If approved by regulators, GET READY FOR YEARS OF LITIGATION.
at Buy, Strong Buy or Outperform and the stock ends down on the day. Today stock continues to go down. Now down 3%. So we have had a tepid response to the IPO and now the underwriting firms pushing this stock again to no avail. Looks like nobody falling for their crap.
That is interesting. Someone from Yahoo engineering, there is a bug. A new topic can be open only with a single line. But if I make a subsequent reply to my topic, I can paste the remaining content. Sorry about chaotic posts.
Yahoo board is behaving strange. It seems to accept only one line....
It is hard to see an exit of this. The interest is just to damn high.
Too bad it can't go bankrupt and restructure the deal with banksters.
That deal was made in the top of the interest rates and is now killing every
bit of chance for FSL to grow.
A brief look at the last quarter (mil $).
Gross margin: 532 (do not take the 484 figure from GAAP tables, as that
contains non-cash depreciation; go for the 532 figure from adjusted gross
So, operating earnings are 108 (GM minus the rest).
But when you take -148 as "other expense", all of it being "interest expense,
net" of -149 mil $. It is simply draining cash out of its systems to the banks.
Doing similar calculations, or looking at the cash flow, everyone can see
that FSL is not even paying the principal of the debt. It is simply on
negative cash flow paying the interest of the debt.
And actually what I think triggered the short covering in the last couple of days is the restatement of a flat next quarter, or as it was said "marginally sequentially growth". Some thought that FSL will show a severe weakness. But they will have to wait a little.
From FTF: "Application examples for the T4240 device include metro carrier edge routers, access gateways and aerospace/defense products. Freescale will provide more details regarding the T4240 product later this year. The device is planned for initial availability in early 2012."
This will explain why FSL will continue to follow the trend of CIEN, TLAB, PMCS (among others) down... Same tired segments, same tired message, new soon-to-be-tired architecture.
Oh yeah: the other "news" is the annual statement of re-affirmation by QNX and Wind River pledging allegiance to "love, honor, and hold" FSL forever, amen. Yep, real growth strategy here (lol!).
The existing portfolio of BlackBerry products has been in market for close to a year, and delivering new products has proven more challenging than anticipated," RIM Co-CEO Jim Balsillie said on a conference call with analysts.
Buy The Beaton Down Chips 1 minute ago This is the most attractive.
Netflix, Apple, Intel and Wal-Mart are connected to video streaming. Microsoft, Sony, Amazon, Netflix, Blockbuster and Roxio CinemaNow, a division of Sonic Solutions, all offer online movie stores for Internet-connected devices like HDTVs, Blu-ray players or video game consoles. Apple sells movies and TV shows alongside music in its iTunes store. Entropic Communications has 70% of a rapidly growing streaming chip market and just announced shipping more than 50 million chips. Moca 2 is new. There is no competition for Moca 2. These FAB chips require
a cycle of about 5 years to reproduce. It was recently revealed MoCA 2.0, the new offering, will take on a greener posture along with the speed. One previously undisclosed wrinkle is Turbo. This wrinkle makes Moca 2.0 about 10 times faster than any chip on the market today. The New York Times is reporting that Walmart has agreed to buy Vudu, a streaming movie rental service. Despite its status as one of the biggest DVD and Blu-ray retailers in the country, Walmart has yet to make any moves into online video--until now. And Walmart (one of Fast Company's 2010 Most Innovative Companies) has the ability to shake up the field more than any other retailer.
The news known is nothing but positive for Entropic in the second half of the year.
Some short-sellers do not play by the rules. A small group of powerful hedge fund managers stop at nothing to annihilate the companies they sell short. Their tactics include: blackmail, smear campaigns, espionage, fraud, harassment, extortion, bribery, rumor-mongering, sabotage, off-shore money laundering, political cronyism, frivolous lawsuits, witness tampering, biased financial research, false identities, bogus credit ratings, bribery, libelous blogs, bad science, forgery, wiretapping, counterfeiting, collusion, lying, cheating, threats and theft.
The short position is quite large. For risk takers, that means opportunity. If the shorts are wrong, the stock will spike during the squeeze while the shorts try to get out.
employees being issued shares would be a form of a bonus, would it not? Could not the employees buy shares in the open market? Freescale is in debt, we finally got meager pay raises after nothing for 2-3 years. No one was expecting free shares! They are however coming up with an purchase plan for 2012. Not that I care...
I don't know how they are valuing the market cap, or the private stake for that matter.. The offering was small as you said, but from what I read, Blackstone still holds what they held, minus some portion. I mean, it's not like they got rid of the debt, Blackstone is still on the hook. They can still get screwed if the economy doesn't pick up big time (which we know isn't going to happen). I know that sometimes Yahoo shows a market cap that is smaller than what it should be, due to different stock classes (LODE, the Comstock metals company, is like that).
In theatre, a farce is a comedy which aims to entertain the audience by means of unlikely, extravagant, and improbable situations, disguise and mistaken identity, verbal humour of varying degrees of sophistication, which may include sexual innuendo and word play, and a fast-paced plot whose speed usually increases, culminating in an ending which often involves an elaborate chase scene. Farce is also characterized by physical humor, the use of deliberate absurdity or nonsense, and broadly stylized performances. Farces have been written for the stage and film.
C'mon Rich are you another Michelle gold digger? 733 mil raised yet 3.6 billion mkt cap? No employees issued shares? Where/What is the beef? Town Hall Question?
Market capitalization (often market cap) is a measurement of size of a business enterprise (corporation) equal to the share price times the number of shares outstanding (shares that have been authorized, issued, and purchased by investors) of a publicly traded company
How does Freescale only reap $733 million from the IPO and yet the market cap is 3.6 billion? They must of issued a sload to current management? They issued zero to employees. Maybe Rich's true colors are about to be exposed!
