Best Stocks To Invest In 2018

Netflix’s recent price hike isn’t denting its subscriber numbers.

Netflix (NFLX) said Monday it added more than 8 million net subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2017, marking the strongest quarterly subscription gains in its history.

The company credited the “stronger than expected” gains in new customers in part to its “original content slate.” That likely includes “Stranger Things,” Netflix’s breakout show, which returned for a second season during the quarter.

The vast majority of new subscribers continue to come from overseas, as Netflix has expanded into new international markets. Netflix added 2 million users in the U.S. and 6.36 million users abroad.

The company’s stock popped over 8% in after hours trading Monday following the earnings report. If those gains hold, Netflix would open Tuesday at a new all-time high and top a $100 billion market cap for the first time.

Shares of Netflix soared more than 50% in 2017, and have continued to rise in the first weeks of 2018 on optimism about its leading position in the streaming market.

Best Stocks To Invest In 2018: RPX Corporation(RPXC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Patent litigation abuse is a major problem in the tech industry, and policymakers have looked for ways to fight it. RPX (NASDAQ:RPXC) came up with a unique approach to patent protection involving purchases of various intellectual property to deter would-be plaintiffs from challenging ownership. Yet the market for those services hasn’t grown the way some had anticipated, and even after diversifying into legal discovery services, RPX saw little choice but to start pursuing strategic alternatives to come up with a future direction for its business.

Best Stocks To Invest In 2018: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    In this MarketFoolery podcast, host Chris Hill and David Kretzmann of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Supernova discuss Tesla’s(NASDAQ:TSLA) first quarter — yes, Model 3 production is still lagging — and Elon Musk’s odd behavior on the company’s conference call; Spotify’s(NYSE:SPOT) first post-IPO quarterly report, which was a reminder of how hard it can be in tech to transition into the harsh glare of the public markets; and the future of struggling wearables icon Fitbit(NYSE:FIT).

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    A 20% spike in the fitness wearables niche was particularly good news, considering rival Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) saw its unit volume plunge during the period. Like Fitbit, Garmin has noticed a dramatic shift in consumer demand toward more premium trackers like smartwatches. Yet Garmin’s bigger product line scratched that itch for fitness fans thanks to popular new releases like the Forerunner and Edge franchises. Its lineup allowed fitness sales to rise 20% even as Fitbit’s revenue fell 18%.

    In this segment from the Market Foolery podcast, host Chris Hill and David Kretzmann of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Supernova weigh in on the latest numbers and guidance from Fitbit(NYSE:FIT): The wearables leader beat expectations — but still lost money — in the first quarter. And with revenue and device sales down by double-digit percentages, there are real questions about how long its fitness bands can hold consumers’ interest.

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has been paying a big price for being late to the smartwatch game. The company missed the shift in consumer preferences and surrendered its lead in the wearables market to a big shark like Apple, which didn’t waste much time in stamping its authority on this still-growing space.
