    The current CEO is the founder. So he can do what ever he wants, that is irrelevant. If he was not the founder, say someone that was posted to the job like Tim Cooke of Apple or other then your statement has more merit. Founders are not the same as people who got the job, such as Yahoo CEO now, she was paid nearly $100 M wasn't she of a sinking ship? No one complains. GOPRO just dropped the ball because they got confortable.

    Twitter simply wants to maintain data, your tweets, video, and other media on their hardware in order to take advantage of future technologies, including A.I., data mining, more content for advertisers, and more options for their technology with the expansion of larger tweets. Its not the text expansion so much as capturing future revenues and future data.
    Currently when you log into tweet and you visit a link, you are connecting to a different company, different website or database across the world, and all your data, interaction, location data etc are streamed to that new site, and in order to maintain control and value on twitter more as an option, they will simply permit larger content to be available from their own websites, data storage etc. This is a SMART move and i don't get how stupid most investors are and how brain dead they can be, this is an AWESOME idea that will generate more revenue going forward, much more.

    The stock should have popped $3 at least, but the idiot analysts at the banks got it wrong with their MBA's. Losers.

    TWTR hit the all time low most likely, barring any stock market crash, TWTR should trade in the $30 next quarter.

    Well wait until the summer, you comment will show its integrity. There is NO increase in sales, and Aluminum prices are dropping with no end in sight. Just because its a 1 year low doesn't mean the company will exist in 3 years.

    Management knows this, because of the massive credit bubble since the 1990s and the massive build out of China and other countries, ALU prices hit century highs. Expect the price to decline substantially and at best hover at todays prices long term 10 years 20 years out. That is why AA is trying desperately to diversify into other metals but that is a 20 y process. That is why they want to split becuase Alu will never reach these unsustainable prices in bulk. No matter what loser Cramer says. He was preaching buy at $14 a share.

    Give it time, it will settle lower in the coming year probably in the $5 range.

    At that point when the dust settles you will have 5 years to buy this in the $4 to $7 range.

    Probably will see $20 again in about 20 years.

    There was never a sustainable China story, it was leveraged on out soucing by the G7, now that they reached critical mass in general in that area, they have to reinvent with the money they saved. There is no recover in 2 years, that's a joke. Too large of a country, maybe regional provinces may grow but not the entire country.

  • Any positive news can have this pop, as its way oversold even at $15 a share.
    Expect a possibility of a 15% gain today.

    This will improve profit margins and save on input energy costs.
    This will boost aerospace industry in Q3-4, and also the automotive sector and many manufacturers are doubling down to meet demand, the Ford Truck etc.
    The demand for Aluminum is healthy given the global slowdown this quarter in the economy, and Alcoa is a great value at these amazing prices.

    Last quarter many analysts were saying its a buy at $53 a share, because of periscope. Give me a break, what a scam. Now given the multiples, earnings, and forecasts, the share price is probably now not worth more than $10. Google or Apple will buy TWTR by next year if it dips for $10 a share, then we can have Apple TV, Music, TWTR as part of the monopoly.
