    Another good day for those short FB

    by artbyxxx 19 hours ago

    You see $80 at the close? In your fragile little mind? $80.78 at the close. Oh but no post, "Oh folks I got it wrong." You can bash all you want. When FB stops spending money on infrastructure like hiring, technology and purchases of new companies and products, those purchases are going to be the reason the share price rockets. But enjoy yourself while you can. Nothing goes down all the time just as nothing goes up all the time. Just like, yes, there were stock sales (that were posted, by the way, AFTER I signed off) and yes Sandberg disposed of some shares for tax reasons, she also bought as did three other top FB executives. But you're only interested in the negative, the info that supports your negative view. Like I said enjoy. And you better pray that FB doesn't surprise at earnings. GAAP is at $.24 but I'm betting a big beat at $.30 and overall EPS I think could hit $.50. Revenue I think could beat big as well, $3.55B is overall average estimate. What will you say if FB reports $3.9B? I'm guessing $3.8B in revenue. We shall see. All I know is only 6-7 more months of this spending but by November earnings there will already be talk of what I'm mentioning now. I am betting we see between $110 and $120 a share by Dec. 31st. Again we shall see.

    Local price target lowered to $2 from $4 at Ladenburg, but maintains a Buy rating, as it believes that renewed growth will come for Local in the second half of the year

    APR 1, 2015 | 09:53 EDT
    Ladenburg estimates that the significant number of new warrants issued by Local as part of a recent fundraising effort brings its fully diluted share count to about 40M, nearly doubling the prior share count. The firm cut its price target on the stock to $2 from $4 to account for the new share count, but maintains a Buy rating, as it believes that renewed growth will come for Local in the second half of the year.

    04/15: Facebook is expected to take an even larger chunk (65.5%) of Social Network advertising dollars this year, according to a post on TheStreet.com.

    04/15: SunTrust said Facebook will report strong Q1 earnings, based on “positive industry data and checks.” The analysts noted that advertising revenues may fall quarter-over-quarter; however, revenues will simultaneously show “strong mobile pricing and volumes,” according to a post by Benzinga.com.

    04/15: Cowen lists Facebook among its 4 Top Internet Stocks to Buy Now citing that there is no challenger anywhere in sight, according to a post by 247WallSt.com.

    04/09: Facebook has filed a fascinating patent that suggests it has considered building a mega ad exchange that harnesses its social data to serve ads and, interestingly, content (like paid-for news articles or videos from brands, otherwise known as native advertising) on sites beyond the social network’s own platform, according to a post by BusinessInsider.com.

    04/02: Citigroup reiterated a Buy rating on Facebook and raised their price target to $97 citing upside is the inclusion of potential revenue from WhatsApp and Instagram, according to a post by Barron’s.com.

    04/01: Apart from a massive user base, another key growth catalyst is the company’s strength in mobile, which will continue to outpace growth in desktops, according to a post by Zack’s.com.

    Technical Review

    Facebook stock recently touched $86 for a new all-time high but had been finding support at $73 since last summer with resistance at $81, so could easily slip back into that range on any weakness shown in this earnings release. Facebook shares had previously found support at around the prior advance high, so just above $70 was in keeping with that with the next support at $55. Seasonally, the stock tends to do better in the second half of the year. (Chart courtesy of StockCharts.com)

    Summary

    Analysts remain bullish on Facebook despite some recent insider selling. The stock’s advance has slowed on worries of rising cost pressure. The company has beaten estimates each of the last four quarters by 3-10c with a 5c beat having been last quarter, so probably needs to report earnings of at least 45c on revenue of $3.63 bln to be viewed favorably by market participants. Traders also focus on the “user” data where mobile users are viewed as the growth driver, especially in Asia.

  • Demotards support high tech special interests.

    Republitards support oil and banks.

    We , in the middle, have catastrophic representation.

    Bill Gates supports both parties, whom ever can be persuaded to do his bidding. Like the time he got Congress to change a law on Sports Cars so he could drive one of his cars around town. Imagine what else he changed without the main stream press reporting.

  • Good point, Kja. And the only thing scarier than Hillary are the current group of potential candidates she is competing against.

    Another election where most of the candidates do not represent the people.

  • But , at the same time, Facebook management might have incentives to let the price rise AFTER the insiders scheduled buys are executed!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Insiders executed their granted stock options. Just an educated guess.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • it tells us u r a moron confirmed

  • This is the last 6 months.

    Purchases N/A 0
    Sales 5,863,410 65

    Holy smokes where are you getting this? I hope you don't seriously think that the insiders bought 67 million shares.

  • You prove that you are an idiot by posting that some insider bought at $83. The insiders usually get their stock for free. Sometimes you will see a small price like $1.53. I ignore your idiotic comments mostly, but if you are trying to read a form 4, let me inform you that D means disposed (sold) and A means acquired (bought). Now stop embarrassing yourself.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    he is a HINDSIGHT poster. He claimed he went long because FB showed some strength a few days ago, now claims he is short because of the FB slide. He is a lying POS hindsight poster trying to make himself look like a "GOT IT RIGHT AGAIN" master. He is a liar and has been short FB form the 70 range, and is desperate to cover hoping FB falls.

  • I'm not going back to any argument. It's just what I believe. I didn't even know there was a label for it. I'm not saying that the profits should go back to the founders. I also never suggested that they shouldn't be divided. That's what democrats like to do... create their own facts via misinterpretation. The founders of a company do deserve a share in the profits if they want them. Their employees deserve a share if they want them, and the shareholders deserve a share if they want them.
    Further, you can leave the light bulb out of this, it is a red herring. Obama's comment is also a red herring. Being that he is a Democrat, I can assure you his comment is hollow. If he really wants everything to be done for the public good, then he would forgo his salary and benefits as an example to others. Everyone wants everyone else to do things for the public good, but when asked to take out their own checkbook, you'll see how quickly these "do gooders" change their tune. You won't find that with Republicans. When they make a suggestion, they are there with their checkbook in hand to back it up. That's the main difference between Democrats and Republicans. Republicans believe in personal accountability, which is why they also believe in people getting rewarded for what they worked hard for.

    You think you're some FB stock guru, and you're nothing. If you knew how to read charts, you'd be singing a different story. Carter Braxton is an advanced chartist on Fast Money, and he tediously analyzed all the support, resistances, trend lines, convergences, etc. today, and his conclusion? FB is going to break out, and he emphasized that he no doubts about it from the charts. You may have had success at shorting, because the stock lost some steam this week. And anyone can make money day trading either long or short on stocks that have a wider daily range. Either shorting from the highs, or buys at the lows. And you think you know it all about FB? What a joke.

  • You tell his punk #$%$ cash lol
