    who doesn't ... always acting up, FB should create a stock msg board.

    Earlier reports said GOOG missed on BOTH revenue and earnings. Now I see they beat on revenues but missed on earnings. Misinformation floating around.

    Just a note that today the gap up from 71.29 to 76+ has been filled.
    Full Stochastics and RSI are both the lowest they've been in about 6 months.
    For the last 2 years, EVERY time we get to these levels FB has made a nice climb upwards.
    Just plot a 2-yr candle stick chart with RSI, Stochastics, CMF, 50-MA, 200-MA.

    As I mentioned before, the last 2 Oct's FB went down 12.3% and 6.9%. Using today's low as a marker, FB is down 11% this Oct. So right on target.

    Can't believe I missed the opening drop to 70.32. Damn!

    Was thinking the same thing so I looked at the 1 yr candle stick chart and you're right. Very unusual trading. Too bad I'm not a trader. These $2-3 daily moves are good money if you know how to make it.

    Got 1000 shares at 72.98 and sold it at 74.39 - $1400 gain. At least my margin account is a little happier. Might try again for the usual afternoon drop.

    Picked up 1000 shares at 72.98 just now. This is just for a quick trade ... hoping to get a $1 bounce in the next 2-3 hours.

    ejwhomes, IMHO the earnings number is only partially relevant. A beat, even if by $0.10 won't give us the huge jumps FB got last year since its now a $200B company. It will however, give us STRONG support and CONTINUED BUT SLOW upward movement over the Q4 time frame. That is a good thing albeit not very exciting.

    What will drive the stock significantly higher is when FB announces a new product or service. Something like Facebook Payment, Internet Service/ Drones, Facebook TV, etc. Or some interesting merger.

    I think we see $85-ish this year so I'm holding. Full disclosure, long since $29 so I have room to take more risks.

    Not so quick ... while anything is possible, on Jul 8th a similar situation happened and FB fell below the 50-MA by about 40 cents or so but over the next 12 trading days climbed 23.4%. FYI we are about 14 trading days away from Q3 results. GLTA.

    Nope ... I'm using closing prices, not high-low. If I mis-typed a "closing price", then apologies. Feel free to correct me. ;)

    Google Coming Out With Whats App Clone

    Fair enough and great point about user's having to manually download the FB app. But my question still stands.... Google already can pre-load Android with their Hangout app (which does SMS, free voice calls and recently added Visual Voicemail, etc) So how is the new app going to help Google any at all if their Hangout app can't slow down FB mobile usage? Thanks for responding ... a healthy dialog helps everyone.

  • Can't blame anyone for taking money off the table. Short-term volatility definitely in play here.
    For the last 3 October's FB has started off down.
    2012, 21.66 to 19.00 - down 12.3%
    2013, 50.23 to 46.77 - down 6.9%
    2014, 79.04 to 76.29 - down 3.48% (but we still have another week or so to go to mid-Oct)

    I say the low range is in the 75.50 to 71.50 range (i,e, the 50-MA to the last price where FB gaped up)

    Sucks to see it down $3-$4 in a short time frame but this is the way FB operates. The 2 yr chart shows several weeks that are $6-$8 down, only to bounce right back up the next 2 weeks. If this play out like it did the last 2 years, FB will be at over $80 by the 24th of Oct. Q3 numbers come out on the 28th so that lines up nicely for a pre-earnings run up.

    All things considered, I'm holding for now. With the last 10 World Cup games falling in this Qtr, Ice Bucket Challenge, etc, I think FB's numbers will beat due to increased usage. Not sure how much they will down play video ad revenue, payment system, etc (they ALWAYS downplay everything) but the stock can react strongly very quickly. Taking my chances once again.

    GLTA.

    You're kidding right!? WOW. When you join Ello, they give you 25 invites to pass out to you 25 friends. I guess you are not even on Ello.

    From a USER'S PERSPECTIVE, how is this any different than someone signing up for a FREE gmail account and then using that account in the Google Hangouts app?

    And FB didn't pay $21B for an App....they paid $21B for 600M users of said app. Cloning someone else's product means nothing unless you are offering something else, like better features, or a significantly reduced price. What exactly is Google's new app going to have that will convince anyone to use it?

    fb...'the ingenuine' social network.....

    luckily FB doesn't sell "likes" to advertisers. It's about targeting the right ad to the right person and FB uses a whole suite of info to do that: age, sex, political affiliation, what your friends like, location, mobile vs desktop, mobile network speed, pages you follow, likes, etc, basically ANY info you provide to FB is used to help them show you what FB believes will be a relevant ad. And by the price advertisers are willing to pay for these relevant ads, I'd say its working.

    excessive compared to what?

  • guy11288 guy11288 Oct 2, 2014 1:22 PM Flag

    you still pushing Ello? OMG. Do you even hear yourself?

    1. Will Ello ever be more profitable than FB?

    2. Ello ALREADY has FAKE profiles. So citing that as a negative for FB is quite silly. I have 25 invites and do you think that all 25 will go to real people? LOL.

    3. It seems your only issue is that you are tracked on FB, so it begs the question, how much would you pay monthly to not be tracked AND STILL have the feature set you have today? I ask because ELLO will supposedly charge for add-on features, so I want to know how much you are willing to pay to sacrifice the network effect and better features, etc. Or do you expect that the free version of Ello will be a sufficiently useful social network?

    FB is in an upward trend range. As it stands, its between 79.50 and 75.50. The 50-MA coincidentally is also at the same level 75.41. As long as we keep trading in this range we're still in the up-trend. If we break through, then look at the volume to determine the significance.

    Good work on whoever shorted yesterday and made a nice $3/share profit. Good luck to those buying today... I say we are right back to 79 in 4-5 days.

    If we close above the mid-Bollinger and mid-Keltner Channels (around 77.30), then I call the end of this little downturn and for sideways action until Q3 numbers are out in 3 weeks. If we close below that then I'll watch to see if FB maintains the 50-MA at 75.50.

    My 2 cents.

    the point isnt who will sign up for ELLO, its who will use what networks. FB couldn't care less how many accounts you have...as long as you still keep using FB 30-40 mins a day. After the initial month of excitement, let me know how long each day you are using ELLO. Why are we even comparing these 2 ... damn media!
