Netflix (NFLX) sees continued strength, +4.1% premarket, following continued reports discussing M&A speculation and potential partnerships. “With Verizon, [Reed] Hastings would get a lot broader distribution and global reach,” one source says. Any of the major content companies - perhaps except Time Warner, which has its own HBO Go streaming service - also could want to hook up with NFLX.

  • No way in hell would VZ pay $80-$100 a share for this garbage.

  • What does NFLX have?
    they don't own content, they rent it.
    they don't create bandwidth, they rent it.
    they don't have a great movie search tool or database...very mediocre...

     

    they don't have a great deal of cash over lt debt.

     

    they are currently unprofitable and are learning just how "sticky" their customer base is (leaving).

     

    They have a model which is in flux and now, not proven.

     

    $4.3 billion for this? Oh, they have a really expensive beautiful campus. Should be a nice new office for some other company. Like Sun and/or SGI were for Google....
