    .....STRONG 4th Q. but "Guidance" means everything !!!

    CRM isn't competition but they often trade in same directions and off of each other's earnings. Same thing with FFIV and CRM.

      • Well another crapshoot, but their earnings release is pulling same spin MLNX tried. Highlight the year over year comparisons as being record and try to shuffle the qtr to qtr and guidance for next quarter at the end, bottom or GEE just focus on what a great year it WAS.
        If it washes down to 80 -83 level I will probably buy. It does this like clockwork last few years.
        If it recovers and holds 85 or higher tomorrow probably still looking to buy. EMC and the management and business changes are clouding up, pun, what's going on at VMW.

        Sentiment: Buy

      • Considering BIDU, haven't done it yet. VMW I lean towards it popping but the trade that's worked previously is to buy, sell covered call, and collar with a put out of money under just in case until after earnings release. Going to just watch it this time. Things are too frothy really making for a lot of crapshoots.

        Sentiment: Buy
