Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) - NASDAQ

    Netflix (NFLX +4%) rallies after the The Next Web notices a job listing for linguists capable of translating "marketing, UI and content materials" into "Turkish, Dutch, Hindi, German, Italian, Norwegian, Korean, and Japanese." That's fueling speculation Netflix is planning to enter some of the markets where those languages are spoken. Norwegian audiences are already covered by last week's Scandinavian launch. Netflix is now up 25% from its Sep. 25 close - Q3 results arrive tomorrow.

    Netflix's (NFLX) streaming services are now available in Scandinavia - the company had previously said a launch would happen by year's end. Netflix is charging 79 krone/month ($12-$14/month) in Demark, Norway, and Sweden, and EUR7.99/month ($10.47/month) in Finland. Some local content is provided alongside international offerings. Amazon's (AMZN) Lovefilm already operates in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, and HBO (TWX) is about to launch a streaming-only service in the region.

    Netflix (NFLX) CEO Reed Hastings "seemed to lack an empathy gene" and "just doesn't understand the consumer-facing aspects of [his company's] business," says journalist Gina Keating, whose book about Netflix's history went on sale today. Following last year's events, some Netflix critics probably agree. But Keating also has some good things to say. "I hope that people recognize he is a genius ... Wall Street and naysayers are wrong to bet against this company."

    Amazon's (AMZN) streaming deal with Epix, which did a number on Netflix (NFLX -9.9%) shares last month, apparently featured interesting terms. An exec involved in talks tells Reuters Epix will receive a payout above its fixed up-front fee if Amazon's streaming subs pass a certain threshold. A shift from fixed to variable licensing fees is arguably a negative for Netflix, since it could make it easier for smaller streaming providers to gain access to valuable content. (earlier)

    Netflix (NFLX) jumps 3.8% premarket after Morgan Stanley catches up to the price action by upgrading to Overweight with price target of $85.

    Netflix (NFLX +6.6%) announces that original series House of Cards will debut online on February 1. The show is considered the crown jewel of the company's drive to see its programming go mainstream with an all-star cast that includes Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, along with David Fincher behind the camera. An interesting aspect of Netflix's original content initiative is how it plans to use the immense amount of data it gathers on its customer's viewing habits which comes in stark contrast to the lack of transparency with network TV and the archaic Nielsen ratings.

    Shares of Netflix (NFLX +5%) continue their winning ways this week to hit their highest level since mid-August. Though the old mantra that the company sits mired in an industry with low barriers to entry and high barriers to profits still pervades, it seems to be getting a second look with the Internet streaming market still in its early stages and growth estimates set high.

    Netflix (NFLX +6.5%) roars out of the gate with a solid gain as Citi backs the Buy-rated name on the strength of their survey that shows improving customer satisfaction for the first time since last year's "Apocaflix" PR disaster. The Citi take in a nutshell: NFLX can be bought by investors at 10X P/E as its U.S. operations generate $5.50 in EPS, with a free call option on the company's international business.
