People that scream Ponzi only prove they are idiots. You have no idea what a Ponzi scheme is and no understanding of financial statements. Do you really think J.P. Morgan Securities, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs. Cantor Fitzgerald, Morgan Stanley, Guggenheim, and many others invest in Ponzi schemes?
How many other clown stocks do you follow? Or do you just peruse all the scheduled earnings announcements and act like a fool when something is incorrect?
This advice is worth what you are paying for it. If it was me, I'd wait until Oct. or so to see if I have any further gains or losses to offset some of this gain. Then I'd make an estimated tax payment so that when it came time to do my annual taxes I'd already have most of it paid in. To the letter of the law it might be due right away but if you get it in before the end of the year I doubt they'd make an issue of it.
This isn't a knock on Twitter by any means, but do you ever wonder about the efficacy of billions of dollars in web advertising? How often do you actually click on a web ad? Most of the time when I do it's by accident. I often have 2 tabs open so I don't have to be distracted by the short video ads that run before something I really want to see. I buy something on Amazon and then for weeks I see all these ads for the product I just bought, a worthless waste of time by advertisers. And yet all these companies like Twitter and Facebook are worth billions because of it.
Let's say that is true. According to AF there was only 1 script the first week. So, we now have a 5200% increase in a week. If we keep that up we'll be over 7 million in a month. Not too shabby.
People that find it necessary to tout their own prowess usually are masking some major deficiency elsewhere. Perhaps a little search on EBAY for manhood pumps would help you with your problem?
Actually boy howdy, when a stock rebounds off bad news as nicely as BIDU has, that usually suggests that the bottom is in.
Well if Muzhi Li said it then it must be right. After all, Muzhi Li gave us all those other great predictions like ...um ...like...wait a minute, it will come to me .... who the F is Muzhi Li? Better yet, who the heck follows Arete Research?
Baba is not under investigation by the SEC. Learn the difference between an inquiry and an investigation. Weasel lawyers line up like flies to #$%$ all the time and rarely get anything out of it. Yahoo will spin off it's new company in the fall and is not going to sell in April. Unlocking shares does not mean they will all end up being sold into the market, get a grip. Baba may have issues but you'll have more credibility if you stick to facts instead of pulling things out of your orifice.
For your example the answer is yes. But don't forget about the cost of those options. For example. Scottrade would charge you $7 plus $1.25 per option so your out of pocket is over $13. Then if they get called they hit you for $17 so your $95 gets tapped a bit. Then of course if the stock runs to $9 then your piddly $95 doesn't look so good.
In your entire lifetime Iran has never gotten its act together. Just saying .........
If you were as smart as you pretend to be then you would know that facts have very little to do with market trends. Assuming everything you posted is correct, those truths didn't prevent a 9% haircut. One day you might learn that emotions like fear and greed control the market much more than the facts ever will. Acting like you are smarted than everyone else really makes you look buffoonish.
People see what they want to see and ignore facts they want to ignore. You ignore the fact that storms of the century occur all the time. You ignore the fact the it was warmer in the 1500's then it is today and that they farmed in Greenland for 300 years.. You ignore the fact that Julius Caesar lived in a warmer world than you do. You ignore the fact that Krakatoa put out more noxious gases than every car ever built in the history of mankind. You ignore the fact that as the population has grown by orders of magnitude, we now find people living in places that weren't inhabited centuries ago because they were too hostile to live in. It's always cool to think we live in unique times but in reality there is nothing unusual or severe about our weather today. We just have better capabilities of seeing it and measuring it.
And your brain has strong resistance to intelligence. Except when ... well always.
