Evercore upgrades Netflix; shareholders reject chairman/CEO split

  • Evercore has upgraded Netflix (NFLX) to Overweight after the bell. The firm upgraded Netflix to Equal Weight last October, when shares were at $355. It launched coverage at Underweight the prior April, when shares were at $169.
  • Separately, shareholders have rejected a non-binding proposal calling for the chairman and CEO roles (both currently held by Reed Hastings) to be split by a 53/47 margin. Hastings was re-elected to Netflix's board by a 74/26 margin.
  • NFLX +0.5% AH.

    Yeah, there are some sell-side analysts out there that actually function pretty well as *contrarian* indicators.

    This really is classic, isn't it? Let me guess. They will downgrade the stock to equal weight when it hits $350.

    The recommendations from the stock analysts are meaningless. One analyst upgrades while the other downgrades. Who should you follow? Just flip a coin if you are not serious. Otherwise, do your own homework before investing.
