    10 For 1 Stock SPLIT!!!!

    Watch what happens in the morning...then you will be worried about your spelling...lol

    That is all I can tell you for now

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • You can see this is a set up for a major transition...either a buyout or at minimum serious leadership change....

    Dorsey is a great near term CEO and will do a great job picking the new CEO this month. He understands the business and I am sure the board looked at the stock price and nicely asked Costello to step down. He has a lot of stock options so it is in his best interest too. This is a way for the guy to keep his dignity. Costello has done a great job and deserves Kudos for a great tenure. He should have left about a year ago, but it is often hard to time these transitions. Costello and Dorsey understand this position and market as well as anybody and will do a great job on the CEO picking duties.

    But, this could be a set up to field any serious offers for GOOG or MSFT for a buyout... Not likely it will come to pass, but I am sure there will be inquiries...just not offers. But, if someone is going to buy out, this is the bet time ever...stable economy, proven product and leadership open to transition. But, it has to make sense to everyone and be the right number. I would say $36-37 in next few weeks without buyout. If offer was made, I think it would be $46-48 range.

    Strong future and should retrace to $36 within a week.

    Go TWTR

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    There is enough liquidity based on the shareholder approval to do a 20 for 1 or more, but 10 for 1 looks most likely and would make sense.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    10 For 1 Stock SPLIT!!!!

    That was in the news that analyst was looking for. That should put average volume above $20 million a day, allow more retail investment and more liquidity.

    One of the greatest stocks of this decade just got better.

    We should test that 52 week high again within 30 days.

    Congrats longs!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Market mechanics....shorts calls come due then forced to buy to cover.

    Strong Volume Thur or Fri

    $83 calls expiring this week look cheap based on that

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Based on realized loss. If stock up or down after position closed, it has less importance. When it has another bad quarter, there could be more lawsuits in near future.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I think $15.25 to $15.50 today

    funny to watch

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • 9:46 am est benzinga reported 1001 June Call Contract trade @ the ask price of $2.45

    Following that, at 9:51 theflyonthewall implied that is was just speculation of Google could ....maybe...possibly could have interest in buying out (of this bloated valuation some day of a a review site that they could easily duplicate internally...that is my opionion)

    (There has been no reported known offer or meeting of any kind reported to the market.)

    Wall Street Journal on May 7 reported that Yelp has hired banks to explore a sale.

    Prior to that announcement that they were "exploring" the stock traded at a market valuation of 38.22, which was still considered a high multiple at the time.

    Few I know consider the current over $40 valuation represents the current value of the company with its current payroll and management pay without a buyout.

    I feel most people who are long are looking for a near term buyout in 30 days. Most people short consider this will not happen this quarter or if it does, the offer will be under $40

    No noise from the church mice, so I think this tension can be cut with a knife and this was a scare tactic to shake out the weak shorts.

    Great entry points on puts and shorts over $48 today. Congrats for another gift.

    Should retrace back in the $46s today and test $45s again by Thur and $44 by Fri or monday possible.

    Just my opinions, but I think they are fair.

    If there is a compelling bull argument on fundamentals or similar competitors with worse valuations per employee, would love to hear it.

    Whether selling or not, management has a fiduciary responsibility in my eyes to reduce costs internally and raise prices or margins some how.

    Until then, it feels like a pump and dump game of wall street smoke and mirrors.

    Be responsible and cut staff and wages. Until then, this is a great short candidate.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Market maker got to have his fun with you this morning...ran it down a little...ran it up a lot on hewy...then pulled it back to reset and squeeze out time value on options.

    Option writer's paradise....

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • $38.22 Price BEFORE buyout speculation began May 7

    What a deal for management and board...Hire a banker to explore the possibility of some time, maybe, somewhere in the future we may sell to someone even though it appears to many that this is not what the founder / ceo wants to do. The stock races up in two days above where many think it even could be bought out and then slowly bleeds off as people realize at best, this is a long long slow process and at worst, many think near term agreeable premium will not happen at all this year.

    These are the facts...and the stock currently is balanced between these facts, one side will get hurt soon.

    I think hope floats...but then turds sink.

    When you look at the profit per employee and then look at the senior management pay, it gets even funnier.

    They need to cut staff by 30% and management salary by 40% and increase future stock option payouts to compensate 2X the cuts with benchmarks of both revenue AND profit met on an annual basis.

    Oh...that would take responsibility

    Let's just pretend like we are looking for a buyer and sell a lot of covered calls a year out to protect our position so we can cash out later. Sad....hope they do what is right for the company and gut it instead of flipping it

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    And here is why...

    There are basically two types of founder / CEOs

    1) True dreamers - innovators that will do whatever it takes to reach their vision of the company AND assume the same risk as the shareholders

    2) Those that forgot what brought them to the dance and are looking for an out because of failure to execute scalable, profitable growth or fear of market conditions and macro economy, change of personal commitment and focus, pressure from board members or stakeholders to cut their loss or realize a gain.

    Those that fall in camp #2 often started in camp #1. They sell out not because they are greedy, it is because somewhere along the way they lost there hope or got tired of trying to execute a failing vision and either they or those they represent do not want to walk away empty handed.

    For the long term shareholders, this CEO should make the cuts needed, reward with options on an executed plan and set the company up for either a buyout that creates real synergy or a new, stronger company that can execute alone for a long time.

    Until they cancel this buyout or make HUGE cuts in staff and management pay will I believe they will be ready for a buyout or to run it alone. Investors are tired of promises and shorts are starting to see this as an unexecuted plan to grow and healthy company and more of a quick buck move. If it is a fast buck, it is significantly overvalued at this level and demands a significant correction downward for a fair valuation.

    The company should cut staff and management salaries now to save the good staff and what is needed for future growth now.

    I also doubt they will do this and put this weeks target at 44 and this month at 40.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
