Decaderea Twitter-ului!


Decaderea Twitter-ului

Analistii sunt foarte speriati deoarece stocul Twitter-ului s-a micsorat foarte mult de-a lungul ultimelor 2 saptamani. Distribuirile de pe Twitter au scazut cu 27% luna aceasta. Au scazut cu 6% vinerea trecuta cand Salesforce.com a declarat ca nu doreste sa cumpere Twitter-ul.

Investitorii Twitter-ului au suferit foarte mult iar aceasta decadere a valorii stocurilor Twiter-ului le-au ingreunat viata angajatilor. Ei au avut de suferit deoarece Twitter isi plateste angajatii cu cat stoc au ei in luna aceea. De fapt, beneficiile stocurilor pentru angajati ajung la 18% din tot profitul Twitter-ului, sau mai bine spus 682,5 milioane de dolari. Acest venit a ajuns in cartea recordurilor pentru o firma atat de mare din Silicon Valley.

Twitter-ul a declarat ca valoarea sa a scazut cu 35% in doar cateva luni. Din cauza acestei decaderi moralul angajatilor a scazut si el. Conform companiei Glassdoor.com, doar 54% din angajatii de la Twitter cred ca compania va mai avea un viitor stralucit.

Salesforce este cea mai recenta companie care a refuzat sa cumpere compania Twitter. Companii imense precum Alphabet (Google), Disney si Apple deja au declarat clar si raspicat ca nu vor sa aiba nimic de-a face cu compania Twitter, lucru care a afectat foarte mult compania.

Patronul companiei Salesforce Marc Benioff a spus ca nu mai doreste ca sa investeasca in Twitter si sa tina o licitatie deoarece se teme ca compania a fost preluata de troli si ca este prea mult abuz verbal pe Twitter.

Analistul de stocuri de top Jim Cramer de la CNBC a declarat ca „acum vedem exact ca licitantii se uita la oamenii cu cei mai multi urmaritori pe Twitter si tot ce vad este ura.”

„Twitter-ul spune ca filtreaza ura. Adica tot ce fac este sa ascunda foarte putina ura, iar majoritatea este in vazul lumii, si cu totii stim ca aceasta ura reduce valoarea companiei,” a mai adaugat Jim.

Brian Wieser, un analist al Grupului de Cercetare Pivotal, care este un sustinator al Twitter-ului a spus ca firma inca valoreaza foarte multi bani si ca inca este optimistic atunci cand vine vorba de viitorul companiei Twitter. El a declarat ca „daca ei se incred in companie atunci ei trebuie sa creada ca stocul este ieftin, in acest caz ei stiu ca urmatoarea emitere va furniza o valoare mult mai mare,”.

Actorul si investotorul in tehnologii Ashton Kutcher este un alt exemplu de om care se teme sa investeasca in Twitter. Kutcher a spus ca el dorea ca saincesteasca in Twitter in trecut, insa acum nu se mai increde in potentialul companiei:  „doream atat de mult sa investesc in trecut, insa nu am avut oportunitatea sa o fac.”

„Eu cred platforma s-a transformat dintr-o platforma de socializare unul-la-unu, unul-la-multi, unul-la-putini intr-o platforma sociala in care oamenii incearca din greu sa-si vanda si sponsorizeze produsul cat maimult,” a declarat Kutcher.

Kutcher este un investitor de top in companiile precum Skype, Square si Foursquare. El a declarat ca „Twitter are nevoie sa creasca numarul de conversatii intre utilizatori si sa scape de toti botii care incearca sa vanda produsele altora; daca fac asta atunci eu sunt sigur ca mult mai multe companii ar fi interesate.”

In prezent, pretul actiunilor companiei Twitter a ajuns la 16,73 dolari iar pretul sau pe piata a ajuns la doar 11,23 miliarde.

Twitter in Trouble?

Analysts are alarmed at the sudden fall of Twitter’s stock over the past 2 weeks. Twitter’s shares have plunged by 27 percent this month. They plunged by 6 percent last Friday when Salesforce.com ruled out acquiring Twitter.

Twitter investors have been hurting pretty deeply and the fall in the value of Twitter’s stock is bad news for its employees. That’s because Twitter relies on stock-based compensation as a way to pay employees. In fact, stock benefits for employees comprises of 18% of Twitter’s revenue or $682.5 million, which is a record for such a large company in the Silicon Valley.

 As of today, Twitter has been trading at 35% below its IPO price. This has deeply affected employee morale at Twitter. According to the company review site Glassdoor.com, only 54% of Twitter’s employees have a positive view of the company’s business future.

Salesforce is just the latest company to say “no” to acquiring Twitter. Major companies such as Alphabet (Google), Disney and Apple have already rejected any idea of taking over Twitter, which they see as a deeply troubled business.]

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff said he ruled out a bid for Twitter because of his concern that the social platform was completely taken over by trolls and there was too much online abuse on Twitter.

Top stock analyst Jim Cramer of CNBC said, "Whats happened is, a lot of the bidders are looking at people with lots of followers and seeing the hatred."

"Twitter says listen, we have a filter. I mean the filter filters out a very small amount of the haters, and I know that the haters reduce the value of the company," he added.

Brian Wieser, an analyst at Pivotal Research Group, who is a major supporter of Twitter said he still had a "buy" rating on the stock and was still optimistic about Twitter’s future, provided it was taken over by a major corporation.  "If they believe in the company, they have to believe the stock is cheap, in which case they know the next issuance will provide value," Wieser said.

Actor and major tech investor Ashton Kutcher is another of those who has reservations about investing in Twitter. Kutcher said he wanted to invest in Twitter’s earlier days, but not now: "I most definitely wanted to invest, I just didn have an opportunity to do so."  

"I think whats happened over time is the platform went from being a one-to-one, one-to-many, one-to-few communication platform and sort of turned into more of a media platform that was like a headline dictator or just a place where people are sort of pushing whatever product they e trying to sell," Kutcher said.

Kutcher is a top investor in companies such as Skype, Square and Foursquare. He said, "Twitter needs to release some numbers on their user engagement and their churn and get some ground stability relative to what their product is; and I think that those companies would be a lot more interested."  

As of today, the Twitter share price is $16.73 and its market capitalization just $11.23 billion.
