In today's episode of Consumer Countdown The Motley Fool's consumer goods team plays one of their favorite games: Buy, Sell, or Hold. The rules are simple -- host Mark Reeth presents consumer goods analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly with a tidbit of recent news regarding a company in their sector. The analysts must then decide if they would buy, sell, or hold that company based on the recent news.
First, Sean must decide if he'd buy, sell, or hold Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) based on the success of the company's new movie Gravity. Then, Mike takes a look at Take-Two interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO), which is at the beginning of a legal battle with rapper Daz Dillinger over the use of two of his songs in the new hit game Grand Theft Auto 5. Finally, Sean has to make a call on Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), which is reportedly in talks with cable providers about including the company's service with set-top boxes.
