Their product never was effective. If you can't track your CCP into actual sales, it's a shot in the dark on how you're doing. A 20% click-rate is not that bad. If they want to improve it then they need to use effective tactics to do so. To simply stop using FB ads and claim it is in-effective is a reduction fallacy. They simply lack the personnel to use them effectively.

Man, those poor fucking commercials in the gold market - closing so many of their short positions and taking the long side of the trade right at the start of what's sure to be a massive leg down - taken to the cleaners by the spec's again.  When will those nutty bullion banks ever learn to follow the trend?  /sarc

Tue, 05/15/2012 - 15:46 | 2428631 fonzannoon
fonzannoon's picture

Al please expand on that. You referring to the miners? Because this has already been a big fkin leg down.

Tue, 05/15/2012 - 15:57 | 2428700 Al Huxley
Al Huxley's picture

I was actually referring to the commercial short and long positions as reported on the Commitment of Traders report.  Commercial traders are always net short, partly because they write the calls to sell to the speculative longs.  At gold peaks they're typically 3:1 short to long.  Right now (as of last Tuesday) they're 1.55:1 short to long, which is as low as I've ever seen the ratio.  So odds are that now's closer to the bottom of the drop in gold rather than the start of a big leg down (hence the /sarc notation). 

 

As for the miners, I'm ambivalent.  There are a couple I like, that have been sold down beyond all reason (baby out wiith the bathwater kind of thing), but the majors seem to suffer from massive incompetence for the most part, and a lot of the juniors have been overpromising and under-delivering for so long that the sector is kind of getting what it deserves.  That said, I still think they're overdone and I'm pretty sure the really big leg up is still to come.

Just had a huge move up, this leg down was coming, pretty ugly out there today though. Look at the fundamentals, lots of juniors have great prospects if gold holds above 1200.

I thought that was a story about the crashing gold but no, not here. Can gold survive the death of the euro? It doesn't look like it.

Seriously, gold is the worth thing to hold in 2012. All the people who claimed that gold was good in times of crisis have lost all credibility. That doesn't make the Fed right, but gold is really terrible when a fiat currency dies. Apple is probably better, making good products that people buy.

LOL, umm, no. What happens is the commodity will go down for a period, as long as the dollar stays up, when the dollar goes, guess what goes bezerk?  See gold is about investing , not gambling.  You can actually buy and hold gold, unlike your silly tech stocks which are based on a few people renting some space in some office building. There is nothing to them, they can go poof in a second.  Gold has , lets see a solid history going back to all our history.

 

In uncertain times do you invest your future on a proven commodity, or some hipsters in an office with a fad, an idea, and a few computers.

zynga, facebook, groupon, linked in, apple.  In 10 years people are going to look back at these stocks and think.  WTF were we thinking.  Sort of the way you look back at old photos and look at your hair and clothes choices.

My aapl to $525 call when it was at $600 is right on target.  I still have the DJ moving to 12,225 before Bernanke does his next thang, too.  Trade is in line.  Have at it space monkeys.

Ha !  Even though Bernanke's secretary pushed the "Transmit" button in her boss's iB account at 10:30 par usual (aka "fed open market operations"), Beezelbub awoke from his dogmatic slumber (perhaps an alert from his ZH RSS feed) and took a flaming '9 circles of Hell' dump at noon.

CNBS is blaming reports of money leaving the Greek banking system for the late-day plummet.  If so, looks like that money went into GOOG, ouzo and UUP, the only big things up today (aside from lovely inverse funds). 

The GOOG uptick is likely bad news for the Fakebook IPO -- with GM taking their advertising dollars elswhere, Gaybama may be the sole big advertiser left -- perhaps videos of Geithner telling us "a lower market is cheap, and that's good, because more people can afford it."  Only Dumbo had bigger ears.

Apple pretty much has two products: the iPad and the iPhone.

And who is Apple relying on to buy their fucking iCrap? The completely broke, debt-loaded U.S consumer who, as we've confirmed over and over again, is loading up on debt to maintain their current standard of living.

