11:08 EDTACI, ANRPeabody plunges after Moody's lowers credit rating
Shares of coal miner Peabody (BTU) are lower in late morning trading after Moody's Investors Service downgraded the company's credit rating last night. WHAT'S NEW: Moody's Investors Service downgraded the ratings of Peabody, including the corporate family rating, to B3 from B2, probability of default rating to B3-PD from B2-PD. The firm noted that the outlook is negative. Moody's said that the downgrade "reflects our expectation of continued deterioration in the company's credit metrics, more precipitous than we had forecasted previously, due to the ongoing decline in the seaborne metallurgical coal markets." The firm expects that the company's Debt/EBITDA, as adjusted, will approach 9x in 2015. Moody's said that although it anticipates some recovery in 2016, it sees the leverage remaining elevated at around 7x. Absent asset sales, the company will generate negative free cash flows in 2015 and 2016, Moody's said in the report. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Moody's said that a further downgrade would be considered if liquidity deteriorated, free cash flows were repeatedly negative and/or Debt/EBITDA exceeded 8x on a sustained basis. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Peabody are down over 9.5% to $2.08 in late morning trading, rebounding from an earlier low of $1.92. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the coal mining space include Alpha Natural Resources (ANR), Arch Coal (ACI) and CONSOL Energy (CNX).

08:25 EDTDISNetflix 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.
