FINALLY. Alking1 gets it.
2013 had no squeeze because of underwhelming results (by the streets point of view, not mine). SODA Investors need to understand that things can be un-recognized for months, years, etc. Doesnt mean your right or wrong. FB was at 25 for awhile. Its now at 55. Investors can be very wrong and most of the time are. (my opinion)
2014 seems to be looking much better for US Sales. Most important market. At some point the value may get too great for investors to continue to avoid. When does that happen? I have no clue where we go, but things can reach a tipping point. Q4 2013...2014?
Lastly, as someone that has shorted many stocks, you dont need to cover at a loss. Many shorts cover to lock in a gain (thats the hope right?). If you're up 20% and stock rises 8%, you've lost your gains, In that case, you may cover (ie BUY the stock)- SODA has 8 million buyers each and every day. VERY high demand when only 21 million shares are outstanding.
Tiger Global 13G would be nice for starters
I dont know much...Ma just reduced his stake rom 80% to 7%. Half went to Alipay employees and the other was for "new strategic partners." not idea who that is
YHOO got 800 million in preferred shares. Alipay also recently announced a share sale to outside investors and assume this was to softbank and YHOO
dude its MARISSA MAYER. not only do you not know her first name, you also dont know her last name. Do some research, then write a post.
SODA is amateur hour rt now and these guys are not amateur. Will take time to be digested. Doubt its for a Q4 pop. reduces shares and makes float tighter. I'd assume more shares added since 9/30 too.
I saw 4 ads in one day last week. It was terrible before that...I think we see many more heading into holiday season.
