I believe in Netflix immensely and have written about it numerous times, as have other Cabot editors. I was merely providing a look at another company in the space and what they're doing.

I'd certainly wait until AgFeed reports on August 9. I like the story, but the numbers and (especially) the chart need a lot of work. Zhongpin (HOGS) has been rallying for five weeks, but still hasn't threatened to break out of its long-term trading range. Still, HOGS had a great 2009 and FEED's rally from 1 to 8 in early 2009 shows the potential. At this point, FEED has the headroom if it can get its base built and find the spark.
jblande: Poor wording choice there. I didn't just stumble on PCLN, Cabot has been following it for years.

I recently attended a search engine optimization/search engine marketing conference and all the talk was on Google with a side of Bing. I barely heard Yahoo! mentioned at all, if that's any indication of their falling market share. The one thing I love Yahoo! for is their finance site. That is one thing the company does well.
This is definitely a niche product, as swsprime pointed out above. I think it will fit in well with people who love the printed word and are in search of hard to find books for a lower cost. Ultimately electronic readers will probably be the way of books in the (somewhat distant) future, but this is still an interesting innovation in the traditional book publishing world.
