Piper Jaffray notes that Rovi's (ROVI) service provider deals with DISH (DISH) and Comcast (CMCSA) expire in 2016. Piper expects Rovi will start receiving recurring per subscriber interactive program guide royalty payments from both companies in 2016, which it estimates has the potential to increase Rovi's annual revenue by greater than $100M. The firm thinks the 2016 contract renewals will begin to be reflected in Rovi shares over the next 12 months and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock with a $24 price target.

08:25 EDTCMCSANetflix 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.
