Netflix got price target raise from Goldman Sachs analysts, who believe that the streaming behemoth’s second-quarter results will come in "well above guidance" .
Goldman Sachs analysts hiked their price target on Netflix shares from $540 to a Wall Street high $670. The analyst affirmed buy rating on the stock.
According to the Goldman analysts expectations, Netflix will report an addition of at least a net 12.5 million subscribers (vs. consensus estimates of 8.2 million) in the quarter. "While management is likely to guide the third quarter conservatively given the first-half outperformance and the massive uncertainty in the current environment, we believe consensus estimates for the second half and beyond remain too low," Goldman analyst Heath Terry wrote.
For the full year, Goldman projects Netflix to report paid subscriber net additions of 45.6 million (vs. the FactSet consensus estimate of 35.8 million).
