Default Holy shit, netflix stock just jumped like crazy

The stock price is up 12.7% in post market trading following the Q1 report. While financial results for the quarter were mixed, they showed that Netflix had 62.3 million global streaming subscribers at the end of the quarter — about 500,000 more than expected. It had 41.4 million domestic streaming customers at the end of March, up 16.0% from the same time last year. Outside the U.S., Netflix had 20.9 million streaming subs, +64.6%.

Is Netflix Worth More Than CBS? Wall Street Says It Is After Strong Q1 Report
The Street’s been enthusiastic about the stock, driving its price up 38.9% so far in 2015. CEO Reed Hastings says he’ll propose a stock split to make it more accessible. If the after-market trading prices hold tomorrow, then Netflix shares will hit an all-time high, rising well above $500 for the first time.

There are some crazy ones right now. I have been riding Denny's for a few months now. It seams like every other day is a new 52 week high.

I've just converted my retirement accounts into a roth IRA and have been peeking at some stocks' performance and man...some are just nutty.

Google, Netflix, Tesla, Intel look like some good long term options, just wish I'd started this a couple years ago. Tesla's up 400% from what it was 2 years ago.

I'm expecting theirs is going to shoot through the roof when the Model III is officially announced and then made available.

Its always cool to see some companies pop on earnings, but the fundamentals are not always there either.
Always chasing returns and always trying to beat the market will just lead to disappointment.

I just read an article about a week or two ago that said investors are betting against Tesla right now.

Yup, read the same, but I just bought 8 shares regardless. I'm going to gamble on their success. Don't know how they couldn't be hugely successful with the Model III planned in the next couple of years.

Threw some money at Intel, Tesla, Netflix, Google and Cerner.

Just imagine if the bluster about Clarkson, Hammond and May jumping to Netflix to make a Top Gear like show was true.

Hopefully for long term keeping. Blue Chips are not generally a way to "make money". They are a hedge against inflation and a long term hold.

Not sure how far down the rabbit hole you are going, but make sure to start looking at valuations, multiples and P/E ratios. Those are the items you want to make sure you are reviewing when considering purchases.

If you want a pretty solid dividend paying stock(s) look at Nordson, Ferrelgas (sp?) and Southwest Airlines. Both have consistently paid dividends over the last 20 years.

Tesla's up 5% today to 219 so far, a new bank posted a target of 245, and an update from Telsa is expected on 4/30, probably will increase then too. Should have put more money in them.

How's that work? I have an IRA with Fidelity too but had no idea I could do my stock trading through them. I've been using USAA but their online interface still sucks for stocks.

Do you do it with Fidelity online or by phone?

I did it by phone initially with only 13k since that was the excess I had outside of their managed option. I just had them do the math to split the stock among my picks.

Fit bit stock went live last week, I sold off my google shares as they were under performing and very expensive so I wasn't making much headway, invested those in 43 shares of fit bit....bought high so I'm hoping the trend keeps up today. Watching it closely.

Here's a quick update on how my netflix and tesla stock has treated me since i bought in. Should have bought more. Up almost 20% in Netflix and 30% in Tesla.

Column headers would be Stock , current price, today's stock price increase, today's total stock price increase, today's % increase, total value price increase since purchased , total % increase since purchased

Still sticking with transportation stocks, preferred so on top of the 30% growth since the the gas prices came back up I get dividends.

Who has the cheapest trading fees? I am thinking about opening an investment account that I can just play around with.

surprisingly, my Cerner stock hasn't been doing well. I'm down 2% since I bought in, but I bought a hefty portion of shares as I have long term confidence in them.

Fidelity right now is free for me but I don't know what the stipulations around that are...I'm sure I have a limited number of free trades and since selling the google and buying the fit bit is the first trade I've done since I started a couple months ago, I'd guess that's not going to mean a lot to most folks that want to do this seriously.

Explain to me the dividends.....I wasn't worried about them since these are long term investments and in a Roth, so I didn't ask for clarification.
