08:25 EDTNLSNNetflix 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.

06:37 EDTJPMDeutsche downgrades Citi, Goldman after share rallies
Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O'Connor recommends using the strong share performance of both Citi (C) and Goldman Sachs (GS) as on opportunity to take profits. The analyst this morning downgraded shares of both investment banks to Hold from Buy. Citi is up 21% from the lows on January 30 while Goldman is up 30% since July 1, 2014, the analyst points out. On Citi, O'Connor sees less near term upside with fixed income trading entering a seasonally weak period and core cost reductions largely over. On Goldman, the analyst sees a lack of catalysts to drive the stock meaningfully higher in the near term. His top picks among U.S. Banks are Bank of America (BAC), JPMorgan (JPM), M&T Bank (MTB) and SunTrust (STI).
