You must mean MSFT. MSFT announced Massive Layoffs last week. But the stock didn't go down, oddly.
Turns out Tim Cook knows how to run a business profitably. Only way BOZOS as AMZN knows how to get business, is by cutting prices, till he's got no profits and is out of business.
When I was a little kid, I once saw BEZOS the CLOWN live, with his push on red round nose, and Orange Hair and white Make-up. For people born later BOZO THE CLOWN you may not know, he used to be on TV. You may know RONALD McDONALD from McDonalds commercials. Amazon's Pres. with its growing losses and desperate business strategy of "lowest prices" and "the more I sell the more money I lose" we shall now rename him BOZOS instead of BEZOS, in honor of of BOZO THE CLOWN, that used to be on TV.
Amazon's stupidity of making and selling products at almost cost, which means losing money after overhead, is eating into the remaining $5 billion of total Book Value Net Worth "Bozos" has on his balance sheet (that's total of $5 billion total positive Cash-Flow BOZOS has been able to make since going public in 1996... not one quarter's positive cash flow, but all he's made in 80 quarters since 1996).
AMZN could use "PIPE Investment" Technique. Private Investment in Public Equity, to shore up its Capital Base. It could work like this: Offer $50 billion in 5 year Bonds paying 10% interest, that if not paid, is added on balloon payments to the Loan. Then if Amazon can not pay the interest, the BondHolder could convert the $50 Billion into new Amazon Shares at $50 a share.
Remember in 2013, when AAPL stock was down a lot, he was calling Tim Cook a J., blaming Apple's stock-price tumble in summer of 2013 on Js, and constantly speaking about need to ReOpen Auschwitz Ovens.... etc? Where is he now that Apple Stock's UP? If it was Tim Cook the Js fault last year that AAPL was down, how come he's not Applauding him and the Js now that AAPL stock price is UP??
don't worry about it. Read what he said: GET EDUCATED / FOLLOW MY LEAD. An educated person looks for facts, not hype. All he's given is sales pitches.
alright, we already had slight Recession first half this year of 2014, but Apple picked up Earnings and sales.
Remember I posted a few weeks ago with AAPL about $93 "I'm Baaaaack"... and "I Never Left". Just put Apple stock on IGNORE for 3/4s a year after it was way down in 2013. LONG-TERM APPLE WAS GOOD, HAD MORE SECURE AND EASIER TO USE PHONE THAN ANDROID SECURITY RISK PHONES.
may not be enough Shorts in this stock to CHASE it. FUNDAMENTALS usually matter more... and this company Missed Earnings, plus is LOSING to GOOGL / Samsung (on low end) and to AAPL on the high end. EOS (end of story)
MSFT is now in the Red, down following big Earnings Miss. And look at the recent "Bubble Chart" it was PUMPED BEFORE EARNINGS. Big Trading Desks now BAILING OUT
BBBbbbut the ANALyst Upgraded MSFT stock following its BIG EARNINGS MISS.
That's so its TRADING DESK can get out of its MSFT Stock in Inventory, at a Profit.... dumping on you poor Retail little investors.
You may be reading too much into, or conjuring up too much, from IPAD Sales having pulled back. IPAD sales may have pulled back because PHABLET larger phones Samsung makes are growing faster (in third world where people can't both afford a smartphone and tablet), and Apple will soon make are taking some of the IPAD Marketshare. Also saying Android Tablets don't work well, is the reason for LOW INTERNET USAGE BY ANDROID TABLETS may not be the main reason. Main reason for low internet shopping even on Amazon by Android Tablets, is Android users have a lot lower Socio-Economics than Apple Owners. Android buyers in short make a lot less income typically, so of course they lack money to do bigtime online shopping. This all may not bode well for MSFT. It all may mean little for Msft.
Have you seen the Tech Chart of MSFT lately? Gee, what changed to cause the recent pop up $5 this past month? a. There must have been Good Earnings, right? Wrong, MSFT missed by a lot, $0.55 a share vs. $0.60 expected earns.
b. MSFT must finally be making headway into the Mobile Smartphone and Tablets markets? WRONG its losing bucket-load-billions$ on the NOK acquisition, with no end in sight (CEO says they hope to 'break-even' on NOK Division in 2 years.
c. They claim that PE Expansion to nose-bleed levels (for MSFT) now 17 PE, is ok given MSFT grew revenues even as Earns. went down..., but Revs. Growth is from NOK ACQUISTION, revenues worth nothing but losses.
The big question is, if Microsoft Nokia sells a new model lower cost LUMIA Smartphone for $120 (the just announced), and LOSES $140 per phone sold. If they can possibly double Lumia Phone Sales, will their losses from NOK double, or more likely only go up 50%?
No one could dial up and use IBM 360 Mainframe computers via phone lines and even portable modems one put the phone into 40 years ago. Nothing new here except fiber optics and miniaturization of lasers into laser-diodes. "Cloud Computing" is "Back to the future". Back when computers were too big and expensive, that's how people were able to use computers, a Terminal connected by phone lines or Cable to a far off computer in the Cloud. I had a co. made dial-up access authentication security modems. You could use the Main or Cloud Computer from across the country if you had the right access code.
]The problem with Cloud Computing, is your data's now on some other company's device... your personal details and personal ideas and work, is 'out there'. Its a lot worse than ages ago, because the Internet is Less Secure, and there's no security sending your work and financial info. over internet, than years ago over a dial-back access authentication modem.
Its Indian CEO, and that its hiring more and more cheaper Indian Programmers, and no longer hiring Americans, unless they agree to have their wages squeezed down to India Size.
