16:49 EDTNFLXS&P ends week little changed amid earnings deluge
The S&P 500 finished little changed this week as mixed U.S. economic data and continued geopolitical uncertainty offset strong earnings from a number of major companies and upbeat overseas economic data. MACRO NEWS: U.S. economic data was mixed, as fewer than expected jobless claims were reported and durable goods orders for June were slightly higher than expected, but new home sales for June and a preliminary purchasing managers' index for July came in below expectations... Investors received some positive economic news from overseas, as HSBC's preliminary China purchasing managers' index for July reached an 18-month high. Meanwhile, a preliminary PMI for the euro zone for July came in at 54, versus 52.8 in June... Ongoing conflicts between Israel and Hamas and Russia and Ukraine kept investors on edge, with Friday reports indicating that no truce accord had been reached in Israel and that Russia was building up its troop presence along the Ukrainian border. COMPANY NEWS: Among the notable companies whose stocks rose after they reported quarterly results were Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Allergan (AGN) and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). Notable companies whose stocks sold off following their results included Netflix (NFLX), Harley-Davidson (HOG), General Motors (GM), Boeing (BA), McDonald's (MCD) and Pandora (P)... McDonald's was also hit this week by revelations that its restaurants in China had sold expired meat that was allegedly intentionally supplied by a China-based company. Yum! Brands (YUM) and a provider of products to Starbucks (SBUX) are also believed to have bought and sold expired meat from the supplier... In M&A news, Bloomberg reported that real estate website operator Zillow (Z) held talks about buying its rival, Trulia (TRLA). Both stocks surged. Shares of SodaStream (SODA) also rallied after Bloomberg reported that the company is in talks about selling itself to an investment firm that would take the beverage system maker private... On Monday, hedge fund manager Bill Ackman promised on CNBC that his presentation about Herbalife (HLF) would show why the company "is going to collapse." But the shares actually surged higher during and immediately after Ackman's presentation. Ackman has a large short position in the stock and notably alleged it is a pyramid scheme... BlackBerry's (BBRY) CEO told the Financial Times that his company was in early talks about partnering with companies to target the enterprise markets, in order to counter a recently announced partnership between Apple and IBM (IBM). INDEXES: For the week, the Dow fell 0.83% to 16,960.57, the Nasdaq rose 0.4% to 4,449.56, and the S&P was flat at 1,978.34.

12:51 EDTVRSNOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday and on track to end a week marked by a torrent of earnings reports on a definite down note. Some high-profile disappointments weighed on the major averages, as Visa (V) and Amazon.com (AMZN) both fell significantly after their quarterly reports last night, dragging on the Dow and Nasdaq, respectively. The domestic economic calendar’s sole release of consequence, the durable goods orders report, came out before the open and was better than expected, but that did little to brighten the market's negative tone. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., durable goods orders rebounded 0.7% in June after a 1.0% decline in the prior month, beating expectations for June increase of 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Amazon.com fell 10% after the e-commerce giant reported in-line second quarter revenue but a much higher than expected loss. A number of analysts responded to the news by downgrading the stock, while several others cut their price targets on the shares... Visa reported Q3 earnings per share and revenue that topped consensus forecasts, but its fiscal year EPS growth outlook was trimmed its fiscal year revenue growth view to be in the 9-10% range from its prior forecast for low double-digit constant revenue growth in the 10-11% range. Shares of the Dow Jones Industrial Average component slid 4% following the report and guidance. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Datalink (DTLK), which jumped 17%, Mellanox (MLNX), which rose 13%, and VeriSign (VRSN), which gained 11%. Among the noteworthy losers was WellCare (WCG), which plunged 20% after the managed care company pre-announced significantly weaker than expected results. Also lower following their earnings reports were Swift Transport (SWFT), which fell nearly 15%, and Pandora (P), which dropped about 13%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 131.61, or 0.77%, to 16,952.19, the Nasdaq was down 24.45, or 0.55%, to 4,447.66, and the S&P 500 was down 9.04, or 0.45%, to 1,978.94.

