  • It Is Still Too Early To Go Long Facebook [View article]
    Jay, no need to get smug with SMJTRUST. I am sure he read the link.

    By the way, how is James and Jason hanging in there? Staying a float? Hard these days. Wolf helping out any, give you any leads or ideas on how to stay a float? Make sure SEC is notified that you write on SA just for regulator precautions. But then again you may be okay, SAM is way too small. Take care

  • Facebook Q3 Earnings Preview: Recapturing Control Of The Narrative, And What Needs To Be Said [View article]
    Great write up. Lots of facts and very informative. I concur 150%.

    It is always nice to read something written by a professional. Others here on SA that write about FB are nothing more than retail, newbie, wanna be wall streeters who do nothing but jump on band wagons and looked to be published thinking someone will notice them.

  • Facebook Is Still A Sell [View article]
    Chris Lau,
    I am not sure who you are but you should really write something more original . You are a perfect example that this site really needs to filter who can be a qualified contributor. Seem like everyone and their grandmothers can be a contributor author writting junk like this.

    Please please please stop writting.

    Also just so you know, Barrons wrote a cover page article about 7 o r8 years ago saying that Google was over valued and was a bubble. The stock was trading aroung $200 back then and Barrons wrote that a next new search stie will come out from a dorm room somewhere and make Google fall. Google sahres was under pressure for a week or two following that story but then it recovered.

  • Facebook (FB) gets the Barron's treatment, making the cover along with an assertion it's worth $15/share. "Success in mobile is no sure thing," writes Andrew Bary, not surprisingly focusing on the rapid shift in the company's user base away from desktops. Mostly ignored by the sell-side, the firm has a whopping stock-based compensation expense. Toss this in, and even at $15, the shares would trade at 35X 2013 estimates. [View news story]
    People still read Barron's???
    Can't believe its still in business?

    But bottom line, I am glad you agree. it is what it is. Just a stock. Clicking ads or not clicking ads or Like buttons, its beyond us and not in our control or fight. Cant spend too mich time on these things we can not control. What we are in control is our money. Make money betting on the next direction of the stock. Follow the school of fishes is a nice way to confirm the direction. A simple way is to ask yourself is, did the stock close the week at the high or low of the week. Did the stock close on the high or low friday. Over all ,in the last 3 months is the stock over sold or over bought. Are the MACD and stocastics turning? When are the next earnings, are within a month or so? Can we see a run up into earnings due to being shorts taking profits? Is there a risk of a short squeeze? Is shorts covering confimred that is happening? Is the company trying to change in their approach ? Is the CEO the biggest shareholder?

    That's all trading and about trying to be on the right side of the trade. This is chess not checkers. Its just not that simple of thinking that this company has no ads and is not worth xyz b/c zuckerberg wears a hoodie. Emotions and our ideas and thoughts mean nothing when it relates to stocks and the market and trading. Who are we to say? It's about winning on our trades. That's all. Personally I hate the way zuckerberg looks, like a geek that thinks he knows it all and I want to see in pain. But that is not what is needed in trading. That is just craziness and you can not make money trading or investing that way. We trade the market we have not the one we wish we had or the one the make sense. I can assure you the stocks and the market never trades in the direction that make sense. In fact the market/stocks can be stay far longer irrationally then you can remain solvent. That's why if your trade doesn't work out for you for a day and the week one needs to cover the short and stop the lost until it gets bigger. Do not let day trades turn into over night trades b/c those out of the money day trades will turn into massive loses when you see you are holding trade for weekes or months.That is what you saw last week from the smart trades of FB. Being first to cover and the first on the long saves and makes smart traders money. With that said i am glad you are not short FB or covered .

    Not sure if you trade futures but if not I would suggest you taking a look the the ES emini S&P futures product. I have been trading it for years. Also another option is the options on the ES emini s&p contracts. Great product that teaches a trader it's just a game and not about hating a stock or loving a stock. No time for emotions. Waste a time as well. Leaving the emotions out allows one to profiting trades as too know the time to short and knowing the time to cover and go long. Trade like a machine. No emotions.

    Good luck trading and be well. Trade like a machine.

    The article was written by a person that is still short. It is disclosed on top. Also you need to not get emotional over FB. It is a stock. That is is. People can bet either way to try to make money in this game. It's all a game and money is how you keep track. It is really that simple. If you are making money then you are o. The right direction. That's a trader. If not, you need to close out and take your lost before it gets worst. True traders are the ones that know how to take a lost and limit it. Risk management. Your emotions are getting in your way. This is a game between two sides. So please just relax. I understand how one can get emotionally when losing money but you must maintain your trading rules and leave the emotion out amd cut loses early. Losing trades need to be stopped and winning trades most be left to ride. Losing trade must never be allow to be left open.

    what??? you haven't covered your FB short?
    You still short?
    You are a fool. Stop your craziness
    So you think writing this will help your position? Your are a fool if you do.
    Get out or your lost will be bigger!
    You have been warned.
    The wind has changed direction and it is best not to fight it.
    This is just a stock in this market and the market is just a game.
    money is how you keep track. Weekly charts ate meant to be read. If the week confirms a turn you turn! Its Simple , don't over think it.
    Leave your thoughts and emotion out. It's about making money and that is the bottom line. And the bottom line on FB is that the direction has changed. Cover and go long. Follow the school of fishes when they turn. Do not wait too long when the school turns or you will be left behind with the sharks to be eaten

    Well said Apoha96815. They let anyone write articles on Seeking Alpha. These guys who post their write ups thinks the more words they write the more smart they think other people may think they are. Never follow retail. Everyone who wrties on SA are retail sheep who are wanna-be wallstreet players.

  • Mark Cuban discloses he bought 150K Facebook (FB) shares at $33, but says the purchase is a trade, not an investment. Cuban also provides downbeat commentary about Facebook and its disappointing IPO: he predicts the offering will further discourage retail investors from participating in the market, and joins Jim Cramer in predicting mobile usage is bad news for the company. He also sees mobile's monetization challenges as a problem for Google (GOOG) and other online ad sellers.  [View news story]
    Once again SA is misleading readers. If you read his blog, all is stock buys are trades and none are investments:

    8th paragraph down:
    "Notice I didn’t use the word invest. I am not a investor. I just wanted to make money"
