    • What's actually funny are the people who don't understand the product, business, or regulatory environment surrounding LED. Cree isn't a "lightbulb maker" - they make the chips that power many LED lighting products, primarily those made by other companies. GE, for example, has selected Cree chips to power their mainstream bulbs coming to market this fall. LED chips aren't like batteries or many other technologies... they are progressing in leaps and bounds in terms of quality, while costs are plummeting. They are much like computer chips in that sense. Also, the government has outlawed incandescent bulbs, beginning in 2012 for some, progressing to the rest later. I hate government intervention in the marketplace, but it definitely helps Cree in this case, as it forces consumers to buy more of their products. CFLs are much cheaper, have generally better light, and though the don't last as long, are better for most applications right now. However, given their mercury content and slow rate of improvement, LED lighting will overtake them in a couple of years (it already has for many commercial applications - that's why Walmart and some big government operations are already using it instead of CFL). Last, LED lighting isn't just bulbs. Ever heard of LED-backlit LCD TVs? Any idea how fast that segment is growing?

      Do your research and you'll see why Cree's earnings might double year over year for the next several years. This is a massive product on the cusp. Most people haven't seen an LED bulb in someone's home yet, or aren't aware that it is powering a TV or airline or auto light. That's about to change.

    • I almost had a good laugh at your hilarious

      comment, till i got to the point were i am

      the king of idiots. At the same sentence

      you agree with my assessment about a friggen

      light bulb company blasted of into the hemispher

      trying to knock out hedge funds. your too funny

      and pathetic to say the least.

      we say it again, this rocket once crashes will

      make us millions. were are verrry patient, and

      our record is 99.1% accurate.

      True, a lot of idiots here - a few who got lucky with this stock, and therefore think they are brilliant, but are clearly just stupid and lucky. And you got uber-nerds like SOITech who confuse an understanding of some niche technology with an understanding of markets, and you also have a couple of men whose avaters and persona are women. And you've got hirisk, who got burned on his short, and the only way he can comes to terms with it is to see other lose money in the stock worse than he did.

      But it not unique - all stocks boards have these same collections of characters, all kind of pathetic, or maybe just normal. But as long the stock moves up at the nice clip it has, it's all good - we're all making money, and even hirisk could be, too, if he'd only get over the pyschological block that prevents him from betting with the tide. After all,s stops and puts and can protect against fear of falling when you catch a high flier

    • Look, you're the biggest cry baby on this or any board. YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT! You were on here when Cree was at $30 bashing and trying to get your shorts to pay off. Well my guess is that you LOST YOUR SHORTS!!! LMAOAUSMF!!!

      Now you're back trashing other investors because you keep losing. Sure, you'll make some lame claim about how much you made today, but my bet is that you're eating beanie weenies in your mom's basement spanking your monkey!

      Go elsewhere and spread your vomit!

      LOSER!

    • I am making money this year. How about you? I'm guessing not.

      mothra

    • Are you up or down? That's all I want to know! Stop posting dumb remarks.

    • Well first of all insiders own 4% of the company. And as far as being just a "lightbulb company", sounds like a great place to be considering the TAM for "lightbulbs" is 100B and growing and that in 8-10 years that market will have transitioned to the products that I make. I also like being the technology leader in "lightbulbs" (actually solid state lighting chips and fixtures for those that don't understand Cree's biz). I expect Cree to provide amusement and wealth to those who hold the stock, understand the biz, the market and the future...at the expense of those who make idiotic posts like the one I'm responding to.
