Twitter: Hundreds of thousands of Americans interacted with Russian bot accounts during election
In a blog post released Friday afternoon, Twitter Inc. provided updated information on the use of its platform by a Russian government-linked group to spread misinformation during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Twitter said that it would email more than 677,000 U.S. users of its social-media platform to inform them that they had interacted with accounts now linked to the Internet Research Agency. Twitter said it had identified 3,814 accounts--1,062 more than previously reported--linked to the IRA that sent more than 175,000 tweets in the ten weeks leading up to the election. In addition, Twitter said it had identified more than 50,000 automated accounts used to spread the information. "Any such activity represents a challenge to democratic societies everywhere, and we're committed to continuing to work on this important issue," the company said. Twitter said it would improve machine-learning capabilities to detect and deal with such accounts, limit some abilities within Tweetdeck and on Twitter's API to combat the spread of misinformation, and work with politicians to ensure more trustworthy information in this year's mid-term elections. Twitter stock fell about 0.3% in after-hours trading.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Tivo files additional patent infringement lawsuit against Comcast
Tivo Corp. said on Thursday that Rovi, which Tivo owns, has filed new patent infringement lawsuits against Comcast Corp. . Rovi alleges Comcast's X1 set top box platform infringes on technology invented and patented by Rovi, including pausing and resuming TV shows on different devices, restarting live programming in progress, advanced DVR recording features and advanced search and voice functionality. "Hundreds of media and entertainment leaders around the world recognize the value of our innovations by selecting our products and services and licensing our intellectual property," Tivo Chief Executive Enrique Rodriguez said in a statement. "Our goal is for Comcast to renew its long-standing license." In November, the International Trade Commission ruled in favor of Tivo in a previous patent infringement lawsuit brought against Comcast. Tivo said as part of the most recent lawsuit that it plans to file additional legal action with the International Trade Commission on the same patents, seeking an exclusion order that would prevent infringing Comcast set-top boxes from being imported to the U.S. Comcast shares were inactive in premarket trade on Thursday. Shares of Tivo were up more than 2%, but have declined nearly 27% in the last 12 months. By comparison, the S&P 500 index is up close to 21% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up more than 27%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Video game publishers have 'significant upside' as industry trends continue to shift
Analysts at BTIG on Wednesday initiated coverage on video game publishers Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. and Activision Blizzard Inc. with buy ratings, and on Electronic Arts Inc. with a neutral rating. The BTIG analysts, led by Brandon Ross, wrote in a note to investors that they believe there is still significant upside for video game publishers, even with the multi-year run stocks have enjoyed as profits have climbed higher and multiples have expanded. "Activision, Take-Two and EA have all seen significant gains over the past four years. As we began to research the space, our knee-jerk reaction was 'we missed it' and we wished we had covered these names earlier," Ross wrote. "The transformation of games from standalone packaged media to connected entertainment services is not a finite tailwind for publishers. As players engage with games, publishers are better able to monetize and continuously create richer and more valuable experiences for consumers, leading to further engagement and profits." The reason for EA's neutral rating is analysts have concerns about the company's ability to execute on the industry trends. Shares of Take-Two have gained close to 132% in the trailing 12-month period, while shares of Activision have gained 78% and EA shares have gained 39%. By comparison, the S&P 500 index is up 20% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 25%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Google looking to sell Zagat: report
Alphabet Inc. is considering selling the Zagat restaurant-reviews property six years after acquiring it. Google, which reportedly paid more than $100 million for the property, has talked with multiple interested parties about selling Zagat, Reuters reported Wednesday based on anonymous sources. Google bought the service after reportedly exploring the purchase of Yelp Inc. and Groupon Inc. , and eventually reached a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission resulting from the search engine's use of content from sites like Yelp. Yelp recently formally accused Google of breaking the rules it agreed to in that settlement.

Legal marijuana industry could generate $40 billion in economic impact by 2021
A new report released by Arcview Market Research on Tuesday says the legal marijuana industry is expected to generate nearly $40 billion in economic impact by 2021. That would be roughly a 150% increase in economic output from the $16 billion cannabis generated in 2017. The report provides estimates on cannabis's total economic contribution, direct and indirect jobs created and tax receipts from each of the 35 states that are expected to have medical and, or recreational marijuana by 2021, according to a news release. "Across the country, Americans are worried about being able to find jobs and support their families," Arcview Market Research Editor-in-Chief Tom Adams said in a statement. "The numerous employment opportunities created by the cannabis industry, especially in states that are legalizing adult use, cross the spectrum from retail and service jobs to science, technology and other traditional professions." The report estimates that legalization of adult-use, or recreational marijuana sales in California, which began on Tuesday, will create nearly 146,000 cannabis-related jobs in the state in four years. As California joined some 28 other states, and the District of Columbia, that have legalized recreational marijuana stocks of companies tied to the industry saw big share gains on Tuesday.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Netflix shares gain premarket after upgrade at Macquarie Research
Shares of Netflix Inc. were upgraded to outperform from a neutral rating by analysts at Macquarie Research on Tuesday. The main reasons for the upgrade are the analysts' new preference for companies with subscription models rather than ad-driven, and scaled distribution with an international presence. Lead analyst Tim Nollen wrote that Netflix's improving revenue and earnings were also a driver for the upgrade. "We believe Netflix is taking several steps to improve this beyond the market's obsession with sub numbers to date," Nollen wrote. "A second round of price increases is now coming through, Netflix is expanding its distribution relationships with cable operators and telcos globally, international growth is taking off on a concerted strategy to develop local content offerings, and Netflix is beginning to work on ways to reduce password sharing, which could drive even more subscribers." Nollen also said Netflix remains far ahead of its peers, and Walt Disney Co.'s forthcoming streaming service, which won't launch until 2019, won't threaten Netflix. However, the streaming giant's negative free cash flow is still a risk, and he noted that the Federal Communication Commission's repeal of Obama-era net neutrality rules could also be a big risk if internet service providers decide to raise bandwidth prices. Netflix shares were up 1.5% in premarket trade on Tuesday and are up 55% in the trailing 12-month period, while the S&P 500 index is up more than 19% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 25%.
