Netflix Beats Expectations, Posts Record Growth

Netflix

Netflix is going from strength to strength based on its numbers from the last quarter of 2017. The company recently released the figures which include 8.3 million fresh subscribers to the platform with 2 million of these coming from the US.

Their shares were already inching up even before the announcement with an all-time high of $227.38 on Monday. Then the news came that the Wall Street estimates were beaten by a mile for both US and international subscribers which were set at just 1.28 million and 5.02 million, respectively. The impressive figures further boosted the price by over 9%.

This growth in subscribers also translated into an increase in revenues. The Q4 earnings per share was 41 cents while the revenue was $3.29 billion. There were doubts due to the price increases rolled out during the quarter including a bump from $9.99 to $10.99 a month in the US. It seems that customers were not discouraged. There was a 25% rise in paid streaming memberships and a 35% rise in revenues.

Do Netflix Results Reflect Future Expectations?

Netflix has been on a good run backed up by growth in consumer subscription. Netflix Results show the number of subscribers keeps growing by the day surpassing even the entities own expectations.

New subscribers

The firm today confirmed that it now has over 5 million new subscribers. The bulk of the subscription comes from the international market, with 850,000 coming from the U.S alone.The reason for the drive has primarily been due to the rise in spending in a bid to create original content. This move looks to be paying off big time.

Slow U.S growth

However, it is not going to be a bed of roses for the company. There is an expectation that US subscription will be lower than it was the same time last year. The recent hiking of viewership fees is the likely cause for the lag in U.S. The bone of contention is finding a way to push market value in the midst of burgeoning production costs.
