More shocking is the fact that you were probably a silly little snitch through school and still probably are! Why not welcome all?
I am shocked how many CERN employees are on this Message Board - I thought that was Taboo. Why that Tongo dude even has that silly high school name on his car in the parking lot every day at CERN. How stupid is that to openly comment on the company that employs you!
I CONCUR!!!! I have owned CERNER since 2003. I bought at $17. I like the fact that they bought the SIEMEN's division. MANAGEMENT is strong. Although, I really like this stock and will continue to own it, CERNER has been sort of flat since July 2013 split. I wish it would run like it did before the SPLIT. SOLID COMPANY.
If you think Cerner is just an EMR player, then you shouldn't own this stock, or you should short the ever lovin' shyt out of it. Time to step into the new Millennium, pun definitely intended!
I continued to armchair quarterback Fuzzymathematician's past predictions for Cerner stock performance in order to determine what credibility that he should be given. Previous score: Reality - 1 : Fuzzy - 0.
On the morning of June 28th, 2012, Fuzzy made the following prediction for CERN: "Upside has been played out. Market saturation. Loss of clients to other vendors." The stock opened at $38.59 at the time of that post.
Well, how did things turn out? Well, the stock immediately popped after that, hitting $41.85 just 5 days later. It then trended down for the rest of the year, bottoming out at $33.82 on October 25th, before beginning a long consistent upward trend to the low 60's in February of 2014.
So, I would score this as follows:
Short term: 0
Medium term: 1
Long term: A Big Zero.
Awarding one possible point for each fuzzy prediction, I would score this one as;
Fuzzy: 1/3 Reality: 2/3
Total score so far: Fuzzy: 1/3 Reality 1 2/3
Accuracy is paramount. Thank you.
You are correct, past performance is no guarantee of future results. However, the past is prologue. For the past 11 years, CERN has returned on average 34.17% annually to its investors. That is simply phenomenal and represents a tremendous achievement! Over that same time, short sellers and other nay-sayers have been consistently taken to the cleaners. Consistently.
Could it change? Sure! Will it? Perhaps. But those over the years who have made such warnings have proven to be consistently wrong. Some day....
If the focus is only on CERN's EHR business, (especially domestically), then I can see why negativity may be the sage course. But, I don't think the domestic EHR business will be driving CERN's growth in the future.
Alright, you're right, the July '13 split wasn't factored, so I totally missed that one. I'll admit it. Happy now?
However, past performance is no guarantee of future results, let's focus on the one-year bet we made. Let's see how CERN fares in the next six months relative to the general market.
The EHR business is going to slow down as net new installs will be replaced with organizations jumping ship from one vendor to another. The question is, will Cerner have net install growth (as hospitals jump ship to Cerner) or erosion of their base (as hospitals leave Cerner for other vendors)?
You're funny. Didn't you realize that CERN split AGAIN in July of 2013? Do you KNOW how stock splits work? That price of $78.14 on 3/16/12 is adjusted to $39.07 today after that July/2013 stock split.
Are you man enough to admit it when you are wrong? Examining your posts over the past several years, you are so anxious to call others out when you feel they made a mistake. You make them all the time, I've been calling them out. Have you once admitted error? No. Think about it dude. Are you the person you want others to be?
" CERN continued to climb after that, and hit a high a year later of $78.14 on 3/16/12, $156.28 adjusting for the split that occurred in June of 2011."
CERN was at almost $80 a share? Do you mean before it split, in which case your point is meaningless? Or, are your numbers faulty, AGAIN? CERN's all time high is $63.07. And being close to $60 now (just 5% away from the high), what's your point?
PLEASE, if you are going to quote numbers, get them right. You look very foolish when you don't. Like you did in 2011 (above).
Ah, tongo, you're doing well on the bet we made, so far. But we have two more full quarters to go through before you can gloat.
As to the post above, you seem to ignore the fact that CERN was at almost $80 a share and now is around $60. And the EMR market is reaching saturation in the US.
How's that DOD contract doing? :-)
not only possible,but probable...on average has increased 12 % in september... charles payne had a $70 target !!
