After posting gains of 19% and 4% on its last two earnings reaction days, Netflix (NFLX) is entering its April earnings report (tonight after the close) in what appears to be a hibernation phase. Over the last three months (60 trading days), NFLX has had a high/low closing range of just 7.77%. That’s actually the lowest 3-month high/low range that the stock has ever experienced dating back to its IPO in 2002.
Given the complete lack of volatility for a normally volatile stock, is NFLX set to explode higher or completely tank lower when it opens for trading tomorrow following earnings? It’s definitely likely to experience a big move one way or the other. Over NFLX’s 59 quarterly reports dating back to ‘02, the stock has experienced an average move of +/-13.87% on its earnings reaction days. That ranks it at the very top of large-cap stocks and 13th out of all US stocks in terms of earnings day volatility.
