    stock is more like gamble.
    if you want a reason, you may blame the Chinese IPO
    ALIBABA GROUP HOLDING LTD (BABA) -NYSE
    92.61 Up 24.61(36.19%) , yesterday, they talked about IPO price $66-68.
    today IPO over 90.

    Perhaps, this IPO sucks all the money away from NASDAQ, all the money goes to

    ALIBABA GROUP HOLDING LTD (BABA) -NYSE

    92.61 Up 24.61(36.19%)

    this is a strange market. every time dow jones drops 200, 300, feel like sky was falling down. after a few days, it heads up again, the SPY keeps hitting new high. very emotion
    market.
    I also short some QQQ, wait to buy it back. this time, I am trying to buy on dip instead of
    waiting sky falling.
    what is your opinion about QQQ? how far will it go down by your opinion?

    Zacks sell rating is right

    No bad feeling about Zacks rating.
    It gave me the chance to sell $24, and bought back 22.5 yesterday AH.
    They are good to make wave sometimes.

    I don't believe most of stock analysts much.

    perhaps that why Zacks analysts assign a sell rating .

  • Glad that I listen to Zacks. Sold some before earning. CRUS really sell off.

    Zacks Rank: Cirrus Logic carries a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). We caution against stocks with Zacks Ranks #4 and 5 (Sell-rated stocks) going into the earnings announcement, especially when the company is seeing negative estimate revisions momentum

    Sell before CRUS free fall ???

    Well, Zack is totally right. Rating #4 sell.
    I am glad to listen to their advice.
    Sold some near $24, buy back $22.5 after hour.

    Should we beat others to sell first before the free fall???
    Sell before crus free fall ??

    Zacks Rank: Cirrus Logic carries a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). We caution against stocks with Zacks Ranks #4 and 5 (Sell-rated stocks) going into the earnings announcement, especially when the company is seeing negative estimate revisions momentum.

  • Cirrus Logic Inc. (CRUS) is set to report first-quarter fiscal 2015 results on Jul 23. Last quarter, the company posted a positive earnings surprise of 33.3%. Moreover, it is worth noting that Cirrus Logic has outperformed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all the four preceding quarters with an average positive surprise of 28.5%.

    Let us see how things are shaping up for this announcement.

    Growth Factors this Past Quarter

    We believe that the continued investments in the audio segment are expected to positively impact the company in the long run. Additionally, synergies from acquisitions and expansion in the LED market continue to drive growth.

    Most recently, Cirrus Logic agreed to buy Wolfson Microelectronics plc for nearly $467.0 million. This acquisition provides Cirrus Logic the platform to build its audio signal processing components. We believe that the acquisition will help Cirrus Logic to serve a broad customer base in the mass storage, industrial and audio markets.

    It is noteworthy that, Cirrus Logic is poised to benefit from Apple’s (AAPL) recent agreements with China Mobile (CHL) (the largest carrier in China), since Apple is its major customer. Cirrus Logic generates approximately 80.0% of its revenue from Apple. So there’s a good chance that Cirrus Logic will benefit similarly. Nonetheless, there is always a risk of losing an Apple design, which can impact the financial performance of the company.

    Moreover, we remain cautious about the company as the current global economic downturn might affect its business potential, going forward. Also, the company faces competition from the likes of Texas Instruments Inc. and STMicroelectronics, which remains a headwind.

    Earnings Whispers?

    Our proven model does not conclusively show that Cirrus Logic will beat earnings this quarter. That is because a stock needs to have both a positive Earnings ESP and a Zacks Rank #1, 2 or 3 for this to happen. That is not the case here as you will see below.
