13:23 EDTTWXBattleground: Oppenheimer weighs in on Netflix with positive note
The recent weakness in Netflix's (NFLX) stock has created a buying opportunity, Oppenheimer wrote in a note to investors today. Oppenheimer's upbeat note comes after research firm Stifel issued a positive note on the stock yesterday and a third firm, Evercore ISI, downgraded the shares to sell on Monday. BULLISH TAKE: Noting that Netflix's stock has dropped 15% from its 52-week high, Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein said that the decline creates a good buying opportunity ahead a number of "tier 1" original show launches by the company. History indicates that tier 1 original shows have the most impact on the company's net subscriber additions, the analyst stated. Worries about competition have weighed on the shares, but Netflix can beat the competition by using its data to provide superior programming, according to the analyst. He kept a $483 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. Stifel analyst Scott Devitt yesterday stated that concerns about the company's competition are overdone, as Netflix's positioning in the U.S. is as strong as ever and continues to improve as it adds more content. Time Warner's (TWX) upcoming launch of a video on demand service called HBO Now is the primary cause of the decline in Netflix's stock, Devitt contended, noting he views the HBO Now launch as "a non-event" for Netflix. Most Netflix subscribers who obtain HBO Now will probably keep both services, Devitt believes. BEARISH TAKE: Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena on Monday downgraded Netflix shares to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to raise its investments, and the return from those investments is uncertain, the analyst contended. In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. Netflix's international expansion will not be sufficient to offset the increased competition, especially because foreign viewers are likely to watch less TV and be less interested in paying for TV content, the analyst believes, adding that Netflix will face even more competition overseas than in the U.S. Sela reduced his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Netflix was little changed near $418 per share.
