Shorts are like rapist, they only look for vulnerability not equality !!!!!
No shares for us retail losers. Plenty of short shares if you are willing to pay the Wall street sharks. After one attack a couple months back we went up 2 million short shares in a 2 week reporting period. However, no short shares available for retail traders.
Just another example of BRCM penetration:
Sony's adoption of 5g in smartphone, "Announcement demonstrates rapid adoption of 5G WiFi across all product segments "
Now analyst feel BRCM may not meet targets due to decreased S4 sales. Everything is based on Smartphone sales, which in entirety, have never been better. BRCM is also getting more low in design win which they have more $$ per phone. " Call me Crazy", but I think these analyst are wrong. Guess we will see at earnings time.
China was a blessing and a curse. Solar deep price declines helped the industry to take off and made grid parity a possibility. Declining prices stimulated demand but also caused over production. This has happened in many times and many industries. Most recently, I can think of LCD panels and Natural Gas as examples. You would think the industry would try to balance before it hits bottom, but usually requires financial disaster before they take action. Natural gas and Panel makers are starting to come back from rock bottom prices. Hopefully, we are as well.
IMO, ETFC going up the slope in earnings. An uptrend in long term rates should help their NIM. Increase in Home values should help their H/E write-offs and foreclosures. I expect an better trading environment this summer and less write-offs. Lets see if it comes to pass.
Also our loan portfolio should be under 10 Bill next qtr. Finally in single digits.
There are plenty of people who own 4's and are just waiting for new Iphone release. Will be glad to sell my 4 for a cheap price.
You forgot the most important , current catalyst, the "I-Buy Back" !!!!! I would not bet against a 60 billion $$$ buy back.
Since Apple is very expensive I buy long term options. I bought Oct calls since most of the new products should be released by then for the Christmas rush.
His shareholders had better hope he didn't buy all those defective Chinese solar panels. It is a lot harder to go back on roofs to repair than going to a solar farm.
on the EU tariffs. 12% is not huge but big enough to notice.
Heck yes we have a back log. It is called 18 million short share back log. people always forget the 900 million loan that is due FSLR !
If apple comes out with a new device that causes lines to form around their offices.................pardon the pun, "Watch OUT" !!!!!!!
Watch sales crack? We don't have a watch............................not yet!
