  • Facebook: Mobile Monetization Strategy Is Clear [View article]
    The difference, st, is that JH, like myself, does not take things personally, or get emotionally involved, as you seem to do. I'm not "angry" either; these are just shares like any other, and if we're successful, will be converted to money, eventually, so why all the name calling?

  • Facebook: Mobile Monetization Strategy Is Clear [View article]
    It may apply to some, JH, but I agree, most of us realists (bears?) acknowledge that FB is doing better than we expected (far better, in my case) and it looks like it will continue to do so! That said, though the time is pretty difficult to deduce at this stage, the market will eventually become a weighing machine, even for FB.

    If Chen is so bullish, re the Z3, why hasn't he released any sales figures?

  • Bank Of America Corporation: Default Probabilities And Relative Value Update [View article]
    Make that "all" the solutions, JBB; as an engineer, I found the simplest solutions always gave the best results (though I could only rarely convince management of this; they always wanted the conventional solution...)! The principle of Occam's razor is an honorary axiom in my book, but though simple is best for the solution, you need to be very complete in your analysis: a solution, like a theory, is only valid if it accounts for ALL the known facts. Unfortunately, in the realms of finances and investing, getting hold of all the known (at least to someone) facts is problematical...

    Hey, it's not just the US; in fact on my threads I seem to interact with more europeans than yanks!

    A small(ish) space between the articles, and the left edge of the screen, would be more visually appealing though!

  • Bank Of America: A $17 Billion Bombshell In The Making? [View article]
    And it really was BIG mistake! I agree that there'll be a "next crisis" too, as any attempts at reform have been so watered down, by the big money men, that nothing has really changed from the last collapse. I think the next one will come sooner than most people expect.

    That's the way it should work, as not even BAC can shrug off an extra billion lost. Nothing's guaranteed, though, and I for one wouldn't mind it going downhill for a few months, until I can buy in myself; it's not going to go bust.

    They'll muddle through, I'm sure, but yes, it will slow things down.

    Still no hard numbers on Z3 sales, then, Michael? There's something very wrong here!

    And then, whenever an unforeseen problem comes along, you're stuck with an automatic answering service that can't deal with it; for some reason, the people who implement these automated procedures (of any kind) never seem to think of providing the contact details for whoever is supposed to deal with such problems!

  • Facebook: Persistent Insider Sales Transactions And High Valuation Make This Stock A Strong Sell [View article]
    On the other hand, they can't be used as money as long as they remain shares, and they are part of their remuneration, after all! Do you expect them to wait until retirement, before cashing in? I'm sure that, if I was an insider, I'd sell off (mostly to diversify) whenever I considered the price to be "satisfactory". That calculaton depends on what I intended to do with the money, and another opportuniy with better prospects would qualify a sale, even if I thought my own company was doing well.

    Why should it be any different, apart from the disclosure requirement?

    I agree fully, JB; a sensible investor will spread his money around, and I don't see why an insider should feel any different about this. It is, after all, part of their income, so why shouldn't they cash out, when it's convenient to do so? More significant, is that there is remarkably little insider buying going on, and if that remains so, even if the price dips significantly, then that will probably be a sign that all is not well.

  • Never 'Fall In Hatred' With A Stock - Especially Facebook [View article]
    I know of some who have made steady earnings, shorting the stock, but none off them seem inclined to trash talk it...
