    PROVEN CRIMINALS REED HASTINGS/BARRY McCARTHY/TECHNOLOGY CROSS VENTURES ARE OPERATING AN ORGANZIED LOOT PONZI SCAM VIA NETFLIX(NFLX) ON WALL STREET Organized crime groups are often involved in crimes that are considered white collar offenses. A number of crimes committed by organized groups are done so for the purposes of financial gain. This is called racketeering, which is a felony crime. Characteristics of Organized Crime Groups Organized crime offenses vary greatly, but, there are some generalizations that apply to the groups as a whole. They are all developed based on a hierarchy of power and importance associated with the individuals in the group. They are stable organizations that usually exist over very long periods of time. They may use violence to defend the interests of the group. They usually have political or social protection that keeps them safe from retaliation from the surrounding community, including law enforcement. Their purpose is to accumulate capital which is then reinvested into the operations and businesses run by the group. The majority of organized crime groups operate behind the mask of legitimate businesses. In some cases, their racketeering practices involve the bribery and manipulation of legitimate business owners or public officials. This prevents their racketeering practices from being detected. WHERE IS FBI? DOJ? White-collar crimes cost the United States more than $300 billion annually according to the FBI.

    Reed Hasting's is a carnival barker, a mountebank, a flim-flam man, a charlatan and a confidence man. The CFO left the company in January, because he was aware of the fake accounting at NFLX, the lies and the false hype. The Head of investor relations left 3 months ago, because she could no longer lie, about the companies activities and accounting. Both left before any investigation into accounting, or investigation into the manipulation of the stock by hedge funds begins. Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley. JP Morgan, Piper Jaffray and many other financial institutions have been colluding to manipulate this stock thru proprietary trading in their hedge funds. Goldman Sachs picked NFLX as their latest Ponzi Scheme, because Reed Hastings is just the perfect Machiavellian con-man. Lloyd Blankfein And Reed Hastings are as thick as thieves. It was Goldman Sachs that forced Facebook executives to add Reed Hasting to their Board of directors, to manipulate the stock price. Reed Hasting is a false Messiah, in league with Goldman Sachs, deceiving Americans, and The indolent regulators who have been paid off by Goldman Sachs. The SEC directors are bribed by Goldman not to do their job, with promises of $4 million a year jobs after they leave the SEC, at banks, the very banks they are supposed to regulate. The SEC is corrupted and compromised by Goldman Sachs, "the Great Deceiver"

      • Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX): Is Carl Icahn a Madman or Genius?
        By: Money Morning
        Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) shares rallied 11.4% in late trading on Wednesday to close at $79.24 following news that activist investor Carl Icahn made a big move on the stock. Icahn took a nearly 10% stake in the company through shares and long-term, over-the-counter call options mostly purchased at prices below $60. In afternoon trading on Thursday, Netflix shares were down slightly, trading just under $79. That means that Icahn and his partners are sitting on gains of between 30% and 44% on Netflix shares and call options purchased between Sept. 4 and Oct. 25, according to Schedule 13D filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) yesterday. That alone should put Icahn firmly in the genius category. What is Carl Icahn's motivation for acquiring his stake in Netflix? "I believe that there is going to be great consolidation between Netflix and, everybody's read about it, Amazon or Microsoft or Verizon or Google, there are so many possible combinations," Icahn told Bloomberg TV .

        The Value in Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) A big question surrounding the stock is how much value exists in NFLX's subscriber base.

        Netflix continues to lead its competitors in terms of subscribers by a wide margin. In fact, the number of domestic subscribers is at a new high, recovering from the debacle surrounding the separation and repricing of the company's DVD rental and Internet streaming services in 2011.

        The company is aggressively expanding its services overseas, but the international business is still burdened with startup costs and remains unprofitable.

        Netflix claims to have the largest video library of any Internet streaming company and has billions of dollars in long-term commitments to content providers. In addition to third-party content, NFLX is producing some original programming in an effort to become the "HBO of the Internet."

        NFLX has also invested heavily in algorithms that suggest content to subscribers based upon past viewing habits. This technology may have value in other applications, such as marketing.

        In Icahn's view, all of this makes Netflix attractive to other companies that want to be big players in streaming video over the Internet.

        Wall Street Balks as Icahn Buys Netflix Yet most Wall Street analysts and talking heads are arguing that Icahn must be a madman for taking a stake in NFLX.

        Needham & Co. analyst Charlie Wolf told Barron's, "What does Icahn see that we don't? ... [I]t looks unlikely that the company will generate more than nominal profits through 2014, if then."

        Wolf continued, "Icahn may be interested in NFLX on the basis of last week's speculation that Microsoft may be interested in buying Netflix. Given what we see as Microsoft's weak acquisition history, this speculation may well have merit."

        The curmudgeonly Wolf was not to be outdone by Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter, who told Bloomberg Businessweek, "Icahn is clearly misguided. Unfortunately, he's convinced that he's right, and he's going to try to impress that on [Netflix CEO] Reed Hastings."

        Forbes contributor, Panos Mourdoukoutas, who disclosed that he is short NFLX through an options position, wrote, "I still believe that Netflix's business model isn't sustainable...While I do respect the instinct of Carl Icahn, I do believe he is wrong on Netflix, the company has no sustainable competitive advantage; and wishing him good luck in selling his stake in the company at a market premium."

