Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) stock was one of the biggest success stories of 2013 - soaring 312% - and should be reflected in Q4 earnings.
NFLX is projected to report Q4 earnings of $0.66 per share today (Wednesday), up from $0.13 last year. Revenue estimates are also optimistic at $1.17 billion for Q4. That's up 24% from 2012.
The key figure is new users. Netflix is expecting to report 2 million new subscribers for the fourth quarter. That's after adding 1.3 million new customers in the United States in the third quarter.

Once I get my son Joey off to school each morning - meaning I can switch away from SpongeBob Squarepants or Scooby Doo - I'll put on CNBC as I get ready for my commute to the office.
You know the drill... I leave it on in the background and sort of half listen as I finish dressing. Invariably, a story or two will pique my interest, causing me to give it my full attention.
This week, Yahoo! parted ways with Chief Operating Officer Henrique de Castro, whom Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer poached from Google in October 2012. That's because the ship de Castro was steering - digital ads - has more than halved since 2008, and dropped from 6.8% to 5.8% in 2013.
Biotech has been the hot sector of late. Last week it was Intercept Pharma shooting up 280% in one day. This week it was a 92% gain for Chelsea Therapeutics. As more development-stage biotechs near approval for new treatments,
Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG) announced Tuesday that it would be purchasing Nest Labs for $3.2 billion. Nest is known for developing Internet-connected, or "smart," thermostats and smoke detectors.
GOOG stock currently trades just north of $1,140, and has posted a gain of more than 30% in the past three months. Will adding everyday products like Nest's thermostats to its portfolio make a difference for investors?
Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) stock is currently trading just over $559 - and Money Morning's Defense & Tech Specialist Michael A. Robinson thinks it will climb 79% in the next two years.
Robinson sees AAPL hitting $1,000. A major reason for this bullish forecast: China.
Every day it seems another big merchant is announcing that it will take Bitcoin. Last week, online retailer Overstock.com joined the growing list. But the rising interest among businesses in Bitcoin is not as puzzling as it seems. The typical Bitcoin user fits a profile that business owners find very enticing.
This year's CES certainly had its share of memorable moments. It started with Director Michael Bey's embarrassing stage walk-off in the middle of a presentation. And then there was that stunt by T-Mobile CEO John Legere.
With revenues mostly stagnant for the past four years, Intel has been in dire need of a growth market. And with wearable technology, the iconic chipmaker may have found exactly what it needs to revive its stock for the long term.
On Friday, Topeka Capital Markets upgraded its price target on Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) stock to $485.00 per share, another boost for the company that seems to do no wrong of late. The share-price target indicates potential upside of 23.21% from Amazon stock's present value of $396 per share.
The Consumer Electronics Show is where you're guaranteed to see a steady stream of the world's most innovative products - everything from next-generation TVs to self-driving cars to 3D printing. The profit potential here is mind-boggling, but only a few companies will emerge as big money-makers.
Proving again that bigger is better in the fight against global cyber-attacks, another sizable cyber deal was inked late Monday.
Santa Clara, Calif.-headquartered Palo Alto Networks Inc. (NYSE: PANW) acquired Silicon Valley startup Morta Security, described as "operating in stealth mode since 2012." Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
PANW stock rose 3.7% Tuesday on the news.
When we began this journey together a few months ago, we started with a single powerful concept.
Fifty-seven percent of U.S. workers have less than $25,000 in saving - a reality that sentences those folks to a lifetime of vulnerability and fear.
After reading that, we vowed to help you dodge that bleak fate.
The key, we knew, was the U.S. tech sector.
From the lightbulb to the semiconductor to advanced sensors, America's Silicon Valley has churned out a steady stream of innovations that turned ordinary people into millionaires - sometimes virtually overnight.
So we identified seven powerful high-tech trends. And then we used my years of experience as a Silicon Valley insider to create five immutable rules we could use to identify double-your-money profit opportunities.
As we'll show you in an upcoming report, our strategy has already generated some impressive gains. And there's more to come.
The road to wealth, as we like to say, is paved by tech.
Money Morning Capital Wave Strategist Shah Gilani joined FOX Business' "Varney & Co." today (Thursday) to discuss the viability of tech stocks in 2014.
The hype and excitement that follow tech stocks can make them particularly volatile. Although Gilani cautions viewers against tech stocks that have reached 52-week highs, he generally believes tech stocks will soar in 2014, and states that "they're global, they're going to be here for a long time, and they're a good place to remain."
Gilani especially cautions viewers against Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO), as he believes the "underlying numbers have not been looking great," highlighting lower display and search revenue in November.
