Zuck going after neighbor is a sign of deep issues...FB is suffering. Zuck controls 78% of all FB voting, his craze for power by structuring the stock to his favor is another sign of deep personality paranoia.
I hope he gets help before shareholder are destroyed....
FB thinks it will gain back lost users with Left Wing news, just like Air America was so successful.
FACEBOOK IS DYING A SLOW, PAINFUL DEATH!!!
Yes, it is like she is short FB, selling so hard, so fast. Maybe she is going to be going short after all here FB is sold...by 4th Q she could be short.
Zuckerburg owns over 500M shares of B's, so he has voting control and she know what Feed The World #$%$ he is going to make the company focus on...
She dumped half her stock in 2014 and is on track to sell the rest of her 5M left by 3rd Q.
She must know something...
Facebook is on its death spiral as a function people use on the internet. It it has lost its cool factor and is being replace my new concepts and activities.
Just as Farmville fell out, posting on Facebook will do the same...in fact it is in full decline now.
Advertising on Facebook is falling even faster, as Facebook squeezes more money out of fewer and fewer advertisers. But advertisers are finding the experiment of ads on Facebook mostly a losing proposition and are fleeing...especially back to the search engines.
Wall Street will not tell the truth so as not to upset future dealings with Facebook.
Enjoy helping the poor on your dime, while Zuck pockets $Billions and is loved by the beautiful people...suckers!!
I can answer that question...of course not.
This will all be a punch line to a joke someday....
FB is a classic stock market lovefest and fad. It has no proven business model, yet is given a $220B market cap as big as GE's, which has been around over 100 years.
This has happened many times in the past. Examples: Bagels, Golf Clubs, .coms, CROX, Fiber Optics, Solar, etc...they crash and sometimes make partial comebacks on the way down. Social Media and FB will be the biggest of all...
Fed has created abnormal market conditions by printing money and keeping interest rates low. Investors are looking for growth anywhere they can find it and tech companies are good targets - at these values, however, all tech stocks are expensive - even looking at 5+ years of revenue growth down the road. This means that most value-driven investors have left the market and the remaining 5-10%+ increase in market value will be driven by momentum investors. At some point there won' t be any momentum investors left buying at higher prices, and the market begins to tumble. May be 10-20% correction or something more significant, especially in tech stocks. Facebook has continued to perform in the market despite declining user engagement and pullback of brand advertising dollars -- largely due to mobile advertising performance - especially App Install advertisements. This is a huge red flag because it indicates that sustainable brand dollars have not yet moved to Facebook mobile platform and mobile revenue growth has been driven by technology companies (many of which are VC funded). VC dollars are being spent on user acquisition despite unknown LTV of users - a recipe for disaster. This props up Facebook share price and continues to justify VC investment in technology products based on abnormally large mkt cap companies (i.e. "If this company attracts just 5% of users that FB has, it will be HUGE" - fuels spend on user acquisition as user growth is tied to values). When the market for tech stocks cools, Facebook market cap will plummet, access to capital for unproven businesses will become inaccessible, and ad spend on user acquisition will rapidly decrease - compounding problems for Facebook and driving stock even lower. Instagram may be only saving grace if they are able to ramp advertising product fast enough. Total internet advertising spend cannot justify outsized valuations of social media products that derive revenue from advertising. Feed-based advertising unit
If OIL can change in value by -50% in a matter of months...What about the very important Facebook stock?
How could the world survive without a website? Could a new website suffice? $220B for a website? Can you fill your tank with shares? Think about it...
Most websites cost a few hundred dollars, but FB is $220B...bagholders.
Facebook has peaked out in the Western World...Africa is the future for FB.
What disastrous hedge trade...it did exactly what it was support to do, protect against a drop in oil and/or NG. It supports the continuous operations of the company, no matter the oil/NG price.
Assets are worth way more than NFX price.
If you are a shareholder of LNKD at this point, you deserve to be shafted...
This is a good point. Looks like this information was not fully communicated to the analysts.
It is NFX's job to get the information where it needs to be. Hopefully this will be spelled out at the CC.
