09:59 EDTCMCSA, TWCCharter may have interest in Cablevision 'at some point,' says Detwiler
Detwiler Fenton believes there is truth to last week's reports of Charter (CHTR) being in talks to acquire Bright House Networks. In addition, the firm says its checks indicate Charter may have interest in buying Suddenlink Communications and Cablevision (CVC) "at some point" as a part of a lager acquisition strategy. Detwiler adds Charter's potential deal strategy assumes Comcast's (CMCSA) bid for Time Warner (TWC) wins regulatory approval. Should the deal not get approved, Detwiler believes Charter will turn its attention back to Time Warner.

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.
07:37 EDTVODVodafone outlook still positive, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan says that euro weakness and uncertainties relating to the Indian spectrum auction have caused Vodafone's stock to underperform. But the firm believes that, in April, attention should shift to Vodafone's full-year results and its improving outlook in Europe while the company should resume growing in 2H15. The firm keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.
