ISRG blew about a billion on buybacks. They look ill timed if done within the last year. Fairly typical for most co's to blow buyback timing though. Would rather see a dividend out of this company for some support. With $17 in earnings and a billion left on the balance sheet how about a $10/share dividend which is about 3% yield. Also a 5 for 1 stock split with that might get some exciting going as it did Mastercard. Need something out of management to convey some long term confidence in the company besides them dumping their stock and buying it back simply to offset stock option dilution
forget 3D printing. that is so yesterday's bubble. The new race is in robotics! Let the bubble begin. Get ready for every robotic related stock to skyrocket and a slew of IPO's as Wall Street smells blood in the water. Sheep prepared to be slaughtered!
RTRX was just entering the game as a hail mary for the shorts. Looks like it didn't work. 1/3 of the float has to cover at some point. QCOR going to 100+
Not sure why this is news. CM has been stating for 2 weeks they have no deal with Apple. Did people think they were BS'ing and had a deal? It was pretty clear cut when they put out multiple press releases that they were still negotiating and no deal was made. Funny it gets a reaction today
Wedbush said something negative so algo bots are trading out at speed. should peter out and KORS is crushing it this holiday season. Went to few malls and while very few people were in coach stores the KORS stores were jam packed and always busy. Also anecdotally in my family the younger teen girls, 20 something and tweeners all asking for KORS stuff. That is the high priority stuff on all of their lists. I am not worried. Wedbush is way off the mark but that is the game they play. Their interests are not those of investors or KORS or their customers
Wall Street needs you to buy and sell and buy again to make money. Take a look at how many buys and sells have been on coke, Google, Apple , etc. take any stock also,at a lifetime high and see how many times upgrades and downgrades by same firm on same stock. What would following their advice get you? Trading fees and taxes to slash your investment
Yup. Last gasp for air. Angi going to zero. unscalable money losing business. always has been. believe the dream they say and get out before the nightmare
Wonder what the max pain strike is on option expiration. Earnings will be after the expiration so traders lost the volatility on that so now it is just a matter of getting both puts and calls to max pain expire.
Remember apple actually stopped growing YOY in the last year. The worry is that growth will stop and sales go down. iPhone sales in big jeopardy as subsidy game is changing rapidly and users holding phones longer than ever making upgrade cycle long. All bad for apple.
Apple does not have a unique product anymore and until they can get another hit on their hands that gives them a 2 year lead with fat margins and huge sales it is more of the same worry. I fear an iwatch just won't have the dollars or the adoption of iphone or ipad. Also iTV looks like it will never happen and by the time it could others will have already figured out most of what jobs cracked in tv
bucket shop short seller put out that false report. it's bogus. shorts to die on earnings report
My info from hospitals is that there are no discounts of 50% or anything close to that. nothing but typical sales discounts ordinary and customary have been offered to hospitals
just a bucket shop as you said who went short and the sheep of wall street doing their thing. hopefully they cover before earnings blasts them out as the squeeze comes and isrg heads back to 500
small chop shop broker put out note that ISRG cutting prices 50% for hospitals on robots. not true but sheep follow the dumb. earnings will take care of it and the short squeeze could be painful as it appears more shorts piled on today to push price down
Boom! I nailed it yesterday! Stock up huge right now on prelim earnings. When shorts going to learn not to follow a chop shop short seller bucket firm.
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
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.
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.
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.
