    If Netflix can go back on its plans, why can't HP do the same?


    Netflix CEO Reed Hastings: Uh, Forget Everything We Said

    Netflix CEO Reed Hastings: Uh, Forget Everything We Said
    By Wall St. Cheat Sheet

    Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) shares are on a roll after the company announced changing its mind on Qwikster, and that DVDs are going to remain combined with the streaming video company. In other words, customers have reversed plans for a spin-off.
    According to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, writing on the company blog, “it is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs.”
    The news continues to reflect a major change-shift in digital television and movies. Now, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) will have to go back to the drawing board on competing with Netflix.
    NFLX (NASDAQ:NFLX) is trading at $124.79 today, up 6.47%. Shares are down 21.67% in one year. The stock’s trading range for the year is between $107.63 and $304.79.

    Because HP is a stagnant, prehistoric dinosaur; while Netflix (even though they've made some bad moves over the last few months) is sprite, flexible and always thinking of the next move.

    That's why.

    No, it's because HP is only thinking about the next quarter.

    Some beancounter: "If we dump webOS, we can increase profit by 1.27% for the next quarter."
    Leo: "Great, let's do it."
    Todd Bradley: "But mobile is the future of computing!"
    Leo: "But come on, Todd, 1.27%!!"
