I always get a kick out of people that are such devout lapdogs of the Democrats when they defend something the Democrats did even after the Democrats admit it was a mistake.
It must be true, after all they wouldn't use "fact" in Politifact if it weren't. Just as we all know anything you read on the internet is reliable information.
"Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent to lie about Obamacare."
And that only counts what the Democrats have spent, ba da bing.
If most Americans don't care about Benghazi then why don't you shut up about it?
Put a little pizazz in this company by buying the technology leader in fiber optic transmission networks. You could offer $15 per share, although that might run the risk of a bidding war. I think an offer of $18 per share would seal the deal.
With its size and strong balance sheet and low stock price, CSCO seems like a very low risk investment to me. I'm buying more. I believe the upside is that the clout their incumbency provides them serves as a platform to be what they aspire to be, the leading IT company. The more pessimistic scenario is that they languish as a no-growth business. If the latter is the case, then I expect over the next several years their stock will be relatively flat.
It seems to me that the risk on this stock is low and the reward potential is moderate. That seems like a good bet to me.
Nagin's woes are not exactly good news for conservatives. Nagin was the moderate who took over a city previously run by left wing wackos. It is sad to see that the guy was corrupt.
I liked the comment that was something along the lines of: "large multinational vendors saddled with antiquated products are increasingly struggling to compete in this business"
Sorry it's not verbatim, went by too quick to memorize it.
When he said that I was thinking, gee, I wonder who he's talking about ... Sort of audacious when those guys just won a contract from a tier 1, but I agree with his strategy of giving them a poke in the eye.
He's a master of public relations. That's not a criticism, either. While I believe a company's valuation and business prospects are the most critical things to success, it's better to be good at PR than to not be. My other biggest tech stock is KLIC. Their guy, Bruno, who does their presentations, is uninspiring, to put it mildly.
Showing a good quarterly should also help a little with marketing. It provides a business validation to a prospective customer that INFN is indeed an up-and-comer thanks to its leading edge technology.
1). This is a cyclical business
2). What KLIC makes is an essential part of the semiconductor manufacturing process
3). KLIC has dominant market share
Put those all together and the fact that they have a balance sheet built like a tank, and you can only reach one conclusion, and that is that long-term, KLIC will do extremely well.
I'm always impressed that people are willing to make predictions where they are proved wrong within hours.
A VZ win would have been a good marketing tool, but not winning it shouldn't hurt INFN's marketing much. Any customer that starts considering ALU will only do it because they figure maybe we too can get some stuff at fire sale prices. But ALU probably has the opposite thought, they will be thinking, hey now that we have the clout of being a VZ customer that ought to lure in new customers where we can actually charge enough to make a profit.
