09:59 EDTGOOG, NFLXAnalyst says Netflix would be hurt if court ruling stands
After a federal appeals court yesterday struck down the Federal Communications Commission’s rules on the delivery of Internet content, research firm Wedbush believes that the ruling will hurt Netflix (NFLX). WHAT'S NEW: Yesterday a federal appeals court struck down the FCC's Open Internet Order which had prevented Internet Service Providers from charging Internet content providers fees. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter wrote that, if the ruling stands, Internet Service Providers will force Netflix to pay for unrestricted delivery of its content. As a result, Netflix's costs will likely rise, with the company seeing little or no benefits from its higher expenditures, predicted the analyst. However, Pachter did note that he expects the FCC to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court. He kept a $160 price target and Underperform rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The ruling has mixed implications for Google (GOOG), wrote Wedbush analyst Shyam Patil. Although Google's YouTube will have to pay for network bandwidth that had been free, YouTube might be able to use its funds to create faster, more reliable offerings than those of its competitors, wrote the analyst. Patil has a $980 price target and Neutral rating on Google. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix fell 1% to $335 while Google was flat at $1,150.

Google said on its blog that it is launching the News Lab, "a new effort at Google to empower innovation at the intersection of technology and media. Our mission is to collaborate with journalists and entrepreneurs to help build the future of media. And we’re tackling this in three ways: though ensuring our tools are made available to journalists around the world -- and that newsrooms know how to use them; by getting helpful Google data sets in the hands of journalists everywhere; and through programs designed to build on some of the biggest opportunities that exist in the media industry today. The News Lab is a global effort, with teams in the U.S., U.K., France, and Germany to start -- and we’re also powering the training and research arm of Google’s Digital News Initiative in Europe. Google has created many technologies and platforms that have engaged the media industry. As both the media landscape and technology continue to evolve, we believe we can create a more informed world if technologists and journalists work together -- and we’re excited to be part of the effort."

BTIG raised Buy rated Netflix's price target to $950 from $600 citing business model momentum. The firm's analyst believes Netflix can grow substantially beyond 50M domestic subs.
