What Icahn's Stake in Netflix Means to Investors

The man, the legend, Carl Icahn revealed a substantial 10% stake in Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX  ) this week. Though Icahn has not been successful with similar companies in the past (ex: Blockbuster), there may be a method to his madness after all.

Even though Netflix has fallen from its previously lofty valuation of around $300 a share, it's risen more than 40% since early August, and rewarded recent shareholders handsomely. 

However, the real question is whether these gains can continue. With direct competition such as, Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN  ) , Google (Nasdaq: GOOG  ) , and Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT  )  Netflix's growth will only be more difficult in the future.

Looking in the rear view mirror like this is fine, but the real question people want answered is "is Netflix a buy today?" We'll help you uncover the answer in our brand-new premium report on Netflix. Inside, you'll learn about the key opportunities and risks facing the company, as well as reasons to buy or sell the stock.
