'Fast Money' Recap: Headwinds for Netflix?

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The markets were down on Monday on lingering concerns about Greece's debt situation.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 17.10, or 0.13%, to 12,845.13. The S&P 500 declined 0.57, or 0.04%, to 1,344.33. The Nasdaq lost 3.67, or 0.13%, to 2901.99.

Melissa Lee, the moderator of CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, turned the trading panel's attention to Coinstar (CSTR), which was up 15% in afterhours trading after agreeing to buy NCR's (NCR - Get Report) entertainment assets.

Under the $100 million deal, Coinstar, which operates Redbox's DVD rental kiosks, will be getting NCR's DVD kiosks, retailer contracts and DVD inventory. The two companies have also entered a strategic supplier arrangement. The deal coincides with a Redbox announcement that it would be entering into a subscription-based streaming partnership with Verizon (VZ).

Coinstar's twin moves are viewed as a threat to Netflix (NFLX).

Joe Terranova applauded the deal, saying Coinstar, which reported excellent earnings and guidance today, is positioning itself to do all the right things. He expressed concerns, though, about the possible drain on free cash flow.

Guy Adami said he liked Coinstar's operating margins, adding its valuation is not that rich.

Michael Pachtner, an analyst with Wedbush Securities who was in on the Coinstar conference call, praised the NRC deal, calling it "huge news." He said Coinstar officials commented in the conference call on interchange fees, a price increase, the Verizon partnership and Netflix attrition.

Pachtner said the stock, which was up 15% in afterhours, should drift up to $72. He has an outperform rating on Coinstar.

Brian Kelly said he was following the money and putting his money on content providers such as Walt Disney (DIS - Get Report) and Comcast (CMCSA - Get Report).

Options trader Scott Nations said options activity in Coinstar was nine times heavier than normal, with call activity outpacing put activity.

Lee shifted to a Morgan Stanley report that said that emerging markets were the best place to park investor cash, followed by Europe and the U.S.
