Netflix: “Squid Game” gives tailwind – stock analysis (Raiffeisen Bank International AG)

Vienna (www.aktiencheck.de) – Netflix stock analysis from Raiffeisen Bank International AG:

In a current stock analysis, Andreas Schiller, an analyst at Raiffeisen Bank International AG, confirms the buy recommendation for Netflix shares (ISIN: US64110L1061, WKN 552484, ticker symbol: NFC, NASDAQ symbol: NFLX).

Netflix had a strong result in the third quarter of 2021. Not only were the expectations for the acquisition of new customers clearly exceeded, but also the profit development was clearly above the market consensus. The streaming giant owes this primarily to the newly published content, although the extremely successful series “Squid Game” was a real stroke of luck. Not only did the production costs of USD 21.4 million turn out to be quite manageable, Netflix itself put the value of the nine-part season at almost USD 900 million. In addition, the media attention not only attracted new customers, but Existing customers are also kept in mind which exclusive hits are on offer. However, this (exclusive) content dependency is not only a blessing, but also a curse at the same time, as the company will have to be measured by these successes in the future. In addition, previous content agreements would increasingly be dissolved due to intensifying competition and in the sense of marketed exclusivity (see “Star Trek” by Paramount + etc.) or at least drive up the licensing costs.

Even if the outlook for the year-on-year lower profitability in Q4 is unlikely to cause any joy, the outlook for the 8.5 million new customers in Q4 is at the previous year’s level and also signals that the content dry spell is likely to be over.

Andreas Schiller, analyst at Raiffeisen Bank International AG, sees further potential for the Netflix share in the future due to the continued very solid growth rates and the efforts of the management to round off the business model, which is why he is increasing his price target to USD 760 and at the same time his “buy” -Recommendation confirmed. The price target is based on a multiple approach, the numbers on consensus estimates and own estimates. (Analysis from November 17, 2021)
