  • Facebook: A Few Moves Could Make This A Golden $32 Stock [View article]
    Facebook former and current employees have to decide if they want to kill the stock. It's common sense. You can't dump 800 million shares in total from three future lockups and expect to have a company unless a investor comes in to buy a Block at $20 per share or higher. Mark should hire someone to call shareholders or find new shareholders who believe the company can make a serious run in Technology. But the number of new shares eligible for sale equals roughly 8% of Facebook's 2.2 billion shares outstanding. That's a large chunk of stock that would need to be absorbed by buying demand.

  • As Facebook (FB -3.4%) sells off on news director/seed investor Peter Thiel has cashed out in a big way, VC Fred Wilson defends Thiel's actions by arguing investors are obligated to return capital to clients as quickly as possible. But as Dan Primack points out, most of Thiel's sales involved his personal stake in Facebook. VC Ann Winblad also defends Thiel, but thinks Facebook and other public companies are better off not having VCs such as Thiel serve as board members. [View news story]
    I forgot what happens if the stock price goes to zero. Does anyone recall what happens to a public company at that point? They usually end up a part of another company at a single digit price.

  • Facebook: A Few Moves Could Make This A Golden $32 Stock [View article]
    Facebook had two IPO's. This is a "no bueno" move. Management allowed this http://tcrn.ch/NhpFyR to happen when the IPO market was underperforming. Basically the sell of a half billion dollar investment valued at $35 billion is an IPO. Institutional Investors were duped like individual investors for a change in the 2nd IPO. Well, plenty of individual customers got the call for some shares as well. It's over, the fat lady has sung. Facebook could take the billion in cash and creates some things someone wants to buy, or allow business related customer acquisition opportunities, but there is so much fragmented competition. Who needs to pay for a middleman with little value. Being a fourth act behind Apple's ability to create revenue from fun products, Google's Ad dominance, and Microsoft's waiting to "pounce one day" strategy, Facebook is going to be a movie star in the good old days. All of the earlier employees consider the first IPO a success, but they are not at the company solving these problems of the second IPO

  • Schwab Readies to Launch Commission-Free ETFs [View article]
    Do your readers a favor and explain the fees. This commission free idea is like saying they are the wold that is only going to eat your arm. They couldn't be in business if they offered free investment vehicles. Tell the public the catch and start a trend in transparency.

  • Charles Schwab's First Four ETFs Begin Trading Today [View article]
    I guess Schwab is afraid of full and clear transparency on fees. How they are going to make money on this ETF is important for the public to know. I would have invested in these funds if they have disclosed this information. It reminds me of the OTC market making $3 spreads per share before technology helped launch program trading. It is misleading to say this is a commission free ETF

  • 2009 Will Be a Bad Year for Semiconductor Equipment Companies [View article]
    I like this chart is very interesting. It will be great to see it if it correct.... let's wait one year. What is the hurry! If he is right we will make an informed decision. If we move with our money now it will be a bet.

  • Intel Facing a Formidable Foe in ARM [View article]
    I will check into this argument. I have a Semiconductor M&A group and these bias posts are as credible as the biased research coming out of seasoned analyst. I just want the data, I can create my own biased opinion and conclusion. I still say sales rules when technology is not 5 times better. Intel needs to just sell. ARM is not tested they just have won the low hanging fruit contest. Intel could unseat this growth without having a better product. Lack of demand will crush any company only focused on mobile handheld IC. I am not convinced the user will stay with small devices if a killer app comes out that runs on the PC. We are approaching a saturated market in mobile handheld, and these companies are giving them away while trying to charge users excessive connection fees which are plummeting. Look at the empirical data. Battery power and processing power are still a huge issues for mobile handhelds, Palm has the best platform if you really want to put technology head to head and Apple knows it. Palm doesn't know how to evangelize their company. Besides, I am not creating a doc and wrecking my vision on that little ass keyboard and screen for anyone.

  • Why Apple Is Worth $80 [View article]
    As long as people approach markets this way you can make quite a bit of money. I wonder what makes people play with their hard earned money in denial. The empirical evidence tells you everything you need to know about company valuation and the price you should pay. Any extra price movement is momentum which has a end game.
