Twitter Inc's shares fell almost 25 percent on Thursday, wiping out about $9.8 billion in market value, after the company reported a sharp slowdown in user growth.
The stock, which debuted at $26 in November, hit a low of $50 in early trading. The shares hit a peak of $74.73 in late December as investors bet that the social media platform could become as ubiquitous as Facebook.
Analysts, unlike investors, were divided on the company's outlook a day after it reported fourth-quarter results.
Twitter, according to broker assessments, is either the overvalued owner of a niche product whose potential is fading or an undervalued phenomenon that is set to give Facebook a run for its money in mobile.
"We remain firmly in the latter camp..." said Deutsche Bank, one of one at least six brokerages that raised target prices or ratings on Twitter's stock.Investors dump Twitter stock as results divide Wall Street [reuters.com]
Blows my mind when I see a company with such revenues posting a LOSS and all they do is shove a bunch of 140 character messages around the planet.
Lets try another explanation: Twitter made a small profit, but it was turned into a large loss after deducting the value of shares and/or options issued as remuneration
