Amazon: Market cap $135.12 billion with an average P/E of 2,112, based on Monday's trading. Revenue is projected to grow 21.80% this year and 21.40% next year. Earnings are estimated to increase 1,055.60% this year, 234.90% next year and continue at the rate of 36.33% annually for the next five years.

Hastings Entertainment: Market cap of only $30.77 million with a loss: Revenue is projected to shrink 4.40% this year and another 4.70% next year. Earnings are estimated to increase by 28.90% this year, 79.00% next year and continue to increase at 7.00% annually for the next five years.

Barnes & Noble: Market cap of $1.09 billion, but a loss in earnings. Sales projected to decrease by 6.10% this year and another 2.70% next year with earnings going up by 60.80% this year but decreasing by 27.90% next year and continuing to decrease by 167.10% annually for the next five years.

Summary

Clearly Netflix is in a class of its own and can't be compared with others in the industry. The stock is bouncing back from a bad place but is very popular with both the individual and professional investor. After a rise of 327% in the past year, the major portion of the gain may be over, but for those already in position, or willing to take a short-term chance, I advise watching the 100-day moving average, or the more sensitive 14-day turtle channel to decide where to place stop-loss orders or mental exit points:
