  • Take Advantage Of Facebook Lockup Expirations With Put Options  [View article]
    Thanks for info, Plec785. That's the right kind of company for whom a person would love to work.

    When the company I worked for began their IPO, I was allowed to buy shares at a small discount and hold them for a certain period of time. Another company then made an offer to buy the stock at a much higher price. I wish that I had purchased more shares at a really low price when the company still was in private hands. The company was BDMI which was bought out by TRW, which was bought out by Northrop Grummen.

    You said: "Much ado has been made about the reasons these investors will sell their shares. The main reason stems from an increase in capital gains taxes they will incur if they sell after Dec. 31.. "
    If the investors of the IPO are locked in at a high price, why would they worry about a higher capital GAIN tax when they are only getting a LOSS?
    Perhaps the stock will rise above 38 by the end of the year?

  • Based On Recent Trends, Apple Likely To Blow Past Estimates Again  [View article]
    Yes it was very disappointing , I was hoping you were right. Right now I was thinking about getting a new iMac or something. Maybe they will lower the price a bit, but there goes the higher margins.

    Because of all the averaging going on, perhaps the average of 13.97 and 11.63 applies. That would be 12.8 plus or minus 0.6 (5% is a reasonable error).

  • General Motors (GM) is back at the table with Facebook (FB) over possibly advertising on the site after a high-profile public snub of the company in May. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has reportedly met with GM CEO Daniel Akerson in order to try to convince the exec that advertising on the site can lead to higher revenue for the automaker with more sophisticated use of data.   [View news story]
    The right advertising approach on FB by GM is a positive for both GM and FB.

    "i won't argue with you that AAPL has set the standard the past few years" -- what an understatement!

  • Facebook: The Importance Of Founder Control And Protecting Shareholders From Themselves  [View article]
    Looks like FB has bottomed out and beginning to find its true value. If Mark Zuckerberg can make money on a fiasco like the IPO before his honeymoon, he should do a lot better now with two mouths to feed. His YOUNG personality is a lot like the late Steve Jobs, who had a vision for his company that no one else saw. I did get some stock at the bottom and may get more when the dust settles, all the analysts forget about FB, and Mark's social engine begins to take off in an unanticipated direction; just like Steve's iMac/iPod/iPhone/iPad/... what direction.

  • Is Apple Running Out Of Ideas?  [View article]

    "does anyone else think Tim Cook looks a bit like Mother Brain?"
    How does what a CEO looks like have to do with an investment in Apple Inc. This discussion sounds more like a political debate then any kind of stock analysis. What is it? An old PC vs Mac feud risen from the ashes of regret. Many of us regret not buying more into the product vision of Steve Jobs at less than $100 per share. Now the stock is still available at less than $590. I do not think we will see it at $530 again. Yes, I know people are saving up for Christmas to surprise a family member, but most can not wait and will be buying the new items coming out soon.

    Didn't Apple just today integrate FB into IOS 6? My iPhone says that it is still June 11.

  • Despite slight indications of Facebook (FB) bottoming out, Wallstcheatsheet.com's Damien Hoffman says to keep selling. Why? Three reasons. First, the company's strategy appears desperate. Second, FB's valuation is absurdly risky. Buying at these levels is a high risk, low reward proposition. The third and final reason, competition is heating up in the social network space, and niche networks are likely the next wave of the future that will overtake the company's one-size-fits-all format.   [View news story]
    Apple never declared their strategy before the iProduct was introduced.

  • Facebook Can Erase Bad IPO Memories  [View article]
    I know. Facebook does not have ads that attract the young users, or even us older users. In Google the individual searches for the needed item, so Facebook needs a browser that automatically searches for an item that is discussed or mentioned between friends in their conversations. Just like the automatic spell checker does while typing this paragraph on the iPad.

    Ry, interesting comments on Oracle and the law suit over Java. . ORCL was suppose to be the next Microsoft many years ago. Oh well, I am still holding ORCL.
    ETF, your remark that 80% of FB users never click on an Ad. This means that 180 million people clicked on an Ad. Even taking away half who did not respond leaves a lot of awesome Ad gazing.
