Covers of the weekend Barron's, from Dow Jones, have a history of moving Monday morning's market, and this is a prime contender — "The Trouble With Netflix: As Disney goes its own way and Amazon looms, shares could drop more than 50%," by Jack Hough:

  • "One of the all-time great story stocks, Netflix (ticker: NFLX) has a plot flaw, one that could cut its share price by more than half by the end of the decade. It is chiefly a hit-renter, not a hit-owner."

Aug. 8, 2005 — "The Situation Room's" debut on CNN wherein the host first said: "I'm Wolf Blitzer and you're in The Situation Room, where news and information from around the world arrive in one place simultaneously!"
