  • Twitter Stock Crashes 20% as User Growth Fizzles

    Social media giant Twitter suffered a stock price crash of more than 21 percent in intraday trading today following the release of the company’s Q3 report. The company reported its slowest growth in years as many companies also bought less advertising on the platform at the same time. Variety reports that despite beating Wall Street financial forecasts for the third quarter of 2020, Twitter’s poor user growth for the time period and an extremely uncertain advertising forecast for Q4 has caused the company’s stock to crash more than 20 percent.
  • Anyone nibbling at the markets? (vanity)

    10/30/2020 11:13:42 AM PDT · by CodeJockey · 39 replies
    I have some cash parked on the sidelines (stable investment) in my companies 401k. With the little pull back we've seen, strong GDP numbers, possible CV19 vaccine on the horizon and the election, it may a buying opportunity, or maybe not. I only have the option to buy (or sell) at the closing price of the day. Thinking of picking up some shares of a S&P 500 tracker fund we have available as an investment at the days end. I'm definitionally not looking investment advise, just wondering how fellow Freepers are feeling about the market going forward?
  • november election and stock stop loss / stop limit orders

    any wisdom out there on the november election and setting stock stop loss or stop limit orders? i am currently figuring that the worst is if biden wins or the outcome is placed into limbo pending recounts. if this is the case, presumably there will be a dip in stock prices. however, will the dip last very long? trump will still be in office until january 20, 2021, which means that stocks would seem still relatively safe up until january 20, 2021. so, january 19 (eg january 15) or slightly earlier might make a good time to sell stocks manually....

    The silver shimmer of Silicon Valley is replacing the oil slicks that once gilded the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) in black gold. That silver shimmer is, and it's replacing the longest-tenured DJIA component: ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM), effective Aug. 31. Exxon's removal adds another red flag to a series of headwinds that have pushed its shares down over 40% for the year. Is there more pain ahead, or is there reason to believe Exxon can turn it around? The fall of ExxonMobil Going back a few years further to 2007, Exxon was the largest company by market capitalization. Limited supply...
  • Apple’s Stock Is About to Split 4-for-1. Here’s What It Means for Investors.

    AAPL -0.12% SPX +0.20% DJIA +0.27% MSFT +0.30% Apple’s 4-for-1 stock split goes into effect at the close of trading Friday. In theory, stock splits like this one don’t mean much. If today you own 100 shares worth $500 each, on Monday you will have 400 shares worth $125 each. But it turns out that splits matter more than you’d logically think. The last Apple (ticker: AAPL) split was 7-for-1, in June 2014. There were 2-for-1 splits in February 2005, June 2000, and May 1987. Had Apple never split the stock, the current share price would be around $28,000. Apple...

    Apple delivered another blockbuster quarterly earnings report Thursday and with the Apple stock price approaching $400 a share the company announced that it would have a stock split this year. The company behind the iPhone had Wall Street estimates for revenue at $52.2 billion, but the company flew by those numbers hitting $59.7 billion. That is an increase of 11 percent compared to the quarter a year ago. A four-for-one stock split will be offered “to make the stock more accessible to a broader base of investors,” according to the earnings release. At the close of the market on August...
  • Kodak Stock Is Soaring. Here’s What’s Behind the Renaissance; Company Re-inventing itself to be a drug making company

    Eastman Kodak shares are enjoying a renaissance. Shares were up 160% early Wednesday morning, building on Tuesday’s incredible 200%-plus gain. That gain was just a prelude. By midday, Kodak shares were up more than 340%. Fresh capital and a new business are the reasons for the eye-popping rise. The question for investors now is how high can shares go? It isn’t an easy question to answer. There are no analysts covering the company and no target prices to help investors. What’s more, the company is taking a government loan to build a drug-ingredient business. Kodak (ticker: KODK), has been and...

  • Twitter Stock Moves Lower After Trump Threatens Section 230 Action

    05/28/2020 1:20:38 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 22 replies ^ | May 28, 2020
    Twitter, Inc. (TWTR) shares fell more than 2% off of their reaction highs earlier this week after President Trump announced plans for an executive order that would enable regulators to rethink Section 230 – a law designed to protect tech companies from third-party content liability. The move comes shortly after Twitter flagged one of the president's tweets about mail-in voting fraud with a fact-checking label, drawing a bout of criticism. While the executive order would mark an escalation in Trump's war against tech companies, the implementation would be up to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Federal Trade Commission...

    The Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act prohibits securities of a company from being listed on any of the U.S. securities exchanges if the company has failed to comply with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board’s (PCAOB) audits for three years in a row. The bill would also require public companies to disclose whether they are owned or controlled by a foreign government, including China’s communist government.

Slaoui, a veteran Big Pharma exec, holds 156,000 stock options that increased in value...

    Signs are mounting that Gilead’s (NASDAQ:GILD) remdesivir is at least somewhat effective in treating the novel coronavirus. Those signs are positive for the world, and for GILD stock. On April 3, the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the European Union’s equivalent of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, recommended that remdesivir be approved for compassionate use.According to the EMA, “These [compassionate use] programmes are only put in place if the medicine is expected to help patients with life-threatening, long-lasting or seriously debilitating illnesses, which cannot be treated satisfactorily with any currently authorised medicine.”The agency reported that remdesivir is active against the novel...
