Why I Own Netflix Stock

Netflix shares have more than quadrupled in value from last summer's 52-week lows, but the stock is as controversial as ever. A long-term content deal with Walt Disney may set the company apart from a rising tide of competition -- but the deal doesn't take effect for another couple of years.
