Well, we did Blackberry...a small, delicate fruit that is easily squashed.  We did Apple, a fruit (symbolic of America) that is easily bruised and once bruised becomes rotten to the core.  So what does that leave us with?  How about a fruit that for once represents reality...the durian.  It's big, ugly, covered in spikes, and stinks to high hell.  Anybody care to market the Durian brand smartphone?

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.

More and more people using FB on mobile devices, not prone to clicking ads.

And for the record, I'm not much of a FB guy, but I have never, not even once, clicked on an ad on FB.

What's Facebook?

I do not have complete records from your time.  Much was lost.  The best I have been able to determine is that 'the FaceBook' was a movie, or a massively-parallel software game based on a movie.

It became popular just before the Last War.

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

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.
