    4th Quarter Results

    by drmicrocaps Dec 4, 2014 11:36 PM cleardrop Dec 8, 2014 6:31 PM Flag

    Good post....
    Also like how the debt obligations are being paid off..
    Wonder if Zacks still thinks this is a sell? (We are now back above the "pre-zack price")
    Can you tell I'm annoyed with the short term mind set that messes up the true benefits of steady, long-term growth and profits?.... I know--I need a reality check.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    "Vitesse will host one-on-one meetings with investors at The Benchmark Company Micro Cap Discovery Conference at The Palmer House Hilton in Chicago on December 11, 2014. "

    Would any Company in their right mind have a one-on-one investor meeting right after disclosing their 4th Quarter earnings if they didn't think there would be excitement, new interest, and confidence?

    Okay... I will adjust my (hopeful) prediction: $6.00 By late December.

    $6.00 by November

    Acer Reports Narrow Third-Quarter Profit on Cost Cuts
    By Eva Dou
    TAIPEI--Taiwanese personal-computer maker Acer Inc. reported a narrow profit for a third consecutive quarter after cost cuts, though revenue continued to fall as the global market for personal computers contracts.
    Acer, the world's fourth-largest PC maker by shipments, has steadied its business this year with a new management team after three years of losses. The company was hit particularly hard as consumers shifted to mobile devices.

    Five weeks later, we are right back where we were. --Zacks may have contributed to the temporary sell-off, but it did NOT change the true value of this company. It is disappointing that today's market can be quickly shifted by the UN-necessary, short term-related messages of many financial "advisors" (It only benefits the day traders, not the longs like me). Plus, Zacks just delayed the inevitable: Community sentiment on Vitesse in the long term will be overall higher, and price will rise.... How likely will Vitesse be in a poorer financial condition than in Q3? How likely will it be in a richer financial condition? The factors are lining up... and remember several years ago at the reverse split the Board considered $5.00 to be fair value--- that was years ago. Vitesse is much more stable than years ago.. We are so undervalued now.. We should be well above $5 bucks!

    Yeah, I'm sick too--but I'm not working for financial advising Co. like you are, apparantly...

    When VTSS gives the news... well,.... shall see...

    From Jeff Macke, Yahoo Finance Reporter (Today, 10-9-14):

    "The fear may be overblown but this time of year traders tend to sell first and ask questions later.
    So what should you do? Probably nothing. If you’re like most investors you’re not looking at your portfolio more than once a month unless or until you see bold headlines about stocks plunging. That can make the prospect of opening up those statements pretty daunting.

    The truth is trying to time the market is always a sucker’s game and that’s especially true during volatile times. Days like this aren’t a good time to radically change your long-term strategy.

    Professional traders would love to see you panic into dumping some quality blue chips. Don’t be that person. Take a long-term view and if you’re in doubt make an appointment to meet with your financial planner."

    Vitesse: Think Long Term, and Hold....(or BUY)

  • by cleardrop Sep 30, 2014 6:34 PM Flag

    Zack's RSI (last week) = 73
    Wilder's RSI (on Market Edge two days ago)=61
    TD Ameritrade RSI on Advanced graph( today)= 14

    See any discrepancy?
    RSI is not my biggest tool.

    I don't advise any short terms on Vitesse. Go long.... HOLD....
    This stock is undervalued..... Time will tell.

    Just noticed that Market Edge and Jaywalk Consensus have both given Vitesse an upgrade.

    I see more and more the case when a financial opinion such as the latest from Zacks is not an accurate basis for an investment. I can point out almost half of the opinions I have heard or read from experts end up not being helpful at all! Example: After I bought facebook at $40, it plummetted to $25. Within 2 weeks, an opinion said it would drop even further. DID drop... a few more dollars.... BUT LONG term, t went up. (mid $60 now!) I wish I had NOT listened to that short term opinion-- I sold & LOST MONEY!! That's just one example of many opinions based on the SHORT term, not the long term. If Zacks is giving short term advice by saying "definitely could be trouble on the horizon," based upon short term factors, I ask, How helpful is this?

    Compare to Vitesse's view, pulled from their financial statement:
    "Because our products are highly complex, it takes our customers 12 to 36 months to go from sample availability to first customer shipment as customers do the necessary development work to complete and qualify their systems in the network. Since it typically takes an additional 12 to 24 months to ramp into full production, we believe design wins represent a good leading indicator of potential future revenues. We model how our customers will ramp from design win to production based on a number of factors, including customer forecast, market segment, type of product, and historical results.
    In 2013, we introduced the third-generation of both our switch engine and PHY products. These new products allowed us to significantly increase our served markets in Carrier, Enterprise and IoT networking. We have become the clear choice for meeting our customers’ needs for service delivery, synchronization, security, and software."
    Vitesse is not short, but LONG TERM. By late 2014 through 2015 we will see the revenue flow from the design wins.. Zacks, you are not helping me at all, and I wonder if you're truly helping other long term investors.
