Facebook Plunges Into Bear Market, Wipes Out $132 Billion In Value.




Well that escalated quickly: FB is now down over 20% from its closing highs, losing over $130 billion in market value and erasing all of post-Q1 earnings gains, making Mark Zuckerberg $16 billion poorer, and officially entering a bear market.

Is it any wonder he has been selling to the max...?



Need a drink Mark?

All within minutes.
Almost every analyst covering Facebook had a strong buy, or a buy rating on it. Useless bums.

A guy I worked with was did stay-at-home day trader during dot.com boom and bust. One day during an elevator ride he told me he lost $2M in a single day. My eyes popped out, but I kept my cool and calmly told him "Now I know why you work here." This is why paying off your mortgage is the safest investment.

I wonder if this drop was arranged somehow by pissy people on Wall Street (with connections to the media) to punish Facebook for the revelation by Rob Goldman, their chief of advertising, that Russia actually did not influence the election via Facebook at all. This made it much harder for the press to keep lying about it, and they really didn't like that.

That's what I keep telling my wife.....Honey, you did not not say "yes" when i asked you to marry me 30 years ago, for my money. I had no money.
She said.......It wasn't the money. I married you for the credit cards.

Analysts have started to downgrade FB. Right after it crashes. LOL. My dog could have done better. She recommends Petsmart.

One thing I learned working at Schwab is that analyst recommendations are actually worse than useless. The worst results come from buying stocks rated "strong buy"! The second worst are the stocks rated "strong sell".

Best results are from stocks rated "hold" or not rated at all.

Fuckbook can burn. I successfully avoided its clutches from the very beginning and can proudly say I outlasted its rise and now decline. Hopefully it goes off into obscurity like GeoCities pages, My Space, and Friendster. Imagine how much better the world would be without FB.

You know those so-called friends and family that try to have an "intervention", and corner you one night at home and start signing you up for Facebook against your will? Those fuckers can burn, too. I outsmarted 'em all!

If FB burns to the ground, it will get replaced by something similar. FB provided an effective form of communication. The need for better communication has always existed since prehistoric times. Wether it's hand signals, smoke signals, pigeons, TV, radio, radar, telephone, or internet, if there is a better faster and cheaper form of communication, it will succeed.

"SEC May Want To Take A Look": Facebook Insiders Dumped $4.1 Billion Weeks Ahead Of Record Crash.

Bloomberg has also picked up on this insider selling deluge, and writes that "nine Facebook insiders combined to sell about $4.13 billion worth of stock since the Cambridge Analytica data-mining scandal first surfaced on March 17."

Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg accounted for 85 percent of the total, according to data from InsiderInsights.com, which analyzes such transactions. The social media giant’s stock fell as much as 24 percent in late trading Wednesday after second-quarter sales and user growth disappointed investors.



The acceleration in selling is notable because as Gartman, and we, showed yesterday, that compares with $4.31 billion in all of 2017. And while the traditional excuse is that "the sales were part of pre-determined trading plans" the sharp acceleration in 2018 selling, and especially in recent months, should raise some eyebrows, perhaps those of the regulators, because as Gartman - who will have the last words - writes:

"The selling was of such massive size and such recent hurried nature that one had to take note of Zuckerberg’s liquidation as a clear indication of future potential problems. Those problems were made clear last evening. The SEC may want to take a look!"

Then again, with everyone's pension invested in facebook in some capacity, the last thing the SEC will dare to do is cause a market "event" by taking a close look at the one company in which as of last quarter seemingly everyone was invested...

For perspective, FB was last at today's price on April 23rd of this year so the loss is only rewinding back to then. So they lost 3 months of gains, big deal.

It's basically a non-story. Maybe hyped by the media out of hatred for Facebook's throwing cold water on the Russia hype.

FB provided an effective form of communication.

Facebook was a cul-de-sac on the path to better communication. People are finally realizing it, too. Twitter started the same year as Facebook, and yet somehow has become more relevant while Facebook is quickly becoming grandma's scrapbooking room. Instagram started as just pretty pictures and now is almost its own communication platform. All I ever saw on Facebook was people's falsely curated lives and shameless look-at-me-ism. And I am so glad I don't have any horror stories about random creeps from 25 years ago reaching out--if we haven't talked since high school, there's a reason!
