With Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) becoming one of the most popular social media sites in the world, many are wondering if its stock is going to follow the suit. No matter where you look – television, print ads, and of course, online – you come across Twitter handles, hashtags, and much more.
For investors, it is important to keep a watchful eye on every move that Twitter makes. Is its user base growing? What types of acquisitions make the most sense? These are the types of questions that will come up time and time again.
Of course, no question is bigger than this one: is Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) a good stock to buy? Some people say yes, and some people say no. What is certain at this point is that its stock is still in its infancy, meaning that there is plenty of room to go up (or down) in the near future.
For a better idea of what is going on at the present time, we don’t have to look any further than a recent CNBC video with Julia Boorstin. Here is what she had to say:
“With growing concerns about Twitter’s valuation, shares were down more than nine percent earlier today (January 27, 2014), although they have rebounded a bit. Investors are profit taking ahead of the company’s first earnings report as a public company that is coming up on February 5. And then the expiration of its first lock up period that is coming after that. Also in the mix is a couple of analyst reports.”
Speaking of analyst reports, Boorstin went on to discuss CSLA’s questioning of Twitter’s ad measurement and distribution ability.
Even though Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) may have taken it on the chin as of late, when you look at its share price since the November IPO you have to like what you see: it is up over 200 percent. Does this mean that things are going to trend in this direction as 2014 wears on? There is no guarantee. Furthermore, there are definite concerns, such as those that have been raised by CSLA.
Where do you stand on Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR)? Earlier this month, Cantor Fitzgerald cut their rating from “hold” to “sell” due in large part to excessive valuations. Do you believe this was a good decision?
Things have been going well for Twitter thus far, despite a recent downturn. If you think the trend is going to continue, now would be the time to buy Twitter stock.
