    you are seeing things through rose colored glasses.

    He is the most immature self-aggrandizing biz lacky the public markets have ever witnessed(save for a few dozen OTC company's).

    If I were Mr Panera or the like and i listened to that rubbish, would i ever do biz here?

    Not without control of the company.
    As in 2 Board seats minimum.

    I agree with NP, its a hot mess.

  • this guy is a total moron.

    I finally listened to the call.

    Its like he has never learned a single lesson of his failures.

    Still thinks he has all the answers. Walking all over the CFO.

    He's the boss of BITB? look out.

    most of that haircut was the first 3 months of Cue, because the stock was looking at a delisting.
    She certainly did not cause that, except for the fact that she was not willing to reverse split to stay on nasdaq.

    I dont think she is satisfied. But she is being methodical, if not deliberate too.
    She put up some dough at .29 on the option.
    All CR ever did was flip some options.

    Reminds me of how when they had more cash than good sense they ended up throwing it to the wind while also diminishing the brand. She certainly talked about their alignment with making their soda less unhealthy.

    Facebook has won a Chinese trademark case against a company that registered the brand name “face book”, in a sign that Beijing attitudes are softening towards the world’s largest social networking site, which is blocked to China’s 700m internet users.
    Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder, has been at the forefront of a charm offensive apparently aimed at prying open the Chinese market.

    As well as trying to master the Chinese language, Mr Zuckerberg has entertained China’s chief censor at his San Francisco home, met the head of the ruling Communist party’s propaganda apparatus and jogged through Tiananmen Square on a badly polluted day.
    Any decision to unblock Facebook in China would probably come with strict conditions, in light of how useful the site proved to pro-democracy protesters during the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011. Other foreign internet companies allowed to operate in China, such as LinkedIn, comply with the country’s draconian censorship regime.
    According to a lawyer involved in the case, the Beijing High Court ruled that the Zhongshan Pearl River Drinks Factory, based in southern Guangdong province, should not have been allowed to register the “face book” trademark in 2014. The factory produces food including potato chips and canned vegetables.
    Under Chinese law, a multinational with a globally recognised brand must prove that its trademark is also well known within China.
    Last week a Beijing court ruled that an accessories manufacturer, Xintong Tiandi Technology, was entitled to use the trademark “IPHONE” despite the widespread popularity of Apple’s iPhones. Apple has said that it will appeal against the case in China’s highest court.
    “If it was illegal for us to register, why were we allowed to do so in the first place?” asked one factory executive, Liu Hongqun, who said he had not received the court’s final ruling. “If Facebook has such an influential brand globally, why can’t Chinese consumers access its website?”

    China will eventually demand something Zuckerberg cannot stomach
    Facebook did not respond to a request for comment.
    Facebook has focused on trying to recruit Chinese advertisers looking to promote their products abroad, rather than luring Chinese users. Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer, said on the first-quarter earnings call that their business selling to marketers in China was “really strong”, giving the example of how Air China used Facebook to advertise new flight routes including one from Mumbai to Beijing.
    Although Facebook is blocked on the mainland, both it and Mr Zuckerberg are well known in China and internet users there can access the site with the help of technically illegal virtual private networks, or VPNs, which allow them to circumvent the country’s “Great Firewall”. Other blocked sites, such as Twitter, are also widely used in China via VPNs.
    In another instance of disputed copycatting, a Chinese athletic clothing company called Uncle Martian has denied mimicking the much better known Under Armour brand, despite having a very similar logo.

    Sorry, but that's just too funny.

    (Apparently, Goldman is a more influential brand globally: http://on.ft.com/1Yq5AXU)

    The only reason it pulled back like it did was technical, and mostly related to Dutchess capital unloading 2-3mm shares. They had free shares from the merger and .08 shares from the last of their previous debt tranches.

    The last 60k in debt was only convertible to shares if they got below 5% shareholder ownership. So per the filing Wednesday they unloaded a bunch since September. The MM's and I soaked up the last of the dump recently.

    The filing and price and volume action, confirm the cheap shares have evaporated.

    Keep on watch.

    High watch :)

    The numbers will be very expense heavy, despite revenue growth possibilities.

    Oh gosh. I'm regretting to inform you this but,

    That book value is total nonsense to the 9th power.

    Just do this, have any financial advisor or CPA look at the books with you.

    Mjna is just a shell game of non performing assets.

    And if that doesn't faze you,

    Their revenue isd dropping, despite the so called book value of the 'assets',
    They printed a billion shares last year(at least they are forthright there )
    Outstanding is at least 2.8 billion
    And they have 20mm in debt.

    Their assets are total nonsense.
    They just wrote doiwn one phony entry,
    The 100mm asset foir kannaway to 15mm,
    Its worth maybe 1mm
    2mm with Blake in charge now.

    But hge is a sort of company jumping phony.

    Good luck

    And then add Back the R+D spend, now approaching .50/quarter.
    That is would Be profit that is ensuring an even brighter future.

    There is a tax benefit to the reinvestment, so net of that effect , the company earnings power is closer to $5/share in current year.

    Given the 85% gross margins and 50% rev growth this is a 150$ stock masquerading as a 118$ stock.

    Wall Street is infatuated with growth leaders.

  • baldingcontrarian baldingcontrarian Apr 30, 2016 7:27 PM Flag

    Lol, yes they are dying to own a company in contraction mode with a dubious leader. Plenty of company that aren't losing revenue pay 2.5% divy. Aapl had its day. It was really good until Jobs died and his ideas have now matured. The company has nothing special anymore

  • baldingcontrarian baldingcontrarian Apr 30, 2016 6:30 PM Flag

    Actually I understated R/D. It was 5bb in 2015 equating to 1.70$/share. So we earned about 3.00 I. Actual operations in 2015, after taxes, just backing out R+D .
    Those would be GAAP figures.
    Adjusted gaap would be over 4$/share

    Looking forward, as money managers tend to do....FB easily looking at generating $5 in 2016 ....(r/d being 2$/share this year), and maybe 6-7 in 2017, all told.

    We are growing 52% currently, but just a 25*6 is 150$ share. 35 p/e gets you 180$ . I expect 150+ to be a pretty easy target, this year.

    In a stampede, maybe 175 by EOY.

    That's my opinion.

  • baldingcontrarian baldingcontrarian Apr 30, 2016 6:23 PM Flag

    Just flip the aapk chart upside down and there you have it, FB's week. Polar opposite to a Tee.

  • baldingcontrarian baldingcontrarian Apr 30, 2016 6:21 PM Flag

    Well thanks Captain Obvious. :)

    Hmm, let's see, -13% rev contraction vs 52% revenue growth and better margins up and down the P+L...by a wide margin.....

    Aapl had the last big thing and they have passed the torch. Google will continue to lose to FB (advertising $$$) and when others were selling last week I was buying OTM calls. Some are ITM now and the rest are darn close.

    I'll rotate into long term calls this week. Already got some for monthly expiry in MaY.

    Every dollar it went down I bought more after that monumental ER.

    Just look at the last 4 sequential Q's.
    All beats , sequentially, 6%, 9% 16% and 24% .

    Shut the front door, my bear friends.

    A tidal wave of money flow will ensue, especially now that PM's can digest the landscape of what is working in this environment. FB is arguably recession proof.
