that was, imo, a pretty sound and introspesctive analysis of how big blue was able to "beat" drastically reduced expectations. These global markets are a farce built on stimulus and money printing presses. Raise the debt, lower the bar, and run stocks higher!
yet many beat already reduced and lowered estimates. This also shows yoy revenue declines, so why are the markets at all time highs again?
especially not good when markets are sitting at all time highs!..Revenue miss after revenue miss on reduced and lowered expectations and the markets keep rallying...when will the insanity stop?
These wishy washy markets are so due for a monster selloff, friday was a drop in the bucket, but I still wouldn't be surprised to see them go all gangbusters tomorrow and really flush out some shorts. I do hate these markets!
to the upside or the downside? It appears they may be happy keeping this in the 570 neighborhood the rest of the day.
robots don't care about money...people do. There will just be more money and profits in the pockets of the smaller number of human entities over-seeing the "bot" trading.
what are you doing dude? If you are at work, then you're not doing your job, you're reading yahoo message boards....is that commended at the workplace?
jkug...the way to play dang is to either go 6 months out on call options or just own the stock...this has $1-$2 max downside in the worst of markets and could easily be a $20 stock or more at some point over the next 12 months. Dang isn't going away, that's all I know. They could easily be bought out if some other china e-commerce player wanted them under their umbrella.
I'm long dang, but I lhedged my bet and oaded the boat on S$P 2105 puts yesterday, (a bunch 10 cents from the low)and am feeling pretty good about it right now! I have been getting pounded by the markets lately...it's payback time!
this bull market is so old and long in the tooth that I wouldn't call it a trend any more...I'd call it a blow off top...globally, equities are all experiencing blow off tops. There could be another 5 percent of gains left, but i doubt it.... I'm willing to bet that next week will be an atrocious one for the long side of the markets. Gl w/ your trading.
but the way they play dang is that they most likely take it down to $9 tomorrow to kill any premiums upon expiration. There is always the long shot of a friday morning upgrade and a pop to over $10, but that is dreaming.
buying netflix here is like russian roulette....nflx missed earnings, debts have dramatically increased and their metrics are completely out of whack with the fundamentals....it is a pure momo play that can turn on a dime and drop 50 points in a heartbeat. I would never recommend that to anyone. It was a killer awesome day for the longs though, I will admit. Buying now is beyond a fool's errand.
this is some circa 1999 stock trading going on here....totally missed estimates and she is flying to the moon alice!
congrats on your profits, but NFLX is not growing earnings very much and now sports a 2016 forward p/e of over 100. These prices won't last.
their earnings growth going forward 1,2 3 years out doesn't justify a p/e of 150. The earnings growth is not that good and the competition is coming from all sides. This is starting to remind me of the Atari 2600 back in the early 80's. Congrats on your profits longs.
INTC barely made its' already much reduced earnings and revenue numbers, intc will reduce forward capex spending by 15 percent...this is not a good sign for any suppliers in the sector related to intc. The jobs number for march came in 60 percent below estimates, the empire manufacturing gauge fell from an estimate of 7 to a negative 1.2...this is widely regarded a s an indicator of a looming recession. The bad news keeps piling in day after day and the markets keep moving up day after day...we are essentially sitting at all time highs in this terrible global and domestic economic environment. For five years now the markets have been anticipating a fed rate hike and for five years, every bit of bad news is applauded and rewarded as a rate hike seems to be pushed further out. Let me clue you in...the fed will never raise rates until the other large global particip[ants begin to do so themselves. Since they are all at the early stages of their own QE programs, it will be years before the fed raises rates. Their hands are tied and they are all out of ammunition. What is propelling stocks up in the face of all this adversity is beyond me, but the impending crash, and there will be a crash, is magnifying in its' potential size with each passing day. These are the most unhealthy underlying fundamentals I have ever seen in my 40 years of trading. This beats 2000, 2007, 2009 hands down. Don't get caught with your rally cap on, because the side mirror of the bear truck is going to drive right on buy and knock you square in the noggin with your cheering fists in the air. Any dollars in those fists will fly out by the roadside and all the beaten down bear market players will crawl out of the woods in their tattered clothes to go buy some new suits, cars and homes.
right on...BTW, I'm sure Chelsea Clinton will throw her hat in the political ring soon enough, but GW's two daughters are seemingly stupid and just want to pump out babies. They may try to run for the PTA board of their privileged children's school when the time comes. "we would like to make a motion to have 2400 count, monogrammed egyptian hand towels in the spa/bathroom at our school....these hot air dryers are atrocious to look at!"
