Netflix remains a core holding at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Justin Patterson said his research suggests US churn peaked in Q2 and he remains comfortable with his 300k US net adds for Q3. Further, Patterson said early International cohorts generate greater than 20% contribution margin and said EBITDA and earnings upside is likely in 2017 and beyond. The analyst recommends owning shares for a profit inflection as investments peaked in 2016 and reiterates his Outperform rating and $120 price target.

Netflix app download showing maturity in U.S., picking up in Europe, says UBS
UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson said the firm's Evidence Lab shows Netflix app download data as reflecting maturity in the U.S. and Canada but picking up in Europe. The analyst said his confidence in 10M subscriber addition estimates is increased but he is not prepared to increase his estimates. Mitchelson does not expect Q3 results and Q4 guidance to resolve the bull/bear debate and continues to expect the shares to trade in a range. Mitchelson reiterated his Neutral rating on Netflix shares.

Morgan Stanley sees 'un-grandfathering' peaking for Netflix in Q3
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne believes the market expects Netflix (NFLX) to report Q3 domestic net subscriber additions that fall short of the company's 300K forecast. However, he thinks the impact of "un-grandfathering" will peak in Q3 and that the percentage of U.S. members seeing price increases will begin to fade in Q4. While acknowledging that Amazon (AMZN) continues to grow as a competitor for content and time spent, Swinburne notes that local and regional players in many markets continue to struggle. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating and $110 price target on Netflix shares.
