14:43 EDTLNVGYAnalyst sees Himax facing headwinds, risks in near-term
The shares of Himax Technologies (HIMX) are falling sharply after research firm Northland Securities warned that the company's March revenues could come in at the lower end of its guidance. Himax develops semiconductors used in thin film transistor-liquid crystal displays and displays using other technologies. WHAT'S NEW: The Chinese sales of smartphones made by a number of Himax's customers, including Samsung, Lenovo (LNVGY), and ZTE, have been weak, Northland analyst Tom Sepenzis wrote in a note to investors today. Additionally, Samsung's new smartphones will probably ship with OLED displays, rather than TFT displays, the analyst stated. These developments create risks for Himax in the March-June time period, according to Sepenzis. Meanwhile, January and February data reported by a number of Taiwanese vendors, including HTC and Taiwan Semiconductor (TSM), do not bode well for Himax, as their sales were down 26.5% in February versus January. Additionally, Sepenzis is now more pessimistic on the near-term outlook for sales of augmented reality headsets, leading him to believe that Himax's revenue from these products will be lower than he previously estimated in the near-term. The analyst kept a $110 price target and Outperform rating on the shares, as he remains upbeat on the company's longer term outlook. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Himax dropped 51c, or 6.5% to $7.47.

10:44 EDTAAPLNetflix retreats after cut to sell on competition, cost concerns
The shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after research firm Evercore ISI downgraded the stock to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to increase its investments and the return from those investments is uncertain, the firm contends. WHAT'S NEW: In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors, Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. The analyst noted that Apple (AAPL) recently obtained a three month exclusive deal to stream content form Time Warner's (TWX) HBO Now, while Yahoo (YHOO), Amazon (AMZN), and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWSA) are all reportedly interested in obtaining streaming rights to "Seinfeld." Netflix's international expansion will not be sufficient to offset the increased competition, especially because foreign viewers are likely to watch less TV and be less interested in paying for TV content, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Netflix will face more competition from other Internet TV services overseas than in the U.S., according to Sena, who cut his 2015 consolidated operating income estimate for the company by 26% to $381M from $517M previously. In addition to cutting his rating, Sena lowered his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix sank $16, or 3.7%, to $422.
