the ATT thing and continue to grow the top and bottom line. I think the Divi deal will help with this over time but it may take a quarter or two to make believers out of the boys on Wall Street. Right now they are so in love with SDLI, ETEK, JDSU, CIEN, and GLW that they are not giving HLIT the time of day. HLIT will have to continue to show that they are worthy of the attention they are now not getting. I am still a believer as long as they can continue to raise the bar each quarter. If revenues flatten out and they cannot produce the growth then all we have here is another 3Com that will always be in the shadow of someone else and never be a great performer again.
You were blindsided by the market, and you were blindsided by the analysts (Cowen lowering rating with the stock at 38, but maintaining a 90.00 target- 135% is not good enough for a strong buy), but you have not yet been blindsided by HLIT. Tomorrow, as the meeting progresses we will know more.
oh and screw you and your cocky ass. I have every right to whine. This fucker blindsided me but good. I am so tempted to do as you suggest but I will hold through the quarter and see if we can turn the corner.
the simple fact is, this market is not going to be around forever. As it makes the next move up, the same companies that Wall Street is in love with will be the same companies that outperform. That is the undeniable truth. The market is in love with the companies mentioned because they are exceeding expectations and have analysts convinced there is more of the same to come.
So when the market makes a real turn (and it will) for an extended trip down it won't much matter what your invested in, if your stubborn enough to stay in equities. You are going to suffer like you have never suffered. Sure the stock market over time has outperformed money investments but people who have pulled out at the onset of a bear market have outperformed exponetially over those that toughed it out. I hope I can get whole during the next leg up because I tend to think that will be the last leg up. and I'm talking about a real leg up, as in NDX 6500. That'll prolly be close to the top for the next 3 years. Then the bottom will prolly be NDX 2500 before going to 10 bills at the close of the decade. Will HLIT outperform TQNT, JDSU, SDLI, NXTL, VSTR, NOK, NT, CSCO, SUNW. It's not off to a very good start.
that over the long-term you can beat the market so stop whining. 90% of professional money managers have not been able to do it. A few stinkers with great fundamentals like HLIT will ensure that you can't beat it.
Like it or not investing in individual stocks should be a hobby. You are getting way to worked up over it.
you sound like a broken record with your going concerns. Sell the damn stock and move one to the high flyer. jeez, I wonder how many dumb asses chase qcom from 100 to 200 before it retreated to th e 60's. "All you hear are rationalizations"? , and what you think you have been typing?....certainly not wisdom or insight.
