The Scottish have been 'off and on' on independence for seven hundred years. Even Robert the Bruce switched sides. Nationalism vs practicality. Making something from this vote is foolish.
Agree. It is inherently easier to call a bottom than a top, particularly with a momo.
Profit 'from 40 international countries' beats 40 domestic countries.
If can see it's (sp) you are a moron.
Banks, Brokerage Houses and Hedges all benefit from options - indirectly both political parties. So whatever the merits of a solution, it's clout that counts.
By your standard NFLX should never have gotten above its low of $52 a few years back.
Don't be badmouthing Mr. Ed. He's buried in my neighbor's backyard.
It is not low barrier to entry. Content costs billions and development takes 2-3 years.
Don't get distracted by Amazon. There is little evidence they are trying to compete. Netflix gets no "Emmy Winning' promotion value. The issue is building viewership, so not winning Emmy's is a little setback.
The bigger issue may be Europe. Will Germans and the French be drawn to watch our nutty movies and TV re-runs? I think ya.
I'm no McCain fan. But consider the alternative: indecision. First Obama's impotent saber rattling RE Syria discredits our nation to the point where leaders worldwide laugh at him. Now Clinton and the head of the Joint Chiefs says Obama's strategy (or more correctly lack thereof) is a disaster.
You are right about commodity. But competition is fairly thin. Only Amazon offers a library that is anywhere near competitive. They charge an annual fee. Net net: unless you are an Amazon Prime customer, Netflix rules. Geeks can find most programs on other services. But geeks are the 1% extreme. People like Netflix's convenience. $9/month is great value.
Try to pass along a little wisdom and little people spit on you. I can handle it.
. . . obviously not the time to score. When WEN was under $5 it was good odds for substantial gain. Now it is not. Case closed.
Shorting the absence of analysis is a fool's game. Right now nothing warrants pegging a short position.
It is valued where it is valued - right now $479. Why, you ask? Because Netflix's management execution has near perfect for two years. Will it go lower? Sure. All stocks go lower. I too think it is too high. But so what? As George Soros pointed out long ago, fundamentals value and stock price rarely line up, which is how we make money. Live large. Make money. Enjoy this weekend.
PBS and ABC have agreed to streaming their nighty news on Netflix with a one hour delay.
Scared you, didn't I? The old technology is slow to give way, but it will eventually - particularly PBS where I get angry every time I see my tax dollars being thrown to wind by government dictatorship.
Tops are harder to figure than bottoms. That's mostly because there's a lot of 'dumb money' in play when a stock price is stratospheric. Presumably, you did a pre-purchase analysis giving you two numbers - your worst case 'sell this dog' price and the price where you expected it to run and begin taking profits. If you consistently leave lots of money on table, re-examine your analysis. It may be that you exited at a wise point where staying longer would have exposed you to very high risk. In my experience having the patience to wait for an ideal buy price and enforcing stop losses are more important than trying to catch tops. If you are making good money, don't beat yourself up.
