  • Revisiting The Tech Bubble (Almost There) 2 comments
    Sep 27, 2013 8:01 AM | about stocks: NFLX, LNKD, FB, AMZN, TSLA

    In early August 2013, I listed some prominent tech names and gave a broad range of "bubblemania" for 2013-2014:

    My personal "full bubble" target ranges in USD for the list are:

    NFLX: 350-400 or above

    LNKD: 300-350 or above

    FB: 60-75 or above

    AMZN: 400 or above

    TSLA: 150-250 or above

    I allocated the highest spread of "bubblemania range" to TSLA at 150-250 USD because of its violent recent swings.

    Once we are at these levels, 1999 has come full circle in my opinion.

    How are we doing in late September (rounded numbers)? NFLX is at 313, LNKD at 254, FB at 50, AMZN at 318 and TSLA is at 188 USD.

    Not surprisingly, TSLA made it into my self-defined "bubble territory" first - not that this is something to cheer about unless you are a short-term trader.

    I hope we don't see the day when all the five stocks listed above will be in "the zone" - or the bubble pop will be very ugly.
