    nvda Underperformed the S&P 500 by (-26.67%)

    nvda Underperformed the S&P 500 by (-26.67%)



    nvda opened the year 2012 optimistically enough.

    Too optimistically as it turned out.

    The first trade at the opening bell on January 3, 2012 was $14.30

    Looks like good money today, right boys?

    $14.30

    It sure does.

    Because at the final bell for 2012, nvidia closed at $12.26

    Minus (-$2.04) per share for the year.

    A Loss of (-14.26%) on nvda stock.

    (-14.26%)



    The S&P 500 Index of good stocks did much better than nvda.

    Much Much Better, boys.

    The S&P 500 Index was UP +13.41% for 2012.

    +13.41%



    So to recap how your sinking nvda performed for 2012

    relative to the S&P 500:


    + 13.41% __ S&P 500 Index of good stocks

    (-14.26%) __ nvda
    -----------

    (-27.67%) __ Underperformance by nvda for 2012



    Do try to pick a better stock next year, boys.

    Seriously.

    • So Master?


      Does this sinker take an Act of Congress to go up?

      And why not cut out the middleman, and just invest in Congress?



    • Jeepers Best,


      A year ago, on January 3, 2012, nvidia was at $14.30 at the opening bell.

      This year -- not so much.

      Maybe it can coattail its way to $12.30?

      So two bucks gets chucked in one year.

      Like Jim Cramer said on his CNBC Mad Money Show,

      "Nvidia IS an expensive stock."



    • Good point, Best.


      About the irony that the less they spend on Jen's bonus,

      the more likely that the Big Dog owners will vote for them.
      a

      Which I believe, after the 2014 Annual Meeting, each and

      every nvidia director will stand for election Annually.



    • "Let's hope the Board follows their own duly approved Corporate Governance.

      And gives Jen a goose egg for a bonus.

      'Cause as the above section entitled "Governance" says,

      "From and after the 2014 Annual Meeting, all directors will stand for election annually."



      It's ironic, yes?

      It sure is.

      In most election campaigns, spending More results in a higher chance of winning.

      More advertising and yard signs and this and that = Victory at the Polls.

      But not in the re-election of nvidia directors to their cushy jobs.

      Oh no no no.

      It's just the opposite.

      The less they spend on Jen's bonus -- the more likely the Big Dogs will vote for them.


      Did I mention?

      It's ironic, right?



    • Agreed, Best.


      It would not only be a crime to pay current CEO Jen any bonus for 2012,

      it would go against nvidia's own duly approved Corporate Governance.

      And I quote:


      Executive Compensation

      "Our compensation program is designed to attract, retain and motivate a talented,
      innovative and entrepreneurial team of executives. To do so, we believe that the
      vast majority of their compensation should be based on performance, both of the
      individual and of the business."


      "The vast majority of Jen's compensation should be based on performance
      of the business."

      With negative alpha of (-27.67%) versus the peer group S&P 500,

      nvidia's performance was really bad. Really Really Bad.


      Here. You can read it yourself.

      Google this : Governance - Nvidia


      Let's hope the Board follows their own duly approved Corporate Governance.

      And gives Jen a goose egg for a bonus.

      'Cause as the above section entitled "Governance" says,

      "From and after the 2014 Annual Meeting, all directors will stand for election annually."



    • So Best?


      Chief Executive Officer Jen doesn’t get any bonus for 2012, does he?

      I would hope not.

      The guy’s “leadership” was bad during 2012.

      Oh so Bad.

      Jen’s company underperformed the S&P 500 by (-27.67%)

      Which is clearly a sign of bad leadership, right?

      It sure is.

      Well okay. Maybe bad vision, bad strategy, and bad execution too.

      Jen selling all of nvidia’s IP to Intel Corporation wasn’t the best move either.


      And since Jen is the titular head of this misguided outfit – he is responsible.

      It would be a crime if Jen’s hand-picked, sock puppet Board of Toadies

      votes to pay the guy any bonus for 2012.



      The Big Dog owners of nvidia will most assuredly be outraged.

      Yes, Outraged, boys.

      Even more outraged than they were about going 19 years without a dividend.

      Outraged about how on earth a Chief Executive Officer of a company turning

      in negative alpha of (-27.67%) could possibly earn any Bonus.

      And they will probably use their Monte Blancs to check some different proxy circles.

      You know, where it says “Re-Election of Directors”.

      Heck, they might even write-in a few hand-picked names of their own.

      The outraged Big Dog owners can do that, don't u know.
