previously reported, MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Buy, noting that growth in its user base is stalling out and he sees no catalyst for sentiment to improve in the next two quarters, besides a possible bid from Google (GOOG). Sanderson thinks the company's CEO search brings with it some uncertainty and likely delays user experience improvements, unless Jack Dorsey takes over full-time, but that would require him to give up his CEO post at Square. The firm lowered its estimates on Twitter and cut its price target on the shares to $39 from $57.
