What are Wall Street analysts saying about Netflix stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Netflix stock:
  • 1. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe this may signal a limitation on future pricing power, particularly in a soon to be increased competitive DTC landscape. While we believe both Netflix and Disney+ can be successful, investors will be increasingly focused on domestic trends thru ’20E. While domestic growth expectations are lower than international, Netflix must maintain a domestic growth baseline in order to meet bull camp expectations. For us to get more bullish on the shares, we need to see potential for either a sustained 25%+ revenue CAGR thru ’21E or a steeper FCF leverage trajectory. For now, we maintain our Neutral rating and $350 price target." (4/17/2019)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We outline our thoughts ahead of the quarter below. Key Points 1Q expectations: We forecast +1.61mm domestic paid net streaming subscriber additions in 1Q versus consensus of +1.60mm and the company’s forecast of +1.60mm. For international streaming, we estimate +7.35mm versus consensus of +7.32mm and guidance for +7.30mm. 1Q results follow 4Q’s impressive paid net add performance as the company added nearly +9mm paid net subscribers, above guidance by over +1mm (and above our pre-4Q guide expectations by approximately +4mm paid net adds). Our revenue growth estimate for 1Q is +21% y/y, in line with guidance of +21% y/y. The 1Q revenue deceleration is impacted by an approximate 600bp FX headwind (~$200mm), which should improve through the year based on current spot rates (the company faced a $183mm FX headwind in 4Q). We expect operating margins of 9.0% in 1Q, versus guidance of 8.9%." (4/8/2019)
  • 3. 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)
