Dislocations Wreak Havoc On Wall Street

Something doesn’t feel right about losing all of this money. I can’t put my finger on it. Rumors of hedge fund blow ups. The media is crapping on “momentum stocks” when in fact they are growth stocks. I was told a long time ago to buy when there is blood in the streets. When everyone is running one way, go the other. This has to cessate and we must bounce. Even in the worst of markets, you get a bounce. I have one more slither of cash left reserved for averaging down and I have no choice but to save it for Monday.

I’d like to buy now. Then again, why should I since everything might crumble to pieces on Monday?

In all of the years that I’ve been in this business, I’ve NEVER seen the IPO whorehouses, assisted by the vulture capitalist houses, be so blatant in their disregard for the investor. To hell with GRUBHUB and all of these S-1s that are being filed. How the hell can you justify bringing a tech company public in the midst of an epic rout in tech stocks? It’s borderline criminal, at a minimum morally corrupt.

Have a look at how many IPOs are on deck to be priced. It’s amazing.

IPOs

Anyway, keeping with the standards of iBC, all tabbed bloggers will be catering to you this weekend, with ChessnWine doing a special video overview Saturday or Sunday. Additionally, I might allow for free passage to all premium services, After Hours with Option Addict, The PPT and 12631, on Monday and Tuesday. We will get through this, one way or another. We always do.

Right now I am trying to put together a list of hedge funds who are getting smoked. I might post something about that this weekend.

    Mr. Fly:

    You did the picking. Now I do the sticking. I am long KING SPLK YELP and FB now, all positions being established in the last hour. We bounce heap big on Monday and I make all the money, and you recover some of your losses. Let me in your PPT for free, and I will teach you my ways.

    Good weekend to you and your’s.

    Sincerely,

    Rong Xu

    If you have enough money or are adequately hedged this could be one of the greatest opportunities of the year. These companies have sales and from what I’ve been reading the growth is real. Unfortunately, the market won’t determine multiples until these companies post earnings. Good Luck to all involved.

    How the fuck you planning on knowing if a fund is getting “smoked”? Your plan is to look up funds w/ size in your blown up names that must disclose?

    Honestly wondering. Because, as you may or may not know, that doesn’t mean shit, see, real HFs actually hedge their positions, and they don’t disclose that derivative exposure, maybe if you found a long only manager who is not allowed to buy puts on anything but market exposure, and also they also had >5% in FEYE, SPLK, etal, aka 350million IN EACH NAME (plus or minus…) I call bullshit on you having access to that info. Maybe you can explain that this weekend, my buddies at the clearing desk would love to know

    Also could not disagree more with your IPO blah blah , issuance is fucking huge but no morality to that decision chief, called supply and demand. Justify in a tech rout? YEAHHH the executives who spend muchos buckos on sarbox, compliance, and fees go “lets check PPT hybrid to make sure chess thinks good time to public”

    How this for a theory: big IPO issuance is bearish bc these no net income ipos are lumped in the same pile as long-duration assets since no CF now = no yield now, and now that far end of the curve is coming up who wants to dump money in a spec biotech/tech when the cost of capital to sit on it just blew the expected yield out of the fucking water? That makes sense, blaming boogey men makes it sound idiotic

        Hey I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt — I did not vet each name — maybe they all do.

        But something in my experience just by looking at low PPS and <20mil issuance tells me that

        ADAMAS Pharma
        ALDEYRA Therapeutics
        CERULEAN Pharma
        ——–Need I even speculate on these cash burning machines?
        Five9

        Lombard Medical
        Opower

        Philbro Animal Health
        SCYNEXIS
        ——-Anything bio related practically assured doesn't make $
        Stalwart Tankers (GOTTA LOVE THIS NAME)
        SYSOREX Holdings
        and
        ZOES KITCHEN

        Are not exactly setting up for cheap risk.

        I looked at a couple S-1s, these cos are mostly pieces of shit

            You are aware there are different sections for operations, investments, and financing, and that purpose of separating those activities is to show

            Is cash flow from financing activities not a section on the statement? You mentioned these companies have 0 cash flows. I assume 0 means none to you. Is issuing shares not a financing activity? Do you even understand accounting because I do. Dumbass.

        I assume not. I waste not one moment on fanciful diversions such as film — for the ticks on the 1 minute are far more interesting. Had you been watching, you’d notice that the last 4 hours we bottomed on many important names. Look at AMZN.

        I am stedfast in my conviction that I will be able to sell my YELP and SPLK above 70 and my FB above 60 by Wednesday.

    Regarding opening your premium services on Monday to all:

    I would vote against that as it could be the most important trading days in a while, and those of us that are paying members (myself 12631) might not want the risk of the extra traffic and lose touch with the traders and potential riffraff that might show up and clog the arteries of the services. I’d hate to lose touch at such a meaningful time.

