06:55 EDTTWC, NFLX, VZ, CVC, T, CMCSANetflix CEO says ISPs shouldn't be allowed to charge service providers
The U.S. needs a stronger form of net neutrality than the rule previously created by the FCC and recently overturned by a federal court, Netflix (NFLX) CEO Reed Hastings wrote in a blog. Specifically, Internet Service Providers should be prevented not just from interfering with Internet traffic, but from charging any fees to service providers and intermediaries, Hastings contended. Unless Netflix agrees to pay fees to some ISPs, its service on those ISPs is "constrained," subjecting consumers to high buffering rates, long wait times and poor video quality, Hastings stated. If large ISPs are not prevented from levying such fees, they could increase their fees further, driving up costs, the CEO warned. In the near-term, however, Netflix will pay the fees, Hastings stated. Major ISPs include Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Cablevision (CVC), Verizon (VZ), and AT&T (T). Reference Link

07:30 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $800 from $610 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein raised his 12-18 month price target for shares of Netflix to $800 from $610. The streaming service closed yesterday up $3.30 to $663.20. The new target reflects the company's plans to enter Japan, Cuba, Spain, Italy and Portugal, all in 2015, the analyst tells investors this morning in a research note. Helfstein's revised model assumes global subscribers of 239M in 2020, equaling 32% penetration of broadband homes, which the analyst says is consistent with Netflix's 2015 rates in older markets. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the stock.

In a memo to staff members, Huffington commented that "After all my meetings and conversations with and the Verizon leadership, I am convinced that we will have both the editorial independence and the additional resources that will allow HuffPost to lead the global media platform shift to mobile and video."
