Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

When it comes to streaming, there’s Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), then there’s everyone else. Sure, there’s been competition from the likes of Amazon.com’s Prime Video and Hulu, but the combination of Netflix’s cutting-edge streaming technology and an early move into original content has kept any would-be competitors at arms-length.

However, recent developments may finally bring some long-awaited competition to the space, and one announcement sent Netflix shares skidding over 6% in response. An analyst’s rosy outlook for an anticipated streaming video service from Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) caused the swoon.

An Apple a day…

Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said that if Apple debuts a video streaming subscription — which has been widely anticipated — the company could attract over 50 million paid subscribers by 2025. Netflix currently has 130 million subscribers, with 124 million of those paying (the rest are on 30-day free trials). Huberty believes that consumers would pay about $7.99 per month for the service, even for a much smaller, high quality content library, growing to a $4.4 billion business over the coming six years.
