The consensus seems to be that Friday's move was short covering. Maybe, but what was the catalyst to cause shorts to feel the need to cover? The news was all negative. I don't know, but it seems like someone knows something the rest of us don't. Tuesday will be interesting.
Big Monster Clown car driven by genius lateral thinking Dorsey gonna flatten OL FB --- The world will soon be weary of the truly juvenile, Jr High mentality of FB and gravitate toward the more real and relevant TWTR ---Investors and traders all - switch your FB shares for TWTR now before it's too late ! --- don't let a little pot smoking or a clown car throw you off. Study your "Homer" Fellers !
atloigean - 'TWTR cannot be duplicated ...."
Why would ANYONE want to "duplicate" the nonchalant Part-Timer dorsey's money-LOSING, disastrously sinking Twitanic that is catastrophically down -83% from its high?
atloigean - 'Snapchat can and will easily be duplicated and/or fade. Facebook can, too ......'
You must be smoking some really bad weed. Snapchat and (especially) Facebook are both rapidly growing and HUGELY successful! So when you talk about the companies that will someday "fade" in the future, hey guess what, dorsey's sinking Twitanic has already disastrously faded.
atloigean - 'So what that the MAU isn't growing. It's already pretty large and they are making money .........'
Wrong and wrong again. King Zuck's all-dominant Facebook has 1.4 BILLION more users than the shriveling Twitanic. Part-Timer dorsey's sinking Twitanic is miniscule compared to Facebook. Even worse, the nonchalant Part-Timer dorsey's sinking Twitanic has always been a MASSIVELY money-LOSING company, quarter after quarter, year after year. You must be smoking really bad pot that's even worse than the pot that Facebook Director Peter Thiel says the nonchalant Part-Timer ceo dorsey and his Twitanic executive team are smoking in their Twitter offices.
atloigean - 'Believe me, the only thing hurting TWTR right now is SENTIMENT ..... At least that's what I think. I hope I'm right.'
Why should anyone "Believe" you? You just said you desperately "hope" that you turn out to be right. You sound EXTREMELY unsure of your views. Even worse, you falsely claimed that Twitter is "making money" (actually Twitter has ALWAYS lost money), and you cluelessly claim that Facebook and Snapchat "can and will" fade or be easily duplicated. Yeah, right. You obviously have no clue about social media. Obviously, Facebook has already won. Many news sources report that the rapidly growing Snapchat is raising money today at a $20 BILLION valuation, and may even be worth FAR more than that.
Things are looking gloomily bad for the Part-Timer ceo dorsey's disastrously sinking Twitanic.
BTW, does anyone out there seriously think that the disastrously sinking Twitanic only needs a casually nonchalant Part-Timer ceo?
And if you actually think that, then why do ALL other Silicon Valley companies have intense overtime-working super-smart CEOs?
Does anyone think that the nonchalant Part-Timer ceo forsey has set a new trend in Silicon Valley in which ALL Silicon Valley companies will eventually be led by casually nonchalant Part-Timer ceos in the next few years?
annews435 - 'On April 26 Twitter reported earnings that badly missed ..... they were pretty bad. The Street sold off aggressively, sending TWTR down 16% in one day ...... The Street HATES this stock ....... It deserved to sell off after the last quarter ....."
That's the only part you got right.
Wall Street, the major news media, investors, Tech industry titans, and Wall Street analysts obviously don't think much of the nonchalant Part-Timer ceo dorsey.
To the point about Jack thinking the investment world has it all wrong, I agree with him there. This constant comparison to Facebook by analysts is ridiculous. And the notion that somehow Snapchat will somehow supplant TWTR is also ridiculous. TWTR cannot be duplicated in that is totally unique real-time microblogging. Snapchat can and will easily be duplicated and/or fade. Facebook can, too, but may have such a jump that it won't. But remember that Facebook is just where the MySpacers landed because it was cooler. TWTR remains totally unique. It's a budding media company. So what that the MAU isn't growing. It's already pretty large and they are making money and will eventually find even more ways to monetize it. This is all a big game played by Wall Street. They dog stocks until everybody believes the narrative and then they prop them up. Believe me, the only thing hurting TWTR right now is SENTIMENT. And SENTIMENT is dictated by the powers that be and they can change it at any time. At least that's what I think. I hope I'm right.
Obviously, the World-Class super-genius Facebook CEO Mark "King" Zuckerberg and the World-Class Facebook Director Peter Thiel are BOTH extremely bearish about the nonchalant Part-Timer dorsey's disastrously sinking Twitanic.
Nobody has been able to find even one credible positive news media article about the nonchalant Part-Timer dorsey's disastrously sinking Twitanic.
claereviw191 - 'And Dorsey's gonna drive that Clown Car ..... smoking ...... all the way ! Nothing wrong with clown cars and pot ! ........ all confused when they see that Clown Car approaching on the horizon trailing that blue gray smoke screen --- Holy Flamin Buckets ! .....'
I have no clue what you few remaining pot-smoking, clown car-driving desperate Twitterite bulls are talking about, but it's hilarious #$%$---- !
Nonchalant Part-Timer ceo!
Never-ending MASSIVE quarterly and annual losses for as far as your eyes can see!
Mass exodus "brain drain" of dorsey's sinking Twitanic's top executives and senior engineers continuing to abandon and flee the company!
Gloomily stagnant MAUs user base for last two years ......
Gloomily bearish sales growth rate slowdown ......
Impossibly hard-to-use Twitter app scaring away TONS of users, who are all quickly switching to the rapidly growing and wonderfully easy-to-use Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Facebook Messenger, Pinterest, Kik, WhatsApp, etc.
Wall Street, the major news media, and Wall Street analysts are all continuously talking very bearishly about the Part-Timer dorsey's sinking Twitanic 24/7.
The bearish news about the nonchalant Part-Timer ceo dorsey's disastrously sinking Twitanic is never-ending .......
And Dorsey's gonna drive that Clown Car right over the over hyped non relevant FB smoking High Grade all the way ! Nothing wrong with clown cars and pot ! Gets the over serious competition all confused when they see that Clown Car approaching on the horizon trailing that blue gray smoke screen --- Holy Flamin Buckets ! --- what's an over serious money shoveler gonna do ?
Looking for Innovation? Look to Twitter. MIT knows a tiny bit about some of the things they are working on. TWTR has let a little bit of it slip out during their annual shareholders meeting. They also now have the safety of the stock options incentive plan approved which is offered to attract more talent to get the perceived gaps bridged. That way the technological products goals can become a reality. That's why the stock is going up too. A rising stock makes the stock options incentive plan even more attractive for the smartest innovators in the world to come join the company and get the next paradigm changing jobs done as fast as possible. The race is on.
What a BS unintelligible post. First, the grammar is awful. Second, no "insider" with that kind of information would be foolish enough to risk jail to inform a Yahoo Finance poster of a potential sale.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Doubt it. No one undstands the value of Twtr or thinks they can make it work so no one has bid for it yet.
Ample opportunity so far to do so. Hell, they could not find a CEO in my view so settled on Jack. This is how I see it now in retrospect.
I tend to agree. Nothing material has turned to change trajectory.
Of all the changes to date, MAU is holding to a slight decline by all measures.
Unless or until that happens, nothing other than an offer to buy the company change the story.
Jack leaving could help r Jack taking just one of his two companies will help.
They continue defending the indefensible. Jack thinks the investing world has it all wrong. Not so. People are not signing up to use it or its new offerings. Too much n decline mode for share price appreciation.
There's something called a, 'paragraph.' You should look into how it can be used to more effectively convey your thoughts.
