    Beat by .10, beat on revenues

    I stand corrected... the resignation was announced a 1 1/2 years ago. In any case, all that matters to me is how the current CEO executes that plan the previous CEO put in motion, and his performance to date is okay.

    As far as non-gaap and gaap reporting, you are nuts. Maybe you can point out some large hi-tech firms that don't report this way? MSFT, CSCO, ORCL, AMAT, SNDK, (and probably a zillion others) sure do.

    I pity the fool who holds only a couple of stocks like this one hoping to 'strike it rich' instead of building up a well-diversified portfolio. Are you one of those fools?

    Are you trying to be funny? Practically all high tech companies (and many non high-tech ones) post non-gaap alongside gaap results. And so what if the CEO retired in 2013... that's 1-1/2 years ago.

    I don't care to read through your past trades. You didn't post the current one and that's all that matters now as far as I;m concerned, so let me know when you cover your short okay?

    Why didn't the price drop on ex div date?

    Because it dropped heading into ex-div date. Shareholders who didn't want to hold through it sold off their shares... kinda like a pre-emptive move I suppose

    NATO asserted the intrusion occurred so where are the photos of the convoy on Ukraine terrortory (before or after being damaged by Ukrainian forces)? You know the old saying... a picture is worth a thousand words.

  • blackoutbuzz blackoutbuzz Aug 15, 2014 8:12 PM Flag

    If one accepts your premise, then the logical conclusion is that no such convoy existed.

    Look under the Black Rock... I'm sure you'll find plenty of off-the-book funds lying (or is that lieing) under it. I use only my own hard-earned on-the-book funds for investing and trading and pay all taxes due.on profits, contrary to what the Loony thinks.

    ----satellite imagining---

    Indeed. NATO allies have the best imagining systems in the world.... they were able to detect and confirm that a Russian military convoy crossed the border into Ukraine under cover of darkness. Those are some mighty powerful Night Imagining Satellites they got there....

    You're an idiot. I went long this stock back in early May at ~13. I have not been impressed by any specific news out of this company since then, so I see no reason to cheer like you do. In fact, the dearth of any real news makes me sceptical of this firm's progress.... that's not me talking it down, it's reality. How about a big sales contract annoucement? That's what really matters here. I'll reserve any of my cheerleading for if/when real actual news hits. Put down your pom-poms and wait for a touchdown first... sheesh.

    Wow, an interview in Barron's where someone actually mentioned ENF.TO. The fellow sees dropdowns coming for ENF.TO.

    @@@@@Q: What else do you like in North America? A: The energy renaissance here in North America is something we believe strongly in. Enbridge ( ENB ) is a pipeline owner focused on distribution of crude oil and natural gas liquids here in the U.S. and Canada, and it has a few things going for it. First and foremost it has a $36 billion Canadian, or US$33 billion, pipeline of projects, of which $18 billion are going to come onboard over the next couple of years. So it has good visibility to grow earnings and dividends 10% to 12% over the next five years, which we like. What Enbridge could really do to enhance its growth -- and share price -- is accelerate the drop-downs of assets to two of its entities, Enbridge Income Fund in Canada ( ENF. Canada) and Enbridge Energy Partners ( EEP ) in the U.S. One indication that Enbridge will is that it restructured the IDRs, Incentive Distribution Rights, at EEP, which allowed the stock to rally. So if Enbridge drops down some of the assets to EEP, that will enhance the share price eventually of EEP, the master limited partnership, as well as the parent, Enbridge. And it can do the same with Enbridge Income Fund in Canada.

    ----You are clueless by saying the past actions of the ex-CEO, ex, CFO, and ex, Co-Founder have nothing to do with AZPN.----

    What exactly do they have to with AZPN NOW?

    Well, you sir, are a genius to have shorted right at the peaks. Too bad you didn't post those entries here at the time you made them.... it would lend a lot more credence to your claim. And if you did indeed enter the short above $47 over the 'last few months', I assume that would include at the peak back in Feb, so I'm a bit surprised you didn't cover on the drop to 37ish back in April... or did you and just did not post then either?

    Next time, please post both your entries and exits real-time... that's how you get people to believe you, not showing up out of the blue after a stock has dived ans saying you got short when it was hitting highs. Anyway, good luck to you.

    Under $45 is a good buy

    That's funny... I reduced my long position earlier today. I see no immediate catalysts to move the stock price up. I'm interested to see what the 45 strike put sellers will do with the ~1M shares that will be assigned to them today after close.

  • ~9600 contracts are ITM and set to be assigned. So it appears someone is going to get close to a million shares dumped into their lap. I wonder what they will do with those shares next week?

  • blackoutbuzz blackoutbuzz Aug 15, 2014 12:44 PM Flag

    Huh? It's not a double top since this time around the stock did not even come close to the last peak high of 83.38. What I do see though on the weekly chart is that the stock is hitting the 200 period SMA support line currently at 44.16. If it fails to hold that then it could easily head into the mid-30's.

  • blackoutbuzz blackoutbuzz Aug 15, 2014 12:37 PM Flag

    Who are all these short people trying to 'talk down' the stock? I don't see them anywhere. All I see is a couple of you characters here pumping DWCH incessantly. You are delusional.

    Treasuries Skyrocketing

    Not true according to Russia.

    @@@@@Russia has denied that its troops entered Ukrainian territory, saying that a column of armoured vehicles spotted on the border was a unit of guards patrolling the frontier. A day after the Guardian and Daily Telegraph reported seeing 23 Russian armoured personnel carriers, supported by fuel trucks and other military logistics vehicles, crossing into Ukrainian territory, the FSB said there was a detachment in the area of border guards set up to assure safety and “prevent the infiltration of armed people on the territory of the Russian federation”. But the security service stressed that the unit operated exclusively on Russian territory. “In this regard, information on crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border, a group of Russian soldiers is not true,” RIA Novosti quoted an official as saying.

    Ouch. Of course, it was expected but still... ouch. The successful approval, buildout, and start of RNWEF's JV is now more crucial than ever to the firm. Well unless USA retreats from the solar wars that got us into this mess... funny how an administration that supports and promotes renewable energy is screwing over workers at the USA poly-Si manufacturing plants.

    @@@@@China, the world’s biggest consumer of solar-grade polysilicon, will tighten up on imports of the material after solar manufacturers took advantage of a rule that allowed them to avoid duties. From September, it will suspend applications from solar companies to import the polysilicon under so-called “processing trade” rules, whereby material used in domestic manufacturing is exempt from import duties if the finished product -- in this case solar cells used in panels -- is then exported. The suspension is “mainly aimed at U.S. polysilicon,” said Wang Xiaoting, a Hong Kong-based analyst at Bloomberg New Energy Finance, given the high tariffs imposed on imports from that country. China in January listed anti-dumping charges of as much as 57 percent for imports from U.S. polysilicon makers including Hemlock Semiconductor Corp., REC Silicon ASA (REC) and SunEdison Inc. (SUNE)
