Netflix (NFLX +6.9%) shares are soaring, making it not only the best performing stock in the S&P 500 today but for the year so far, up 22%-plus on no news. The stock that had been "the plaything of momentum traders" last year apparently has resumed its old role, Mark Gongloff cracks.

    As a Netflix subscriber who gave up cable due to lack of choice and banal content, even versus Amazon, Netflix is still a premier value for streaming and DVD, no one is yet offering the value and/or proactive customer satisfaction, at the levels Netflix continues to do.


    They are still proactive with content deals with an extended variety of studios and distributors extending now into overseas media markets, with reciprocal content deals that still offer a great deal more than their current competitor.


    I'll revisit my opinion after the competition catches up, however I feel NFLX is an extremely good value, dominating their sector.

    Netflix lets you watch want you want to watch, when you want to watch it without commercial interruption. Plus, if you are uncertain about what to watch, they'll make suggestions to you based on your viewing history. For $8 a month you get television on demand. How cool is that!?

    you're asking the wrong questions... investing is about "cool" ideas. its about companies making money. NFLX isn't making money offering streaming deals for $8.00. If it seems to good to be true... it usually is...

    the gap is between 94 and 111 USD until then its all la la land. Once this gap is closed we shall all be in the money with NFLX moving towards 128 of luck fellow NFLX OWNERS
