Shares of AMC Networks (NASDAQ: AMCX  ) are up some 36% year to date on the strength of its award-winning programming. Take The Walking Dead, a ratings winner so big that DISH Network (NASDAQ: DISH  ) agreed to end a long-standing legal dispute to bring it back.

And yet AMC isn't the only up-and-coming content house. Time Warner (NYSE: TWX  ) and CBS (NYSE: CBS  ) have spent years developing edgy original programming via their HBO and Showtime networks. Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX  ) is in on the game, too. What makes AMC so special that it deserves the rally it's enjoying right now? I answer that question and more in the video below.

Great content has never been more valuable than right now. Can Netflix cash in before the rush is over? This is a must-know issue for investors, which is why we've released a 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.

    Hi Tim thanks for the video. Can Netflix cash in on original content? The simple answer is no one knows until they see House Of Cards and the new Arrested Development. From a piece we can judge the whole. You can hype a movie or show all you want but in the end - nobody knows if it's going to work until audiences see it. If those shows are a bust Netflix will be in the same place it is today. If they're a huge success they'll be the catalyst investors need for the stock to launch back up. Just my two cents.
