So Spy longs you have 2 hours to sell you long position or get hurt real bad tomorrow. Oh, lets also not forget bad job number tomorrow. Spy headed down now for weeks and months to come.
Wait for tomorrow sad job report. The bots will fell major pain come 8:30 am and need the Midas touch to keep functioning,
when he moves his soldiers into East Ukraine. Europe won't act to stop the 5' 4" Hitler, since they like Russia natural gas and also like to look the other way, when a train wreck is approaching. Obama unfortunately doesn't have the clout or the force to stop Putin in his tracks. So Russia expands it's aggression and forced power play down the throats on neighboring countries. Russia is now totally out of control and it appears no one or no country is in a position now to stop them. Germany, U.K. and even France all see to want Russian business to continue as normal, versus any thought of sanctions.
Uvxy headed for $100 plus this month, but more like $300 plus when Putin tell Obama "all of Ukraine now belongs to Russia".
Russian President Vladimir Putin has asked the upper house of parliament to approve sending armed forces to Ukraine's Crimea region, the Kremlin said in a statement on Saturday. "In connection with the extraordinary situation in Ukraine, the threat to the lives of citizens of the Russian Federation, our compatriots, and the personnel of the armed forces of the Russian Federation on Ukrainian territory (in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea) ... I submit a proposal on using the armed forces of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine until the normalization of the socio-political situation in the that country," the statement said.
Ukraine accused Russia on Saturday of sending thousands of additional troops to the southern Crimea region, which has a majority ethnic Russian population, and said it had placed its military in the region on high alert.
easy double next week if Russia does in fact invade Ukraine.
So now we have official reports that Russian boots are on Ukraine soil. The stock market can't see the forest for the trees since it closed green. Shame on you stock market. Putin move into Ukraine now means any past U.S.S.R. country that broke off from mother Russia is now in play for a Russian power move to take back what it once have. Putin wants more the Ukraine. He want Georgia. He wants Hungary, Romania, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Albania, etc. You see Putin is KGB to the core and he is now making his POWER MOVE to reclaim what Russia once lost. Spy and stock market dive next week as Putin goes full bore into Ukraine and everyone asks, "Where will he stop".
all points to a NG sell off and a major drop for UNG. Not sure I'd want to be long here with old man winter now behind us and natural gas stock piles about to build (big time).
Agree - also volume level has picked up substantially over last few weeks. New buyers coming in knowing Znga coming out with new games, new company strategy.
Watch stock jump during March 3rd presentation. Or should I say rocket higher??
but has no plans for U.S. market as far as linking with casino or online gambling? Odd that the company would make plans for international online gambling but hold off in U.S. Guess you have to pick your fights and Znga money probably better spend (near term) in gaming versus U.S. gambling.
Robert Reich, in an essay on Salon, talks about the start-up’s selling price being the largest ever in history. The sale price, he argues, offers next to nothing to the economy despite the amount of money in cash, Facebook shares and WhatsApp stock that changed hands. With only 55 employees including the two founders, the company does not produce anything or require a large system of logistical personnel to manufacture and distribute goods. On the other hand, he continues, the middle class and blue-collar workers that built America’s economy through the 20th century continue to be victimized by so much money being handed over to so few people with so much power via the Web.
There will be more outages at whatsapp going forward since the workers there are now multimillionaires and they don't really give a rat's behind what level of service they provide going forward. I mean is there really any incentive to produce when you have so much money all you can think about is spending it. 55 employees at whatsapp are now partying like wild animals and no one is watching the house burn down. Look for more major slip up at Whatsapp and more desperation moves on Facebook part.
In a year Whatsapp will be replaced by some other serice, and FB will be holding a 19 billion dollar white elephant while it stock is in single digits.
FB deal could go down as the worst take over deal in the last 100 years. Talk about throwing investor money to the wind and watching fly away.
and the loss of blood (money) could eventually be fatal for the company. See you all at sub $60 on Monday.
But if there is little economic value at present, and if Zuckerberg can't articulate how the two companies are stronger together than separate, who cares? Why do the deal at all
The darker possibility is that Facebook simply had to do this. As Evercore Partners' Ken Sena, who reduced the stock to Equal Weight from Overweight last week, points out, Facebook has experienced slower growth among people aged 18 to 24, which appears to be the sweet spot for WhatsApp.
The same tech star who was recently propelled on his own vibrant growth path is now paying through the nose, rather like a vampire sucking the blood of the young to stay vital, because at least some of the traffic is going somewhere else. And that traffic will continue to go elsewhere, since FB faces strong competition across the board for years to come.
