Netflix Has Been a Media Pioneer, but Is It Past Its Prime?

May 22 marked the 15-year anniversary of the 2002 initial public offering of Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX).

At the time, no one had heard of "House of Cards," and it would be three years before YouTube would put streaming video on the average person's radar.

In that oh-so-distant past, Netflix was a mail-order DVD rental service. Its major innovation was eliminating late fees. Netflix's creative new business model ultimately drove its top competitor Blockbuster Video to a slow, painful death.

Netflix has overhauled its business substantially from its early days, and $1,000 invested in its IPO would be worth $130,000 today. But is Netflix still a good buy?
