The successful prediction of Netflix stock price could yield a significant profit to investors. But is it possible? The efficient-market hypothesis suggests that all published stock prices of traded companies, such as Netflix, already reflect all publicly available information. This academic statement is a fundamental principle of many financial and investing theories used today. However, the typical investor usually disagrees with a 'textbook' version of this hypothesis and continually tries to find mispriced stocks to increase returns. We use internally-developed statistical techniques to arrive at the intrinsic value of Netflix based on Netflix hews, social hype, general headline patterns, and widely used predictive technical indicators.
We also calculate exposure to Netflix's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to Netflix's related companies.

Our take on today Netflix rise

Netflix current standard deviation rises over 5.77. Netflix exhibits very low volatility with skewness of -3.21 and kurtosis of 18.74. However, we advise investors to further study Netflix technical indicators to make sure all market info is available and is reliable. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Netflix's stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Netflix's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

Netflix Implied Volatility

Netflix's implied volatility exposes the market's sentiment of Netflix stock's possible movements over time. However, it does not forecast the overall direction of its price. In a nutshell, if Netflix's implied volatility is high, the market thinks the stock has potential for high price swings in either direction. On the other hand, the low implied volatility suggests that Netflix stock will not fluctuate a lot when Netflix's options are near their expiration.

Our Bottom Line On Netflix

While some companies in the entertainment industry are either recovering or due for a correction, Netflix may not be as strong as the others in terms of longer-term growth potentials. With a somewhat neutral outlook on your 90 days horizon, it may be better to hold off any trading activity and neither pick up new shares of Netflix nor sell your existing holdings in the Stock. It seems the expected volatility has not yet been fully factored into the current price. Please use our equity advice module to run different scenarios to ensure your current risk level and investment horizon are fully reflective of your current investing preferences in regards to Netflix.
