  3. 3. Netflix: Proving the Naysayers Wrong Why NFLX could be a $2,000 stock Bears Say… NFLX is a niche service facing significant competition Already one of the world’s largest media subscription services, NFLX is watched 10-20x more than its closest competitors Content producers have all the leverage while NFLX is just a distributor ripe to be squeezed International growth will disappoint due to entrenched competition and differing media consumption habits NFLX is a great service, but its financial results will never justify its current price NFLX’s global scale and growing checkbook positions it as the buyer of choice for premium licensed and original content The desire to consume Hollywood content is universal, and strong adoption in its early international markets has given NFLX the confidence to accelerate its global rollout The company’s global subscription model along with eventual pricing power will translate into profitability well beyond consensus expectations Says… NFLX is an overvalued content distributor with too many competitors to meet lofty expectations NFLX is quickly becoming one of the most powerful media companies in the world
