Even as consumers begin to venture off their couches, Netflix should still attract new subscribers and post strong revenue growth for years to come, according to UBS

Data collected by the brokerage points to "solid subscriber growth trends in the U.S. and internationally," analyst John Hodulik wrote Friday.

"While the stock may remain volatile in the near-to-medium term, we continue to view NFLX as the long-term winner within streaming media and remain constructive on the fundamentals," he added.
