"I think Netflix (NFLX +4.1%) could be this decade's Amazon," says Whitney Tilson in a Yahoo talk (video). Though Tilson admits to "trimming" his position during Netflix's run-up, he still considers it undervalued relative to other media providers - "They're trading at $400 per subscriber in a world of $1,000 per sub" - and argues its scale gives it a big edge - "Who else is going to spend $3 billion a year for streaming content?" Of course, many of the firms valued at $1,000/sub are getting a lot more than $8/month. Netflix investors seem to be betting the company's library and customer loyalty will allow it to raise prices over time. (U.K. deals)
