FireEye falls on lockup expiration day

  • 14.7M FireEye (FEYE -5.3%) shares, or 10% of all outstanding shares, became eligible for sale today.
  • FireEye had already taken a dive earlier this month after announcing it's selling 8.4M shares on behalf of existing holders ahead of the lockup expiration, as part of a 14M-share stock offering priced at $82. With FireEye now below $74, those sellers got a relatively good deal.
  • Shares are still up 69% YTD.

    Good company? Maybe. That remains to be seen. Good companies make money. Terrible stock. 60+ times earnings. Increasing losses. No profit on the horizon. Yes they are "growing" but growth isn't everything.

    Sorry, meant to say 60+ revenue. However, 60+ earnings would also be high but cannot be calculated because they are deep in the red.

    Does not need to show earnings but must keep top line growth. I agree expensive, but so is the market in general. Buying on pull back.
