    Lots of 50something 60something investment gurus just don't get it

    Streaming is cheaper than broadcast just like digital media is cheaper than analog.... big bucks to be made here.

      Maybe it's less about 'not getting it' than not seeing how the industry will become profitable. Right now NFLX is eeking bye on it's cash flow. Neither Netflix nor Amazon has shown the path to monitizing this great technology.

      One thing we know absolutely: Netflix trades wildly. It is a spec stock. They don't have a bottom line supporting current stock value. Nor has Netflix revealed a forecast suggesting they will become highly profitable.

      Us oldsters understand emerging technology. We use it every day.

      I'm also not getting it. I'm trying, especially after that $70 jump in two days. I keep thinking I should ride the momentum, but I just can't seem to get the courage to throw my hard earned money out there for that play against the backdrop of fundamentals that exist. I know it's probably going to go up today, I just can't take the bait with a clear conscience. All anyone has to offer is momentum on a stock with a p/e of 600+ even before you add back in the expenses that the company isn't claiming yet. Guess I'm old school, but those bubbles are your best friend until they're not, then it's beans & rice every night, with lots of crying. Kinda like marriage ;)

    • Wait till you all zombie clowns in usa below 50 get slaughtered with biggest fraud street casino crash and demise of the us$ in 2014 and you all will be looking basement shelter in your oldie parents homes

    • That may be the case, but NFLX does not own/control the pipes (bandwidth). Also there are no barriers to entry, and NFLX has no moat. Also, did you ever hear of Amazon, Comcast, and Dish (Blockbuster), Coinstar ?.
