Hey Flam, thanks for your technical read! I see you've been retaining all the data much better than I. Weekly I tend to skim countless SA authors on SA for a gut feeling but don't try to retain much of the mountain of electrical engineering info. About the time I'd have half that stuff figured out it'd all change or I will have moved on to another stock/sector. Last few years prior to this I learned way more than I ever cared to on a bio stock I owned going bankrupt. Most of the minutia knowledge I stored on that is worthless now, as is often the case after you move on from a stock. All I know is this 3D Nand seems to be a cornerstone going forward for the semis and MU isn't scheduled to really be in the market until 2016. I do think our other core business will start driving the SP before then, after 3Q earnings. But, naturally it would be much needed security for investors now if MU/INTC can announce 3D Nand sooner than scheduled and also do a good job of keeping us informed on it. Thx again. kg
flamoir, do you know: what might be the reporting requirement for a company to keep stockholders informed when they buy back converts? Has anyone here been tracking how MU reports this (upon sale, end of month, quarterly and in what medium?
Good luck bottom fishing for 25 again! Ships now on a slow steady cruise to get past 3Q and beyond... No more negatives to drive us down to 25 (barring overall market corrections)...

Hi Cody. (dunno who down arrowed you!) Excellent topic. Wish I knew. Wish I had a direct line to MU telling me when after they buy. I guess no transparency until they do. Agree not good to buy around 27 then see it drop. On the other hand, we don't know if they've already bought when it was below 27. Also, 27 might be as low as she goes or stays clear to 3Q. Especially if they plan to come in good shape for 3Q... kg
That's pretty much how I see it too "27.00 - 31.00". Unless they accelerate the 3D NAND schedule and/or announce something new at one of the next three conferences(below). My gut tells me "other chip companies earnings" right now will be lackluster at best. (the general economy and high US dollar) So, not much help there. Ditto on your, "If they beat and do not lower guidance next quarter then MU is off to the races. " This is what I'm counting on. This is what I'm counting on. People buying at this 27 level will be in good shape come 3Q in July.

Beginning of this week there were so many new id spammers here! I wanted to "Report Abuse" but realized there's nothing to Report because their content is satisfactory according to rules/filters. Also realized blanket Report Abuse in this situation puts a flag on my id for possible misuse of the Report Abuse, ha!. So, I'm just using the Ignore. Be nice if Yahoo would add a Report Pests link as well... kg
If you watch the indexes and major funds, Telecoms have been a leading sector for the past month or so. I am sort of clueless on the telecom sector (VOIP sector) but it is the overall telecom sector that is going up, which VG is a part of (rather than the other way around). However, I also know that VG has a solid history of beating quarterly earnings and is likely to again this quarter. What's concerning is how VG lifted recently to a 4 yr high $5.20 and now having trouble holding $5.00. If, the beat is certain I wonder why the closer to earnings the more the daily lows, hmmm!

Hey, that works too. Nifty tip! Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Creature of habit is a serious flaw of mine, ha! Thx! kg
bcorshort, Why would you short BCOR when there's zillions of other better known stocks you'd do better shorting? Makes no sense you being here, unless, of course, you're a paid msg bd hypster!?
Vincent, you are my hero! Thx for giving me that tip. I'm now able to get back to my BCOR bd! I recall learning that trick on another stock sometime back but never thought to try it. You just made my day! Thx! kg
How do you know 3. Tax Software given away for Free? Source please.
As a mid term hold the BCOR SP should get a pop after the tax season revenue comes in and reported.
Long term, I agree with knowlegdeger1 (below). The value of BCOR is worth by far more than it's SP trades at.
I own BCOR stock and have not been able to access this BCOR msg bd in Yahoo for over a year! The link 'Message Boards' on the left hand side of the screen is grayed out/inactive. Someone on another msg bd just helped me get back here by pointing out you have to, "go to a different board then punch in the symbol in the box for "Get Message Board For", which I just tried for the first time and Voila I'm here again! Think how many other BCOR stock holders don't know this and would like to be here!
Does anyone know why Yahoo grayed out/inactivated the link? Would Blucora have requested it?
