Our take on today Netflix rise

The semi variance is down to 6.73 as of today. Netflix currently demonstrates below-average downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of 0.15 and Jensen Alpha of 0.55. However, we advise investors to further question Netflix expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Netflix's stock risk against market volatility during both bullish and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Netflix's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

While some other companies under the entertainment industry are still a bit expensive, Netflix may offer a potential longer-term growth to investors. With an optimistic outlook on your 90 days horizon, it may be a good time to take in new shares of Netflix or increase your existing holdings in the Stock as it seems the potential growth has not yet been fully factored into the current price. Please use our equity advice module to run different scenarios to ensure your current risk level and investment horizon are fully reflective of your current investing preferences in regards to Netflix.
