With a market capital of over $10 billion, Netflix is currently trading between $180 to $190. The stock has seen a whopping 200% growth compared to last year's $60 valuation in November. The company's stock rose nearly 50% in January after it reported Q4 earnings, where a net income of $8 million surpassed Wall Street estimates.
Netflix remains a decent company with great growth potential for the future. It already pleased some of its investors when the stock grew over 200%. The Internet TV industry is going nowhere as more and more people from different countries are adapting this latest trend. RedBox and other relatively new streaming services have also entered into the industry. The growth of Internet TV, along with Netflix's huge consumer base, offers a lot to be optimistic about. However, the risk factor involved is mainly due to competition as Amazon tries to put Netflix out of business. Amazon's global brand recognition and its future strategies will definitely impact Netflix in one way or another. Netflix remains a very interesting stock with very high capital gain potential, but at the cost of severe risk, which I believe is worth taking.
