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

06:01 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $143 from $116 at UBS
UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson raised his price target for Netflix (NFLX) shares to $143 after increasing his longer term revenue assumptions. The streaming service closed yesterday down $1.31 to $124.05. Mitchelson upped his 2020-2026 revenue estimates to reflect his belief that Netflix will successfully monetize its streaming platform beyond just monthly subscription fees, such as bundling and promoting third party services. He has increased confidence in the company's U.S. growth outlook after T-Mobile (TMUS) just launched a promotion for its wireless service that included one free year of Netflix. As competition among broadband providers intensifies, Netflix's inexpensive monthly streaming service could become one of the standard promotional tools, Mitchelson tells investors in a research note. The analyst's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. Mitchelson keeps a Buy rating on Netflix.

11:34 EDTVZ, TSprint rises on plans to abandon two-year contracts
Sprint shares are higher this morning after the company's chief executive officer said that the carrier plans to move away from two-year contracts. WHAT'S NEW: In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said that the company will stop offering two-year contracts by the end of 2015 in favor of a "smartphone lease" model. Sprint began offering a lease option last year, The Journal noted, and Claure said the carrier is planning to move entirely to that model by the end of the year. As part of its shift, Sprint yesterday unveiled iPhone Forever, a new leasing plan that starts at $22 per month for an iPhone. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a similar move earlier this month, Sprint rival Verizon (VZ) said it would drop phone subsidies and two-year contracts for new customers. T-Mobile (TMUS), another market rival, abandoned contracts over two years ago, leaving AT&T (T) as the only major U.S. carrier still offering to subsidize new smartphone purchases. Separately, Softbank (SFTBF), Sprint's primary stakeholder, disclosed last week that it increased its holdings in the company to approximately 80%, though the company said it does not plan for its stake in the carrier to exceed 85%. Meanwhile, a study released Tuesday by RootMetrics, an independent company that evaluates wireless networks, shows that Sprint is improving its network, having solidified third place nationally in overall performance, surpassing T-Mobile for the second consecutive six-month stretch. PRICE ACTION: Sprint is up 7c, or 1.52%, to $4.67 in morning trading.

06:17 EDTTAT&T aided NSA in web surveillance, NYT reports
The National Security Agency's, or NSA, ability to spy on great amounts of internet traffic has relied on a decades-long partnership with AT&T, the New York Times reports, citing newly disclosed NSA documents. The company's cooperation with the NSA has involved a broad range of activities from 2003-2013, including giving the NSA access to billions of emails and providing technical assistance in carrying out a secret court order permitting the wiretapping of all web communications at the UN headquarters, the report says. AT&T installed surveillance equipment in "at least" 17 of its U.S. internet hubs, the report says. Reference Link
