17:56 EDTNVDAMicron plunges after Q3 results, guidance impacted by PC headwinds
Shares of PC related memory chip maker Micron Technology (MU) are plunging after reporting third quarter financial results and fourth quarter guidance that missed analyst expectations. WHAT'S NEW: After the close, Micron reported Q3 earnings per share of 54c on revenue of $3.85B, both shy of analyst estimates of 56c and $3.9B, respectively. Citing "near-term headwinds driven primarily by weakness in PC sector," Micron gave a fourth quarter revenue view of $3.45B-$3.7B which was significantly lower than analyst expectations of $4.16B. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On the company's earnings conference call, Micron said, consistent with prior expectations, "We are forecasting DRAM industry supply bit growth in the mid-20s in calendar 2015 and in the low-to-mid 20s in 2016." The company said it sees DRAM gross margins for Q4 down mid-single digits sequentially. Additionally, the chip maker said it sees Q4 DRAM bit growth flat to up low single digits. ANALYST TAKE: On June 22, Micron was downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs. Goldman analyst Mark Delaney downgraded Micron Technology to Sell saying rising DRAM supply will lower selling prices and contract margins. Delaney expects DRAM prices to drop up to 30% over the next three quarters and cut his price target for shares to $19 from $27. On the same day, JP Morgan lowered its price target on Micron shares to $33 from $37. The firm also lowered its estimates for Micron citing lower than anticipated DRAM pricing in the past three months. The firm, however, kept an Overweight rating on Micron, saying improving demand in other segments like mobile and the company's decision to not hold inventory during Q3 should help offset the DRAM weakness. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Micron are lower by 11.5% in after- hours trading to $21.25. OTHER PC RELATED STOCKS: In after-hours trading, PC related chip makers are also lower, with Intel Corporation (INTC) down 0.9%, NVIDIA (NVDA) lower by 1.1%, and AMD (AMD) down fractionally. Others trading lower include Microsoft (MSFT), SanDisk (SNDK), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), and Seagate (STX).

08:25 EDTCBSNetflix on pace to have larger audience than all networks, FBR says
FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett says that while Netflix (NFLX) is not rated by Nielsen (NLSN), the 10B hours streamed in Q1 reported by the company are equivalent to having a 24-hour rating of 2.6, on par with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. And while ratings at broadcasters are falling on average, Netflix is growing its ratings at a 40%-plus compound annual rate, Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note. At this pace, Netflix in a year will have a larger 24-hour audience than all broadcast networks, he contends. Regarding last night's 7-for-1 stock split announcement, Crockett says the move reflects management's confidence in the "durability of the recent stock surge." For perspective, three years ago Netflix shares were around $60. This morning they are trading up $18.69 to $699.88 in the pre-market. Crockett has an Outperform rating on the streaming service with a $900 price target.

17:02 EDTPOSTPost Holdings provides additional avian influenza update
Post Holdings provided an update with respect to the recent avian influenza outbreak affecting Post's Michael Foods egg business. As reported on May 27, a company-owned flock in Nebraska tested positive for AI. Several rounds of subsequent testing did not confirm the presumptive positive, and the flock was today released from quarantine by the USDA. As a result, the company's total affected egg supply is now approximately 25% of its annualized egg volume commitments. As a result of aggressive cost management, discontinuation of certain product lines and pricing actions, Post management continues to expect the negative impact of AI for fiscal 2015 on Adjusted EBITDA to be in line with previous guidance of approximately $20M.
