Stocks ended the week higher after comments from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen reassured investors of the central bank's strategy, with the Dow and S&P 500 climbing back within 1% of their all-time highs. MACRO NEWS: In testimony before a Congressional panel, newly appointed Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said she expected "a great deal of continuity" in the central bank's policies as she begins her tenure.

08:25 EDTCBS, CMCSANetflix 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.
