Netflix earnings fall though streaming grows

There's an odd set of numbers being posted today by Netflix as they report their earnings for the first quarter of 2012, including losses in DVD, gains in streaming, and a global revenue drop from this past quarter.

Is Google’s Stock Split or Apple’s Dividend Stock better for investors?

Is Google’s Stock Split or Apple’s Dividend Stock better for investors?

This week we've come to understand that Google has a plan for their investors which includes splitting the stocks they've got currently 2-for-1, this reminding the public of a seemingly similar deal put up by Apple earlier this year. In fact Google's deal and Apple's deal are both positive for the stockholder, but otherwise don't really share a whole lot of similarities. While Google's offering includes adding extra stocks to the public pool, Apple's strategy actually has them taking stocks away in the long run, creating a situation where it's less likely that the public's ability to purchase stocks wont create diluted prices.
