Keep that TWTR love going fellas... down 9% after hours. Anyone holding this dog is headed for even more pain. It's not a viable company.

Probably a reaction to Cory Booker or Michelle Obama or whoever saying a President can't run the country through Twitter. There goes that business model.

I disagree completely, it was because they banned Milo Yiannopoulos.

Tomorrow Verzion will buy TWTR to add to their portfolio of internet relics.

Y'all see what Marissa looks like as of late? Woman looks like she's aged 10 years. She also speaks like an automaton on news interviews. Kinda off putting. At least she'll get a nice, golden parachute (on top of the ridiculous comp she's pulled in already).

I'm still holding a small TWTR position from back in the day. Just added about 50% to it post market around 9-10% down. Do I think there's a real business here? No, I don't, and I don't care. I play movements and buy and flip. There's always going to be some business here to be had and I assume that it'll recover a little and eventually there'll be some sort of buyout rumour and I can make 10-15% on it. I don't care whether it's profitable or not, it's just a flip.

Sold off about 1/3 of my AAPL position at 101.5 today, mostly all stuff I bought at Brexit so I think around 92-94 if I remember correctly. I hope and expect Apple will eventually do the 110-130 range but for now I've trimmed and expect short term it'll come back down to that 95 mark more or less and I'll buy back in.

You sir, are going to lose money.

Twitter is a shit product with major usability issues. I had some meager hope for them with periscope, but Facebook live has crushed them on that front already.

The tragic cop shooting where the lady broadcasted threw it in the limelight. I'm sure fb execs felt pretty amazing and shitty when that happened.

At this point I'm just buying down so i can get closer to getting out with a breakeven or a bit of money. Average cost is about 17 at this point so if it comes up from this drop I'm planning to sell right where it was before the report and I'm out of this one. Probably my longest holding, hell. Started buying it originally in the 40's then sold and rebought in the high 20's.

MU - tough call.... I sold my QCOMM at 55 and thought it would come back down to around 50 but instead it went up to 60+. Mu has been slowly chugging along upwards and I'm ready to sell around 15-16 but I'm wondering if it'll hit 18. I think I'll just sell and move on instead of holding out for higher. Time will tell if this was a good or bad move.

Sold more AAPL today at 104. Was planning to hold this block of shares until 110-115 but sold today and if it hits sub 100 again I'll rebuy.

TWTR culture also has a problem of shutting down right wing activists in favor of left wing activism.

Master-Classter, I would abandon the position if I were you and stay far away from that stock.
post #10122 of 11193
Oh come on...its not shutting down right wing activists. It is shutting down professional trolls who are engaged in a targeted, hateful campaign against specific people they don't like.

You can still have all the crazy opinions you want on twitter, but if you act like that Milo douche, you're going to get banned. As you should be, from any public platform. SF would ban someone for doing far less.

It is absolutely in twitter's best interests to swing the ban hammer at people who are making the place a hostile environment.

Earnings season has been a pleasant surprise. Now all I want is a nice VRX rally.

This is "averaging down," right?

^ Maybe? :-)


I'm not holding TWTR because I know anything about or care about the company, I'm just in it to make some money on the stock. Hopefully it'll come back up and I can get the hell out and make a little money in between.


GLF dropped a bit today and I doubled my position around $3. Planning to sell these shares at $3.7.
