    ran out of steam. small wonder. Where the heck could it go from here? there are only two things that can happen to this share price. it will stay around here waiting for the fundamentals to catch up or it will plunge again. i dont think the fundamentals can catch up. it has proven that it can grow revenue but not positively scaling profits. look at amazon. another idiotic stock. Grows revenue but not profits. that is not a trick. the trick is to grow profits, not revenue. the only person who cares about revenue is the person figuring out the velocity of money in Washington DC. But idiots always say where there are revenues, profits cannot be far behind. This is simply not true. They can be far behind. Each client this company adds costs them a tad bit more to handle. the scalability is adverse, not positive. The margin goes down, not up. and now it is crowing about buying a company that has lots of eyeballs. so does juicy fruit gum.

    i can see how not everybody would think that shorting this stock is too risky but for the life of me i cannot figure out how anyone could buy it. the market is going up, not down. The market is valued at about one tenth what this thing is valued. you have to be demented to go long this stock. IMHO.