    We’re 25 points off the s&p high. We closed the s&p week five points lower than we started. The NASDAQ a little over 60. This is not an epic rout. Not blood in the streets.

        When any person with a half a brain says cash flow +, they mean from continuing ops, aka, the fucking business in question.

        What I love about this message board is hysterical nonsense shit like this:

        You suggest that a company that does nothing but issue shares is MAKING money? And question my grasp of accounting?

          I thought words have meaning pal?

          Stop making an ass of yourself and look up the words “cash” and “flow” in a dictionary.

          We were not speaking about “cash flow from operations”, we were speaking about “cash flow.” You said new IPO’s have 0 CF now (which is the stupidest fucking thing I ever heard). Cash flow can come from investing, financing or operations. Now when a company issues shares they are effectively selling shares of their company in return for cash so they can finance operations (i.e. new IPO’s, secondary’s, shit like that), believe me they’re not doing it for blow jobs and cupcakes. So when a company goes public and comes into a pile of millions or billions of cash, what the fuck is that? Exactly. Now realize that cash flow is not the same as earnings. We know these are growth (please look up growth in the dictionary too) companies, hence they are burning cash in order to expand their business and operations.

          Here is a link to a cash flow statement and you can see financing is apart of the cash flow statement.

            I think you should take your own advice on this one, tuck away with a hot cocoa, maybe put down the Webster’s and realize that accounting terminology is specific, that you have confused a bunch of words and concepts, and just stop.

            If you really think this has been about whether or not Cash Flow from Financing is in the SCFS, or if proceeds from the sale show up in the statement, VS. your ridiculous comment that “issuing stock = making money,” then there is nothing else to say.

            For what you said to be true, selling stock would show up under CFfromOPs, which you concede even with your cursory knowledge that it doesn’t.

            Really it’s embarrassing.

            I never said “issuing stock = making money,”, don’t put words in my mouth when you can copy and paste.

            I said “They just made $23,000,000 cash. ” implying an inflow of cash via new IPO and you went on a hiatus.

            Let’s just agree to disagree here. Cheers.

            HAHA “made” in accounting means “from continuing operations” not from financing activities

            But I am sure you were just joking.

            Made/raised same difference.

            —–

            That is how I gathered that you were asserting raising money = making money, after all according to you they are the “same difference”. So really I was using a direct quote, not putting words in your mouth.

            They are not the same. That I cannot agree to disagree about.

            Cheers, have a good weekend

    This has been an enjoyable Friday…the antics in iBankCoin have been top-notch, and while losing money is never fun, seeing iBC return to form is almost worth it.

    Truth be told, the last year has been slow around here. A slow, grinding, one-directional market makes for boring reading on the whole.

    Blood, Sweat, Tears, Admonitions, Slander, Threats, and Violence. Thats what the people want, and a tiny little bit of volatility is all that was needed for a return to form.

    See you all Sunday night.

      I’m still on the fence. love the restaurant. would normally seem like a good odds ticker to pop (a la Noodles, Potbelly) but past couple of weeks action leaves me hesitant. Good bit of investor interest though. I think I’m going to cut the number of shares in my conditional offer by a third.

    Sure…just when they have you convinced it is a full-blown sell-off, the PPT appears and stiffs all the shorts.

    The doom and gloom plays are the hardest ones of all.

    We shall see, spring into summer will deliver skewed performance.

    The market should have never played into the unemployment numbers (which, at this point, are completely meaningless)

    As for the never-ending Tech IPO’s, hey everyone wants a chance at the next VERT….but a 2% drop on the Naz, just might be the sign that the party is over.

        I agree but here’s the difference — Fly is entertaining, shows up each day, but also posts a lot of bullshit, imv. Since he is so quick to ban anyone who doesn’t kowtow to the party line, how can one build credibility here when any opposing view is silenced? I mean, would it be that bad if one parried with a certain fact or belief? Apparently so.

        If someone is, hypothetically, so sensitive as to be unable to tolerate any opposition, or even present a counterfactual, then that person is weak. Hypothetically, only of course since apparently Fly can punch a man’s mustache clean off.

        While I agree with your sentiment, I disagree that post count means anything.

        People should look at the content and character of the message, not the surface (and non material) aspect of whether or not the poster is a regular or not.

        Also, fly is anonymous and is as only as accountable as he allows himself to be. He is essentially his own auditor, so no, that is not very accountable. I’m not calling his accountability into question, just saying that I disagree that the current system lends itself to a lot of credibility.

        This is the exact type of comment that would typically be deleted and banned. When if you read it, there’s no insult, no aggression, just an expression of a difference of view.

    So when i thought i was doubling down on Yelp today at 69, i actually somehow entered a double short position. Ridiculous, ended up banking some coin on that trade.

    But i lost about 15x that on an ES trade at the same time, one that just never properly recovered.

    But still, i feel good about the Yelp error in my favor.

