Maybe on a momentary basis, (momentary as in just this morning) but they're raising prices because the cost of delivering content has gone up and forced them to. That also indicates, as has already been stated without directly stating it, Netflix WILL also have to raise prices or lose even more money, quarterly. Not good for a long position at this price, any way you look at.
Yeah, way overblown. It's not like Russia is threatening to INVADE a sovereign country.
It would be much different if China was backing Russia and the US and UK had a standing treaty from the 90s that obligated us to assist Ukraine in the event of something like an invasion from Russia. It would be also be different if we had a weak and incompetent administration and Sec of State that didn't know it's @$$ from a hole-in-the-ground. This is much bigger than just a region "the size of adams county colorado / with about as much trade value to the markets."
Remember, WWI was started by the untimely killing of one Austro-Hungarian Archduke.
As soon as people realize just how weak this has shown Netflix to be and just how much they are subject to ISPs whim, the truth will be reflected in the price. Netflix has just capitulated to Comcast; wait until the rest of the dominoes fall. This has only just begun to show the true weakness of NFLX.
I didn't do a double-take, but I did shake my head in astonished amazement that they would so blatantly print such a "positive" line of #$%$. This IS the eventual momo killer of NFLX, but they haven't been given the green light to say so or to downgrade, yet.
WHEN things turn south, it will be rapid and drastic.
THE main reason for the subscriber base is the cheap cost; at least it is for those that I know. It's not the content; it's the low cost. Higher prices will have a significant impact.
That's EXACTLY what this stock price feels like. But then they go into the room and nothing happens. Then they go into the next room and you're yelling "DON'T GO IN THERE, YOU'RE AN IDIOT!!!" Then they go in there and nothing happens AND there's a big chocolate cake on the counter, and you're saying "What?"
Then they eat the cake and go into the next room and you're saying "DON'T GO IN THERE!!!" But they go in there and there's a gallon of milk. They drink the milk, you believe that all is good, they go back into the cake room, then a pack of wild dogs attacks and then the house blows up.
This biotch is SOOOOOOO being set up for SOMEONE(s) (sic) to get out with a tremendous profit at the expense of a lot of unsuspecting bagholders. The music will have to stop sometime; find a chair.
The use of unlimited "free" internet bandwidth just ended. (I know it wasn't free; thus, the Quotes)
The low cost of subscriptions will have to end; prices must go up, reducing the main appeal of Netflix
Verizon Has yet to weigh in on this...
In my opinion (which is why I'm here) SYSS has the consumer market edge; they have MakerBot! I've been hearing more and more of that name come up in "conversations" such as tech news and tech talks (outside of the MBs.)
I believe that's where the 3D market will grow with the most exposure. DDD is also good, but I believe SYSS has the edge. We'll have to see.
Actually, Organovo would be the WORST place for HP to start, since ONVO is a cutting-edge Biotech company and not an electronics tech company.
PROFIT????!!!!! They're 8,000,000,000.00 (Billion (with a "B")) in the hole!!!!
And the stock price is this ridiculously high... Yep, can't beat THAT value.
HAS TO be a big set-up for the sell. I can't understand how ANY institutional fund manager could possibly see a benefit in continuing to hold this with all of the foreseeable strikes against it.
The run-up of this crappola and the drop in the rest of the market makes this a perfect opportunity to re-balance a portfolio. Sell the unrealisticly high and buy something else at a discount.
You don't see the predictions of $500.00/shr, $1000.00/shr, destroying all cable and satellite, Global Domination, etc, etc? How did you miss those?
Beware of the irrational exuberance. NFLX is up based on some great expectations of a debt-laden European expansion, but the overall market is down big because of European turbulence.
What a ridiculous market bubble we have!
Depends on their debt, P/E, growth potential, cash-on-hand, competition, etc, etc.
I just personally believe that NFLX is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY over-priced.
