just thought id mention it
Seems like they would not want us firm amasing vast info about what its citizens are doing/thinking... china has successful social networking QZONE and WEIBO..
Two of the most popular social media sites in the world remain unfamiliar names to many Western Internet users. Tencent's Qzone reports 645 million active monthly users as of the second quarter of 2014. Qzone is a multi-functional social network that allows users to write blogs and other content, share and send pictures, listen to music, and watch videos.
Sina Weibo, a micro-blogging site that sits somewhere between Twitter and Facebook in design, has around 156.5 million users. The rise of these sites is largely due to two factors: China's vast population of more than 1.3 billion and the fact that western sites including Facebook, YouTube, Google+, and Twitter are all officially banned in the country.
reduction of about 15,000,000
would be frustrating to have stops in at $99... MMs did well today... all the news today was very old news...
This is very old news.... they did the same thing with their HIV products......there is a human element to this ya know... ill bet the world hcv pop approached 200 million.... gotta help the poor..... but the rich need to pay up to pay for these new drugs.
Many sales reported after hours are late reporting of sales earlier that day....u can see that as the nasdaq site for after hours trading...it showes each separate trade after hours..
Vulture what's the word? i just looked at this stock.... seems to have gone parabolic... are u shorting more ?

01:08 pm ET ... S&P CAPITAL IQ LOWERS OPINION ON SHARES OF TARGET
CORP. TO HOLD FROM BUY (TGT 59.93***): We lower our 12-month target $2 to
$60, or 15X our FY 16 (Jan.) EPS estimate of $4.00 (cut $0.55 today), based on
historical and peer P/E analysis. We reduce our FY 15 projection $0.53 to $3.25.
TGT's issues stemming from last year's data breach are compounded by cautious
US consumers. However, we think the stigma will be reduced over time, and
Target will improve Canadian results in time for the holiday season. Target posts
adjusted Jul-Q EPS of $0.78, vs. $0.98, in line with the reduced S&P Capital IQ
consensus estimate of $0.78 (reflecting an August 5 earnings warning). /E.
this is credit swill
just look up analysist on etrade...pull up credit swiss... i'll try to copy it here...
i bt 15 oct 18 $72.5 puts a few days ago... they expire just before earnings but the november puts were too expensive...i paid $1.91 and they are up so far... i don't see a bright future for facebook..... folks with money to spend do really like looking at ads....and the folks spending lots of time on face book will, in gerneral, in my opinion, not be those with lots of money to spend. Facebook is OK but has been blown into a hugh market caps an d has little infrastructure (compared to google).... i also don't like Zukenbergs decisions.... i notice WhaysApp delayed again... i expect Zuck will pay the 2 billion break up fee before its all over
it could draw unwelcome attention an has little upside.
