10:44 EDTAAPLNetflix 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.

07:33 EDTBONEBacterin announces contract extension with Novation
Bacterin International Holdings announced that it has extended its contract with Novation for an additional year. The extension will allow Bacterin to continue to supply Novation members with OsteoSponge, OsteoSelect DBM Putty, and other proprietary Bacterin allografts. Novation develops and manages competitive contracts with more than 700 suppliers. As a biologic supplier, Bacterin is one of only three companies with a contract for demineralized bone matrix technologies and one of four allograft suppliers. This gives Bacterin a competitive advantage in comparison to many biologic providers that do not have an agreement with Novation. Since entering into a contract in 2012, Bacterin has worked closely with Novation in several areas including helping to drive contract utilization with its members, adding value for the facility and their patients, and helping its members recognize savings without compromising safety or quality. In 2014, approximately 25% of Bacterin's revenues were generated by Novation members.
