I wonder who has the pockets deep enough to keep losing tens of millions at a pop?   Wonder what the motivation is?   I don't see any financial sense in doing this with such a huge stake.

these bottom tick stories are becoming a ZH staple contrarian trade; they are at best sophomoric and trite; i dont give a sh*t about up or down votes; i'm sure you can come up with much better analysis than knee-jerk index banging commentary which you purport to disdain.

'It ain't real until news of pink-slip Friday's at AAPl, Goog, Nefflx, AMZN, FB, Twatter - and a few others, become the weekly norm.'


And I stand by it.   Only when the Bullshit ad-revenue and i-trinket companies begin to falter, will you know we have arrived.
