We talked to CFRA’s media analyst about what 2018 holds for Netflix, Amazon, and Disney

  • Business Insider recently spoke with CFRA media and entertainment analyst Tuna Amobi about what 2018 holds for Netflix, Amazon, and Disney.
  • “This year is going to be an inflection for Netflix,” he said when asked how the company would perform in 2018.
  • Amobi thinks that one of the biggest threats to Netflix in 2018 is other media companies, like Disney, taking their content direct-to-consumer.
