The headwinds are beginning to outnumber the tailwinds in the markets.
If you invested $10,000 in Netflix and held on to your position over the last 20 years, your holdings would now be worth over $1,585,000. When Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) went public in 2002, few could have imagined how massively influential and successful it would go on to become. The former rental leader famously turned down a chance to buy out Netflix for $50 million.
When Roald Dahl published his 1977 fiction The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar, it was seen as a sly poke at his critics.

Deeply Andersonian this Dahl is too: a pipe-cleaner figure of strict routine.
