    Have to love it!

    Earnings blow past estimates, stock down nearly 20% from high and you have upgrades galore. What does FB do? Down and down. Obviously they were short. Folks( we who do not move stocks) saying that they will beat and it will go right by 72. Well the folks with the money move the stock not us. They have spoken. Until they get their shorts covered you can forget about FB taking off. You hear about the short squeezes. It is not the big money people that get squeezed when they are short. So be patient. They will get long again. When? I have no idea when they will be covered. It may not even take place in the next quarter. GLTA

    • i never have understood why many on this board spend so much time "cheerleading," like that--or even influencing those watching this board to either buy or sell--is going to really move the stock price. i'm really hoping that that's just something people are doing to entertain and pass the time…
      i had one person inquire, "why are you telegraphing your trade moves and strategies on the board?" because the few shares that i throw at day trades--whereas the can make me decent money--are by no means market moving against a float as big and liquid as FB.
