    Electronics Slowdown

    Consumers are not buying electronics, which will impact Dolby. This stock could easily get cut in half. Great company and long-term prospects, but I expect the next year or two to get ugly...and eventually a good buying opportunity. Stay on the sidelines for now.

    • Thanks to you guys for these posts. After not seeing much discussion - except for spam - on the board, it's good to have some gossip about DLB.
      I feel that all of you are correct. Yes, there may be a consumer tech downturn, but DLB is a very popular technology, much like Apple and the iPod and iPhone. It's a good buy for the intermediate term (or long term, if the stock market survives).

      • You're right - way too much spam on all of these Yahoo boards. I've learned to expect good earnings from DLB regardless of fear and volatility. Too many people around the world see their "gadgets" as needs rather than wants, the Dolby 3D Cinema product seems to be doing well, and I'm wondering if we could see any revenue from the new Dolby Mobile products through Nokia and LG? Dolby is the cream of the crop in this market segment - it will do just fine.

    • Worse advice I ever heard.

    • I don't think so. It happens every Q, DLB gets down graded and then reports great earnings. Yes, maybe earnings won't be as huge as before but they will still beat.

      • I agree with the original poster to this thread. It's going to be all about... "future guidance". Good numbers will fall on deaf ears in my opinion.

        I've been following, and trading in and out of AXYS who's earnings were just 2 days ago.

        A lot like DLB, they continue to blow away earnings estimates and they also guided higher and said in 2009 they anticipate no affect from the global slowdown.

        What did the market say...? So What!!!

        And in fact, Dolby traded down after last Q's earnings report, and on good numbers.

        It might be a different story in more calming market conditions, but...

        Love Dolby, very cautious.

        Best to you
