New 52-week highs for Facebook, Netflix as momentum traders pile in

Short Hills Capital's Stephen Weiss: "You take a look at Tesla. You take a look at Netflix. You take a look at Green Mountain Coffee. If you've got momentum, you're going to go a lot higher." Words of wisdom, or a reason for bulls to be cautious?

Facebook (FB +2.3%) is adding to the gains it saw on Friday following positive numbers from comScore and ITG Research.

Netflix (NFLX +3%) has been lifted lately by strong ratings for Breaking Bad (first-run U.K./Ireland rights), and a major deal with The Weinstein Co.

There are also rumors Microsoft might try to buy Netflix to make (ex-board member) Reed Hastings Steve Ballmer's replacement, but the notion Microsoft will acquire a $16.9B company (a buyout premium could make it $20B+) just to get a new CEO should probably be taken with a spoonful of salt.
