06:41 EDTFOX, CMCSA, CBS, DIS, NLSNNielsen's new rating system could have problems, Re/code says
Nielsen plans to enable U.S. broadcasters to measure their audiences on all devices starting this fall, but the plan faces a number of obstacles, Re/code reported yesterday.

06:22 EDTDISDisney downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger downgraded Disney (DIS) to Market Perform saying the U.S. television industry is entering a period of "prolonged structural decline." With viewers moving away from ad-supported platforms to non-ad-supported, media companies with the least exposure to U.S. advertising represent the most favorable investments, Juenger tells investors in a 48-page research note on the Media sector. He cut his price target for Disney shares to $114 from $125. The analyst also downgraded shares of Time Warner (TWX) to Market Perform. Shares of Disney closed yesterday down 45c to $106.49. Wells Fargo on Tuesday also downgraded the stock to Market Perform.

06:12 EDTNLSNStarbucks K-cup momentum is accelerating, says UBS
UBS analyst Keith Siegner says Starbucks (SBUX) is seeing accelerating momentum in the single-serve cup category. The company's K-cup sales increased 36% year-over-year for the four-week period ended August 8, according to Nielsen (NLSN), Siegner tells investors in a research note. Starbucks' K-cup promotion levels ticked up sequentially, but remain well below levels from earlier in the year, the analyst points out. The company's K-Cup portfolio continues to gain share despite increasing price pressure and new market entrants like Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) and McDonald's (MCD), Siegner writes. He keeps a Buy rating on Starbucks with a $63 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 9c to $57.83. Shares of Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) are down 62% year-to-date in part due to the company's slowing sales in the single-serve cup category.

Downside potential would be to the $92 to $91 area, if the pattern became active and completed. A sustained move above the pattern top at $109 or higher would void the pattern through time and price.
