Twitter sets annual package for newly-promoted COO at $12M

Twitter stated in a regulatory filing: "Earlier this month, Anthony Noto was appointed COO and will continue as CFO until a successor is found... In conjunction with Noto's new role and additional responsibilities, on November 21, the compensation committee of Twitter's board awarded Noto 940,000 restricted stock units and 325,000 performance-based restricted stock units with a total compensation target of $12M per year... The RSUs will vest over a period of four years, subject to Noto's continued service through each vesting date, as follows: 50,000 RSUs will vest on each of February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1, 2017; 53,750 RSUs will vest on February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1, 2018; 50,000 RSUs will vest on February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1, 2019; and 81,250 RSUs will vest on February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1, 2020. The PRSUs will be eligible to vest based upon Twitter's achievement of certain performance targets over pre-determined performance periods. The board or the committee will set the performance targets and the performance periods prior to the end of the first quarter of each period... The committee has phased in the PRSUs so that by 2019 at least 50% of Noto's equity compensation is comprised of performance-based awards. In order to align the terms with other executives, the committee also approved an amendment to Noto's change of control and involuntary termination protection policy participation agreement to increase the lump sum severance payment from 50% of his annual base salary to 100% of his annual base salary in the event that Noto is involuntarily terminated."

Netflix price target raised to $151 from $133 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst David Miller raised his net subscriber growth assumptions for Netflix (NFLX) in 2017, taking up his domestic streaming net subscriber estimate by the end of 2017 to 53.7M from 53.6M and his end-year international net subscriber estimate to 55.8M from 54.8M. In doing so, he raised all of his income statement metrics and took up his price target accordingly to $151 from $133. Additionally, Miller contends that "simply because Twitter (TWTR) recently broadcast a few NFL games" does not mean Netflix will, or should, move into streaming sports.

Bain departure a loss for Twitter, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Blake Harper said the departure of COO Adam Bain is a loss for Twitter (TWTR), noting that he is well regarded internally and within the tech and advertising industries. Twitter is now searching for a full time CFO and a head of product and CEO Jack Dorsey continues to serve as full time CEO of Square (SQ) as well, which would "appear to leave its executive team stretched thin," said Harper, who keeps a Hold rating on Twitter shares.
