    Common sense on NFLX

    NFLX earning mirrors the "burn ratio" of the dot com stocks. Back in late 90s analysts (and dot com companies) jack up the stock prices to insane levels. Remember PainWebber's target price on QCOM of $1,000 per share? Also Merrill's top internet analyst Henry Bolget invented the "burn ratio" to value the dot com companies? Many who followed his advice bought JDSU at over $1,200 per share (closed at $10.91 today), BRCM at over $180 (closed at $37.93 today), BRCD at over $130 (closde at $4.91 today) and many other companies that are long gone.

    You are buying the illusion, you are buying the manufactured stories and hopes with real cash. The stock is worth what its price is TODAY, not the $300 three months ago. You are not getting any deal. The stock may go up next day (yes, pump and dump - the old wall street game). But the stock is on the down trend.

    Dollar cost averaging? Buying more when it is "CHEAP"? I feel sorry for all of you who are brain-washed-by-the-crooks. Read this message when it gets cheaper and goes down to the drain and you start to panic. Only then you will know the pain caused by grabbing a falling knife.

    Still hopping? SET A 5 TO 8 PERCENT STOP LOSS below today's low. If it goes up, raise the stop-loss. When the reality kicks in, you won't get killed and will get stopped out and all pains will be relieved.

    If you have lost money then you have lost money. Just because you hold on to your looser does not mean you are not out of the money. It is psychology only. Dont get killed. Otherwise, no matter how good of a chance you may get in the future, it will no chance for you. Because you are killed by a single stock.

    Good luch all you longs!
