What are Wall Street analysts saying about Netflix stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Netflix stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Netflix shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. We believe continuing subscriber addition and expanding original content portfolio will help the company to sustain growth going forward. Moreover, rapid international penetration and expanding regional content are major growth drivers. However, we note the company has mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. The company’s increasing marketing spends and higher investments on original and acquired content will continue to hurt profitability, at least in the near term. Moreover, saturation in the domestic market poses concern. The company’s increase in subscription charges in the U.S. might lead to a backlash on subscriber growth going forward. Further, rising competition from players like Amazon and Apple is a major headwind." (7/12/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We also tweaked our cost forecasts moderately lower and raised our ’19 and beyond subscriber forecasts. The changes drove a $20 increase in our target price to $420. NFLX INVESTMENT THESIS REMAINS COMPELLING- NFLX offers consumers an increasingly compelling unique entertainment experience on virtually any device, w/o commercials at a relatively low cost." (4/17/2018)
  • 3. Aegis analysts commented, "We project 1.65M and 6.0M Domestic and International net additions, respectively, for a total of 7.65M net adds (vs. 8.3M in 4Q17). We expect Netflix to report results above our estimates but guide conservatively, or cautiously, for 2Q. 1Q subscriber net additions should be driven by Jessica Jones, Altered Carbon, partnerships with Altice, T-Mobile DT, Cox, and Verizon (low churn subs), a continuation of the appeal of The Crown, Bright, and Stranger Things from 4Q17, in addition to increased marketing spend and overall secular trends of media viewership shifting to the Internet. 2Q18, is up against a tough YoY content slate compare, which should lead to a less robust guide. For 2Q18, we project 1.5M Domestic net additions and 5.5M International net additions. The stock, in our view, continues to respond to subscriber outperformance and guidance and we are unlikely to see significant strength in the latter." (4/16/2018)
