    Netflix Stock Cools Down, But It Still Dominates the Space

    The quarterly results Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) posted after Thursday's closing bell rang cold have been worse, but most investors decided they should have been better. Granted, owners of Netflix stock can be a tough crowd to please. They've become accustomed to not just meeting estimates, but handily topping them. When that didn't happen by all key measures, the stock's steep valuation and unfairly high expectations quickly turned into a liability for the company's stock, sending it lower by 3% in Thursday's after-hours trading action. Of course, the ever-changing landscape of the streaming video market along with a lackluster first quarter view may have nudged investors to that conclusion. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips ### Netflix Earnings Recap For the fourth fiscal quarter ending in December, Netflix turned $4.187 billion worth of revenue into an operating profit of 30 cents per share of Netflix stock. Analysts were collectively calling for sales of $4.21 billion, versus the company's previously-offered revenue guidance of $4.199 billion. Fourth-quarter sales were also up 27.4% year-over-year. The bottom line was down from the year-ago comparable profit of 41 cents, but better than the anticipated 24 cents. Netflix's profits have been tough for anyone to handicap, as spending on international expansion -- and the subscriber additions linked to that expansion -- has varied profitability from one quarter to the next. Arguably more important to shareholders, however, was the streaming giant's subscriber growth of 8.84 million -- a record. Pros had been calling for 7.6 million new accounts, down from the 8.2 million added during the fourth quarter of 2017. The company had previously suggested Q4's subscriber additions would also be around 7.6 million. With no margin for error on any of these criteria, relatively modest beats on a couple of fronts and tepid Q1 guidance, though, shareholders readily turned into sellers. ### Tougher Competition Ahead The lackluster quarterly report comes at a time when Netflix stock owners already had much to think about, for better and worse. Earlier in the week, Netflix announced it would be raising the price of its monthly subscription cost by $1 to $2, depending on which plan subscribers currently utilize. Past price increases have been met with mixed responses, with many of them spurring a measurable slowdown in subscriber additions. But, neither revenue growth nor subscriber growth has ever slowed or contracted permanently. The competitive backdrop is different this time, however, which could finally lead to a mostly unexpected headwind. Competitors, simply put, are finally learning how to compete with Netflix, and are legitimately trying to do so. Hulu, a competing streaming platform backed by Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS), Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ:FOXA) and Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), just announced it had expanded its customer base to 25 million thanks to the addition of 8 million viewers last year. It's still a fraction of Netflix's total customer count, but it's notable that Netflix isn't the default go-to choice it was just a few years ago. Meanwhile, so-called "skinny bundles" that don't offer as much variety as traditional cable television does do offer most of what viewers want to watch, continue to gain traction. Dish Network (NASDAQ:DISH) venture SlingTV, for instance, added another 26,000 users during the third quarter of last year, bringing the total headcount to just under 2.4 million. Most major cable names also now offer some sort of portable version of their service along with a respectable library of on-demand programming, if only as an effort to quell the cord-cutting movement partially driven by skinny bundles. These developments may have contributed to Netflix's user-growth shortfall, though much of the headwind remains in front of the company. Disney is also developing a standalone streaming service that should launch later this year after rolling out a successful streaming version of its ESPN channel last year. Netflix still dominates the space, to be clear, and Netflix stock remains the only pure play for investors looking to plug into the opportunity. But, the company's future may not be quite as heroic as its past now that the market is more saturated and competition is heating up. Of particular concern is the level of spending Netflix will have to take on in an effort to attract and retain consumers that are weighing alternatives. Last quarter's cost of revenue was 23% higher on a year-over-year basis, reaching $2.73 billion. As of the previous quarter, a total of $19 billion in content spending commitments were already on its books. ### Looking Ahead for Netflix Stock As of the most recent look prior to the company's fourth-quarter earnings report, analysts were calling for 2019 revenue of $19.9 billion and earnings of $4.11 per share, both of which would be well up from year-ago levels. Nearer-term, analysts are expecting a per-share profit of 84 cents for the quarter now underway, on sales of $4.60 billion. The company expects per share of 56 cents on revenue of $4.49 billion. Subscriber additions for the first quarter are expected to reach, on average, 7.78 million versus 7.41 million for the comparable quarter a year earlier, though the company said in its Q4 review that it's modeling net additions of 8.9 million. * 7 Companies Apple Should Consider Buying The fourth-quarter and full-year report will likely spur some changes to these outlooks, though minor ones at best.

