BTIG raised Buy rated Netflix's price target to $950 from $600 citing business model momentum. The firm's analyst believes Netflix can grow substantially beyond 50M domestic subs. In addition, as the MVPD bundle unravels, BTIG expects consumers will have money to spend on Netflix and other SVOD services. As the price/value of Netflix grows, the firm believes there is substantial upside potential to its ARPU estimates. BTIG expects Worldwide streaming subs to expand to over 108M by 2017, up from 101M, compared to 57M at year-end 2014. Furthermore, BTIG believes Netflix could reach 140M global subscribers by 2020.
