12:47 EDTCHTR, CMCSA, CVC, WIN, TWCCable REIT conversions possible but unlikely, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo believes that it may be possible for cable system owners to follow the lead of Windstream (WIN) and pursue an OpCo/REIT structure, which could unlock value, but the firm sees many questions remaining that would need to be answered by cable companies if they pursue such plans. The firm sees such REIT plans as unlikely for cable companies, but thinks the fact that it appears to be legally possible is a positive for the space. Publicly traded cable service providers include Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Cablevision (CVC), and Charter (CHTR).

Cablevision (CVC) and Time Warner's (TWX) Home Box Office announced that they have reached an agreement to offer standalone streaming service HBO NOW to Optimum Online customers via the internet.

Apple (AAPL) and Time Warner announced on March 9 that HBO NOW will premier on Apple devices in April.

10:44 EDTCMCSANetflix retreats after cut to sell on competition, cost concerns
The shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after research firm Evercore ISI downgraded the stock to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to increase its investments and the return from those investments is uncertain, the firm contends. WHAT'S NEW: In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors, Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. The analyst noted that Apple (AAPL) recently obtained a three month exclusive deal to stream content form Time Warner's (TWX) HBO Now, while Yahoo (YHOO), Amazon (AMZN), and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWSA) are all reportedly interested in obtaining streaming rights to "Seinfeld." Netflix's international expansion will not be sufficient to offset the increased competition, especially because foreign viewers are likely to watch less TV and be less interested in paying for TV content, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Netflix will face more competition from other Internet TV services overseas than in the U.S., according to Sena, who cut his 2015 consolidated operating income estimate for the company by 26% to $381M from $517M previously. In addition to cutting his rating, Sena lowered his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix sank $16, or 3.7%, to $422.
