    I bought at 70

    Looks like the insiders, sell side crooks, their investment banking pals and perhaps a few greater fools gave me the thumbs down for telling the truth.

    For the first 3, don't answer your door after the $h1t hits the fan in the market, it will be either the law or people with pitchforks coming to gain their pound of flesh.

    Allowing people to generate wealth without the real work, time and effort that should be required to do it is simply transferring wealth from the many to the few and is completely unethical and in my world is a criminal offense, legalized theft or not.

    Earnings Call

    Yes, I could definitely see the earnings call being a non event, i.e. not bad news but no change in guidance for 2014 and so on. In a bad market and a so so market this would probably go down on non news but it would most likely be short lived and an opportunity.

  • hapihammer hapihammer Apr 17, 2014 6:58 PM Flag

    What can he say math is not his strong point. Being invested in an algo up we go MOMO stock is.

    Good for him. There is many of them in this market, the tale of 2 Nasdaqs stocks. This has actually been reacting weakly on this bounce compared to many of them but there is always next week for CRM to play catch-up I suppose.

    I can't invest in these stocks because let's face it, if they turn the switch off at some point or flip the algos around they will drop back down like a rock.

    Hi wiscy, I don't read anything into it one way or the other but have no data points. I feel like the later they report the actual earnings and revenue, the more they can speak to overall progress and share more information.

    I do know quite a few are a little concerned that the report is not on a Monday. I still don't read much into that although several have said the data points line up against us on a Non Monday report but we'll see. As long as there's not material bad news about the rest of 2014 and beyond I'm fine.

    Here is what is likely to happen with earnings

    by pporox Apr 17, 2014 3:53 PM
    hapihammer hapihammer Apr 17, 2014 5:17 PM Flag

    I don't see that at all. The numbers are expected to anemic and if they are a little more anemic it won't mean anything. It's what they say about Q2 but mostly the 2nd half of 2014 and 2015 and 2016.

    Updates on numbers and progress on various technologies and material contracts will drive the stock. Any negatives or backtracking on 2014 and onward guidance would hurt the stock. Obviously further positives, should subtlely or not so subtlely drive the stock up.

    I anticipate more positives than negatives but if it's a nothing new report than it all comes down to market sentiment at the time.

    The problem is looking at one of the most overvalued MOMOs in the market (FEYE) is that even though it has come down 50% in short order it is still valued to the moon. It still hasn't held a bid so there must be plenty of supply out there and from what I understand there are plenty of more shares unlocking in May.

    Stay away on the long side and short strength or buy puts on strength until you get burnt.

    Will I go long here after getting burnt? No friggen way! This is one heck of a Ponzi market where insiders get rich off of companies that are far from profitable and valued to the moon.

    Once upon a time QE and HFT algo trading did not exist. The markets certainly were not perfect and never will be but they are as rigged as the ever have been. Strong companies are often held down while MOMO garbage is propped up to the moon.

    It may all be legal although I highly doubt it if in depth investigation were done and if it is legal it's just another example of the intent of the law being trumped by reality and the gaming of the system.

    The Q1 earnings should have a miniscule impact on the stock price. Not much is expected for this past Q so it's all about how things are progressing Q2 on with the major focus on the 2nd half of 2014 and any color on 2015 and beyond.

    Last Q TG raised his 2016 NON GAAP earnings guidance from a minimum of $1 to a minimum of $1.50.

    Will he provide further upgraded guidance for 2014 and/or 2015 and/or 2016?

    Anymore color on where the various technologies showcased on the Investor Conference stand? Being that was only on 3/14 I'm not sure how much more we will hear less than 2 months later but one never knows.

    The real thing many investors would welcome besides any improvements in go forward guidance are any more meaningful contracts between now, earning's day and shortly thereafter.

    Hopefully the passing of time is on our side.

    question

    by antioquenodemiami Apr 16, 2014 8:03 PM
    hapihammer hapihammer Apr 17, 2014 9:19 AM Flag

    Absolutely. It looks like the algos are set to buy #$%$ no matter what and the typical MOMOs are all going up as of the reversal 2 days ago yet this is stagnant. I think they'll get it up a bit but if new suckers pile in and hold they will be left holding the bag once again.

    Of course if you think the coming months will be a replay of 2013 then now would be the time to hold your nose and buy. I don't consider that investing. I consider it a joke and playing in a rigged casino because once valuation matters ago anyone holding long is screwed with a capital S.

    insider sales

    The trading algos don't care about insider sales.

    Once the $h1t hits the fan all this stuff will be looked at after the fact. They just need to follow the money but the government invited this but allowing legalized theft to occur in the markets via algos, HFTs and ETF stuffing.

    Money transfer from the many to the few seems to be what they want or it may just be the end game.

    jv, the market is closed tomorrow for Good Friday so you would need to cover today or Monday if you are looking to be out for earnings.

    lack of volume

    I'm long/short tech and have no intention of cashing out my shorts although it seems as though the algo we go up no matter what switch is on at the moment. I know when the time comes the moves down will happen relatively quickly.

    The trading bots and algos don't need no stinking volume.

    Sad but true. It's just how it is in the MOMOs, especially this one.

  • hapihammer hapihammer Apr 15, 2014 5:54 PM Flag

    Hopefully you'll hold it through earnings because with this action there must be bad news. :-)

    Hold tight through next Thursday is you have the nads.

  • hapihammer hapihammer Apr 15, 2014 5:27 PM Flag

    Be careful everfoxy. I track a good number of stocks and besides the overall reversal in the market the reversal in the MOMO stocks was pretty impressive today. Many, many of them participated with higher beta than the market. it was pretty stark.

    Now will this be sustained I can't say but if I had to guess I would say it will be for a littlw while so you probably want to look before you leap.

    Sounds like demeron amongst others from what I've heard. Plenty of quality is being flushed out here.

    I'm going to take advantage on continued weakness down most likely with Jan 2016 in the money calls or which ever ones I feel are best priced.

    GTAT needs a catalyst

    by waterskiboat Apr 15, 2014 10:08 AM
    hapihammer hapihammer Apr 15, 2014 11:09 AM Flag

    No necessarily shorts working hard. The market is very tired and has been turning over for quite a while now. The Nasdaq is not far from correction territory which would be 10% down at around 3933 which is just below it's 200DMA.

    I would like to see a full correction in the other indices also but not a full blown bear or things could get real ugly.

    A full 10% - 15% correction will be healthy for the market in the long term. Watch #$%$ MOMO stocks turnover and not get up and watch stocks with real fundamentals and coming fundamentals bottom at some point and establish market leadership.

    I'm betting GTAT is in the latter group and am trying to keep some powder dry for additional LEAPs buys on the correction.

    Are there any CRM bulls here?

    hapihammer hapihammer Apr 15, 2014 6:42 AM Flag

    How much is organic vs acquired growth at this point? Any idea? How much is from existing vs. new customers recently?

    If you know the answers to these questions, please provide them to CRM because for this second question they told the SEC they could not provide this information.

    Was it that they couldn't or that they wouldn't?

    Never mind that costs continue to grow faster than revenues. That's meaningless. ;-)

    Are you the same imbecile that sold in the $30's for some penny stock?

    I believe so.
