08:13 EDTAMZNPendrell unit: Court rejects attempts to limit scope of DRM patents
ContentGuard Holdings, a subsidiary of Pendrell Corporation (PCO), announced that on Friday, March 20, Judge J. Rodney Gilstrap of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued a 144 page Claim Construction Order in lawsuits ContentGuard filed against several companies who continue to use its patented Digital Rights Management solutions without a license, including Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), DirecTV (DTV), Google (GOOG), HTC, Huawei, Motorola Mobility and Samsung Electronics (SSNLF). In his order, Judge Gilstrap interpreted the language in ContentGuard’s patents in a manner that fully preserves the breadth of ContentGuard’s patented Digital Rights Management technologies. These technologies were developed to enable the distribution of digital media over the Internet and other networks, including cellular and satellite networks, and provide innovative solutions to problems that were once thought to be unsolvable. “We are very pleased with the Court’s ruling,” commented James Baker, ContentGuard’s Vice President for Licensing and Strategic Development. “We believe these claim constructions demonstrate that the online stores defendants provide for buying and renting DRM-protected movies, videos, books, and music and devices that play, run, display or print this DRM-protected content infringe ContentGuard’s pioneering DRM patents.”

12:45 EDTTWXAnalyst says Apple deserves higher multiple ahead of TV streaming foray
Given Apple's (AAPL) reported foray into streaming TV, the stock's multiple should be higher, Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Media reports about Apple's new streaming TV service support Morgan Stanley's thesis that the stock should trade at a multiple of 18x-19x, Morgan Stanley analyst Kate Huberty wrote in a note to investors today. Companies with content platforms trade at that level, on average, the analyst noted. Apple's stock is currently trading slightly below 15 times consensus 2015 profit estimates for the company. Noting that Apple has already announced a new online streaming deal with Time Warner's (TWX) HBO, and the New York Post reported that the tech giant is willing to share some viewership data with content owners, Huberty thinks that an Apple TV service seems to be more likely now than in past years. The analyst reiterated her belief, expressed in a previous note, that Apple should be compared to other companies that provide content platforms. Like other platform companies, Apple charges premium prices, its products are used every day by consumers, it has recurring revenue ,and it has the opportunity to expand its total market, the analyst stated. According to Huberty, TV is an $800B market, and the TV streaming market may be ready for prime time, as 20% of pay TV customers plan to cut the cord in the next year, a Morgan Stanley survey showed. The analyst kept a $160 price target and Overweight rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Taking a less favorable view of Apple on March 18 was research firm Jefferies, which predicted that the growth of the company's iPhones would decelerate further next quarter. The firm predicted that strong iPhone sales in China would propel the tech giants profit for the current quarter more than 10% above expectations, but it kept a Hold rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Apple was fractionally higher near $128 per share.

13:23 EDTTWXBattleground: Oppenheimer weighs in on Netflix with positive note
The recent weakness in Netflix's (NFLX) stock has created a buying opportunity, Oppenheimer wrote in a note to investors today. Oppenheimer's upbeat note comes after research firm Stifel issued a positive note on the stock yesterday and a third firm, Evercore ISI, downgraded the shares to sell on Monday. BULLISH TAKE: Noting that Netflix's stock has dropped 15% from its 52-week high, Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein said that the decline creates a good buying opportunity ahead a number of "tier 1" original show launches by the company. History indicates that tier 1 original shows have the most impact on the company's net subscriber additions, the analyst stated. Worries about competition have weighed on the shares, but Netflix can beat the competition by using its data to provide superior programming, according to the analyst. He kept a $483 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. Stifel analyst Scott Devitt yesterday stated that concerns about the company's competition are overdone, as Netflix's positioning in the U.S. is as strong as ever and continues to improve as it adds more content. Time Warner's (TWX) upcoming launch of a video on demand service called HBO Now is the primary cause of the decline in Netflix's stock, Devitt contended, noting he views the HBO Now launch as "a non-event" for Netflix. Most Netflix subscribers who obtain HBO Now will probably keep both services, Devitt believes. BEARISH TAKE: Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena on Monday downgraded Netflix shares to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to raise its investments, and the return from those investments is uncertain, the analyst contended. In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. 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, adding that Netflix will face even more competition overseas than in the U.S. Sela reduced his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Netflix was little changed near $418 per share.
