Guru Investment Theses on Netflix Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Netflix Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

Shares of on-demand video service Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) were up during the second quarter based on another quarter of stronger-than-expected first quarter subscriber additions and a robust outlook for the second quarter of 2015. Because of the success of its original content (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, etc.) across all of its markets and the solid growth experienced with its slate of international launches, the company has decided to accelerate its international expansion plans with the goal of achieving near global coverage by the end of 2016. In addition, the company is continuing to invest aggressively in original content. We believe Netflix will become the global leader in on-demand, Internet-delivered television, ultimately reaching 75-90 million U.S. subscribers and well over 100 million subscribers overseas. (Ashim Mehra)
