And Netflix wins! The Academy has voted not to change its eligibility rule of including movies from streaming services in its nominations. Yahoo Finance Adam Shapiro and Julie Hyman discuss with the panel.
Netflix is burning through cash at a fast pace and its outlook is less certain, given the pending competition from two major new entrants to the streaming market, Disney Co. and Apple Inc.
About 14% of Netflix Inc. subscribers, equal to 8.7 million people, are considering dropping the streaming service in favor of the coming $6.99-a-month offering from Disney Co., at a cost to Netflix of about $117 million in lost revenue a month, a new survey has found.
Below, a few experts with great records in technology weigh in on the false fears, and offer some of their favorite names at the moment. Earnings growth at S&P 500 (SPX) companies will be sluggish at best for the first two quarters of this year. “The U.S. economy appears to have stabilized after a shaky start to the year,” says Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics.
More than 14 percent of Netflix customers said that they are considering canceling the streaming giant’s service when Disney+ launches in November.
The streaming service originally planned to offer $2 billion of debt and will now split the sale into $900 million and 1.2 billion euros ($1.34 billion) of new bonds, according to people with knowledge of the transaction. Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Deutsche Bank AG and Wells Fargo & Co. are managing the bond sale, the people said.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ board of governors has voted not to change its Rule Two, which defines the eligibility of films for Oscar consideration.
Steven Spielberg felt his feelings toward streaming services were misrepresented, The New York Times reported based on sources close to him. The legendary director had reportedly tried to get the Academy to change its eligibility requirements, potentially blocking out streaming services who refuse traditional rules of exclusive theatrical runs. The Academy voted to maintain its rule, it announced Tuesday, marking a key win for streaming services like Netflix.
With a market capitalization of about $167 billion, Netflix clearly has massive future growth and profitability baked into its share price. Warning! GuruFocus has detected 3 Warning Signs with NFLX. Indeed, the economics of Netflix simply fail to make much sense.
Given the market’s response, you would think Netflix was generating cash, not incinerating it. Investors bid for three times the amount of debt on offer. Thanks to that strong demand, the 10½-year dollar bonds were expected to yield 5.5%, according to early price talk Wednesday.
Dr. Ruth would swipe left on today’s dating scene. “I would not want to be young again to date in 2019,” sex therapist Ruth Westheimer, better known as “Dr. Ruth,” told Page Six (which shares the same parent company as MarketWatch) at the Playboy Club this week.

What if Netflix’s primary long-term business model is not as a media content or distribution company, but as a data aggregation company?
Cold. The kind of chill that hurts the bones. Wet. Inside and out. Boots, socks. Everything soaked. Windy. Need to turn one's back, just to speak. Just to breathe. Amid conditions like this, what else can go wrong? Wait.

But whether these internet stars will continue outperforming is debatable as their growth slows, competitive forces increase and regulations creep in. Beware of a Frothy MarketThe markets are into the tenth year of a running bull market. The current S&P 500 Shiller P/E or CAPE ratio of 31.08 is nearly double historical average of 16.61. This P/E metric compares the current S&P 500 index price with the 10-year average earnings per share (adjusted for inflation) to smooth out fluctuations in the business cycle data. Using the P/E ratio valuation, the overall market is pricey.After a quick scan of the one-year price estimates, you might think each of the FANG stocks has room to grow. Facebook even sports a modest (for tech stocks) P/E ratio of 24.3 and Alphabet's is a lowly 28.9.In contrast, the valuations of Amazon and Netflix are sky high with P/E ratios of 95.5 and 136.4 respectively.So, does this suggest that Facebook and Alphabet are undervalued?

Investigations are aggressively searching for unfair trade practices.Facebook and Google's data privacy practices are also under fire. CNIL, the French data protection watchdog, recently fined Google 50 million-euro ($56.33 million) for failing to provide users clear information regarding data use policies.Meanwhile, Netflix faces rampant competition from new streaming services along with growing debt.Then there's presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren threatening to break up the FANG stocks.Investors love high-flying growth, but the bulk of that explosive expansion may be in the rearview mirror for these tech players. If so, then the FANG stocks will be expected to grow at the same rate as the market. What's a FANG Follower to do?If you can't quell your love of FANG, keep a small position or go with a fund that includes FANG stocks. Fortunately, due to their large market cap, any diversified U.S. stock fund will provide FANG exposure.
