    So, first time back above 16 since Oct 2008!
    I sure hope the Q1 earnings report is as good as some people seem to think it will be...

  • Ahhh,

    Now we have corporate logo #5 (or is it 6?).
    Thus begins the comeback.

    Can Anyone Read????

    Gee, I don't know...

    It's already trading way below Book Value, and at only 3 times cash on hand.

    It sure wasn't over-valued before the news. It still dropped almost 7% the day after.

    You want more? Go find a company where the street didn't already expect bad news. We've gotten used to it around here.

    Put Avid for sale!

    So you're saying to put two "control freaks" together and you'll get a positive outcome? I'm not so sure...
    That's without even considering the past and current friction between these two particular companies.

    So, a Blum partner gets on the board Friday, and that doesn't budge the price Mon and Tue.
    It's up >7% in the last two days on no other news.
    Anyone have ideas why?

    > Please tell us the other version !

    The other version merely includes what happened before everything you just dredged up from the distant past. Your reason for the "wicked man" to do what he did just doesn't make sense. Your cause-and-effect for this being why he was "thrown out" doesn't match the timeline, either.

    I'm sorry, but I don't remember how much of what happened became public knowledge. It may sound convenient, and you may blast me for not "telling all". I'm just not comfortable providing details since I worked at Avid at the time and might say something I shouldn't.

    There are wicked men, and those willing to play hardball.

    That's a pretty good tale.

    I'll just say that many people remember the sequence of events a little differently than how you described them.

    The end result is, of course, much the same...

    hybrid tax credit restored to $2K

    LoopinFool LoopinFool Oct 1, 2004 7:11 PM Flag

    Actually, I believe it's an "above the line" deduction. That means anyone who qualifies (bought a brand new hybrid) gets to take the deduction, whether they itemize or not.

    Avid acquisition target..?

    Avid did make an attempt to put Media Composer on the SGI platform. The product was to be called Avid Media Fusion, and handled uncompressed video (may have been dual stream).

    You are almost correct, because it was part of Media Spectrum. You are correct that it never worked out. But, these were not only for the Onyx. They ran quite nicely on the Indigo boxes.

    Historic Low at <$9?

    by Its_Not_My_Business_But Aug 9, 2001 1:16 PM
    LoopinFool LoopinFool Aug 9, 2001 3:00 PM Flag

    No, $8.85 (31-Jul-01) is still the all-time closing low.
    The all-time intraday low was $8.70, on 2-Aug-01.

    The previous all-time intraday (and closing) low for AVID was indeed $9.00. Back then, it was really close to book value, and the company seemed to be in worse shape. Now, it's not so "bad", with book value down around $5.

    - LoopinFool

  • Oh, good. Shorts are the reason we're down here below 11. I'm not so worried now.

    - LoopinFool

  • Well, there goes my "following the Nasdaq"

    So, how low does AVID have to go before it gets
    pumped up again? Whatever the reason was for that runup
    to 25 just over a month ago, I'd really like to see
    it kick in again, soon!

    With the 1Q earnings out in just over a week, they sure should have warned before now if they're going to!

    Actually, from what I've been told by others in
    the past, going up on small volume is the good sign.
    When there's large volume buying, the price will
    pretty much go up no matter what. When the price goes up
    on small volume, that means that people are very
    willing to pay more for the stock.

    Here are my
    thoughts, and I'm no guru. This is coming from looking at a
    3-month chart of AVID and the Nasdaq, plus my

    Back around Feb 28, AVID was around $15/sh and the
    Nasdaq was at ~4600. AVID volume picked way up and the
    Nasdaq began its rise to 5000+. There was no real AVID
    news at all until Mar 13 when the upgrade came out. At
    that point, AVID volume dropped back down to normal,
    the Nasdaq started its rapid descent back to 4600,
    and AVID also dropped. It's been a pretty close race
    between the Nasdaq and AVID since then.

    at this point, the Nasdaq is under 3900 and AVID is
    at (ouch) $15 9/16. So, compared to Feb 28, the
    Nasdaq is well below what it was then, and AVID is
    slightly above what it was then. I think that's due to all
    those who drove AVID's price up while getting in before
    the upgrade (how'd they do that?). This all happened
    without any major news coming out about AVID and while we
    are all still waiting for the first quarter

    This is still a turnaround play (again), and I don't
    see major money getting in until there are real signs
    of a turnaround. That requires positive results
    (mostly increased revenues), and that hasn't happened
    I'm glad AVID's at 15 and change instead of 10 and
    change. I'm also hoping I get to see AVID at 45 again
    before I die, or give up and sell.

    AVID does seem to be tracking the Nasdaq for the last week or so, though.

    are a couple of charts to look

    It's pretty exaggerated, and I've hardly ever seen AVID track the Nasdaq this closely
    before, but it does seem to be happening now.

    The other noticeable trend is that when
    volume's up, AVID rises and when volume's down, AVID falls.

    I'm confused by the recent activity in
    after-hours on AVID stock. Could one of you more experienced
    traders let me know what's going on here?

    After a
    nice end-of-day runup today to 14 3/4 (yeah!), the bid
    and ask stand at 12 3/8 and 16! This sort of thing
    has been going on for the past 4 or 5 days, and I'm
    really curious about it. I think I even saw an
    after-hours _trade_ at 16 the other day.

    I realize
    it's been active and volatile lately, but that kind of
    bid/ask spread is just ludicrous.

    money in the market!

    That $60 is _after_ the 2-for-1 split. Looking at the
    chart, it looks like PG had bin above $120 for about six
    months when it split.

    You can get this every quarter in the investor
    relations section of Avid's web

    code #788737

    They say it's available starting
    at 8pm (I assume ET) tonight.

  • All,

    Looking at the recent upswing on no
    news, I've figured out a new investment

    In the past it often seems that if I buy a stock, it
    immediately goes down and if I sell one, it immediately goes
    up (nothing new to you, I'm sure).

    With the
    recent past in mind, I've decided that if I want one of
    my holdings to go up, I'm going to _consider_
    selling it...
