For the longest time while investing this stock on that remarkable rise, I often quoted fire as being a primary concern of mine where I am normally risk adverse.
And... Of course, there were many of those, as is always the case, where people were so quick to dismiss and criticize whenever a true reality check on the risks going forward are cited, where as usual, the nutty overly optimistic would critcize and cajole to no end. Its as if they believe nothing could happen but the stock will reCh the sky, and nothing could stop it.
Interesting we see a fire where the roof is burned up at zmesa today. Just imagine if all those furnaces were still powered up. What a high powered mess that would be, and even with the smallest fire, all furnaces would have been shut down and sapphire, while cooling due to loss of power, would have been wasted as they would not have met the Apple boule production reauirements.
It's your money people, but, zi would keep an open mind to all possibilities.
Already, I see old names dismissing the risks in other stocks zi love, like Sun Edison.
I hate to see people go stupid and flush their hard earned money fown the drain.
Amazing how everyone is so smart they can do that.
I thought it was $8B. But anyway, I would not put it that way, where we could say it "will" catch up.
I usually imply it "may" catch up. There is huge risk here.
Bankruptcy remains a possibility, but not necessarily a probability. Its a huge burden.
Only time will tell if the mouse is able to outrun the cat.
The race is still on....
Profit is not a part of the game plan for now or in the near future.
This is a company about GROWTH.
They are very, very sucessful about that.
If you want profit, you should look elsewhere.
For now its borrow, borrow, borrow, and spend, spend, spend.
Try that with your home mortgage and see how manageable that is, and for how long.
Ha! And there you go again. Downplaying the debt level because it simply isn't your card. This company has a $8B market, and that much in debt and you love to ignore it as if it is meaniless, just a red herring, huh?
On top of that, they are hemmoraging about $750-800m in debt this year with no relief in sight because they never really make their promised fortune, i dicating they can very well fall further in debt. Bankruptcy means nothing to you because you believe in the promised land, which no promise to date by way of meeting financial goals, has ever been met to date. You still believe in the future, with no facts to support, but just hypothetical possibilities on what could possibly happen, rather than what has, or what will.
You're a hopeless optimist. While being an optimist is no crime, and is generally good, you lack insight into reality vs risk going forward and need play the devils advocate if nothing else, then just for self preservation.
You're swimming with sharks here. You're the bait and dont even know it. Be careful out there!
Thanks. I was in and out on this board and the google board back in those days, but I cannot, for the life of me, remember him.
So true my friend, so true.
The weak minded, unfortunately, cannot stand to hear the whole truth. They need to be wrapped up in positive spins to reinforce their insecurities.
Thus, the extreme criticisms and personality attacks.
Mommy always taught us to look both ways before you cross the road.
They are scared to look but only one way.
Its self defeating and immature, but, it is what it is.
Bail?? Laughable how you are so clueless.
By your definition, I've "bailed" dozens of times. Clearly you dont recognize a trader when you see one, even when he makes it clear, crystal clear, he trades. Ive owned more stock, technically, than most people on this board, in sum total, in stock Call Options.
Even though you're clueless, as usual, Im going to give you a bone here. As of this writing, I am 100% out.
I will probably be in and out, a few times, all total, between now and the end of the month, but for now, I am out.
Good luck with your trades. I hope you all make a killing, but please, be careful out there. This one is a very dangerous, but very volitile, stock to trade. You can make it rich trading this one stock akone in Call Options, or you could lose $hundreds of thousands in one 24 hour period.
Its very, very dangerous!
I keep coming back to my old stocks gone into bankruptcy. Believe it or not, I have survived 5 of them now.
All pure luck, where my head drove my heart to sell.goose bumps work wonders.
So....what is so difficult to understand?
What is so difficult to understand is, why is this stock still 25 cents or better. It should be single digits by now.
Crazy, crazy stuff.
Read between the lines.
Do you understand the terms broadcasting misinformation. How about doubletalk.
Its all there, but you need to train your mind to look for it.
Its kind of like a Presidential candidate saying he has no intention of raising taxes, then, he raiises income/revenue by changing the tax code, and saying he didnt raise taxes to a select income class., and saying it is better for America.
Dilution is dilution.
Just because you dont say the word in an article, it doesnt mean it isnt so.
Institution investors know this intuitively.
Inexperienced retail investors look for someone to tell them the obvious.
This is what makes Wall St. Finacial predators of sort. CEO's know their weakness and some out there take advantage of it in their verbages.
Its your job to understand what they're really saying, and equally important is your job to understand what they dont say.
Sometimes, what they dont say is far more important in what they do say.
If you study politics, you will ramp up to speed on this concept much faster.
Politicians were doing this far longer than those gifted artists in Wall St. Double-talk.
This CEO is a really good one, and the number one reason for their huge sucesses thus far. Unfortunately, the house of cards often fall hard and fast when things start to slip for one reason or another.
Thanks. Without making it obvious, I too am overly optimistic. It is the number one cause for my losses, but, those losses do not exceed my gains. They would, were I not constantly looking for methods to the madness where the stock market, and stocks, will eventually fall, where only a fool and his money would neglect what is historicslly obvious.
So... Where optimism is obvious for any and all investors (otherwise why would they invest snd/or be here anyway), I spend my time and thoughts and research doing what few on these boards do, something generally voodoo, and concentrate on downside potentisl.
Anyone can throw money at a stock. Being smart enough not to lose it is the real problem, and experience tells me even more. That experience tells me, it is sometimes just as important NOT to lose your financials, as it is to make a profit. So.... Be careful out there.
All odds are stacked against the retail buyer.
People, if all the $750M were converted to new shares, it would represent a 10% dilution. The stock is down 3 1/2% or so.
