Netflix shares took a pretty substantial tumble today on news that Amazon was jumping into the streaming video subscription business.

This is just round 1 in a long fight between the companies. For now, it’s hard to envision Netflix subscribers quitting for Amazon, but in the long run Netflix is going to have to deal with a tough new foe. 

If you’re looking for a bull case for Netflix keep in mind it does one thing — video rentals and streaming. It’s not going to lose its only battle with out putting up a serious fight.
