A Netflix investment in 2007 is worth how much now?

All eyes are on video-streaming giant Netflix, which faces new competition from Disney’s highly anticipated streaming platform, Disney+ since it reported its first-quarter earnings Tuesday.

Its stock fell more than 1 per cent in after-hours trading, after closing with a share cost around $360.

However, investing in early 2007, when Netflix first started streaming, would be a fantastic bet. A $1,000 investment made on Jan. 15, 2007, would be worth more than $110,000 as of midday April 16, 2019, based on CNBC calculations, for a total yield of approximately 10,000%.

While the organisation’s stock took a small dip after hours Tuesday, after its earnings release, it reported quarterly earnings that beat estimates and shares are up more than 34 per cent as of Tuesday’s close.

Many investors relayed positive messages early this week. In a note, analysts in banking company KeyBanc seemed sceptical that new streaming contest could pose a significant threat.

But some analysts in bank-holding company SunTrust state more streaming options might be a positive, causing users to”accelerate cord-cutting” and concentrate on their favourites.

If you are trying to get into investing, experienced investors like Warren Buffett suggest you begin with index funds, which hold each stock in an index, meaning they are automatically diversified and have a tendency to be low price. Plus, since they fluctuate with the marketplace, they are typically less risky than choosing individual stocks.
