Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) $120 billion in market value has been wiped away

Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) stock was pummeled last week, falling about 19% after the company reported its second-quarter results. Lower-than-expected revenue and management’s forecast for a rapid deceleration in its year-over-year top-line growth for the remainder of the year sent shares sharply downward.

That’s unprecedented, and all caused by a slower-than-anticipated rate of growth. Twitter’s $6 bn drop? It posted its first-ever decline in user numbers following a purge of upwards of seventy million fraudulent accounts.

While it’s been a long time coming, in both cases it’s the direct end result of trying to have it both ways: serving shareholders and users alike. You can’t walk that tightrope forever.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the downside.

The projected upper bound is: 191.46.

The projected lower bound is: 153.29.
