    Longs have been lucky and that's about it.

    Amazon's strategy is purely market size. The stock will be at $80 within two years. No splits. This is a grossly overvalued pipedream stock pumped by utter jackasses like Bill Miller.


    Sentiment: Sell

  • The company just announced a Memorial Day Garage Sale at the Corporate HQ building!

    Desks, chairs, old obsolete computer equipment - all going for just a few bucks. Starts at 7 a.m. sharp on the south lawn.

    Also, all the memorabilia of all the grossly excessive corporate outings with your shareholder cash. These included numerous local steakhouses, golf weekends at "A" rated courses, quick trips to Vegas, and that little 'gentlemen's club' down off of Highway 31.

    Let the liquor flow, boys - we're headed to the BK court next week!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This is obviously going straight to zero.

    I laughed when, the other day, the hapless, clueless "CEO" who created this debt-bomb disaster was putting out a press release talking about how to turn it around, etc. etc.

    He should have been fired and sued months ago for sheer incompetence, but wait - in a 'pre-packaged bankruptcy' he'll get paid $15 MM to go away, and be indemnified by the new owners!!!

    BTW - They're the people screwing the present shareholders out of a billion or so.

    Crimes of Wall street never seem to stop.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Will definitely close under $34 today, and be under $25 by July 4th.

    Numbers getting worse, not better, and insiders dumping like the A-bomb is gonna hit tomorrow!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • So I can buy a bunch of puts and make a killing once again.

    My vacation this summer is gonna be totally awesome, but I want to bank some of that sucker money for the holidays as well.

    And I promise to refer to YELP every day for my dinner pick - five stars all the way.


    Help me out, idiots!

    Sentiment: Sell

  • Wow, I thought it would take months for the brain-dead mo-mo guys to finally wake up!!!

    But here we are; just a few weeks ago YELP was riding high - now it's rapidly getting back to its true value of around fifteen or maybe twenty dollars.

    Oh, and that's assuming that :
    1) the FTC doesn't shut it down entirely for false / deceptive / sabotage advertising;
    2) it makes a legit profit someday....someday....wayyyy out there in the future...
    3) Amazon doesn't just decide to whack it with a flyswatter and put it out with the garbage.

    Hope you got out at the grossly overvalued range.
    Now it's just substantially overvalued.
    Still time to hang onto a bit of your cash.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Looks like the dream finally died today - YELP at $100???

    Ludicrous - and the #$%$ 'Cramer' was there pumpin' it ALL the way, along with his fraud-buddy Mahaney.

    Turns my stomach to think that these jokers get away with what they do.

    Thievery, in collusion with hedge funds.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Very simple - BUY Groupon in size.

    Short YELP. Bigtime. In two years, they will both be around $20, and you can take that to the bank.

    GRPN is about to introduce some amazing technology that will quickly give them the lion's share of local retail, restaurant / café, and even delivery services. It's all done on cheap tablets - beautiful technology and your choice of payment plans - Square, PayPal, Chase QuickPay or any other service you can download an app for. Handles accounting, ordering, promotional, emails, inventory, and shipments worldwide - it's the most powerful thing I've seen yet.

    Amazing, and coming out in 4-6 weeks.

    Be there!!!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • But YELP is headed back under $50 by July 4 - count on it. This stock will settle out at around $35 some time next year, then we'll see if it can actually put a REAL business together, or is just another Wall Street Jack-up play. You can change 'up' to 'off' and get my exact point here.

    YELP is losing money, even after four years (!) and eyeballs don't pay the bar tab, last time I checked.

    This fantasy company is designed to transfer as much of your cash to the options profits of a few greedy VCs, and a couple of creepy techie types who started this obnoxious pile of garbage. Until you are broke, or give up trying to chase the dream. Then you will close your wallet to these thieves.

    You decide.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The selling is building, and the lots are huge right now. Dump, dump, dump - that's all Wall Street is doing with TWTR. The metrics have sucked for two straight quarters, and the massive unload is just two weeks away!!

    I laughed when Costolo said today, with a straight face, that all the insiders had pledged not to bail out when the lockup expires in May. Does he really believe that? Do you think that VCs are bound to their lies?

    Either this guy is smokin' something, or has been duped by the lawyers, or is just a serial BS artist who'll say anything to prop the stock.

    Sentiment: Sell
