13:23 EDTNFLXBattleground: 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.

10:44 EDTNFLXNetflix retreats after cut to sell on competition, cost concerns
The shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after research firm Evercore ISI downgraded the stock to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to increase its investments and the return from those investments is uncertain, the firm contends. WHAT'S NEW: In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors, Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. The analyst noted that Apple (AAPL) recently obtained a three month exclusive deal to stream content form Time Warner's (TWX) HBO Now, while Yahoo (YHOO), Amazon (AMZN), and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWSA) are all reportedly interested in obtaining streaming rights to "Seinfeld." 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. Furthermore, Netflix will face more competition from other Internet TV services overseas than in the U.S., according to Sena, who cut his 2015 consolidated operating income estimate for the company by 26% to $381M from $517M previously. In addition to cutting his rating, Sena lowered his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix sank $16, or 3.7%, to $422.

07:52 EDTNFLXNetflix downgraded at Evercore ISI
As previously reported, Evercore ISI downgraded Netflix to Sell from Hold. The firm downgraded shares and reduced its price target to $380 from $450 due to increasing competition among existing and emerging distributors combined with content providers who are becoming increasingly leveraged to new channels through OTT offerings of their own. Evercore ISI believes intensifying competition will necessitate increased investment with uncertain returns and lowered estimates.
