    That whole hearing was absolute garbage.

    The entire purpose was to make people a feel as if the govt is doing something.

    "Look at us! We are questioning Mark Zuckerberg!"

    A couple of my takeaways from the Senate hearings.
    1) We all have our reasons for hating Zuckerberg. But he did well as a speaker (albeit in a position of defending a business that may be pretty slimy). I know there were rumors that he wanted to be a politician before; I wonder how he feels about those aspirations now that he saw how they waste their time and how stupid they collectively are, lol.

    2) Well, at least Facebook owns WhatsApp, right? If people got a problem with other parties eavesdropping on their info, Facebook has got just the solution for you! It's like Facebook got both sides covered. The side where only the number of users matter, and you don't know what exactly people are doing therefore you're just blasting out an ad to a vast audience and hoping it hits the right users (WhatsApp). And the other side where you can tell advertisers exactly what people are doing, and have the software to efficiently target ads (Facebook).

    I am wondering how far FB will go after Cambridge Analytica issue.

    Advertising revenue is the main source for FB. Even Mark Zuckerberg said that he did not see any significant impact on it, no one knows about it in the future.

    Ad prices are likely to surge because people spend less time on Facebook than before, leading to a reduction in ad impressions. The number of users in the US and Canada has declined in the previous quarter.

    Facebook (FB) Elliott Wave Analysis: Pullback Remains In-progress

    Facebook ticker symbol: $FB short-term Elliott wave analysis suggests that the rally to $203.55 ended primary wave ((1)). Down from there, the pullback in primary wave ((2)) remains in progress in 3, 7 or 11 swings to correct cycle from 3/26/2018 low. The internals of that pullback shows an overlapping structure thus suggesting that the correction takes the form of corrective structure i.e either (W),(X),(Y) or (W),(X),(Y),(X),(Z) structure within the intermediate degree.

    Below from $203.55 high, the pullback is proposed to be unfolding as Elliott wave double three structure where Intermediate wave (W) ended at 193.11, Intermediate wave (X) ended at 200.75, and Intermediate wave (Y) of ((2)) remains in progress. The internal of Intermediate wave (W) also unfolded as a double three structure where Minor wave W ended in 3 swings at $199.31, Minor wave X ended $202.24 and Minor wave Y of (W) ended at $193.11 as a Flat. Up from there, intermediate wave (X) also unfolded in 3 swings as Elliott Zigzag structure with Minor wave A ended at $199.40, Minor wave B ended at $195.98 and Minor wave C of (X) ended at $200.83 high.

    Down from there, intermediate wave (Y) of ((2)) remains in progress as another double three structure. Internals of that decline ended Minor wave W in 3 swings at $192.22 and Minor wave X ended at $197.45. Near-term focus remains towards $188.91-$186.90, which is 100%-123.6% Fibonacci extension area of Intermediate wave (W)-(X) to end primary wave ((2)) pullback. Afterwards, the stock is expected to find buyers for primary wave ((3)) higher ideally or should do a 3 waves reaction higher at least. We don’t like selling it into a proposed pullback.

    Facebook is also applying artificial intelligence and virtual and augmented reality technologies to various products, which may increase Facebook user engagement even further, helping to further generate attractive revenue growth from advertisers in the future.

    True, panic sell offs like this always turn out to be good trading opportunities.

    FB has seen price troubles recently, but I like it right now. Been looking at relative charts of FB and TWTR.

    First of all, FB by itself has been in a downchannel. But there aren't as many sellers down here as there was in April. Doesn't look like they can push it lower right here.
    [​IMG]

    FB has headline risk, countries want them to testify about their data collection, and Trump wants an investigation (also affects GOOGL etc.).

    But one thing, I think FB will start outperforming TWTR right now. Chart comparing FB to TWTR, this is the bottom for FB in relation to TWTR -- that's my read of the charts.
    [​IMG]

    FB has a P/E of 20, revenue growth rate of 30%, with 84% gross margin, 25% ROE, and 0 debt.
    One negative thing about those numbers is they keep warning about increased costs.
    One positive slant to those numbers is it finally seems like Whatsapp is close to being monetized, but it's still not right now. Which is why FB is at this place right now.

    Throwing in the FB/SPY relative strength too.

    In this blog, I want to share some short-term Elliott Wave charts of Facebook which we presented to our members in the past. Below, you see the 1-hour updated chart presented to our clients on the 12/02/18. Showing that Facebook ended the cycle from 09/27/18 peak in red wave III at 11/20/18 low (128.45).

    As Facebook ended the cycle from 09/27/18 peak, we expected a bounce to occur in red wave IV. Above from 11/20/18 low (128.45), the bounce unfolded in an Elliott Wave double correction structure. We advised members that Facebook ideally should continue lower. Therefore, we expected sellers to appear in the sequences of 3, 7 or 11 swings. At the 100 - 1.236 Fibonacci extension of black ((W))-((X)) which came at around 141.41-147.77 area and that was the first area for sellers to appear.

    In the last Elliott Wave chart. You can see that the stock reached the blue box area (141.41-147.77) and reacted nicely lower. If traded our blue box area shown in the chart above. Then, any trades from that area were risk-free, which means the stop-loss should be moved to break even, targeting lower levels. Do please keep in mind that the 1-hour chart which I presented may have changed already. And as long as Facebook doesn't break 11/20/18 low (128.45). A double correction in red wave IV higher still can't be ruled out. This blog should just illustrate how accurate our blue boxes are, and how our members trade our 3-7 or 11 swings strategy.

    Facebook (FB) Unfriends Privacy
    Dec 19, 2018

    Facebook (FB) is down over 6% today after headlines last night that the company had exposed users’ information to other companies, and while the stock isn’t at new lows it’s still nearly 40% from record highs posted as recent as July 25th. There are two ways to think about the catastrophe that the company has been for investors over the last five and a half months: declines in market cap in dollar terms and declines in percentage terms. In dollar terms, the losses are staggering. The company’s market cap has fallen from a peak of $629bn in July to $394bn today. That drawdown makes prior retreats in the company’s value look like nothing. In percentage terms, things have actually been worse though. Following its IPO, Facebook retreated more than 50% from its high water mark and in both 2014 and 2016, the stock saw drawdowns of over 20%. Facebook is currently trading $7 (~5%) above its November low of $126.85, so as the stock faces pressure from its latest round of legal woes, that is the line in the sand for the stock going forward.