  • Can Hulu’s Growing Subscriber Base Pose a Threat to Netflix?
    Market Realist13 days ago

    Can Hulu’s Growing Subscriber Base Pose a Threat to Netflix?

    Inside Hulu’s Subscriber Growth amid Netflix’s Dominance (Continued from Prior Part) ## Hulu faces competition in the streaming space Hulu faces stiff competition from streaming giants Netflix (NFLX), Amazon (AMZN) Prime, AT&T’s (T) HBO Now, and others. Hulu also competes with pay-TV companies that have rolled out their own streaming services, such as AT&T’s DIRECTV NOW and Dish Network’s (DISH) Sling TV. Therefore, to compete with digital players in the streaming space, Hulu is focusing on adding subscribers by investing in original content. The company has also added many popular TV shows to its offerings, which has boosted its number of subscribers. At the end of 2018, Hulu reportedly had a subscriber base of ~25 million, higher than the earlier expectation of 23 million–24 million made by CEO Randy Freer last month. ## Hulu’s and Netflix’s spending on original content Hulu has only a few original series, which include hits such as The Handmaid’s Tale and Castle Rock, compared to Netflix, which reportedly planned to spend ~$13 billion on new content in 2018 to roll out 1,000 original shows and movies and has plans to increase that amount in 2019. Hulu reportedly spent ~$2.5 billion on content in 2018, the same as in 2017. According to the Diffusion Group, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are expected to spend $10 billion annually and triple their combined investments in original shows by 2022. The Walt Disney Company (DIS) will own a larger stake in Hulu after the completion of its acquisition of the media assets of 21st Century Fox. This development could further challenge Netflix. Disney is also set to launch its Disney-branded direct-to-consumer business in late 2019, which could raise further concerns for the streaming giant. AT&T’s WarnerMedia is planning to release its over-the-top streaming service this year. Nevertheless, Netflix is still expected to remain the king of original content. According to Statista, the projected number of subscribers for Netflix is expected to reach 65 million in the United States by 2020. Other streaming services HBO Now, DIRECTV NOW, Sling TV, and PS Vue are expected to have 5.6 million, 5.5 million, 3 million, and 0.5 million US subscribers, respectively, by 2020.

  • Behind Charter’s Efforts to Drive Broadband Gains

    Behind Charter’s Efforts to Drive Broadband Gains

    How Legacy Media Players Are Surviving in a Changing Industry (Continued from Prior Part) ## Broadband revenue rose 7.2% Charter Communications (CHTR) has tapped CUJO AI as its network intelligence solutions partner. In this position, CUJO AI will enhance security and privacy for Charter’s more than 24 million broadband customers. CUJO AI says its helps Internet service providers reduce costs, save time, and deliver additional value to their customers. With this in mind, Charter can be seen betting on its relationship with CUJO AI to cut costs and improve customer retention. With the rise of cord-cutting, cable companies such as Charter are increasingly leaning on their broadband businesses to offset pay-TV losses. Charter’s broadband revenue jumped 7.2% YoY (year-over-year) to $3.8 billion in the third quarter of 2018. Comcast (CMCSA) and Altice USA (ATUS) grew their broadband revenues 9.6% and 10.8% YoY, respectively, in the third quarter. ## Selling broadband services to cord-cutters Charter lost 66,000 pay-TV customers in the third quarter of 2018. AT&T (T), Dish Network (DISH), and Comcast lost 346,000, 341,000, and 106,000 pay-TV customers, respectively, in the third quarter. Many cable companies are keen on keeping cord-cutters on their broadband services, which explains why they’re investing in boosting their broadband speeds and enhancing the customer experience, like Charter is trying to do with CUJO AI. In the pursuit of broadband revenue, cable companies are not only competing among themselves but also battling wireless providers such as Verizon (VZ) and AT&T, which are building ultrafast 5G networks to allow them to better compete in the broadband market.

