Selling video downloads boosts your show’s ratings. THAT little fact is sure to mean more shows for sale via iTunes, which in turn will mean more sales, and up goes AAPL‘s share price. This is one of those “buy-and-hold” deals.
Me, there are some music videos from my childhood I wish I could see again, and would pay to do so. (And not just while in a buying splurge like yesterday.)
Of course, GOOGle is after the same thing, (they currently show all of 72 music videos in their collection. Tip of the iceberg, anyone?) and they have a large variety of other reasons to buy… but I’m trying to get over the emotional hurdle of their current $430 share price. Maybe they’ll hit $500 and split a few times, and then I’ll be kicking myself. (I didn’t kick myself much for missing the window on that NetFlix jump, though. I think losses probably hurt a lot more than missed opportunities.)
All of this interest in stock, and I still don’t have an account open.
