Only an imbecile would put their credit card information on FB. The Buy Button will work as effectively as "Gifts"
Facebook is testing a "BUY" Button into the feed stream for impulse buyers to make purchases; FB will securely store users credit card purchasing information. More significant than impulse buying would be that FB could easily replace PayPal as a preferred method for consumers to execute internet purchases.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Got stopped out with a small loss on my short earlier. Shorted again at 67.77. I still it pukes by the end of the day.....
Nice try at a plausible argument,but the part you are forgetting is that most of the shares held long are by massive funds with managers that have a 2-5 yr time horizon (that appear to be adding to their positions, BTW) and are not worried about the weekend except whether they are going to buy another $50M place in the Hamptons or not and insiders that can only sell on a set schedule.
I don't understand why any trader would want to maintain a long position through this weekend. Too many variables. We'll see sell off before the close. Longs that hold may be the foolish ones.
The short squeeze shall start in the next 15 to 20 minutes.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I don't see the 10% up days in recent history in AMZN or GOOG. In Fact they are not much higher than they were 4 months ago for GOOG and a year ago for AMZN. GOOG does not have a higher PE than FB.
With that said, the rest of the field you listed are all 1/10th to 1/30th the cap of FB. They cannot be compared. A smaller cap stock can move much faster than a larger cap stock.
Good point...depends what mms are doing with these options today. If FB trades like GOOG did before earnings, who knows how low they'll go next week. Options say rangebound thus far but OI much lower in both calls. & puts...not much holding stock one way or the other. If Breakout next week, I may consider reducing position, this stock is intense and markets may take a needed breather. Yesterday was a nice wake-up call, I bet Vix doesn't hit a new low this year. May buy some insurance going forward
Earning report is coming out soon and the numbers are good per my guess!
It is possible FB can go down every day next week... It is also possible it can go up every day next week. You just won the award for the stupidest #$%$ post EVER!
