Stifel analyst Scott…
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt reiterated a Buy rating and $390 price target on Netflix (NFLX) after Comcast (CMCSA) reported further declines in its residential video subscribers. Devitt said that comparing Netflix to introductory pricing and/or inferior over-the-top products as a justification for worrying about the competitive climate is missing the fact that the cable, telecom, and satellite video industry is shrinking "with no end in sight." The analyst added that any investor who believes that Netflix's peers on TT won't raise prices over time has "likely never paid their own admission to Disneyland." Devitt also said that while he believes the days of 37x and 7x appreciation in Netflix's shares are in the past, he continues to believe that the shares should double over the next four to five years.
Netflix price target raised to $420 from $400 at Guggenheim » 08:5701/2301/23/20
Guggenheim analyst Micahael Morris raised his price target on Netflix shares to $420 from $400 as he reduced his estimated 2020 free cash flow loss to-$2.5B to be in line with management guidance. He noted that the fourth quarter represented the company's best quarter ever for international net adds and that the company said annual viewing per member grew both globally and domestically "consistent with recent quarters," all of which supports his confidence in Netflix's multi-year, global subscriber growth potential. He keeps a Buy rating on Netflix shares.

HIGHER: Akcea Therapeutics (AKCA), up 16% after announcing topline results from the Phase 2 study of AKCEA-APOCIII-LRx in the treatment of patients with hypertriglyceridemia who are at risk for or have established cardiovascular disease. The study met the primary endpoint of significant triglyceride lowering and multiple secondary endpoints with a favorable safety and tolerability profile... Tesla (TSLA), up 4% after Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives said he believes the stock will not disappoint Tesla bulls next week when the company reports earnings and gives guidance, noting that underlying strength in demand in China and Europe look robust based on his analysis. The analyst, who thinks Tesla's delivery guidance is likely to be strong and believes the China opportunity is worth "at least $100 per share," or $300 in a bull case scenario, raised his price target on Tesla shares to $550 from $370 ahead of earnings. Ives, whose new long term bull case scenario on the stock is $900, maintains a Neutral rating on Tesla shares. UP AFTER EARNINGS: Abbott (ABT), up 1%... Ally Financial (ALLY), up 3%... IBM (IBM), up 3%. DOWN AFTER EARNINGS: Baker Hughes (BKR), down 1%... FuelCell (FCEL), down 20%... Zions Bancorp (ZION), down 4%.

In a research note to investors, Olin, who made no change to his Neutral rating, says recent communications between Boeing (BA) and its main global suppliers suggests the OEM is likely to issue conservative 737 production targets for CY20, starting at 21/month followed by a shift to 28/month... Ellington Financial (EFC), down 2% after 4.6M share Spot Secondary priced at $18.29.
Netflix results give 'ammunition' for both bulls and bears, says Rosenblatt » 09:1001/2201/22/20
Netflix reported "mixed" Q4 results last night with strong growth in global subscriber adds and improving free cash flow and margins, offset by "weak" Q1 net add guidance, Rosenblatt analyst Bernie McTernan tells investors in a research note partially titled "Ammunition for Both Sides." The bulls will expect the Q1 guide to once again be conservative while bears will point to the early impact of competition, adds the analyst. The results did little to change his view on the stock. McTernan continues to believe "unprecedented" competition and elevated penetration levels revenue growth will "slow substantially" in the coming years while content costs will continue to go higher. He reiterates a Neutral rating on Netflix with a price target of $275, up from $265.

Netflix price target lowered to $173 from $188 at Wedbush » 08:5101/2201/22/20
Wedbush analyst Michael…
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter lowered his price target for Netflix to $173 from $188 following quarterly results. The analyst notes that top-line results were modestly above expectations while profitability was generally below, notwithstanding a one-time tax adjustment. Pachter expects content spending to trigger substantial cash burn for many years. Content migration to competing services and price hikes may slow subscriber growth and consistently negative free cash flow makes DCF valuation speculative, he adds. The analyst has an Underperform rating on the shares.
