16:09 EDTADSKAutodesk sees shift to new subscription types, says refining plans
"We continue to see customers adopt our new model subscription offerings... For the past two years we've been preparing for this transition and we're now ready to accelerate the process... As a reminder, Autodesk is undergoing a business model transition in which the company will discontinue selling new perpetual licenses in favor of subscriptions and flexible license arrangements. During the transition, billings, revenue, gross margin, operating margin, EPS, deferred revenue, and cash flow from operations will be impacted as more revenue is recognized ratably rather than up front and as new offerings bring a wider variety of price points... Looking at 2H, we are maintaining our billings and subscriptions outlook but we're now expecting a greater portion of our sales to shift from perpetual licenses to new subscription types. Since the revenue from these new subscription types is deferred and recognized ratably we have revised our revenue, operating margin and EPS outlook for the year. Looking beyond this year, we are currently refining our plans around the pace and timeframe for the business model transition," said the company.

12:09 EDTADSKAutodesk technical notes ahead of earnings news
In the context of a longer-term chart, there is a major topping process underway in the shares. For the current earnings report this is an issue as price is very close to the $50 level. A move below $50 on negative news would confirm the long-term topping process was underway. Next support levels to watch as potential downside objectives would be at $47.86, $44.76, and $42.49. If the news is a bullish surprise, the topping process would become less of an issue as long as price reacts up from the $50 area. Next resistance levels of note would be at $51.70, $55.41, and $57.59.

08:53 EDTCBSAfter rough week, Disney shares expected to recover
With fears of cord cutting and declining advertising rates consuming the minds of investors and analysts this week, Disney (DIS) shares have dropped 7% over the past five trading days. Stepping out of the growing pack of bearish analysts is FBR Capital's Barton Crockett. ROUGH WEEK: On Tuesday, Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker downgraded her rating on Disney (DIS), CBS (CBS), 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to Market Perform from Outperform. None of the large media companies reported that their revenue from cable stations or broadcast networks increased in the most recent quarter, Ryvicker told investors. TV distributors have more favorable characteristics than the media companies, she argued. Then on Thursday, Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger downgraded Disney (DIS), along with Time Warner (TWX), to Market Perform from Outperform. The move by viewers away from ad-supported platforms to non-ad-supported services like Netflix (NFLX) will bring a "prolonged structural decline" to the U.S. television industry, Juenger contended. PATH TO RECOVERY: Sentiment is driving Disney and the media stocks lower, FBR Capital's Barton Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note titled "Performance Is the Best Defense: How Disney, Near Term, Can Separate from Peers." Cord cutting and advertising fears are taking down the valuation multiples in the media sector, but consensus earnings estimates are little changed, the analyst writes. Cord cutting is the term used to describe the dropping of cable or satellite TV in favor of an online streaming service. Crockett sees a number of "performance positives near term" that can help shares of Disney recover. The owner of ESPN can separate itself from peers with solid second half of 2015 advertising trends when football returns, he believes. Disney can also benefit from the retail push for Star Wars movie merchandise, starting with a midnight door-buster national product launch on September 4, the analyst writes. PETER OUT: Crockett expects cord-cutting fears to "peter out." Cable bundles broadband with TV, and most households have a sports fan, he points out. While Netflix takes audiences from non-sports content, sports will save the bundle subscription model that benefits Disney's ESPN unit, Crockett thinks. He has an Outperform rating on Disney with a $124 price target. The stock closed yesterday down $6.44, or 6%, to $100.01. Over the past three months, Disney is down over 9%.
