Just wondering... what if FB would have invested the Whatsapp money in redoing healthcare.gov (Obamacare)? My guess is it would be lots better and the insurance companies would be paying FB for everyone who bought an insurance policy. And... the US treasury would have saved a bunch of money!
Sorry, but even though I spend far too much time on the net, I don't use or even know what this product is. I used to use Facebook, but after a neighbor's account was hacked and I got tired of the meaningless posts, I dropped it.
I don't dispute that lots of folks use FB or Whatsapp, but I don't understand the value of either of these products. Certainly a product whoose value is the users seems out of touch with the valuation of companies that produce products that I actually pay for. I know, browsers TV, radio and virtually the entire web falls into the same category. I guess that is the point: with so many free services that depend on me viewing their ads, why is FB and Whatsapp valued so highly?
PXD is still on an uptrend, even though it corrected from the low 200's. PBR is on a 4-year downtrend. At some point you'd think someone would see value in it, but not today.
Is there any doubt that CLF will close near 23 at the end of this week? Nearly 3000 puts and calls have traded and there are nearly 10K open contracts. Sell your long options while they still have some value.
Of shortly thereafter... For the last couple of days, that has been the smart move. I suspect that folks are looking for some news and when it doesn't appear, they figure it is safe to sell. Then, towards close, those some people buy in anticipation of stock moving news the next day.
Cold weather comes and goes. Furthermore, coal is not used to heat homes and that is where much of the additional NG is being used. Yes, high price of NG encourages utilities to use coal, but that is a temporary measure.
Good for you. I see that both charts are on a downward weekly trend. The implication is that you should sell for a short profit, or at least reduce your position.
I have noticed that if I put in a bid that is between the current bid and ask, there are suddenly many more bids at the same price for a volatile stock. That tells me that it is machine driven. You'll also note that many options are bid and offered, but relatively few of them actually trade.
Options certainly drive the market for some stocks. A large number of options offered seems to be a roadblock to any advance in the underlying shares.
Great run? More like dead cat bounce. When the news is positive, it is an opportunity to sell at a somewhat higher price and that's what you did.
Yes, CLF beat the estimates by a bunch, but it isn't a clean number. I think the YOY change in cash position provides a better picture of the company's performance. Unfortunately, I didn't see that in the PR.
If CLF were two separate companies and someone proposed putting them together for cost efficiency, investors would probably be just as excited about the prospects. I'm not sure that the costs of a reorganization will be paid back in improved profitability.
Lots of posts today for a 2% gain. What's the excitement? Other biotechs are up considerably more on less volume and less chatter. Examples: GENE, CYTK, and ROSG.
You certainly called GENE right. I assume you have a bunch of shares. GENE up 50% and ROSG up a bit less.... 4%.
waiting, waiting, and waiting some more. Even though market and specifically biotech is up big in the last year, the ROSG shareholders haven't joined the party. 12's? That is a nice first step. I'm really waiting for 30's.
