Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) - NASDAQ
  • Nov. 2, 2012, 9:32 AM

    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.

    Reed Hastings' wakeup-call: Carl Icahn isn't beating around the bush on why he's been stockpiling up shares of Netflix (NFLX), revealing in an interview his opinion that there’s going to be acquirers that want to buy it and it's just a matter of corporate governance. That last bit may be a reference to a push by a group of shareholders for board declassification and the right to call special meetings. (Bloomberg TV interview)

    Shares of Netflix (NFLX -4.3%) move lower after the giddiness over Carl Icahn revealing a major stake wears off a bit. An Oppenheimer downgrade to Perform is tipping sentiment with analysts pointing out Amazon's future behavior in Netflix's space is unknown.

    Netflix (NFLX +13.4%) resumes trading after a halt to reach as high as $84.50 before tripping up circuit breakers once again. All the excitement is tied to a 13D filed by Carl Icahn showing a 9.98% stake in Netflix and saying the company holds "significant strategic value due its dominant market position and global growth prospects". Now the question is if Icahn still sees shares as undervalued now that they have run up a hefty gain lickety-split.

    Netflix (NFLX +13.2%) continues to drive higher fueled by renewed rumors Microsoft is in the hunt for the company. A quick exit now and an investor is back to where they were before the company's Q3 earnings bomb (I, II, III).

    Hulu should consider buying Netflix (NFLX -11.9%) in order to instantly add to its movie library and number of subscribers, argues Louis Bedigan. The key to the deal for owners NBC <, Fox (NWS +1.4%), and ABC (DIS -0.1%) would be the ability to lower content costs when contracts were up for negotiation. A beat-up Netflix is also starting to unfurl an entry point that might look enticing for the well-funded trio of owners.

    In addition to issuing soft subscriber growth guidance in his company's Q3 report and shareholder letter (.pdf), Netflix (NFLX) CEO Reed Hastings made waves by admitting competition from Amazon, Hulu, and others is a matter of concern, and predicting HBO (TWX) will launch a streaming-only U.S. service. Also of concern: 1) Netflix's "known" content liabilities total $5B, of which $2.1B are due in the next 12 months. 2) Domestic streaming's contributing margin remains ~1/3 that of the declining DVD business. Shares -16.1% AH.
