Fool TV: Popping Off About Netflix

Members of Motley Fool Stock Advisor and Motley Fool Rule Breakers had something to crow about last week, when David Gardner's Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX  ) recommendation achieved a rare "spiffy-pop" designation. What the heck is a "spiffy-pop," you ask? That's when a stock's price rises more in one day than you paid for it back when you bought it. Netflix jumped $13.27 and broke through the $100 mark on a sterling earnings report. Patient investors who smelled a winner when the company's stock was trading at less than $12.98 in 2004 were certainly feeling spiffy about the pop that single-day move put in their portfolios.

Netflix became the fourth spiffy-pop Stock Advisor members have enjoyed, and the third Rule Breakers members have celebrated over the course of the past four years. David points out some of the characteristics that make up these big gainers ... and talks a little smack about his bold new screen name.

    I cant find a link but I distinctly remember TMF recommending you sell NFLX due to competition from Amazon and Walmart.

    You distinctly remember wrong. NFLX was originally rec'd by David in 2003 then sold after gaining >100% so quickly. It feel back before his original price point so he then rec'd again repeatedly in 2004-2007 during the various drops due to the Walmart/Amazon/Blockbuster scare of the day. Given today's price, David's again up 200-600% on these picks on his still active recommendation.

    I thank David every day (silently) for his NFLX rec's along with MVL, PIXR and other fantastic rec's he's made.

    Hi clanza875,

    Keep in mind that our website writers don't follow an official company line, and their analysis is not associated with our newsletters. You might have read a negative article on Netflix at some point on the Fool's website, but that doesn't affect the recommendation of the Stock Advisor team.

    Sounds like I remember correctly then, as you state yourself that he recommending selling after gaining 100%. Its certainly hard to argue with that logic. I was unaware that he reopened the position later.
