Well, then live up to what you post. You call me caustic? I looked up and read enough of your posts to see you have made a career out of stalking posters and attacking, belittling and insulting them. Yes, attacking, as you attack stoxx, me and countless others. I'm just one of your new victims. I encourage readers here to look at your posts.
Stox, it's clear that bearsrunfrombulls and you have had an ongoing feud, and now he's attacking me. Why can't a forum be a place of respectful dialogue?
Asian contagion is unfortunately alive and well, as are other countries' declining conditions, due to Asia and other global contagion, and political uncertainties, not the least of which is Putin and what he will do in not only oil and his slimy relationship with Iran......but you know the further political issues he is involved in.
Speaking of Oil, the market has moved pretty much in lock-step with oil. But not the case with airlines, where declines in prices often mean declines in airline stocks. It appears that AAL's non-hedged oil stance isn't really benefiting it. I foolishly bought a significant amount of AAL, based on Cramer's former rants about how this is the airline to own, blah, blah, blah. I should have had the sense to NOT listen to someone like him who changes his mind with the wind, and with questionable mental stability. Smart, but not on target a good percentage of the time.
Just a few thoughts you might comment on.
You're the one whose blind to what's clear in the market. When many sources state that we are headed for a major correction, or a recession, you don't simply dismiss them. See the future? Maybe not, but maybe yes, with the signs and actions the market is taking. If you can't see the progressing sector rotations and what earnings reports do to stocks that are good, but considered overpriced, then you know nothing. There are so many other negative indicators, but I'm not wasting my time explaining it to someone who is as haughty as you. I'm hardly a CC graduate. I went to U of Illinois. I graduated with honors.
And, where did you go to school, in the ghetto? From your post, that seems a good guess, as you have nothing of any intelligence to say; just ridicule and insult. You're the one who is clueless.
Most of what you state is true, but you no one wants to face it. The warning signs are coming to fruition with Weds, Thurs; and now, with Friday being a real wake up call. Others will say, it's just a few days. That is a simplistic, blind view. But you will have idiots here ignore you, or confront and antagonize you. Most importantly, NONE of them can discredit the things you say; that is why you will receive only attacks and nasty barbs as posts.
Leeharold, It's easy for those like you who bought at one-third of this plummeted price to tell others not to pay attention day to day. If you read or listen to anything of value about FB, you'll find that there is a large consensus now that all the FANG type stocks, and technology in general, are now the group that has been rotated to as the "dump and sell now" by the big funds, the big players, as they are seen as the ones who are going to be the biggest losers. So, thanks for your "Good luck," but, it is you who should remember "don't fight the tape," and the tape is rapidly falling.
And who are you, a self-proclaimed speaker for the whole board? Get lost.
I'll add your name. Are you still in kindergarten? You sure act like it.
This is what you are thinking about when the stock has dropped from near $118 to $91? Take this more seriously.
Well, bareft, look at the SA article that does show the support points. It's far from a pretty picture. Look up the SA article: Facebook: Buying on Pullbacks is Not a Brilliant Idea, by Ravi Bala. It is a very intelligent article, loaded with technical support charts that show what has happened over and over when FB has reached highs.
The chart shows the distinct possibility this will test 90 (another 14 points down!), and if it doesn't bounce and hold that, it will be down way further. Now, I don't want to see 90, of course, and my account will take me to liquidation way before that.
So, there's NOT enough plaster in the wound if this market is now in a correction mode, which is very possible, as today's large and wide market decline does not portend well.
Or, more like look back in July at a recession that brings this down to the 90's or less. What a vapid message you post after this lost around 7% at its low, and next week, with China closed and little economic data, there will be more bloodletting, particularly with more margin calls forcing sales of FB and most stocks.
To all the nasty, abusive, know-it-alls who called me names, ridiculed me, laughed at and commented on each post I wrote - YOU are the FOOLS who saw your enshrined FB go down to 113.18, down some 7% from its LOW close of yesterday. I can cry at the results, but I CAN laugh and ridicule you. It's WAY overdue that you put your tails between your legs, and now it's time for those of us who had a brain of discernment in their heads to give you what you deserve. I'm going to be posting names on this thread of the nastiest of the nasty
Such was stated by Fast Money people. Not that they are right most of the time, but they aren't stupid. They run or work for funds, some have worked at Goldman Sachs. But, more of them have read the tea leaves and see, as many other fund managers and analysts, that 2016 IS for beaten up stocks and sectors. It's the move to now buy the good stuff that has been beaten down, and that fits into the sector rotation. Look at today when the Industrials, of all sectors, was one of the highest sectors. That bodes for the future, and that hardly describes the FANG stocks.
Wish I'd taken that route the last part of 2015, and I'd not have all losses I have, as it is truly one screwed-up world economy and market.
More droll from your trench mouth. You just don't give up. You do "your a short" garbage to anyone who disagrees with you. Really exemplifies your gross immaturity. Put me and mcosby and whomever else on ignore, as you falsely claim to do. Those with normal minds that are open to hearing both sides don't want to read your dreck, so butt out.
I thought you put me on ignore. Yeah, you read what you want to read --- hahahahaha yourself, infant. One track mind? Look in the mirror and you'll see one big one. as far as "you never give an ounce of weight to what anyone says..." That SO describes your pea brain and how it functions. Your nasty tongue ("blind idiot") shows what a nasty SOB you are. And you do the same, tired, meaningless calling someone a short when they don't agree with your lunacy. I don't owe you any explanation, but for the record for others on this board, I've
NEVER shorted FB. So keep your trench mouth shut. Long since $28, huh.. So you have nothing to worry about; so you can sit and run your potty mouth as if you are some authority when you are truly a nobody.
I'm tired of repeating myself. Look at the drop in FB in several days from near $118 to a low of 109.25 on Thursday. That's significant, especially when there were up days, even down days, where other stocks were rising, then why was this falling? Especially with all the publicity and writing and upgrades on the stock after earnings. You read only what you want to read. You ignore this downturn and you ignore or are ignorant of the writings and analysis of others who see FB's past patterns after high rises, and analyze them technically in the charts of FB's historic patterns to blowaway reports. Yes, it may have "upside potential", but it has downside potential as well, that, if coupled with the continuing problems in the EU, China, Portugal, Brazil, Portugal, etc. etc., and threats of global recession, are you foolish enough to think FB is immune to all of this, when they are GLOBAL and depend on global countries for a significant part of their revenue? So, the real question is, "Man, are YOU serious?
