From that list, we can easily eliminate HP and Hitachi, as they don't make phones. Since Samsung makes its own chips and WATT is working with TSM, we can cross it off the list, leaving only Apple and Microsoft. In reality, though, Microsoft is an also-ran in the mobile phone market and rumored to be exiting it. So we're left with one company. Of course, the identity will remain a mystery, as AAPL's notorious about insisting on secrecy with partners and employees
Forward PE is 70.. and growth is dead. Mgmt expects 1.00 loss in q1. They have no other relevant REAL news about situation improving. They have almost zero competition in burritos and are stumbling.. how will they compete in burgers. Expect big drop after earnings
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Scientists in Brazil have uncovered a new brain disorder associated with Zika infections in adults: an autoimmune syndrome called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, or ADEM, that attacks the brain and spinal cord.
Whisper chip is ready.. expecting voice to replace touch. New Battery Technology almost ready. Google and Raytheon 20% customers. High probability this company is bought as wearables use starts to climb. Easy pickup for someone like Intel :) at these levels

The global deal reached at the Paris climate conference of December 2015 could come into force two years ahead of schedule, according to comments Monday by Christiana Figueres, the United Nations' climate chief.
The agreement was originally intended to swing into action in 2020, but this requires only that it be signed and ratified by 55 countries representing 55 percent of the world's total emissions. That target appears likely to be reached well in advance of the original deadline.
A huge step in that direction is to take place on April 22, when at least 130 countries are expected to come together in New York and sign the agreement, shattering the current record held by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, signed Dec. 10, 1982 by 119 countries.
But signing and ratifying the paperwork is just the first step, albeit a vital one, and it is what comes next, the actions taken to implement the agreement’s targets, that will hold the power to catalyze substantial change.
"We are two minutes to midnight on climate change. If you ask me, the Paris agreement is 10 years too late," said Ms. Figueres, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The deal reached in Paris set a target of keeping global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels, and in order to achieve that, said Figueres, the global community is going to have to make a gargantuan effort to switch to clean energy and low-carbon infrastructure.
Figueres likened the effort required to achieve this, according to Reuters, to the mammoth undertaking of reconstruction following the devastation of World War II
In the next few weeks, the Brazilian Health Ministry is expected to give the green light for Oxitec to begin supplying the insects across the country. The WHO is also broadly in favour of the new technology.
Hadyn Parry, Chief Executive of Oxitec, said: “I think a role out of GM mosquitoes could stop this very quickly indeed.
They will present the technology this week during the world's largest industrial trade fair, Hannover Messe (April 25-29), in Hanover, Germany. Another Google article on it
more unfortunate is not having any long shares :)
In addition, Apple has filed several patents for wireless charging, the most recent coming in November, according to Patently Apple, a website that tracks Apple patents. The latest patent would allow for automatic alignment between a power-transmitting inductor (the charger) and a power-receiving inductor (the phone), so that no power is lost during transfer.
No one in their right mind would open a new restaurant in this climate. Where will growth come from? See you at 200.00 soon.
