  • Redbox gets green light from investors

    What a difference a month makes.

    Redbox parent Coinstar (CSTR) was being dragged through the mud last month after it issued a much weaker-than-expected outlook for the first quarter.

    But guess what? Redbox really came through. Coinstar reported earnings per share that trumped forecasts by a wide margin.

    Revenue fell short of forecasts and Coinstar's operating margin declined,but Redbox gained market share and its revenue rose 1% as the company added new MORE

  • SEC: OK to use Twitter, Facebook for announcements

    Netflix CEO Reed Hastings caused a stir last year after he revealed that Netflix's monthly online viewing had exceeded one billion hours on his Facebook page instead of a press release or public filing. That raised concerns about whether social media posts were in compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation Fair Disclosure (Regulation FD) rules.

    But following an investigation prompted by Hastings' post, the SEC has decided it's MORE

  • Stock market 'leaders' are really losers

    The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of Paul R. La Monica. Other than Time Warner, the parent of CNNMoney, Abbott Laboratories and AbbVie, La Monica does not own positions in any individual stocks.

    The proverbial "they" say that the cream rises to the top. Well, "they" clearly haven't looked at the stock market this year.

    Stocks are about to wrap up a stellar first quarter. The Dow has hit MORE

  • Can anything stop Netlfix stock?

    How's this for a House of Cards? Netflix (NFLX) is the best-performing stock in the S&P 500 so far this year. Shares have more than doubled as investors have once again become optimistic about the company's growth prospects.

    Netflix rose nearly 5% Tuesday after Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves boosted his price target on the stock to $225. That's up from his earlier forecast of $160 and is nearly 20% higher MORE

  • Lean out: Investors still don't like Facebook

    Netflix (NFLX) announced Wednesday that users can now share their movie and TV show viewing history on Facebook. That news helped boost shares of Netflix, already the best-performing stock in the S&P 500 this year, by 6%.

    But Facebook? Not so much.

    Facebook's (FB) stock fell more than 2%, continuing a slide since the social network reported fourth-quarter earnings back in January. Shares are now down 10% since that report.

    It's an understatement MORE

  • Redbox is no Netflix: Coinstar stock plunges

    Redbox is not Netflix. And Redbox parent Coinstar (CSTR) clearly doesn't have the momentum of Netflix's stock.

    Shares of Coinstar tumbled 8% Friday after the company issued a much weaker-than-expected earnings and sales forecast for the first quarter late Thursday.

    But Netflix (NFLX) has nearly doubled this year while Coinstar is down year-to-date and is closer to its 52-week low than its 52-week high.

    That's why some traders on StockTwits were labeling the MORE

    Shares have nearly doubled so far this year and aren't far below where they were in mid-September of 2011.

  • Netflix is still way overvalued

    The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of Paul R. La Monica. Other than Time Warner, the parent of CNNMoney, Abbott Laboratories and AbbVie, La Monica does not own positions in any individual stocks.

    Netflix investors have a reason to be in a good mood: Shares of the online video company were trading over $100 Tuesday morning. They haven't closed above the century mark since last April.

    The stock is MORE

  • Netflix gets new rival, shares rally

    Netflix has more competition, but investors seem to think that the streaming video market is big enough for both of them.

    Coinstar, the parent of Redbox, and Verizon (VZ) said Tuesday that they had reached an agreement with movie studios and device makers to "bring thousands of popular movies to consumers at home and on the go."

    The joint venture, called Redbox Instant, will cost $8 per month, which is what Netflix MORE
