07:41 EDTHEESH&E Equipment sees FY15 increased expansion in Texas, Louisiana
“We believe healthy growth opportunities will continue into 2015, driven by momentum in the non-residential construction markets and increasing industrial expansion in Louisiana and Texas. While there is concern that reduced oil prices may negatively impact the anticipated expansion in Louisiana and Texas, many projects are expected to continue as a result of low natural gas prices. In addition, oil and gas activities only accounted for approximately 13% of our total revenues in 2014, with the vast majority of our equipment being used in oil production rather than exploration," said the company.

11:47 EDTNFLXAnalysts clash on DreamWorks following Q4 miss
The shares of animated film and television show maker DreamWorks (DWA) are rising, despite the weaker than expected results reported by the company last night. Two analysts offered very different views on the company's outlook following its results. BACKGROUND: DreamWorks last night reported a fourth quarter per share loss of ($3.08), versus analysts' consensus outlook for a ($3.01) per share loss. The company's revenue also came in below expectations. Excluding $210M in pre-tax charges associated with DreamWorks' restructuring plan, its loss was (75c) per share, the company stated. BEARISH TAKE: In a note to investors today, FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett wrote that DreamWorks' results were "ugly," as they included $155M of write-offs on films and TV shows. However, Crockett believes that the crucial factor for the company's outlook is whether it can consistently compete with the entertainment giants, including Disney (DIS), Viacom (VIA), and Time Warner (TWX). Crockett is not convinced that DreamWorks will be able to hold its own, and he believes that its 2015 results could come in below expectations. The analyst warned that the company may have difficulty meeting its 2015 consumer products revenue guidance. DreamWorks expects its consumer products revenue to double this year, but the movie-based toy space is "very competitive" in 2015, as toys based on multiple popular children's films are set to be released, Crockett stated. Moreover, after conducting checks online, Crockett reports that there does not seem to be a great deal of interest in DreamWorks' movie "Home," which is set to be released on March 27. He kept an Underperform rating on the shares and raised his price target on the stock to $14 from $12. BULLISH TAKE: DreamWorks' results were mixed, but the results are not very important, Piper Jaffray analyst James Marsh stated. The company's guidance for its TV and consumer products businesses were solid, the analyst believes. Moreover, the company "took specific and decisive action" to avert a liquidity crunch, Marsh wrote. Specifically, DreamWorks raised $185M of capital by selling its real estate in Glendale, California and then leasing it back, and increased the size of its current credit facility to $450M from $400M, Marsh reported. The moves should "largely" eliminate investors' worries about the company's liquidity position, Marsh stated. He kept a $26 price target and Overweight rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On DreamWorks' earnings conference call last night, the company's CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg stated that it did not obtain more than 10% of its revenue from Netflix (NFLX) last year. However, in an SEC filing earlier this morning, DreamWorks clarified that it had obtained 14.9% of its revenue from Netflix last year. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, DreamWorks rose 5.6% to $22.31.
