    Stocks in Facebook, Amazon lead list of names to hit 52-week highs as Dow breaks above 25K

    Shares of a number of tech giants touched fresh 52-week highs on Thursday, including Facebook, Netflix and Amazon, as stocks jumped to records in the third trading session of 2018. Facebook Inc. hit a fresh 52-week peak at $186.21, with a gain of nearly 10% so far this week, Amazon.com Inc.'s shares rose to a peak at $1,215.87, up 3.5% on the week, while shares of Netflix Inc. carved out a new top at $207.05, with a gain of 6.6% so far this year, though prices pulled back somewhat.

The Nasdaq was recently up 0.2% at 7,075.

    Netflix confirms sequel to blockbuster original film 'Bright'

    Netflix Inc. on Wednesday confirmed that it has ordered a sequel to it's Dec. 22 fantasy cop ride along original film "Bright." The sequel will again star Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, and David Ayer will write and direct it. Netflix said that "Bright," which was widely panned by critics and has a 28% Rotten Tomatoes score, was the company's highest viewed original film ever on the service in its first week, and one of the platform's biggest original productions (including sequels, series and additional seasons). The company also said "Bright" is the top movie on Netflix in every country the service is in, with more people overseas watching it than are watching it domestically. The film, costing a reported $90 million to produce, garnered 11 million viewers in its first three days, according to Nielsen measurements, which MarketWatch calculated would be equal to about a $95 million Friday-to-Sunday opening weekend at the box office. Netflix didn't provide a release date for the "Bright" sequel. Shares of Netflix have gained 59% in the trailing 12-month period, while the S&P 500 index is up 20% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up nearly 25%.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%.

    Netflix gives executives a big raise, cites new tax law

    Netflix Inc. said Thursday that it plans to increase the annual salary for a number of its top executives in 2018. Most notably, Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos will earn a $12 million base salary in 2018, after bringing in a salary of just $1 million in the last three years, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The streaming giant cited the recent passage of the U.S. federal tax reform as the reason for the change. The company said salaries of more than $1 million for named executives, other than the chief financial officer, were subject to a substantial surcharge. Because of that, Netflix had a performance-based bonus plan for certain executives; in 2017, Sarandos had a $1 million salary but a bonus target of $9 million. "With the recent passage of federal tax reform, the performance bonus plan will no longer eliminate such surcharges," the company said in the filing. "As such, the compensation committee of the board of directors has determined that all cash compensation for 2018 will be paid as salary." Netflix Chief Executive Reed Hastings will earn $700,000 in salary, with $28.7 million in annual stock options. Sarandos will receive $14.3 million in stock options in addition to his $12 million salary. Chief Product Officer Greg Peters will earn a $6 million salary and $6.6 million in stock options, while Chief Financial Officer David Wells earns $2.8 million in salary with $2.5 million in stock options and General Counsel David Hyman will earn $2.5 million in salary with $3.3 million in stock options.

    Jeffrey Tambor leaving Amazon series 'Transparent' amid harassment claims: report

    Emmy-winning actor Jeffrey Tambor is leaving the Amazon series "Transparent" amid allegations of sexual harassment, Deadline reported on Sunday. "What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago," Tambor told Deadline. "I've already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue," Tambor said. "Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don't see how I can return to Transparent." Tambor has been accused of predatory behavior by an actress and an assistant on the show. The future of the show, which streams on Amazon.com Inc.'s Amazon Prime, is uncertain, although its writers had already begun to explore a fifth season without Tambor, according to reports. It was unclear if the planned fifth season of Netflix Inc.'s "Arrested Development," on which Tambor also co-stars, will continue.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Kevin Spacey to be cut from upcoming movie 'All the Money in the World'

    Kevin Spacey's scenes in the upcoming film "All the Money in the World" will be cut out, and Christopher Plummer will take over his role in reshot scenes, Deadline reported late Wednesday. The unprecedented move comes after a mounting number of sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey, dating back decades. Last week, Spacey was fired from the Netflix Inc. series "House of Cards," which will produce a final season without him. "All the Money in the World," from Sony Corp.'s Sony Pictures, stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams and is directed by Ridley Scott, and has generated awards buzz. It is scheduled to open Dec. 22, and Deadline reported that is still the target date. Spacey reportedly spent eight to 10 days shooting his scenes, and reshoots with Plummer are expected to start immediately. Plummer will take over Spacey's role as J. Paul Getty, the billionaire oil tycoon who refused to pay ransom after his grandson was kidnapped in 1973. Another film starring Spacey, "Gore," a biopic on novelist Gore Vidal that just wrapped production, has been canceled by Netflix.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
