10:19 EDTAMZN, GOOG, FB, TWTRAnalysts upbeat on upcoming Twitter quarterly report
Two research firms were optimistic about the outlook for Twitter's (TWTR) fourth quarter results and 2014 performance in separate notes to investors earlier today. However, both firms also made cautious statements about the social media company. WHAT'S NEW: Twitter's fourth quarter results could exceed analysts' consensus by a small amount, although it is difficult to gauge the company's fundamentals, RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney wrote. Twitter's momentum can continue, and the company can become one of the leading websites, alongside Google (GOOG), Amazon.com (AMZN), and Facebook (FB), Mahaney believes. The company's long-term outlook remains bright, added the analyst, who kept a $60 price target and Outperform rating on the stock. Wedbush analyst Shyam Patil contended that Twitter benefited from strong spending on its platform last quarter and some advertisers are beginning to dedicate a set amount of money to Twitter in their budgets. Twitter's fourth quarter results will be "very strong," and marketers' Twitter budgets could double this year, the analyst wrote. However, the company's fourth quarter results are likely to be in-line with analysts' consensus estimate, and investors should wait for a better entry point before buying the shares, wrote Patil. The analyst increased his price target on the stock to $58 from $37, but kept a Neutral rating on the shares.

10:44 EDTAMZNNetflix 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.
