Who in 2012 bet on Netflix today is celebrating the company’s results. And there are good reasons for that, after all, the virtual rental company was the internet company that had the most financial success since last year.
On July 27, 2012, Netflix’s share was worth $ 58.92. On the 27th of July this year the value had jumped to $ 246.31 – an increase of 318%. Which means that if you invested $ 100 in the company that day, today you have $ 418 in your account.
It was by far the fastest growing internet player in terms of equity valuation. TripAdvisor, which comes in second, grew 109%, and the third, LinkedIn, rose 102%.
The data were collected by Mashable from Bloomberg and show that some Asian companies also stand out among those that grow the most financially. Perhaps the best known of these is Baidu, which rose 3% between 2012 and 2013.
