Hedge fund manager David Einhorn said that chipmaker Micron Technology Inc. (MU) would be worth more than Netflix Inc. (NFLX) within the next few years.

Einhorn said semiconductor technology such as Micron Technology was “bright” for the next several years.  In contrast, Netflix had “pushed its promises into the distant future.”
