Elements to consider before selling or buying Netflix shares

Analysis N°1

Concerning Netflix’s opportunities in the coming years, you should of course take into account the huge market that the video on demand represents with an increasingly large consumption of videos online thanks to a change in the way society approaches television and video content.

Analysis N°2

Netflix could also benefit from an expansion of its services on the Chinese market. But in order to do this, the group must first solve some problems concerning the license of its content by creating a joint venture that enables it to take advantage of the 500 million Chinese members who currently transmit in the country.

Analysis N°3

Netflix could also benefit from the current growth of technology and RV and 4K UHD content to provide new services to its users.

Analysis N°4

Of course, in order to achieve its objectives of development, Netflix will also have to face some challenges and constraints, including important competition that offers more varied content and ways of viewing this different content such as Amazon Prime or Hulu Plus.

Analysis N°5

In fact, about this last point, we know that for 30 content providers such as Netflix, hacking generates more than 5.4 billion of multimedia content downloads each year. Just like its competitors, Netflix also sees its business directly threatened by the new methods of illegal downloading. It is even possible that this could pose a problem for Netflix concerning the financing of future content.

Positive factors for Netflix shares
The factors in favour of a rise in the Netflix share price:

Before beginning to invest on Netflix shares, it is necessary to know the advantages of this company first and thus the possibilities of an upward evolution of this asset. Here is a summary of the advantages of this company in the years to come.

First, Netflix offers its services at a rather affordable price which enables it to reach a wide range of public. The video on demand platform offers subscriptions for under €10 for the simple membership and up to €12 euros for a premium one.

In addition, Netflix has the advantage of offering a wide range of content with several original series which have built its success and are done every year including Marvel, House of Cards, Sense 8, Stranger Things which have a very strong popularity and optimal communication. In order to guarantee better quality content, Netflix has in fact been able to set up numerous and varied strategic partnerships, particularly with Disney, Lucasfilm and Pixar studios. Netflix original content is in fact a real advantage of this platform when compared to its competitors. In the past and very recently, some original content has increased the number of subscribers to the platform thanks to the significant success that they have encountered.

It must be said that Netflix has put in place all the technological tools necessary to anticipate the needs and desires of the public and thus detect before the others the content that its likely to be successful. This strategy includes the implementation of certain algorithms in charge of automatically studying the habitudes of consumption of its subscribers enabling the platform to propose them movies and series that correspond to their preferences.

Netflix has become a brand with a very strong reputation over time. In fact, Netflix has become the only brand name for online streaming content and has experienced an increase of more than 6000 % in its price, since 2007, in less than 10 years.

Finally, the large international clientele of the platform is the last major advantage of this company. The company offers its content in more than 190 different countries and counts with more than 100 million subscribers around the world. Thanks to this feat, Netflix has a very strong bargaining power among studios, which has allowed it to easily obtain the rights of some very promising original content.

Negative factors for Netflix shares
The factors in favour of a drop in the Netflix share price:

Of course, Netflix does not only have advantages for investors and it is necessary to be cautious before starting to buy or sell this asset on the stock market and learn all the disadvantages of Netflix and the elements that could affect its profitability.

Of course, the first disadvantage of this company concerns the increasingly strong competition around the world, specially in Europe since the American giant is already struggling to position itself in the market. Netflix is in fact only being tried in European countries which are not very familiar with this new way of online consumption and must still build its reputation by reassuring consumers about this new mode of watching paid content.

Another obstacle to the development of Netflix is the cost of the original content offered by the platform. In fact, and even if this content is the basis of Netflix’s reputation and represents therefore one of the company’s advantages, the expenses required to acquire this content is becoming higher and higher. In 2017 alone, Netflix invested more than 2.5 billion dollars only in securing original titles, an expense that is difficult to monetize when the content does not meet the expected success.

It should also be noticed that the company has no rights to the original content. In fact, Netflix does not directly own most of the programs that it offers, unlike traditional television studios. Netflix thus holds the rights of the content it broadcasts for a period of one year without any guarantee that this original content will not be proposed later on to their competitors.

Finally, Netflix has recently suffered a loss of notoriety after being categorized in class D in terms of environmental awareness. This has aroused strong reactions among environmentalists and a bad publicity for the company. It is important to notice that Netflix’s main competitors, Amazon and Facebook use more than 40% of renewable energy for its services.
