The chart drew a picture that some dude claims is not pretty - and another dude comes up with some extreme hypothetical situation of how things are good now but if this and this and this happen then it might not be good - and investors give those things more weight than the FACTS that revenues are higher and profits are higher. That's how investing works now. It's not based on reality. It's all about the picture the chart draws or what some pinhead analyst says - and his opinion is likely to be based on the picture the chart drew.
People who focus on things other than the money are idiots. The other things are only relevant because they are trying to use them to predict the future money. The user growth will come - but the the revenue per user is sky-rocketing.
They are also turning the corner on becoming profitable. Once that line is crossed then most of the added revenue will be going straight to the bottom line.
The situation with weakness in China was WAY OVER-STATED and has started to turn already. Typical investor reaction to take a short-term blip on the radar and turn it into the next Great Depression. The next Great Depression ain't coming - ever - because we learned enough from the last one to prevent it. Plus, we are no longer living in the stone ages.
Meanwhile, CMI has increased earnings and significantly raised the dividend - all while the stock dropped 40+ bucks because of the supposed impending China-related disaster. All it takes is a little fear over some hypothetical situation to get some people to give their money away.
This stock will roar past 150 again soon. Maybe not next week but it won't be long. Time passes quickly and when it hits 155 it will be obvious that this was an extreme opportunity.
If you panic and sell based on nothing with all that is going on then I hope the bounce is so severe that your only opportunity to buy back in is at much higher prices.
I can understand being a little off but there is no use even using the product if it is going to be off that much. You might as well be throwing out random numbers.
and are now in a panic about it. If your "investment advisor" sells and then this turns out to be a dip that bounces and skyrockets then do yourself a favor and fire him.
At most companies pretty much ALL of the work is done by less than half the people there - often by a fourth of the people there. The others need to go find something they are relevant at doing and be gone. Too many managers are constantly trying to hire people just to build their little empire within the company. If Dorsey is really making substantial cuts at the company then you have to applaud him for having the stones to do it. Grow with the people that matter and stop wasting shareholder money on those that don't.
Time to load up. People worried about hypothetical situations instead of looking at reality. For this stock to be down over 40 bucks given the way it is performing is insane. Plus, the company keeps taking shares off the market.
Oh, and if you have any more PAG then you shouldn't sell at these levels or higher. You should wait and see if somehow you can figure out how to get less for it.
Hmmmmm - what to do?
It's amazing how many idiots will make financial moves based on the "opinion" of some dude whose name doesn't even get mentioned in the article. If you see his name anywhere then it will be someone you never heard of before today and will never hear of after today.
However, Ballmer is someone we have all heard of. Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal is someone we have all heard of. Two of the richest men on earth invest billions into the company yet some anonymous dude says sell it. Do you think the richest men on earth MIGHT have done their homework before investing billions? I think so. Going to add shares on the downgrade.
You are assuming they will all stick with Apple products. I have had 2 iPhones but the pedometer on the iPhone6 sucks so bad that I will probably get a different phone next time. Don't care to buy a product that pretends to accomplish something it doesn't even come close to doing. They would have been better off leaving the pedometer off altogether.
and see where the stock goes down the road. That will tell you how much credibility you can give MORGAN STANLEY. If you invest with this company then you MIGHT want to go back and look at your returns. There's a good chance they are making more off of your investments than you are. You might be better off buying a no-load index fund than paying for their kind of advice - or buying a monkey and letting him pick stocks for you.
Right to the bottom line. We are at the tipping point for TWTR. Profits are about to soar. Not too hard to figure out.
The fact that the user base is not going up rapidly is the only reason you have the opportunity to buy here. There is a limit to how many users any of these companies can have. The population of earth is only 7.3 billion and a WHOLE LOT of those won't be on the internet anytime soon - if ever. So, there is a limited amount of room for a FB to grow their user base - but TWTR can still quadruple their base from where they are now.
Regardless of the user base, it is ALL ABOUT THE MONEY - and the money opportunity looks phenomenal.
If you buy or sell based on how a company performs relative to an analyst's estimates then you are a complete idiot.
then you should be banned from the stock market for eternity.
The Fed needs to move. The market has been down for probably 100 sessions this year because of "the probability of a Fed move". They need to get the stupidity over with and make a move so the market can have this in its rear view mirror and IDIOTS who trade on "the probability of a Fed move" will have to look for something else to panic over.
