Netflix (NFLX -3.4%) is seeing more profit-taking on a down day for tech. Over the weekend, SA contributor Money Investor noted the valuations being thrown around for Hulu (Bloomberg has reported of $1B+ offers) imply a major price/sales discount relative to Netflix's current valuation of 2.8x 2013E sales. One could also point out they appear to be below the $2B valuation Providence Equity obtained last fall for its 10% Hulu stake. On the other hand, Netflix has been soundly outgrowing Hulu, and its paid subscriber base is now bigger than Hulu's estimated total viewer base.
