Today's Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Flex Pharma and Dr. Reddy's Laboratories

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 16, 2018 / U.S. markets failed to remain in the green on Monday as a technology sector selloff erased earlier gains. Tech giants Netflix and Apple both dropped more than 1.8 percent after analysts change their price targets on the stocks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average decreased 0.35 percent to close at 25,250.55, while the S&P 500 Index declined 0.59 percent to close at 2,750.79. The Nasdaq Composite Index closed down 0.88 percent to close at 7,430.74.

"While broader market performance and rising rates concerns have been more important factors for stock price performance, we believe that upside to consensus expectations and what the strength in subscriber net additions says about Netflix's business, beyond just guidance for the next quarter, is likely to be a positive catalyst for the stock," according to Goldman's Heath Terry.
