They said this was a relative call. Who they call their Uncle Charly. Hey Uncle Charly what should I do about Netgear. Well Skip I just shorted the stock so a downgrade would be nice. No Problem Uncle Charly, see ya at Thanksgiving.
It's probably a cheap play to let a large customer(s) buy on a downdraft before earnings and conference call. If Skype numbers are large or guidance improves NTGR has to move up. For a growth stock, it has great numbers: sales growth, expanding and competitive product line, cash on hand, no debt, low float.
Typical analyst is playing the rubes. I'll trust the market.
