Amazon and Netflix Stocks to Watch ahead of Nasdaq 100 Rebalancing
Mark Tepper, Strategic Wealth Partners president, and Todd Gordon, TradingAnalysis.com CEO, have discussed Nasdaq 100 rebalancing in CNBC’s “Trading Nation”. Besides, they have commented on the performance of Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX) stocks.
Mark Tepper said:
“Both of these stocks have been duds since the summertime, they traded sideways, they’ve been consolidating since like June. And in my opinion that gives us a good buying opportunity.”
Speaking of Amazon, Tepper said:
“Amazon tends to go through these heavy investment cycles. … Whenever that happens investors get spooked and the multiple comes down, and then 12 to 18 months later, the investment stops, the profit spigot turns on and everyone gets blown away by the number. You buy it when they’re investing heavily and when the stock is treading water.”
This year, Amazon stock is 75.39% up. Yesterday, it closed at $3,240.96 and added 0.08% after hours. According to Tepper, Amazon shares have all chances to hit $4,000 by the end of 2021.
As for Netflix, it is 62.20% higher year-to-date. Netflix market cap hit $229.64 billion. On Wednesday, Netflix shares closed at $524.83.
“They’ve got the secret sauce in the streaming game. They’ve got the perfect blend of quantity and quality. I think Netflix has more pricing power than Disney. I think it goes a lot higher from here.”
