written by reader NFLX, still being pushed by Motley Fool?

By wdgrogan, July 18, 2019

What are the latest thoughts on Netflix? The Fool was promoting it not long ago, what is the current belief in it after yesterday’s short coming?

I was an early subscriber to the service, and will continue up to a point
My breaking point is I am becoming less enamored with the product
First, I do not like to read a movie, because it is in subtitles
I find fewer and fewer Class A movies — Most Netflix movies are weak in plotting
Series are fine, but most last way too long and begin “jumping the shark” to justify more shows
I like a series to cease after about 4 or 5 new seasons, because I know the plot will become harder to follow and plain weirder

The bottom line is Netflix is going to have a harder time
Jumping into joining lefty politics won’t help
I honestly do not want to know the CEO’s politics
I prefer a company making money, then the CEO can donate money to the “Al Gores” without telling me how “Caring” s/he is!

I’ve never been able to justify owning it (to my detriment), but haven’t seen the Motley Fool promote it in teaser ads in recent years — it is the top-performing “teaser” stock of all time since it was originally used to entice Stock Advisor subscribers back in 2007 (at a split-adjusted $2.50 or so, it is up roughly 12,000% — we track all past teaser stocks at stockgumshoe.com/tracking).
