NFLX Stock Price Falls Despite Subscriber Growth

FXOpen

Yesterday, after the close of the main trading session on the stock market, Netflix reported to investors for the 1st quarter of 2024.

The report turned out better than expected:
→ earnings per share: actual = USD 5.28, forecast = USD 4.52;
→ gross income: actual = USD 9.40 billion, forecast = USD 9.27.
→ The number of subscribers increased by 9.3 million (expected +4.8 million).

However, NFLX's pre-market share price today is hovering around USD 580, about 6% below yesterday's closing price.

Negativity manifested itself in:
→ disappointing forecasts for the 2nd quarter;
→ investors also did not like the decision to stop providing quarterly reports on changes in the number of subscribers next year.

If NFLX stock opens today around the USD 580 level, then it would indicate that the market has moved down to the lower boundary of the parallel channel (shown in blue).

According to the technical analysis of NFLX stock:
→ a bearish gap may form on the chart, which is usually assessed as an obstacle to price growth;
→ the psychological level of USD 600 per NFLX share may act as resistance;
→ rounding pattern (shown by a red arc) – a sign of depletion of demand.

Even if the NFLX stock price forms a bounce from the lower boundary of the channel, bulls will have to contend with the technical hurdles outlined above. And also negative fundamental factors associated with the fact that the Fed will hold interest rates for a longer time.

According to the average consensus of analysts surveyed by TipRanks, the projected 12-month stock price for NFLX stock is USD 637.29.
