If the company does a secondary offering and doubles the share count, just think shorts will double their money instantly.
As opposed to Android and BlackBerry both of which were also compromised? This will not impact AAPL stock. You either want a smartphone or you don't.
They don't need the extra cash and it would hurt the share price. The company insiders haven't been able to sell yet so they aren't going to do anything that could lower the company's value.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
In the news, Walmart is matching Best Buy, Target, and Toys R Us Black Friday prices using the leaked circulars that are all over the net. They reported it to Marketwatch today. As if BBY needed anything else, Walmart is about to eat their lunch during the most important time of year.
This is very surprising. I was expecting a great launch for the PS4. Some of the reviews might be fake and I wouldn't put it past MS to pay a social media troll company to spam it but you can see from the verified purchased reviews that there is a huge problem.
Sony might have to do a recall or a 3 year warranty like MS did.
If the fabled TV, watch, and phablet all come out next year we could see 700 or 800. If they give back 100 billion (fat chance) via buy backs as Icahn wants then it will head over 1,000. Most likely the rumors will boil over and it will be best to sell a few days ahead of the new product announcements.
The stock has revenue but no profit. If you don't think it has a future don't buy it. Short it when you can. You know that Tesla Motors was losing money for years then they suddenly made a profit and the stock skyrocketed? Yeah, listening to you means you buy too late. You either believe in the contains or you don't.
Look, what people here don't seem to understand is that FB once lost money too. They didn't have their IPO until they were really profitable and didn't have as much growth left. Twitter had its IPO at a much earlier stage - one where usually only venture capitalists get to buy in. They won't lose money forever. This is like buying FB shares for 3-4 bucks each several years prior to IPO.
FB's growth is going to be slow. Twitter can grow a lot still.
If the sell off accelerates then look to buy in at the high teens. If the sell off is orderly look 22-26. Don't bother with it until it's below 30.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
That's the key though right? If you trust management you invest. If you wait until its turning a profit you'll be too late.
Some people here think there is no value in it, that's because they don't understand Twitter. I think it will make money and probably be worth 70-80 bucks if not more in a year or two. That said, it's headed for the 20's before it moves back up. You should either sell now and buy back in later or be prepared to sit on paper losses for a long time. It will recover though.
Yeah the system is set up to fleece the little guy. It's how you knew FB was a bad investment at the IPO price - they were actively looking for small investors to buy at the actual IPO price point instead of in the after market.
It has revenue but no profits. That doesn't mean there will never be profits. If I'm running Twitter, I stop showing what's trending real time and instead charge people to know it early. News is reported on Twitter prior to being on traditional news.
A wall street firm pays twitter $$$ to find out what's happening first.. Example: Pipeline bursts. Lots of tweets about it. Twitter passes this information to wall street firm. They buy crude. It hits the news. Profits for Twitter and Wall Street. News outlets would pay for access as well as governments. Companies would pay to know what's happening in their industry first. Political campaigns would pay so they could have extra time to prepare attack ads.
As far as I know, Twitter is selling ads right now but they aren't actually selling the data. I'm sure that there will be a market for it.
Twitter is most useful to people that need news immediately. That means that Wall Street loves Twitter and the press reporting on Twitter loves Twitter. nuff said.
It's better than facebook below 20 because it's got a lot of growth ahead of it while facebook already had most of it's growth when it went public. Everyone knows that growth is all anyone cares about.
