Facebook report tonight: Daily active users (DAUs) for the social media platform came in at 936 million on average for March 2015, an increase of 17 percent year-over-year and higher than the StreetAccount consensus estimate of 920.2 million.
first quarter revenue missed analyst expectations on Wednesday, but the social media giant announced strong user growth that showed its monthly user base was now larger than the population of China.
so now your goal is 110, doc; I told you late last week to sell at 112; that was a sure thing; your hope for 110 is just a hope
both have potential near-term blockbuster anti-cholesterol drugs; why pay a premium when you can get profits, free cash flow, and a current (and rising) dividend? AMGN is clearly superior, and a whole lot safer
your posts make a lot of sense. You might be interested in a stock discussion group of which I'm a member
Fabry Disease is an extremely rare disease AND there is already out there an intravenous therapy for the condition. Today's action could be a lot of the 14% of float short covering on the optimistic news. I would take profits before it hits $13. JMHO
System-wide comparable restaurant sales grew 7.6%, including a 6.4% increase for company-operated restaurants, and an 8.6% increase for franchised restaurants.
life savings? are you serious? who would ever put more than half his or her savings into stocks at market highs and, of that, who would ever put more than 5% into any one stock. And, BABA is not even a stock: it's a right to an income stream to an offshore entity.
U.S. Silica suspends adjusted EBITDA guidance due to market conditions • 5:23 PM
Carl Surran, SA News Editor
U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) -12% AH after posting slightly weaker than expected Q4 earnings but suspending guidance for adjusted EBITDA "due to the current lack of visibility in our oil and gas business."
SLCA says it anticipates 2015 capex of $100M-$120M.
Says overall tons sold during Q4 rose 43% Y/Y to 3M tons; for the full year, overall tons sold increased 34% Y/Y to 10.9M tons.
Lampert is probably not a total moron: he won't keep flushing money down a rat hole just for fun.
Sears is doomed, in my view, and no fancy recapitalization or secondary or new CEO is going to save it. In my view, it is just a matter of time. The high short interest, and some nervous shorts, is all that is keeping this stock up . . . for the time being. It took awhile for radio shack to go under; it may take awhile for Sears, but I think most of us know where it is headed; it's approaching three BILLION in long term debt, and at some point lenders are going to give up on a company whose book value is sinking.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
the Facebook part of the exit is an error in my view; I agree with getting out of BABA, but getting out of AAPL not smart
book value now up over $49; free cash flow is ENORMOUS, company hitting on all cylinders; one of those firms that will benefit from rising interest rates; nothing here not to like
Sentiment: Strong Buy
