twitter will be done when phone texting is done. People like you and most have difficulty understanding what twitter really is. It is nothing more than the ability to text on the internet. Better than texting on your phone, this is network texting that often reports news before most of the news agencies. that is the truth. face it!
godhairyballs, I remember my beginnings of when I first started trading, back in the mid 90s. How does it feel to place your first trade?
Your subject speaks technicals, your body speaks fundamentals. Clearly, you're lost. There are no technicals for twitter at these levels. This is new found territory. Nobody knows if it will fall further, stop falling, or head back up. The only 2 significant indications you will have is what the market will do in the meantime and if insiders truly start unloading the shares.
Just compare Youtube(owned by google) and simply just compare youtube to facebook...
Youtube has over 800 million unique users visit YouTube each month.
facebook doesn't even have half that.
Facebook, Inc. operates as a social networking company...end of story. That is THEIR story by the way. read their company profile.
Google Inc., a technology company, maintains an index of Web sites and other online content for users, advertisers, and Google network members and other content providers. It offers AdWords, an auction-based advertising program; AdSense program, which enables Web sites that are part of the Google Network to deliver ads from its AdWords advertisers; Google Display, a display advertising network that comprises the videos, text, images, and other interactive ads; DoubleClick Ad Exchange, a real-time auction marketplace for the trading of display ad space; and YouTube that provides video, interactive, and other ad formats for advertisers. The company also provides Google Mobile that optimizes Googles applications for mobile devices in browser and downloadable form, as well as enables advertisers to run search ad campaigns on mobile devices; and Google Local that provides local information on the Web. In addition, it offers Android, an open source mobile software platform; Google Chrome OS, an open source operating system; Google Chrome, a Web browser; Google+ to share different things online with different people; Google TV, a platform for the consumers to use the television and the Internet on a single screen; and Google Books platform to discover, search, and consume content from printed books online. Further, the company provides Google Apps, a cloud computing suite of message and collaboration tools, which primarily includes Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, Google translate, and Google Sites; Search Appliance, a search technology for use within enterprises; Google Site Search, a custom search engine; Google Commerce Search for online retail enterprises; Google Maps Application Programming Interface for businesses; and Google Earth Enterprise, a firewall software solution for imagery and data visualization.
Are you joking? Whatever you are implying, here are the facts. Google has a current p/e of 29.99 and Farcebook's current p/e of 152.72.
So even if facebook had the potential of google, and it doesn't even come close because google is so much more diverse than facebook....based on the p/e s above, facts, not wild stabs in the dark, facebook has a value of $4.43. THAT WOULD BE IF FACEBOOK HAS THE POTENTIAL OF GOOGLE TODAY! Are you guys seriously kidding yourselves or what?
You guys are paying today for a company that might be 6 plus times better than google some day. Say that someday is in 3 years, which it can not happen, but say it does, you are paying for that company's value TODAY. Get it?
FACE IT! At least stop dealing in fantasy and start dealing with facts.
See next post, Copernicus
I disagree. I believe this stock of little worth that insiders are dumping is going to hold within 5% into earnings then drop right after it reports and more after all internet stocks report.
"They like casinos. And a lot of people in casionos like to lose. It was proven scientifically. They feel like heros when lose."
So the shorts are betting on red and you are betting on black...the fact remains that you are both in casinos.
Nice try, Spock. You defy logic.
" Keep dropping so I can buy more"
You can buy all you want right now. So that is simply a reverse psychology tactic. Who do you really think that will work on? You're in a heap of trouble. I hope you didn't buy this on margin because everybody and their mother has bought this stock. Who is left to buy? WHO? Nobody.
If you eliminate the fact that facebook has NOTHING proprietary and just focus on valuation alone, you've already overpaid for it no matter where you bought it. (that is sad...i'm very sorry...the truth hurts but it might just set you free.)
Insiders are selling hand over fist. Do you think you have more insight than them? Laughable, isn't it? http://finance.yahoo.com/q/it?s=FB+Insider+Transactions
Facebook is either going to fade out of use within the next three years or it will have some other huge competitor competing for the same "users" and the competitor will do it better with less invasion of privacy.
Truth is, the only appealing thing about facebook is that you can network with people you want to.
An ugly byproduct of that is that you eliminate a lot of your privacy while doing that.
As soon as people realize that they can just network without reducing their privacy, facebook will die.
Just like everyone thought blackberry, AOL, blackberry, iPhone wouldn't be bumped off the top of the heap, the same way here some people think facebook is the only one on top forever. Face reality. Facebook doesn't have anything if at all proprietary. At least blackeberry had security. At least iPhone had a better way of doing things etc.
facebook had an interesting name and made the first few million users (myself included) to take a look at what this "face" "book" thing was. And you could find old friends from elementary school and new friends from work etc...but what is proprietary here? graph search? Graph search is almost funny...if it wasn't so sad.
The model for facebook is this.
You use it and they share the info with entities that want to make money.
What's in it for you? Networking? That's not proprietary.
The only thing they have is volume of users. The only reason myspace didn't develop into the volume of facebook is myspace took a little bit of technical nohow to maximize it and it didn't have as catchy o an interesting a name.
In my opinion, facebook is the AOL of networking.
They had it all and they will lose it.
Within three years.
Why three years?
First, three years is almost an eternity in this space(cyberspace, technology and the internet) look at iPhone with android slowly eating its lunch worldwide.
Second, competition is heating up http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2012-12/07/google-plus-grows
