OneWeb announced it has raised $500M in funding from a number of companies, including Airbus (EADSY), Bharti, EchoStar's (SATS) Hughes, Intelsat (I), Qualcomm (QCOM), Coca-Cola (KO), Totalplay, and Virgin Group. OneWeb is engaged in developing satellite technologies to "beam" broadband internet to rural and underdeveloped locations, as well as to ships, planes, trains, and oil platforms. Bharti chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal will be joining Airbus Group CEO Tom Enders as well as Virgin's Richard Branson and Qualcomm's Paul Jacobs on the OneWeb board of directors. OneWeb also reiterated its June 15 announcement of its joint venture with Airbus to design and manufacture 900 microsatellites. "We are committed to giving our full industrial and space expertise to this mission," remarked Airbus' Tom Enders. "Intelsat has the world’s largest fleet of Ku Band geostationary satellites and our interoperability will enable pole-to-pole and urban canyon coverage with new services," said Intelsat. Note that both Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) are working on similar projects to facilitate global internet access. Reference Link

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.

17:21 EDTQCOMSemiconductor Manufacturing, Qualcomm form joint venture to focus on 14nm tech
Earlier on Tuesday, Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMI), Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm Global Trading -- an affiliate of Qualcomm (QCOM) -- announced the formation of SMIC Advanced Technology Research & Development, an equity joint venture company. The joint venture company will focus on R&D towards next generation CMOS logic technology and an advanced integrated circuit development R&D platform. SMIC Advanced Technology R&D will be majority owned by SMIC, while Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm will be minority shareholders. "By enabling fabless semiconductor companies to join the development process as shareholders, the product development cycle can be shortened and the advanced process node tape out time can be accelerated," said the statement. In the first phase, the joint venture will develop 14 nanometer CMOS technology for mass production, which will be based on imec's expertise. The project will be done at SMIC's production line. SMIC will have the rights to license the required intellectual property rights on the mass production technologies of advanced nodes developed by the joint venture company.