    Internet Troll is a psychological disorder. The pattern of behavior is incredibly similar across cases. As if they are clones.

    I hate talking shit before a game is over but it’s nice seeing the Pirates light up the Cards tonight.

    Did St. Louis really get rid of David Freese?

    That’s similar to when Max Talbot left the Penguins. Game 7, 2009 Stanley Cup Finals is probably my favorite sports memory ever. Part of me died when I saw him in a Flyers uniform.

    All of these stocks are going to bounce. They always do.

      I dunno, i remember in 2008 there was a good stretch where there was no adequate bounce.

      I mean sure, everything bounces, but every once in a while they don’t bounce enough, even over a long period of time.

        Yeah, but it didn’t come from all-time highs and while other stocks are still doing just fine (have you seen AKS?).

        No doubt, this is much different than anything we have seen in a while (especially the disconnect between markets and individual stocks, which is very alarming), but shit was much ‘gloomier’ as recently as late Sept 2011, if I recall correctly. I believe The Fly dubbed it a “Brazen Bull” Market at the time.

        The weekly charts of pretty much all of these stocks are in the beginning stages of what I think will be tradable bottoms.

        Now, that may take a couple of months, but I have time.

    I have to admit that I have a lot of balls showing up here again after being banned by Le Fly almost a year ago!
    Since banishment I have faithfully been coming back to this site on a daily basis.. The Fly is so goddamn entertaining that I could not help myself but to go undercover and try fucking around with him for fun. I didn’t realize that he was able to zero in on me and ban me and at the same time embarrass the fuck out of me. I remember on one of my, what I thought was an anonymous comments, I was poking fun at how the Fly was losing money and didn’t have a clue about what the fuck he was doing! He responded with and I still cherish the humour in his response with …….Imagine you were in a stupid room with decorative glass windows. You know, the ones that were crowd favorites of the American Psycho crowd back in the 80?s. Now imagine yourself reading my blog, commenting on “The Fly” selling too early. Bear with me, for I am about explain what is in store for you.
    You left some comments like “WTF n00b, sold early, hahahahaha,” then took a few sips from your faggotty glass of wine. Then you heard a noise, sounds of laser beams and shit. So, you put your small glass of chardonnay down to take a peak. You walked into the living quarters; but found nothing. So you head back to your desk to revile Le Fly a little bit more. You were having a grand old time on the internets.
    Then, suddenly, a fucking spaceship appeared out of nowhere, outside of your bullshit decorative windows. Immediately, a fucking robot arm broke through the fancy glass and punched your face in, shattering the glass of chardonnay all over your moustache.
    I WILL FUCKING KILL YOU. That’s like a direct threat to your personal safety. You might get away with talking shit on other sites. iBankcoin, specifically my blog, IS NOT OTHER SITES. I have serious testosterone issues. I am alpha to your omega.
    Here, let me explain this shit to you in psychopath caps and quit fucking around!
    I love you Fly, always have!
    Best regards,
    JTU

    I did not get out unharmed either. I took a three day hit of over 100K. I by no means did any better then the other guy. With all that’s going on and to see very little reaction in the market until now is amazing. I’ve seen the market drop 1000 points in a day before. I expect to see it again one day. God Bless.

    Fly, where do you get the funds to repeatedly “average down”?

    In theory, with unlimited funds one should never lose. Buy $1 million
    of a stock at 100, another million at 50, another million at 20, another million
    at 10, and another million at 2 – you have $5 million invested and you own
    680,000 shares worth $1.36 million. If the stock goes back to 8 you have
    a profit.

    But the real world doesn’t work that way. You run out of money or get
    margin calls and get wiped out.

    On March 24 you said you were “all in” (FEYE, SPLK, YELP etc.)
    Yet (somehow) on March 26 you “averaged down” again. On March 31
    you said you were “just about fully invested”. Now on April 3 you
    “averaged down” again, and are planning yet MORE ”averaging down”
    next week.

    Mr. Fly, this doesn’t sound at all feasable. Where is the “averaging down”
    money coming from?

      averaging down doesn’t necessarily equate to doubling down. I bought 5000 shares of EGRX on Friday at around 12.25 and sold 5000 shares at the end of the day at just under 13, thus averaging down a decent bit of my total holdings without needing to utilize “averaging down money” beyond the business day. not really rocket science.

          well perhaps PSA, as I am a layman, you can explain ‘averaging down’ to me. I hold a decent bit of EGRX and was able to bring the average price down on my total shares by my additional purchase and sale on Friday. Is it not the process of buying additional shares in a stock at lower prices than you originally purchased? Does averaging down require not selling any of one’s higher priced holdings. Thank you in advance for dummying it down for me.

      I read an interesting valuation analysis that said there is somewhere between 15% – 50% more downside in these particular names (FEYE, SPLK, etc). Obviously no one knows anything, but if this is just a valuation correction, which is what i suspect, then there could be a good bit more decline before we hit bottom.
