Could it also have to do with accusations of other companies. Have a smaller stock price per share allows for it to be more easily distributed. If they buy Netflix... they can give share holders 4 shares for ever one instead of .5 of share. Just a thought, sorry if its been stated already...
Maybe someone can comment?
Go talk to a stock broker that understands your position and what you expect to gain from your investment.
Netflix is one stock I personally would stay away from. I just don't like these stocks that trade with outrageously high P/E ratios at their stage of being a publicly traded company. I can't see their business model having drastic profits, they don't make anything, they just rent videos. That's a business I wouldn't get involved with since there are a lot of competitors. They don't have any patents that I'm aware of, they don't make a product that's unique and special. It's a VERY low margin business. I'd personally stay away unless you really know how to play the ups and downs of this stock.
