Netflix Was No Surprise, VectorVest Saw it Coming

VectorVest issued a SELL rating for NFLX on 1/5/22 at $562.52, with a Value of only $385.91 per share.

As of April 20, 2022, Netflix (NFLX) has plummeted from $567.52 to $226.50 since VectorVest’s SELL rating on January 5, 2022. That’s a 60.09% loss in 3½  months!

How does VectorVest do it?

  1. VectorVest calculates an exclusive Stop-Price for each stock, every day. It’s your line in the sand.
  2. VectorVest provides a Buy, Sell or Hold rating for every stock, every day.
    1. a. When a stock drops below the stop-price, it receives a sell rating.

Another warning sign.

VectorVest calculates the value of every stock, every day. When price is significantly higher than value, there is an increased likelihood that the stock could crash during a market correction. In the case with Netflix, VectorVest’s calculated value was $385.91 on January 5, 2022. Remember, NFLX closed at $567.52 that day, so it was extremely overvalued. Value is computed from forecasted earnings per share, forecasted earnings growth, profitability, interest, and inflation rates.

Pro tip: Buy safe, undervalued stocks that are rising in price, in a rising market.


In November 2021, I knew to sell almost all of my stocks right before the crash.

And this wasn’t lucky timing. I actually received advance notice that the crash was coming.

You see, I have what you’d probably call an unfair advantage when it comes to investing.

No, I don’t use a money manager or anything like that. Like many investors, I manage my own portfolio.

But thanks to VectorVest, the crazy market activity we’re seeing right now doesn’t ever cause me to lose a minute of sleep. VectorVest guides me every step of the way.

As early as November 5, 2021 VectorVest’s Market Timing Indicators were signaling an overbought market.

On November 12, 2021, VectorVest published, “while the Price of the VectorVest Composite (VVC) moved higher, our market timing indicators did not. This Bearish divergence suggests that downside risk outweighs upside potential.”

On November 19, 2021, VectorVest published, “Inflation and interest rate fears took hold this week and the Price of the VectorVest Composite (VVC) fell $1.07 per share…, if the market continues to move lower, we could receive a Confirmed Down (C/Dn) situation as early as this Monday.”

VectorVest went on to say: “You do not want to ignore the next Confirmed Down signal… Now is not the time to be complacent. Take Action, reduce your exposure. Tighten up your stop criteria. Protect Profits. The Confirmed Down is an alarm.”

On November 22, 2021, VectorVest published, “We have a Confirmed Down situation.” That’s the red down arrow you see on the chart above, labelled CONFIRMED MARKET DOWN.

This signal alone could have saved you thousands in your portfolio.

Large losses can be devastating…

With VectorVest, you can avoid losses like these. The Netflix Sell Rating and plummet that followed was not a fluke… this happens over and over again. VectorVest issued a sell rating before these stocks dropped. This type of guidance allows you to lock in profits and minimize losses, so you have more money to invest when the market turns back up.
