Twitter stock falls 7 percent on second day of trading

Yesterday may have been a boon for Twitter (s twtr), opening on the NYSE with a stock price of $45.10 (well above its IPO price of $26) and a cool $1.8 billion in cash from the transaction.

Blame it on the lack of profits, which has led analysts to downgrade the stock.
