    Going Up?

    I know TER is a wild ride but when is the stock going to go up?

    • that time management cannot provide any guidance
      (TER is in its quiet period). Since the last guidance
      was not that positive (at least according to ABN
      Amro) so we may have a long wait ahead of us for a
      surge in the stock price. I am afraid that the stock
      will continue to deteriorate until the earnings come
      out.

      I think that the earnings will be fine and the
      stock will rally nicely. But it's going to be a slow,
      grinding decline until July 18, IMHO.

      I hope that I
      am wrong.

      • If the stock must fall then let it fall. It's
        futile to try to support or pump it up. The shorts are
        having a field day with these high openings and lower
        closings.

        It's better that this stock opens
        lower--as low as possible so the shorts can start out the
        day at the lows, where profitting is least likely by
        the end of the day.

        So stop making positive
        comments about this company or the stock. It only gives
        the shorts better positioning from a higher opening
        price to short.

        No more upgrades, or super
        recommendations from goldman or anybody else. Rs ratings,
        capacity tightness, or any other positives.

        That
        just makes the stock more vulnerable to bad news when
        it arrives.

        Like Cramer says--the only way to
        stop the bear raids is to allow the stock to reach
        compelling valuation levels, where it becomes immune to bad
        news.

        When YHOO was a young company, the stock always opened
        down. And after all the shorts were finished shorting,
        the stock would run up by the end of the day. Shorts
        would be bleeding red all the way home.
