1. The price point is too high, $199 should be the target.
2. It cannot work on a standalone basis, rendering it pointless for most.
3. It wont launch 'till 2015, years after Samsung.
So, we have a very high priced, piece of vaporware of limited promised utility.
This is not the Jobs' way.
Disappointing..... to say the least.
There was a guy on the corner this morning. His placard read, "Repent, the end is neigh".
There was some basis to his prediction. It could happen i suppose.
Your placard makes no sense! I think the weather, over the last 15 years, has washed away too much of the original content leaving something that even the most skilled jeopardy player could never crack.
Bottom line, predictions time out. Time for sometihng new methinks!
So we can get everyone's opinion.
Thank you for your co-operation!
CSR rejects Microchip Tech approach, shares surge
"The suitor was revealed as Microchip, which partnered with CSR just weeks ago on a new Bluetooth Smart module (pictured above) for fitness trackers, retail beacons and smart home appliances. CSR said:
The price proposed by Microchip has been rejected and the Board is considering its options for the company.
The sale rumors had pushed CSR up to a market valuation of just south of $2 billion, and the FT had reported the sale price was likely to be as much as $3 billion. Microchip will now need to make a firm bid by 25 September, or explicitly drop its takeover ambitions."
"We are pleased to report continued progress in the fourth quarter and a solid finish to fiscal 2014," said Dan Mondor, Concurrent's president and CEO. "Our revenue in the fourth quarter was up nearly 20% versus the same period last year and full year revenue grew more than 12% over the prior year. Not including proceeds related to the sale of intellectual property in fiscal 2013, we nearly doubled our operating income year-over-year, grew our operating cash flow over 37%, and returned $4.4M to our shareholders in the form of cash dividends. We also expanded our video and real-time customer base, added to our product portfolio, and were awarded five new video patents during the course of the year. In summary, we made solid progress in fiscal 2014 in both improved financial performance and continued market traction and we are optimistic as we move forward in fiscal 2015."
Looks to me like a few people are bailing, and others don't want to risk going long, before the results
What kind of revenue & earnings do they need to avoid a trip to the woodshed?
The investors who gambled in Countrywide, which carried huge risk, have had that risk eliminated and now walk off with huge returns. This is not the way markets are supposed to operate. The investors who put their money in Countrywide and failed in their due diligence should be the ones who pay the price for their greed and stupidity, not BAC shareholders, who had absolutely nothing to do with any of these shenanigans.
The more NUAN fails to deliver, the higher the odds for a buy-out go, counterbalancing the impact of continued poor results.
Nuance, the even Stevens of stocks
It's as if the market has finally taken the measure of management and is not surprised by the level of failure any more. I suppose that could be a positive in a peculiar way!
The best we can hope for here is avoiding a new 52-week, and all-time, low pps.
Such are the humble aspirations of the typical Synacor shareholder!
It's akin to hoping the pain from losing a second leg will not be more than the pain from losing the first leg.
Thanks you Synacor management!
We shareholders will just suck it up!
I find our accounting rules work pretty well for companies who deliver results. You know the old saying, a poor tradesman blames his tools.
From experience, I try to avoid companies who are adept at delivering excuses in place of actual results.
Usually when the volume spikes like yesterday and you close at the bottom of the range, you get a small bump next day followed by continued selling for a lower close. The indigestion caused by yesterday's confessions will take a few days to clear. I expect we'll go lower. I'm trying to decide whether to back up the truck once we bounce off the bottom in a few days or let this one go.
Peculiar how those "large contracts" you mention will not be having much impact on revs, at least revs per the guidance! What's up with that?
Have you any idea how ugly your hatred makes you sound? You may not yet understand it but Fox News is doing you no favor.
Never do the government a favor. The first chance the gov gets it will stab you in the back, favor or no favor.
Just like the scorpion, the government is unable to alter its ways and BAC shareholders must pay the price.
Obama has taken us from the brink of disaster left by the GOP and now the economy is strong, corporate profits are soaring, unemployment is falling. We've returned to a healthy growing economy. In short, as President Obama promised, hope has returned. We have almost forgotten the imbecile, George W. and the controller of his strings, #$%$ Cheney, a man who could not shoot straight. President Obama is without doubt the greatest president for both Wall Street and Main Street the United States has ever had the good fortune to have.
The hate mongers at FoxNews, who stir up hatred in a small percentage of the populace, cannot argue the facts. The facts don't support their idiotic, hate-laden story.
For your suggestion to make any sense, today would have to be the first day the market got wind of this potential liability. Do you think that's the case? Has all communication to the rock you're sitting under been cut?
And still the pps drops day in day out:-
