Reminds me of Liz Dunn of FBR Capital ... she downgraded LULU saying margin erosion etc. but when they reported 3 weeks back, their margin went up. These analyst know nothing besides the main catalyst in my opinion is Google + and as the hype grows so will the share price.
omg Lulunite, my thoughts exactly..she pushed the stock down to 95, now look where it is. Analyst don't know any more than you and I about what goes on inside a company. If you look at MS's concerns on GOOGs, those were all issues from the last CC. WTF? So it took them all of 3 months, for the stock to go up 72pts one week before earnings, right on weekly expiration day for them to come out with these statements? Such manipulation...
me thinks they wanted to get in at a lower price just before earnings date. I suppose they have insider info that the qtr will be much better than estimated. So they wanted to be "assured" of some "decent" profit.
There should be a law restricting these ANALS from buying/selling any stock for at least amonth from the date they gave their "recommendations on the said stock. That way, their true "analytical" skills will be revealed-that their guessing is as good as the rest of us.
