Very strange indeed. Analyst upgrade just noted though.
Of course the thing could still could pop to $20 Thursday but it's looking less likely every day.
worth a shot for their name cash expertise
a new ceo should be able to steer them to safety of some kind
sad story all around
Everyone is very skeptical at TWTR priced above $18.
Does it shoot up to $32 and then fall back to $24?
It's still losing money.
TWTR now looking greedy like FB IPO.
Not smart, unless they can pop to $50 on day one.
I don't see how TWTR stays at $50 for more than a few minutes.
Be careful with TWTR, stick w/ FB.
The last two earnings reports were wildly positive, and FB is now doubled since Sandberg finally came out and said the stock was as strong as ever.
I think we can all agree that the CFO, COO and CEO of this company are hardly worried about retail investors, or swings in the stock price by $10 or less. This is still a story stock, a trade, a gamble, that has behaved erratically.
After 18 months, I assumed FB would be at 50, and here it is. In another 18 months, I think it's equally likely it will be $100 a share. If you have the stomach for their business model, amateurishness, and plutocratic method of running things, it's a good time to buy more.
I think we can all agree that even if FB performs well as a stock, it's not because its mgmt. really cares. If the top 3 were replaced by ANY 3 Stanford MBA grads, the stock would probably already be at $100 a share.
Two dramatic consecutive earnings beats, going to S&P, about to ad video ads.
People love to hate the stock, but it really has performed well the last 6 months and answered the critical question about monetizing mobile.
Earnings volatility over, profit takers done, took some money out for TWTR. Now back on track.
Ending over $50 again?
Was this the end of year correction? Perhaps.
If next earnings also beat, FB is a mature player in mobile ads, and can challenge GOOG. We'll see.
Beating estimates by 6 cents is very cool.
FB going to S&P is very cool.
Starting million dollars video ads - very very cool.
The facts are that if FB handled earnings calls well, the stock would already above $100.
This is what happens when all the voting shares are concentrated among a few people who want to do it all their way. Investors are simply on their own. I want to sell more, I haate the business model, and the indifferent mgmt.
BUT the last two earnings beats w/ great revenue show that FB will keep rising despite its inept management.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The leadership is immature, inexperienced, and indifferent daydreaming plutocrats without any accountability.
If the company were run by Harvard MBA Students, it would already be above $100 a share.
Investors have no say, no vote on the board or the activities.
They need a new adult in the room to do their conference calls. Very simple. Maybe it's time to let Deb Crawford run the calls and do most of the talking. Ridiculous.
Agreed. The longer term issue remains that there are no adults at this company - these folks are so rich and ivory towered, they really cannot understand or care about retail investors. If you're along for the ride get used to it.
Ironically Zuck has been the steadiest at times, but the three of them simply don't care if the stock goes up or down 20%. Face it.
Tomorrow the stock SHOULD zip right back up to $52. The news was too positive to be ignored. FB is becoming a threat to GOOG dominance of mobile ads. Even with indifferent and careless management, the stock keeps rising up to $60 soon.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
looks like I was right. interesting.
Twitter IPO may be unsetting FB, Chinese Tech Stocks.
Maybe just profit taking or moving funds away to invest in Ali Baba, TWTR.
FB Earnings could beat again, so selling now makes little sense.
Another analysts upped target to $61.
FB YELP LNKD TWTR do appear set up to be big 4 U.S. social media
and really should buy up smaller competitors like Pinterest, Square, etc.
Tech sector unstable due to China.
Qihu Sohu profit taking.
Good time to load up some more before earnings, which could be quite good.
Should inch back up 50.50 if this due to Asian influence.
Seems very likely. Just worried about FBs history of disappointments.
Even with a beat, some folks may just take profits and put towards TWTR.
So it's not a sure thing this year.
Next year though, FB looks like it's going to solidify above $50.
Calls being bought for $65 in Jan.
Bought some more on the dip at $48. Not entirely convinced we're getting past $54 this soon.
Don't like the stock or its leadership or its ads. Just speculating at this point.
But if there is a debt ceiling deal and an earnings beat and a move to S&P, why not $60?
What's really stupid is that the annual budget deficit is actually DROPPING drastically despite all this idiocy from the GOP.
If the deficit were increasing as they mislead everyone to believe, then I would support their fervor. This is simply NOT the case. The deficits are going DOWN dramatically. Look it up. They were blown up by Obama's predecessor if you recall, so the GOP and Boehner is just as responsible for this whole mess as Obama. You can't just wipe out 1T dollars from a budget in a year or two during a disastrous recession.
Iin any event, this will be old news in a month, and FB should be bounce right back up to $49 easy.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The irony is that the confederacy had one really good idea - it mandated riders and amendments to any bills - the confederacy ONLY had clean, one topic bills. Look at what that would have given us today if we had only clean bills !
