5 Earnings Plays That Could Squeeze the Shorts

Netflix may know something the rest of the world doesn't in terms of its second quarter, but if 100 million subscribers is in the cards for this weekend, it certainly looks like the SVOD will move ahead of its projections.

In a letter to shareholders to accompany its first quarter 2017 results, Netflix dismissed quarterly variances in customer sign-ups as "mostly noise" in the long-term growth and uptake of internet TV.

Netflix is on the verge of surpassing 100 million subscribers worldwide, which will be the testimonial of how much the video streaming service has shaped the entertainment landscape since its introduction a decade ago. In these years, Netflix has added 72 million more subscribers.

Additionally, House of Cards season five was pushed into the second quarter, while new seasons of the show were previously released during past first quarters. But we are also open to supporting the large theater chains, such as AMC and Regal in the USA, if they want to offer our films, such as our upcoming Will Smith film Bright, in theaters simultaneous to Netflix. Wetherby Asset Management Inc. now owns 5,979 shares of the Internet television network's stock worth $740,000 after buying an additional 32 shares during the last quarter.

The trend has confronted Netflix with more competition in the battle for household entertainment budgets.

In the wake of a series of genre-busting content and platform deals that have blurred the lines between broadcasters and subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) providers, Netflix flatly rejected the possibility of live sports programming on its platform.

For the quarter that ended March 31, Netflix reported earnings of 40 cents per share, beating analyst estimates and the company's own guidance. However Hastings is hopeful they have ways to catch up with YouTube.

Shares of Netflix (NFLX) were lower in on Tuesday, the day after the streaming company reported lighter-than-expected net subscriber additions for the 2017 first quarter and downbeat guidance for second quarter earnings. "The opportunity provided to us by the growth of the global internet is enormous and our plan is to keep investing as we increase membership, revenue and operating margins".

"Since the launch of The Ridiculous 6, Netflix members have spent more than half a billion hours enjoying the films of Adam Sandler", reads the earnings report.

Growth is a very important part of Netflix's business.
