Financial stress is nothing new for many Americans, and the coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated anxiety for a lot of people. As many as 84% said in September that the Covid-19 crisis is causing stress in their personal finances, according to a survey released Thursday from the National Endowment for Financial Education.

That stress has only slightly improved over the course of the pandemic – in an April survey, 88% of Americans cited the crisis as causing stress in their personal finances.

“Even in the best of circumstances, few home budgets can withstand significant financial strain that goes on this long,” said Billy Hensley, PhD, president and CEO of NEFE, in a statement.

In addition, speaking with a financial advisor lowered stress levels somewhat — only 37% of those who sought advice said they feel anxious when they think about household finances, compared to 41% among those who had not consulted an advisor.

Start small

One of the best ways to start planning is to gain better visibility into your current financial situation, according to Jess Liberi, head of product at eMoney.

“See where you’re spending and saving your money today,” said Liberi. Once you have a grasp on that, ask yourself where you can make small improvements today that will have a big impact

  • Netflix received a Street-high price target of $650 on Wednesday from Pivotal Research Group, representing potential upside of 28% from Tuesday’s close.
  • Pivotal said Netflix is set to continue benefiting from a “virtuous cycle” of growing its subscriber base, increasing its spend on original content, and raising the price of its monthly subscription.
  • Netflix is “due for an increase” in price as early as January 2021, according to Pivotal.

Netflix is engaged in a “virtuous cycle” of growing its business and extending its lead against other video streaming services, Pivotal Research Group said in a note on Wednesday.

This cycle is just one reason Pivotal increased its Netflix price target to a Street-high $650, representing potential upside of 28% from Tuesday’s close. 

The “virtuous cycle” consists of Netflix growing its user base, which gives the company more capital it can spend on original content, which increases its potential target market, which enhances its ability to make future price hikes, Pivotal detailed.

The situation helps raise the barriers to entry for other streaming services, and Netflix also benefits from increasing broadband speeds, allowing the company to “piggy back for nearly free” on the substantial investments made by telecom companies, Pivotal said.

On top of that, Netflix is due for a price increase as early as January 2021, Pivotal added. Netflix last increased its prices in April 2019 by $1 to $2 for its subscription tiers.
