Netflix (NFLX) -1.4% AH after disclosing the SEC has provided a "Wells notice" indicating likely action against the company and CEO Reed Hastings over a Reg-FD violation. The notice is related to a July Facebook post in which Hastings bragged Netflix had streamed over 1B hours in June. Many immediately thought Hastings had run afoul of SEC disclosure rules; it looks like the agency agrees.

    Fire Hastings. Been saying it for a year. The man cannot competently the run the company. Evidence has been piling up but this is the cherry on top.

    Hastings should have just stolen the customer's money. Then he could go to France instead of getting bothered by the SEC.
