This stock is like clockwork. You could buy at this level and be just fine. It may drop a bit more. But it will absolutely blow by this level in the not too distant future. More shorts have been burned by NFLX than heretics during the Inquisition.
No it's not. It's based on BSD, which itself is based on Unix. Still, being "based on Unix" is not the same as BEING Unix. It's its own OS.

They want to play in cloud services, but they're bad at it.
They want to play in the business tech consulting realm, but they're notoriously bad at that too.
IBM's issue it it's become too slow, bureaucratic, and inefficient. Cutting labor costs by offshoring won't help it. The company needs a fundamental culture change, which won't happen without flushing upper management.

Aside from the fact that they've fulfilled all prior promises, if only a bit late sometimes. And the fact that they have a viable and successful product.
Perhaps, but Apple is run by dumb clods who don't know how to use that cash. I say this as an AAPL shareholder. They're a good company but they are ages from figuring out the streaming market properly. As long as they continue to try to lock people into their ecosystem it will continue to fail.
Actually, it's pretty awesome. Much better than the last season of House of Cards and much better than anything else on at the moment for that matter.
Do a google search for EIG web host issues and you'll see pages and pages of complaints and blog posts about what to do should you have the misfortune of your host being acquired by them. Everything they touch goes to hell. Most recent victim is Arvixe, a once great web hosting company that EIG bought last year and is now migrating to their server farm. Everything is breaking. Savvy developers lookup the list of EIG-owned hosts in order to avoid them.
