I agree CREE has to change their strategy, but if they simply divest LED fab/chip division to become a lighting manufacturer then they still face strong deep-pocketed challengers. Maybe the best way out of this mess is to merge with a company like AYI and later sell the LED fabs to Osram or Lumileds.
Maybe, but the options open interest in this underlying is quite low... seems to me the big boys would be much more active there if this was options-related.
What's your take on this note about slowing TLCV growth?
@@@@@Aspen Technology (NASDAQ:AZPN) shares tumbled in morning trading in the stock market today, a day after the business management software provider posted fiscal Q4 earnings that showed decelerating growth in a key metric the company calls total license contract value. Otherwise, the results for the quarter ended June 30 easily beat Wall Street views, and analysts were upbeat. "The only concern could be (the) slight deceleration in TLCV," Pacific Crest Securities analyst Brendan Barnicle wrote in a research report, but he added the TLCV "exceeded expectations."
I think those machine algos trading AZPN apparently don't like the gap-up from back on 4/29 and tried to fill it but only managed to push it down to a support level at 40.82. If it bounces off that and recovers to close above the gap-up lower bound at 41.18 we should be in the clear.
Still, I am surprised that the traders chose algo#1 (crash it) instead of algo#2 (pop it) in view of the results and guidance... I can only assume this trade program ran to cover short positions. Ahhhh #$%$ em I'm buying more.
I only recently started a long-term investment in DEO. I wanted more exposure to consumer sector and I see alcohol as a slow steady growth market. The only reason I would sell my holdings now is if competition became a serious threat, if laws that affect consumption changed, or a prolonged worldwide recession re-developed. I don't see any of these on the horizon.,
@@@@@As lagers continue to gain favor among beer drinkers in the U.S., Guinness Master Brewers in Dublin have collaborated with brewing experts in the U.S. to create a one-of-a-kind taste in American Lagers. Guinness® Blonde™ American Lager is a complex, flavorful lager with a floral, hoppy aroma that is a combination of Mosaic™, Willamette and Mount Hood hops. Combining these American ingredients with the world famous 125-year-old Guinness yeast intertwines two brewing traditions – Guinness and American.
The new government will maintain the nickel ore export ban... 2015 will be very interesting as demand outstrips supply.
@@@@@Indonesia Holding Firm on Ore Ban Amid More Investments By Yoga Rusmana, Eko Listiyorini and Phoebe Sedgman Aug 13, 2014 8:07 AM ET /Bloomberg A crushing conveyor transports ore at a gold and silver mine North Sumatra province, Indonesia’s ban on ore exports will remain in place under the next government as the curbs spur as much as $18 billion in investment in processing plants by 2017, said the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry. “It’s important to maintain the policy,” Sukhyar said on Aug. 11 in Jakarta. “Investors have made it clear to the government that they don’t want any change in policy because it could damage all their investments and they would lose trust.” “When the ban was first brought in, people were a bit skeptical that it possibly wouldn’t last that long,” James Glenn, an economist at National Australia Bank Ltd., said from Melbourne today. “It’s definitely become clear that this is something that’s going to be in place for a while to come.” A jump to $25,000 is plausible, according to Stephen Briggs, a metal strategist at BNP Paribas in London, whose outlook was conditional on the maintenance of the ban. Nickel was listed by Societe Generale SA among its top picks for this half as the curb was seen moving the market to shortages.
Well maybe this time... great results this latest quarter... beat on earnings and revenues.... AGAIN.
@@@@@Aspen Tech beats by $0.10, beats on revs (AZPN) : Reports Q4 (Jun) earnings of $0.31 per share, excluding non-recurring items, $0.10 better than the Capital IQ Consensus Estimate of $0.21; revenues rose 21.8% year/year to $101.5 mln vs the $96.77 mln consensus.
How much did INTC spend on SW from DWCH this year?
Maybe they figured out that all this data visualization sw is crapola.
That's no way to talk about your glorious Alma Mater the USofA now is it? You're fortunate they don't throw traitors in jail (well at least those they can't catch, anyway ha). Maybe you'd feel better defecting to Canada.
Who cares... their website reports have everthing you need. Overall results okay but poor guidance. The only bright spot I see is that lighting products division grew nicely in Q4 over Q3.
Revs 208160 vs 176691
Gross Profit 60573 vs 48487
Gross Margin 29.1 vs 27.4
Bring it on.... bought some far OTM protective puts in case management screws up yet again on earnings or more likely issues a mediocre forecast.
What's with the big pullback... even the lowball $12B estimate values this at ~103. I do see a lot of open interest in the Aug expiry options though... maybe it's related to that. Guess we'll know for sure in a few days.
What an idiotic comment to make. Was Belushi not his friend? Is Belushi not recognized as a great comedian, just like Robin was? Both were addicts... so what? I'll bet if you asked Robin who he was closer to and admired more - John or Christopher - he'd say John hands down..
What's the matter stupidperson? Are drugs illegal in Heaven? Did John Belushi go to Hell? Will Robin join him in Hell since he committed suicide? Is there no Heaven or Hell? Inquiring minds want to know.
