Buy Netflix (NFLX) Stock for Long-Term and Stay-at-Home Growth?

Netflix NFLX doubled its own subscriber growth estimates in the first quarter, boosted by the initial shock of the early lockdown period, and followed that performance up with another big subscriber beat in Q2. The streaming TV firm has been at the forefront of the next wave in entertainment for years and now the coronavirus has seen Hollywood push back nearly all of its theatrical releases, which could benefit Netflix.

So let’s see what to expect from Netflix’s third quarter results that are due out on October 20, and try to help investors determine if it’s still time to buy NFLX for the long-haul…

The Only Game in Town

Netflix added 15.8 million paid users around the world in Q1 to crush its 7 million guidance that it provided before the coronavirus changed things dramatically. NFLX then pulled in over 10 million in the second quarter to blow away its

MPC to focus on growth, expectation on rate cut back on table

KOLKATA: Expectation of the Reserve Bank of India returning to the interest rate easing cycle sooner gained traction with it saying that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) would focus on economic revival when the transient spikes in inflation dissipate. The regulator projected that inflation would ease closer to the target by March next year.

Governor Shaktikanta Das said that the rise in prices is due to supply side shocks as the effect of lockdowns and restrictions in movements across the country.

“As supply chains are restored, these wedges should dissipate,” Das said in his policy statement. “The MPC has hence decided to look through the current inflation hump as transient and address the more urgent need to revive growth and mitigate the impact of COVID-19.”

This has provided the space for continuing with the accommodative stance with forward guidance as set out in the MPC’s resolution.

“We continue to expect

Bank credit growth slows again in July, but consumer credit is officially in contraction

Consumer debt is down sharply because consumers have been borrowing less and have been paying down lots of debt. Since March, consumers have been borrowing between $20 and $15 billion CAD each month, but they’ve been paying down between $20 and $25 billion CAD each month at the same time. In July, we see that consumer credit issuance is down over 11% from the same time last year, but credit destroyed (or paid down) is down only 8%.

We’re seeing a similar thing happen in the business credit market. Businesses are borrowing less and have substantially increased their debt repayments. In July, credit issuance was down over 5% from the same time last year, but credit destroyed up is over 20%! If this trend continues, the bank business credit market will be in contraction before the of the year. This will have profound implications for the labor market.

Pace of home-price growth is ‘unsustainable’ in many global cities, warns UBS

The view from a Brooklyn neighborhood on Tuesday. The UBS report gave a mixed picture for New York City real estate.

The coronavirus pandemic may have triggered the worst global downturn in more than 60 years, but home prices in the world’s biggest cities still have shot higher into the stratosphere.

Instead of a plunge, it’s been four quarters in a row of home-price growth for major cities, as governmental fiscal support and central banks’ monetary policies have kept the party going, according to a new UBS Global Wealth Management report.

As a result, it still would take 20 years for a highly skilled service worker to be able to buy a 650-square-foot apartment near Hong Kong’s city center, according to its findings.

In Paris, it would take about 17 years of work to buy a similarly sized property, while in New York City it runs closer to

Baltic sovereigns face growth and fiscal shock, but GDP contractions are set to be among smallest in eurozone – Emerging Europe

Weaker public finances and the shock to economic growth, together with their potential impact on medium-term growth and fiscal dynamics, are the main channels through which the coronavirus pandemic can affect the sovereign credit ratings of the Baltic States, Fitch Ratings says in a new report.

However, the report notes that Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are much better positioned to weather the current shock than they were during the global financial crisis; a period of multi-notch downgrades.

The economies of the three Baltic States are being hit hard by the pandemic. As small, open economies with relatively large transport sectors, they are vulnerable to the sharp fall in external demand, while domestic containment measures have hit household consumption, industrial production and what were until recently rapidly growing tourism sectors. However, the relatively quick easing of containment measures and fiscal stimulus packages have supported economic activity meaning the contractions in GDP
