16:54 EDTNFLX, ALGN, UTX, BIG, IBM, AAPL, AFFY, MMM, TOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, with AT&T (T) supporting the Dow and Apple (AAPL) dragging on the Nasdaq. Stock futures were higher in pre-market trading but the Nasdaq futures moved lower as shares of Apple turned down. The futures action led to a mixed open for the broader market, which is the way it remained for most of the session. Early in the day the new home sales report showed that home sales declined but an upward revision to previous months' figures pushed the annual sales rate above expectations. All three major indices moved higher briefly after that report, but they soon turned mixed again, where they would drift for the rest of the day... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., new single-family home sales dropped in March but the sales rate beat analysts' expectations as the government upwardly revised its sales figures for prior months, resulting in a seasonally adjusted 328,000-unit annual sales rate. The S&P/Case Shiller 20-city composite home price index fell to its lowest level since the housing market downturn began, but on a seasonally adjusted basis the index gained 0.2% in February. U.S. consumer confidence slipped a bit in April to 69.2, versus expectations of a 69.6 reading. The Richmond Fed manufacturing index rose to 14 from 7 a month ago... COMPANY NEWS: AT&T, United Technologies (UTX) and 3M (MMM) all rose after reporting earnings that beat consensus. Also powering the Dow higher were shares of IBM (IBM), rising 0.69% after the company increased its dividend and share repurchase authorization... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Align Technology (ALGN), up $4.32, or 15.74%, to $31.76, after its earnings and guidance beat the Street's view, and Affymax (AFFY), up $1.36, or 11.73%, to $12.95, after announcing that its OMONTYS Injection is now available only for use in treating anemia due to chronic kidney disease in adult patients on dialysis. Noteworthy losers included Big Lots (BIG), down $11.00, or 24.06%, to $34.71, after the company lowered its same store sales view, and Netflix (NFLX), down $14.16, or 13.90%, to $87.68, following its earnings report... INDICES: The Dow rose 74.39, or 0.58%, to 13,001.56; the Nasdaq dropped 8.85, or 0.30%, to 2,961.60; and the S&P 500 added 5.03, or 0.37%, to 1,371.97.

10:57 EDTNFLXT-Mobile promotion gives Netflix analyst greater confidence
UBS raised its price target on Netflix (NFLX) to $143 from $116, saying that its confidence in the company's outlook has improved following a promotion undertaken by T-Mobile (TMUS). WHAT'S NEW: T-Mobile recently began offering one free year of Netflix to consumers who switch to its wireless service, UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson wrote in a note to investors today. Mitchelson said that the promotion increases his confidence in the outlook for Netflix's U.S. business. Moreover, he believes that Netflix could "become a standard promotional tool" for wired and wireless broadband providers going forward. Although Netflix's stock "looks very expensive" in the near-term, the company's long-term opportunity is "extraordinary," given the potential size of the global streaming market, the analyst stated. Mitchelson's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. He raised his price target on the name to $143 from $116 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On August 10, research firm Stifel raised its price target on Netflix to $143 from $128, saying that the company's U.S. subscriber base can reach 80M by 2024, above the midpoint of its guidance. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Netflix fell 1% to $122.

06:01 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $143 from $116 at UBS
UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson raised his price target for Netflix (NFLX) shares to $143 after increasing his longer term revenue assumptions. The streaming service closed yesterday down $1.31 to $124.05. Mitchelson upped his 2020-2026 revenue estimates to reflect his belief that Netflix will successfully monetize its streaming platform beyond just monthly subscription fees, such as bundling and promoting third party services. He has increased confidence in the company's U.S. growth outlook after T-Mobile (TMUS) just launched a promotion for its wireless service that included one free year of Netflix. As competition among broadband providers intensifies, Netflix's inexpensive monthly streaming service could become one of the standard promotional tools, Mitchelson tells investors in a research note. The analyst's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. Mitchelson keeps a Buy rating on Netflix.

11:34 EDTTSprint rises on plans to abandon two-year contracts
Sprint shares are higher this morning after the company's chief executive officer said that the carrier plans to move away from two-year contracts. WHAT'S NEW: In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said that the company will stop offering two-year contracts by the end of 2015 in favor of a "smartphone lease" model. Sprint began offering a lease option last year, The Journal noted, and Claure said the carrier is planning to move entirely to that model by the end of the year. As part of its shift, Sprint yesterday unveiled iPhone Forever, a new leasing plan that starts at $22 per month for an iPhone. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a similar move earlier this month, Sprint rival Verizon (VZ) said it would drop phone subsidies and two-year contracts for new customers. T-Mobile (TMUS), another market rival, abandoned contracts over two years ago, leaving AT&T (T) as the only major U.S. carrier still offering to subsidize new smartphone purchases. Separately, Softbank (SFTBF), Sprint's primary stakeholder, disclosed last week that it increased its holdings in the company to approximately 80%, though the company said it does not plan for its stake in the carrier to exceed 85%. Meanwhile, a study released Tuesday by RootMetrics, an independent company that evaluates wireless networks, shows that Sprint is improving its network, having solidified third place nationally in overall performance, surpassing T-Mobile for the second consecutive six-month stretch. PRICE ACTION: Sprint is up 7c, or 1.52%, to $4.67 in morning trading.
