13:22 EDTTWXOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Friday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed following the short Black Friday session. In addition to periodic checks on traffic at malls and big box retailers, the day's media coverage was dominated by discussion of Disney's disclosure that subscribers for ESPN have dropped about 3% from last year's levels. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major data was released, as several reports that usually come out on Thursdays or Fridays were accelerated into Wednesday due to the holiday. In China, shares of brokerages sold off sharply, with Citic Securities, Founder Securities and China Merchants all falling about 10% on news that the China Securities Regulatory Commission had launched investigations into the firms in an effort to limit short selling and speculation. Amid the rout in the brokerages, the Shanghai Composite index tumbled 5.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Disney (DIS) fell $3.56, or 3.0%, to $115.11 after the media giant disclosed in a regulatory filing late Wednesday that domestic subscribers for ESPN were estimated to have declined by 3M. As of October 3, ESPN had 92M subscribers in the U.S., as estimated by Nielsen Media Research. In the company's 10-K filing last year, Disney stated that Nielsen estimated that ESPN had 95M subscribers as of September 27, 2014. Disney's weakness weighed on its big media peers as well, with Twenty-First Century Fox (FOX, FOXA) falling 1.2%, Time Warner (TWX) dropping 0.74% and Viacom (VIA, VIAB) sliding 1.8%... Amazon (AMZN) shares were flattish, falling 0.3% despite Adobe Systems estimating that online shoppers in the U.S. would spend $1.7B in online shopping by the end of the day on Thanksgiving, a 22% jump from last year. Additionally, ChannelAdvisor estimated that Amazon had a "strong showing" on Thanksgiving day, calculating that its same-store sales grew 28.9% compared to last year. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exact Sciences (EXAS), which rose 3.8% to $9.23 after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, posted the 2016 Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory Fee Schedule. Exact Sciences announced this morning that it has requested that CMS clarify the 2016 reimbursement rate for the company's Cologuard test. Also higher were shares of KaloBios Pharmaceuticals (KBIO), which jumped 30.8% to $34.83 after its new CEO, Martin Shkreli, announced last night via his Twitter account that after speaking with his counsel and advisers that he has decided to stop lending his KaloBios shares out until he "better [understands] the advantages of doing so." Among the noteworthy losers were a number of oil and gas explorers, as Pioneer Energy Services (PES), Stone Energy (SGY) and Southwestern Energy (SWN) fell 8%, 10.2% and 7.2%, respectively, during another down day for oil prices. INDEXES: The Dow fell 14.90, or 0.08%, to 17,798.49, the Nasdaq gained 11.38, or 0.2%, to 5,127.52, and the S&P 500 added 1.24, or 0.06%, to 2,090.11.

16:12 EDTAAPLApple survey sends positive sign on upgrade frequency, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said the firm's survey of 236 U.S. iPhone 6S users showed that that 31% of them expect to upgrade their iPhone every 18 months or sooner and that 18.5% plan to do so every 12 months or sooner. Munster views the data as an early positive sign that U.S. carriers' shift to an installment-based model is allowing users to upgrade more frequently and he foresees the average iPhone upgrade cycle shrinking to 15 months from the 22 month average seen today. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating and $179 price target on Apple shares.

11:45 EDTTWXBox Office Battle: 'Hunger Games' finale expected to top box office
Lions Gate's (LGF) "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2," the final movie based on the dystopian young adult novels, is opening this weekend at 4,175 theaters and is expecting a domestic gross in the range of $120M-$127M. Piper Jaffray analyst James Marsh said in a note to investors on November 18 that he expects the film to open domestically in the $130M range, above where it is tracking, due to limited competition and the addition of IMAX (IMAX) screens. Piper maintained its Overweight rating and $45 price target on Lions Gate shares at that time. "The Hunger Games" main competition is "Spectre" and "The Peanuts Movie," both of which are in their third weekend of release. Sony's (SNE) "Spectre," starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, is expected to earn another $15.2M-$16.8M. Fox's (FOX, FOXA) G-rated family film, starring a 3D-animated Charlie Brown, is predicted to earn an additional $12.5M-$13.2M. In other box office news, the Wall Street Journal reported that Disney's (DIS) "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which hits theaters on December 18, has had record-breaking pre-sales. Fandango said the film has already sold more tickets than any other movie before its release, which is still four weeks away, and IMAX said the movie has "doubled" its prior pre-sales record of about $9M. Other publicly traded companies involved in filmmaking include Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK), Time Warner (TWX), and Viacom (VIA, VIAB).
