On Friday, Evercore ISI sustained its positive stance on Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) shares, maintaining an Outperform rating and a price target of $650. The firm's confidence in the streaming giant follows a series of meetings with Netflix management and leading advertising technology companies during the Upfront week in New York City. According to the firm, Netflix is currently in a very strong position, both financially and in the competitive landscape.

The firm highlighted Netflix's content lineup, which is reportedly as strong as it has ever been, and noted robust growth in both paid subscribers and advertising viewership. The streaming service's ability to adjust subscription pricing and tiers effectively was also commended. Moreover, the firm pointed out that Netflix's advertising monetization efforts are gaining momentum as the company partners with third-party ad platforms such as The Trade Desk (NASDAQ:TTD), Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL), and Magnite.

Evercore ISI remarked on the decline in competitive intensity within the streaming industry, which is seen as a beneficial factor for Netflix. The firm also emphasized Netflix's record levels of free cash flow, suggesting a healthy financial state for the company.
