Good luck to
She had a stealth post on this board within the
last couple of weeks:
ADI, ELNT, LLTC,
MCRL and MXIM

< From a relative
strength perspective it appears that ELNT is outpacing
ADI, LLTC, MCRL and MXIM.
Can anyone here that
follows the analog sector please comment on why ELNT has
been performing so strongly relative to its peers?
Glad you're back! I was worried you gave up after
the INTC plunge...but looks like Intel is in rebound
mode (let's hope!) You might want to sell off SOME of
your ADI soon, as it's going up. Why not sell off in
small installments on the ascent?
Thanks for the recall on the lineargirl
situation...I hope she resurfaces w/ some details that are
CONSTRUCTIVE. I agree about ADI's board being relatively
non-piggy (though cal/hal/sal's sickening AIDS jokes/gay
bashing is disturbing, to say the least). Also agree that
ADI is fantastic to own long-term. I don't think I
even carry a cost basis anymore: Invested $1,000 in
1977 through employee stock purchase plan. Have
enjoyed several splits and have sold off several shares
through the years, still hold a nice chunk. My only real
regret: Not buying on the dips (and there have been some
wild ones, way down to single digits in the 1980s!)
IMHO, hold as much as you can through next 18 months,
Concerninig Lineargirl, I also felt she was
knowledgeable and she had some inside information (her
boyfriend or something...)
is too bad that she doesn't
post here anymore. I think it would be very intersting
to know about this famous deal that Jerry evoked in
august, also what is the impact of the collaboration with
Intel (products were supposed to be announced in second
Like Kat, my average per share value
is below $1, and I would like to make a decision,
should I follow Jutt, sit tight, or run with my
money...I am a little nervous. In 1995 I sold some ADI
shares and i bought some Intel (best two companies in
Analog and Digital world) but Intel was slashed in two
and I don't want to see ADI fall to $30. (this could
happen in ligth of the present global environment.
am glad to see all the old posters back.
I remember when I submitted my profile the first
time, I had clicked on female. Then, around March
(before the tech-wreck), I went back to the very
beginning of ADI's message board & found the attack on
lineargirl. Talk about ugly...as far as I could see she was
asserting some negative but sincerely realistic ADI
business issues, only to be surrounded by sharks. The
stuff said to her may have sounded "harmless" to some
of the boys, but apparently lineargirl didn't
appreciate them saying they "wanted to get horizontal" w/
her...Can you really blame her for swimming away? Anyway, I
think that's when I changed my profile to "no answer"
on ALL the basic demographics: Might seem evasive
now, but felt self-protective at the time.
I actually FEEL a lot like Burl Ives these days,
though I hope to hell I don't look like him! (No offense
to the many Burl Ives groupies out there.) You're
right, though, I am pretty scholarly around the
edges...that's my excuse for being a basically lucky but
Well, Profpeartree, that just goes to show how
false an image the mind can ceate from a made-up name
and a few posts. My mind conjured up a scholarly
Burle Ives picture for you. Now I am going to have to
trash that and start all over. Any hints?
Perhaps I was a bit harsh.
you did show up at about the same time as genius and
surewin, and I did say you ask naive questions for a
stockholder since '81.
As a long time holder I am
surprised you thought buying at 77 was a good deal, when as
of late 60 is a good deal.
ADI is notorious for
delayed openings and Halts at open due to order
Sorry if this board seems a little rude to new posters.
