Has Netflix Out-Binge-Watched Itself?

Over the long weekend, we did some research on what interesting series to watch, now that the days grow shorter. Our go-to is typically Netflix, having enjoyed so many series like Peaky Blinders, Stranger Things, Fauda, and way more. And yes, Ozark is back for a second season!

We learned from a friend of ours in the movie business that Netflix plans to invest $1 billion dollars more in creating original content. Clearly, Netflix has already made some huge bets on their already ginormous basket of content. This got us wondering.

It takes us a lot of burn time scrolling through the scores of original content offerings.

In the last month, we started watching a few new series, but then stopped since they were not nearly at Peaky Blinder’s level. We even checked the “Best New Netflix Shows and Movies to Watch During September 2018”.

Besides American Horror Story: Cult, which interests us because they brought back Jessica Lange, we didn’t see much. The movie releases are old. The series are eh.

So, as traders that like to use our consumer instinct, we checked out the chart. Lo and behold, the world’s 10th-largest internet company by revenue, may be starting its own horror story series. Starting with the double top it made in June and July, that neckline broke and gave patient short sellers a more-than-perfectly measured move lower.

Since then, on August 20th, it peaked lower and reversed. Using about a 10% move as a target on reversals, once again, Netflix gave patient bulls a more-than-perfectly measured move higher. The current rally has taken the price right into the neckline resistance at around 378-380. Note the 50-day moving average in blue.

Today, the price broke below it for an unconfirmed warning phase. That means it needs a second close beneath 366 to confirm.

Furthermore, the slope on the 50 daily moving average is negative. That means the warning phase could escalate to the downside. Thinking again as a consumer, I will not unsubscribe from Netflix. Nor, will millions of others I imagine. In fact, Netflix is showing up in more countries globally.

Ozark! Yes, thanks for letting me know it's back. It's a great show and a good example that Netflix is still producing great content. And I think the content they produce is better than anything Amazon or Hulu is putting out there.

Into episode 2 of Ozark-good so far-and the technical precede the fundamentals-today is fell by over $21.00 before the soft bounce. Thanks for reading my commentary!

Just because you are watching Netflix's best original content faster than the can create it, doesn't mean the quality is decreasing. On the contrary, it means it's so good, you can't stop watching.

Thanks for commenting and reading my post-today the stock took a bath-so the technicals have preceded the fundamentals-as they typically do.

I agree. Also would be nice if you could make the chart a tad bigger for my old eyes.

The chart is sized by talkmarkets-I will see if they can enlarge them next time I post one. Thanks so much for reading my commentary!
