11:37 EDTT, VZ, TWC, GOOG, CMCSA, NFLXFCC Chairman to propose new 'Net Neutrality' rules
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced he intends to ask his fellow commissioners to enact new open Internet rules that enforce and enhance the transparency rule, fulfill the “no blocking” goal and fulfill the goals of the non-discrimination rule. Wheeler also said the Commission will not initiate any further judicial action in connection with the Verizon (VZ) decision. Wheeler stated: "In its Verizon v. FCC decision, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit invited the Commission to act to preserve a free and open Internet. I intend to accept that invitation by proposing rules that will meet the court’s test for preventing improper blocking of and discrimination among Internet traffic, ensuring genuine transparency in how Internet Service Providers manage traffic, and enhancing competition. Preserving the Internet as an open platform for innovation and expression while providing certainty and predictability in the marketplace is an important responsibility of this agency." Supporters of the "net neutrality" rules, as they have been called, include Google (GOOG) and Netflix (NFLX). In addition to Verizon, other broadband operators include AT&T (T), Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC). Reference Link

06:45 EDTGOOGGoogle upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon upgraded Google (GOOGL, GOOG) to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target for the stock to $670 from $570. The search giant's Class A shares closed yesterday down 22c to $583.96. The upgrade is not a call on tonight's quarterly results, but reflects a belief that second half of 2015 and 2016 estimates will move higher on margin stabilization, Salmon tells investors in a research note. A focus on investing in key growth areas coupled with a steady revenue outlook should drive Google shares higher, the analyst writes.

05:52 EDTNFLX, TWC, CMCSARuling in Netflix case a negative for Rovi, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty says court filings released after yesterday's market close indicate Netflix (NFLX) was granted a motion of summary invalidating all five of the remaining Rovi (ROVI) patents that were being contested. Auty expects Rovi to sell off on the news as investors consider what the ruling may do to the company's upcoming contract renewals with Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), DirecTV (DTV) and DISH (DISH). The "big 4" choosing to litigate against Rovi is "certainly a possibility," but the companies have bigger patent infringement exposures than an over-the-top vendor like Netflix, Auty writes in a research note. He keeps a Neutral rating on Rovi.

05:16 EDTNFLXRovi provides update on litigation against Netflix
Rovi (ROVI) provided an update on ongoing litigation against Netflix (NFLX). Rovi has been engaged in litigation against Netflix with respect to five patents related to various features and functionality provided by the over-the-top, or OTT, video service. On July 15, Judge Phyllis Hamilton issued a ruling granting Netflix’s motion for summary judgment on the five patents at issue in the current litigation, finding the patents invalid on the grounds that they are not directed to patentable subject matter based upon the Supreme Court’s 2014 ruling in Alice Corp. Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank International. As a result, the Court has entered judgment in favor of Netflix in the case. As part of the decision, Judge Hamilton also issued a claim construction ruling in the case in which the Court construed the nine disputed claim terms in the case. The Court ruled in Rovi’s favor on nearly all of the disputed claim terms, only adopting Netflix’s proposed construction of a single term. Importantly, the Court rejected attempts by Netflix to limit the scope of the patents to the area of “broadcast television,” noting that the claims contain no such limitations and the patents refer to other types of media. Furthermore, the Court rejected attempts by Netflix to limit the scope of the patents to set-top box implementations.
