08:25 EDTCMCSANetflix 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.

08:05 EDTNRGNRG Yield to acquire GE EFS' 25% interest in Desert Sunlight Solar Farm
NRG Yield, Inc. (NYLD), through its subsidiary NRG Yield Operating LLC, has entered into an agreement with GE Unit (GE) GE Energy Financial Services to acquire its 25% interest in the Desert Sunlight Solar Farm in Riverside, CA for $285M subject to customary working capital adjustments, plus the assumption of $287.4M of non-recourse project level debt. The acquisition, which provides NRG Yield with a total ownership of 137.5 megawatts of operating solar capacity, will place NRG Yield into a partnership with subsidiaries of NextEra Energy (NEE) and Sumitomo Financial (SMFG), who are the 50% and 25% owners of Desert Sunlight, respectively. The transaction is expected to increase both the annual run-rate EBITDA by approximately $45M and cash available for distribution by approximately $22M by 2016. NRG Yield expects to close the transaction by June 30, 2015. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approvals by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and notice of the acquisition to the California Public Utilities Commission. With this acquisition, NRG Yield now owns nearly 600 megawatts of solar generation. NRG Yield is supported by its parent, NRG Energy (NRG), which owns and operates approximately 1.2 gigawatts of solar generation, thus implying a combined solar portfolio of 1.8 gigawatts.
