According to new projections from RBC analyst Mark Mahaney, who raised his price target by 15% up to $610 a share -- based on his expectations that Netflix will have a massive increase in subscribers in the next 10 years leading up to 2030.

Mahaney explained that Netflix "has achieved a level of sustainable scale, growth, and profitability that isn't currently reflected in its stock price". He added: "We also view Netflix as one of the best derivatives off the strong growth in online video viewing and in internet-connected devices".

"We view the steady expansion in U.S. contribution margins as demonstrating the company's profitability, with its fixed-cost content nature and historically declining churn rates suggesting further margin expansions".
