Netflix shares jump as subscribers grow ahead of Disney, Apple attack

AAPL DIS +1 more AAPL DIS NFLX

(Reuters) - Netflix Inc (NFLX.O) added slightly more paying subscribers than Wall Street expected in the third quarter, a relief to investors who had worried the company might fall short just as Disney and Apple prepare to ramp up the streaming video wars. The results for July through September represented a rebound from the previous quarter when Netflix lost U.S. streaming customers for the first time in eight years and missed targets for overseas subscribers. That performance, combined with concerns about new competitors, had weighed on Netflix shares, which had fallen 21% from the last earnings report through regular trading on Wednesday. For the third quarter, Netflix was boosted by new seasons of shows such as "Stranger Things" and "13 Reasons Why." The company will release a new installment of "The Crown" and Martin Scorsese film "The Irishman" during that time. But it will face new competition starting in November from Disney+, a streaming service from Walt Disney Co (DIS.N) that will be stocked with movies and TV shows from Disney's popular Marvel, "Star Wars," animation and other properties.

How to Buy Stock In Top Companies Like Apple and Amazon

AAPL AMZN

Thankfully, we can look at some of companies that have put up stellar returns over the past few decades, companies like Amazon and Apple, and note some of the traits investors should look for to identify monster stocks in-the-making. After all, the newsletter they have run for over a decade, Motley Fool Stock Advisor, has quadrupled the market.*. In fact, these large companies continue to drive most of the growth that investors see in the markets. Although these companies are now household names, they weren't always the golden child for investors. So how do you, as an average person, find great companies like Amazon early on and enjoy 500% or 1000% returns on your money? You should plan to be buying a part of that business and holding it for years --preferably as long as possible-- but at least 5 years. For reference, Amazon shares lost more than 90% of their value during the dot-com bubble at the turn of the century. But long-term buy-and-hold investors won out. If you had bought Amazon at the peak, right before the dot-com bust but held without selling, you'd still be up nearly 1600% today. So, when you think about buying businesses instead of tickers, that leads you to look at important factors such as management and sustainable competitive advantages instead of short-term market noise.

Apple and Goldman Sachs are being picky about who gets an Apple Card

AAPL GS

"The approval rates early on have been lower," Goldman CEO David Solomon said on the bank's third-quarter earnings call, adding that the bank is favoring applicants with excellent credit scores. "That's a decision Goldman Sachs is making as the bank, but we're doing that in concert with Apple." "They are keeping their underwriting standards high, and are able to be picky about who to approve, because there is so much demand for the branding, convenience, and new features of the Apple Card," Benjamin Keys, an associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, told Markets Insider. "Keeping approval rates low suggests that at least initially Apple wants to focus on low-risk (higher credit score) customers who will use the card transactionally and generate interchange fees, rather than catering to higher-risk customers who may be charged high interest rates but also default at an elevated rate," he added.

Apple Adds Noise-Cancelling to Beats Solo Over-Ear Headphones

AAPL

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. on Tuesday announced the Beats Solo Pro, its first update to its mid-tier over-ear headphones in three years, adding noise-cancellation to a product it inherited through the acquisition of Beats Electronics back in 2014. The new headphones add an aluminum frame for increased sturdiness, improved resistance to water, a new chip for quicker pairing to Apple devices, and more surface area around the speaker areas. The most notable new addition is active noise cancellation, a feature that Apple is also working to add to future AirPods, Bloomberg News has reported. Sport is the second most popular use case for the Beats Solo, so Apple made the latest iteration resistant to sweat and splashes with new gaskets and coverings.

Apple Redesigns World’s Best-Selling Headphones With New Beats

AAPL

Apple Redesigns World’s Best-Selling Headphones With New Beats. Apple Inc. on Tuesday took the wraps off the Beats Solo Pro, the first major redesign of the on-ear pair since Apple acquired Beats Electronics back in 2014. Unconstrained by the limits of smaller manufacturers, Beats leveraged Apple’s scale to get primacy among suppliers, devised entirely new custom-made transducers just for the Solo Pro, and harnessed the talents of the same engineering teams that worked on the iPhone 11 Pro. These new headphones expand it further by “taking ANC to a whole other customer.” A feature that was once narrowly designed to appeal to long-haul air travelers is now becoming mainstream, and Apple’s embrace of it with the Solo Pro is an acknowledgment and accelerant of that trend.

Black Friday iPad: what deals to expect on Apple's tablet in 2019

AAPL

Apple has been known to hold an event of its over the holiday weekend, though it doesn't officially call it a Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale, but often the deals aren't as strong as they are from other stores. We'll be here to guide you all fear, so fear not, my fruity friends. But until the Black Friday Apple iPad deals kick off good and proper, here's what's likely to happen when it all starts... When will the Black Friday iPad offers start? Black Friday iPad offers (as well as all other Black Friday game deals), seem to start earlier and earlier with each passing year, as retailers fight for your dollars and pounds. While this year's Black Friday officially falls on November 29, discounts will probably start as far as two weeks before that, before you've even ordered your turkey. Apple updates its tablets so often that, if you can live with a 2018 model over a 2019, you can score even bigger discounts. If you just want something for Facetiming bae and checking out Apple Arcade, then Apple's 2018 9.7-inch iPad will work just as well as a 2019 model, but will be more likely to see a big discount.
