Over the last 30 days I have witnessed a cycle of emotional reaction to ALU's stock price decline. The first stage was "Disbelief" -----Something like " What the @$%* is going on.
The second stage was "Anger"-----Something like "This is bull%$*t, this a POS stock."
Third stage was "Bargining"---------Something like " Please ALU merge with NSN"
The forth stage is "Acceptance"-----Here a bottoming pattern emerges over a period of time
The fifth stage is "Reversal"----------Here the stock rises without explanation or even bad news
Judging from the post over the last thirty days, it would appear we are entering a bottoming stage that will be followed by a reversal in the not to distant future. My guess is that will be slightly before or after the first quarter report. Knowing the emotional cycle of investing can help an investor make investment decisions "Ahead Of The Crowd". ..........Tickerguy
Thanks Tickerguy for the list. Over time and quarters, the orders seemed very good and yet earnings have been negative. I remember Rumors-twillight replies, "the orders will not be enough." I had not looked at the books and watched the orders prior.
I looked at Cisco earning last night, what a nice balance sheet. Cisco would seem to have it correct.
The products seem to be running neck Multiple manufactures with "small cells" and or "femto cells"
If new products can increase demand and if the european upgrade can increase demand that may help. Dolphin hit it on the head with one of her posts, If they can't make money on all these contracts there is a problem.
