Apple, Disney, Netflix, Amazon, NBC, Hulu & More are All Competing Within the Global Video Streaming Market and They All Need the Same Thing… New & Original Content! Massive Demand May Create Huge Opportunity for Companies like Fearless Films (FERL)


According to an article published on Reuters the global video streaming market was valued at $26.27 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $83.41 billion by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 17.9% from 2015 to 2022.

Some reports such as one from Grand View Research have stated “The global video streaming market size is anticipated to reach USD $124.57 Billion by 2025. It is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 19.6% during the forecast period.”

A Potentially Massive & Original Opportunity

Network TV and the box office films are trying to stay relevant, these entertainment leaders are taking a different approach: streaming. Some of the hottest companies right now are Netflix, Disney, Hulu, and even Apple coming to the market.

With so many new streaming services launching what’s the one thing all these platforms will need? CONTENT!

As of February 2019, Netflix has 139 million subscribers. And they (along with all of these other streaming services) have and will be spending BIG MONEY for content.

Right Now streaming services like Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX) are spending billions of dollars on original content. According to Media Post:

“Netflix’s 2019 costs to buy, produce and license content will be $15 billion — up from $12 billion in 2018. 2019 marketing costs are pegged at $2.9 billion.”

According to a recent article that was published on The Motley Fool, the billions Netflix is spending on original content is just a small fraction of what streaming services as a whole will spend in 2019.

The article discusses how it will be a “pricey battle” for original content with some estimates putting stating that streaming services could spend approximately $40 billion on original content.

Independent Production Companies like Fearless Films (FERL) Have the Opportunity to Capitalize From This $40 Billion Dollar Content Gold Rush!

As per their latest press release Fearless Films (FERL) is the parent company of its wholly-owned subsidiary Fearless Films Inc. (Canada). Fearless Canada is an independent full-service production company founded by award-winning actor, producer Victor Altomare along with award-winning writer and director Goran Kalezic, Fearless Canada produces top quality entertainment with an edge.

Fearless Films (FERL) is an independent full-service production company! This is the exact type of company that can benefit from what could become one of the biggest cash grabs in entertainment history and here’s why…

You’ve likely heard of the big production houses:

  • Warner Bros; owned by Time Warner which was purchased by AT&T (T) For $85 billion
  • DreamWorks; acquired by NBC, now NBC Comcast (CMCSA), for $3.8 Billion
  • Red Crown Productions; a private company that does big production deals with Netflix

It isn’t just Netflix who’s flexing billions in content budgets, Apple, Amazon, Disney, NBC, Roku – the list goes on. These are massive entertainment distributors who are now fighting for one thing… Where you spend your waking hours streaming entertainment.

Connect The Dots

Behind the billions, these streaming companies are spending are production houses ready to delivery quality titles, series, and more, BUT… There’s a big problem

Either these companies are private or they’re wrapped in such large industry conglomerates like NBC/Comcast where direct exposure to this pending boom is just a fraction of what it could be.

Such an Obvious Opportunity In The Sector, Fearless Films (FERL) is Looking to Take Advantage of this $40 Billion Dollar Content Gold Rush!

Fearless Films (FERL) has built itself upon a team of seasoned, well-established industry veterans.

Fearless Films (FERL) management has built a solid track-record, its co-founders have starred in, written, directed and produced a number of films dating back to the early ‘90s! The company’s subsidiary, Fearless Canada was founded by award-winning actor, producer Victor Altomare along with award-winning writer and director Goran Kalezic.

Years of experience and industry insight places Fearless Films (FERL) at a clear advantage when building its entertainment content portfolio that will be pitched to streaming companies.

On October 16, 2019, Fearless Films (FERL) entered into a Letter of Intent with company founder Victor Altomare to acquire the rights to up to twelve movies from a library held by Victor Altomare. Among the films being considered for acquisition are:

  • The Lunatic
  • Bag the Wolf
  • The Great Chameleon

If you haven’t heard of these films, that’s quite alright and here’s why. Many of the streaming services with original content want to find entertainment that can be mass distributed by them first.

Ever hear of Lilyhammer? If you’re an avid Netflix and “Chill-er”, you know that the streaming giant picked up the first season to test the waters of this “not so mainstream” mob-based show.

What followed was almost cult-like. Lilyhammer was promoted as “the first time Netflix offered exclusive content.” The series went on to see 3 full seasons. Throughout the 3 season run of Lilyhammer Netflix was not the company behind the series, the just owned the exclusive licensing, a company called NRK owned it.

Starting To Make Some Sense?

What if you were able to have eyes on NRK as it struck a deal with Netflix and its show ultimately set the tone for “exclusive content”?

Right now, Fearless Films (FERL) is putting the pieces in place to amass an entertainment offering while bringing on notable names in the industry, and it’s happening at the exact moment streaming companies are ramping up their spends for original content.

Jeffrey Cole, a Research Professor at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, and Director of USC’s Center for the Digital Future has been following the trends of content streaming services for a while. When it came to Netflix, he suspects the service could charge even more.

