Not when you evaluate on the domestic deals they passed.  GOOG, FB, etc. 

 

Most other domestic deals they've done is shit.  Oversea deals are all great.

Yeah, I mean I own TWTR and could quote you guys telling me a year or two ago it was a shit company and not to get involved, so pot kettle black thing, but I wouldn't touch Yahoo. I just don't like them. I think they're a dying company that has stuck around some how. I don't really like Twitter all that much, but I don't think they're going anywhere. Will they ever figure it out and start pumping up those multiples, I don't see it, but at current values and with all the movement, I'll play around with them, make some money, and get out by the end of the year if I can. There's some value there at least so I feel comfortable holding them because they're worth something. Yahoo on the other hand, well I just don't like them and don't want to get involved with them. It's sentiment instead of rationale, in the same way that I just like Disney and Apple and TSLA will put in plenty even when they might be going down, but I believe in them more than Twitter and I believe in Twitter more than Yahoo etc.

Also today I sold my CHK position at $7 and most of my GLF position around $6.25-6.5 and already have buy orders set for if they drop 10-20% as they often do. I don't think this oil thing is quite over yet and I'm hoping it'll drop down again at least one last time. Friday XOM and CVX report so let's see how that goes...

Both TWTR and YHOO are shit companies and you shouldn't get involved. With all the options out there for investment, you want to "play around" with these 2 dogs? It makes little sense.

I recently bought ETSY in the mid 8's, that looks like a nice play. I bought GOOG after it's earnings drop.

I have a real knack for selling winners and buying losers.

Loving my FB right now.

It must be great being an employee at Facebook. Fantastic place to work -- great benefits, great pay, and a ton of stock options that are worth some serious dough if you've been there for a couple years.

Given FB's recent stock prices, I originally had bought some around 100-105, then when it was around 95 or something I loaded up and when it popped last time, I sold it all off at 116 and was waiting to buy back in.

This round, I started nibbling at 110 and had another buy at 105 and a big buy at 105 but those two never came. So I wasn't holding a whole lot really but I prefer to take safer risks if that makes any sense. This morning I cleared my position and sold everything at 121. Bought 110, sold 121, not as much stock as I'd like, but an 11% return and I'm ok with that.

Will FB's shares probably climb a bit higher across the day? I suspect so since it seems to have some momentum, but my strategy is about knowing when to get out and take the money off the table. I have a buy order already set again for 110, same as before. Even if takes weeks or months or never, I don't care, I'll wait and in the meantime there are other companies I can do this with.

Looking forward to seeing what happens with AMZN and LNKD tonight. I originally thought LNKD was going to suck and drop 10-15%, and it may still, but if FB has done well because of advertising, then maybe LNKD has a chance. I'm honestly not too hopeful though. I think LNKD will drop a lot based on the revenue issue but also user growth. Still can't believe I was playing with it from 200-240 a few months ago and thought I was getting a good deal at 180+. Where the hell did 100/share come from, crazy. I guess you just never know. I'm still buying and selling from 110-120 bits and pieces to lower my costs over all but I think I'm still average at like 130-135 or something. Maybe this round will get me out. Hoping it'll drop to 100-110 so I can add a lot and sell when it eventually makes it back to 120/125.

I'm also a little worried about NFLX... Got quite a bit in there, bought heavy at $96, then $94, and if it hits $89 or I'm going in fairly hard and will wait for a recovery. I know they have competition etc and raising prices etc but I still think they're doing great. I also own DIS and will grab AMZN if they drop so sort of hedging the bet with competitors.

Funny you posted this, My FB basis is at 57 and I was wondering whether today should be my exit point. I wouldn't be a buyer at this level for sure.

More than likely it will pull back from here, you should be able to get shares in the 110-111 range where it should have support.

yeah well makes sense. Just different strategies I guess. I'm a trader, get in get out, that's the game. I also understand buying on dips and shoring up positions and holding longer term and getting dividends in between.

I remember someone talking about his position in IBB a year or so ago. Don't hear much about that lately...

I knew Icahn was awfully quiet lately about AAPL.
