The product isn't the problem as much as the people you have promoting it are. It would be REAL EASY to double your MAUs if ANYONE was trying!!!
At some point in the future this will look like a phenomenal buying opportunity. As long as revenues, profits, and dividends keep climbing the street will eventually take notice.
The billionaires who keep piling into TWTR understand that it is inevitable that this stock is going to $200 per share or more - and when it does it really isn't going to matter if they timed their entry into the stock perfectly or not. Where so many in the market are worried about where the stock will be tomorrow or next week, they understand that if they just buy and be patient they will multiply their money many times over. That's how they got to be billionaires whereas the day-trading schmucks fight to eek out a few bucks profit over and over until they walk into one big disaster and lose it all.
Don't focus or even notice the 40+ percent revenue growth because if you do then you might see potential problems with your position. Focus instead on whatever the negative hype stories tell you to focus on - the lull in MAUs and such. Oh, and good luck when that gets corrected - and it will - because that 40+ percent revenue growth might have legs for a while in that case.
than TWTR's and TWTR IS GROWING FASTER THAN FB. Either FB is significantly over-valued or TWTR is significantly undervalued or both.
They are constantly spouting things about how the economy is doomed, the car industry is doomed, etc - whereas the economy is doing extremely well and 2015 was a RECORD YEAR FOR THE CAR INDUSTRY and 2016 will be more of the same. On top of that, LEA is growing as a company and taking market share. You just have to own it, tune out the lies and noise, and eventually you will get paid.
Right now the market has way too many people in it who are worried about where their investments will be tomorrow rather than years from now. Those people have been bailing so fast that there may not be many more left. Once it turns they will all come rushing back to buy back in at higher prices - as usual.
on the cheap and then sees his investment double over the next reasonably short window of time. People who have zero patience should not be in the market.
That's exactly what's been going on in Congress.
BRING EVERY MEMBER OF CONGRESS HOME WHO VOTES TO RAISE TAXES IN ANY WAY. When you have trillions to spend and you spend all of that and then some the problem was not that you didn't have enough to spend.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
