Netflix shares up on Q4 subscriber growth: time to buy?

Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX) is trading up in extended hours after the streaming giant said it added way more subscribers in its fourth quarter than expected.

Should you buy Netflix shares?

The on-demand media company added 7.7 million subscribers in its recently concluded quarter. In comparison, analysts had called for 4.58 million additions only.

Consequently, Michael Pachter (Wedbush analyst) recommended buying Netflix shares and said they had upside to $400 – more than a 25% gain from where the stock closed the regular session today. On CNBC’s “Power Lunch”, he said:

Fundamentally, there’s value here. They’re generating positive free cash flow. They’ve gotten religion on costs. They’re trimming production and staff costs and focusing on profitability. I think people will pay 25-30 times earnings for that.

Pachter is bullish on the recently launched ad-supported tier (find out more) and upcoming password sharing crackdown as well. According to Netflix, it will not issue guidance on subscriber number moving forward.

Notable figures in Netflix Q4 earnings report

Per-share earnings also slipped from $1.33 to 12 cents

Revenue climbed nearly 2.0% year-on-year to $7.85 billion

Also on Thursday, founder Reed Hastings said he’s stepping down as the chief executive but will remain with Netflix Inc as its executive chairman.

Greg Peters (Chief Product Officer) will assume his role and lead the company with Ted Sarandos moving forward, as per the letter to shareholders.
