Netflix is at the center of three very strong trends: improved speed and bandwidth for Internet and mobile Internet globally, increased demand across all screens for on-demand video content, and data mining for personalization and customized content. There are substantial positive catalysts underlying Netflix. The stock, on traditional growth metrics with a 2.0 PEG, is fairly valued today. However, should Netflix continue to overdeliver on earnings, the estimates upon which the PEG is based underestimate the PEG and tip the scales to an attractive valuation. In either case, Netflix is highly attractive on pullbacks. Lastly, for investors who like to identify a long-term growth trend and invest in the leader in the bullseye of that trend, Netflix is a game changer. Netflix should be a part of a long-term portfolio investing in disruptive technologies.
