Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) stock is on the rise Wednesday after the video streaming service reported earnings results for the third quarter of 2022.

Kicking off that report is the company’s diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $3.10. That’s better than the $2.13 per share that Wall Street had expected, even if it’s a drop from the $3.19 per share reported in Q3 2021.

Another boon for NFLX stock comes from its revenue of $7.93 billion. Yet again, that beat out analysts’ revenue estimate of $7.84 billion. It’s also a 6% increase year-over-year (YOY) from $7.48 billion in the prior-year period.

Another bit of exciting news from the earnings report is the fact that Netflix reached 223.09 million subscribers. That’s good news for the company as it represents subscriber growth. This has been a concern of NFLX stock investors after the company reported subscriber losses in the first two quarters of 2022.

Weak Q4 Guidance Isn’t Keeping NFLX Stock Down

Today’s earnings beats have investors boosting the price of NFLX stock. That’s despite less-than-stellar guidance for the upcoming quarter. The company expects EPS of 36 cents alongside revenue of $7.78 billion for Q4. That would miss Wall Street’s estimates of $1.12 per share on revenue of $7.98 billion for the period.

Either way, NFLX stock is seeing strong trading as markets open this morning. As of this writing, more than 8 million shares have changed hands. That’s quickly approaching the daily average trading volume of 10.9 million shares.

NFLX stock is up 12% as of Wednesday morning.
