By increasing the number of shares outstanding, you diminish the earnings per share. Selling shares brings a nice infusion of cash for the company, but "dilutes" the shareholders stock value as stated above. I know the company decided to raise prices, and this triggered a customer backlash, but I have to wonder why they concluded it was worth the risk. I really don't know how they assess the risk in such a situation. As a decision-maker, who would you turn to on your staff to assess the potential loss of customers by raising prices? Is this an accoutant's job? If so, I might need to brush up on my statistical analysis training...

As Luis says, why anyone would pay $228 to buy back their own stock is beyond me. This will make a good case study now that I think about it on cash management and dilution.

What was NFLX thinking! I saw in the news that Blockbuster is trying to take advantage of NFLX misfortunes. NFLX is just wasting the cash (assets), and EPS will not look good for any future outside investors. I am not a big high class company executive, but I would Not have bought the stock at $228 per share of my own company's stock and some outside investors will not too.

Where do you start to talk about Netflix? the arrogance of the company to think that it can raise their prices that high with out any consequences was ridiculous. First, the stock was inflated to begin with and now that customers are fleeing left and right, they are in a lot of trouble. I think they won't go under but they do have hard times ahead. The worst is not over for this company because Blockbuster is trying to make a come back and seems they are doing it at the right time too.

Netflix was not thinking throughly when they rasied there price on there stock and then bought it. Like the professor said Netflixs is now paying for their mistake.
