Nasdaq: Netflix shares jump as added subscribers top forecasts

Recommended Posts

Netflix shares jumped in extended trading yesterday to set a fresh nine-month high, despite posting a big miss on earnings, as investors reacted positively to better-than-expected subscriber additions.

Netflix earnings

It's been a volatile 24 hours for Netflix shares coming off the back of earnings that provided a little bit of something for everyone.

That's because the bears got something, where we saw essentially underperformance in terms of earnings, earnings per share (EPS) coming in at 12 cents per share versus 59 cents expected, while revenues were broadly in line at $7.85 billion.

However, we saw significant upside in the stock and that's because the focus was on subscriber numbers. They added 7.66 million subscribers in the fourth quarter (Q4) against Wall Street forecasts of 4.57 million. So significant outperformance.

CEO steps down

Another major thing to note is we did see the co-founder, Reed Hastings stepping down as chief executive, handing the reins to co-CEO Ted Sarandos and chief operating officer, Greg Peters.

But despite the games that we've seen yesterday, we've started to see things turn around a little bit here, notably on the weekly timeframe, rallied into this 76.4 Fibonacci at 34131. And then as we see here on the daily time frame, the opening of the all-sessions move for this market has seen it coming off somewhat.

So as things stand respecting that 76.4 Fibonacci level, so could we see a bit of a pullback as people start to focus away from those subscriber numbers and instead on the underperformance, on the earnings figures?

    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco      
    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
