  2. Weekly Market Timing indicator remains strong
  3. Daily Market Timing continues building strength
  4. Suggested market posture for next weeks trading & 100 best stocks

1) Facebook stock analysis – what to do now?

Facebook stock had a tough day on Friday.

View a video update and the following suggestions on what to do about Facebook.

On Thursday Facebook announced that they would create “more meaningful interactions” on their platform by prioritizing content from family and friends posts over new feeds.

There was a huge discussion about the effect of this change on earnings.  Some argued that subscriber interaction would increase in turn leading to more ad revenue.  Others argued that the opposite would happen.

The bottom line is that even with the approximately 4% drop in Facebooks stock price the stock is still in a long term uptrend.

Facebook has been in my portfolio for 500 today’s tomorrow.  That position is up 41.85% over that time.  It certainly has not been a barn burner but the question is what to do now?
