The Road to the Next Netflix
As you may know, my readers and I have been making huge
profits investing in
Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX)
. I first recommended Netflix in December 2011 when the stock was
at $71. With Netflix shares now at $406, the stock has soared
471% since my recommendation.
That performance was enough to turn a $10,000 investment into
I regularly hear from readers asking where they can find "the
next Netflix." The reason is understandable - big profits from
stocks like Netflix can be life changing.
With that in mind, I decided to create our own March Madness
bracket for stock picks in response to readers who are seeking
big profits from America's most promising growth stocks.
Today, Netflix is widely viewed as the most successful

mistakes … but that the huge drop in the stock price was far
overdone. With a market capitalization of just $4 billion,
Netflix was a small company that could easily be bought by Amazon
or Apple (today the company is worth $24 billion).
In Netflix, I saw more than a cheap stock. I saw a company
that was largely misunderstood and on the cusp of rapid growth.
The company's streaming video business was just starting to
really grow. And the fact that Netflix had recently beaten out
HBO in a bidding war for
Cards was a sure sign that the company was going to be the new
force in original programming.
It was clear to me that Netflix was the cable TV network of
the future. And by investing in the beaten down stock
that transformation became a reality would be extremely
