The Sell-Side Sentiment On Netflix Over The Last Month

Netflix, Inc. NASDAQ:NFLX - The Sell-Side Sentiment On Netflix Over The Last Month

On July 18, Netflix, Inc. NFLX 2.38% reported its EPS for the second quarter exceeding the estimates. However, revenue and outlook fell shy of the expectations triggering a sell-off in the following day. The stock dropped 13.13 percent on July 19.

Following the results and outlook, most of the brokerages preferred to reiterate their rating on the stock and no one was ready to upgrade at least in the last more than two-month period. Therefore, when William Blair upgraded the shares of Netflix from Market Perform to an Outperform rating, investors were ready to venture into the stock thus boosting its price on Thursday.
