Twitter tanks and becomes fodder for M&A chatter again
Twitter Inc.’s disappointing fourth quarter and confusing comments by its executives about increased usage further confirmed its user growth has stalled, putting the company at the center of takeover chatter again.
Twitter keeps raving about its daily active user growth — so why won’t it share the actual number?
One of the bright spots in Twitter’s fourth-quarter earnings on Thursday was that the platform’s daily active user (DAU) growth is accelerating…
But why isn’t Twitter letting the world see what its actual DAUs are?
Twitter: This Thing’s Gonna Get Taken Out, Says BTIG
BTIG Research’s Rich Greenfield, who raised his rating on Twitter (TWTR) to Buy yesterday, in advance of a disappointing earnings report this morning, was resolute in his faith in the name during a chat with CNBC’s Scott Wapner and the crew of the “Fast Money: Halftime Report” segment.

VIDEO: Ten Perfect Trades
The Origins of Ten Perfect Trades
Everything starts with stocks that close in the top or bottom ten percent of the range. These setups have a 90% chance of following through in the same direction the next morning. But, they have only a 50% chance of closing above the previous day’s high (for a long), or below for a weak close.
Put simply, a strong close with a higher opening has a 50% probability of failing, when combined with the Saturation Play setup. The trigger without the setup is worthless. When you add the entry criteria, the trade is a thing of beauty.
Saturation Plays are designed to capture the move from the low to the high, or from the high to the low. The key to the trade is knowing whether or not you should expect the high or low to be made first each morning.
Once you know the setup, the opening play and the projected entry price, the trade is just a matter of placing limit orders at the correct price to begin working the trade…
On the Tape Today | 2-10-17
$PRU | Prudential Financial punches it's way through $108, a solid resistance penetrated but will it stay there? Planning a new swing trade long but on a $109.25 buy-stop above yesterday's high. The stock price has plenty of room to go. If filled the game plan is a stop loss on a close below $108. Initial target to sell @ $115.
QCOM | Qualcomm setting up a day trade short sale on a $52.50 sell stop with a target to cover @$50.25. Inside day and relative weakness make it a solid idea today after the recent momentum move lower. If the stock punches through $50 with volume, the next target is $43.
Tape Reading the SPY ETF
$SPY price action bursts through new highs as volume increases.
A good sign for a long-term move.
The danger of new longs here remains profit taking. Great traders solve this problem with intra day criteria, specifically–change from the open price. Only look for a new bid if the last price is above the open price.
If you’re swing trading the same rule applies, but you will use Monday’s open price.
