Netflix Soar Big!

It was just back in October that many thought Netflix subscriber growth was at a standstill and that there could be a massive wall holding the company from hitting new levels. Yesterday Netflix reported it's forth QUarter results for the 2014 year. Subscriber forecasts were not what were expected however  adding 1.9 million domestic customers and over 2.4 million oversea customers. With this being said that is just over 8% higher guidance than was originally thought back in October. Total sales killed it with a 27% year over year increase to $ 1.4 Billion with a B. Bottom line reported earnings at around $0.72 per diluted share. However the big news that spiked shares over 17% on the day were not the numbers. Netflix's own management expects to complete its major global expansion in two years. How huge is this? Well this about it there intending on offering there streaming services in nearly 200 plus contries by the end of 2016, a significant increase from today's 50. 

Since I have been a subscriber now of Netflix's for 2 plus years, I am still a firm believer in that this company is on the brink of fully assisting in the collapse of the cable providers. Not only do I foresee this company someday having 300 Million plus subscribers I see this company breaking new barriers for a subscription style business model. The future looks vary bright for this young company.

What are your feelings ? 

Do you currently use Netflix and if not Why Not.?

Currently shares are trading hands for just over $409.00 per diluted share. Over the past 52 weeks shares have traded hands for as low as $299.50 and as high as $489.29. With just over 60 M shares outstanding to the public this is a small cap investment that should be put on your Watch Lists. Is a new 52 week high coming ?

Why I Like JetBlue Airways!

JetBlue Airways Headed to new Highs?

JetBlue Airways Corporation (NASDAQ:JBLU) -  a passenger airline that operates primarily on point-to-point routes with its fleet of 120 Airbus A320 aircraft and 49 EMBRAER 190 aircrafts.
 (NASDAQ:JBLU) shares over the past 52 weeks have exchanged hands for as low as $7.61, and traded as high as $15.61. Currently shares are trading hands for around $15.15 of which is around 14 times Potential Earnings. With under 300 M shares outstanding and a current market cap of 4.23 B shares of JetBlue may be heading for a bit of a pull back before racing higher to new Highs. YTD shares are up over $6.60 per diluted share over 77% gains. As I am a lover of the airline industry, and with recent oil prices falling this company is well positioned to benefit dramatically.

Why a Roth IRA conversion might be a smart idea!

When people think about saving for retirement many think that it's just opening account and you're done. Well if you want to get the best bang for each dollar you save take charge you need to be proactive in managing it. Depending on your financial situation converting some of your funds from your traditional IRA into a Roth IRA could be a very smart strategy over the long-haul. One reason being that you can withdraw your funds from your Roth IRA tax-free. Another great reason is that the Roth IRA is excluded from the required minimum distribution, or withdrawal amount when you do decide to retire. Finally if you're ineligible to contribute to a traditional or Roth IRA due to income limitations, you can still contribute to a "nondeductible" traditional IRA and then process what's known as a "backdoor" or the Roth conversion. 

Do you have a 401(k) or a Roth IRA account?

Have you ever heard of the back door technique?
