Netflix, Inc (NFLX)
Shares fell 1.3% on Wednesday to $ 485.81 on 3 million trades. The company has been falling for several weeks and is now down 10% in a year. Netflix is currently trading at 47x its forward profit.
Netflix has likely been down for a few weeks after hitting all-time highs in 2021. And this week, stocks are trending higher for a couple of related reasons.
The first has to do with Netflix’s investor relations. In short, Netflix has a self-proclaimed unconventional governance structure that in part includes an overwhelming majority of votes in the election of board members. The company claims this allows Netflix to remain forward-thinking in a dynamic business environment.
Additionally, Netflix has a bad history of enforcing non-binding shareholder resolutions – consultancy Institutional Shareholder Services notes that since 2012, most of the 20 shareholder-backed resolutions have not been enforced.
Expressing dissatisfaction with the arrangement, 81% of shareholders present voted last week to reject two board members. This came after shareholders, for the fifth time since 2013, tried to change the super majority requirement, but to no avail.
The second reason is more positive: after years of relying solely on dwindling new subscribers to generate revenue, Netflix is launching an online store for branded goods. Netflix.shop is still small in both offerings and reach, but retail operations are planning to expand throughout 2021 to help the streaming giant compete with competitors’ external revenue streams. The current and future lineup will include items from shows such as Lupine, Yasuke, Bridgerton, The Witcher, as well as Very strange things…
Netflix’s revenue grew 5.6% last fiscal year to nearly $ 25 billion, up from $ 15.8 billion three years ago. During the same period, operating income jumped nearly 22% to $ 4.585 billion, surpassing the $ 1.6 billion operating income generated three years ago. That said, earnings per share jumped nearly 36% to $ 6.08, up from $ 2.68 three years ago.
Overall, Netflix’s revenue is expected to grow by about 3.33% over the next twelve months. Our AI ranks the streaming giant A for growth, B for low volatility and quality value, and D for technical characteristics.
Moderna, Inc (MRNA)
The stock jumped 2% on Wednesday to $ 217.44 amid 8 million shares traded by leaps and bounds, up from a 22-day average of $ 176.73. The stock is currently trading more than 108% on the year with a 12-month forward profit of 7.85x.
Moderna is trending this week after filing an emergency application for covid-19 vaccine in adolescents with the US FDA, Health Canada and the European Medicines Agency. This comes after the company reported in May that a trial involving nearly 2,500 participants aged 12 to 17 showed that efficacy was increased to 100% using the same case definition as in phase III trials for adults. The company also plans to apply to other regulatory bodies around the world in the coming weeks.
Moderna has posted an impressive 1,923% growth from $ 135 million to over $ 803 million in the last three fiscal years. During the same period, operating income nearly doubled from $ 413 million to $ 763 million. Return on equity also rose to nearly 40%, up from 35.7% in 26 months ago. However, earnings per share for the same period fell significantly from $ 4.95 to $ 1.96.
Moderna’s revenues are currently expected to grow by about 25% over the next 12 months. But thanks to the company’s sudden growth and growing popularity, which is at least partly due to its role in developing one of three FDA-approved coronavirus vaccines, our AI is skeptical about the company’s future and has judged Moderna B for quality. D – technical characteristics and impulse of low volatility and F – growth.
