Tesla investors had been eagerly waiting for the Model 3 unveiling for the reason that it will help the high-end electric car maker to go mainstream with Model 3, which will be more affordable.

Netflix stock affected due to analyst report

Netflix took a hit after ITG analyst issued a report, stating that the streaming video firms 2016 domestic subscriber growth appear to high. Investors may have got spooked because the same analyst predicted in the last quarter of 2015 that Netflix’s domestic subscriber outlook may be weaker than what Wall Street was expecting. Eventually, it turned out to be true, and the firm missed its domestic subscriber figures by a small margin.

However, analysts at RBC Capital Markets and Pacific Crest are much more bullish about the streaming firms prospects despite ITG’s prediction. Results from a survey that RBC conducted showed that a higher percentage of people are using Netflix for watching movies and TV shows, and this led to a spike in Netflix’s shares on Friday.

On Monday, Netflix closed down 6% to close at $95.49. Year to date, the stock is down almost 17% while in the last one-year, it is up over 47%. In pre-market trading today, Netflix shares were down.
