Whilst the main market saw a day of moderate swings, there was powerful upside in Netflix (NFLX), which settled +13.5% at $183.60. Near term outlook offers a little chop - not least if sp'2435/25, but broadly, the $200s are clearly coming.
Headline EPS did actually miss by 1 cent, but the market didn't care, as subscription growth was rather superb.
If you 'generously' extrapolate to an annual EPS of around $1.50, that still makes for a stock with a PE well >100. On any basis.. that is crazy, but then its a crazy market, where capital is desperate to find growth/yield.
With a new historic high today, many recognise the stock is headed far... far higher.
RBC capital are just one of many who are seeking >$200
It can be expected that we'll see further upgrades for 2018/19 to the 250/300 zone before year end.

Season two of Stranger Things is one 'entertainment' reason to stay alive until at least Halloween 2017.
