    Entire Chip Sector Breaking Out Today

    If I were running this company and there was even a slight possibility that the previously lowered guidance provoked selloff was a tad bit irrational (as in a full 30% below target), I would get my marketing departement to put out some PR RIGHT NOW before we miss out on one of the best markets in history. With our luck, they'll wait to raise guidance until the Q2 report and the conference call - just as the market is peaking and starts to roll over. You just cant win with this poorly timed PR machine. Your best hope is buying and selling exactly when PatrickHenry, the CEO and his band of merry makers do. Last time they acted in unison, it was a SELL, and the best shorting opportunity "tell" of any stock I've seen in over 35 years of trading. He never bought back a single share on the open market.

    • That is what is really frustrating. The market is hitting highs and is carrying almost all stocks with it....except this one. The timing couldn't have been worse. The question becomes what happens when the market runs out of steam? I do not see much downside risk for ENTR because its been hammered so badly, but if ENTR finally turns the corner we may not see the rocket higher that we might have if the market was humming.

      That said, what kind of PR could they put out here? Their guidance pretty much told us that this quarter and into the next is going to be lousy. The real turnaround should come in the third and fourth quarter. It isnt a PR that I am looking for, its some serious bullish guidance for end of year results in the April 30th call.

        So you say "the market is hitting highs and is carrying almost all stocks with...except this one"?
        Lets review:

        Is the Nasdaq composite at 5000? No, its 3300. Another 50% move and we will almost be there.

        How about chip stocks then. Is the SOX index at 1100? No, its 435. Another 250% move and we will almost be there.

        Well what about ENTR's competitors then.
        BRCM's 52 week high is 37.90. Its now 33.88. Over the last 30 days its flat. Its 52 week low is 28.60.
        LSI's 52 week high is 8.81. Its now 6.87. Over the last 30 days its down. It's closer to its 52 week low of 5.59.

        It seems that not all stocks and sectors are hitting new highs.

        You should think before you type. You will sound less like the idiot you are.
