Has Netflix overextended itself?

Netflix agreed to sell $400 million in stock and convertible bonds on Monday in an effort to stockpile some cash. The filings were seen as the latest in a series of bad news for the company by investors, with shares down about five percent. But the raising of short-term funds brings up the question of how well Netflix has been managing its cash, particularly as the company has seen customer additions stall at home while investing heavily to expand internationally. Netflix has already committed billions of dollars to new streaming deals over the next few years, which would be fine if the company had ample cash in the bank or was still on an outstanding growth trajectory. Netflix finished the third quarter with just $366 million in cash and short-term investments, however, and with $200 million in long-term debt.
