Twitter (TWTR) Crashes on 2Q'15 Results and Guidance

Twitter (TWTR) had a gap open this morning (02015.07.29). Sadly, it was a down gap of 11%. Yesterday's close: $36.54; today's open: $32.54. TWTR hit a new 52-week low of $31.30 shortly after today's open.

Yesterday I bought some TWTR at 11 $Pi; today I could have bought it at 10 $Pi.

Interestingly, yesterday the start of the 5:00pm local Fox News displayed a bunch of tweets about the first female to become a NFL coach. The newscasters read the tweets. I joked to my wife: All they're doing is reading tweets to us. Look at all the tweets on the TV screen. Why has Twitter stock been such a bad investment?

The free cash flow as after $4.7 billion in capital expenditures. I also liked this tidbit: "We added more than 2 million new wireless subscribers."

Approaching the Era of Trillion Dollar Market Values

Approaching the era of trillion dollar market values? I noticed a couple of days ago that Facebook's market value hit a quarter trillion dollars. Today, I noticed Google's market value is approaching a half trillion dollars, while Apple's market value is close to hitting three-quarter trillion dollars. I can't predict the next femto-second, so I'm not going to predict when the first trillion dollar company happens.
