  • Netflix, Inc. (NFLX): The Hidden Upside in Netflix Stock
    Netflix is flipping the script on licensing shows
    By Adam Levy, InvestorPlace Contributor | May 19, 2016, 1:21 pm EDT

    Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) usually makes money by licensing content from other television and movie studios and selling a subscription to that content. But it’s flipping the script on Netflix stock investors. The online video streaming service has agreed to license its original content to a traditional cable network.

    Netflix and Univision announced a deal to air the first seasons of Narcos and Club de Cuervos on its networks. While it’s not a huge revenue driver for Netflix stock — The Wall Street Journal reports Univision is paying a low fee for broadcast rights — NFLX will receive promotion of its original content to one of the last markets in America where it’s underperforming.

    Additionally, this could lead a path to unforeseen revenue or a marketing campaign that actually makes money instead of expending it.

    Relief for Netflix Stock
    NFLX’s marketing expense grew 36% in 2015 as it expanded the service internationally. At the beginning of 2016, Netflix launched its service in more than 130 new countries, bringing it to every major market outside of China. This means marketing expenses are likely to continue to rise longer-term. In fact, during the first quarter, international marketing expenses increased 20% year over year.

    While Netflix’s original content can be a strong driver to get people to sign up for its service, it has thus far been aimed largely at English-speaking audienc

  • Netflix and Univision enter into a promotional deal to air first seasons of Narcos and Club de Cuervos
    Published By: Patrick Arruda on May 17, 2016 01:26 pm EST

    Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) and Univision Communications Inc., a media company in the US which serves Hispanic Americans, announced Tuesday that they have joined hands in an “unprecedented promotional deal” to broadcast the first season of its original TV series Narcos, which has been nominated for a Golden Globe, and a Spanish original show Club de Cuervos.

    Both the original programs will be aired on the Univision Network, allowing millions of Hispanic Americans to view the shows that have won hearts of Netflix subscribers around the globe. UniMás will broadcast the dramedy Club de Cuervos, ahead of the premier of its second season later this year. Even Narcos will be aired shortly before its second season gets released.

    Univision Commutations President and CEO, Randy Falco, said in a statement: “We are pleased to work with Netflix and leverage Univision’s unique reach and deep connection with our audience to introduce millions of our viewers to their ground-breaking series.”

    Netflix Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos, said that the Narcos series have been quite successful around the world, and the company ultimately aims to air to every Spanish house in the US. Doing so, he said, would also increase Hispanic viewers, thus helping Netflix’s user growth.

  • Netflix's Original Programming Is About To Become Even More Valuable
    May 17, 2016 10:29 AM ET|8 comments | About: Netflix, Inc. (NFLX)

    The major networks are making a push to acquire “stacking” rights for new and renewed series, which would give them the ability to stream more episodes online.

    Traditionally the networks could only air a “rolling five,” which would prevent new viewers from being able to catch-up (or binge) on older episodes later in the year.

    Netflix’s rise to power came through luring customers with established content licensed from other providers, but that has changed as original programming is now a bigger selling point.

    Networks are beginning to realize supporting Netflix and its fellow streamers isn’t best for its business, but given Netflix’s new focus the company remains in a power position.

    This week New York is the focal point of the advertising industry.

    Okay to be fair, the majority of the time New York is usually the focal point of the advertising industry (and most others), but this week is extra important because it is the upfronts. For those of you who don't know what the upfronts are, it is when the major networks unveil its new fall schedules.

    It's a big deal.

    Advertisers, analysts, investors, the media… pretty much anyone who can impact a network's bottom line is invited to attend to be wowed by a new slate of shows for the fall. Celebrities are flown in, drinks are pouring freely and every type of food is served up; the word "overkill" was designed specifically for these occasions.

    But again, it's a big deal.

    This is the time of the year where the networks make their money and if they have to fall over themselves to do it then so be it. Yet this year more than others, there's blood in the water. All of sudden the demand for the linear model has begun to grow again

In addition, Apple's iPhone 6S and iPhone SE have doubled their DRAM capacity to 2GB compared to the 1GB in iPhone 6," explains Kevin Tu, industry analyst with MIC.

    "While the global smartphone market has had a subdued growth, worldwide sales of notebook PCs and desktop PCs—both use commodity DRAM—have been on the decline. Hence, it is expected that mobile DRAM will continue to take up over 40% of the overall DRAM shipments throughout 2016, outpacing commodity and specialty DRAMs."

  • Netflix, Inc.: 3 Reasons to Be Bullish on Netflix Stock By Gaurav S. Iyer, IFC Published : May 13, 2016

    1). It’s the Language, Stupid: There is very little non-English content on Netflix right now. The company is working with local partners to expand its selection, but that transition was never going to happen overnight. Have a little patience. The international subscribers will flock to Netflix once there is content they can enjoy.

