06:55 EDTT, CMCSA, TWC, NFLX, VZ, CVCNetflix 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

10:44 EDTNFLX, CMCSANetflix 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.

07:52 EDTNFLXNetflix downgraded at Evercore ISI
As previously reported, Evercore ISI downgraded Netflix to Sell from Hold. The firm downgraded shares and reduced its price target to $380 from $450 due to increasing competition among existing and emerging distributors combined with content providers who are becoming increasingly leveraged to new channels through OTT offerings of their own. Evercore ISI believes intensifying competition will necessitate increased investment with uncertain returns and lowered estimates.
