Goldman Sacs didn't even have to downgrade. TXN (plus the QCOM results) dented sentiment for them. It's Microchip all over again. Buying Opp.
Everytime the nxpi chart turns ugly... it's smart to buy more. I speak from experience with this stock, I've been following it closely since 2011.
benefits of restructuring take time. see nxpi for a good reference. Restructured back in... what, like 2010, 2011? Something like that. And look at em now.
perhaps Ricci's mom owns a ton of NUAN stock. May 7 is the thursday before mothers day.... "happy muthas day mah!!!"
with 10x the avg volume... that's when I will be whipping my pants off and popping the champagne. Today's action is interesting though... everyone's left scratching their heads. Either something's happening or MM's have a twisted sense of humor.
I'm in ILMN. And it's a double for me so far. Still holding. Even today, I'm glad to be in the stock, since I'm not selling anytime soon and would like to add on dips.
i own some cldx. these are two entirely different stocks. FEIC is a long term nanotech play... thinly traded and not as volitile as cancer immunotherapy stocks.
the real way to generate conversation here is to discuss nanotech. I had heard of FEI company before and knew they sold microscopes. Never did any dd on them though. I started researching how lockheed martin produces their graphene desalinization material. which led me to FIB and dual beam. Which led me to FEIC. I can't tell if Lockheed is using FEI's products in their desalinization project or not. But from there I started researching FEI's product lines further. From what I can see they are the best nanotech pure play in the public markets.... their products are involved in some interesting fields. The low trading volume is a cause for concern. I welcome discussion here. Still early in my dd with FEIC... I appreciate any tips jumping off to further research...
you can view full list of holdings here, search the following terms:
ishares xt exponential technologies
it's the first result on google. you just have to scroll down the page. It shows the top ten holdings, but you can click on 'ALL' to view them all. Since the fund is an index created by morningstar analysts, it started off as equal weighting for all positions. I don't know the fund's rebalancing schedule.
I love the idea too I already own shares directly in a lot of the companies. Bought a couple hundred shares to start a position here. For now I will keep it as a small tracking position, will poach ideas from it. I don't understand the fund's exposure to telecom, like Sprint, Vodafone, Orange... etc. Didn't know 'exponential' includes clunky old telecom giants!
props, seeker. that is a winning strategy. everyone needs to keep in mind these are long term plays and like i hear many people say about apple, "you just gotta get long" which means, buy on dips ;)
sometimes I wonder if these idiot after market trades are actually fat finger trades or someone who wants to manipulate the market at the open (400 shares are pocket lint to that kind of someone, of course....)
d'oh. I've been in FEYE since the high $20s but completely missed panw's run (kept waiting for a retracement). Also been in NOC, LMT, NXPI for years.
PANW seems to be best in breed though. I feel like this one has to be in my port, but irritated to be buying at this valuation. Sometimes with stocks like this.. you just gotta do it. kudos to the steadfast panw longs here.
nuance is often nameless. the man behind the curtain. But nuan's association with Watson is well known...
it's unsettling nuan is not up on this news. Are investors just ignorant? doubtful.. Or is it something else?
