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.

    The above notice refers us to Sundays' SA article by "Money Investor." In the comments for that article, I documented in detail why Hulu was a big disappointment to me.

     

    I continue to prefer Netflix, for both its streaming and DVD/Blu-ray services!
