Netflix shares vs Netflix fees

If you had spent the monthly subscription fee to purchase shares of Netflix, what would your portfolio be worth now?





Last updated July 4, 2020.

Data obtained from http://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/charts/NFLX/prices/netflix-inc-stock-price-history and updated on the first of every month.

The average time spent watching TV is 90 minutes per household. The last column is the number of hours of living you would have saved if you didn't have a Netflix subscription. It's even worse if you count all the time watching ANY video: Neilsen says the average american watches 4.3h every day. Imagine you spent that time brushing up on your social skills. Read a book, play an instrument, phone a friend. Get a life!
