Quick Thought on Blu-Ray



February 19, 2013 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: NFLX , AMZN , OUTR

While recently debating the viability of Coinstar as a long-term option a thought occured to me.  Even though the sales of DVD's are down, Blu-Ray sales are continuing to grow.  This is significant because you cannot stream blu-ray.  So even the DVD sales might be down, blu-ray players and sales continue to grow.  A bit of a comfort for Coinstar and the kiosks.  Looking at Coinstars 4th quarter earnings this is evident as blu-ray sales doubled.  Just a quick late night thought-more on this later.
