Q: How can you lose money on something that goes up when it shouldn't and goes up really high when the Vix is only up slightly?
A: Probably only when the Vix is down big?
Looks like a good product to me!
It doesn't matter what the stock price was over the last year. A buyout price is valued at what the buyer says it is. I believe Intel can take the company and cut what is needed to make the Altera part that is left over as a very profitable part of Intel's future company. But Intel will need to pay a price to get it. The price is reasonable at $14B.
Intel's Wind River Team with TTTech are working together for Autonomous Driving and Advanced Automotive Applications. Wind River contributes as a key software partner and provides its VxWorks real-time operating system for advanced automotive applications, such as autonomous driving. You can get more information at wind rivers website.
Wind River is a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel. Wind River along with Northrup Grumman and the Navy are key technology suppliers on producing the X-47C UCLASS aircraft program. Wind River's software, VxWorks, is the real-time operating system serving as the software platform for this system. The Unmanned Carrier-Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike (UCLASS) system will enter service in 2020.
Forget about the self driving car - how about the self flying fighter jet and self flying plane. In the years to come after the military completes its first round of planes, Wind River could make the real-time operating system for these automated aircrafts.
Don't forget, Intel also has a software arm. Wind River Systems, McAfee, ... may not seem like a big impact on revenue now, but security is going to continue to be an issue, and these software acquisitions are going to pay off in the long run. Just look up the X-47B program. Wind River is one of the key technology suppliers on the joint industry team for the X-47B UCLASS program. Its VxWorks real-time operating system served as the software platform for this system that won a joint Navy/Northrop Gruman aviation award for a battlefield-ready aircraft. The Unmanned Carrier-Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike (UCLASS) system will enter service in 2020.
Forget about the self driving car - how about the self flying fighter jet! And don't overlook that this could turn in to the self flying plane in the years to come after the military completes its first round of planes. Wind River is fully owned by Intel and makes the real-time operating system and software platform for this UCLASS system.
Karen is making C her number one bank and making BAC her number 2. Always do the opposite of Karen!!
VLGEA makes a tax settlement with NJ of about 10% ($33 million) of market cap due in March 2015. They will get future tax benefits of 7-8 Million by end of April 2015. So net, they will owe 25 million by the end of April 2015. I do not see how this is a good deal for the company or shareholders. Why is stock price not moving?
Yep, just saw the interview. IBM and Apple have 12 Business Apps already and will have 25 more by the end of the year! These are not 99 cent Apps!
Businesses will be buying bigger iPads along with customers. Just like bigger iPhone, Apple will gain share with bigger iPad. Apple watch will sell well at the beginning and will be a big gift item in Q4. This can only help Q2 numbers and will help Q4 numbers beat even with iPhone 6s not being as big as iPhone 6! If Apple does OTT television service by end of the year, this could really propel AAPL stock throughout the year!!!
Can't wait for Event!
