JPMorgan Says Apple Should Go After Netflix, Sonos Or Activision

AAPL NFLX

JPMorgan Says Apple Should Go After Netflix, Sonos Or Activision. BenzingaFebruary 4, 2019, 4:58 PM GMT. What should Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) do with its cash hoard of nearly $250 billion? Despite overseeing a deal that would in theory use most of Apple's cash, there is "value to acquiring the most successful player in this space," the analyst said. Even if Apple is looking to make a significant push in the streaming video space, it will be the "smaller player" in the market, making it difficult to replicate Netflix's success, he said. Netflix stock was up 2.72 percent at the time of publication Monday in the wake of JPMorgan's hypothetical note on how Apple should proceed with its cash. Sonos was the clear outperformer among the three and was up more than 7 percent, while Activision was up 1.34 percent.

Netflix and Spotify Haven't Killed the Subscription Hub Model Yet

AAPL NFLX +1 more AAPL NFLX AMZN

Netflix pulled its App Store payment option, which allowed the streaming-TV company to keep more of its own subscriber fees while cutting Apple out of the equation. Netflix's move is part of a growing trend that is costing Apple dearly and, to some observers, suggests that the platform-tax revenue model as a whole may be threatened. But not so fast: There are still reasons to believe that platforms like iOS can act as hubs for subscription apps and make money doing so. There's a reason that services like Netflix ever let platforms get away with taking chunks of their subscription fees. Once, new channels only needed broadcast towers; after cable overtook over-the-air TV, however, new channels had to cut carriage deals with the cable providers that controlled the underground networks that reached their viewers. Someday, platforms like Apple's and Amazon's may control our media selection in much the same way. While Netflix has the power to go directly to its consumers and Disney (NYSE: DIS) has the cash to start fresh with a stand-alone app, the future of smaller streaming subscriptions like CuriosityStream is likely tied up with the future of the subscription and payment hubs run by companies like Apple and Amazon.

Apple should buy Netflix but it would likely cost at least $189 billion, JP Morgan says

AAPL NFLX

Apple has a pile of nearly $250 billion in cash and one of the ways J.P. Morgan thinks the tech giant could use it is by acquiring Netflix, to boost Apple's position as a video content creator. "We think Netflix is best strategic fit on leading position in engagement level as well as original content, differentiating itself from pure aggregators of content," J.P. Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee said on Monday. Chatterjee notes that the purchase would likely command a sizable premium. If that premium was 20 percent, it would likely cost Apple $189 billion, the analyst speculates. The note from Chatterjee outlines three industries the firm thinks would be a good fit for Apple to make strategic acquisitions and names three firms the company should buy including Netflix, Activision Blizzard and Sonos.

Apple Buyout Targets Could Include Netflix and Sonos, JPMorgan Says

AAPL NFLX +1 more AAPL NFLX ATVI

Apple Buyout Targets Could Include Netflix and Sonos, JPMorgan Says. (Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. investors are likely looking for the company to use its massive cash pile to make acquisitions, and names like Netflix Inc., Activision Blizzard Inc. and Sonos Inc. are among the companies that JPMorgan sees as strong strategic fits. Given this environment, and given that Apple has roughly $130 billion in net cash -- along with an average of $45 billion in cash flow generated every year after dividends -- investors are likely hoping that Apple “uses its balance sheet strength to insulate the business against often-seen disruptions in the technology landscape,” analyst Samik Chatterjee wrote. Netflix was deemed “the best strategic fit” for Apple in the content category, “although we appreciate a combination is less likely as Netflix is unlikely to be a seller for a modest premium.” The video-streaming giant has a market capitalization of $148.4 billion.

Apple investors are likely looking for the company to use its massive cash pile to make acquisitions, and names like Netflix, Activision Blizzard and Sonos are among the companies that JPMorgan sees as strong strategic fits. Given this environment, and given that Apple has roughly $130 billion in net cash — along with an average of $45 billion in cash flow generated every year after dividends — investors are likely hoping that Apple “uses its balance sheet strength to insulate the business against often-seen disruptions in the technology landscape,” analyst Samik Chatterjee wrote. In JPMorgan’s view, video gaming, video content and smart home speakers are among the industries with “the most strategic value,” for Apple, “providing potential growth opportunities to leverage services over a wider installed base.”.

FX chief says Netflix exaggerates viewership numbers

NFLX

FILE - In this Aug. 3, 2018 file photo, John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions, participates in the executive panel during the FX Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills, Calif. Landgraf said Monday, Feb. 4, 2019, that Netflix is using cloudy measurements to claim increasing dominance among viewers. This year, Netflix also realized its goal of earning a best-picture Oscar nomination, for the film “Roma.”. But success doesn’t necessarily stem from an “endless money cannon,” as Landgraf described spending by what he called Silicon Valley’s “monopolistic titans.”. Netflix’s claim that 40 million households globally watched the series “You” is suspect, Landgraf said, contending the U.S figure would be only 8 million viewers if the industry’s average-viewership standard was applied. Netflix puts its money where its mouth is: In 2018, the streaming platform said it was spending $8 billion on programming, the vast majority of it original. Since 2014, programming from Netflix and other, less robust streamers has increased nearly 400 percent, compared to a 1 percent drop for broadcast and a 32 percent increase for pay cable, according to FX research.

Netflix's Hidden Price Hike

NFLX

It caused a stir, and then it faded away -- and, if patterns hold, it should be at least a year or two before we see Netflix hike prices again. But that doesn't mean that customers won't find themselves paying more for Netflix over the coming months and years. Trends suggest Netflix's customer base will create an invisible price increase of its own, one that will matter to Netflix in 2019, 2020, and beyond. Streaming devices are following suit: Roku(NASDAQ: ROKU) and Amazon.com(NASDAQ: AMZN)battled in the low-cost 4K streaming market this past Christmas season. And more and more streaming services offer 4K streaming as a standard feature or (as Netflix does) as a premium-tier perk. Netflix could add 4K streaming to its standard pricing, using its recent price hike to subsidize the new feature (4K streaming does cost Netflix more, because larger 4K files demand more server space and upload bandwidth). But if current trends hold, more customers will move up the rungs of Netflix's pricing structure between regular price increases.
