        • Atlanta Equity Professional: @Andrei You should take a look at $Z. It has all of the characteristics of $P last fall - no profitability after 8 years,

        • Atlanta Equity Professional: increasing competition, massive insider sales, broken business model, large churn rate, etc. And it trades at about 20x sales.

                • phemale60: Very cute. But I don't think $TWTR "meowed" since it's far from dead; received a few upgrades; and recall it did beat earnings.
                  5/9/14
                • Andrei Volgin: It beat expectations - from the same analysts who were saying BUY when the stock was $60-70. TWTR can go down to $10 and still be expensive.

                            Shorted $TSLA and $SCTY this morning with the idea of going into earnings, but closed now for a quick profit. May short again later today.

                                Margin reports will look ugly tomorrow for many traders. It may put further pressure on momentum stocks. There is nowhere to hide.

                                    $PLUG - Looks like there is no support until $2.50/2.70 level. It will probably slowly drift there, but a crash is possible too.
