Street’s Darling: Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), Groupon Inc (NASDAQ:GRPN)
Lakeway, NY — (Market News Call) — 10/11/2013 — Specialpennystockalert.com, an investment community with a special focus on updating investors with recent news on the U.S. stock market, issues news alert on Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), Groupon Inc (NASDAQ:GRPN).
Cable pioneer John Malone opined that firms should form a group for creating a rival to Netflix, Inc.(NASDAQ:NFLX) which would deliver programming on the internet on national basis.
Malone said that cable firms should see to it that the problem of high programming costs is resolved by acquiring content for Internet-based service under one brand.
Malone pointed out that cable history works together and he referred to funding and creation of HBO making everyone rich. A national Internet-based TV service may help cable industry capture market share from telecommunications and satellite competitors giving boost to smaller firms lacking infrastructure.
Malone opined that if cable comes up with a revolutionising product which can give competition to Netflix, it can augment appetite as an investor to put in money through consolidation. The baron’s media holding company has investment in cable provider Charter Communications and gave an offer for Time Warner Cable but was rejected.
Malone praised CEO of Netflix Reed Hastings on the business model stating that the model was big enough to buy exclusive national content at good prices, which cable industry has not been able to do.
Shares of Groupon In c(NASDAQ:GRPN) are off almost 20% after hitting 52-week high three weeks back but this may just be the start. The positivity surrounding the firm in the last one year has been misplaced as Wall Street estimates for the deal giver.
The estimate of the firm’s adjusted profit is 1 cent a share for quarter three which is down from 5 cents a share three months ago. No one is expecting quarter three income for the firm.
There is also consensus that the firm’s adjusted profit for the year would be 12 cents a share.
The firm is still safer than Facebook or Linkedin on the surface. But, the problem is that the company has not been able to operate profitably consistently.