“It must drive [Netflix founder and CEO] Reed Hastings crazy that a dozen years ago in the red-envelope days, he gave you five DVDs at a time and unlimited streaming for $16 a month. Now he’s giving you not just five theatrical films at a time but dozens or hundreds plus massive amounts of old television shows and $12 billion worth of originals for $9 or $13 or $16 a month.”

And what about the “new guys” on the block like Apple? Jeffrey Cole explains how important and how much money the tech giant will be spending on entertainment alone,“I think entertainment’s going to become a key element of Apple’s business. For them, spending $2 billion on [original content] is just dabbling. If they like what they see, I think they’ll have a $10 billion budget.”

Is this starting to make sense?

top biotech stocks to watch list

When it comes to building a portfolio, money managers almost always ask their clients to diversify their portfolio. That’s in order to hedge against market risks. Hence, an investor needs to explore a wide range of sectors and choose stocks from those. One of the hottest sectors lately is the biotech sector.

It has managed to generate impressive growth over the past decade and remains a potentially high growth space for investors. On that note, here is a quick look at two biotech stocks that should be tracked by investors.

Biotech Stocks To Watch #1: GT Biopharma (GTBP)

GT Biopharma (GTBP) is a clinical-stage, immuno-oncology biotech company focused on innovative treatments based on its patent-pending TriKE™ technology. GT Biopharma (GTBP) is in good company within this space. Obviously you have the biotech giants:Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:GILD), Incyte Corporation (NASDAQ:INCY), &Merck & Co. (NYSE:MRK). But according to a recent article that was published on The Motley Fool it may be time for investors to give their attention to the “little guys” aka the Small Cap Stocks.

Within this article, The Motley Fool talks about 3 “Out of favor” “Cancer Treatment Stocks.” One of the companies is a small-cap stock that, according to the article, “sports marquee oncology partnerships with Gilead Sciences, Incyte, as well as Merck.”

Similarly, when investors look at GT Biopharma (GTBP) they will notice that the company is indeed a small-cap stock and like the company The Motley Fool mentioned, has ties to a large entity to help further its own corporate missions. GT Biopharma (GTBP) has deep ties to the University of Minnesota & its prestigious Masonic Cancer Center, a comprehensive cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute. Thanks to this relationship, GT Biopharma has been able to capitalize on several key developments:

Comcast To Launch Own Streaming Service in 2020

comcast peacock

NBC Universal, owned by Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA), is all set to launch its own streaming service named Peacock in April next year and it is interesting to figure where it is going to stand with regards to the streaming wars. As everyone knows, content and pricing are the most important factors in this regard. Here is a closer look at Peacock.

According to reports, Peacock is apparently going to launch with as much as 15,000 hours worth of content for its users and it is also going to include such cult classic shows like ‘The Office’. More often than not, streaming services need a few ‘anchor shows’ in order to attract users and that seems to be in place at Peacock.

Content Providers Eager To Capitalize

Fearless Films Inc. (FERL) is a full-service production company with award-winning upper management. The company specializes in producing both short and feature films as well as scriptwriting and distribution.

Fearless Films has been developing its operations recently which has caught the interest of new investors. One development was a recent news press relating to an agreement with Victor Altomare, the Founder and President of Fearless. The company entered a Letter of Intent to acquire the rights of up to 12 movies from a library held by Mr. Altomare. The price of the acquisition is to be determined at a later date.

On October 31, Fearless Films (FERLannounced that further to its initial press release on the 16th, the Company has selected The Lunatic as the first film to be selected for appraisal and final negotiation. Fearless will engage an international accounting and advisory firm with a strong film industry practice to provide an independent valuation of the film, following which the company will enter into final negotiations on the purchase.

Companies like Fearless are looking to fill the content needs of companies streaming companies. Jeffrey Cole explained how Apple, for example, needs new content, “I think entertainment’s going to become a key element of Apple’s business. For them, spending $2 billion on [original content] is just dabbling. If they like what they see, I think they’ll have a $10 billion budget.” This is a massive market potential that Fearless Films is looking to capitalize on.

What’s In Store For Peacock?

However, it is highly interesting to note that Peacock is going to make an ad-supported free version of the platform available. Initially, it was supposed to be an option for Comcast cable or broadband customers only.

This pricing structure could throw the other companies into chaos, considering no one in the industry offers a free version at this point. Peacock expects to generate $5 per month per user from the free version. Apple TV+ is priced at $4.99 per month but it is free 12 months for users who have purchased a new Apple device. Disney Plus, on the other hand, is priced at $6.99 a month.

A yearly subscription will cost $69.99 a month. Another heavyweight that is going to join the arena in a few months is HBO Max and that is going to set back a customer $14.99 on a monthly basis. However, HBO Max will be available for free for AT&T customers. So, it is clear that the streaming space is heating up and Peacock has come up with a very interesting plan to make a mark.
