Netflix NFLX Sell in May and Go Away Stock Strategy

Netflix, Inc., (Stock Symbol: NFLX) commonly just “Netflix“, is an American corporation that offers both on-demand video streaming over the internet, and flat rate DVD and Blu-ray Disc rental-by-mail in the United States and Canada.

The company was established in 1997 and is headquartered in Los Gatos, California. It started its subscription service in 1999. In 2009 it was offering a collection of 100,000 titles on DVD and surpassing 10 million subscribers. On February 25, 2007, Netflix announced the billionth DVD delivery.

Using the “Sell in May and Go Away” stock strategy for Netflix over the past 5 years would have given you a 36.12% average return on your money from the November 1st to April 30th time period versus a 17.07% average return from the May 1st to October 31st time period – a difference of 19.05% on your money.

The 5 year average performance of Netflix using a “Buy and Hold” strategy would have given you a 53.19% average return on your money – a much better deal in this case.

Owning Netflix just in the months of March and September for the past 5 years – you would have never had a loss and achieved an average gain of 11.55% and 13.47% on your investment during those months.

Some investors consider “Seasonal Stock Performance” when purchasing or selling Netflix stock. This data illustrates the average monthly return for the past 5 years. Users often also consider the number of times a stock increases or decreases for any given month.
