Well the volume did pick up here from 11:50 AM to 12:15 PM but it was to the down side. Someone said semi's not going to continue down. Well this is looking very similar to 2007, 2008 when it went from 61 to 18.
Big slowdown in China and we all know the debt the Europeans are taking on. Now with the siding up with Iran am looking for more disasters in the making. May be a depression rather than a recession in the making.
There are probably some shorts covering now in KLAC as they have big profits to be made. To settle for a couple dollars less now is much better than 5, 6 or more next week if earnings are better than expected. There certainly is no heavy buying today so maybe there will be little move into earnings. Maybe wall street insiders know that they having nothing to fear. Earnings are a week away so not long to wait. I am not on the inside so I have covered my short and will wait to see what happens.
Very happy with higher margins but I do not move the market. Whether they just used the lower revenues to tank the stock in order to buy low or they feel it is justified, I do not know.
Wall street is pulverizing these semi-stocks. KLAC in a strong downtrend with wall street shorting heavy. Folks will start talking about a short squeeze. There will be no short squeeze. Clients will eventually, if not already be saying "Sell'. Wall street will wait and cover with clients shares. You will hear that KLAC is oversold here which it may be but you will not see any big jump back to say 57 which it was less than 2 weeks ago. I hope for longs that this is not another GMCR or MU. We have not even had a correction in this market and you have stocks like this getting taken to the cleaners. Be careful, for when the market does correct it is going to be very nasty. I know this has been nasty for KLAC share holders and hopefully KLAC has another run up so folks can get out without losing too much. GLTA
Obviously a decision was made yesterday that KLAC was going down hard. Right out of the gate continued shorting and selling. One wonders if wall street knows earnings are going to be poor when they come out in 2 weeks. Definitely in a strong downtrend. It has given back over 30 dollars in 8 months which is more from a dollar perspective that it gave back in all of 2008. Decided to cover 1500 at 52.13. Appears that it may go lower but picked that 13 number to cover half. I covered half of GMCR way too early and maybe I am doing the same thing here. Have heard that pigs get slaughtered so I will take the nice gain.
Company announces that we are going to give you 2 cents as Wall Street is going to take over 3 dollars from the share price in the next 2 days. They use to say it was good to get your 2 cents worth. Inflation does make a difference. Wall Street getting very greedy.
This is worse than 2008 as the whole market tanked. These semi stocks are not going to be coming back like they did in 2009. IN 2016 this stock will lower than it is now.
Steve, what price did you purchase? Since the name of the game is to make money one would have to reason that the shorts are not dumb. They maybe a little numb at making so much money. Yes, the analysts were out positive on FOGO . Usually they were involved in selling the IPO. They do not tell you to now sell the junk we sold you.
Well I went short at 19.79. Can make a little money back. Certainly do not believe that they would sell for 21.
