13:40 EDTFCXAmended settlement agreement announced between Credit Suisse, Freeport
On March 16, an Addendum to the Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement, Compromise and Release was entered into with respect to the consolidated stockholder derivative litigation captioned In Re: Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold (FCX) Derivative Litigation, C.A. No. 8145-VCN. The Addendum modifies the terms of the settlement in order to resolve potential derivative claims against Credit Suisse Securities (CS) in connection with its engagement to act as lead financial advisor to the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of Freeport-McMoRan with respect to the company’s 2013 acquisitions of Plains Exploration & Production Company and McMoRan Exploration Co., which potential claims were previously excluded from the settlement as set forth in the Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement, Compromise and Release filed on January 15. As set forth in the Addendum, the original settlement consideration will be increased by $16.25M, consisting of a $10M cash payment to the company by Credit Suisse, and a credit of $6.25M to be redeemable by the company in connection with future assignments Credit Suisse performs. The Supplemental Cash Amount, together with the original settlement amount, less plaintiffs’ attorneys’ fees and expenses as awarded by the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, will be distributed to the company’s stockholders as a special dividend. The settlement is subject to specified conditions, including final approval by the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware. The settling defendants and Credit Suisse vigorously deny all allegations of wrongdoing or fault but entered into the settlement to avoid the costs and distraction of continued litigation.

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.
