Shares in Netflix Inc. (NFLX) have declined sharply ahead of the opening bell after the streaming company reported disappointing quarterly results late Monday. Yesterday’s Morning Coffee advised our readers to sell into any strength during the session.

Revenue came in at $3.91B despite a $3.93B forecast, and subscriber additions came in at $5.1M despite a $6.2M forecast. An EPS of $0.85/share included a rise largely due to currency appreciation, so you could make the case that EPS was a miss as well. Excluding the FX gain EPS came in at $0.66/share despite a $0.79/share forecast. Netflix guided Q3 EPS revenue and subscribers just below the Street’s expectations.

Netflix stock was ‘priced to perfection’ and Wall Street analysts warned about risk to Q2 subscriber estimates in recent sessions. The stock is down 12% in pre-market testing and it’s 20-week moving average is near $343. We would re-enter the stock just below that average.

Read our technical analysis on Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) – the general consensus from analysts still seems to be very bullish, however, crypto continues to fail to gain traction due to lack of volume.

There have been a lot of positive developments in the cryptocurrency space in the past 24hours. There appears to be some significant news, in addition what we discussed yesterday, that continues to add to the bullish sentiment and momentum for Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrency / blockchain space.
