Does Wall Road Like What It’s Listening to From Twitter (Once more)?
This has been fairly a number of previous couple of weeks for Twitter, with a brand new CEO, a renewed double-down promise to builders, like to its staff (after some “robust love” by means of layoffs), Ballmer being in for four%…and extra.
The road agrees, with Twitter inventory leaping up 5% as we speak:
Twitter, which is a notoriously risky inventory, for quite a lot of causes (together with lack of considerable progress) may be hitting its “new norm” on the $30 degree, properly above what it was priced at when it when it went public.
That is even after the downgrade that rocked them this week. It’s even edging again in the direction of a purchase.
As for me: I might somewhat have a smaller a part of one thing huge than a much bigger a part of one thing small. I am assured we will make Twitter huge! ✌️

Moments shipped, Polls shipped and there’s a way (and in some instances, “hope”) of a brand new new new new new new Twitter…and its nicely-thought-out announcement cadence is certainly placing it on that path.
The questions that I’ve although are:
- How are Moments producing? Are they changing lookie-lavatory’s into lively customers?
- Are Twitter recruiters having higher luck attracting recent new expertise?
- Will there be extra layoffs to additional streamline?
- What’s the subsequent “massive” product transfer…messages? Needs to be, quickly.
- Can Dorsey actually swing the 2 gigs, with Sq. going public?
These are greater than truthful questions, and far more than most corporations have being flung at them proper now. However the easy proven fact that the inventory seems to be prefer it does at the moment, the corporate is in a far more secure place than it was when Costolo stepped down. Its subsequent quarter earnings are subsequent week (10/27) and we’ll in all probability hear just a little little bit of “give us a while” on progress and “we’re nonetheless killing it” on income, so Dorsey has time to maintain issues happening the up swing.
Smoke and mirrors or actual change? We’ll quickly discover out.
