this is what happens when you pander to sjws
I wish they were public so I can short them. They're feeling the effects of the tech bubble crash as well, however, as VCs see the lack of potential in their service, and the ridiculous cuckery going on in management.
Facebook has solid growth and earnings. Twitter and all the IPOs of 2013-2015 are stillborn and were doomed to fail. The delusions of VCs and silicon valley investors is purely what made these companies' valuations.
Gawker failing when? I'd love to buy Jalopnik and its associated blogs just to disassociate it from the rest of the site.
"Hi, my name is anon, and I bought Jalopnik because I love the potential, but as long as the site was related to Jezebel and Kotaku, it could never be more than that car blog on the femnazi and SJW site. Now you won't have any headlines from them shitting up the sidebar, and I'm also putting a stop to click-baity titles. P.S. The Micra is a chick's car, deal with it".
>facebook has solid growth and earnings
I'm pretty sure the market meltdowns of 2015 raped their growth and earnings. Also Zuckerberg moving his wealth and stock to his new LLC wasn't a good sign for the investors. Some believe he isn't confident in facebook to survive in the future.
This is actually what happens when you spend your market cap on infrastructure for future dividends
buy now while cheap

Kinda like when Nick Woodman gave all those GPRO shares to charity - when they were trading near $100. Way to inspire confidence, guys.
Can someone explain to me why they'd invest in a company that doesn't make money?
I can understand buying Tesla because they have a long-term plan. But Twitter doesn't.
I'm telling you. Virtual reality is a fucking meme bubble. It's not an industry that's going to grow. You'll find that when it goes full speed people just don't bother with it. It's a gimmick and an utter meme.
because of operating expenses
they spent 700m on research in 2014
they also a lot lot lot on short term investments like 3.5b
thought, they do have 4.25b in assets with only 1.6b in debt
honestly, averaging out a little bit of money on twitter right now doesn't seem like a bad idea
Do you think that since the required specs are so high , we will see a boost in video card sales in the next few months?
Meh. I don't foresee people dropping even more money on hardware to get into virtual reality. I'm not sure what these companies are looking at that they're doubling down on VR. Tech speculation is out of control.
Look at smartwatches. It's not going anywhere despite favorable forecasts.
Haha I played a big role for a short time in the shekel shoah. I was working for one of the tech/merchandising divisions of Home Depot and had access to a lot of the Merchandising GMs and a few VPs. Home Depot is adamantly anti-drug and clearly anti-pedophilia. Showed the screen shots of Gawker pro-drug and pro-pedophile articles with Home Depot ads on the same page and the contract was dropped a few weeks after that.
Got me a lot of high fives on /pol/ and was great for a chuckle but /pol/ is pretty stupid desu senpai
say The global game market is about is about 100B in revenue. VR could disrupt things and lets say they grow the market an astounding 50% and literally everyone is wearing these shits all fucking day and google has a lock on all software development and sales.
FB' market cap is 290B
So they add 50B to that
340/290 = 1.172
if 17% return is literally the miracle scenario its probably a bad investment.
buy some junk bonds or something shit.
>they spent 700m on research in 2014
On what? They arent a science lab.
>4.25b in assets
Can you tell me what warehouse holds their assets? Does any part of that not exist in a database somewhere?
you can most likely read what they spent it on in their quarterly reports
they have a corporate office which counts as an asset, and im guessing servers? you can read about it in their reports (though i would be surprised if this even made 1% of their assets, a lot is cash and invesments)
This, VR is a sinking ship short term, if you are looking long term then you should go for it though, since it will eventually become a thing once Video cards get better over time, won't happen for the next 2-3 year maybe even 4 years though.
maybe then they'll see a sales spike
