This is a Momo stock which lost it's mojo. 

What's amazing to me is that management was the sole cause of this loss of mojo.  The monumental drop in subscribers was in direct response to their actions.  Had management done nothing or introduced the price increases more gradually, we wouldn't even be having a conversation. 

As if upsetting the streaming customers wasn't enough, Netflix decided to introduce Qwikster to make sure 100% of their customers were not happy.  Seriously, who manages a company this way?  The CEO destroyed billions in value and should be fired immediately.

Are there any other companies that have gone from the darlings of Wallstreet to talk of failure, within a matter of 2 months as the result of nothing more than poor management execution?

What they should have done is keep it the same price (or actually discount it a bit) if you go streaming only or DVD only.

If you want both, instead of twice as much it would be a small upcharge like $2-$3 (like they do when you add BluRay).

After doing things right for such a long time (they were able to kill Blockbuster and Blockbuster even had local stores to compete), this misstep was huge.

Netflix making new lows in after hours trading, now at $69.  See you in the $40s (I thought in 2012 but it could very well happen this year at this rate).  LOOK OUT BELOW!

What's going to happen if VZW buys Netflix?

They might buy eventually, just not now.  But then again, it's not a low barrier to entry business that Netflix plays it so VZW could get into it on their own.  Those are just rumors out there to squeeze shorts.  I still stick to my belief that NetFlix stock is heading into the $40s in 2012.

Still?

I think the next step for Netflix is to try a pay-for-content model like iTunes.

I would gladly pay $1-$2 for a one-time stream of recent DVD releases. This would help them stave off the Redbox barrage.

I know Amazon Prime and Blockbuster On-Demand are something like that but those are on a computer while Netflix is already TV-connected (where I prefer to watch movies) and they should capitalize on that. Redbox already demonstrates people are willing to drive to the grocery store to rent a movie for a low price... what more if they can just download to their TV without the inconvenience?

They will be out of business in 5-10 years...with companies like Apple, Amazon, and Google (not to mention all the cable companies) they don't have a chance.

A 5-10 year forecast?

So bold. :D

In 5-10 years... we could be getting the Internet beamed to our heads directly.

How ironic that Blockbuster may outlive Netflix after all.  Has anyone tried their streaming plan through Dish Network?

I dunno... if Netflix can evolve properly, they'll survive.

They just need to be able to adjust their services to the needs and the technology... like I said, PPV instant content would help. I did some research and although Vudu has tried, Zediva has been closed down so there's not many players who can go up against them except Blockbuster (for which you would need a DISH account to get their content on your TV).

So why has NFLX been over $100 since Jan now?

You mean buy them or get into the space and dominate via Apple TV?
