YHOO claimed it was a success, based on the exposure it provided, even though they paid $20M for 1 game. Comparitively TWTR's is getting 10 games for $10M, so it's 1/20th the price YHOO paid. TWTR can make money as they have 20 video commercial total spots they can sell, plus revenue from any still ads. So if they sell each video spot for $700K and if they make $1M on the still ads (conservative estimate) for the 10 games then that would equal $15M for a 50% profit. More importantly I won't be surprised they increased their registered user base by 50% increasing them to 480K subs. TWTR also has 500K casual unregistered users of which they can use the NFL games to promote registration.
Short the dollar then (I did). Shorting TWTR at this point, after it has fallen so much and then getting the NFL deal is just dumb.
Down only .04 during cash hours because it was up a lot yesterday plus Naz was down 48 points. Up after hours to $17.18 so you can expect gap up tomorrow morning. Understandably you are a school boy in denial.
You keep repeating that this is down 80% from it's high. Duh, that's a good thing, unlike FB it's on sale. Ever heard of buy low sell high (short low cover high for you)? FB will never be a 4 bagger, TWTR could be a 4 bagger this year. You're witnessing a bottom here, but I don't expect school boys like you to recognize that.
So this mentioned without details.
I agree with you that TWTR is about to find it's identity and become used by the masses. I believe that they will not only broadcast live sporting events but will also add news and other live media events to the mix. It will be the only social site that allows watching and social communicating of live events.
Looks like Lesson #2 has begun. This NFL deal is just a hint of the big picture about to happen. Twitter will become the live news and sports go to social domain. This will prove to be a pivital day for Twitter.
Twitter will become the social site that provides not only live info exchange but also the means for all to access live news and sports online. This will attract the masses and drive TWTR back up to $50+. This is a game changer and is similiar to when FB discovered how to adapt to mobility.
CNBC just reported that the price tag was $10 million
Your bad alright, keep changing the terms of which you have no idea of what they are. Quit being so desperate and cover school boy
It's 10 games and will be huge for increased subs. Cover your short while this is under $20
MRK asked for 10%, most they will get is 5%. In court you always ask for at least twice as much as you expect to get. If you're going to make something up at least make it believable.
Bought a week ago in the 80's thinking the lawsuit was just MRK trying to steal a piece of GILD's pie. Never thought MRK would win that case, so I'm out for now.
Wish is was that easy, but on top of the up to $2B payout there are going to be royalties to pay for both past and future sales. The question is, is that for sales of Sovaldi only or both Sovaldi and Harvoni? If it is for Solvaldi only then not as big a deal, as GILD can focus efforts on Harvoni and upcoming improved versions of Harvoni, without having to pay royalties.
Either you are a short or a moron. Records requested are to see who is being denied HepC treatment. This will increase subs immediately as insurers don't want to be sued for denial of required treaments, which is their main contractual obligation to their clients.
GILD isn't the only stock with high volume weekly options. Anyone know why this is such a target for options pinning. It's volume was 13.5M today so it's not as if it can be manipulated easily.
Thatt's saying a lot as Facebook etc. had some great earnings. I think this has more to run next week as it has only run 1 day on Thursday and didn't retrace today so ready for a few more good days.
If GILD is $101.22 by May 20th then you break even (less commissions). Any thing above that you make money, any thing below that and you loose money. Also you can sell early assuming GILD moves up early on then you can sell for a profit rather then waiting until May 20th. You may want to consider writing a put at $85 or so and collecting the premium, if GILD falls below $85 then you would purchase it at that price.
