A number of Wall Street analysts have revised up their forecasts in regard to the stocks performance. Bryan Kraft of Deutsche Bank upgraded Netflix to “Hold” from “Sell” in a note released on Thursday, as, in his view, the company will report solid international growth data supported by strong results in Western Europe. According to Kraft, higher demand worldwide can be observed as a result of “original content (e.g. Luke Cage – Sept. 30 release, The Crown, Gilmore Girls, and Fuller House).” Kraft projects 4.35 million new subscribers globally.
There have also been more moderate opinions. “We are estimating 1.46 million net new U.S. streaming subs and 3.75 million net new international streaming subs, roughly in line with guidance”, according to a January 12th note by Mark Mahaney of RBC.
The guidance by Netflix pointed to 3.35 million international subscribers.
