20 million, in 2010. Another factor to watch is the outlook
for Netflix's content acquisition costs, as growth for the company
has become a bit more expensive. We also take a look at the outlook

Company of the Day
Netflix will discuss Q1 2011 earnings after market close. The
key trend to watch will be the potential for sustained subscriber
growth momentum. Netflix launched a discounted streaming-only plan

Forecast of the Day
P&G embarked on a goal to acquire a billion additional
consumers by 2014/15, which naturally put its focus on the world's
two most populous nations - China and India. To cater to these
high-growth but low-income level consumer markets, P&G has had
to launch low-priced and smaller-sized variants of its products,
expand its distribution network and enter more product categories
in these countries.
