Earnings Reality Bites

Tyler Durden's picture


UPDATE: FB -17%, AMZN -0.5%, SBUX -5.3%

A quick run-down of this evening's catastrophe among the sweetheart hope stocks. From Facebook, Amazon, and Starbucks - not pretty. Top line misses, earnings misses, and outlook guides down... FB -13%, AMZN -2% (was -6%), SBUX (-6%). Via Bloomberg...

  • *AMAZON.COM 2Q SALES $12.83B, EST. $12.90B 
  • *AMZN SEES 3Q NET SALES $12.9B-$14.3B, EST. $14.11B
  • *STARBUCKS TARGETS FY13 EPS $2.04-$2.14, EST. $2.28 
  • *STARBUCKS SEES 4Q EPS 44C-45C, SAW 46C-48C, EST. 48C

But have no fear - Draghi and Bernanke have our backs... so why are all the CEOs cutting outlooks? Don't they 'believe'?

Good thing Tyler lost some credibility pumping Biderman, otherwise this post would look like Tyler knew who to publsih, like not guys that go long FB.

Way to go Tyler.  Not only do you post idiot Biderman relentlessly, you also post Junjauh, and other such idiot bears.  Your blog is a snowflake, buddy.

CNBC has a totally different look on things, and that Big PUKE Gartman will one day come to eat crow.

Super Mario will have an end like Mussolini, just a matter of time. His Italian brothers will deal with him.

"This caught me completely off guard," admits esteemed investor Dennis Gartman on CNBC's Fast Money Halftime Report.

Draghi pledged to do whatever necessary to save the euro. "And believe me, it will be enough," he said.

"Immediately I sold some of my short positions," Gartman explains. "And after comments like that, you can't cover fast enough."


I just can't laugh enough "And believe me, I can't quit laughing".

"MR Lennon Hendrix"...


Stick around, it's too early for you to be slinging so much SMACK!


Remember...He who laughs last, laughs the loudest!...By the way, I happen to think "Biderman" is one of the better analyst...As for MY MAIN MAN, none better!!

Too early?  Biderman said he would buy the IPO and then he went and put it on his conviction buy list at 31.  Biderman's logic is "Rahrah rahr rah!  Buy facebook!"  What a fucking genius!

I don't know if any of  you are logged in to comment on CNBC, but I've noticed something.  I've been trying to comment on that site and it's increasingly having technical trouble and won't let you comment.  FB is going down the tubes and this earnings show that it's not a viable machine no matter how much CNBC pumped it up that week to get people to buy.  Our market is a third world one right now, where the govt. and MSM and rich manipulate it in order to make sure HAPPY THOUGHTS HAPPY THOUGHTS.  All this news should have had it in the red tonight and them talking about it.

So AMZN earns 1 cent, a fucking penny and advises a loss for next quarter and the stock is at 217. Where are my beads. This is beyond absurd.

Tyler, you know I love you, but for pity's sake, could you use a color scheme that is actually visible? Like, oh, say, a white background?

No shit but there are voices that are painful to listen to as you run from the kitchen and dive over the dog onto the couch and go from normal to half mute to mute. That 10-15 seconds feels like eternity and makes my ears feel like bleeding when I hear 1 second of Ofuckya.
