I’ve had it with these cute technology companies. The energy conservers over at GOOG just shit the shower, with an impromptu earnings catastrophe, which inadvertently was released without top hat. For the love of bankrupt social media venture capitalists, these companies need to be reigned the fuck in. All of these internet companies are run by children. They’re small fools who play with billions of dollars, generally fucking up their investors along the way.
Granted, GOOG has been a long term winner, despite missing EPS by $1.62 with a “Pearl Harbor” style mid-day attack. But how many other asshat corporations have ruined people? Let’s run down the list: ZNGA, GRPN, FB, LOCK, JIVE, OPEN, BCOV, P, NFLX, AWAY, SFLY, ANGI. I could go on.
The new wave of technology is UN-INVESTABLE. Wait until the companies fire their founders and allow adults to manage them.
In case you were wondering, yes, GOOG is receiving an emergency Asshat of the Quarter award. Congrats.

Just saw that, glad I wasn’t long, that is absolutely terrible. Traders waiting until end of day to close out trade before earnings got crushed.
Salagadoola mechicka boola bibbidi-bobbidi-boo
PENDING ASSHAT QUOTE. Hey dude why did you hit send?
Google just killed me today motherfuckers.
You got googled!
Maybe you should google how to “un google” your portfolio?
“But how many other asshat corporations have ruined people. Let’s run down the list: ZNGA, GRPN, FB, LOCK, JIVE, OPEN, BCOV, P, NFLX, AWAY, SFLY, ANGI. I could go on.” Unless I am sadly mistaken the Supreme Fly made several profitable trades in some of the aforementioned asshats, qualifying him for the legendary ‘chefs’ golden toque’ award.
can we the people of Le Fly rally a short attack on LNKD? I fucking hate that stock (not the company)
Not holding google, but they basically killed the whole market. Ugh.
GOOG just cooled the Markets!
are you going to hold on to VHC and MCP. Looks like market is reversing.
Change Asshat Award to RR Donnelly.
GOOG needs to buy a bank so that they can use their loan loss provisions to hit their numbers!!
No doubt about it!
$RRD will feel the pain more than $GOOG
Added MCP on this dip. ANR also realized it has nothing to do with Google.
EPIC buying opportunity. I am in with more shares of GOOG as soon trading resumes.
They also released a $249 Chromebook today. Google fucking owns.
For those continuing with self-flagellation over OSG, this article should be interesting, if not revealing:
And it isn’t even 10/19.
Always a bit nervous this time of year thanks to 10/19/87.
I got married on 10/18/87. The next day was a message to me from the stock gods.
umm…that was before 9:30 AM Eastern time, not Pacific time.
LNKD to zero!
theres absolutely no fear in this market whatsoever
we are so overdue for a 10% flash crash, its not even fuckin funny anymore
and i never want to hear a bull cry ever again..ever
Google has cost me a fortune today.
Better call Saul Goodman
Whew! I thought you were going to give the asshat to the bankers that brought them public.
Fat fingers galore… Google fat fingered the earnings released, the market gets fat fingered, the budget will get fat fingered…
In fact, the only B not getting fat fingered is that B Candy Crowley
There was an “itch” after the B but Candy ate it along with the whole candy factory.
She always looked like Jabba The Hut to me.
Does trading based on leaked earnings information everyone has access to publicly before official earnings constitute insider trading? Doubt it, but just saying.
” everyone has access to publicly ”
means it is not insider info – dumbass
obviously, but there were several who got that information before everyone else because it wasn’t given by official usual channels at the same time.
Otherwise what’s to prevent the guy making a “mistake” and selling it the very second after that information is released?
Just prior to the moment the purchase or sale is made, leak information when it’s not supposed to be leaked. “plausible deniability”. “oops, I shouldn’t have done that, but information is released now, so I might as well act on it”
“Oops, I (the CEO) intentionally/accidentally bankrupted my company and just happened to leak that information early and subsequently buy as many puts as I could get my hands on while the news was available but before the news was widely distributed. Technically the information wasn’t “inside” information as others had access to it, but I was still able to take advantage of the temporary inefficiency and make a boatload before the market reacted”
The major financials which were holding this tap up with tape and glue have now gone negative and the dollar is up v euro.
Hang on folks.
The tradebots are warming up.
If anyone thinks the was an “accident” they are delusional.
They got me. The finally got me to go all in after 6 weeks and here comes the drama. Fuck 2012.
You were so close man. I cringed a bit the other day when you said you were close to break even for the year. Jinxed yourself. Sorry bud.
I would hang tough for awhile.
Piper Jaffray and Citi are keeping their buy and outperform.
As usually happens there will be a quick plunge (may have already happened) with late comers panicking and then a sharp turn up.
That may be the time to get out.
caddy i’m goign to hang tough through next week…a source i trust says we are going to challenge the highs next week.
thanks wilmer, my damage was limited today…..hopefully next week goes better.
Motherfuckers made my QQQ short way to easy today. Loading up on LF and DIS today also.
Fucking Googlers. Can somebody explain to me how GOOG shitting the shower can crash a f’n coal company? Stopped me out of ANR today, about an hour after I bought it.
