11:58 EDTTSNPoultry leaders Tyson, Cal-Maine diverge after quarterly reports
Shares of two leaders in the poultry industry, Tyson Foods (TSN) and Cal-Maine Foods (CALM), are moving in opposite directions following their respective quarterly reports. Tyson, a food production company specializing in chicken and other proteins, were up after the company reported better than expected third quarter revenues, while shares of egg provider Cal-Maine are cracking after the company said it was "cautiously optimistic" about having a good start to full-year 2015. TYSON: Tyson Foods' adjusted Q3 earnings per share was 75c, which fell below analysts' consensus of 78c. The food provider's Q3 revenue was $9.68B, which exceeded analysts' consensus of 9.47B. In terms of guidance, Tyson guided fiscal year 2014 revenue to grow to $38B, compared to analysts' estimates of $36.85B. Tyson expects FY15 EPS growth of at least 10%. Analysts are expecting the company's FY15 EPS to be $3.16. The company sees FY15 revenue of $42B, above the analysts' consensus of $38.75B. Tyson Foods said that it expects fiscal year 2015 domestic protein production to increase 1% and also expects grain supplies to increase during the fiscal year, which should result in lower input costs as well as decreased costs for cattle and hog producers. U.S. chicken production is expected to increase around 2% in FY15 compared to FY14. The company expects lower feed costs for chicken in FY15 and said the Chicken segment's operating margin should be at or above 10% in FY15. Tyson also announced that has reached a definitive agreement with to sell its poultry businesses in Mexico and Brazil to Pilgrim's Pride (PPC), whose majority owner is a wholly owned subsidiary of JBS SA (JBSAY). On its earnings conference call, Tyson backed its FY14 EPS view of "at least" $2.78, versus analysts' estimates of $2.91, and called 2015 earnings guidance "conservative." The company said the Hillshire Brands (HSH) acquisition is on-track to close in Q4 and sees synergies reaching $225M in 2015. CAL-MAINE: Meanwhile, Cal-Maine reported fourth quarter EPS of $1.30, which surpassed the consensus forecast of $1.15 from the two analysts covering the stock, according to First Call. The company's Q4 revenue was $371.6M, which was over $46M higher than the revenue it reported a year ago in the same period. Cal-Maine reported that it produced 195.63M total dozen eggs in Q4 and sold 249.44M total dozen eggs in the quarter. The company said its results reflect strong demand for shell eggs throughout the year from all the major market segments including retail, egg product and exports. Looking ahead to its FY15, Cal-Maine said that it is "cautiously optimistic" about a good start to the upcoming year. The company said current USDA projections for harvested acres and yields for both crops should be favorable for end users and help reduce feed costs in FY15. ANALYST REACTION: Sidoti downgraded Cal-Maine to Neutral from Buy due to valuation. The firm maintained its price target of $87 on the shares. PRICE ACTION: Near midday, shares of Tyson Foods rose $1.70, or 4.3%, to $41.24 and CalMaine foods fell $4.70. or 6%, to $74.59.

10:50 EDTNFLXNetflix retreats, analysts remain cautious as earnings miss estimate
Shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after several research firms reiterated their negative outlook on the stock following the company's second quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Netflix reported Q2 earnings per share of $1.15, missing the consensus forecast of analysts by 1c, on revenue of $1.15B, which fell short of $1.33B consensus forecast. The company reported Q2 total streaming net additions of 1.69M, growing its total streaming members to just over 50M. The company guided to Q3 EPS of 89c and revenue of $1.22B, missing the consensus forecasts of $1.06 and $1.38B, respectively. The company said it expects Q3 net additions of 3.69M, to grow its membership to 53.74M. ANALYST OPINION: After Netflix reported slightly weaker than expected Q2 results and its Q3 guidance came in slightly below expectations, Jefferies analyst Brian Fitzgerald noted that the company indicated that it could lower its 2015 profit margin guidance. Netflix said its margin outlook will depend on the amount it spends on content, Fitzgerald added. The analyst believes that rising content costs pose a risk to the stock. He increased his price target on the shares to $350 from $300 but kept an Underperform rating on the stock. Also staying cautious on Netflix was research firm Bernstein. After Netflix suggested that its domestic margins may not rise as much as previously thought, the firm thinks the statement implies that either the company's subscriber growth could drop significantly or it may need to invest more in content. Additionally, Bernstein believes that the company's strong international guidance was based on the launch of new markets whose early results are difficult to predict. The outlook for the company's domestic subscription growth is still uncertain, but should become clearer in Q4 or the first quarter of 2015, added Bernstein, which kept a $260 price target and Underperform rating on the stock. Meanwhile, Citigroup continued to have an upbeat outlook on the company's fundamentals and its growth outlook, but kept a Neutral rating on the shares due to the stock's valuation. WHAT'S NOTABLE: A number of firms remained upbeat on Netflix, as Cantor said that the company has several positive catalysts, while JPMorgan called its results solid. Cantor kept a Buy rating on the stock, while JPMorgan reiterated its Overweight rating. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix fell $19.78, or 4.3% to $432.17.

NEWS: Netflix raised its membership rate in early May by $1.00 to $8.99 for new subscribers while existing subscriber rates will be frozen for two years. A couple of weeks into the rate increase, Netflix said that it has seen "small customer reaction." Netflix said that it would significant expand internationally and specifically in Europe for 2H14. It plans to expand its content breath in upcoming quarters with "meaningful" originals in each market that could compete with "the top end of cable." Speaking on CNBC, CEO Reed Hastings added that he does not expect Netflix to introduce advertising now or in the near future.

07:21 EDTMRKGilead could be hurt by new HCV drugs, says Wells Fargo
Noting that data on a new Merck (MRK) HCV treatment is expected in November, Wells Fargo thinks Merck's HCV drug could be combined with Gilead's (GILD) Sovaldi to shorten the duration of treatment to four weeks. Other companies could take similar actions, and Gilead's per patient revenues would be significantly reduced if this occurs, the firm warned. However, it continues to have an upbeat outlook on Gilead heading into what it sees as a strong quarter and is still upbeat on the company's long-term HCV opportunity. It keeps an Outperform rating on Gilead.
