This speaks loudest. I believe Vanguard also took a significant position. Heck, the fact that an otherwise conservative value investor like me also is in GTAT resonates.
Just kidding. My only negative in the whole picture so far is insider compensation & selling. It doesn't obviate the positives. Heck, the CEO of SalesForce hasn't hurt his company's growth by cashing in $500 million so far. But given that SalesForce makes no profit and is on course for a severe correction one day, well, I hope you see my point.
I prefer that leaders lead by example in having faith in their company by holding and even buying. I don't want to get too far off topic, but it's a problem with many companies in the US.
Zacks by the way is typical of the combination of market manipulation, ignorance, and legal but unethical theft that involves a collusion of analysts, actively managed funds, ibanks, hedge funds, private equity, and venture capital. Nuff said. As is obvious, do your own research, analysis, and decision making...using the cynicism of institutional interests to your advantage.

"profit from insider trading". The link itself should read insidercow after the search. Research the Solar and LED buy and sell history of the corporate insiders. This will give you an idea that insider buying and selling really isn't all that important, especially when it comes to stock appreciation. Short term fluctuation yes, long term, not really. Play around with the site, its useful.
-With that said I got to get back to business. Talk to you all later.
