    Time to sell?

    by hullelulle2003 Sep 12, 2014 12:55 PM

    Harman International Industries, Incorporated (HAR) saw a big move in the last trading session, as the company’s shares fell by nearly 6% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent trend for HAR, as the stock is now down over 21% in the past one-month time frame.

    This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as the maker of audio products and electronic systems has seen 3 negative revisions in the past few weeks and its current year earnings consensus has also moved lower over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

    HAR currently holds a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell), while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

    Sentiment: Sell

    I´ll buy back below $70!

  • Look at the Insider Transactions next days/weeks!

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Apple frivolously, irresponsibly threw over 3 billion at a recent newcomer/fluke haedphones seller, Dr. Dre's Beats. What the company lacks in profit margin for overrated headphones (except by Amazon consumers, who routinely pan them), headphones now being sued as Bose knock-offs (just what Apple needed--to spend billions on the opportunity to incur a massive fine--double reverse-indemnity for Apple). These negatives supposedly will be made up for by Dr. Dre's "connections" with "Hollywood insiders" (apparently no one on the Apple's aging board has heard that one).. A huge embarrassment, not to mention loss, for Apple. Look for them to come after industry-leading Harman Industries next. Two years ago Apple could have bought the company whose "iSub" was inspired by Apple as well as the "Harman Kardon Sounsticks, the nicest complement to an iMac. If not a buy-out, Apple will establish a major share position in Harman, which is also the industry leader in supplying quality audio to automobiles (how could Apple be so tone-deaf, unaware, dumb (and deaf). Are Cook's advisors fearful of telling him the score? Of course they are. They're older than him, desperate to "tune in" rather than "drop out."

    Even at a loss, and a set-back, Apple will in the long run recover thanks to Harman, which gives Apple some control of the actual sounds emitting from their iTunes catalog and mobile devices. Harman gives them the whole world of audio, from a single consumer's iPod to the most luxurious automobiles to the world's largest theaters. Every true "insider" knows that JBL "rules" in the music world. (Even Tivoli, a descendent of the East Coast's Henry B. Kloss, responsible for what was revolutionalry in the '60s--Acoustic Research, the AR2 and 3, hermetically sealed, low-efficiency, high-fidelity bookshelf speakers--would have been infinitely preferable to, who?, Beats!?!

    Inevitably, Apple will wake up, and holders of Harman stock will be the winners.
