If they fail do meet lowered expectatons, stock will implode, unless, unless, they guide way up and indicate bookings are out of control. Given the condition of the dollar, I suppose earnings will suffer and that will be the prominent excuse, if that's the case they are right to only a certain extent, business is softening big time, this is one that needs a year to straighten out. Better places to be, this is down an astounding 35% from its highs, not good and going lower. At least I got out of Veco. another turd from Forbes like this one.
i own some cldx. these are two entirely different stocks. FEIC is a long term nanotech play... thinly traded and not as volitile as cancer immunotherapy stocks.
the real way to generate conversation here is to discuss nanotech. I had heard of FEI company before and knew they sold microscopes. Never did any dd on them though. I started researching how lockheed martin produces their graphene desalinization material. which led me to FIB and dual beam. Which led me to FEIC. I can't tell if Lockheed is using FEI's products in their desalinization project or not. But from there I started researching FEI's product lines further. From what I can see they are the best nanotech pure play in the public markets.... their products are involved in some interesting fields. The low trading volume is a cause for concern. I welcome discussion here. Still early in my dd with FEIC... I appreciate any tips jumping off to further research...
I put the 60k on this sale all in to aapl, @ 121. Two family members work there in Cupertino and LOVE their jobs. Do you have any idea how many huge companies are writing apps for the new smart watch. New apple tv, and appl pay kicking #$%$, tons of cash, low pe to market, no brainer. did well on feic purchased at 28 750 shrs. I'm going to buy another 500 of aapl at market tomorrow. That puppy is going to be 190 end year and 600 by 2019. I also love LNKD,I have folks i know there, do you think they might be jumping on an awesome app for the watch, you know they are. LIKE LNKD A LOT, MISSED IT THOUGH. BUY THAT ONE ON A GOOD PULL BACK.
