Every organization aims to do better than it did the previous year, month or day. We’re pretty sure Reeds Hastings sets the same goals for one of the most popular online streaming networks in the industry. The Netflix CEO saw the network reach new heights on Friday. Netflix reportedly went up 3.5% this past Friday closing as what the business insider reports as their all-time high. The amount added was $133.70.
This will definitely be a plus in the quarterly earnings report on January 18th. Investors have every reason to feel confident at this stage. We don’t want to make any assumptions but we cannot help but speculate that maybe our line-up list for Friday the 13th had something to do with it? Maybe not. All credit, however, should go to Netflix for giving the gift that keeps giving: Original Netflix shows. Not forgetting the loyal Netflix supporters, without them, this change could never have occurred. Feel free to look in the mirror and give an award winning speech.
The Team That Made It All Happen
Of course behind every success story, there is a team of hardworking individuals who made it all happen. Let’s meet some of the people that make up Netflix, shall we?
