Are only Twits Selling Twitter !?

It does not happen only in India !…such Price Crash in one trading day in a big cap scrip only because lock in period got over !

Twitter twittered bad yesterday on NYSE after selling pressure came in right from the opening on the six month post IPO lock in period getting over…It dragged all Social Media & Internet  Shares with it

The IPO was at US $ 26…the listed Price has always been higher than this and yesterday it touched a Low of US $ 31.72 before closing marginally higher at US $ 31.85…. will it drop below IPO Price !?

Nearly 135 Million shares were traded yesterday,over 10 times the daily average of just over 13 million shares….the Low of US $ 31.72 was recorded yesterday….the High since listing on November 7,2013 has been US $ 74.73

Twitter continues to make a Loss yet quotes at just under 8 Book…perhaps another reason for the rush to sell by Employees on the first day they could…they missed the opportunity to sell on highs of over US $ 70 as their shares were locked in…they settled for quotes yesterday in the US $ 30′ s….Media Reports that the big Shareholders have not offloaded…so is Twitter a buying Opportunity on this Selling Pressure ! ?  …remember how Facebook too had dropped dramatically to US $ 20 levels on selling pressure…even on listing day it fell below IPO Price…It’s since galloped away to US $ 58 + !
