Netflix’s (NFLX) subscriber debacle may turn a corner this quarter, but Lazard reiterates its Neutral rating and advises holding off on the stock, given the company may lose half a billion dollars expanding internationally. A 17% "gross subscriber" addition rate in 2012 would be enough to cover the 70%-80% rise in the cost to NFLX for streaming video content, Lazard says.

  • where in the world is the 70-80% rise in streaming cost coming from? a few seasons of tv shows and a handful of B movies?? (not impressed) double the streaming content and you MIGHT get that 17% increase in subscribers.

  • That's half the problem.... NFLX cost are going up 70%80% on B Titles. They are losing all the decent content that they we're paying for like Starz and instead paying even more to replace it with content like stuff from CW
