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.
The concerns then on FBs' inability to grow came out of underestimating the power of social media + ads,
FB delivered,
Twitter just hasn't delivered YET,

They may not be in the same boat, but they swim in the same waters. ( btw...)

if Twitter can monetize their ad space. They will bring in tremendous cash.  However, it seems like it will need to overhaul their leadership before that will happen.

But thats my point. The whole investment hinges on a big IF

Yup. Originally bought at 660. Doubled down at 540. Up almost 40%. And that's not counting the dividend

CSX, NSC or UNP should continue their roll now that keystone is pretty much done.

otherwise looking at SWKS or NXPI.

You can't lose money by taking a profit.

Minus any tax ramifications.

No one in this thread cared about AAPL when it was a steal...
