Netflix earnings review

In extended trade last night, Netflix saw its shares tumble by a quarter of its entire value.

Almost 25% was wiped off the share price in extended trade on the IG platform last night as a result of earnings coming through for the latest quarter, disappointing by a fair margin and subscribers down as well for the first time in ten years.

The streaming giant lost 200 000 subscribers in the first three months of the year. That's the first in a decade, falling short of its forecast of adding 2.5 million more new people to its subscription list.

The group partly explained this performance by the suspension of its service in Russia, resulting in the loss of around about 700 000 members of its role in the Russian economy. The group reported earnings per share (EPS) of $3.53 on revenues of $7.87 billion.

The group also warned that it will address the password sharing issue and wants households sharing passwords to start paying individually. Netflix estimates more than 30 million US and Canadian households are using a shared password to access its content - 100 million households worldwide.

You've only got to look at the share price to realise what happened. You can see quite clearly the effect of all this last night.

Netflix - technical analysis

This is an extended trade, so it isn't represented by the normal chart. It will start on the back foot when things get underway later on in the cash session. It has opened on extended trade on this Wednesday morning.

You can see a very small green candle but, broadly speaking, it is holding onto much of the gains that it lost last night. Just going back, you can see quite clearly this is a level not seen here since the 26th of September 2019.

Let's remind ourselves as to what happened during the Covid lockdowns, the Covid lows represented by the bottom of this blue box down here at $290.39. The stock then went on to make 141% upside, taking us all the way up to over $700 a share. And then, since that high point back on the 18th of November last year, we've seen a really big reduction in value and that 52% was as at the close last night.

If you extend that down you can see the total value lost in the company since that period, since the record high, which has been a whopping 63%. So, we're expecting a big drop at the start today for Netflix on the cash session.

    • The inclusion of trading volume as a standard indicator in charting software for the past three decades is not without reason—it offers a vital advantage. Volume analysis grants traders valuable insights into the actions of market participants at different price levels. By focusing on volume, traders can react more effectively to price movements rather than attempting to predict the future direction of prices, as is often the case with many other technical indicators. 📍Key points about volume Here are the key points regarding the volume indicator commonly plotted on the X-axis in trading: 🔹Volume Indicator: The volume indicator calculates the total number of shares or contracts traded during a specified time period. It is usually displayed as a histogram or line chart, with time represented on the X-axis. 🔹Liquidity: Volume is a critical metric as it provides insights into the liquidity of a security. Higher volume generally indicates greater market participation and liquidity, making it easier to buy or sell the asset without significantly impacting its price. 🔹Confirmation: Volume can validate the authenticity of price movements. In an uptrend, increasing volume supports the bullish move, indicating strength and conviction among buyers. Conversely, declining volume during an uptrend may signal weakness or lack of interest. The same principles apply to downtrends. 🔹Breakouts and Reversals: Volume analysis is often employed to identify breakouts and potential trend reversals. A significant increase in volume during a breakout suggests a higher probability of a sustained move, while decreasing volume near a support or resistance level might indicate a potential reversal. 🔹Divergence: Volume can unveil discrepancies between price and market sentiment. For instance, if prices are rising while volume is decreasing, it could suggest that the rally is losing momentum and a reversal may be imminent. Similarly, increasing volume during a price decline might indicate selling pressure and the potential for further downside. 🔹Confirmation of Patterns: Volume can serve to confirm or invalidate chart patterns such as triangles, head and shoulders, or double tops/bottoms. Higher volume during pattern formations enhances their reliability, while low volume can cast doubt on the significance of the pattern. 🔹Watch for High Volume: Unusual spikes in volume can indicate significant market events, such as earnings releases, news announcements, or institutional buying/selling. Abnormal volume levels can lead to increased volatility and potentially present trading opportunities. 🔹Relative Volume: Comparing current volume to historical average volume helps assess the significance of current trading activity. Higher volume relative to the average may imply increased interest, while lower volume might suggest a lack of conviction or reduced market participation.
