09:46 EDTTGTCriteo rises after said to add Alibaba, Target as customers
Shares of digital marketing solutions provider Criteo (CRTO) are rising in early trading after research firm Pacific Crest raised its price target on the stock. The firm also notes that it appears Criteo has recently added Alibaba (BABA) and Target (TGT) as customers. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors this morning, Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson said that the firm's checks indicate that Criteo now has cookies on 49% of the top 100 retail and travel websites in the U.S. Wilson noted that Google (GOOG) has 76% of the top 100, but suggested also that its heavy overlap with Criteo reinforces the view that the two companies' cookies serve different purposes. Wilson said Target was a notable Criteo win in the U.S. during Q2, while also saying the firm discovered that some Alibaba sites outside of China now have a Criteo cookie for the first time. Wilson raised his 2016 estimates for Criteo citing the continued strong checks and increased the firm's price target on the stock to $65 from $55. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Criteo grained $2.30, or 4.8%, to $49.97.

09:53 EDTMMacy's retreats after Deutsche cuts to sell, says real estate sale unlikely
The shares of Macy's (M) are falling in early trading after research firm Deutsche Bank downgraded the stock to Sell from Buy, saying that the retailer is facing numerous challenges. WHAT'S NEW: Macy's same-store sales are likely to remain "anemic," partly due to tourism headwinds and increased competition from its own vendors, Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Meanwhile, the company's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization is likely to remain "flattish," partly because of higher shipping and healthcare costs and lower leverage on its sales, the analyst stated. Given all of these challenges, Macy's profit growth will probably not exceed high single digit percentage levels over the next couple of years, while its share repurchases will probably be reduced, Trussell said. Although Macy's could drive significant value by monetizing its real estate portfolio, it's unlikely to do so, according to Trussell. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On June 2, Reuters reported that Macy's would listen to a request by hedge funds who were asking the company to consider options for its real estate holdings. However, the company was worried that selling real estate and then leasing it back would saddle it with significant leasing costs, the news service noted. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Macy's fell 2.1% to $68.38.

08:25 EDTDISNetflix 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.
