Netflix was the clear stock share price loser for the week of April 18, dropping 14% to $95.90, according to Cablefax’s week in review of media and telecom stocks. It disappointed Wall Street by posting weak subscriber gains for the current quarter, but also, streaming competitor Amazon announced a monthly plan for subscribers. Rather than having to pay for a full year of Amazon Prime to watch video, the retail giant is letting customers pay for a video-only service for $8.99 a month. Meanwhile, in the winners’ circle are both Viacom and Dish, which gained 11.59% ($46.50 a share) and 11.49% ($49.76 a share), respectively, at the close of the week. Investors appear to be satisfied by the deal the two companies came to after a standstill. See the full chart of winners and losers below.
