    By the way: off topic. I was getting these obnoxious Smarter Shopper ads on my Chrome browser that were driving me crazy. I googled around to find some advice and one guy said he got the problem by installing the Facebook Dislike button on his Chrome. I set up the Dislike button too. I disabled it, and now those horrible ads are gone. Those virus guys have a lot of nerve. Some day some guy who just lost his job browsing on his computer is going to blow his stack, find out who's responsible for those ads, and hunt the culprit down.

    I made a few bucks on JDSU shares I got at $2.30 and sold at 4 or 5. Shoud have hung on longer. Now I am wondering whether to buy some again. Listened to their conf call. The guy could use some public speaking training. But what I care about is the business, not the oratory. Problem is, there are too many acronyms of stuff I am not familiar with, you have to know the lingo in order to glean much out of the conf call. I think that is too much homework for me, so I think I'll try to find some articles on Motley Fool or Seeking Alpha or something and try to get some second hand opinions that may help me understand this business a little more. (When the stock was $2.30, you didn't need to understand the company to know it was a screaming buy)

  • 1). It is a good double whammy. Great business situation, and excellent balance sheet.
    2). When it goes up, you don't need to feel too itchy about selling because you know it is still way undervalued based on any reasonable valuation criteria.

    I am aiming for KLIC to get to the $30-50 range within the next 2 or 3 years. The dilemma is, do you hold on the way up and see a stock become a lot bigger portion of your portfolio, in which case you are less diversified, or do you sell off a little as it goes up, thus not having as many eggs in one basket, but also reducing your profit it if does go way up like you expect it to.

    One thing I like about KLIC. They are the dominant player in their market but they don't appear to be inclined to rest on their laurels, they are aggressively working on new products to maintain their supremacy. And there do not appear to be any ambitious little companies out there who are in any position to challenge them.

    I am inclined to get into this stock. The only thing I worry about is that when a stock drops this much, the ambulance chasers often start filing anti-shareholder lawsuits.

    UCTT downgraded from buy high to sell low by Roth Capital.

  • Wow, not the usual mamby pamby corporate conference call. Some tough questions related to their cash hoard.

    I think shareholders will probably give them quite a bit of slack until it is more clear where things are headed in advanced packaging and where KLIC will fit into that.

    And, although I too wonder about the big cash hoard, I'd still rather that be the situation than for them to do imprudent acquisitions. They seem to be applying heavy scrutiny to any prospective acquisitions, and that is a good thing.
