  • Netflix (NFLX -3.1%) sees more selling pressure following a downgrade to Underperform from Wedbush. "The company's business model was broken when it raised prices," Wedbush claims, "and continued customer defections will require it to invest ever increasing amounts on marketing." It also forecasts Netflix's streaming content costs will rise to $1.7B in 2012, from $800M in 2011. (previously)  [View news story]
    seems if they cant renegotiate content then .....this could become the best short in recent times.

  • Netflix (NFLX -3.4%) CFO David Wells provides another mea culpa regarding his company's disastrous price hike, stating the move was (ironically) motivated by "business strategy" rather than "consumer strategy," and Netflix's unwillingness to grandfather old rates was a breaking of "social norms." Are the comments just more damage control, or is Netflix actually thinking of backtracking a little? (earlier)  [View news story]
    Sucker born every minute eh Mr Wells...

    I know nothing of car or battery sectors..

  • A slowdown in China's a good thing, and shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, says Jim Rogers. They've been trying to slow things down there for over two years. With the inflation and property bubble they have right now, if they didn't slow things down they'd be facing a collapse someday. Recessions and slowdowns are just the way the world works, Rogers says, China will emerge even stronger from it. (video)  [View news story]

  • Is The Smart Money Getting Out Of Apple? [View article]
    Apples Oranges....Tents RV's.

    Sure I'll accept the difference.. But if the Apple is so much more, why didn't they co-release a less powerful model ?

  • Activision Unveils 2 New Games [View article]
    I am somewhat disappointed with everygame since MW2.
    Rage, Black ops, etc etc
    I am a pc'er no console for me... consequently the games aren't quite the same anymore. Their made for idiots and the fun factor is not there.
    Too many games are bitten by a vampiric hollywood thus turning them into a collection of cut scenes with some action in between.

    Advantage of ERTS is their sports franchise is bullet proof. Smaller company to be sure...but I like that.

    lastly, over the past 2 years with insane sales and game release subscriptions.... where the stock price? seems low. Is hollywood fleecing the profit off the top?

    hehe I covered my short yesterday....doh...

  • Is This A Bear Market Rally? [View article]
    Wow, love the thread. Learning a bunch.

    Neophyte opinion is you're all both right.

    The bets have to get bigger to cover the old debt..... short term things can race ahead but we are only delaying or exacerbating the problem. 100% of GDP.......should be a cue.
    When I feel depressed and dont embrace the promise of the future... I go here : ( ) Then I just feel dizzy.
