One huge development of the technology revolution has been the rise of Netflix. The American streaming firm, which originally started in the late 90s as a DVD delivery company, is one of the biggest players in the media industry now. Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has almost thirteen thousand employees and a whopping 231 million paid members in almost two hundred countries, making it a beast in the media delivery industry.

Over the years, Netflix has transformed itself from a firm that primarily hosted content from other producers to making its own movies, television shows, and documentaries. These are often known for their unique approach to production, and significant viewership despite having low production budgets. In fact, Netflix’s first television series, House of Cards which was produced by an external studio for Netflix, has become one of the most famous television shows in human history. The television series, which ended in 2018, is one of the highest rated television shows on the popular online repository, the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) with a strong rating of 8.7. This score is determined after more than half a million IMDB users rated the television show, with the majority or close to 330,000 users giving the show a score of nine points or higher. House of Cards ranks at 110 in IMDB’s list of most popular television shows ranked by the number of ratings.

Taking a look at the market in which Netflix is playing in, it appears that the best might be ahead for the company. For instance, a research report from Precedence Research outlines that the global video streaming market was worth $375 billion in 2021. It adds that the industry will grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.5% between 2021 and 2030 to sit at an estimated, and whopping, $1.7 trillion by the end of the forecast period. The research firm believes that the growth in the sales of smartphones as well as the rise in Internet usage will provide users with easily accessible content available instantaneously and in the palm of their hand. Precedence Research also shares data from the Motion Picture Association to outline that online video on demand (VoD) users grew to 1.1 billion during the coronavirus pandemic and will almost double to 2 billion by the end of this year.

Zooming in on Netflix’s latest financial performance, the firm’s latest financial results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2022 provided a mixed bag of results. Starting from its revenue and earnings per share, Netflix posted $7.85 billion in revenue and 12 cents in earnings per share. This saw the firm meet analyst estimates for revenue but it missed the 75 cents that analysts were expecting. However, at the same time, Netflix’s biggest victory came in the form of the number of subscribers that it added in Q4 2022, with the 7.66 million new additions vastly surpassing the analyst consensus estimates of 4.57 million. At the same time, its earnings per share miss were not due to any operational deficiencies in the firm’s operations but came due to losses on Euro denominated debt.

After its earnings report, Wall Street weighed in on the results, with the opinion being nothing else than optimistic. Analysts from Morgan Stanley, Piper Sandler, Jefferies, Evercore ISI, Wolfe Research, JPMorgan, Barclays, Baird, Benchmark, Credit Suisse, Cowen, Canaccord, and Guggenheim all raising Netflix’s share price target. Starting from them in respective orders, the share price targets were raised from $300 to $350, $270 to $325, $385 to $400, $340 to 400, $366 to $417, $330 to $390, $275 to $325, $235 to $250, $225 to $250, $271 to $291, $405 to $440, $365 to $400, and $305 to $375. Currently, the average consensus share price target for the firm is $357, for a small upside over the current share price. Additionally, the average share price rating for Netflix’s shares is Buy.

The latest bit of news surrounding the firm is its announcement that it will reduce prices by 50% in small markets that represent roughly 6% of its subscribers. This decision won approval from Citi, who in March 2023 increased Netflix’s share price target to $400 from $395, as the research firm believes that the decision has the potential to boost Netflix’s revenues by 1% since these are linked by efforts by the firm to cut down on account password sharing. JPMorgan built on the firm’s anti password sharing efforts in March 2023 as well, as it believes that there was a “considerable pushback” against these efforts in markets where it was implemented and these can potentially harm the firm’s efforts to add new subscribers to its platform. However, the investment bank also believes that despite the pushback, Netflix will continue on these efforts. At the same time, Netflix has also introduced a new ad supported tier, and this is performing well, with data from Bloomberg showing that after its first month of rollout, the platform grew by 500%.

Netflix’s founder and former chief executive officer Mr. Reed Hastings who stepped down in January commented on its growth over the past decades and shared:

Jessica, it feels like yesterday was our IPO. We were covered in red envelopes, we IPO-ed at about $1. Hopefully, some of you have held the stock, the full 21 years. And when I think of the evolution, the three of us and so many other incredible Netflix employees to go from DVD service to streaming leader in films and television and emerging player in games and now to have over 230 million members, it’s just €“ well, Jim Collins probably said it best. He calls it a good start. We’ve had a good start. But honestly, we dream of the whole world finding their favorite entertainment on Netflix and we shorthand that as entertaining the world. And the three of us have been working together for 15 years now trying to figure out how do we get through this issue, that issue, how do we grow.

With these details in mind, let’s take a look at some top movies on Netflix in 2023.
