Ford needs to beat on revenues. Increased car sales has been a known for a month now. North American pre-tax write-down is a plus. Everyone waiting to see how much Europe sales will tarnish the overall revenues.
Just hear a report that WFC was down on mortgages writing and this could possible hurt earnings. But, the stock is up $0.17 in after-hours. Is this market manipulation?
That charts shows new resistance established @ the $20 range with potential for an .18cents uptick. 2 yr chart hints at a possible $8 move over a 2 yr span after stock pulls back to the $14 - $16 range. So, if you are bullish trader = AVOID. Bears..... are as giddy a gang of girls on a (H)igh (P)ower (Q)uest (gettin' stoned).
SELL. The final minute on-the-close today, 830, 000 shares sold. Daily candle a bearish spinning top. Not enough to info to be positive on the direction for 3/6. Also, no down gap to be a bullish reversal harami or star. HPQ 1st qtr rally is a big move for a sector (pc/peripherals) that is projected to underperform the market in 2013. The Street listed a sell rating on stock this morning. My opinion this stock has to pullback/correct inorder to move higher. Anticipation new "all-time" market high this week. If Friday the jobs report is bad, the bottoms gonna fall out. Remember, HPQ is cutting 35,000 job in 2013.
Hang on. After the "jobs report" on Friday the market gonna tank. Until, you stuck. Market gonna hit an all-time high this week.
My evaluation of current technical cloud implies a potential rally to the $29 range in the short term. Followed by a bearish trend 26 day out. If it holds true, FB will be in a head&shoulders pattern. Investigate an April Call @ 27 hold for a $1.00 uptick in stock price over 3 days. Cash out. Then sell the March Call @ 30, buy the April Put @ 27.
Cramers a 50/50 gamble. Stocks usually run the moment he says it. At the next day high, profit takers cash out, then short take it down.
Thanks for enlightening me of the fact that "Instagram" is a component of FB. I have kids in college, high school, and grade school. Their sentiment... "Nobody uses FB anymore... its played out. FB is for old people." History tell us change is always effectuated by the young. Most trends are started by this consumer group (13 - 25). Remember Blackberry? Per the youth, that their grandparent's phone. Upended by IPhone. Now see what the young folk are doing to Apple. Apple is their parent's phone. They want something different. Trends tend to evolve with every generation when they reach the age of puberty.
With the advancement of mobile devices, Facebook is no long the "go-to hub" amongst the fan base that made it popular. I am waiting for Twitter or Instagram to announce an IPO.
Are you mad? Lumia is price to sell in effort to regain some market away from Apple and Google.
Best phone should get the best price. As for now starting a new phone craze is a good target goal. Lumia can be the next popular trend.
Target: $9.75, Stop: $8.50.
Technicals indicate a bottom and swing trading through year-end. Get in before the short squeeze.
5 year growth projection of 14%. Ford is cutting cost and adding new product lines, selling off assets, closing plants, improving manufacturing production, unloading (some)pension debt, and raising capital in pursuit of increased share of emerging markets(China).
Great low cost spread trades. Strong BUY under $9.
"Looking ahead, the stock's sharp decline over the past year may have been what was needed in order to bring its value into alignment with its fundamentals and others in its industry."

News Headlines: "Manufacturing System Drives Efficiencies..." Ford Motor Company F is supporting its biggest global expansion in 50 years by rolling out a single manufacturing operating system that will drive improved efficiencies, increase capacity utilization and make the company an industry leader in lowest total cost production.
Ford Motor Company (F) saw a depressing 2012 second quarter, with a sharp 39% fall in profits to $0.30 per share and 6% drop in revenues to $33.3 billion due to lower operating results in all regions except North America. Further, it expects market share in the U.S. and Europe to be lower than 16.5% and 8.3%, respectively, in 2011 and overall pre-tax operating profit to be lower than 2011 compared with the prior guidance of tallying.
We are also concerned about the company's higher structural costs and economic weakness around the world. Therefore, we continue with our Underperform recommendation on the stock and set a target price of $8.25.
The current P/E, which is close to the lower end of the historical range, is at a 31% discount to the peer group for 2012. Our $8.25 target price, 6.2x 2012 EPS, reflects our Underperform recommendation.

There are only 3 persons documented in association with this company. One person is Vollmer; "Head Honcho". The other two (2) are mentioned as advisors with oil and energy expertise, who have been given $50,000 share interests, in exchange for future services. Mr. Vollmer is prospecting (leasing) other peoples' property in hope of finding new oil discoveries on lands previously explored ("under-explored"). If he should get lucky, he brings in "The Big Boys"(XOM,CVX,OCC,etc.)to handle drilling and production. So far he has not found any oil, paying himself 200k/year, has no on-going cashflow, and reduced assets from a year ago. So why in 2012 already, is he paying $183,000 to 14 different marketing firms(some by affilation to each other or its subsidairy), to promote and advertise the stock of a company that has yet to prove itself by producing on its service delivery?
"There's one born every minute." One could make an entire metaphor just from the trade symbol: OREO; hard on the outside... soft in the middle.
Increased market share, loss of subscribers, but 38% sales growth last quarter. Will they tell us the real deal? Streaming sector has alot of upside potential.
They need to stream new dvds on the day of release.
Mail subcribers complain about the wait-time for newer dvds. This company has potential, but no news of planned improvements or growth solutions.

On 10/22/2009, WFR reported 3rd quarter 2009 losses of $0.09 per share. This result missed the $0.04 loss expectation of the 19 analysts following the company and missed last year's 3rd quarter results by -110.5%.
I am anticipating an upside surprise due to price increase for solar wafers. Bailing at $17 NO MATTER WHAT.
