Donald Trump inspires Netflix to bring back 'Arrested Development' for 5th season
Netflix Inc. on Wednesday announced the hit show "Arrested Development" will return to the streaming service for a fifth season in 2018. In commenting on the show's return, series creator Mitchell Hurwitz hinted that bringing it back was inspired by its resemblance to the family life of President Donald Trump. "In talks with Netflix we all felt that stories about a narcissistic, erratically behaving family in the building business -- and their desperate abuses of power -- are really underrepresented on TV these days," Hurwitz said in a statement. "I am so grateful to them and to [20th Century Fox] TV for making this dream of mine come true in bringing the Bluths, George Sr., Lucille and the kids; Michael, Ivanka, Don Jr., Eric, George-Michael, and who am I forgetting, oh Tiffany. Did I say Tiffany? -- back to the glorious stream of life." "Arrested Development" was Netflix's foray into original comedy programming when it launched season four in 2013, said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. And Fox Television Group Co-CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman said the show is still one they get asked about the most, after being off the air for 11 years. Netflix shares, while down 2% on Wednesday, have gained 26% in the year to date. The S&P 500 index is up 6% in the year.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.

U.S. stocks closer lower as Goldman, J&J disappoint with their results
U.S. stocks closed lower on Tuesday, pressured after a number of key companies disappointed with their quarterly results, renewing concerns that the market's valuation may not be supported by economic activity. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 113 points, or 0.6%, to 20,524. The S&P 500 lost 6.8 points to 2,342, a drop of 0.3%. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 7 points to 5,849, a drop of 0.1%.

Netflix shares fall after streaming company adds fewer subscribers than expected in Q1
Netflix Inc. shares fell nearly 4% in post market trading after the streaming giant reported it added fewer subscribers than Wall Street had expected during the first quarter. Net income for the first quarter came in at $178.2 million, or 40 cents per share, which was an improvement compared with the $27.7 million, or 6 cents per share the company reported during the same period a year ago. Analysts following the company on FactSet expected earnings per share to be 37 cents. Revenue for the quarter hit $2.64 billion, above last year's $1.96 billion and in line with FactSet's $2.64 billion revenue consensus. Netflix stock was likely driven down by the fact it added 4,950 subscribers during the quarter, which was lower than FactSet's expected 5,320 new subscribers and below Netflix's guidance for 5,200 net adds. The big drop off was in international streaming where Netflix added 3,530 memberships, which was softer growth than the 4,510 it added in the year-earlier period and the 5,120 it added during the most recent fourth quarter. Netflix said it expects to add 3,200 new subscribers in the second quarter. Shares of Netflix have gained nearly 19% in the year to date and 32% during the last 12 months.

Nike, Michael Kors and Amazon are tops with teens
The latest "Taking Stock with Teens Survey" from Piper Jaffray shows that the top brand for clothing and shoes is Nike Inc. , Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. is number one for handbags, and Amazon.com Inc. is the top shopping website.

Netflix upgraded to buy from neutral on belief of strong Q1 subscriber adds
Netflix may be in for a first quarter of strengthening subscriber numbers, according to analysts at UBS led by Doug Mitchelson, who upgraded the stock to buy from neutral. Shares of the streaming giant were up as much as 1.7% in premarket trade on Monday. Despite a period of fewer original content releases, Mitchelson wrote he sees upside to Netflix's subscriber guidance given growth in Europe and Latin America, as well as modest improvements in Japan. Netflix, after reporting adding 7.1 million subscribers in the most recent fourth quarter, is guiding for 5.2 million additions. Analysts tracked by FactSet, on average, expect the company to add 5.3 million subscribers. "Netflix is certainly well-liked and not inexpensive, but we do see the potential for Netflix to exceed Wall Street subscriber growth expectations and believe that concerns regarding competition and content costs are misplaced," Mitchelson wrote in a note to clients. He also noted that commentary around the success of Netflix's integration with Comcast Corp.'s X1 set top box is encouraging, leading to lower churn as more deals roll out. However, Mitchelson said a concern worth following is the potential for a newly Republican Federal Communication Commission to roll back, or otherwise eliminate net neutrality rules. Shares of Netflix have gained nearly 37% in the trailing 12-month period, while the S&P 500 index is up 19% during the same time frame.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
