"As a person on the sidelines, it's a warning. My experience
is it's never a good thing when a company uses capital to
buyback stock. I would rather see it going into R&D or
acquisitions (ie, add to revenue streams)."
NVidia wasted $367M on Iceram, then internal R&D plus supporint Icera salaries & expenses.
And taking on too many R&D projects too quickly can crash & burn a company
"Particular to Nvidia, I would question why the buyback? "
If you remember a few years ago, this was Jensen's counter to stock manipulation.
It's worked brillaintly.
Also, they believe, and evidence shows them correct, the bought the stock at lower prices.
If NVidia has run out of shares for employee compensation, then either buyback or issue new shares.
The one thing we do agree on is they should devote more to dividends !!!!!!
"Intel is going to stop paying $66M/qtr"
NVIdia has till the end of the year to compensate for the revenue stream.
They already are branching into many areas for new revenue streams with AI, VR and self-driving cars.
"I just have to watch Huang's keynote speech and Nvidia's trading action next week. It's so simple you can do it to."
Many will do that... including me.
Keynote speech will have a lot coming at you including lots of eye candy... it's NVidia.
What do you think about NVidia's accelerated stock buyback ?
"You, as a person long Nvidia stock, should accept the fact that other people may have opposing points of view."
I already said, "Good Luck on your short"
"That way you won't make childish comments/accusations"
Like stating NVDA will have a rally peak based on AMD hype...
"It's an IQ thing."
Repeat: You don't know squat about Pascal.
Yet you think posting on this board will promote others to short when you do...
"Good, then you find nothing wrong with suggesting watching NV's trading action next week."
Nothing wrong watching NV's trading action...
Nothing wrong pointing out you fell for the AMD spin either...
"Now why don't you explain what's wrong with being smart "
Nothing.... feeble attempt to distract you don't know squat about Pascal
"not doubt, rather astute awareness."
Repeat: You don't know squat about Pascal...
"Don't just blindly listen to the fast gpu hype"
You're blindly listening to the AMD spin...
AMD is hyping their future GPUs half a year before launch.
Good Luck on your short
"you attempting to distract attention from my opinion concerning async compute"
You're attempting to promote doubt knowing squat about Pascal !!!!!
johnny_dollars, Please tell us what you know about Pascal ??
Or rather you don't know squat !!!!!
