It’s time to sort out Monday’s hybrid screen, which can be found inside Exodus, and produce a watchlist for the upcoming week. I’ve imported today’s screen to finviz for your viewing pleasure, you may review the results HERE.
From today’s screen, here are eight names I will be watching this week:
Netflix continues to expand its dominance over the average person’s TV and movie consumption. It has now announced a major new feature, which will likely result in more bingeing and less productivity. Bring it on. The company revealed today that some of its most popular content is now available to download. That means one can watch Netflix on the train, in a plane, or walking down a busy street. The downloadable shows and movies can be watched anywhere and anywhere, no Wi-Fi necessary. The update comes at no extra cost to subscribers, either.
The download feature was announced in a statement written by Netflix’s Director of Product Innovation Eddy Wu:
While many members enjoy watching Netflix at home, we’ve often heard they also want to continue their “Stranger Things” binge while on airplanes and other places where Internet is expensive or limited. Just click the download button on the details page for a film or TV series and you can watch it later without an Internet connection.

Bernie Sanders had a lot to say about Donald Trump’s tweeting habits in the latest installment of Conan. I tried to give it a good listen, but he lost me with his climate change rant, which apparently is threatening the existence of the planet.
Whatever the case, he is not happy with The Donald’s tweets:
“I tell you what my take is, first of all it’s delusional. It’s totally insane,” he said. “Nobody believes that who studies elections, or election patterns.”
“This is what is scary about it: When he says that, he’s really sending a signal to Republican [leaders] all over the country. What he’s saying is, we’ve got to suppress the vote.”
AT&T announced a brand new streaming TV solution today called DIRECTV NOW. As the name suggests, this is an initiative launched through their DIRECTV arm, but will be available to everyone starting November 30 for as little as $35 per month.
DIRECT TV now is very much like Playstation Vue or Sling TV in that you subscribe without contract to a set of channels that can be streamed. It’s another cut-the-cord TV service that works on a variety of platforms and through a variety of apps. Plans range from $35 per month up to $70 per month and with channel line-ups ranging from 60+ up to 120+.
What do you guys think? Is it officially time to cut the cord? I like what AT&T is doing here with DirecTV, I may even give it a shot. I’ve had enough of cox cable rapping my ass.
Here’s a daily chart of $T, which is now the owner of DirecTV:
