Shares of Netflix soared more than 6% Monday on a report that Verizon Communications is considering buying the troubled movie renter. Verizon is reportedly evaluating whether a purchase of Netflix could provide an entry into the video delivery business, DealReporter said, citing a source close to the matter. The news comes as Netflix continues to struggle from a series of missteps earlier this year when it raised subscription prices and separated its DVD-by-mail service and streaming. Netflix's stock price plunged to a new 52-week low two weeks ago when the company warned it would fall to a loss in 2012 if it failed to boost its bruised customer base

NFLX $78+ gap...the figure mentioned in Bloomy here is $4.6Bil and deal possible by Easter which is about 15% premium or about $11 higher or about a $86 pps
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-12-12/verizon-very-serious-about-interest-in-netflix-bibb-says.html

Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ), the second-largest U.S. phone company, is “very serious” about a bid to acquire online movie provider Netflix Inc. (NFLX), an investment banker said.

Verizon may kick off a bidding war for streaming-video pioneer Netflix that could result in a sale by Easter for about $4.6 billion, said Porter Bibb, managing partner at Mediatech Capital, in a television interview yesterday on “Bloomberg West,” citing unnamed people within Verizon.

“I am hearing rumblings from inside Verizon that they are very serious about either Netflix or something similar,” Bibb said.

Chief Executive Officer Lowell McAdam told an investor conference on Dec. 7 that the company aims to move beyond its Fios TV service into the streaming-video business.

“We continue to look at alternatives,” McAdam said at a UBS investor conference in New York. Los Gatos, California-based Netflix has a market capitalization of $4.17 billion.

Verizon, based in New York, is considering an offer for Netflix because telecommunications companies are concerned they will shoulder the increasing costs of transmitting video over their networks as providers such as Netflix, Amazon.com (AMZN) and Hulu LLC decline to share their profits, Deal Reporter reported earlier today, citing people with knowledge of the matter.

Steve Swasey, a Netflix spokesman, and Torod Neptune, a spokesman for Verizon, declined to comment.

Netflix, which offers subscriptions for video streaming and DVDs by mail, rose 6.2 percent to $75.26 yesterday at the New York close. The stock has fallen 57 percent this year.

Took the gap to $80 short premarket , rumor deflated ..."Today's Netflix (NFLX) Rumors are 100% Garbage "

December 13, 2011 8:13 AM EST



Today's Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) takeover rumors may be as good as some of the B-movies playing on the service... Junk.

Driving today's action in the stock is a report from Bloomberg citing Porter Bibb, of Mediatech Capital, who said Verizon (NYSE: VZ) is "very serious" about a bid for Netflix.

"I am hearing rumblings from inside Verizon that they are very serious about either Netflix or something similar," Bibb said.

For those that don't remember, about one year ago Mr. Bibb said the same things about Sony buying IMAX (Nasdaq: IMAX). "I can confirm that both Sony and Disney are in serious talks with IMAX about a takeover, probably at $40 per share or more," Bibb was quoted as saying.

Needless to say, these Porter Bibb rumors were 100% bunk. We would imagine today's rumors about Netflix are just as credible.
