NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Netflix subscribers might not be thrilled with the company's plans to increase prices, but investors appear to be more accepting.

Netflix (NFLX) shares reached another all-time high Wednesday morning, boosted by an upgrade from JPMorgan, which raised its price target on the stock to $340.

Meanwhile, shares of Coinstar (CSTR) are up more than 7% this week. The owner of Red Box is expected to benefit from Netflix's new price policy by attracting new customers. Coinstar is trading within 12% of its 52-week high.

In other news, News Corp dropped its bid to buy British Sky Broadcasting, saying the situation has become "too politicized" for it to continue negotiations. News Corp (NWSA, Fortune 500) shares edged higher on the news.

These are some of the themes that are attracting investors' attention on StockTwits Wednesday:
