    Interesting activity today

    All day the bid has been trending lower in mid 4figure numbers overwhelming the ask. This is not a pattern of some institution reducing a position.They normally do it over time with minimum effect..This looks like either shorting or manuvering the pps down. The reason? Trying to trap some margin players or weak hands? Running over some stop loss positions? Some leaks on a Q 4 disappointment? Trying to get a grip ahead of a Q4 blowout? Taking gains before the cliff? Interesting.

    • Personally, I think this is pure profit taking. The funds that got in very early could be cashing out just to pump up their yearly performance numbers. We may see a little more of this yet, but If these funds and others like what they see in NTE, they will be back in bigger numbers. Come next week, we could see some strong buying to lock in before the date of record for the next dividend.

      The fiscal cliff fiasco buy “your” not mine, elected clowns in Washington are also showing that they really do not care about anything or anyone and it is about them getting reelected. This is causing so much volatility in the markets right now. If they can get their act together, you will see one powerful rally that could see a 1,000 point run up in no time.

      As for any news leaks, NTE has in the past been very tight lipped and you never see a run up or drop in price before any news release. Heck, look at last quarter’s earnings release, no run up in the stock,and the day of the good earnings release, the stock climbed over 40% in one day. The market had no clue even tough Koo basically told everyone that earnings are increasing fast.

      Hold on, 2013 will be a very, very good year.

      • I just think everyone should know 1) I was wrong about last quarter (very wrong), but I quickly covered and went long right after the released. 2) I was briefly short again after the hype. 3) I covered the short, and am long 60,000 shares. 4) next year will be good, it will be very good. And guess what, there will be research coverage. Also, koo is clever even though chinese. I realize he has many americans around him who give very good advice. Am I behind on NTE, yes, but if stock goes to $17.40 i am at breakeven. It will go much higher i think. nice video on new site (wink)

        If anyone wants to see another stock that can double in 2013 buy AMCC. no one comments on their board. Do research. They have a 1-year advantage on their Arm-based low-power server chip. It is a play on cloud and storage. Insiders were buying last month. Many good things there, a real story.

        I have been short IMOS (it is a value trap) and the IMOS board hates me when I post, but it can be verified that I recommended amcc at $6.70. It will be $10 within 12 days. Good luck.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • Much the same as yesterday. At one point it was a low bid with 23500 shares against an ask of 300 shares. Someone is walking the pps down. While this company has yet to attract the large brokerage analysts, it has surely attracted some hedge funds and players. Do not let this false front shake you out of your shares. Q4 looks secure and 2013 is likely to make this micro-cap the topic of much attention. With over a month until the Q4 CC there will be a big push to establish a low entry point for new institutions. I am now thinking I will begin adding around 14.30 if it ever gets that far.I would think those long time holders with a cost basis of 5-6 would not risk being out of this stock in 2013. It could be a 20-30 ps company then. And, dont ever think this is a fair or level playing field. Once the big players move in they will make this pps jump like a yo-yo. All legal of course.

    • I'm thinking this might be profit taking. If there had been a negative leak on Q 4 the price would have dropped much more and I think there would have been more volume. These small caps are not for the faint of heart and I may be getting to old to own them.

      Sentiment: Buy
