They named 4 companies including MU, SK Hynix (MU Competitor) Western Gig.
Won't ne MU since MU signed some kind of partnership with Seagate just 4 weeks ago.
Bob, I think the setup started on Friday afternoon, with the run up to 32.03 after 12:30 to take out all the PUTS at 32 and 31.50, (I had 40 myself which expired), they didn't want to let go of their shares since they were already Long/Short. They just keep shorting as it goes up for the ultimate Payday which was today--Cover all the Older Shorts and drive it down hard early, then cover all, slowly, and buy again long. Like a well oiled clock. Seen this before, but only in big caps with volume.
Well, that's the stuff Cramer referred to many times of How to Use Writers to Publish a Story and pounce on it. Claimed he did it frequently as a Hedge Fund Manager. Still being done apparently, any investigator would be way too ignorant to know that AAPL doesn't permit Suppliers to reveal contracts. So nothing will ever happen to these kinds of shenanigans.
You're right on that. Seems the rumor came from some 3rd party news article and not Samsung. I doubt that Samsung would let something like that leak down the pipe and risk a contract. All very fishy, if its true though, I would suspect AAPL would be all over Samsung on this.
Micron gains after analyst day, upgrade • 11:32 AM
Eric Jhonsa, SA News Editor
•Macquarie has upgraded Micron (MU +2.2%) to Outperform following the memory giant's Friday analyst day. RBC and Jefferies have respectively hiked their targets to $44 and $45.
•Macquarie believes annual EPS of $6 and free cash flow of $5B is possible, and estimates Micron's 2016 free cash flow yield is 13%. Jefferies is upbeat about Micron's tech progress and the margin boost provided by the new Inotera deal.
•Wedbush ($40 target) notes Micron forecasts only 25% DRAM bit supply growth going forward (down from the 33% CAGR seen from 2010-2014), and that (in spite of recent NAND price pressure) it expects NAND supply to be "constrained over the near to long term given diverse end-market demand drivers and complicated 3D transitions." 38% NAND bit supply growth is expected.
•SA author Electric Phred notes Micron suggested its 3D NAND offerings will give it a cost advantage, and thinks Micron and Samsung could have a 3D NAND duopoly.
Is for Management in the C Suite to Realize they aren't Doing The Right Thing For Customers (and for potential new ones) is to admit it and do something about it. The CEO's speech was Pathetic on the CC. The problem won't work its way out over time as he suggests --it will just get worse till they FIX THE PROBLEM.
1ST..Kill the 2.0 Product ASAP and come out with the 3.0 (not a 2.1) This 3.0 MUST HAVE ALL THE FEATURES OF THE ORIGINAL VUE and the 2.0.
2ND..Offer an exchange program for every 2.0 Unit Sold at either free, or a minimal upgrade fee, and do it quickly. This is not something to ponder for months, the Accounting Dept. ought to be able to forecast the $$$$ Impact of doing it vs. not doing this.
3RD..Admit you made a Mistake, and do some real Damage Control. Up to now Keurig's response is Pathetic again. The Company needs to look at how other's have stumbled and quickly recovered by admitting they were wrong.
4TH..If Keurig wants to get back on track, take the HIT quickly before the Image is completely Ruined. Time is Not on your side as the CEO said on the CC. He should be removed for such a stupid statement.
I was going to buy a 2.0 until I learned of All The Issues. Now I have a choice...of Not buying a Keurig at all, or buying a Competitive model. If they announce a 3.0 as I suggested above, I might wait, but I will never buy the 2.0.
There are tons of fake products on Ebay. I bought them for their gigantic price differential. Men's Ties that Rtail in the US under The Absolute best Brand names that are $150, for only 4.99, and there was no difference in the material, its the label that costs. I've bought at least 50 for my own personal use.
in March when the Lock Up occurs. BABA could move Up 5-8 points by then, dragging Pulling YHOO Up too. BABA would only be seeing around 80 million shares coming in now that YHOO's shares will all be going into the SPINCO, the MM's can easily handle that, its smaller than the Last one was.
