05:48 EDTTV, NLSNNielsen fights over ratings in Mexico with Televisa, Azteca, WSJ reports
Nielsen Co.'s (NLSN) expansion in Mexico two years ago ha been nothing but trouble, reports the Wall Street Journal. From the start, Nielsen found out the names, addresses and telephone numbers of hundreds of families that contributed to Ibope's ratings there were stolen by an anonymous hacker and widely leaked. Mexico's TV broadcasters, Grupo Televisa (TV) and Azteca, turned the leak into an attack on the combined Nielsen Ibope. Both filed criminal and civil charges against the entity, claiming fraud among other allegations. These troubles complicates what authorities hoped would be a revolution in the Mexican TV business.Reference Link

08:25 EDTNLSNNetflix on pace to have larger audience than all networks, FBR says
FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett says that while Netflix (NFLX) is not rated by Nielsen (NLSN), the 10B hours streamed in Q1 reported by the company are equivalent to having a 24-hour rating of 2.6, on par with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. And while ratings at broadcasters are falling on average, Netflix is growing its ratings at a 40%-plus compound annual rate, Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note. At this pace, Netflix in a year will have a larger 24-hour audience than all broadcast networks, he contends. Regarding last night's 7-for-1 stock split announcement, Crockett says the move reflects management's confidence in the "durability of the recent stock surge." For perspective, three years ago Netflix shares were around $60. This morning they are trading up $18.69 to $699.88 in the pre-market. Crockett has an Outperform rating on the streaming service with a $900 price target.
