MASSIVELY BULLISH!!!!!!!!!!! Sending condolences to all my POOR sweet amateur Zillow, Dow, and Nasdaq BASHER SUCKERS and BASHER RETARDOS, per the GUARANTEED WIPE OUT of most of your 2015 PUTS.... much DESERVED!!!!! LOL
WARNING WARNING WARNING: Would not be surprised to see the great Zilllow receive a TO offer at any moment...a price well in excess of 140 per share!!!! Sending condolences in advance to my POOR sweet amateur ZILLOW BASHER SUCKERS and RETARDOS, for the TOTAL WIPE OUT of most of their ZILLOW 2015 PUT options....very much DESERVED!!!! LOL
WARNING: the PIG FARM known as GREECE has ZERO negative impact upon the USA....and every experienced smarter market pro knows that FACT.....nothing but a BOGUS "crisis," contrived by the slimy wall street club for purposes of WRITING gazillions of WORTHLESS PUTS in Zillow, Dow, and Nasdaq favorites....along with WRITING gazillions of WORTHLESS CALL options in the DYING golds/silvers....and dumping them all into the hands of amateur SUCKERS! Girls, try NOT to be SCAMMED again....during this Dow and Nasdaq SUPER BULL market, 95% of the time, the early morning BOGUS red action turns to GREEN, by market close or the next day at the latest! Analogously, the early AM green action in the USELESS golds/silvers turns RED by market close or the next day at the latest....and ALL DEADCAT gains in the gold/silver TRASH are ALWAYS PUNY gains, in percentage terms, incapable of any kind of sustainable upside action, and typically ALL gold/silver DEADCAT GAINS are ERASED in a heartbeat!! Girls, EDUCATE yourselves, re-read my usual GENIUS posts, far far far superior than anything you will ready by the inherited money ivy league airheads who overpopulate wall street!!!!
Oh on second thought, if they were smart they would go after one of those Manhattan real estate search websites that my grandson told me about. But I doubt that they are smart enough to do something like that. More likely Zillow would go after Nathans Finess so you can eat a hot dog while you read your Zestimate. Ron
Love you surbiton99. You are right on the money. Guggenheim does not have to have a "Chinese wall" between their retail business and their research business. They don't have any retail business. So they can get away with this kind of absurdity. They must smell corporate finance business and want in. But what corporate finance business? That's the part that eludes me. Maybe Zillow is planning an acquisition to create excitement for their stock, I could easily see Guggenheim becoming aware of something like that. But I am only guessing. I am not a certified genius like dolf,nacht. Ron.
Good question, especially since Guggennheim have a very small position in Zillow with only 4,631 shares according to the March 31 filing after disposing of 10,256 shares in the 1st quarter of 2015. It will be interesting to see the SEC Form 13F Filing for June 30 to see if they have increased their position in Zillow and decided to give it a pump. OR, maybe they are bidding to participate in some future funding requirement that Zillow might be planning.
It's a three day weekend and I have time to do things like this. Guggenheim gave Zillow a head up. So who is Guggenheim?
According to Wikipedia, Guggenheim is a global investment advisory service- not a broker- that has an impressive staff of 2,500 concentrating on investment banking (selling stock and bonds to retail brokers( like Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Prudential Securities.), investment management and investment advisory services. Their executive Chairman is Alan D. Schwartz.
Query: Since Guggenheim does not have retail customers who can make their own investment decisions, why is Guggenheim putting out a buy recommendation to retail customers in that category? Kind of weird. Oh, Guggenheim also runs a closed end fund that trades on the NYSE. Maybe, it's their way of telling their fund to buy Zillow? Hmmm ....
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Oh and I still don't care about Zillow's stock performance one way or the other. I want them to respond to my posts on my home's valuation and another property I own. They cut me off and just sent me computerized replies to my complaints. I told them that I figured out a way to get back at them thru their Message Board. They sent me a response- I don't remember the exact wording- thanking me for supporting their site. Once again thanks tpljmpr-50. Ron.
So they only have to increase their share by 100%. In an environment in increasing competition and a resurgence of print real estate advertising.
When stocks lose half their value in a year the chart doesn't generally look too hot. Unless your Schmoe and you keep holding it upside down.
Please keep those brilliant observations coming.
These firms must smell some corporate finance business and want in. Not sure what that would be. That would explain the upgrades.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
An offer is coming. Is that all you got? A make believe take out offer?
Ok, what does Zillow have that would make them an attractive acquisition? Say something that can be evaluated. Ron.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Don't know what you are talking about dolf.nacht. What's gold and silver got to do with Zillow? Nothing, absolutely nothing that's what. Any comments on disastrous acquisitions, goodwill write-offs, new innovative competition, second quarter earnings, ..... Ron.
Honestly dolf.nacht, please say something intelligent about your opinion on the stock. Why do you like it.? Why do you think the new competition is not a threat. What future events do you see helping the stock. Any new partnerships in the works?
This constant talk about bashers, Zillow put option holders, short sellers -who are mainly the arbitrage departments of brokerage firms -your alleged genius status, is boring, very boring. Repetition is not helping your case. Ron.
After the shambolic 1st Quarter pre-announcement that the Trulia integration was behind program there has been a void of real news about Zillows 2nd Quarter performance. Seems they have been in panic mode with wall to wall TV Ads to revive flagging audience numbers, and now that $Z no longer provides MUU's it will be interesting to see if the Growth rate has 'stalled'. My gut feel is that Trulia audience has fallen off a cliff edge as employees are laid off and morale slumps.
The 'fire sale' on June 30 of Active Rain to Ben Kinney without any financial details being made public raises the question of how much the Goodwill Impairment Charge will be on this disposal. The same will apply when Market leader is eventually disposed as again no further updates on that fiasco since the 'emergency announcement' a few weeks before Q1 earnings. My Zestimate is that it does not look good !!!
