Trouble As Netflix Down By Almost 70%

The once-favored company of Wall Street, Netflix, is now in trouble.

It’s expected to be one of the most important days in the company’s 25-year existence when the streaming juggernaut releases its second-quarter earnings on Tuesday.

The year has been bad for Netflix. The business announced in April that it had seen a loss of subscribers in the first quarter of 2022, the first time this has occurred in any quarter in more than ten years. In the aftermath, Netflix’s stock crashed and burned (it’s presently down almost 70% so far this year), wiping out billions of dollars in market value and forcing the firm to fire hundreds of workers.

The world of Netflix was turned upside down like the kids in “Stranger Things” due to several issues, not only the loss of members. Investors were stunned by Netflix’s (NFLX) dismal projection for the second quarter, which anticipated it would lose an additional $200,000 in the spring.

Whatever transpires on Tuesday has the potential to drastically alter both the company’s and the streaming industry’s future. Netflix is affected by streaming.

According to Andrew Hare, senior vice president of research at Magid, “there will be hell to pay if they announce a number that is considerably larger than the 2 million loss being bandied around.”

Hare stated that the streaming market had reached maturity and saturation. Investors will therefore be asking, “What comes next, and where does the growth come from?”

Netflix is putting its faith in advertising as a potential salvation.

The business revealed on Wednesday that it will collaborate with Microsoft on a new, less expensive subscription plan that is ad-supported. Although Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has been hostile to the concept for years, advertising is now a significant element of Netflix’s ambitions to increase revenue in the future. Before the end of 2022, a new tier is apparently coming, although Netflix acknowledges that its fledgling ad business is still in its “very early days.”

In order to change the tide, the corporation is also concentrating on cracking down on password sharing and developing engaging content.

However, will any of that matter if Tuesday’s results are so dismal that Wall Street completely rejects Netflix?

All bets are off once Netflix is severely discounted by the market, according to Hare.

However, the streamer does have a few things going for it.

First off, Netflix continues to lead the streaming market with 221.6 million customers globally. Additionally, it is providing data in a market where there are elements outside of Netflix’s control, such as rapidly rising inflation. Therefore, it has those justifications at its disposal to conceivably lessen the hit with investors.

Investors will allow them time to right the ship, but Hare insisted that they need to hear more convincing proposals for the way to quick growth. “To ensure they continue to dominate the streaming market, they must clearly communicate how their business is evolving. Nobody could stand watching their company lose millions of members every quarter.”
