Sport:, here is something else you might find amazing that your employer didn't tell you about when you signed the contract:
You might want to review what happened to dave_ho or davey boy who was pursuing the same story line on the drive boards as you are.
Highly recommended, just type in the word subpoena on this or the WDC board.
"It is odd how much you rant and rave about people proving this or that. The onus of proof in the USA is on the accuser, not the accused. You have routinely failed to prove anything yet demand while screaming into the wind for those you accuse to prove against your accusations"
It's all part of his 10 year act. Take your pick for our friend:
1. Mental patient with computer priviledges
2. Small time professional trader
3. Paid pitchfork for the cartel
4. All of the above
Just another nail in the coffin of the crack pot traders and the naysayers.
BTW, HTCH up 14% today.
Don't dispute reasons 1 and 2, but let's look behind door #3 Montey, the village idiot is a paid pitchfork for the cartel.
With the cartel's fearless leader now under investigation and Luczo's public outcry about bank traders using incendiary Analyst reports to drive volatility, the heat is finally on.
From the run up in short interest prior to Seagate's report last month, a lot of shorts probably got burned and they are looking for retribution. So they haul out Chanos, hoping they can recruit others in their annual short trade. Voila, the vulture starts working the board 24/7 to #$%$ the weak hands and your buddy does his thing.
It's all is very familiar to anyone who has watched Seagate trading and this board for any length of time.
Two points for the good guys: between shorting a high dividend, low P/E stock that buys back a lot shares in a raging bull market and with the FEDs now watching STX trading, it may cause some members of the cartel to lose their nerve.
That's another gross distortion, STX and WDC have no such plans to spend that much on SSDs. Still a niche market because SSDs still cost 6 to 10 times more than a comparable hard drive. FYI, due to technical limitations with scaling NAND flash beyond beyond the 22nm node, NAND flash cost reductions will dramatically slow according to SNDK which is working on 3D flash. .
Like you, SSD stocks are big losers.
You could have Warren Buffet or Peter Lynch giving advice on this board and most of the turds would still complain or find fault with it.
As you noted, what a bunch of losers and ingrates!
I agree you could have Warren Buffet posting on this board and most of numb nuts would ignore or harass him. I figure the harassers are nothing but SFB professional traders who can't make a buck unless some Analyst like JPM, Barclays, or GS, is shilling for the them or they get inside info.
1800 on the SP500 is a distinct possibility in 18 months if the Aholes in DC dont screw it up.
What's the matter, are you jealous you missed another one that vikes nailed?
It must really suck being a SFB, no talent deviant who spends every waking hour #$%$ about posters who know far more than you do.
Vikes you are right, it doesn't matter whether it's from a major investment bank or a small shop, Analyst research is compromised by various agendas. You would probably be better off reading a fortune cookie.
"You were the one that began making weekly, ultra right wing diatribes on the WDC board to the point they censored you. Ninety percent of your posts are ultra right wing political BS. Have you ever made a correct call on a stock?"
Give that point to vikes
"How that grand dark force evil criminal conspiracy you've been ranting about for 10 years"
Usually when it comes to Walturd, I go by the rule those who make an effort to engage an idiot are libel to also be considered one, but I could not pass up the chance.
Seems like the boss, Stephen J. Luczo himself, also appears a little concerned about traders and shill Analysts working together to tank his stock.
Remember these commments from Luczo' April, 2012 Barrons interview?
"Because the drive stocks are not being priced on fundamentals, they being priced by large investment banks for volume, and volume requires volatility"
"So thaat's why all the big firms are in a different camp than the smaller research firms on their perspective of the drive industry. Is it because these are the smart guys, and those aren't? That doesn't make any sense. It is because the banks are MOTIVATED by volatility and the boutique firms aren't. And therefore the research reflects that. So you can create and environment that always creates doubt, with billion dollar market cap swings in a week. It's insane. Why does it work? Beacuse you have traders who loe to make that work"
I always thought those who like to bash others over conspiracy concerns are trying to cover something up.
BTW, as far as Waltie's calls go:
Wasn't he telling us back in November how WDC would outperform STX?
Sorry, ain't happening Waltie!
ROFLMFAO@U Again Walturd!