10:50 EDTNFLXNetflix retreats, analysts remain cautious as earnings miss estimate
Shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after several research firms reiterated their negative outlook on the stock following the company's second quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Netflix reported Q2 earnings per share of $1.15, missing the consensus forecast of analysts by 1c, on revenue of $1.15B, which fell short of $1.33B consensus forecast. The company reported Q2 total streaming net additions of 1.69M, growing its total streaming members to just over 50M. The company guided to Q3 EPS of 89c and revenue of $1.22B, missing the consensus forecasts of $1.06 and $1.38B, respectively. The company said it expects Q3 net additions of 3.69M, to grow its membership to 53.74M. ANALYST OPINION: After Netflix reported slightly weaker than expected Q2 results and its Q3 guidance came in slightly below expectations, Jefferies analyst Brian Fitzgerald noted that the company indicated that it could lower its 2015 profit margin guidance. Netflix said its margin outlook will depend on the amount it spends on content, Fitzgerald added. The analyst believes that rising content costs pose a risk to the stock. He increased his price target on the shares to $350 from $300 but kept an Underperform rating on the stock. Also staying cautious on Netflix was research firm Bernstein. After Netflix suggested that its domestic margins may not rise as much as previously thought, the firm thinks the statement implies that either the company's subscriber growth could drop significantly or it may need to invest more in content. Additionally, Bernstein believes that the company's strong international guidance was based on the launch of new markets whose early results are difficult to predict. The outlook for the company's domestic subscription growth is still uncertain, but should become clearer in Q4 or the first quarter of 2015, added Bernstein, which kept a $260 price target and Underperform rating on the stock. Meanwhile, Citigroup continued to have an upbeat outlook on the company's fundamentals and its growth outlook, but kept a Neutral rating on the shares due to the stock's valuation. WHAT'S NOTABLE: A number of firms remained upbeat on Netflix, as Cantor said that the company has several positive catalysts, while JPMorgan called its results solid. Cantor kept a Buy rating on the stock, while JPMorgan reiterated its Overweight rating. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix fell $19.78, or 4.3% to $432.17.

14:38 EDTNFLXEarnings Preview: Analysts bullish on Netflix international expansion
Netflix (NFLX) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Monday, July 21 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Netflix is an Internet subscription service that allows members to watch TV shows and movies through DVD and on-demand streaming. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.16 on revenue of $1.33B. The consensus range is 93c-$1.42 for EPS, and $1.26B-$1.34B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Netflix reported first quarter EPS of 86c against estimates of 83c, on revenue of $1.27B against estimates of $1.27B. It reported Q1 domestic net additions of 2.25M with total domestic members at Q1-end of 35.67M. Netflix also reported Q1 net international subscriber additions of 1.75M. The company gave Q2 guidance at that time of $1.12. It expects to add 520,000 domestic subscribers in Q2, 940,000 international subscribers in Q2, and total members to reach 49.81 at Q2-end. The company projects 60M-90M U.S. subscribers in the long-term. NEWS: Netflix raised its membership rate in early May by $1.00 to $8.99 for new subscribers while existing subscriber rates will be frozen for two years. A couple of weeks into the rate increase, Netflix said that it has seen "small customer reaction." Netflix said that it would significant expand internationally and specifically in Europe for 2H14. It plans to expand its content breath in upcoming quarters with "meaningful" originals in each market that could compete with "the top end of cable." Speaking on CNBC, CEO Reed Hastings added that he does not expect Netflix to introduce advertising now or in the near future. STREET RESEARCH: Several analyst firms, including Pacific Crest, RW Baird, JPMorgan and Topeka, are bullish on the company due to optimism for Netflix's international expansion that appears to be accelerating. Pacific Crest added that the company's international subscribers will likely surpass expectations. Citigroup, meanwhile, lowered 2014-2017 estimates to reflect the costs of the launch of service in the European market. Ahead of the Q2 earnings report, RW Baird expects solid Q2 results and Q3 forecast to reflect new market dilution. MKM Partners also believes that the company's Q2 results will likely beat expectations, adding that the stock could double or triple in the next four or five years. PRICE ACTION: Netflix shares have risen more than to 29% since the first day of trading following the company's Q1 report. In Monday mid-day trading ahead of Q2 report, Netflix shares are trading up 1.8%.
