Debunking Netflix stock price propaganda: Subscriber Growth™!

My Debunking BitCoin Propaganda series of articles during the boom-and-bust period of cryptocurrencies was relatively well-read, mainly because it takes a step back from all the noise and carefully dissects the loud cheers and platitudes crypto pumpers were using to drown out rational thought.

Considering the accurate forecasting of those articles, … Read more

Goldman Sachs sets the Netflix trap

The pump-and-dump is on.

Back when BitCoin and other cryptocurrencies were ascending to unprecedented and irrational highs, I churned out article after article detailing all the analysis from first principles why the real valuation of cryptos is zero, and not $20,000/BTC.

I started writing about the cryptocurrency bubble when BTC was hovering around $… Read more

Netflix jumps quarterly always on subscriber numbers, but never on profitability and sustainability

The pack leader in this debt-driven bubble, Netflix, made another 8% leap today with glowing media reports everywhere noting that subscriber growth beat analyst estimates in the latest earnings report.

If there’s any indicator big enough saying how much risky speculation is fueling this stock market, it is today’s wall-to-wall media co… Read more

Thursday Thoughts: the promise for more “free” things and the bursting of bubbles

Any politician should be endlessly ridiculed for using the word “free”

“Free” means without cost, and clearly every “free” thing promised by the government comes at a steep cost — the complete opposite of free.

A double-whammy is in store for Netflix

In my article from several weeks ago, Netflix and BitCoin have disturbing similarities, I conjectured that Netflix will be a big loser in a stock market upheaval:

Founding president Sean Parker exposes Facebook’s psychological exploitation of its users

Considering Mark Zuckerberg has studied psychology and has no remorse in exploiting everyone for his own benefit, Sean Parker’s revelations in a conversation with Axios should come as no surprise to anyone following this blog or other anti-social media trends.

Netflix stock price is its own “house of cards” waiting to fall

Trading at nearly 300 times earnings, the debt-fueled stock market has placed a considerably high valuation on Netflix.

Netflix is a microcosm of the world. Just as most consumers and nations are debt ridden, overly speculative, and at the peak of irrational exuberance, so is Netflix.

The Yahoo! and Equifax hacks teach the Internet a valuable lesson, but the students aren’t listening

Yahoo! recently revealed that all of its 3 billion accounts were compromised, up from its initial estimate of 1 billion.

“Whether it’s 1 billion or 3 billion is largely immaterial. Assume it affects you,” Curry said. “Privacy is really the victim here.”
