What are the near-term catalysts? Besides for Singles Day, earnings report and analyst ratings, what can drive the stock up? With Amazon, there is period SSS results and new product results. I don't see similar upside catalysts. All I see is the looming lockup expiration.
The BOD should be responsible for maximizing shareholder value of spinco. Actions of the board should include selling of BABA shares if it maximizes shareholder value. I see this as kicking the decision down the road. Yes, it's better than saying they will dump the shares on the market. But is worse than saying they will never dump the shares. They are basically saying another entity will decide what to do with the shares.
* missed consensus rev this Q
* one time benefit of $0.07 due to R&D tax credit treatment. W/o item, actually missed earnings
* guiding down rev for next Q
* guiding down earnings for next Q
* fewer $1m deals
* before sell off, PE was 30. Competitors trading at about 20
Stock definitely deserves to get whacked for missing estimates. The bigger concern really is whether this is a one time thing or whether this signals a new sustained trend of slower growth. Wallstreet doesnt like uncertainty so it's time to move the money to other targets. I recall VMW had a similar earnings report. Guided down a bit but not too much. Stock got whacked. Was in the doghouse for months. Should we expect any differently for FFIV?
I wouldn't be buying at these levels. This stock is dead money at best ...
Yep. Looks like we have two deceased. First is car thief who managed to make it fly through the air and wedge it between two buildings. Second is owner who mistakenly thought it could fly over a cliff. People should read the users manual before operating the vehicle .....
I was holding a boatload of weekly puts. Stock was looking strong. End of day selloff was a blessing. It looked like it was going to roar past 225. I was ready to admit defeat and sell for a loss. Instead I got a nice present. Happy New Year to you all.
They will not see anywhere near the highs when lockup ends. If it's any consolation, at least their CEO was able to dump some shares at a higher price. It seemed like stock was headed for new highs until they had the secondary.
Will we see a decent pop before Dec 23. I think we all know that things will never be the same after this date. It's easy for momentum traders to manipulate the stock when the float is small.
Hasbro stock was taking a beating. Dreamworks was asking for too much. Usually, once they call off the deal, the deal is dead. Otherwise they face a big risk of major lawsuits. Sorry, stock is headed back to low 20s. Dreamworks is damaged goods. No one is gonna want to buy them out.
I don't think you have properly assessed the financials. Inventory is expected to go up as the company ramps up production. Also, as the international sales ramp up, the inventory should go up from cars in transit.
When looking at the financial position, you need to look at the current assets to really see how they are doing. From 3/2014 to 6/2014, current assets actually went up by $300M. From 6/2014 to 9/2014, current assets went down by only $80M. Things don't look too dire.
TSLA is a momentum stock which can for extended periods of time trade at much higher valuations. Just look at NFLX and AMZN. Getting too fixated on the valuation leads to missed opportunities to make money on the upside and losing money by trying to short the stock at the wrong time.
Saw some bursts upward as people are anticipating strong rally upwards. But honestly, we have not seen the face ripping rally upwards. If markets cooperate, we will see a high volume sustained mind boggling rally upwards. Just look at Amazon today. No news but huge rally upwards. This is gonna happen to TSLA soon. Today, I made quite a bit but I felt I had to work a bit for it. Volume really wasn't there. I was a bit nervous we would see a fade. But stock made its way up and was forgiving to any early entries.
You have got to love the markets right now. Near 52 weeks high. Generally positive sentiment. Market can be flat but you can find a stock or two that's making a strong 3+% upwards movement on no news. Santa Claus rallies ineffect. My top stocks I'm watching very closely are TSLA and LNKD. Trust me, I'm not a perma-bull. I really dont see the point of focusing on short positions.
Its all about the story, and the story is still intact. Don't expect significant earnings until Model 3 which wont come until 2-3 years. Until then, as long as they continue to hit their sales milestones ( which they have continued to do so), they will get a free pass.
Each day above 50day means stock is technically getting stronger. Watched for breakout which didn't happen today. I executed flawlessly this morning. Bought tons of weekly call options. Put trailing stop loss order in place. Got stopped out pretty much near the peak. Will watch for breakout again tomorrow. At this point, I think the only things that can bring stock down are 1) general market downturn, 2) analyst downgrade or negative news. If market takes off, stock could also take off. With market in upswing near 52 week highs, market could takeoff in next few days.
