    getting close to over cooked

    The 50-MA, lower Bollinger, lower Keltner lines are all around 72.75 so I think our short-term max pain is around there. Plus, except for 1 or 2 days, RSI (44) is the lowest its been in about 5 months.

    I have a feeling this is like early July where we dropped $6 or so in a few days and went right back up a few days after that. Very hard to time this as its the first day of the week BABA goes IPO.

    For now holding long as I think we have anywhere from 2-6 more Qtr's of solid results from FB.

    Would LOVE to see 80 soon... then again ... someone on here once said that Cramer said if a stock hits 80 from 50, it will go to 100 shortly after....who knows!

  • "Video views on Facebook between May and July grew by 50 percent, surpassing one billion each day since June, the company said this week."

    If FB can show increased video usage, they can charge more for video ads. Period.

    A lot has gone on this Q too.
    (World Cup finals, Ferguson incident, more War, ALS ice bucket challenge, celebrity photos leaked, ray rice incident), which are being shared and watched endlessly on FB. All these combined, I believe, will help FB post another solid Q3.

    FB MARKET CAP EQUAL TO VERIZON?

    If FB and GOOG they can deliver internet access successfully, I'd love it if they offered an internet based phone service. Telcos better start buying content providers because they are in for a rude awakening in the coming decade if they solely rely on voice features for revenue.

    "stories of companies paying big bucks thinking EVERY click is going to be SALE" ???? NO one EVER thinks THAT! You are literally talking Sugar Honey Ice Tea!

    quit spreading lies and mis-information. FB more than likely will go to $100 in the next 6-9 months if they have good numbers and given that the last 3 games of the world cup fell in this quarter and that they are ramping up their video and suggested video offering...there should be plenty of reason to trust that FB will do well and can stand and monetize the MANY legs it has.

    Just imagine the power FB will wield when 2-3 BILLION users are online. The human behavioral data they'll collect will be immense and accurate beyond belief.

    Double your investment in one year with FB

    Technically it didn't "double in 1 year", but GOOG went from 318 to about 615 (94%) in about 15 months...pretty damn close. But I do agree with your comment. If FB keeps reporting solid numbers and shows additional paths to monetization, I can see the stock at $115-$120 in the next 12 months...

    Wise words for one's own inner peace. I don't wish losses on anyone but a nice FB pop this qtr will significantly help me get my small business off the ground. Been holding 9500 shares since $29 and for over a year now, so I think the risk-reward for me tells me to hold. Hoping World Cup helped with higher Ad rates and engagement enough.

    Funny story.... I passed on buying 10k shares of TSLA and went with FB instead a few mins later. That move cost me about $2M in profits. So close, so close.

    Be patient. Be humble. Good luck guys.

    So FB, a $175 BILLION company can't hire security experts from Amazon, Paypal or other financial institutions? With money and expertise ANY website can offer the same level of security as those websites that you trust with your credit card info. Don't be ignorant.

    FB is putting together the pieces of a gigantic puzzle. Recent changes by FB:

    1. Apply for eCommerce license from Bank of Ireland

    2. Released App Links which allows the FB mobile app to link to a specific page in an app. So if you click an Ad, you can for example, be taken directly to the Amazon mobile app for the product you clicked on and can finalize your purchase.

    3. Showing you ads based on the websites you visit.
    So if you're in the market for a pair of running shoes for example, and you search outside of FB, when you go back to FB you'll see those shoes in your Ads.

    4. Now they add a Buy button and will allow you to store your credit card info with them just like Amazon.

    This is shaping up nicely!

    Just as a side note, my wife buys and sells 2-3 items a month. Mainly toys for the kids. She has completely stopped using craigslist and now uses FB exclusively. She posted our deck furniture for sale and in LITERALLY 45 secs she got 3 users asking to buy it (from one of the local groups). I tried this again with our old dishwasher and within minutes there were several takers. MZ's focus on scale has truly paid off and so will WhatsApp with its half a billion users.

    Food for thought.

    Sorry but what you said MADE NO SENSE AT ALL. It will take a newborn baby 16 years to turn 16, yes we know that. But it will take a 15yr old just a few months to turn 16. What you need to know is how many people are turning 13 each quarter and roughly divide that by 7 to guesstimate FB growth (minus the deaths of course) and assuming the growth rate is the same.

    Wrong. If you see lots of BMW ads stating they won some best car category (for example) but GOOG filters out ads from Audi,Lexus,Benz, etc because they make less on those ads, isn't that manipulation just as well? Wake up America. Ads go to the highest bidder and NO webpage is UNBIASED. And as far as I've read, this was just a FB test, not the way they normally run the news feeds.

    in my experience .... these "mind games" investors play with themselves have more impact on their decisions than sound DD. It is what it is ... sometimes we are on the wrong end of it ... sometimes not. So now I just try to stay ahead of the curve and ride this s. o. b. as best I can. I've prob doubled my typical annual returns that way too btw.

  • Anyone have any thoughts on the trading pattern. We still haven't made breakout in any direction and as far as I can tell we are about 2 days from the top and bottom trend lines converging. What happens next?

    Watch The Trendline

    I agree but I just plotted the trend line again just now on a daily chart (non-logorithmic) and Tue's trend line will be at 59.90. Today marks the 9th day that we've not been able to break the top trend line. Similarly, FB has bounced off the bottom trend line about 7 times. Trend lines converge on May 30th, so very soon, something is going to give. Based on what I'm seeing we need a close above 61 on strong volume to signal a turn-around.

    62 - 62.50 or so will be strong resistance again I believe since thats the 50-MA as well as the top Bollinger Band as well as the Parabolic Sar line. Strong support is at 56 (bottom trend line) and 53.57 (200-MA).
