Is Netflix About to Fall From Its Perch?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn discuss topics around the investing world.

The past 12 months have been a roller-coaster ride for streaming provider Netflix. Since peaking at slightly over $300 a share, the company saw the price crumble to a low of nearly $60 toward the end of last year. Always resilient, the company rallied strongly from the Qwikster debacle, and its share price nearly doubled in three months. Recently, however, Netflix investors endured another selloff on news of weak subscriber growth going forward. 

This kind of anxiousness could reflect a new normal for the streaming giant. Over the past 12 months, several established media and entertainment companies have released their own versions of an online streaming service. Watch the video to see whether Netflix can continue to lead the way in streaming from here on out.
