The letter to Costolo is dated April 13, and was followed by a response from the company saying that it included two metrics -- changes in ad engagements and changes in cost per ad engagement -- on its quarterly report for the period ended March 31. "These metrics are intended to serve as a measure of user engagement and demand, respectively," explained Twitter in its May 11 response letter. Reference Link

06:36 EDTNLSNBernstein cuts Disney, Time Warner with TV entering 'structural decline'
Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger downgraded his rating on both Disney (DIS) and Time Warner (TWX) 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. The analyst moved both companies to a Market Perform rating from Outperform, and lowered his price target for Disney to $114 from $125 and for Time Warner to $90 from $101. He called the downgrade of Time Warner a "very close call" as his new price target still represents 15% upside from current levels. Share performance in the entire Media sector will be challenged until the content owners take steps to "reclaim on-demand viewing" from streaming services like Netflix (NFLX) and use it to protect affiliate fees, Juenger argues. His Outperform-rated names are Nielsen (NLSN) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA). Along with Time Warner and Disney, the analyst has Market Perform ratings on AMC Networks (AMCX), CBS (CBS), Scripps Networks (SNI) and Discovery (DISCA). Juenger has an Underperform rating on Viacom (VIAB). Wells Fargo on Tuesday also downgraded Disney to Market Perform. Piper Jaffray this morning told investors that the recent pullback in shares of AMC Networks brings a "great" entry point into the name.

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.
