  • Twitter: The Undervalued Social Giant [View article]
    Since we are into is another one: some companies bad news end up with a valuation of Zero, Nil, Nada.

    Some companies' good news gone on for a very very long time.

    So how do you know when the good news has ended or the bad news has ended to sell or buy? You are saying you can time the market? Weren't a number of articles written about Twitter saying the bottom was now in because the news was so bad it could't get any worse? $37 a share, at $32 a share, and again at about $27 a share?

    Clearly your simple truth about selling / buying on good news and bad news is a falsehood of epic proportions?

    Happy investing to all.

    reardongalt...I am here for the same reasons everyone else is: It is a free world mate, I can read, I can comment.

    Better than that, I am here because some people are either completely unethical or very close to it. IF you write an article stating that you think Twitter is a speculative buy, then that is fine. However, when you write an article positing no ends of ridiculous assumptions that clearly ain't gonna be happening anytime soon (since the guys running the company actually told us so!) and it hasn't happened over the past 8 years, then yeah, I am here to debunk the falsehood.

    From Twitter was above $40 I have been saying this...and a lot more.

    As for the truth being obvious: I have been calling out every long article on Twitter since above $40, and I have been correct. you and all the rest of longs have been wrong. That is the only relevant truth at the moment.

    Happy investing to all.

  • Twitter: The Value Of The Influencer Network [View article]
    I took the time to read it because I promised to keep all you Twitter longs honest, in the name of ethical investment research. Ignoring GAAP earnings, quoting buys without doing a valuation...and stating a buy on an 8 year loss making company from the price was more than 40% higher, and still quoting "Buy Twitter"...are reasons enough.

  • Twitter: The Value Of The Influencer Network [View article]
    Well, I have time to read KoacNation's comments, which have thus far been completely spot on, unlike my good friend Stone Fox Capital, who got into a tizzy with me some months back when he was pumping Twitter when the price was above $40.

    Now we are down in the $20's and he is still pumping the life out of it. Not only that, the author, rather than stick to the actual numbers as KoacNation has shown, is spewing nonsense about Q3E and Q4E...and talking about seasonality. Ridiculous if you ask me.

    Let's see if after Q4, nine years after it started, Twitter will be any closer to making a dime.

    Happy investing to all!

    Wow...Stone Fox Capital has written another ridiculous article on Twitter. Nothing new here since he has been writing them since the stock price was way in excess of 40...touting the virtues of Twitter's supposed future valuation. Monetize the user base at a higher rate? Is he for real? Wake me up when the author comes to his senses.

    Happy investing to all

  • Is Jack Back At Twitter? [View article]
    The author can moan all he wants about Jack Dorsey. Twitter is a news curating site, it's not Apple or Microsoft that is trying to innovate actual products that consumers buy. So it shouldn't be that hard to find a CEO. Suppose ( God forbid) Jack Dorsey dies, would that mean that Twitter is toast, since the company's entire future seems to be depending on him?

    Even the blind can see that Twitter has far greater problems than Jack Dorsey being the CEO. What it also says is that Twitter will be a long time coming into anything remotely called profits.

    Happy investing to all.

  • Twitter: The Undervalued Social Giant [View article]
    I gotta say that this is a pretty naive article. The author is far removed from reality. Facebook and linked have nothing in common with Twitter other than the fact they are referred to as social media stocks. That is where the comparisons stop. Everything the author posits about Twitter is pure speculation about what he thinks will happen in the future to increase monetization. The problem is we have been told this before and the results have been nothing short of disaster.

    If after 8 years of making losses the company is still undervalued, then perhaps that is because that is its true value.

    If the author shows how he calculates Twitter's future earnings based on the supposed MAU expansion and monetization efforts, while cutting costs, and is able to show that Twitter can live in the Facebook and LinkedIn world, then and only then does his thesis come anywhere close to reality. But to tell readers that because Twitter is trading at a discount to similar metrics for Facebook and LinkedIn, and hoping Twitter can execute future monetization efforts (abject failure so far) as the reason for it being undervalued is naive at best, clueless at worst.

    Happy investing to all

  • Twitter Has Probably Bottomed [View article]
    Well, this author not only has no clue, it seems he has no ethics either, or perhaps he should be forgiven for his naivety at calling "bottoms". Anyone who based their investment decision on anything this guy writes on Twitter deserves to lose every penny.

    How dumb could one get calling a stock bottom on a "rumor"? I mean come on....

  • Twitter down 7.1% day after Dorsey report [View news story]
    Yesterday I posted that the rally on the Jack Dorsey rumor was the perfect opportunity for the shorts to get an excellent entry point. Today, that prediction came through perfectly, and then some.

    Ridiculous hope and pump...then dump.

    Happy investing to all

  • Dorsey to reportedly be named Twitter's permanent CEO; shares rise [View news story]
    Another opportunity for those who want to be short to get a great entry point.The way I read this is Twitter tried to find a CEO, but no one wanted the job. So they got stuck with a guy who is not only running another company, but he decided NOT to leave that other company and come to Twitter full time.

    I can't make this stuff up!

    Happy investing to all.
