    Barrons is missing an important point

    Content providers need Netflix just as much or more than Netflix needs them. AMC came close to cancelling Breaking Bad. Once it got picked up by Netflix it became a hit. Because of NFLX, people are buying the show on Amazon, ITunes, etc. If anything, when contracts get renegotiated, prices will go down for NFLX, especially for TV series.

    • Netflix just does not have the money to pay. Its current financial "health" is false and cannot be sustained. It has to either raise fee for its subscribers (probably getting killed of this idea judged from its painful experience in the past) or continually increase subscribers (it's plateaued, that's why all the fussy cooperation "news" with cables, etc., and its international campaign is just a money losing venture).
      Netflix has no way to go but raise money by selling stocks, massive numbers. Or maybe crazy Cramer might be willing to mortgage his mansion to buy a piece of content for Netflix if he wants to save this hopeless company.

      Only if the stock price drops significantly, can anyone be interested in buying some shares to support its operation.
