What's Ahead for Netflix in 2014

Shares of online streaming pioneer Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX  ) put pretty much every other publicly traded company to shame in 2013.

For starters, Netflix has been the best-performing stock in the S&P 500 year to date by a country mile, rising nearly 300% as we head into the year's end. In fact, Netflix has been so head-and-shoulders better than the rest of the market that it's actually beaten Best Buy, the second best stock in the S&P, by an impressive 60 percentage points. (Note: The video below incorrectly states 100 percentage points.)
