Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) and Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) are likely to benefit from an emerging ad theme, real-time marketing (RTM). Analyst Peter Stabler of Wells Fargo thinks RTM will takeoff in 2014.
"Powered predominantly by social platforms, we believe RTM will emerge as a leading digital marketing theme in 2014 as advertisers seek to expand beyond nascent social programs to include relevant, short-lead marketing activities that mesh with established traditional media programs and leverage location and always-on computing access enabled by mobile devices," said Stabler.
RTM took center stage at an ANA conference in New York Tuesday. Presenters at this event included representatives from Starcom, Capital One, Purina, Kraft, Hasbro, ABInBev, Coca-Cola, MasterCard, eMarketer, and MINI USA.
"Presenters such as Kraft, ABInBev and Coca-Cola strongly emphasized the need for data-driven decision making. Though we believe many social platform marketers still rely on relatively simple engagement metrics to justify growing programs, the above mentioned marketers are capitalizing on the inherent strengths of connected platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to link their programs to actual in-market sal
Retailers--as all on this board tend to be--might be holding the rear. But the Big Guys, the Smart Money, the guys who don't "Hold" but MOVE the price, they are constantly reaping profits. And one day they will reap the disparity between the cuurent price--and the $25 that FB SHOULD be trading at. As a short, I am a little fish who tries to tag along, beside these powerful sharks. You can "hold" all you want, but we shorts realize money. I covered this morning for a profit of $1,900. In my pocket. And soon it will be time to ahort again! ...hell, Hoodie pocketed $16B from you guys, I should get AT LEAST a few K.
The S&P bullsheeet was just a minor bump in the road. The shorts want you to think Facebook was doomed because of it. Don't fall for their lies. They even believe their own lies. LMBO
I know you are angry that you are losing out. I suggest you get help for your anger issues. :)
Australia just took over G20 leadership and is hosting next year's G20 summit. Australia has already invited New Zealand to attend the G20 summit - a country that is projected to have stronger economic growth in 2014 than all advanced economies in the G20! This will be NZ's first time participating at the G20, but NZ will likely become the talk of the summit - due to their booming agricultural sector and rapidly rising agriculture exports to China!
Agria (GRO) will likely be the biggest short-term percentage gainer in the market, because GRO owns a controlling stake in PGG Wrightson, the largest ag services company in NZ and largest seeds producer in both NZ and Australia. PGG Wrightson is publicly traded on the NZX under the symbol PGW. If GRO sold their PGW position at its current market price, GRO would receive cash proceeds of $100.2 million, which would equal $1.81 per share in cash!
At GRO's current price of $1.47 - its China seeds subsidiary, which grew revenues in fiscal 2013 by 98% to $17 million - is currently being valued at less than zero! Even if on an extremely conservative basis we value China seeds at 1X sales or $17 million, and we subtract from it GRO's net debt position of $6 million - GRO deserves a total market cap of $111.2 million! This values GRO at a very minimum of $2.01 per share! We own 550,000 shares of GRO and we intend to sell them after GRO rises substantially.
