What are Wall Street analysts saying about Netflix stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Netflix stock:
  • 1. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "ZuRICH (dpa-AFX Analyser) – Die Schweizer Bank Credit Suisse hat die Einstufung fur Netflix auf Outperform" mit einem Kursziel von 440 US-Dollar belassen. Jungste App-Downloads starkten erst recht seine Einschatzung, dass die Marktschatzungen fur den Nettokundenzuwachs im ersten Quartal des Film- und Streaming-Konzerns zu niedrig seien, schrieb Analyst Douglas Mitchelson in einer am Mittwoch vorliegenden Studie./ajx/mne Veroffentlichung der Original-Studie: 08.04.2020 / 04:33 / UTC Erstmalige Weitergabe der Original-Studie: Datum in Studie nicht angegeben / Uhrzeit in Studie nicht angegeben / Zeitzone in Studie nicht angegeben Hinweis: Informationen zur Offenlegungspflicht bei Interessenkonflikten im Sinne von § 85 Abs. 1 WpHG, Art. 20 VO (EU) 596/2014 fur das genannte Analysten-Haus finden Sie unter http://web.dpa-afx.de/offenlegungspflicht/offenlegungs_pflicht.html." (4/8/2020)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Netflix’s fourth-quarter 2019 subscriber addition rate declined in the United States, primarily due to price hike and stiff competition. However, in international streaming markets, Netflix’s subscriber growth continued unabated, driven by a solid content portfolio. Moreover, the launch of low-priced mobile plans in India, Indonesia and Malaysia is expected to expand the subscriber base in the Asia Pacific. However, management expects net additions in the paid subscriber base to decline in first-quarter 2020. Notably, shares have underperformed the industry in the past year. Moreover, high streaming content obligation and increased spending are expected to hurt free cash flow generation. Nevertheless, a solid content portfolio and expanding bundle offerings through partnerships with telcos bode well for Netflix." (1/24/2020)
