I sold "too early" at post split 26. With this morning's drop of 15%, I'd like to know some of your thoughts. (I don't plan to buy until the mid to low 20's, which I don't think it will reach.) I'm a satisfied user of their service.
<It's my next dividend pick>
If you're looking for stocks paying dividends, you may want to think about 'home-made dividends'. You sell shares when you need 'dividends'. Broadens your universe of 'dividend-paying stocks' in a way. Master K. may have something to say about this.
As politicians would say, "I misspoke."
I read the release about 5 times and convinced myself that NFLX was a good buy at this price, so I bought at 31. Even though I sold at 26 about 5 months ago, I think the metrics have improved far more than the 20% price increase.
My only major concern is Amazon. They could be a significant factor. Not worrying about BBI or WMT.
You're either a movie watcher or not. Since my wife and I don't often watch TV, except for (me) The Simpsons & Mythbusters, we watch 1 or 2 movies a week. We use Netflix for the convenience of using the mail and for being able to easily find older movies such as Ran, The Man in the White Suit, etc. Costwise, the difference is pennies, and if you did a total cost analysis to include car usage and time for the store rentals, I'm sure it's a lot cheaper.
