Earnings Outlook: Netflix earnings will be all about subscriber additions, especially overseas

Netflix Inc. is scheduled to report its second-quarter earnings after the close on Monday, and investors will once again zero in on the company’s net subscriber additions, especially those from outside the U.S.

Analysts polled by FactSet expect Netflix NFLX, -1.85% to add 6.2 million net subscribers in the second quarter of 2018 — 1.20 million in the U.S. and 5.01 million internationally. This is similar to the 1.2 million and 5.9 million Netflix forecast in April.

“The debate from here centers on Netflix’s ability to drive the kind of adoption rate and returns globally it has built in the US,” wrote Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne in a note published Thursday.
