gee steve so angry. Its really TOOBAD. I wish I had masters to pay my salary as I'm self employed. But Armh has made me SO MUCH MONEY since I bought my first 5000 shares at $SEVEN-I'm about to retire anyway. I've lived thru so many downgrades and made SO MUCH MONEY buying MORE ARMH shares because of them-I look forward to them.
Sorry you are so angry-maybe the stock market isn't for you-try BINGO.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
as usual i took the opportunity to buy more at the usual 15% discount these phony downgrades always give.
my price $46.90 (Long since $7-and still playing with the house's money after trading around the core and taking significant profits)
this guy has wasted a lot of space on the IHUB board of titxf pumping his highly inferior unknown trxc pos.
ignore him. his argument is shredded over there.
please be my guest and short it-pleez, spend lots of your money doing it please please cuz i've seen idiots like you short it all the way up from where i bought it at $7. and please be sure to post us when you're homeless.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
HOUSTON, Dec 27 Northern Tier Energy LP shut down a crude distillation unit (CDU) on Friday for unplanned work, a union representative said during a conference call about contract negotiations with the company.
Chris Riley, the business agent for Teamsters Local 120, which represents workers at the 89,500-barrel-per-day (bpd) plant in St. Paul, Minnesota, said a maintenance problem prompted the shutdown of the larger of two crude units for six to seven days.
The unit shutdown at Northern Tier's only refinery came as a Dec. 31 contract expiration loomed. The union was considering a strike if they can't reach an agreement on a new contract with the company.
The larger crude unit was damaged by fire in September and restarted in mid-October after three weeks of repairs. During that time, the refinery ran at reduced rates.
With the downtime, the average throughput was 81,000 bpd during the third quarter. Executives told analysts on the company's third-quarter earnings call in November that Northern Tier expected throughput to reach 80,000 to 85,000 bpd in the fourth quarter.
On Friday Northern Tier spokeswoman Christine Carcinelli declined to comment on both the CDU shutdown and the status of contract talks.Riley said negotiations were scheduled for Friday, Monday and Tuesday. On Dec. 17, the union voted to authorize a strike if it was deemed warranted.
"We remain hopeful that an agreement can be reached, but are prepared to take those actions necessary to protect our members," he said.He said the union has not heard whether the company had hired replacement workers to run the plant in the event of a strike. Instead, he said Northern Tier planned to use office workers and other staff that had undergone some training, "but they do not have the experience our workers do."
Riley said the company's proposals include cutting jobs, eliminating seniority and reducing wages and some classifications by up to 40 percent.
"Management's decision to drive experienced workers off the job and gut hard-fought standards in our industry puts the lives of our members and our neighbors at risk," said Joe Riley, who has worked at the refinery for more than 30 years. "We won't stand for it."
stupid texans. They'll blow it. MN workers aren't patsies and won't rollover on this. I sold on the news. will sit on the sidelines. If it is settled volatility in the oil markets will give me a buy in price eventually.
The smoking gun for this dramatic shift was a post by Facebook on the Hip Hop Virtual Machine blog on Thursday that indicated the team is implementing ARM processor support in its translation engine, which turns Facebook's PHP code into 64-bit x86 instructions to execute on compute nodes. The HHVM is Facebook's fundamental unit for running its mammoth PHP-based social network.
"It's also been crucial in our efforts to get hhvm running on ARM processors by isolating and reducing the amount of architecture-specific code we need to reimplement," Facebook wrote. "Watch for an upcoming post devoted to our ARM port for more details!"
nope. its been that high since i bought in at $7
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Analyst Christopher Rolland explains the rating: "ARM's products offer a unique value proposition allowing hundreds of customers, through the payment of license fees and royalties, access to power-efficient processor architecture and IP. Therefore, the "ARM collective" essentially shares in the development costs of the technology, allowing niche semiconductor design firms to compete in markets previously influenced by insurmountable development costs and economies of scale. The business model, along with the low-power benefits of the ARM architecture, has been transformational in the rise of the fabless semiconductor model, which we believe poses a disruptive threat to today's largest semiconductor incumbents. Indeed, the industry has found a new standard, and ARM should benefit through outsized growth in license and royalty revenues over the next decade. Overall, we believe ARM has priced its technology inexpensively, effectively accelerating ecosystem growth and driving critical mass. In addition to higher volumes, as the complexity of systems on a chip (SoCs) naturally grows, ARM should successfully extract a higher royalty rate by providing next-generation technologies that quickly become the new table stakes for the industry (64-bit, big.LITTLE, and others). We are initiating coverage of ARMH with an Outperform rating and a $62 price target, or 37x (adjusted for cash) our 2015E EPS, lofty but appropriate in our view given the high quality and expected growth in earnings."
Qualcomm Inc said on Monday it will make smartphone chips with 64-bit features typically found in personal computers, following Apple Inc and opening the way to more efficient mobile gadgets.
Qualcomm said its new Snapdragon 410 component will also include 4G cellphone connectivity technology and be aimed at the fast-growing Chinese market, where it should start appearing in low-cost smartphones in the second half of 2014.
Along with 4G, 64-bit technology will become standard across Qualcomm's products, said Michelle Leyden Li, a Qualcomm senior director in charge of marketing its Snapdragon line.
Led by Apple's iPhones, the smartphone industry's evolution toward 64-bit chips reduces the gap between low-power mobile processors and punchier chips used in laptops, desktop PCs and servers.
Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has also said it plans to use 64-bit processors in its smartphones.
Processors with 64-bit features can take advantage of more memory than 32-bit processors now found in most mobile devices, potentially letting them work faster and more efficiently.
Current smartphones don't have enough memory to give 64-bit processors an advantage of 32-bit chips, but future phones probably will include enough memory to give the 64-bit processors a performance boost.
Taking advantage of 64-bit processors also requires changes to software originally designed for 32-bit processors.
"It's a little bit chicken and the egg," Leyden Li said. "We see this transition happening and we want to be there to help enable the ecosystem."
In September, Apple unveiled its first iPhone made with a 64-bit processor, leading to speculation the company plans to merge its iOS mobile platform with the operating system used for its Mac laptop and desktop personal computers. Future Macs could be built with the same line of chips Apple that uses in its iPhones and iPads.
Intel Corp already includes 64-bit features in its mobile chips but the compan
