Netflix loses $19 billion in market value, cites weak subscriber growth

Published

on

Loading...

Netflix stock fell by 8 per cent on Friday, recording a loss of $19 billion for the video-streaming giant’s market capitalization. The revenues fell despite subscriber growth predictions in the quarter.

According to the company, the decline is due to the struggling subscriber growth projected by the company in the second quarter.

The company’s earnings per share (EPS) were $1.59 which was less the projected figure of $1.81. It also posted revenue earnings of  $6.15 billion higher than the projected $6.08 billion, according to Refinitiv. Also recording Global paid net subscriber additions of 10.09 million.

In Q1, Netflix’s revenues grew by 25 per cent. Netflix reported $1.57 Earnings Per Share (EPS) $5.77 billion in revenue and 15.77 million global paid net subscriber additions. The revenues in Q2 were average considering the surge in subscribers.

Its EPS figure was also below the projected $1.81 a $0.24 rise from the Q1 figure which was reported at $1.57. The earnings release also dropped because Netflix had expected to add only 2.5 million subscribers this quarter, or less than half of what Wall Street expected.

Going forward in 2020, the company does not project its slate of content to be significantly impacted by production shutdowns created by the pandemic. It expects that current production setbacks will push more of its big titles to the end of 2021, but that the “total number of originals for the full year will still be higher than 2020.” Netflix plans to supplement its original content with other films and shows it’s acquired.

The company also slashed its marketing costs by 28 per cent and spent less on content production as television and movie sets were shut down. The upshot was a 92 per cent increase in the operating income and a 163 per cent rise in earnings per share, to $1.63.

Netflix co-CEOs Reed Hastings and Ted Sarandos also said in a letter to shareholders that they anticipated a year-on-year slowdown because the pandemic pulled forward demand and new seasons of “Stranger Things” and “Money Heist” that had inflated subscriber growth in the third quarter of 2019.

So far, it has resumed some production in Europe as well as two stop-motion animation projects in Oregon and two films in California. But the company still warns that current infection trends create more uncertainty for the productions in the US.

Adding that it’s made the most progress resuming production in the Asia Pacific and never fully shut down in Korea.

“Parts of the world like India and some of Latin America are also more challenging and we are hoping to restart later in the year in these regions.” the company said.

Netflix provided third-quarter revenue guidance of $6.33 billion. It expects third-quarter earnings of $2.09 per share, above analyst estimates of $2.01. The company also expects 2.5 million net subscriber additions for the third quarter, while analysts were expecting 5.27 million.

Published

on

Loading...

Cooking can sometimes be a real pain. This is especially true when you are new to the entire process and coming home from a long day of work. This is not to even mention the fact that it can be time-consuming and expensive. Preparing the ingredients, putting them in the pots, measuring them out, and the rest of the prep work is just half the battle. You also have to consider the trip to the store to get the ingredients. There is no denying that the entire process can be overwhelming, especially for beginners. However, it doesn’t always have to be this way when you take advantage of the right dishes and guides. There are some dishes and guides that’ll make the process easier while teaching you the basics at the same time.

One-Pot Turkey Chili

This is a delectable dish that will teach you how to use the spices that you already have to ramp up the flavor. This is an invaluable skill that you’ll use over and over again as a cook. When all said and done, you’ll have a hearty, flavorful chili packed with tons of nutritious protein and fiber thanks to the ground turkey and the kidney beans. These are the two essentials, but you can customize the rest of the dish with your favorite toppings. All you have to do is chop the veggies, brown the meat, add your spices, and then let everything simmer. Everything literally cooks right in the same pot and the only other tools you need are a knife, stirring spoon, and can opener.

Lighter Alfredo Pasta

Who doesn’t love Alfredo pasta? How about a lighter, healthier version? That’s exactly what you’ll get when you take advantage of this pan sauce. Sauces are the heart of most pasta dishes and learning to make those sauces will take your cooking game to the next level. This recipe will utilize a Parmesan-based sauce with a bit of chicken broth and fresh greens. The real key here is the perfectly sauteed, golden-brown mushrooms. They are not only budget-friendly, but they are an excellent way to add depth to your entire dish with the cost of additional meat.

Two main ingredients that go well with a variety of flavors, so you’ll literally have plenty of room to experiment if you choose to do so.

Super Tender, Spicy Pork

And, what’s so great about this dish is that it will not only teach you how to make super, soft pork, but it’ll make you a more versatile cook. This pork can be used to make tacos, you can stuff it in pitas, you can pile it over nachos, or you can eat it between two pieces of bread.

Sweet Potato Frittata

Speaking of versatility, there is nothing more versatile than making breakfast for dinner. You’ll be able to do just that when you learn to make sweet potato frittata. It’s a simple but complex one-pan egg dish that’s hearty enough to eat for dinner, but perfect for breakfast.
