    COUPONS ARE SENT EVERY QUARTER

    ...for $10 to customers who haven't ordered for a while. This way Amazon boosts repeat customer sales numbers. It's a very deceptive way to indicate that they have some sort of customer loyalty.

    • I traded out of two of my AMZN Sept Calls today @
      around 661/2, and bought YHOO Oct Puts @ 167.
      All
      trades so far very profitable.
      The DOT Index remains
      on a buy signal, and made a new high @ 635
      today.
      AMZN continues to make a series of higher highs &
      higher lows since the Aug 10th low.
      The Fed will not
      raise rates in Oct.
      The Put/Call Ratio is
      Bullish.
      Bearish Sentiment is up 2% according to Investor's
      Intelligence in New Rochelle, NY.

      All this considered,
      there is no Crash of '99 in sight!

    • both with their magic system predicted an up day.

      heads or tails tomorrow, heonjong?
      tails or heads tomorrow, house?

    • good idea on MU, nice contrarian play. Going
      short at 84 would have been a nice entry, but i think
      it'll close below 80 Friday due to high call/put
      ratio.

      DRAM prices have been sky rocketing and that's MU
      bread and butter and the whole semiconductor sector has
      been having a nice run. The question is "Has it
      topped?". I'm starting to think so, especially after the
      failure to rally today.

      i think INTC has topped at
      89 and its the sector leader. I own a few thousand
      shares of that, by far my highest holding so i try to
      follow it closely. A couple weeks ago, in fact, i sold
      covered calls @ 90 for all my INTC as i thought with a
      P/E of 42, it was way ahead of itself. Looks like
      i'll get to keep my premiums on that one.

      New equipment is also needed for the new types

      MU develops their own
      equipment that is far advanced beyond what the rest of the
      industry uses. You'd know that if you did any research and
      quit relying on these journalists.

      Remember he
      said "much" not all. Low-end, high-end, doesn't
      matter. INTC can make the highest-end chip imaginable. If
      nobody buys it what good is it to investors. Hey this
      isn't a science constest, guys, this is the business of
      investing.

    • Chip makers in for a long cycle

      NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- Semiconductor stocks came to
      life in the last few months, after a long period of
      poor performance.

      A better way to play the new
      upturn, would be to buy the companies that make the
      equipment that makes the semiconductors.

      An excess
      of chips and slow personal computer sales led to
      plunging prices for both chips and chip stocks. This has
      been particularly true for companies making low-end
      products like Micron Technology (MU: news, msgs) and
      Advance Micro Devices (AMD: news, msgs). High-end product
      makers, like Texas Instruments (TXN: news, msgs) and
      Intel (INTC: news, msgs), performed better because
      their products are considered leading technology.


      Demand has picked up again, but it's becoming clear to
      investors that, with the exception of the latest
      technology, chips are going to continue to see pricing
      pressures on a regular basis. If these companies are going
      to continue to prosper, they'll have to find ways to
      control costs.

      Much of the semiconductor industry is
      using older manufacturing equipment that needs to be
      replaced, in order to lower manufacturing cost. New
      equipment is also needed for the new types of chips being
      developed.

      More room in equipment
      stocks

      There should be additional room for semiconductor
      stocks on the upside in the next 6 to12 months. However,
      the easy money has probably already been made. A
      better way to play the new upturn, would be to buy the
      companies that make the equipment that makes the
      semiconductors. There are a number of companies that should
      benefit from this trend.
