Here is my 5minutes Netflix analysis and critique of the quote from this presentation, always do your own homework even if it take 5minutes:

''I like investments in which I think my downside is limited '' Well...NFLX... P/B at 4.4, PE at 28.4 !!!!! At least 75% downsize risk sound to me like not really limited­.....

''Lots of talk about competition, but very little is currently detectable'': well.... those data are from 2011....

Amazon is certainly even more risky as a stock because the price is really overprice but to my point of view the business is much better...

"Why Netflix Is a Better BusinessThan Amazon":

"Higher margins, profits, and free cash flow"

Reuters Data:


Total Debt to Equity (MRQ)= 58.12%


Total Debt to Equity (MRQ)=0

Customer satisfaction level, AMAZON vs NETFLIX

Disclaimer i'm short on Amazon and Netflix

Sorry for being rude, i could also be wrong, at 4.4 P/B i see this really risky and far from value investing.
