This really reacts to daily user usage metrics. He has been hesitant to enter into fad investing. He thinks it may get picked up by another company and bolted on their social media strategy. The multiple is volatile due to the swings from negative to positive earnings. They are up against a giant, so he would stay away for now.

He doesn't use this or Instagram, but notices that young people use Instagram more than Spapchat, and that's the problem. The IPO was hyped in March 2017, but the price has since tumbled because they don't know how to monetize user base which has stalled.

They mismanaged the offerings they put out last year, but it has since snapped back due to a reaction over Twitter. Many use Snap/Twitter as a pairs trade. Investors sell one to buy the other. So, with Twitter selling off lately, shares of Snap have risen. Buy in the $20s and sell in the $40s.

His son has abandoned Snap and Instagram. He thinks it is going to do better if they stop Facebook (FB-O) to continue stealing their best features. It is tempting to say they are too small to niche and they won’t making it. He wouldn’t buy it, but it is interesting to see.

He owned it, but they disappointed in earnings. He made some money on this (then bought Twitter). So...he recommends Twitter instead. Twitter has 336 million active users after purging a large portion of fake accounts and bots. Some investors were suspicious of this, but he sees this is an opportunity. Twitter has a very long runway--he's very bullish.

It’s a big tech stock with no earnings. He doesn’t know that much about the stock. It takes a long time for companies like this to make money, if they ever do, The investor has to decide whether this particular one is likely to become profitable. There’s a lot of competition. The stock hasn’t done well since it has gone public. He trusts the market.

They're innovative, but Instagram can quickly match their innovationst and they can understand the user better than Snap, because of the data that Facecook (its parent) has.

A stock he has really wanted to buy. It has been really disappointing. Every time it gets close to $16, it falls off. He can't believe it is this cheap. As a passing interest, he would continue to own it and buy it, for no other reason than he likes the app itself.

The earnings report was pretty dismal. This was a $20 billion app. They did it because they could and could monetize it, but since going public, they hit the top. The average daily usage is down quarter over quarter. A great example of how you have to be very, very careful when an IPO comes out, and what the motivation of the people selling it are.

He has made a lot of money on internet stocks, but on this one he has to side with the shorts. 20% of the float is being shorted. Instagram is copying a lot of their features. They don’t have a moat around their business model. It can pop on good news, though.

Based on a very short term chart, and it is not a long enough period to draw any firm conclusions on support, resistance, etc. In the short term, the stock is trading down and looks like it is trying to break that downtrend. On the near term, it looks somewhat positive, but there is not enough data to make any big bold predictions.

He’s been pretty pessimistic on this since the beginning. The problem is, this is up against Facebook (FB-Q) which has monthly active users of 2 billion and daily active users of 1.5 billion. The spending that Facebook can bring to bear is going to drown this company. If they are going to put up a good quarter, it is going to be this one. He would be real careful about heading into the tsunami of lockup shares that are coming next week.

This company has a major problem. Facebook (FB-Q) copied Snaps best attributes, which has stunted their ability to grow its social network. The power of these enterprises is the network effect that they create through users. All Facebook had to do was introduce a similar type of feature with an already very large installed base. The company is challenged, because there are a lot of expectations and it was sold at a very lofty valuation. There is a lot of stock that still has to come out. Traditional TV stations are struggling with how they distribute short clip videos and appeal to a demographic. Buying this in the low single digit numbers might be attractive.

Social media is a core theme in this market. There are some companies that are doing a great job in monetizing the viewership they have. He doesn’t like buying the weakest company within a group. This has traded back to its IPO price. If it is able to hold here, build a little bit of a base and get turned around, he would take a look at it. A great way to participate in the social media is to buy Global’s ETF SOCL, the basket of social media companies. However, if he were going to buy just one name, it would probably be Facebook (FB-Q).
