    Twitter Launches Clickable Stock Symbols, StockTwits’ Howard Lindzon Says “Hey, We Already Do That!”

    Tonight, Twitter quietly rolled out another feature — one that may seem simple and straightforward at first glance but could actually have big implications. The company said via its very own Twitter account that users can now click on stock (or “ticker”) symbols in any tweet to view search results for those stocks and companies. To make this possible, Twitter is… Read More

  • It’s Just A Flesh Wound: Apple Stocks Down For Fifth Consecutive Day

    It’s Just A Flesh Wound: Apple Stocks Down For Fifth Consecutive Day

    Apple stock fell 4.1% on Monday, continuing a five day skid and a trend that has drained $50 billion in market capital from the company and dropped share price from a high of $643 on April 10 to its current price of $580. Apple has been flying high lately, weathering dual storms of Jobs-Cook succession and, most recently, Mike Daisey’s Foxconn fabrications. The stock is up in early… Read More

    StockTwits Gets More Interactive With Conversations

    StockTwits is unveiling a new feature called Conversations, which should make it easier to not just track the online discussion about a stock, but to join in, too. Co-founder and CEO Howard Lindzon says that StockTwits has “always been about context,” trying to show users all the Twitter discussion about a certain stock ticker symbol in one place. However, that discussion can… Read More

  • Has Nintendo ridden the success of the Wii, DS as far as possible?

    Has Nintendo finally exhausted all the momentum out of the Wii and DS? DeutcheBank seems to think so, which earlier today downgraded its rating of the Japanese super-happy-fun company to “sell.” The logic is pretty simple: odds are this is as good as it gets for Nintendo, so investors would do well to cash out now, and collect whatever profit it is they’ve accrued over the… Read More

  • SEC said to be looking into Apple-Steve Jobs health situation

    It looks like the Security and Exchanges Commission is looking into Apple’s handling of the whole Steve Jobs health situation. If it’s found that Apple deliberately mislead its investors over the status of Jobs’ health then Apple could well be in a spot of trouble. Well, so says Bloomberg, whose Web site is straight out of 1996. Read More

  • SEC to investigate false Steve Jobs heart attack claim

    Whoever made that false Steve-Jobs-had-a-heart-attack claim is going to be in a lot of trouble now that the SEC is getting involved. The independent agency is looking to see if the false report was done maliciously. That is to say, it’s trying to figure out whether or not the person who posted the claim in order to profit from the resulting drop in stock price. (Apple’s stock went… Read More

  • Apple stock still worth buying, says Citi and Goldman Sachs

    Yes, we’ll soon all be at each other’s throats fighting over cans of soup, but Apple? It’s fine, despite that drop earlier in the week. That’s what Citi and Goldman Sachs say, at least. Those two haven’t failed yet, so we’d do well to hang on their every word. Both Citi and Goldman Sachs kept a “buy” rating on Apple stock, despite the fact that… Read More

  • Tech stocks are on the fast train down

    The financial crisis is hitting the technology sector hard. Apple (AAPL) is down 18 percent over the last 16 months and Google slipped below $400 a share for the first time in two years. Best Buy (BBY) hit its lowest mark of $35.64 since 2005 and Circuit City (CC) just hit .77 cents a share. Want more? RIM (RIM) is tumbling, Nokia (ADR) is down to 18.43 a share verse 38 at the beginning of… Read More

  • Yes! I was right about betting on AMD and NVIDIA stock


    Oh ye of little faith! Last month I posted about how I thought AMD and NVIDIA stocks were undervalued but the companies themselves were thriving. Buy, buy, buy, I said — to general disapproval. It’s not customary of course to give stock tips on CrunchGear, and to be honest I wouldn’t trust myself to invest a roll of quarters, but it looks like my amateur day-trading… Read More
