Shares of the production and audiovisual distribution company in streaming Netflix registered a 3.2% increase on the stock market, reaching $ 339.53 after the announcement of the Oscar nominations.
The titles of the company led by Reed Hastings stood at $ 331.8 after the bell rang in the Nasdaq electronic market, compared to 329.05 in which it closed last Friday.
With the rise of more than 3%, Netflix shares have been at highs since July 17, when they finished the day at $ 362.44.
The bullish streak on the stock exchange occurs just after the company based in Los Gatos led, for the first time in its history, the Oscar nominations, with 24 nominations. Among the titles that have accumulated more candidates are The Irish, with ten nominations, and History of a marriage, with six. Both opt for the award for best feature film and best direction.
Behind Netflix have been Sony, which aspires to 20 awards, thanks to films like Once Upon a Time in … Hollywood, and, thirdly, Disney, which opts for 16 awards, largely for titles of Fox as Le Mans ’66 or Jojo Rabbit.
