    Quiet

    There is a story on TheStreet.com about the heavy
    ownership of TER by institutions. The figures that I have
    seen indicate 86%
    ownership.

    http://www.thestreet.com/_yahoo/funds/funds/1023294.html

    Here are some of the pros and cons that the article
    mentions:

    "It represents something of a seal of approval by
    professionals, but there's a downside, too: Institutions tend to
    buy stock in big hunks, which can send prices up in a
    hurry, but when the big boys sell, prices can sink just
    as fast. "

    Insitutional ownership of AMAT is
    about 64% despite its much larger market
    cap.

    Now if we could get some institutions to buy again,
    we will see 70 by Friday (g).

    Good Luck

    • If TER is 86% owned by institutions, then even a
      modest selloff will create a major price
      plunge.

      If 10% of the institutions sell then 8.6% of the
      shares become available. If individual investors own
      only 14%, they would have to increase their position
      by 61% to absorb all the stock that becomes
      available.

      TER management must increase the ownership of their
      stock by individuals. And the first step in this
      process would be to hold an open conference after an
      earnings release instead of just meeting with analysts.
