I've never had any post or position in GT prior to 3 months ago. This is exactly what the original poster was talking about. Someone issues an opinion that differs from yours and does so in a non-derogatory manner and you just can't handle it. I'm going to short calls big time next week. Why don't you wait until I'm wrong about GT until you start running your mouth?
That's an oversimplification. Using Matt's numbers (and pretty much everyone else's in here), the investment into GT/sapphire is (est) will be well into the billions of dollars to switch to sapphire. The actual cost of the screen is only a fraction of the total investment. The point is, you can't calculate what it will cost Apple by simply accounting for the cost difference between the 2 screens. Apple is and will be spending exponentially more switching to sapphire than just simply buying screens.
ok. Here's the test....
I have said for 3 months that there's zero chance of sapphire (screen) making it onto the 2014 iphone no matter when it's released, GT is going to say they lost around $70-$75 million dollars last year, and on 2/24 GT is going to get hammered. There is nothing derogatory and no name calling whatsoever. It's my opinion. However, wait until you see who shows up to call me a stupid moron and that my opinion is wrong about something that hasn't even happened yet.
Been saying it from day 1. If you only want a place where literally everyone has to agree with you and you don't want to hear any other differing opinion, you're never going to succeed at anything. Not in stocks, not in business, sports, family....nothing. Maybe you really should set up your own "positive-thoughts-and-positive-information-only" room for GT if you can't handle any negative information whatsoever regardless of its validity. If you only want to hear how great you are and how smart you are, go call your mamma.
Wait, you just said you're positive I'm short and in trouble. Now I have no position? Which is it? I think you're losing it.
Also..... "Malodorous" lies? Is there another kind? and "sees through transparent" makes wonderful sense. I though you meant the kind of transparent you CAN'T see through. LOL!!!
What I honestly think is you're pathetic at your real life so you need to go to a fake place where you like to beat up fake people in an attempt to feel important at something....anything.... even if it's all make-believe. Totally obvious you're using this room to make up for something lacking in real life. All your fake friends are here if you'd like to open up.
I'm well into the 8 figures. No wait....9 figures after last week. Maybe it's 10 figures. See dumbsh+t, anybody in a fake internet world can say anything they want. You're just dying for people to believe you. Pathetic.
Why is it sad and pitiful that I don't have an open position? The stock just went up like 20% right after I told the entire board I closed my short positions. I didn't feel sad.......strange.

I'm out until I see how far it will run to earnings. If it continues, I'll do something right before earnings. That isn't a rip on the stock, I just think that even with GT reiterating prior guidance, there's still going to be a knee-jerk reaction to the big loss. Plus, I can't see them piggy-backing a huge announcement with earnings like they did last time. And I doubt anything new will caused them to increase the "$1 Billion by 2015" guidance.

Your "investing gains"? You could live in your mom's basement and own 8 shares of GT for all we know.
Chelle, I said I shorted the stock after Mung's SA article and then on Feb 4th, I posted that I closed all of my shorted stock and short calls. (see: "A moment of thanks") I've never, not once, lost money shorting GT. Since you're so obsessed with me, I'll be sure to post every move I make so you don't look stupid again. I know it drives you nuts when I make money shorting your baby. Don't take it so personally.
And then those ADs were "put on hold" by the MOC on Jan 31st, which is where things are now....unresolved. Flaws' comment was about the dumping investigation...period. You are not only mixing 2 totally separate things because it's way over your head, but you're using an old article with old information to make yourself look stupid. Well done.
A) Don't be so arrogant to think that of the other 12,000 products Corning produces, they're talking specifically about
B) They literally say that every year in their forward-looking statements
Honestly, Jobs would have ignored it and frankly, he wouldn't have even asked your opinion in the first place. Jobs would probably even ask, "and how much are we making off of AppleCare premiums and replacing screens? F that. Give them a panorama camera instead" That was his mentality.
No, actually the funniest part is you saying "I'll get Matt" to handle it. As in "I'm telling my Dad - he'll beat you up". Anyway.....you're wrong. (That's funny too considering you just called someone infinitely smarter than you a liar and/or totally stupid).
His quote was about the dumping investigation which has yet to be resolved. You need to read, "China Delays Anti-Dumping Duties On EU Polysilicon" from Jan 31, 2014. First, I need you to look up the definition of "preliminary" so you don't confuse that with "final". And let's assume you know "duties" mean "tariffs" or "taxes", K? Here's the quote from last week:
"The MOC (Chinese Ministry of Commerce) issued a PRELIMINARY ruling on January 24, 2014 that solar-grade polysilicon from Europe has been dumped in the Chinese market, but that taking into account undefined "special market conditions," it had been decided "not to implement" ADs at this preliminary stage." Oh, and "ADs" are "Anti-Dumping Duties" (taxes). Can you get Matt to write a letter to James Flaws, apologizing for calling him a stupid liar?
When Jobs ran things, Apple was arrogant (in a good way), edgy, and had basically said we're doing X and screw everyone else. Now Apple has the attitude of "let's give them what they want". The number 1 complaint amongst iPhone owners was screen breakage. So instead of advancing the guts or technology of the phone aside from minor tweaks and doing something crazy edgy, they're (presumably) going to just concentrate on putting a more durable screen on it and maybe making it bigger. YAWN. I know all you GT cheerleaders think it's terrific but if you put iPhone A with sapphire next to iPhone B with GG, you'll never be able to tell the difference. The big selling point is you can throw iPhone A out of a moving car without having to spend the next afternoon at the Genius Bar. I get it but a feature like that, one that you can't notice immediately from across the room (like Jobs used to say) ain't a feature at all. Read Wolverton's "Apple's Timid Tim Once Again Disappoints".
Thought you said you went to went to a graduate school whose entrepreneurial program was ranked higher than Harvard? Whatever, not important. My question is why list all these diverse "interests" and..um...."qualifications", when you are interested in GT and only GT? In the last year, you posted over 1500 times about GTAT and nothing for any other company. (didn't look at all of them - kinda going out on a limb here. I'm sure Chelle will be by to say, "DrDolittle is a lying POS because on March 3, 2013 Mung made 1 post about his GE stock!)
Anyway... you're also heavily invested in GT and therefore heavily biased so I'd also have to question your "independent analysis". I know GT is about as close to a perfect company maybe in the history of companies but I can't find 1 negative comment you've ever written. You even once told me "I hope they did lose $100M in 2013" like it's a good thing. I'm sure your new blog will be wildly successful for the people who need the hand-holding and reassurance that GT will be just fine. One thing is for certain though, there won't be anything remotely "independent" about it.
Seriously? Apparently you've never hear a CEO on a conference call or speak at an investor meeting....ever. These forward-looking statements are in every Risk Factor section of every presentation. "Our operations and financial performance could be negatively impacted, if the markets for our products do not develop and expand as we anticipate" ??? Translation: "We could lose money if people don't buy our sh+t". C'mon man. Any CEO of any company could (and does) say all of these statements and they're all applicable to literally every single company. Go back and re-read each statement and at the end of each line say this, "No sh+t, Sherlock". Then it'll make sense.
