Netflix price target lowered to $430 form $470 at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry lowered his price target for Netflix to $430 from $470 ahead of Q3 results to reflect the contraction in broader internet multiples. While 3rd party data has most investors anticipating net subscriber additions beyond management's July guidance, the analyst believes that has been balanced by expectations for more conservative Q4 guidance. Terry thinks upside to consensus expectations and what the strength in subscriber net additions says about Netflix's business, beyond just guidance for the next quarter, is likely to be a positive catalyst for the stock. Longer term, he continues to believe consensus forecasts significantly underestimate Netflix's future growth given its content, distribution and data advantages, the early stage growth opportunities left in most of its markets, and 2019's cash burn inflection. He reiterates a Buy rating on the shares.
