Gordon Gekko is coming to Latin America. Netflix (NFLX) announces a deal with 20th-Century Fox (NWS, NWSA) that gives it Latin streaming rights for 24, Prison Break, and four other TV shows, as well as a set of classic films that includes Wall Street. Netflix has lined up many Latin American content partners (I, II), but its Q1 international subscriber and profit forecasts disappointed investors.

    The problem with NFLX still remains; They are paying to ad more content and have to pay more to keep content they have already been offering compounded by the fact that everyone else is getting into the streaming business causing the possibility that there will be price wars to gain customers thus decreasing profitability going forward.

    The Spanish-dubbed version of Wall Street is delightful, but when Gekko utters the line "greedo es muy bueno," it just didn't have the impact of the English original.

    I just started a free month trail on my Roku box.

     

    Not really impressed so far. Movie selection on streaming is decidedly sub par. Epix content is basically all they have now.

     

    TV content was superior to the other offerings but not the replacement for the premium channels that I was looking for.

     

    Stock is due for a bounce soon, as is the rest of the market likely.

     

    Strongly green on a weak tape.

    The only bounce I see at this point is a dead cast bounce. That is caused when shorts cover taking there ten and twenty point gains off the table. NFLX has more competition and less content than a year ago. NFLX is going the way of Lucent Technology (LU), Research in Motion (RIMM) and Genta (GNTA).

    Dead cat bounces are still bounces. Looking for it to head to 90 to reenter my short.

    90? You'll need some heavy drugs to get you there. I'm thinking that 75 is top end before we see 65 or lower. If the market takes a summer time slide, maybe 50.

    Just going by the oversold position and a guesstimate on where it would be at RSI 50.

    where it would or should be doesn't work anymore. it's where the hedge funds want it to go. and i'm thinking that some of them just want out before giving up.

    Hey when this dead cat bounces it shakes out a lot of shorts, hence the reason for so many points up in one day. There is still a chance that they have something up their sleeve like a deal with Disney, Starz or something. I'm not saying or hinting that they do but when an insider like Hoag buys or sells there is something to it and he probably knows something. Shorting is getting more risky down here with the violent swings upwards. Options may be a safer bet?????
