    Criticism -Misplaced

    CREE strayed from their stated strategy of vertical integration with the recent push into consumer lighting. Lacking scale and resources, they should have maintained focus exclusively on commercial lighting. Now they have two choices: either split up into a chip biz and a lighting systems biz, or abandon the consumer space entirely and re-double efforts in commercial lighting.

    This is fantastic news. HDR is the one remaining feature available exclusively on LCD TV's.

    @@@\Prior to this new announcement, we’d been led to believe that we wouldn’t be able to get our hands on an HDR-capable OLED TV from LG until later in the year, following a potential unveiling at the IFA technology show at the end of August. LG’s HDR revelation has a significant impact on the current high-end TV marketplace. Ahead of this latest information high-end consumers were faced with a pretty much straight choice between one of Samsung’s SUHD TVs with their new high-brightness, wide colour gamut, HDR-capable LCD screens, and LG’s EG9600/EG960 OLED TVs with their ground-breaking contrast performance, incredibly slim designs but no HDR support. Adding HDR makes LG’s OLED TVs potentially as attractive to forward-thinking early technology adopters as they already were to the sort of AV fans who’ve always picked plasma over LCD.

    Don't I know it... but I got to thinking about he name and I think a better one would be the Keurig Kryo in two versions... the basic Minus 77K and the advanced function Minus 273K haha.

    TCxx and TDyy codes do indeed specify routes and a bit more

    T= Trade
    C=Clean D=Dirty
    xx and yy refer to specific geographic routes and ship size (deadweight)

    Analyst target $115

    Atta girl! MIDD hit a new intra-day high today. She's quite a pretty one indeed That 115 target is well on the way to being made. FX may be less of a headwind in Q2.

  • Last week railroad companies presented at the Bank of America/Merrill Lynch Transportation Conference, and the stocks got promptly clobbered. This week airline firms are presenting at Wolfe Research Transportation Conference, and now they are getting a hart beatdown.

    The DJT index trend shows lower highs and lower lows, and a death cross appears close at hand. If I didn't know any better, I'd think that while all media focus is on the record-breaking highs in S&P500, DJI, and NASD, WS is sneaking around out back and working the DJT to trigger a market correction.

    My pencil is not sharp enough to draw such a fine line. But I do a trend of lower highs and lower lows developing. And now the death cross is looming large. Makes me wonder, with all the focus on S&P500 and DJI and NASD if in fact the DJT is the sleeping black swan that WS is seeking to awaken.

    Global cooling update

    Because I follow the coal industry (and even have some minor exposure to it via met coal and steel producer MTL), and although I removed coal from my global cooling portfolio some time ago , I may want to add it back again one day.

    It surely couldn't be a reaction to this news report that came out Friday. After all, you would think fewer mine permit approvals would drive up coal prices. I assume these rulings would affect primarily permitting of thermal coal mines.

    @@DENVER (AP) -- Beset by power plant closures, growing regulatory scrutiny and proposed changes in how they pay royalties, coal mines are facing a new obstacle — a review of how coal extracted and burned will impact the air and global warming.Under a series of rulings by U.S. judges in Denver over the last year, federal agencies that approve mining projects have been told to take into account coal's indirect environmental impact along with traditional concerns about mine dust and equipment emissions.The immediate effects of the rulings appear limited to a single mine in northwestern Colorado that could lose its permit if a new environmental review isn't completed within four months. But industry representatives fear the rulings, if allowed to stand, could set an example for other judges to follow and eventually threaten the mines that make up the backbone of an industry already facing uncertainty.

    I have no idea what they're thinking. How much cash will they get from this IPO? Could CREE maybe be looking at partnering with another firm to acquire Philips Lighting?
