This proves that Yahoo message boards have zero influence on stock pps. qed.
Another way he looked at 1140 was the right price to sell around 2/3 is he assumed 400b for apple and then did like 430x20/30PE which came out close to 280b and 1140 pps. Nice..
Or if you go the other way - He is thinking FB should be just 40b market cap but since it is trading in 180s now, he decided to sell in 1140s, which is about 4 times the 282 b that he values for Google. Thanks for a great clue..
Apple has a market cap of 470 b with about 80000 employees. Google has 48000 employees.
470bx48000/80000 = 282 b.
No wonder he sold in 1140s and al the insiders are selling too...
May be he would have waited until Google's market cap is 1275 billion or 1.275 Trillion dollars????
On the other hand FB has a market cap of 186b with 7000 employees - (186b*48000/7000=1275)...
Market was up huge which makes any stock trade higher than its fair value and GOoG is no surprise.
May be that's why?
I read somewhere that is the split was done way back when it was originally announced (before the lawsuits), the stock would not have gone above 1000 so fast. On the other hand, forward split stocks usually do go up. If that is to happen - the Google's market cap would be double that of Aaple. No way I see that with their fiasco on Motorola and delay on no good google glasses.
With Bing as my homepage, today I came to know about Python Pizza and the Red sox reporter.
No way, I'd have dreamt about them with Google as my home page.
May be, we should create another word in the dictionary called 'google flop' if it's not already there?
usually, the stocks that are split keep going up because stock price is more attractive and people still like the companies.
However, In case of Google, they have already gone up significantly above 1000 due to the delay from lawsuits. The stock price rose yesterday despite earnings miss because of the stock split news on Thu.
As revenues and earnings are dissected and digested over the weekend and next week, stock will trade at a more reasonable market cap. Shorts may pounce on it considering the fact that the market cap is way too high, compared to stalwart companies like MSFT & AAPL. jmo.
Well, someone said thinking out of the search box.
They failed in competing with Yahoo Finance and Mail. I still use just Yahoo Email even though I have gmail.
I returned Motox overnight at Bestbuy. I don't have a need for 50 gb google drive (and most don't).
Google glass ia a hype except for the ce**********lol.
Nest - sounds more like another divorcification, now that motorola marriage failed.
Pandora knows how to make more $$ than U tube ( I never watch ads but use all the videos free)
Bing/fb gaining market share.
Droid/Chrome - After I returned Motox - I got I5 and whatsapp is free on Iphone too.
What else beyond the interns making 200k for crazy ideas while fb and snapchat etc. etc are created with no $$ to start with.
Puts are same as shorting with time limit, but with less risk as shorting can make one lose more than what they bet. Puts and calls do have impact on stock price because most of them are sold by the hedge funds.
Options. stocks, shorts - go long and always use doolar cost averaging. The real key is your confidence on your long term analysis. No one wins big every time.
