The video streaming giant, Netflix continues its bull run, buoyed by its original content portfolio and market expansion strategy. However, the current selling pressure on FANG stocks, prompted by the drop in Facebook share prices after the Cambridge Analytica controversy, may slightly offset positions for investors like SRS Investment Management, LLC, Technology Crossover Management VII, Ltd., and Matrix Capital Management Company, LP.
