    NFLX could not find a buyer .... It is loud and clear

    Yeah, I think you are right. I think they had planned to be taken over all along and that's why they split the business, so the streaming side could be sold to a company like Amazon, and the buyout fell Hastings backed off from the split.

    • I agree.

      I do not believe that the change-of-heart is due to customers' complaint.

      Now, without a buyer, the institutional speculators will unwind their positions.

      • exactly, they got in early, now have huge positions, to unwind them would be very bad for their gain, they'd much rather be taken over by a huge company that would be un-affected by cashing in on their gains

        ultamately they care less about 300 vs 100 than they do care about 100 vs 10 because all it would take is 40 percent of the institutional holdings to fully liquidate and this would be trading at 10 bucks a share

        hastings is doing nothing to benefit the shareholders unless it benefits him even more
