No. 3 - Netflix In Flux

Friday, 8 Jun 2007 | 8:32 PM ET

The digital revolution will again take center stage on Thursday at Amazon's (AMZN) shareholder meeting. Investors will surely ask if the world's biggest online retailer will buyout movie rental service, Netflix (NFLX). With two volatile stocks –where’s the fast money?

Note: Tim Seymour of Red Star Asset Management substitutes for Eric Bolling on this show. We call him "The Ambassador."

CNBC Media Reporter Julia Boorstin joins the guys for this conversation.

Top Story #3: Amazon & Netflix?
The Fast Money guys discuss the rumors that Amazon is buying Netflix



Julia says NFLX has a lot of things Amazon might want including 6.8 million subscribers who spend consistent money on media and she says NFLX has good technology. She adds the NFLX stock is so low, it could be appealing.

Pete Najarian doesn’t think any company other than Amazon will have an interest in NFLX and if the deal doesn’t go through, Pete says, “Netflix is toast.” He adds investors holding calls in NFLX should take profits, immediately.

Jeff Macke doesn’t think Jeff Bezos will buy Netflix because it wouldn’t be a good use of cash. He wants investors to stay away from this stock.
