20:11 EDTNFLX, CMCSA, CMCSKTime Warner, Hulu talks heat up over issue of current seasons, WSJ says
Time Warner's (TWX) negotiations to potentially buy into Hulu, a joint venture of Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK), Fox (FOX, FOXA) and Disney (DIS), have been heating up lately over the issue of Hulu subscribers being able to view current-season TV shows, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing sources. Though the feature is a differentiator for Hulu when compared to Netflix (NFLX) and Amazon (AMZN), Time Warner believes the presence of full, current seasons contributes to cord cutting, the report says.

18:07 EDTCMCSK, CMCSA'Kung Fu Panda 3' swings to first, 'Finest Hours' lands in choppy waters
"Kung Fu Panda 3" topped the box office in its U.S. debut while nautical disaster drama "The Finest Hours" floundered.

BOX OFFICE RUNNERS-UP: "The Revenant," also from Fox, grossed $12.4M. Disney's (DIS) "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" took in an additional $10.8M and stands at $1.98B globally, while the company's "The Finest Hours" earned $10.3M in its domestic start despite an estimated $70M-$80M budget.

12:53 EDTCMCSK, CMCSABox Office Battle: 'Kung Fu Panda 3' expected to kick 'Revenant' from top spot
DreamWorks Animation's (DWA) "Kung Fu Panda 3" featuring Jack Black is expected to break the record for the largest January opening for an animated feature, topping the opening of "The Nut Job" in 2014. The first two films in the "Kung Fu Panda" franchise took in $60.2M and $47.6M, respectively, in their opening weekends and grossed a total of nearly $1.3B worldwide. With a strong base of Po the Panda fans and the popularity of a recent TV show, conservative early estimates say "Panda 3" is expected to bring in $35M-$50M. Also opening this weekend are Disney's (DIS) "The Finest Hours," starring Chris Pine, and Open Road Films' "Fifty Shades of Black," starring Marlon Wayans. "The Finest Hours" may disappoint, with expectations topping out at $10M in its opening weekend. "Fifty Shades of Black," meanwhile, is the latest spoof movie from the team of Wayans and Michael Tiddes from "Haunted House" fame. The last film from Wayans had an opening weekend of $8.8M, and this one is currently expected to take in a similar amount. Both films will battle with Fox's (FOX, FOXA) survival story and Oscar contender "The Revenant," starring Leonardo Dicaprio, and Disney's (DIS) "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" for spots in the top five. "The Revenant" and "Star Wars" should each take in $9M-$12M even as they continue to lose theaters this coming weekend. Other publicly traded companies involved in filmmaking include Lionsgate (LGF), Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK), and Sony (SNE).

12:22 EDTNFLXEarnings Watch: Amazon expected to report strong Q4 results after holiday season
Amazon.com (AMZN) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, January 28 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Amazon.com is an online retail company that also provides consumer electronics and cloud computing services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.56 on revenue of $35.93B. The consensus range is 60c-$2.41 for EPS, and $35.11B-$36.75B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Amazon.com reported third quarter EPS of 17c against estimates of (13c), on revenue of $25.4B against estimates of $24.91B. At that time, the company gave Q4 revenue guidance of $33.5B-$36.75B and Q4 operating income guidance of $80M-$1.28B, compared to $591M in the year-ago period. Amazon also reported Q3 Amazon Web Services revenue $2.085B and AWS operating income $521M. The company said Prime Day added 2% to its global revenue growth rate. NEWS: In the past quarter, ChannelAdvisor said that Amazon outpaced the industry with a 16.8% holiday SSS growth. Specifically, Amazon's SSS grew 28.9% on Thanksgiving, up 20% on Black Friday, up 20.5% on Cyber Sunday, and up 25.6% on Cyber Monday. During that time, Amazon's Fire tablet was the top-selling product. According to a Re/code report in December, Amazon is now accounting for more than half of all sales growth in U.S. eCommerce. In Q4, Amazon also announced expansions for Prime Now in Los Angeles, San Diego, Baltimore, Austin and Chicago. It began delivering alcohol in Manhattan and offered delivery from local stores in China. By the end of 2015, Amazon was offering Prime Now in 26 cities. The company plans to open fulfillment centers in Columbus, Massachusetts and Canada. It also also build an Amazon Wind Farm in Ohio. Amazon announced that it will shutter its payments service and Groupon-style daily deals service in 2016. However, it also announced that it tripled its selection of free games and apps since launching Amazon Underground. Amazon held early tests of cargo aircraft as it looks to establish its own freight operations. During the Golden Globe awards, Amazon's "Mozart in the Jungle" received two awards, while its competitor Netflix (NFLX) left empty-handed. STREET RESEARCH: In the long-term, Citi said Amazon has a path towards $20 per adjusted EPS by 2018 due to an ongoing mix shift in the retail business and stellar growth in its high margin cloud business. The company was also initiated with an Overweight at Pacific Crest, and had its price target raised at Nomura and BofA.Merrill, citing the company's aim to be part of the consumer purchase process and its lead in both eCommerce and the cloud. Piper Jaffray said Amazon's Prime membership has been the most impressive despite a large base of users. It expected Amazon to add 8M-9M Prime subscribers during the full holiday season, ahead of its previous expectation of 6M-7M. Piper Jaffray added that estimates are mis-modeling Amazon's margin expansion in 2016 and believes the company's unit growth will likely exceed expectations. Ahead of the Q4 earnings report, Stifel said Amazon revenue is expected to beat expectations due to healthy eCommerce trends, strong Prime adoption and strong adoption of AWS. Bernstein also said that the street margin outlook for Amazon continues to be too low, and believes the company is poised to beat street expectations. PRICE ACTION: Amazon.com shares are near flat over the last three months. In Thursday trading ahead of the Q3 report, Amazon.com shares are higher by 6.5%.
