maybe the numbers aint as good as they say, with that drop late in the day.
Wow, day after day, big sells driving the price lower. We'd be in the 2's if it were not for a) blatant manipulation via short selling, or b) a big boy wants out but the low volume prevents large sells thus many smaller sells, or c) insiders dumping.
Either way, I find this most distressing, the downtrend is becoming established and will be harder to turn around the longer it goes on. I believe this company is doing the right things, and I'm long on this stock. Maybe I'll get to buy this at a lower price - or the earnings tomorrow will put additional share purchases out of my reach. OCLR deserves to be in the 3's at least. IMHO.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
re: Too risky for me" Then go away! Leave this message board and take your pessimistic attitude with you.
Hey dude, take a look at NPTN now. Its lost half of its value since I posted that....That's what I meant about being too risky for me....got it?
Not able to be profitable is a start to the discussion, but that may change when they announce this week.
Seems like they walked out on Oclaro this week until the report is released on Wednesday. Depending how the report goes we might see fireworks.. Short volume in this stock increased by 2 million shares.. Soooo if its bad its going to be bad or if their restructuring is on track and is well received then maybe some major short covering. Just like what happened when the new low was set. Lets hope for the latter scenario..
Recent results and a series of impressive-sounding government initiatives in the largest markets in emerging Asia–Pacific (EMAP) are challenging conventional wisdom about the technology choices that will enable universal Internet access. The assumption has been that while developed nations would slowly evolve to a fibre-based fixed solution, emerging markets would not be able to generate the service revenue that would justify a major fixed network roll-out and would be left with a cellular solution.
EMAP is expected to add more new fibre broadband connections than the rest of the world combined during the next 5 years, thanks to consumer demand for fixed service and the high-speed unlimited throughput it can deliver (more than 100GB per month on average in markets as different as Hong Kong, Romania and the USA, and it is not unreasonable to expect this level of latent demand in South-East Asia).
China will dominate FTTx in the region, but other markets are beginning to catch up
With almost 74 million FTTx connections at the end of 2013, China is by some distance the dominant fixed broadband market in the region. The country's success has been almost solely the result of the government's enormous investment in fixed network infrastructure, which will pass more than 185 million premises by 2019, according to our latest forecasts for the EMAP region.
These statistics are highly impressive, and there are other signs that this public-sector-driven approach will be effective. Malaysia's HSBB project, which was completed in 2013, has a take-up rate well in excess of 40% of homes passed by the high-speed network, which demonstrates strong consumer demand for the genuinely unlimited throughput that a fixed service can offer.
This is only the industrial and consumer part of the ex-Opnext business, Oclaro will still have a presence in Japan after this deal is completed for their datacom business.
how much more patience can you have for this dog. it's been yearsssssss. now another asset sale from a misguided "strategy" to get to $1Bln. What's the next story?

yahoo boards messed up as usual. the 100G Metro Access market will be comprised of direct detection modules rather than coherent and will ramp in 6 to 8 years when unit pricing falls under $5,000.
Here's the latest from A. Schmitt, Infonetics on 100G:
100G Long Haul or Core ( 600 km links) current cycle peaking next year. Major players: AT&T, Ciena, and
Infinera. Limited participation by optical component vendors.
100G Metro Regional (80 km - 600 km links) ramping in 2016 as pricing parity with 10G transmission
falls into line
