Netflix’s revenue grew 27.4% year-over-year

Video streaming giant Netflix (NFLX) announced last year’s fourth-quarter results after the closing bell on January 17. In this series, we’ll look at the results’ key highlights.

The company’s revenue grew 27.4% YoY (year-over-year) to $4.19 billion during the fourth quarter, slightly below Wall Street’s expectation of $4.21 billion. This miss caused the company’s stock to fall 3.5% in after-hours trading on January 17. The company’s revenue grew 33.9% YoY in the third quarter of 2018 and ~40% YoY in the second quarter.
