    Shares of Netflix (NFLX +6.6%) trade higher on enthusiasm kicked up by an insider buy and a survey showing the company isn't quite as annoying as it once was to consumers. After its clumsy handling of its decision to split its DVD and streaming business set the customer satisfaction bar low, the company is now trending higher - although its still trails Amazon and Apple by a fair distance.

    Netflix (NFLX -13%) remains down sharply thanks to the tepid subscriber guidance accompanying its Q1 report. Stifel thinks the guidance raises questions about the size of Netflix's market. Morgan Stanley joins Citi in questioning Netflix's 2012 subscriber forecast, and declares LinkedIn a better buy. Needham reiterates an Underperform, but is pleased content spending growth is declining, and says an upgrade could follow the release of Netflix's 10-Q. (transcript)

    Citi's Mark Mahaney notes Netflix's (NFLX) guidance for just 200K-800K Q2 domestic streaming net adds (blamed on "seasonality") falls below a Street estimate of 1.2M, and makes the company's guidance for 7M 2012 net adds look dubious. Also likely weighing on investors' minds is Reed Hastings' assertion (.pdf) that Netflix's Latin and U.K./Ireland ops will need more than 8 quarters to "reach sustained profits." NFLX -16.4% AH. Earnings call starts at 6PM ET (webcast).

    LinkedIn (LNKD +7.2%) jumps after SunTrust starts coverage with a Buy, and Morgan Stanley (Overweight) lifts its PT to $115 from $105. MS says its analysis of LinkedIn's sales efficiency found the company's recent aggressive hiring had a minimal impact on productivity, and that leads the firm to hike its margin forecasts. SunTrust is also starting Google (GOOG +1.3%), Web.com (WWWW +5%) and Netflix (NFLX +3.2%) at Buy.
