I joined Netflix 10 years ago and love it. One thing I don't like is they have gotten away from buying movies from Hollywood and instead are depending and investing heavily in original content. That's great and they have had some great shows but they are beginning to all look the same and generic. I would like to see them get a few more movies actually produced in Hollywood for download.
Looks very strong today. Seems to want to get back to the 166 high. I think it will get there in about a month but am expecting a short term slight pullback here from 158 and change. Too much too fast.
Look at the insiders, as soon as they receive stock through exercise options they sell ALL the shares, not just like 30-40% to cover taxes. What are they trying to tell you, some vote of confidence on the future stock price.
Steven1 minute ago Overall impartial view of Netflix. Full Disclosure... I am a shareholder. Valuation is getting a bit high here for certain. However, folks need to realize the enormous accomplishments of this company. The entertainment business (TV/Movies, etc) has been dominated for the past 6 decades by a few powerhouse companies including several studios and TV broadcasting networks. What most people fail to recongnize about Netflix is how they were able to enter this realm of business and gain serious marketshare both through original content and movie/series contract deals. Classic case of David and Goliath. Not only has Netflix entered this market/industry, but more importantly they have established themselves as a dominant player. They can reach the entire globe with their services, not tied to any regional cable company restrictions, etc. Look at what they have done to Direct TV... Direct TV is shifting their business model to 100% streaming and have been reduced to an App called Direct TV Now. I remember 6 years ago how the CEO of Direct TV laughed at Netflix... who is laughing now. :) I have not had cable in over 5 years. I watch Netflix and HBO Go exclusively. I can watch it anywhere anytime. That is awesome and I get to watch international shows on Netflix that American Cable companies never broadcasted on their channels. Netflix is truly an amazing business. Apple, Facebook or the likes of Verizon would be wise to buy this company. Disney missed their chance to buy Netflix as they can no longer afford the company. Apple or Facebook would be the best fit... the myriad of ways to produce additional revenue streams with the Netflix brand are unlimited. Netflix is just getting started and has and will continue to change the way the world accesses entertainment. Enjoy!!
22 million people could be part of a class action against the streaming company.
A Netflix customer who says he was promised a $7.99 per month subscription fee for the life of his account is suing the streaming giant for increasing its prices, according to a proposed class action lawsuit filed Wednesday in California federal court.
"For a period of time, Netflix solicited persons to subscribe to Netflix's streaming service by guaranteeing that Netflix would not increase monthly subscription prices as long as the subscribers maintained the subscription service continuously," states the complaint. "Netflix has broken its contract with these subscribers by unilaterally raising monthly subscription prices."
George Keritsis says he saw an ad promising that Netflix would guarantee the $7.99 monthly subscription price and called the company to confirm it was true. The telephone representative ensured Keritsis the fee would be "grandfathered," and he subscribed based on that representation.
In October 2012, his rate increased to $8.68 per month. In June, Keritsis received an email from Netflix informing him that his "special pricing" is ending and his new price would be $9.99 per month. The email listed a phone number for subscribers who had questions, so Keritsis called.
"The Netflix representative stated that he could see Plaintiff's account was 'grandfathered in,' states the complaint. "Plaintiff protested that the price increase was inconsistent with the lifetime price guarantee. The Netflix representative stated that Netflix would raise prices for all grandfathered accounts, not just Plaintiff's account."
Keritsis is suing Netflix for breach of contract and is seeking class certification for "all persons who entered into an agreement with Netflix for a streaming plan at a subscription price that Netflix promised not to increase for as long as they continuously maintained their subscriptions." He says that's at least 22 million people.
Netflix has not yet commented in response to the lawsuit.
Of the FANG stocks, NFLX has the highest PE and lowest potential. And they are too expensive to be acquired.
We should've been trading at $157.50 yesterday!
should have sold when it was down.... oh man...
Think it's all on the up and up? Look at yesterday's chart, notice the steady climb higher after bottoming in the morning? How could this be accomplished? Look at after hours trading, like 468K shares traded, however about 100K traded at 4:00:05 at $151.76, which looks like the MM clearing their books. But look at 6:41, another 296K traded at $151.76 (magically the closing price). This is what the "MM sitting on shares" means. You're seeing what they want you to see.
This will be busted in 5 years. There will be a better technology for sure. There always is, so BECAREFUL! I know new people to stocks believe this is a buy and hold; but its not. This type of stock can be bought and sold for the short term only. One must be prepared for the next big thing always. Put your stop losses in just in case. When this tanks it will have a 20 percent free fall. Like all the unnecessary giants do.
what is a good price for re-entry point for next week?
Getting ready to cancel netflix. A recession is coming and I need cash to buy cheap stocks when everyone panics.

Odd thing is the FED will raise rates today but they will do nothing different. The only people the rate increases hit are the working stiffs, have junk bond yields increased comparable to the rate increases let alone the expected future rate increases? There you go, pre-market painting, probably through QQQ futures. So pre-market up $1.27, somebody thinks NFLX's valuation went up $500M overnight. Should you take your gains? Hmmm.
No one thought blockbuster would be history either... Netflix offerings are all liberal propaganda. House of cards is boring because real politics is more exciting. Short this pig to zero. Tech bubble bout to go pop!
Netflix shares have charted a key reversal pattern, which is a strong bearish indicator.
Can Netflix Inc Stock Bounce Back From The Recent Correction?
Netflix Inc (NASDAQ:NFLX) stock has charted a key reversal pattern, which is a strong bearish indicator.
Those MM are tricky, last Friday in after hours 470K shares traded. At nasdaq.com they only show so many detail transactions for a 1/2 time period, to many and the oldest aren't visible. Well last Friday 294K traded by 4:00:27, then from 4:00:28 to 8:00, 176K traded, however there was a 92K trade at 5:56 for $152.38 (closing price). So it looks like the MM are sitting on 386K of NFLX shares. What are the odds that Monday NFLX will open say $.85 to $1.25 just to catch trailing orders? Oh it does look like the hedgies are getting a little nervous, on Friday over 800K of shares were traded in the first minute of trading.
desperate people trying to talk this down.... ha ha
If Netflix hits $149.99, its going to $145 and back to $155 in few weeks.
They down grade AAPL, what do they say about NFLX? AAPL's next 4 years earnings are about $41 plus it pays a dividend. NFLX next 4 years earnings is about $10 with 48% of that coming in the last year, no dividend but a substantial cash burn. However 1 share of AAPL is around $145 but 1 share of NFLX is $151. NFLX's story doesn't hold up in light of another stock's "story" like AAPL or DIS or FB. The question you need to ask yourself is does Janet Yellen want to own some NFLX?
