    IF THIS STOCK IS SO BAD, THEN HOW COME THE CEO

    With 40% of the stock in a short position, you are going to see the Mother of all Short Squeezes.

  • My wife gave me a book that came with Gold Leaf pressed on the cover that read, ALL YOU EVER NEED TO KNOW TO WIN IN THE STOCK MARKET.
    It came with extra Gold Leaf so you can add ON THE COVER ( as an example), BY JAMES JONES.
    I told my guests who came to dinner on X-MAS, that I had written a book, and after viewing the cover they all believed me.
    After dinner, I opened the book to show them my writing. The book contained all blank pages.

  • I am an investor in FB and want to know how if this App will hurt the company, since most of their income
    comes from advertising.
    It must not be too much of an issue or more stories would appear concerning its use.
    Do I have to worry?
    Please, I have a lot of money invested, so I hope those who really know will respond.
    Thanks in advance.

  • When Gold was at $1250 he said it was going up to $2000.
    Now he says it's going down to $900. Go to Yahoo main page and type in "Jim Rogers Predicts Gold at $900."

    Why these people are listened to is beyond me. I swear that once Wall Street writes up some idiot who lucked out on a call, they become famous because the public needs someone to lead them.

    It happens every night when CNBC presents Jim Cramer as their "expert". It has been proven time and time again that he is right 50% of the time, but people just have to believe they have found someone who is always right.

    If there is any lesson to be learned, just know there is no such thing as an "expert" in the stock market.

  • I always die laughing when i see news photos of "sheeple" lined up to buy the newest I-Phone.
    I have a plain Verizon Phone with which I receive and send phone calls and messages. All the rest of your so called Apps are unnecessary. It wasn't too long ago that no one had a Cell Phone.
    I am using this example to show why I own my home outright, own a new car for which I paid cash, have vacationed 36 countries in the last 20 years, all from eliminating the unnecessary junk from my life.
    I have a son and daughter who are both broke, and even though they both have good jobs, the credit card companies own them. They are always complaining about not having any money, but at the same time buy hundreds of items that don't mean squat when it comes to living a good life.
    Are you part of this misfit generation?

  • No one even discusses a Stock Market Crash any more.
    The public has now become immune that the Stock Market has kept climbing while (look around you) while the real economy is deteriorating. The printing of money is the only thing that has supported this phony Stock Market.
    Never mind that the job participation rate is at its lowest since the Great Depression. All government
    statistics are now skewed to report them leaving out that the poverty rate (which has been climbing every year since 1955) and that 40% of citizens are receiving food stamps and hundreds of varied Government Assistance.
    The media only reports what is given to them by a lying Government. People beware!

  • Forget it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is your last chance of getting in at a cheap price for the world's premier car maker.
    It will go to 500 and then split 3/1.

    THIS IS LIKE THE 2008 BOTTOM IN THE STOCK MARKET

    Buffet's exact quote was "Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful"

    I agree. I don't think most people could fathom how many problems, and cost over-runs happen in the first few years once a company commences operations.

    IF YOU'RE NOT ALREADY IN, WAIT TO BUY

    So far good call.

  • This stock will now have rapid and wide swings due to the fact that almost half the shares are in a short position. In conjunction with having a relatively small float this is a day traders dream.

    Any sharp swings up should immediately be shorted. Any sharp swings down should immediately be
    jumped on with a buy.

    FUNDAMENTALS DURING THIS PERIOD WON'T MEAN A THING.
    Unless you are a very experienced day trader, STAY OUT!!!!!

    It is going to be a long time before this stock trades on fundamentals, and people have a chance to study how well the company will do in the intermediate and long term.

  • I really feel guilty today.

    I grieved with the rest of the world about those beautiful little ones who were cut down in Connecticut.
    It was one of the most heart rendering things I ever encountered.

    I then for the first time (I'm ashamed to admit) I thought about the pictures and films of little Foreign
    children who I saw being incinerated by bombs and napalm during war.

    At that time I really never thought about how they were real children with mothers and fathers who I'm sure grieved just as we grieve about our children today.

    Life is nothing but a series of perceptions, and I hope from now on I hope I can perceive reality
    for everyone in an equal manner.

  • When AAPl hit 505 intra day one month ago, there was very little talk of how it was the end of the
    I-phone era.

    Now, one month later all of the news media is rife with news about the demise of AAPL.
    THIS IS HOW BOTTOMS ARE MADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    LOOK FOR ONE FINAL PLUNGE ON THE MOST VOLUME OF THE YEAR, AND BUY AT THE CLOSE OF THAT DAY.

  • There was hardly the hoopla you heard today at the time,
    What is different this time, is that it is being accompanied by news to make you think AAPL has seen its best days,
    This is pure #$%$.

    Down big most of the day tomorrow with mass panic, and then there will be a late afternoon turnaround that will make the sellers wish they never heard of the stock. IMO

  • Maybe if animals could buy computers and learn to use Face Book, 7 Billion participants may be doable.

    Since there are 7 Billion people on earth as of 3/12/12, chickens alone could do it.
    There are more chickens than people in the world. Don't believe me? Look it up.

  • There are literally hundreds of variables that create a stock price, the main one being psychology.

    Do you forget the scores of stocks in the past that have never earned any money (or never had a chance in hell of doing so) go to the sky?

    Face Book has a story that can bring about people who dream about making a killing by buying the stock.
    This is why the stock will swing wildly in the future, with no fundamental reasons at all.

    Sure, reality will some day reflect the stock price, but that is a long way off.
    Didn't you notice how the vast majority of people predicted that the stock would get hit hard when the last lockup period expired? The opposite happened because apparently the large holders held, because they believe (wrongly or rightly) that the stock has a great future.

    Even Mark Zuckerberg has publicly promised to not sell any of his shares for a year.
    Don't you think he has dreams about becoming one of the wealthiest people in the world?
    He is human like you and I, and I'm sure his stature in the financial world is very important to him.

    lotkee

    I don't mean the amount of shares, I mean the price.

    All I'm saying, is it possible that the price of the stock at this time, is already discounting the amount of shares coming to market?
    It seems to me that all of the buying, that has met all of the selling, is telling me it is a distinct possibility.

    ie. Trump bought his shares last week.
    I doubt very much (with his army of accountants) he would have bought now, and not waited until November 14. If he is buying a huge amount of shares, it would have been a lot easier to buy on November 14, as the Volume will certainly hugely increase on that day.

  • They now have 2.17 Billion Shares outstanding.
    On November 14, the Lockup release will contain 1.2 Billion Shares.

    It seems that so far, the selling has recently been met by an equal amount of buying,and even though it seems impossible that FB could hold its price on November 14,could it be that the event is already being discounted?

    I would appreciate any thoughts on this event.
    Thanks in advance.

  • I can't take the lying, cheating, power grubbing, and obfuscation by both parties anymore!!!!
    By nature, only people who have these "qualities" become politicians.

    An honest, sincere, man/woman of integrity, would never stand a chance of winning because they wouldn't, or couldn't , sell their souls to the highest bidder.

  • For a full two weeks prior to the 1980 Presidential Election, Carter was substantially ahead of Regan in both the Popular and Electoral College votes. The margin was as high as 10% during that period

    Then the Election came and Regan trounced Carter handily. No one could explain it..
