The buzz over Carl Icahn's push to see Netflix (NFLX -0.3%) sell itself may be overdone, according to analysts pouring over the investor's track record. The "mixed" history of deals includes a misfire with Lions Gate and has more cynical traders noting Icahn's NFLX buys at lower prices are already profitable off of this week's rally in shares.

    Totally agree: great business, great process and fee structure, also excellent to their members.
    Icahn is probably working a behind the scenes deal. Trying to leverage his profitability on the speculation of a merger, which he's overheard or instigating.

     

    Great comments Scott.
