There are plenty of solid 'by the numbers' stocks out there. NFLX as a spec flyer has humbled many, in my opinion best played (1) daytrading and the occasional TA breakout or (2) plowing volatility. It has proven remarkably consistent in both. Good luck.
There are also lots of stocks (check out life insurers) that will make more this year than NFLX will make 5 years from now, and these sell for PE's of under 8. But these companies are only growing at sub 5% rates while NFLX is growing 17%. Although if you do the math on a per share basis their growths are almost identical.
The problem is they don't have "the story" and right now wall street "invests" on the story...reality matters little. That will change, but who knows when.
