Netflix's 4,181% return from 2010 to the present makes it the S&P 500's best performer of the decade, CNBC reports.

- Netflix’s member base rose to 158.3 million at the end of 2019's Q3, CNBC reports, with international growth as the primary driver.
- Subscribers from outside the U.S. now account for 62% of all Netflix members.
