  • Zynga Vs. Glu Mobile Vs. King Digital: Best Investment? [View article]
    99.99% of Digital Content in China is Pirated. There is Zero chance Chinese Gamers will create a meaningful Revenue Stream in terms of in-game purchases; especially for an out-dated puzzle game that already exists in infinite other versions.

    The "Candy Crush in China" headline was good for a day trader's short squeeze; but will have no meaningful ROI for the $5 Billion Dollar Bubble called King Digital.

  • Capture the World From a Dog's Point of View with GoPro's Fetch [View article]
    Social Media Platforms & Dog Cameras? Desperate for Revenue Growth Much?!

    Keep your Cameras aimed at GPRO's Ticker - GPRO trading above its IPO Price will soon be a distant memory.

  • Signs Of An Approaching Bear Market [View article]
    "no bull market has ever ended without a recession, and there are no signs one may be imminent. -- PERIOD !! "

    Q1'14 GDP being Negative 2%+ & Q2'14 GDP "Growth" being more than half composed of Inventory Additions aren't signs of a Recession?

    I bet you believe the net +250k Monthly Job Gains report composed of 500k Full-Time Jobs Lost being replaced by 750k Part-Time Jobs is nothing to worry about either...

    Recessions are never seen as imminent because mainstream Economists never Forecast Recessions.

    Market Crashes are so Vicious because everyone sees them coming well in Advance right?

    Hedge your Bets people - There has been no US nor Euro "Recovery" and Equity Valuations have a long way to fall before they actually represent Realistic Future Earning Potentials & the Inherent Risks involved.

  • Plug Power: Will Q2 Report Cause A Short Squeeze? [View article]
    Do you blame them? How else can you keep one the greatest Equity Bubbles of this Decade Inflated?

    Author is way too optimistic calling for a Short Squeeze - I believe we will all witness (& am betting heavily on) a Long Squeeze tomorrow when Marsh continues his Perfect Record of Over-Promising and Under-Delivering.

  • King -21.4% AH on Q2 miss, guidance; $150M dividend announced [View news story]
    Wait - You mean to tell me that Candy Crush's Revenue Stream isn't going to last forever?! But I thought it was easy to build new mega-hit games...

    BUYER BEWARE - KING's Share Price Bleed-out is just getting started; this one-trick pony is still worth a Bubble-licious $4Billion+ even after this After-Hours Rout.

    KING will easily trade under $5 by this time next year.

  • Facebook Has Become The Ultimate Fanboy Stock [View article]
    ^ LOL - you guys are very interesting little Buggers; & seem to enjoy a good round of Cyber Bullying; I wonder why.... :)

    Anyone can put words in other's mouths and then pretend to beat them in a debate. Anyone who doesn't understand how off-base Alex's "Comments" (read: Rants) are shouldn't be risking their money in the Market; this place requires more attention to details :(

    ^ Do you even read comments or simply make (& repeat) generalist, populist statements that have no clear connection to anything?

    Truly Amazing...

    IQ is the ONLY way to gauge another's intelligence? And You automatically assume that my judgement call is based on his diction and delivery as opposed to his message and content?

    I am beginning to understand why you have so many followers.... You're very "entertaining" & Do an excellent job of dismantling statements no one actually made...

    For someone with as many followers & "experience" as yourself; you would think you could analyze & understand others' written opinions (comments) well.

    Go ahead and re-read the above thread and tell us where anyone made any mention of his IQ. You complain about others' "Straw Man" arguments; but you've created quite an involved little fantasy in your above "comment".

    My Opinion of you is that you're a product of a Fed-Driven Bull Market like none before; No Lack of Stock Experts around these days...

    No Grudge here; & if I did, why would I be posting on Seeking Alpha?

    I simply like to make a lot of Money & thought others could benefit from my experience and insight.

    FB the Equity is easily in Bubble-Territory; & those who position themselves to benefit from its coming Implosion will be rewarded soon enough.

    Good Luck!

    You're right - I am anonymous and you have no way of validating what I say has any grain of Truth;

    But I will warn you - I live & work in Tech in the Silicon Valley, I have met and spoke with Mark Zuckerberg in person, I know several long-time FB employees & partners, and I have been on Facebook's Campus.

    Take what I say with a Grain of Salt as I am short FB via Long-Dated Puts; but I do assure you there are very solid reasons for my opinions and financial speculations.

    Those who believe FB's Moat = GOOG's Moat must be very confused about each of their respective Businesses and inherent Risk Factors; and are asking for a very rude awakening when Facebook's "Market Share" in Social Media finally collapses (it eventually will & has already begun).

    Zuckerberg has a rare thing called Extreme Luck; I've met him before and he is no genius by any measure; frankly an average graduating Biz School student has more business sense than him.

    Those who are blindly latching on to Zuckerberg, believing he is a visionary, are really going to be let down in the long run.

    Sorry the Truth Hurts

    The FanBoys will counter that ZuckerBoy still is holding a large majority of his Stock;

    What these "investors" Fail to understand is that Zuck HAS to hold all that stock for Board Voting Control; otherwise those who actually know his real "worth" as CEO would remove him from power faster than an especially-cute cat video goes Viral (which this kind of mindless junk is all Facebook seems to be good for anymore...)

    Fully agreed with you in that "DAUs" & "MAUs" are beyond suspicious; and if there truly was a compelling story around more granular actual usage and engagement data; the FB Management team would be incessantly sharing it. Instead they're spending most of their time training ZuckerBoy to never mention anything about Teens on Facebook again.

  • Zillow + Trulia, And The Big Cover-Up [View article]
    Where did this Delusion that Zillow & Trulia are the ONLY Online Real Estate Listing Services come from? & why do People keep repeating it without doing a simple fact check?!

    Even if this was true; HELLO it's 2014 and the Barriers to Entry of this Market are extremely minimal; in fact it's a computer, keyboard, internet connection & telephone!

    The Only thing truly holding back many potential players from entering this space is the annoying little Fact of.... There's NO MONEY TO BE MADE! Zillow & Trulia have proven Quarter after Quarter that Profits for this Service are Zero, Zilch, Nada, truly NON-EXISTENT!

    I can't believe the pervasiveness of Illogical Thought & Herd Mentality in this current Stock Market....
