Netflix… sigh

Netflix’s stock is dropping. Don Reisinger composes in CNET,The other day, Netflix shares closed the day at $70. At one point during the day, Netflix’s shares dropped all the way to $69 prior to transforming around. “The capital issue is quite bothersome.

According to Pachter, the business’s short-and lasting responsibilities “completed about twelve times money and temporary financial investments at the end of the third quarter. “What’s even worse is that Netflix is predicting a loss for every one of 2012. “Without a clear declaration of method or some indication of a path to allow a go back to profitability, we find ourselves drawing numbers from slim air. “That seems like Hastings.
