| Netflix is an internet entertainment service with paid memberships members in several countries enjoying TV series, documentaries and feature films across a variety of genres and languages. Members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on any internet-connected screen. Members can play, pause and resume watching, without commercials or commitments. Several members in the U.S. subscribe to Co.'s DVD-by-mail service. Co. has three reportable segments: Domestic streaming, which streams content to its members in the U.S.; International streaming, which streams content to its members outside the U.S.; and Domestic DVD, which provides services consisting solely of DVD-by-mail. We show 41 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our NFLX shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute NFLX market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing NFLX market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing NFLX's market cap history versus its peers.
Many "beginner" or "novice" investors will look at one stock trading at a price of $10 per share and another trading at
a price of $20 per share and think the latter company is worth twice as much. Of course, that is a completely meaningless comparison without also knowing how many shares outstanding there are for each of the two companies,
and then calculating their respective market caps. Comparing the share price of NFLX versus a peer is one thing; comparing
NFLX market cap versus a peer is a completely different story.
Furthermore, via fluctuation both in per-share price and in the number of shares outstanding (via issuance of new shares over time, the repurchase of existing shares),
the market cap for a company like NFLX can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching NFLX by allowing them to research the NFLX market cap history.