        In fact, looking through the commentary on Icahn's interest in Netflix, it was hard to find anyone who had anything positive to say about it.

        Which brings us to another point. The market is short NFLX in a big way.

        As of Oct. 15, 2012, there were 16.2 million shares of NFLX short, equal to 29.1% of shares outstanding. That's more than two days of trading at current elevated volume.

        In addition, there are another 26.7 million shares worth of out-of-the-money put options with strike prices between $60 and $77.50.

        There is only one way to close a short position in a stock-you have to buy it back. What we have here is an Icahn-inspired short squeeze in Netflix. NFLX shorts are scrambling to cover as quickly as possible, putting more buying pressure on the Netflix share price.

        How far can the short squeeze run?

        It looks like NFLX will have to take a breather around the 200-day simple moving average, which currently stands at $82.35. With Icahn in the game, NFLX could break above the 200-day simple moving average but we are likely to see consolidation around that level first, as the current round of short covering subsides.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • The United States Of Delusion
        We are living in the United States of Delusion. The delusion has four key sources. The irony is that clinging to delusion rather than face the necessity of deep cuts in borrow-and-squander budgets will lead to the involuntary reset of the entire system, depriving every vested interest of their share of the swag. Is delusion a sustainable state? No. Thus we can confidently predict that causality, factuality and karma will eventually sweep aside delusion and all those who cling to it.

        Dear SEC, This Is HFT "Cheating" At Its Most Obvious. Regards, Everyone Else
        While prosecuting the wrongdoers is clearly not part of the new normal (see Sokol et al.), what Nanex found this morning beggars belief - both in its method of manipulation and clarity that our regulators are clueless. As they note, the high frequency traders (HFT) are at it again. Contorting the spirit of the rules, because those who wrote the rules aren't technically savvy. On January 4, 2013, we found another instance of HFT morphing their manipulative and illegal quote stuffing strategy in an effort to fly under the radar. Why they don't just stop this manipulative practice altogether tells us a few things. First, this isn't some coding error, this is sophisticated cheating. And second, because they are spending valuable programming time on this strategy, there must be some real economic advantage. Which mean a disadvantage to everyone trading against them.

    • WHAT WAS MICROSOFT RUMOR SCAM ACQUISITION RUMOR RINSE REPEAT FOR 3RD YEAR AND CARL ICAHN 10% STAKE SPIN NEWS FRAUD PUMP/DUMP LOOT PONZI SCAM IN NETFLIX TRADING PIT AND WHO MASSIVELY BENEFITED FROM THIS FRAUD TRADE??????S.E.C CRIMINAL WATCH RATS MUST ANSWER
      UPDATE: Icahn did NOT purchase shares at all - he mostly bought ITM Calls (he only purchased 500K shares, the rest of the disclosed 5.541MM stake is from call-option equivalents). It would appear someone is trying to make their year in one super-leveraged pump!

      see fraud trading : this is going on for 3 years but Criminal Robert Khuzami Gang at S.E.C.refuse to investigate instead protect and provide all fraud manipulation tools for the loot.
      Who Is Doing What To Whom On Carl Icahn’s Netflix Trades?
      So like I said those were warm-ups; the real question is: why do this? Why not just buy stock? The answer that I started with – leverage! volatility! – is plainly nonsense: you can’t rely on any explanation that assumes a customer, even a savvy customer like Icahn, is systematically and predictably taking advantage of a derivatives dealer.6 Selling naked call options to a corporate raider is awesomely dumb – Icahn can ruin you with one press release! – so nobody would do it. All that Icahn’s done is buy the stock forward.

      So why buy it forward? The answer is super boring, I think. It seems likely that Icahn works this way to avoid HSR filings: the antitrust laws require you to file forms, pay fees, alert the company, and maybe get public disclosure if you’re going to buy more than $68.2 million of Netflix stock. That sucks; it costs time and money and alerts the company when you’ve bought only $60ish million, rather than $300ish million, of their stock. If you want to buy cheap and profit from your press release, rather than buy expensively after the stock has already priced in your interest, avoiding HSR is economically important. And buying via options lets you do so.7 [Update: a reader points out that, if you multiply Icahn's 1.25mm physical shares by the $54.74 purchase price listed for the last of them, you get ~$68.4mm, or right up against the HSR threshold, further evidence that Icahn's tactics are driven by HSR. He also points out that Whitney Tilson takes the contrary "very bullish, leveraged bet" view.]

      So there’s your boring answer: Icahn didn’t get long Netflix to take advantage of his dealer’s stupidity, but to take advantage of his dealer’s HSR exemption. Now, here are some extra-credit questions. Theoretically the put + call are delta one, so the dealer should hedge by buying 100% of the underlying stock, or ~4.3 million shares. So:

      If you were doing this trade with Carl Icahn, would you initially “hedge” by buying, say, 110% of the underlying stock, and then sell down after he files his 13-D and announces his position?
      Would overhedging like that constitute insider trading? Why or why not?
      Did his dealer do that here?
      If the dealer(s) had done that, and sold at today’s closing price, they made ~$4 million today, or ~$8 million total if they put on the trade at ~$59 a week ago.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