    2). Netflix Brought the Bacon: Netflix brought in $28.0 million in profit for the quarter. That’s $0.06 per share or, to put it another way, double what analysts were expecting. (Source: Ibid.)

    3). Eyeballs Are Everything: On top of everything else, Netflix crushed market estimates for new subscribers in the U.S. Wall Street thought the company would only add 1.82 million new subscribers, but Netflix drew in an additional 2.23 million Americans. (Source: Ibid.)

  • Netflix, Inc.: Prepare for an Oversold NFLX Bounce
    Support is looming large for NFLX stock, and the shares are ready for a short-term bounce
    By Joseph Hargett, InvestorPlace Contributor | May 9, 2016, 9:56 am EDT

    Let get this out of the way first — Netflix, Inc.’s (NFLX) earnings were good. The company beat expectations by 2 cents per share, saw revenue rise 24% year-over-year and crushed U.S. subscriber growth expectations.

    On the downside, international growth expectations fell short — the catalyst for NFLX stock’s 22% post-earnings decline.

    It’s about time this disappointment ran its course, however, and traders should take note of the possibility of a short-term recovery for NFLX.

    Technically speaking, NFLX stock is trading in oversold territory. The shares have pulled back to long-term support near $90 and are beginning to show signs that the worst of the post-earnings selloff is over.

    After dipping briefly below $90 on Thursday last week, NFLX rallied back on Friday and is looking to extend those gains today.

    Additionally, the $90 strike is home to potential put-related options support. More than 10,000 puts are open at the $90 strike between the weekly May 13 series and the monthly May 20 series.

  • Rob Crooke, Intel VP for Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group (NSG), joined Ian Yang, President of Intel China, on stage to talk about Optane technology and perform the first public demonstration. Optane, also known as 3D XPoint, promises DRAM-like performance with flash-like data storage retention. Once implemented, Optane will turn your computer into an instant booting device like a tablet or cell phone. The technology will also increase random performance by a significant amount--some speculate up to 10 times performance increase with small block sizes.

    This will increase the user experience to levels we cannot even imagine possible, yet. This is the most exciting memory product to come to market in over twenty years, and it promises to change computing as we know it.

    To show the awesome power of 3D XPoint, Intel chose to demonstrate sequential performance over Thunderbolt 3. The world's most powerful (and potentially expensive) persistent memory was reduced to a consumer backup device for its first working public demonstration.

    In the test, Intel used two computer systems. The first system utilized two Intel SATA SSDs to transfer a movie from the host machine to a Thunderbolt 3-connected device using another Intel SATA SSD. The transfer performance clearly shows a TLC-based SATA device--most likely the company's new SSD 540 or 5400 Series business-class drive. The second computer transferred the same movie file over Thunderbolt 3, but this time the host and destination media were based on Optane memory technology.

    On the surface, the 2 GB/s transfer was impressive. The performance was consistent and didn't take much time. Upon closer inspection, though, this was the worst possible demonstration of Optane technology Intel could have shown. The company's own SSD 750 Series could have produced similar results.

  • Netflix, Inc: Are We About to See the Biggest Surge in NFLX Stock History?
    By Gaurav S. Iyer, IFC Published : April 11, 2016

    NetflixIs NFLX Stock at a Tipping Point?
    Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is a favorite target for ignorant bears. These simpletons are the newbie investors who just look at NFLX stock and judge it on basic ratios like the price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple.
    Not only is that an amateurish way to approach investing, but it also doesn’t help you make any money. You’re supposed to be looking for mispriced securities, and unfortunately, those don’t come with a big red sign attached to them.

    Smart investors look for where the market’s going, not where it’s already been.
    I’m not saying that P/E ratios aren’t an important metric to consider, but context matters. It’s important to examine Netflix’s underlying business model before you decide whether or not the stock will rise.
    For Netflix, that means looking at two things: 1) how many subscribers is the company pulling in, and 2) how much money is it making per subscriber. Only then can we truly gauge whether or not there are any gains left in NFLX stock.
    At present, we only have Netflix’s subscriber count for 2015. The company pulled in 5.6 million new subscribers during the fourth quarter, 4.0 million of which were from international markets. The results were far above investors’ expectations. (Source: “Netflix Investors Like What They See as International Users Soar,” Bloomberg, January 19, 2016.)
    For the whole year, almost two-thirds of new subscribers came from foreign markets, meaning the company’s future depends on keeping that international audience satisfied.
    NFLX stock rose 7.7% after the results were announced in January, but I think that’s the tip of the iceberg. The company recently rolled out its flagship service in 130 additional countries, meaning its overseas audience could expand dramatically.
