Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Message Board

  • nw2000_ca nw2000_ca Apr 4, 2013 3:11 PM Flag

    Weekly options expire tomorrow. Employment Situation will be out in the morning.

    By purchasing the 170-strike calls at a volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of $2.78, the traders will profit if Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) climbs back atop the $172.28 level (strike plus VWAP) by tomorrow's closing bell. Meanwhile, the VWAP of the 175-strike calls was $1.28, indicating a breakeven of $176.28 for the buyers. Risk is capped at the initial premium paid for the contracts.

    At last check, NFLX is testing the waters in the $168.30 neighborhood, home to its ascending 60-day moving average. Over the past three months, the equity has outperformed the broader S&P 500 Index (SPX) by nearly 72 percentage points, but took a breather yesterday, which some analysts attribute to the aforementioned Icahn-related rumors.

    Despite the stock's longer-term uptrend, though, Wall Street remains skeptical of Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX). The equity boasts just six "strong buy" endorsements, compared to 17 tepid "holds" and four "sell" or worse ratings. Plus, the consensus 12-month price target of $141.44 represents a serious discount to Netflix Inc.'s current price. Should the stock rebound off of trendline support, a flood of upbeat analyst attention could help the shares resume their quest for new highs.
