That is like saying guns are the evil that kill people. It is the people who are the problem, you cannot have freedom and protect everyone. Facebook is no worse than cell phones. Your idea is to stop people communicating and there will be no evil? Nothing you do will stop evil deeds, they find other ways.
So you probably want companies to stop making cell phones, cancel all email accounts, end social media? Free speech and the ability to communicate with others on a public forum carry with it the downside of bad people can use it too. That will not change and Facebook is not responsible for content made public by people. They do assist government agencies by providing information where terrorism and crimes are involved.
The stock is a great long term buy considering the continued growth.
I think any policemen that shoot blacks, whites or any color without justified cause should be in jail. However I also believe we have to see and hear all the facts before jumping to a conclusion. We do know that 5 policemen were murdered in cold blood in Dallas and anyone involved should be castrated and then put in a wood chipper. Zuke is a Democrat and that seems to put him in the politically correct camp of racists against white people. So probably won't hear anything about the policemen killed from him.
The blacks who commit 65% of all robberies and murder are upset that 26% of all people killed by police yearly are black? If you go by the percent of crimes committed by blacks they are getting off easy.
Even if Facebook has to pay more taxes related to Irish accounting it is immaterial to Facebook success. If a ruling goes against Facebook they will appeal and it will draw it out a couple years. It sounds bad but is not a huge deal. BUYING OPP PRE EARNINGS IMO.
Will the USA government allow licensing Micron's new technology to China? Seems to me about the same as letting them buy Micron.
It does not matter............ CEO has majority voting right already so there is no change in the value of your vote. Our votes are meaningless when 1 person controls the company.
I think the Democrats doing a sit-in preventing Congress from working is like pre-schoolers refusing to take their naps until they get JELLO pudding. Pretty childish behavior. If regular people did what they are doing we would be arrested and jailed. Shows that elected government, right or wrong, are above the law.
Besides that it is nice to see Twitter showing some value in this situation.
Twitter reversed it's trend due to the Microsoft / Tumblr buy-out. That is not a reversal due to good news within the company. TWTR will have a tough time to hold current level if buy-out chatter stops. That is not to say it will not be bought at some point but it may not be this year in which case we will likely see a retreat of share price. I do hold shares and expect a buy out in the next 12 months.
From what I understand the magnetic strip can be copied very easily by crooks whereas chip cannot be replicated due to encryption of information. This means altered ATM readers cannot copy the chip card's information. Stolen cards with chips can still be used to charge purchases.
More likely Q2 2017. PAY is over-sold and should trend back to $22-23 within 30 days IMO.
