Netflix, the world’s most popular streaming service, has added 7 million new clients to its customer base over the course of only three months — July, August and September. As a result, NFLX.O shares demonstrated a 11% surge before market open on October 17.
137 million people use its services worldwide, 2 million more than previously estimated. Wall Street is impressed with its most recent earnings report, as well.

“We don’t believe in ‘open-ended growth stories.’ But, darn, NFLX is about as close to one as you can find in today’s market,” said Mark Mahaney, RBC analyst.
