10:57 EDTNFLXT-Mobile promotion gives Netflix analyst greater confidence
UBS raised its price target on Netflix (NFLX) to $143 from $116, saying that its confidence in the company's outlook has improved following a promotion undertaken by T-Mobile (TMUS). WHAT'S NEW: T-Mobile recently began offering one free year of Netflix to consumers who switch to its wireless service, UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson wrote in a note to investors today. Mitchelson said that the promotion increases his confidence in the outlook for Netflix's U.S. business. Moreover, he believes that Netflix could "become a standard promotional tool" for wired and wireless broadband providers going forward. Although Netflix's stock "looks very expensive" in the near-term, the company's long-term opportunity is "extraordinary," given the potential size of the global streaming market, the analyst stated. Mitchelson's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. He raised his price target on the name to $143 from $116 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On August 10, research firm Stifel raised its price target on Netflix to $143 from $128, saying that the company's U.S. subscriber base can reach 80M by 2024, above the midpoint of its guidance. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Netflix fell 1% to $122.

"While the momentum in our financial results is encouraging, we have much more to accomplish. Looking ahead, we are focused on making further progress against our strategic priorities and are committed to improving operations as we move through the important back-to-school, back-to-college and holiday seasons." Says comparable sales in signature categories -- Style, Baby, Kids and Wellness -- grew three times faster than the company average, resulting in comparable sales growth of four to five percent in both Home and Apparel.

06:01 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $143 from $116 at UBS
UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson raised his price target for Netflix (NFLX) shares to $143 after increasing his longer term revenue assumptions. The streaming service closed yesterday down $1.31 to $124.05. Mitchelson upped his 2020-2026 revenue estimates to reflect his belief that Netflix will successfully monetize its streaming platform beyond just monthly subscription fees, such as bundling and promoting third party services. He has increased confidence in the company's U.S. growth outlook after T-Mobile (TMUS) just launched a promotion for its wireless service that included one free year of Netflix. As competition among broadband providers intensifies, Netflix's inexpensive monthly streaming service could become one of the standard promotional tools, Mitchelson tells investors in a research note. The analyst's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. Mitchelson keeps a Buy rating on Netflix.
