The Internet is Dead

As you know by now, all the important people, like Dennis Kneale, sold out of all their internet stocks, for low-grade bank plays.

Aside from that, I’m not sure what the fuck is going on, but [[BIDU]], [[YHOO]], [[GOOG]], [[AMZN]], [[EBAY]], [[CTRP]], [[NILE]], [[OMTR]], [[VCLK]], [[OSTK]] and [[MNST]] are getting their fucking heads blown off.

Using that logic, one could make a strong argument that [[PCLN]] needs to get its head shot off too. After all, that stock is like 75 points over valued.

“The Fly” spits on PCLN from 100 yards.

Today, after the bell, the cow fuckers from YHOO will post their quarterly disappointment. I have personal experience dealing with YHOO; and they suck.

What’s odd to me is the current bullish sentiment in the market has decoupled itself from the net plays. Perhaps advertising rates are dropping off a cliff, as the writers strike continues and the mortgage market implodes?

Nevertheless, the sector is telling us something.

Are you listening, fuckface?

    But GOOG is freaking on it. They run a great company, innovate like mad, etc. GOOG is the best of the bunch, and the PE is not crazy. I think YHOO could be halved tomorrow. OK, maybe 2/3ed.

    as a striking writer… i am not allowed to respond. but fuck, this is the internet so i can keep my anonymity.

    however, fly… you are correct. ad rates are dropping fast. look for media outlets to get nailed in the upcoming quarters. the only positive is that it’s an election year… so they’ll make some of it up in campaign ad sales.

    AMZN is the greatest short play ever. Just wait till Old man Miller unloads. Look at all the stocks that have had crazy run ups the last 12 months – SPWR CROX BIDU FSLR AAPL RIMM STP VMW. Look how they’ve been beaten up as of late. On average these stocks are off over 40%. AMZN is only off around 25% with a forward PE of 44. Short it.

    i 2nd what phatfriday says re media stocks. i’m an analyst at a fund and cover media. it will mostly be local tv that benefits from the political year, the rest will get rocked this yr, however, most media plays have already been pounded.

    If advertising is really down GOOG may miss and get the homo hammer beat down.

    fyi: advertisers are pulling out of many of their big buys on striking shows. it’s a disaster for the big networks. they are giving ad money back. it’ll really start to show up in the second quarter earnings.

    Having sold products to Amazon.com they were stellar to deal with…valuation is arbitrary at the best of times…I think they are going the right direction, but in this market it doesn’t matter as much.

    Children, let me allow you a secret of your demigod…

    Whenever the hunt’s not going well, or my favorite nymph is out sporting with the fauns, I teleport over to Yahoo! Finance and peruse the headlines.

    Invariably, they bring me cheer, like this one did:

    Wall Street was mostly higher Tuesday as the Federal Reserve opened a two-day meeting expected to bring another interest rate cut to revitalize the U.S. economy.

    Oh children! The hubris!

    I strapped on my war gear for tomorrow.

    30% short (homebuilders, retail, tech)
    24% long (gold, gold miners)

    I’m ready for you Ben. Either way, you’re fucked. I mean, we’re fucked.

    Note. If you forced me to praise Fly, then I would bet that Ben does not cut current rates.

    Watch the tape on the close. Near term double top breakout on the Dow if we close above 12,481. It will be a close…puusshh!

    Fist fight between bulls and bears right to the close!

    UPDATE: Wow. Closed right at 12,480!

    No dice, my canine.

    The lad asking for his own death at the hand of another makes wise choices.

    If my Bearded and truculent servant is foolish enough to cut rates (at my bidding), then his lustrous metal purchases will be feted with fine grappas and his table adorned by choice game birds and sweet meats.

    If on the other hand, my bearded servant Ben holds rates fast (again, at my bidding), then his selling of shares aforethought will fatten his purse like a winter calf.
