14:54 EDTNFLXCiti ups Netflix target on international potential as company eyes China
Citigroup raised its price target for Netflix (NFLX) to $722 and maintained a Buy rating on the stock, citing the company's underappreciated international expansion and declining churn trends. WHAT'S NEW: In a research note, Citigroup analyst Mark May raised his price target on Netflix to $722 from $584, saying that despite the stock's 31% jump since reporting first quarter earnings on April 15, Netflix shares still have room to advance as the company extends its service globally. May believes the U.S. only accounts for 18% of Netflix's total addressable market based on broadband household metrics. Additionally, he thinks subscribership should trend positively as original content grows and churn declines, resulting in a potential 20% U.S. streaming revenue growth in 2016. The firm stated that Netflix's financial model should generate similar operating profits from "most" of the markets it chooses to enter, and that non-English speaking Netflix markets are being significantly undervalued when taking into account their size. Based on Citi's analysis, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand have a $25 implied enterprise value per broadband household, which, at roughly 10% of the U.S. metric, implies "very conservative" assumptions. Citi highlighted that Netflix's current stock price does not account for any additional value from further international launches, which could include Spain, Italy, Portugal, China, Russia, and India. The firm also remains optimistic on subscriber numbers for coming quarters, saying both churn and content offerings are improving at the company. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On May 14, Bloomberg reported that Netflix has held talks with several Chinese media companies, including Wasu Media, backed by Alibaba (BABA) chairman Jack Ma. In response to the report, a Netflix spokesperson remarked that the company plans to be "nearly global" by the end of 2016. PRICE ACTION: Netflix is trading near flat on the day to $622.47.

11:38 EDTNFLXNetflix has a small potential bullish pattern developing
On the daily chart there is a small potential bullish flag developing. The pattern won't become active unless there is a breakout above $585. The time until the pattern expires is likely by end of day tomorrow, meaning it could fail by time or price. If the pattern becomes active and completes, upside potential would be to the $625 to $630 area. A breakdown below the low of the flag portion of the pattern at $575 or lower would void the pattern.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos believes that as over-the-top TV services gain momentum, traditional cable and satellite TV is going to become "more about events, and more about award shows and live sports," reports Business Insider, citing remarks at a New York media conference. "Where the attribute really is the liveness of it, television is fantastic. And I think the real saving grace for television is they’ll focus on the other things and make it more event-oriented," said Sarandos. Reference Link
