I don't understand Fox on it's choice of graphics .. too cluttered and too much on the screen. This is surprising because Fox News far outshines CNN and MCNBC and all the others with its "look", but on the busness channel the clutter of graphics are annoying.
I do believe Wall Street is nothing but crooks but don't believe a peice of #$%$ station like CNBC has any power what's so ever in what the crooks do.
Volume is down for more than 5 months, NOT this month. When these people (Analist and Fund managers) watch CNBC , they don't think that the news media is playing their own game of distorting the news and presenting in a way to get the effect they want to create. Many CROOKS on the wall street, and CNBC is one of them.
Are you saying that big money doesn't do D&D and just listens to other analyst and reporters? Hmmm. And maybe volumn is low because most take vacation in Aug? You very smart girl!

Because of the the constant Negative hammering on the market, the big money (mutual and hedge funds) are staying on the side lines. They don't realise that this is not real, news Media created. That's why volume is very low.
wrong, small number granted but some of us are making coin. a lot of coin
Hmm...how about nbc, cbs, abc, fox and the thousands of radio stations and other media outlets.
MM's controlling the price movement from impeding it to reach the target price so it will end up worthless to you. MM's trade on borrowed shares they don't own and didn't even spend a dime on it. You are the big loser. Best way to play options is to set it in between call/put target
RBC Capital Markets Internet analyst Mark Mahaney this afternoon reiterates an Outperform rating on shares of Facebook (FB), and a $92 price target, writing that estimates are way too low given how Google (GOOGL) performed at a similar time in the its evolution.
Facebook is his number one pick among large-cap Internet stocks, he writes, given that it has “become a mobile company,” with more than 60% of revenue coming from mobile usage of its properties.
Delving into specifics, Mahaney sees three important metrics that give him confidence.
The first is the Google comparison:
For the next 4 quarters, the Street pegs FB’s growth rate at 43%, whereas at a similar revenue base, Google was able to sustain 61% growth [...] In Q2:14, FB produced revenue of $2.9B, similar to Google’s gross revenue in Q3:06. For the four quarters following Google’s Q3:06, its gross revenue grew an average of 61%, which is materially above current FB Consensus revenue growth estimates of 43%. What’s more Google, averaged 51% growth over the eight quarters following Q3:06 and 37% growth over the twelve quarters following Q3:06. These rates are well above current Facebook Consensus growth estimates. They suggest that IF Facebook executes well and continues to establish itself as a leading Internet advertising platform, it should be able to grow at a faster rate than currently assumed.
You got it. Facebook does what broadcasters and newspapers can't do. That is sell advertising to businesses in small towns at a price that fits the number of those that see the ads.
Active versus index investing:
"The major point is to consider with active versus index investing is apples-to-apples, that is, with each adjusted for the risks involved. Since the index investor gets the market return at the market level of risk, active managers must outperform consistently to overcome the down years they experience, times when their strategies fall out of favor.
But let's assume they do that. And let's assume that the active fund somehow beats its benchmark by 0.5%, year after year. Even so, Ellis explains, such a fund charging 1.25% in fees and a 12b-1 fee of 0.25% as a percentage subtracted from assets is in fact asking the retirement investor to accept a constant 75% hit on the return."
