Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) longest losing streak for Netflix shares since March 2014
Wall Street is growing worried that Netflix’s best days could be behind it.Netflix shares were up about 4% Wednesday even as the broader market was mixed.
But Netflix(NFLX) stock had fallen for nine straight days — a stretch that included a 10% drop after the company stunned Wall Street by reporting a much smaller increase in subscribers than expected.
That’s the longest losing streak for Netflix shares since March 2014, when the stock fell for 11 consecutive days.
To put that into context, the Netflix show “Orange is the New Black” — one of its first original hits — was still a few months away from premiering its second season the last time Netflix had a losing streak this long.
The seventh (and final) season of “Orange is the New Black” will drop this Friday.
Just as Netflix helped lead to the demise of Blockbuster Video, other media and tech companies could one day kill Netflix.Investors’ fears of Netflix’s eventual demise may be a tad overblown.
However, the company could fall a lot further when you consider that the stock is still up 20% this year even after its recent slide. And shares trade at a nosebleed valuation of nearly 100 times 2019 earnings estimates.
So a little caution is probably advisable.”We think concerns around impending competitive launches will keep a bit of a lid on shares at least until we see the effect of competing services early next year,” said Instinet analyst Mark Kelley in a report after Netflix’s latest earnings.
His price target is $310 a share, which is slightly lower than the current price. In other words, Netflix could tread water for the foreseeable future.
