FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett says that while Netflix (NFLX) is not rated by Nielsen (NLSN), the 10B hours streamed in Q1 reported by the company are equivalent to having a 24-hour rating of 2.6, on par with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. And while ratings at broadcasters are falling on average, Netflix is growing its ratings at a 40%-plus compound annual rate, Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note. At this pace, Netflix in a year will have a larger 24-hour audience than all broadcast networks, he contends. Regarding last night's 7-for-1 stock split announcement, Crockett says the move reflects management's confidence in the "durability of the recent stock surge." For perspective, three years ago Netflix shares were around $60. This morning they are trading up $18.69 to $699.88 in the pre-market. Crockett has an Outperform rating on the streaming service with a $900 price target.
