One of the world’s largest subscription-based streaming services posted mixed Q2 2021 earnings
Netflix reported earnings that missed on the bottom line but with a slightly higher-than-expected revenue. According to data from Refinitv, the company reported an EPS of $2.97 vs $3.16 expected. At the same time, revenues came in at $7.34 billion, topping the $7.32 billion touted, adding 1.54 million paid net subscribers on a global level. The market was looking for 1.19 million additions but finished the quarter with over 209 million paid memberships.
For the third quarter, Netflix is looking for 3.5 million net adds, lower than the 5.46 million anticipated by analysts. The optimism comes from Netflix’s new slate of content, as much of it has been pushed back into the second half of 2021 and next year. Moreover, the company confirmed the rumors to push into the gaming space, adding it as a new content category. Potential games will be included on Netflix subscriptions at no additional cost.
Following the news, Netflix stock price was up almost 1%.
