And since you haven't been able to do that... You try encouraging others to put me on ignore. Good critical thinkers interested in getting the right answer ENCOURAGE thoughtful dissent, rather than ignoring it and trying to censor it. You're not in control Beelzebub... You've shown your true identity many times today and the people have rejected you.
There is maybe 5 posts per month worth reading here. If you put techstrategy on ignore you will cut down on 20% of the posts that aren't reading. If you also ignore Sybil_rulez it's another 15%.
I mean if Netflix isn't the 'cable' provider on the internet... who is?
That's what Apple, Dish, Sony is trying to be .. we'll see I guess. But they better pour some money into it.
Only Apple has the money but I don't see them risking their business on a media play. They want to sell hardware. I really think if Apple passes on a serious attempt and their skinny bundle goes the way of Apple TV then this game is over and Netflix is a 200B$ company.
Even allowing for the reality that you have the social skills and emotional maturity of a 5th grader, you wouldn't invest so much of your very valuable (IYHO) time if it wasn't important to you to try to discredit me...
NFLX: 1.82MM shares underlying, 27.7K calls, 25.7K puts, Synthetic finance leverage ratio: 2.93, UpperDeck unloading 1.08, Notional value traded today about 80% of annual revenues...
AMZN: 4.1MM shares underlying, 35.1K calls, 20K puts. Synthetic finance leverage ratio: 1.33, UpperDeck unloading an ASTOUNDING 1.75. Slightly lower total notional traded (about $4B), but nothing is as egregiously dependent upon the synthetic finance driven glorified theft as NFLX...
Yes, an App or channel on AMZN's VODAAS for content owners...
And if NFLX owned the pipes to the home, it would have the strategic asset that Comcast holds... But, it doesn#$%$ trying to build its proprietary content, but still modest compared to the real content owners. It's mainly a series of relatively short term contracts and off balance sheet liabilities...
I get a kick out of watching Netflix act like they aren't gunning for cable itself rather than simply being an app or a channel on a future internet version of cable. Of course they are. If Hastings or Sarandos is quizzed about it they like to point to sports to indicate that they can't do it all. Well.... if they do everything BUT sports they still are more or less copying cable.
They are basically trojan horsing. HBO isn't their target. Comcast is. They want to be the Comcast of the world. If they win on everything non-sports they will perfectly happily bring in sports it merely behooves them to act like they are uninterested at this moment.
Hey cashback, did you know that the control rackets are creating a protection fraud for Netflix that is ruining the world?
DTV have a bid with the AT&T buyout. Comcast has a growing broadband business but their NBC Universal division is going to hurt. I've noticed that NBC is aggressively pursuing sports. A good move since Netflix isn't interested in sports at this time. Time Warner's stock probably will eventually turn over like CBS and Viacom. Look at Viacom's chart and you can clearly see the damage Netflix is doing to cable TV. It's going to get a lot worse.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Neither TSLA or AMZN or NFLX stock prices indicate taking over the world. They are all inferior to certain competitors.
You also have more promise than techstrategy (who doesn't?) but you are most likely gonna struggle in your future efforts.
Bunk I admitted it when the stock was in the $300's since I haven't bet against it in a long time. That's the stock. Let's see how the company does in the long run. I'm sure TSLA and AMZN and maybe others will all take over the world since that's what their stock price says. Of course TSLA was on the verge of bankruptcy not all that long ago until they pumped it up and got some new funding.
