06:06 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $487 from $360 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Netflix shares to $487 from $360 after analyzing the company's total addressable market and potential penetration through 2020. Olson has a "relatively more positive bias" on Netflix after his analysis suggested the company's earnings growth from 2016-2020 will average around 50%. He keeps a Neutral rating on Netflix, however, encouraging investors to take advantage of entry points closer to $400. Olson slightly reduced his 2016 earnings estimates for the company to reflect its continued investments ahead of a "material" earnings growth phase. UBS yesterday upgraded Netflix to Buy from Neutral with a $565 price target. Shares of the streaming service closed yesterday up $20.11 to $474.68.
