Would you sell your farm or pizzeria because of Putin or bad debt in china? Nope. Why would you sell your stocks.
Technical trade. They call it a roof leaker. Went under 200 day moving average or something. Nothing fundamental. No news. A good chance for shareholders and CELG to increase stake and buyback stock at lower prices respectively.
Just a technical trade. If you are long term holder welcome it. It means the company you own is now able to buyback more stock at cheaper prices thus increasing YOUR stake in the company. It's all good
If I was an executive at Questcor I would use my considerable cash hoard to once and for all bankrupt both the business and owners personally at Citron Research. If this is just another chop shop call that we typically have seen out of Citron who of course is heavily short stock and options then I'd lawyer up and never settle or let up until they are gone, period. Maybe that's just me. I have no patience for trolls like Citron and would love to make an example out of them. I couldn't think of a better use of all that juicy cash at Questcor right now.
What happens to the stock when we see Questcor files libel suit against Citron and goes after them for damages in drug sales, stocks, reputation damage and to boot it was all intentional by Citron. They have a lot of guts making this allegation but apparently they kept it pretty loose in their wording to try and get enough wiggle room to get out of it when all the claims are shown to be unfounded. I'd make sure they couldn't get out of it. QCOR should hire me.
I learned a great lesson from Buffett. If you are a long term investor and your company is buying back stock you WANT low prices. Low prices allow the company to take in more stock. This means you own more of the company. This means lower dividends to pay due to fewer shares. This means higher EPS due to lower share count.
If you are in ATT for 5 to 10 year timeframe pray for low prices. The lower the better and the longer the better. Get paid to wait the whole way and at some point the market adjusts and the stock gains follow.
T's dividend is 100% safe here. The lower the stock goes the more stock they take in and the safer it gets. If you were going to hold for 5 or 10 years it doesn't matter what today's price or tomorrow's is since you would not sell whether the stock is 30, 40 or 50. Therefore hope for low prices and your company gets offered a bargain and you benefit. This is how one makes a lot of money by crushing the short term players
Never happen. Cook and his team as well as the board all want to protect their cozy little setup. Sell stock options the moment they vest. Bilk the company annually as much as they can. Leave shareholders in the dust. Musk wouldn't do that. He'd want to clean house and that means insiders and board lose their 10's of millions each year cash cow. That is a non starter.
There is not even a .0000000001% chance apple would buy tesla. CNBC filling airwaves with more sensationalism as they always do and wasting investors time. Pathetic.
Tesla is not in Apple's core competency and Cook would never let Musk through the doors as a rock star CEO is not what Cook would want to work alongside
They can never grow into a valuation of even 100/share. why is it only down 40 points? they sell low to no margin commodity products in pricewar sectors. this is a charity company sponsored by wall street dollars. if wall street stops giving them money it's over for the stock price. at best they can make 2/share if they stop growing and spending. PE of 10 for a retailer makes them $20/share
This forces apple's hand for the large screen iphone to keep sales and demand stoked. Also Icahn owns these guys now. Cook has no ground to stand on. 50B plus buyback is in the bag if not 100B. Icahn is fuming now. with stock cheaper than ever get ready for Icahn to go into overdrive and get board seats
Baaaaah! Stock going up tomorrow. ISRG the next amazon. no matter what happens it goes up. then it gets bought. then it's over for the shorties
With ISRG trading at this valuation which is 12 times EBITDA when you back out cash and generating almost a billion annually in free cash flow they are now a potential takeover target. There are quite a few candidates out there that could pick them off and are looking to round out their portfolio in this area. One in particular is JNJ. Another is GE. Shorts could get destroyed if they wake up one morning and we see a 550/share takeout.
I know many companies wanted to buy ISRG but the price was too high and the multiple unjustified. At these levels once can believe that any company that believes robotic surgery has a future over lap or open surgery (as a surgical patient I know it does) that one of these companies are going to take this one off the market at a 30% plus premium.
NIC data is about to shoot up if Weinstein and Streep put out a hit on the NRA and guns. Every attack on gun ownership has resulted in massive sales spikes for gun makers. Any perceived fear by gun owners that gun rights will become more restrictive propels sales to record levels.
Weinstein stated he is out to take out gun stocks. Bizarre you would target stocks instead of gun sales. I wonder if he or his friends are short gun stocks. Just a weird thing to target if you are anti-gun isn't it? His movie will have the opposite effect. It will rally the anti-gun people but the pro gun people will just go buy more weapons and the divide continues on and on.
Yup. this is all options expiration. HUGE short position. Cheaper to short more to get your head out from under the massive options the traders have against this. Just a loss minimization strategy.
Weinstein taking on NRA is bullish. Like the shootings, anything that puts fear into gun owners or prospective owners that their rights, guns or ability to purchase them will go away or become more restrictive has always in the past motivated buyers.
I bought this in the IPO. Sold in the 30's for quick flip profit. Was crazy expensive then and I was just feeding off the mania. Now the mania has doubled. Stock trading for 20 times revenues (not earnings). With 15 cents for 2015 as an estimate even if they double that to 30 cents for '16 and again for '17 to 60 cents the stock still trades over 120 PE in 2017. Again this assumes they can double EPS for 3 years running. 120 PE is nuts.
This won't end well. I would not short it because you never know when the music stops. You just don't want to be in it when it does.
Looks like my info was right. Sorry shorts. You just got taken by a bucket #$%$ short shop when you took their absurd lie as truth
