After reaching a 52-week high above $148 at the end of March, share price in the video streaming service has corrected slightly in the first 10 days of April to below $148.
However, the company is expected to report its Q1 earnings later this month. Because of its track record of consistently meeting its EPS estimate and remaining within 1 percent of its revenue estimates, analysts remain bullish on the stock and expect the company to maintain its good guidance and potentially add 5.2 million subscribers over the quarter, according to the company's own projection.
