Netflix price target raised to $285 from $230 at Macquarie
On October 19, 2022, Macquarie analyst Tim Nollen raised the firm’s price target on Netflix to $285 but kept a Neutral rating on the shares after the company posted a good beat on Q3 subscriber net adds and gave Q4 subscriber guidance of 4.2M subs, which he said reflects seasonal upside but not much help from the ad tier yet. While he is optimistic about growth from the ad tier and efforts to reduce password sharing, Nollen said P&L progress may take time.
Netflix price target raised to $365 from $325 at Oppenheimer
On October 19, 2022, Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein raised the firm’s price target on Netflix to $365 and kept an Outperform rating on the shares as subscriber trends appear to have bottomed ahead of ad-tier launch and crack-down on account sharing, driving $NFLX up 14% in after-hours. Jason Helfstein thinks that the launch of ad-tier and early advertiser demand are giving management confidence to crack down on 100M shared accounts in 2023. Further, Helfstein thinks pushing shared accounts to ad-tier will not only drive subscriber growth but also quickly create an ad-supported audience, as Netflix does not expect meaningful downgrading, holding back 4K support to ad-free.
Netflix beats on top and bottom, adds 2.4M subs vs. 1.09M estimated