    Disney Halts Its Parenting Blog as the Focus Shifts to Netflix

    How Legacy Media Players Are Surviving in a Changing Industry (Continued from Prior Part) ## Babble.com stops updating content The Walt Disney Company (DIS) quietly shut down its parenting blog, Babble.com, in the middle of last month, according to TechCrunch. Disney acquired Babble.com in 2011 for ~$40 million–$45 million, Business Insider reported. The purchase of Babble was viewed as meant to help Disney beef up its family-focused digital publishing work, particularly in the young parents segment. Now, though, it seems like Disney has other priorities, such as expanding into the video streaming market, and that seems to call for doing away with some operations to create room for the new project. “As Disney Digital Network evolves to support the launch of Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, Babble.com ceased to update editorial content as of December 14, 2018,” Disney said in a statement provided to TechCrunch. ## Disney is gearing up to challenge Netflix Disney+ is the name of Disney’s Netflix-like video streaming service, which is expected to launch later this year. Tied to the launch of Disney+, Disney is purchasing a portfolio of entertainment assets from 21st Century Fox (FOX) for $71.3 billion and removing its shows and movies from Netflix (NFLX). Disney is set to join the growing list of traditional media companies that have sought to counter Netflix and similar online video providers that are fueling cord-cutting. AT&T (T) and Dish Network (DISH) have also created their own Netflix challengers known as DIRECT NOW and SlingTV, respectively. Disney generated $14.3 billion in revenue in its fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, which ended in September 2018.

    Why Comcast Dropped Fuse

    Comcast (CMCSA) dropped its Fuse network at the start of 2019, ending a carriage relationship that had been more than a decade long. The decision to drop Fuse came after Comcast noted that its programming was similar to content on other networks that it also carried, Deadline reported. Dropping Fuse looked like a move by Comcast to eliminate programming duplication to allow it to deliver a better experience for its TV customers.

    Comcast’s Sky and STV Ink a Strategic Partnership

    How Legacy Media Players Are Surviving in a Changing Industry ## Programming partnership European broadcaster and Comcast (CMCSA) subsidiary Sky has entered into a five-year strategic programming partnership with Scottish digital media provider STV. As a result of the partnership, Sky’s customers in Scotland will get access to STV’s programming on their Sky set-top boxes for the first time. “This partnership with STV will bring even more great content to Sky customers across Scotland, as well as enabling us to collaborate and launch the first fully regionalised HD service from a public service broadcaster,” Sky executive Stephen van Rooyen said in a statement. ## Becoming a more global company Comcast took over Sky last year following a months-long bidding war pitting it against 21st Century Fox (FOX), which had the support of the Walt Disney Company (DIS). Comcast pursued Sky to help it become a more global company. According to Comcast, adding Sky to its family of businesses will see its international business account for 25% of its total revenue, up from the current 9.0%. Sky generated $17.4 billion in revenue its fiscal 2018, which ended in June 2018. Its revenue rose from $16.5 billion in fiscal 2017. ## American TV market shrinking Comcast is seeking international expansion at a time when the traditional US TV market is shrinking at faster rate than in any other region, according to data on cord-cutting from IHS Markit. Comcast shed 106,000 pay-TV subscribers in the third quarter of 2018. AT&T (T) and Dish Network (DISH) shed 346,000 and 341,000 pay-TV customers, respectively, in the period.
