not an issue of printing or not printing money here...it is ebola scaring the #$%$ out of the economy, so you can thank obuma for that.
hey, I speculated last minute at 450 before earnings, just a bit 30 shares...and got leveled - got out at 340 so $3 G in 10 minutes down. Win some lose some. I was expecting earnings to come out this week, but not right after the bell...completely knuck head play. I would never have held through earnings but I was doing something and forgot to check earnings date. If this thing doesn't bounce to $350+ tomorrow off AH lows, then I got to think this well test support at $300 sooner or later and if that breaks...$250 pretty quick. Then again, the market would probably be another 10% lower as well by then.
sure, the froth was taken off like every other stock... I got out pretty much at 50 myself. But look at the other tech names, they are hit hard daily. Look at Google - supposedly a cheap tech stock and hasn't rallied at all this year, and still went down just as hard as Twitter and down today. Twitter got hit 10% over 2 days and that is it. I'm just saying if it isn't going down on a day like this, someone knows probably the earnings look real good. Could be wrong. Will see.
interesting stuff on charity funding requirements...nice post. gotta take a this a bit more closely just to verify.
I have just as much in FB, and I'm aware TWTR hasn't made money yet...which is the best time to buy...are you going to wait until they earn + ? Don't get me wrong, I can see your bearish views and they are warranted. I'm also aware that by that measure AMZN should be a $10 stock today too. Twitter is a mainstay social networking platform, matter of time before it can start monetizing all those users, period. I was just as critical of it when it began 5 years ago but now I see it everywhere, everyday...etc.. power of media and again, $30 billion for a global media platform? even if it loses money today...is damn worth it to me.
perhaps, it has gone in the downtrend before that took it to 30. I don't mind averaging on big down swings on this one. $30 billion mkt cap for a world known social media play? When FB is $190 billion and Linkedin is $24 bn mkt cap? let it drop, sell covered calls and just play long term.
the fact that they have a press release shows how much concern now they have regarding the stock price. It is baloney. And they use the word "formally"....in other words, no promises - because they can sell "informally"...as in, not tell you. C'mon oldest trick in the book, word play to retail investors hoping to hang on.
no, don't flatter yourself. you don't know how to write a post. Just say, you don't like SPAM. end of story. So much jibberish and you don't even know what you are saying yourself.
then just say you don't like SPAM...that is completely different from what your opening thread is. No one likes SPAM. Never mind.
how is that factual stuff? that is opinion as well. You want rumors that might carry some weight? flyonthewall maybe.. I don't get you people looking for real market moving info on a message board? you think Carl Icahn post here??? give me a break.
factual claims? how can you determine factual claims of a message board? only factual is number of shares outstanding, share price, etc... which is not going to move this stock. Essentially you are okay as long as the opinion suits you then? that is really narrow sighted. I have a big apple holding myself but I don't want to hear why this stock is so wonderful 24 hrs a day either... GM goes down the tube when all the hedgies are long the stock already, no one else to buy.. A downgrade here and there is good for a stock, because an upgrade later on would drive it higher...get the drift? bad news isn't so bad sometimes.
