whats your point its currently at 112.69
142.86 is pretty far away

(market cap would be around 838 Billion which would be about 180 billion more)

If has a boat load of cash, its working on the watch, the tv, many more new ideas, plus, the ipad numbers that everyone says are low, competitors wish they had those numbers.

I dont see a reason why the stock would drop... in the words of the price is right game- yodeleihe yodeleihe.

Yeah... flashback late 2012!
Both - $GOOG and $AAPL - were around $700, all the analysts were screaming off the top of their lungs that $AAPL is going to $1000! all while the most bullish mouthpieces on $GOOG were @ $800,

Fast forward 2 years later:
$AAPL is @ $790 pre-split (not before bottoming into the $300's in between...)
$GOOG is @ $1,100 pre-split.

It's the typical noise when a hot tech stock surges, it's as good as an uneducated guess.

On the same note, after AAPL dipped below 400 many analysts had their estimates for AAPL well below where it is now.

I have never understood the twitter hype. Tons of people with lots of money feel that since twitter has tons of users they will be able to make lots of money off of them. Yet neither the investors or twitter have figured out an effective way to make money at the level needed to be worth what they are worth. It seems to be a big gamble on the ability to monetize. Maybe I am missing something?

I remember when the same was said on $FB, don't underestimate the power of social media + ads.

I personally never said the same for FB. I bought FB in the 30s.

FB is different since you have so many people browsing on their site all the time to see whats the latest. How many people on twitter do that? Oh and I just checked my twitter home page (which I only ever go on for Amex) and I don't see a single ad. (and there is tons of empty space on the sides). If I would invest in twitter it would be after I saw consistent ad placement throughout my usage.

I do grant that my usage is minimal, but thats how I use twitter (fb also is only for deals for me). How does everyone else use it?

I would love to be proven wrong with other people experiences and then maybe I could understand it more.

The same was not said, as FB was profitable way before the IPO.
The big question was how much more they could grow.
TWTR is not and was never in the same boat.
