War With Netflix and Disney Looms for India’s Top Local Streamer

DIS NFLX

(Bloomberg) -- As global streaming giants Netflix Inc. and Walt Disney Co. spend millions of dollars to grab viewers in India, a country that could become their biggest overseas market, a homegrown rival is preparing to defend its turf. Zee5, the top domestic streaming platform set up by India’s biggest television broadcaster, is betting on local content to fend off big-spending rivals, Chief Executive Officer Tarun Katial said in an interview. “International OTTs have neither legacy nor library with depth,” Katial said at his office in Mumbai, adding that Zee5 has produced more than 100 original shows in local languages, at least 10 times more than any rival.“We can win this content battle.”. With China closed to foreign streaming services, India has become a battleground for global streaming brands, with an emphasis on delivering films and TV shows to smartphone users expected to number 850 million in two years.

Buy Roku Stock on the Dip as a Bet on Netflix, Disney & Streaming TV Growth?

DIS NFLX

We then take a look at what to expect from the streaming TV firm to see if investors should consider buying Roku stock on the dip, with Disney DIS, Netflix NFLX, and others all set to expand their customer base. Plus, investors likely aren’t pleased by the fact that the streaming TV company is expected to report adjusted losses in fiscal 2020 and 2021, after it swung to a loss in 2019. Roku sells multiple streaming TV players and its Roku smart TVs are widely popular. Yet, it is Roku’s advertising-heavy platform unit that has driven its strong sales growth recently.

2 Reasons I'm Not Impressed by Disney+ Outpacing Netflix's Early Growth

DIS NFLX

Admittedly, the pace of growth Walt Disney(NYSE: DIS) has seen from its new Disney+ streaming service is impressive -- it reached 28.6 million subscribers as of early this month after launching in mid-November. Disney's fans and followers made a meal of the disparity, suggesting it would only be a matter of time before the company caught up with -- and perhaps surpassed -- Netflix's dominance of the streaming landscape. If you're in that crowd, however, you may want to curb your enthusiasm just a bit. Disney+ customers still like other streaming services. For the better part of last year, investors and analysts could only speculate about what might happen when Netflix was faced with such a formidable threat. Although other streaming offerings were available (like Hulu, or cable companies' own answer to cord-cutting), Disney+ was the first stand-alone, direct threat to Netflix supported by a major media company. Bank of America, for instance, estimates the average Netflix customer watches between nine and 14 hours of content every week, versus only six to seven hours of Disney+. Although most consumers are willing to pay for at least two streaming services, Netflix still seems to be entrenched as the primary provider. Others are fighting to be the second choice.

Needham Analysts Prefer Roku Over Netflix

NFLX

Needham analysts on Wednesday gave an Underperform rating to Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) as they believe the demand for advertising-based video on demand (AVOD) service will far outweigh the demand for its subscription-based model. Analysts Laura Martin and Dan Medina of Needham studied the Nielsen Holdings PLC’s (NYSE: NLSN) Total Audience Report published earlier this month to conclude that Roku Inc. (NASDAQ: ROKU) is the “winning aggregator” in the U.S. of Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD) and AVOD services. According to Needham, 62% of American homes are subscribed to more than one paid video streaming. However, only 10% are subscribed to 4 or more, which implies substitution instead of a willingness to pay for an additional service, according to the analysts. Netflix is priced at $9-16/month, which is 30-100% higher than rivals Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) Apple+, Comcast Corporation’s (NASDAQ: CMCSA) Peacock and Viacom CBS Inc.’s (NASDAQ: VIAC) CBS’s All Access.

How Disney+ Subscribers Compare To Netflix, Amazon Prime And More

DIS NFLX +1 more DIS NFLX AMZN

Alibaba, NETGEAR, Netflix, The Walt Disney Company and Sony highlighted as Zacks Bull and Bear of the Day

DIS NFLX +1 more DIS NFLX 6758

With Alibaba set to report its Q3 fiscal 2020 financial results before the market opens on Thursday, February 13, let’s see why BABA stock looks like it might be worth buying. The company is also investing in its portfolio with “original content that resonates with Chinese audiences.” And investors should note that China is one of the only places that Netflix doesn’t operate. Clearly, investors still need to see how the coronavirus will impact Alibaba. But Wall Street has seemed to shake off the fears on the back of better-than-expected earnings results, which includes giants such as Apple. And stocks climbed again Tuesday, after a strong start to the week on Monday. Therefore, most investors will likely want to wait to see what Alibaba executives have to say about the coronavirus and what new guidance they provide. But the nearby chart shows that BABA stock is resting near its highs, with the stock up over 5% in February. Despite the run, Alibaba stock is trading at a discount against its industry’s 42.5X, at 30.5X forward 12-month Zacks earnings estimates.