What the hell is Apple going to do? Have financing options on their iPads and iPhones? They're going to have to if nobody has the financial resources to purchase their iShit.

I see a calamitous end to all of this virtual bullshit in the near future. Not just Apple. It'll be Facebook, Zynga, LinkedIn, Groupon; all companies who rely on consumers to purchase the products from the companies who bought ad space.

FUCKING STUPID.

Hello Apple sells more Macs than ever and will continue to do so as increasingly more people make the switch from PC to Mac. Then you have Apple TV coming out... Don't worry they'll do fine. Can't say the same about others. You can see right away who the Windows users are lol.

You say that as if you're completely confident that Americans/Westerners have been buying these products from their stashes of sparkling new cash in their savings accounts.

Apple TV and Macbook Air are not going to save Apple.

I guarantee it.

What a sad little fanboy you are. Macs will never be more than a tiny little niche market for users with more money than brains. I know it hurts you terribly, but go back and read Reggie's research on Apple. You might actually learn something.........but I doubt it.

you will learn that reggie has been dead wrong about apple, as well as this site, apple had fantastic earnings, apple has been due for a pullback, reggie's unit sales were wrong , margins were wrong, and most recently he was totally lost on the growth of apple in china, so why don't you learn something and compare reggie's numbers with actuals?  why don't you do that, instead of regurgitating nonsense from something you read that has been consistently wrong, this stock will need to go to 150 for reggie to get his credibility back on apple, so far his call has been a money loser.....idiot

TV is an absolutely horrible market to be entering right now. I have two televisions that I haven't been able to give away, that's right, free TVs. I'm going to have to resort to organizing a "Shoot Your TV Day" at one of the local ranges to get rid of them. Market share shrinking all over, people waking up en masse how much of a liar their TVs are.

Why, this AAPL news is just as unexpected as the dot com bust, the tech wreck, and housing blowout were! Only a superhuman could have detected the Bubbles forming in them! Only a superhuman could possibly have detected one forming in AAPL and nasdaq in 2012, right? Jim Cramer said Buy: so what could go wrong???

So it's extra amazing how every two-bit Paper 'Tard (and their brother) who couldn't see jack sh*t in any of those transparent bankster contrivances can always seem to sniff out a "bubble in gold" like a Blue Tick Bloodhound on a mangy 'coon.

Bizarro World, my home.

People were going to sell AAPL stock at some point after the run the stock has had.  Profits should be taken lest they evaporate.

"The Fruit of Knowledge has met its Societal Match?"

     It takes a very special apiary bee to pollinate the aapl's money tree - does it not? Sadly, the iBee's are in disarray. Their homing mechanism has been hijacked by a hybrid orchard of 'Floral FaceBook's' that substantiates the iFruit decomposition,... having a falling out with the flower du`jour, deep in the iconic valley of infatuation for a less pithy fragrance of hive solidarity?

NASDAQ100 isn't looking so healthy.

Fortunately I grew up during the original tech bubble.  It's made me quite resistant to the Apple and Facebook hype.

I look around, shake my head in amazement, and buy the fucking dips in gold.

Maybe because my designed and $$$ MacBook Air does indeed crash more than my generic, but cheap Toshiba lapdog with Windows 7?

Then there is the directly annoying stuff:

Java doesn't work and Apple/Oracle - I don't really give a shit who - cannot be arsed to fix it. In general many MacOS applications have the look, feel and level of support one gets for gratis on Linux: Lots of dedicated users with opinions but nothing verified and ducumented. Generally, there is not much information on how to fix anything from Apple, "support" seems to be "We got your money already, now go Google it yourself - Cunt!"

Maybe people just realise: "Shit, I went and paid extra for this?", "I thought this would just work"?? The Buying Apple Experience is like having voting for Obama and then slowly being forced to realise that he is at the same time more evil than Bush and more effective at being evil!

Sorry, I was looking for an expensive cocktail dress.

But since you're here, do you happen to have anything in a low-priced guillotine expressly designed for Chinese spammers and online trolls?  Now THAT is a purchase that I would be willing to consider!
