It means he- she doesn't have any idea what they are talking about. If there were 6x as many sell orders as buy orders it would have created a lot of pressure on the stock price pushing it down. Think of it this way say there are 6 houses in your neighborhood for sale but only one buyer the competing sellers will lower their price hoping to draw the interest of the single buyer, conversely if there are 6 buyers and only one house for sale what do you think will happen? The buyers will bid up their offers hoping to end up with this one home. It's called supply and demand.
I think your "Parabola is full of laced wacky weed, you should try some all natural bud instead. Are you aware of the average PE's of the S&P 500 back in late 2008? They were sitting in the 70's at the start of 2009. You know where they sit right now, right about 19. Does this fundamental comparison make any sense at all to you? I'm guessing palm reading and a Ouija board are more valuable to your way of thinking.
What DOW are you referring to? DOW is Dow Chemical if you are referring to the Dow Jones Industrial Average the symbol is DJIA. As a matter of record the DJIA had a yearly low back in Feb and every low since has been higher than the Feb low. Why are you making false statements saying the market keeps crashing to lower lows when in fact the opposite is occurring. I'm starting to believe you are full of, lets just say hot air for now.
You might want to be real to yourself as well. Where did the $55 number come from, the 200 day MA? It is sitting at $54.82 but the 50 day is sitting at $63.30.
Apple price target raised to $700 from $615 at Bernstein
Bernstein raised its price target on Apple as the firm expects the stock to perform well ahead of the iPhone 6 launch. The firm expects growth investors to increase their positions in the name, and it thinks there's low risk of the company missing estimates in the near-term. The firm keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
The sky is falling run for the hills. The week after Memorial Day is guaranteed to crash. Putin will take over the world. My man Obama is a Muslim terrorist. Stop watching Fox, AKA the Enquirer news and relax, FB is just getting started. PS I hope you have some AAPL as well.
Well hold and collect the divvy instead of trying to get cute and having your stock called away. Apple is FINALLY in a sweet spot so hold, collect your divvy and count your blessings this time next year.
If someone sells their shares why should they be concerned with the split? As long as they get the cash they want it doesn't matter if they sell at $600 or $85, the value of their stock sale is the same.
Everyday at some point we are promised that FB and the rest of the market will fall off the proverbial cliff the next trading day or soon after. My only advice is don't believe the hype. Trust the reason you bought FB in the first place and ride out the down days. As long as the business model is being executed properly FB will grow. So here are the facts for this week. FB opened on Monday at $57.89 and is currently trading at $60.83 which means if you held the stock all week you have made about $3 bucks. Now go out and buy yourself a bottle of wine or a six pack and enjoy the weather as well as the extended weekend here in the US. A pretty lady to share with would be a good choice as well. PS, please take a minute of your time to remember all of the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. If it wasn't for their service we might not be communicating freely on this MB today.

Shares can't be shorted unless they're held in a margin account. If the shares are sitting in a cash account they can not be touched with out your permission, in which case you would be paid for lending them out.
My palm reader said APPL and FB would converge at the $100 level in the near future. At first I thought she was crazy because AAPL is trading near $600, I then remembered that AAPL is splitting 7 to 1 in a few weeks and I became enlightened with her wisdom. And to think I was going there just to see her boobs while she was reading my palm.
Notice all of the negative, petty #$%$ articles lately. I guess the shorts or the folks who missed the boat right after earnings announcement are desperate to get in or out. What they're finding out though is how difficult it is to turn this big #$%$ boat around. I'm looking forward to seeing my AAPL X 7 in the near future and it will be fun watching those shares run to $200 by year end. Come on Timmy bring on the new toys!
David Tepper’s Appaloosa Management added over 475,000 shares of Facebook, This guy made something like 40% in his portfolio last year. He knows his stuff, patience will be rewarded.
