The Options Play on Netflix

The following video is part of a special series in which Motley Fool analyst Austin Smith and "Options Whiz" Alex Pape discuss how to make 2012 the year YOU master the market.

In this edition, Austin and Alex talk Netflix.

To counter this, Alex offers an options strategy to limit downside while offering attractive gains.
