12:08 EDTNFLXTiming of Rovi renewal with Charter a plus, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan said the timing of the closing of Rovi's (ROVI) renewal of its IP and programming guide agreement with Charter (CHTR) is advantageous given Rovi's other impending renewals and should give some confidence that large service provider renewals don't hinge on the outcome of the company's court case with Netflix (NFLX). However, the firm added that it would not be surprised to see more volatility in Rovi shares if court rulings favor Netflix and it kept a Neutral rating on the stock.

07:13 EDTNFLXNetflix upgraded to Outperform with $900 target at FBR Capital
FBR Capital upgraded Netflix to Outperform from Market Perform and raised its price target for shares to $900 from $400. The stock in premarket trading is up $61.91 to $537.37 after the streaming service reported Q1 results last night. FBR says its survey work with ClearVoice Research revealed that domestic Netflix subscribers "love the service more than TV." The firm now believes Netflix is very likely to move towards 180M global subscribers by 2020. It sees international streaming, with a market opportunity nearly six times the U.S., as supporting its new $900 price target. Netflix price targets are being raised around the Street following the company's Q1 results. Cantor took its target up to $580, Citigroup $584 and Needham $600. FBR at $900 is an outlier.

06:09 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $584 from $525 at Citigroup
Citigroup analyst Mark May raised his price target for Netflix shares to $584 saying the company posted "strong" Q1 results with a "favorable" outlook. May says both the streaming service's domestic and international subscriber growth exceeded expectations. Both segments benefited from original programming content that has been well received, May states. He views the Q1 results as evidence that Netflix is disrupting video viewing habits and keeps a Buy rating on the name. Shares of the company are up $57.81 to $533.27 in premarket trading following the last night's earnings report.

16:16 EDTNFLXNetflix sees shifting some U.S. marketing budget to international in Q2
Netflix stated in its Q1 investor letter: "In 2015, we expect to run ahead of our US contribution margin growth target of 200 bps/year on average because a greater share of global and original content costs will be absorbed by existing and new international territories as we continue to expand globally, since we allocate global content costs by geography. In addition, starting in Q2 we intend to shift some of our US marketing budget to international to take advantage of the substantial available growth opportunities. This, in the short term, drives down international contribution profits and drives up US contribution profits. We are still targeting 40% contribution margin in the US in 2020."

13:18 EDTNFLXNetflix technical commentary ahead of earnings
Ahead of results the stock is trading relatively close, on a percentage basis, to its 52-week high and life high at $489.28. The technical disposition of the stock has always been somewhat problematic given the large number of discontinuities, gaps, on the chart. Despite an extreme valuation, sentiment in the stock has not wavered from strongly bullish, leaving the more than 8.5% of shares short in the float vulnerable to squeezes. That in large measure has been the source of the discontinuities on the chart. In the past few months the stock has largely traded in a wide range of $400 at the low and $480 at the high. Breaks of either end of this range are likely to determine how shares trade post-earnings. On a move above $480 and the life high at $489.29 there is no resistance. If the upward trend from April 2013 until early March 2014 is projected forward in time, a price objective of $560 might be possible on very bullish news or outlook. But the move could be even stronger than that based on previous extreme reactions to earnings news. If the news disappoints with a bearish outlook relative to very high expectations in the name, the low at $400 could easily be tested. Below that support, the next downside objective could be at the $380 to $375 area. This has previously been a zone of support and resistance. A move to these levels would break the long-term uptrend which has paused for the last 13 months. A slow migration down to the $300 area might then be possible over time. That level has previously been important support for the stock. It along with the $480 level constitutes a large scale rectangle of a trading range from March 2014 onward which is best seen on a 5-year chart.

06:06 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $487 from $360 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Netflix shares to $487 from $360 after analyzing the company's total addressable market and potential penetration through 2020. Olson has a "relatively more positive bias" on Netflix after his analysis suggested the company's earnings growth from 2016-2020 will average around 50%. He keeps a Neutral rating on Netflix, however, encouraging investors to take advantage of entry points closer to $400. Olson slightly reduced his 2016 earnings estimates for the company to reflect its continued investments ahead of a "material" earnings growth phase. UBS yesterday upgraded Netflix to Buy from Neutral with a $565 price target. Shares of the streaming service closed yesterday up $20.11 to $474.68.
