  • Stress test roundup: How the lenders stack up vs. last year [View news story]
    So BAC is in the bottom 6 of 31 entities? So they passed, but hardly with flying colours as one commenter claimed. Yes, a low pass can indicate a more efficient use of capital, but also greater risk, so a mid field 8+% is to be preferred.

  • Why We Changed Facebook's Price Target To $88 [View article]
    Oh gosh, I fear your comment is over parochial, as I've written a dozen or more posts on other topics today, already, without as much as giving a thought to FB! That made 30 words, before the last, which is twice 15, so QED!

    So how did all the rumours start? More manipulation?

  • Google And Facebook Declare Internet Independence From Carriers [View article]
    The puzzle, GA, is why Google haven't done so already? Google Fiber and Wallet have both been around for quite a while now, but have made little inroad, so there must be barriers to this that aren't apparent. Can Apple and FB succeed where Google have failed? I can't see why it should be thus (other than that Apple can't seem to fail at anything...), but I'm looking forward to finding out; we will live in interesting times!

  • Facebook Will Improve User Engagement Through Better Ads [View article]
    Yes DP, the "group think" has always been there, as some people are strangely prone to getting hooked by FB. Or perhaps it's people like me who are "strangely" averse to anything "social", but either way, it's not a good basis on which to make investment decisions...

    It may be their policy, Alex, but according to my experience, they've done nothing to implement it; I get regular updates and invitations from both. Maybe it would be different if I used the same address for both? Trouble is, there's no limit to how many e-mail addresses anyone can acquire, and most of them for free, and with no identification requirement...

    Are they still with it? Those specs seem very ambitious; I wonder how practical they are?

  • Google And Facebook Declare Internet Independence From Carriers [View article]
    Perhaps not, M, but once the carriers have installed their networks, what extra expense do they have? Maintenance for sure, but that is pretty trivial compared to the original cost of installation, so once that is paid for, they are sitting pretty aren't they? Others could argue that they shouldn't keep on milking it as they do...

    Whatever, Google can have the best of both worlds, by speeding up its fiber roll out. I wonder what the hold up is; I expected them to be the World's biggest ISP by now!

  • Facebook's (FB) Management Presents at Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference (Transcript) [View article]
    From Sheryl K. Sandberg :

    "It's out there for purposes of this audience worth noting..."

    "Depends ability the target much more exclusively..."


    "...how likely they got way they got way to be down purchase center..."

    "And we have half now as well and dedicate and increasingly numbers of clients who want to try..."

    "That was it some not?"

    Wow, inspiring, confidence building stuff! I guess some of it must have got lost in the transcription?

    "What’s talk can I people are here, really"??? I hope that's a transcription error!

  • Facebook Will Improve User Engagement Through Better Ads [View article]
    It's not just bots, PD; there's also the fact of multiple accounts; I've got two (to match two of my e-mail boxes, of which I have 7 in all, but not with any more correspondents I'm likely to try to reach via FB) and have long since stopped using both...
