I can't see a sustained price run up into earnings and I have the chance to lock in profits now and not gamble on gt's conference call and earnings. I think they will be good, but haven't seen the best action after earnings over the last three quarters. I doubt we will see much of a fluctuation in price from here until earnings, but I see another 20% shave post earnings if they keep blowing smoke and have nothing of substance (new orders etc.) to offer during the conference call. I could be wrong, we will see. I definitely plan on jumping back in after the first order gets announced. Good luck to all faithful longs!
I guess you missed the post saying GTAT is going to $35. J/K. I think we go higher from here, but I also took some profits at $5. I just like the way this is holding up at this price. They will probably beat the lowered expectations. Sixty-five percent of the companies reporting are beating estimates. The solar sector is in an uptick. I don't see a lot more than 10% risk to the downside, with the possibility of a slow crawl to $7. Like you said, GTAT shares will still be available after earnings. GL.
iggi: That is how I saw it too. too much gamble for shorter term. It is easy to buy back in & most likely lower than todat's price. The best guidance the company can give most recently is saying they hope to meet expectations for the year.
