Just curious how many still are loyal to the brand
believe it or not this looks like the bottom to be like Nokia went to 2 or 3 look at it now and they sold their phone business. I think John Chen will turn this company around... Top notch manager better late than never...
it is 6.50 give or take I will reference this post later to prove to you I know what I am talking about...
Bottom is in. John Chen will turn this around you will see.
They have a good product they had poor management.
Apple is giving them a chance to come back.
Check out the following stocks ABX NEM SSRI PAAS SLW or GDX the ETF of all miners all down huge due to the news of Mexico and Barrick and newmont and POG but HECLA is UNCHANGED that tells you at least someone sees value here. I say that if there was ever a time for this stock to catch a bid it's now...
prevent new mines due to environmental concerns..
(SEE EXK TODAY) and remembeer austrila tax on BHP Billiton....
Barrick and Newmont are scaling back expansion plans just reported yesterday and today..
SSRI and Barrick got creamed in South american projects.
I predict Silver Wheaton will get whacked when their south American mine welches on it;s deal to sell silver at 8.00per oz. This is more likely to occur the higher silver prices goes..
The shortage of new supplies and the taxes on the output mean good things for hecla whose mines are in US and friendly Canada. A surge in gold and silver is assured as Janet Yellen who is Ben Bernanke on Steroids takes office.. So I say this is a n excellent entry point for hecla who is reopening mines and has low expectations it has been a long wait but every dog has it;s day and money coming out of overprcied stocks is going to find it;s way to the largest silver producer in the US eventually..
Hecla is insurance for the guaranteed destruction of the US dollar by the Fed/imo.
So here we are at 3.10 or so I will reference this post when we break 4.00 maybe 5.00 by January 2014...

Google held its Q2 2013 earnings call on Thursday, reporting an impressive $14 billion in revenue, as well as detailing the ever-growing popularity of Android OS.
Larry Page, Google's chief executive officer, gave a speech during the call, in which he repeated that consumers were making the shift from laptop to mobile in droves. This surge had created a "tremendous opportunity" for Google, Page explained, noting Android device activations have hit 1.5 million per day.
"That’s pretty amazing given the first Android phone launched less than five years ago," Page said - while also bragging that Android had hit 900 million activations worldwide.
Android's 1-billion-activation milestone look as though it could be right around the corner at this rate.

As for apps - Android devotees have downloaded over 50 billion apps from the Google Play store. So, with Google Glass, smart watches, game console systems and more running apps these days, downloads - like activations - will only continue to soar.
None of this is new information, of course, as the same Android stats emerged at Google I/O in May. Still, it is always interesting to hear Page reiterate praise.
See the chinese are buying the android tablets
1 more thing is that the manufacturer whose environment is open and not proprietary eventually wins out even if their technology is not superior..
This was painfully found out by many manufacturers like Sony with BETA
My Sons girlfriend had the Blackerry then she switched to the IPhone
She wouldn't be caught dead with the Blackerry once the iPhone came out...
But guess what now she has moved to the Android and suddenly the iPhone looks old and dated...
It surprised me that Rimm made thei numbers for 2 quarters after that but I think this is how the dfistribution channel and inventories work. Now I say Apple is into the first quarter and maybe has 1 left after than watch out the fall may not be as intense but the Android Phones are now King and the tablets are now taking market share...
You won't listen to what I am telling you like the people on the Rimm board who were in love with their phones
but those who read this will REMEMBER I told you this !
I will reference this post in 60 days to show you I know what I am talking about and you look up my posts on the BBRY board for when I warned them of the iPhone a bout 1 year ago...
This is because the average consumer who does not have a lot of money in the stock market bubble is running out of disposable money to spend due to hidden unreported inflation especially food.
This results in less credit card transactions going forward and leaves this stock overpriced with pe of 24
and many of the people using them are opting out as it takes too much time in addition there is no easy way for them to really make money unlike google for example
You know I am right don't you ?
Visa is red !
Starbucks is red !
Retail spending is negative...
Big Ben has given the top 5% money but the little people got the inflation..
Now they are cutting back on food stamps which will leave the little people less money to spend on gasoline...
By the end of the week, the price of LNKD will tell us which scenario is the choice of portfolio managers and traders. A break below $220 will spell trouble; a break below $193 will spell big trouble. If $220 holds and there is a bounce above the 50-day which holds, then LNKD will have lucked out once again. In my book I called it "Lucky LinkedIn," as it had this same chart profile in August 2012 and an earnings surprise saved it. That surprise may come next quarter or it may not...
I say it does not as the market for this is saturated....
I dare you !
that's exactly why it's overpriced because it is no longer growing double digits and was pumped to the moon.
pe 25 9% growth this is the definition of an overpriced stock lets call it 198 ah lets see where it is in 90 days many are going to give back their gains as the common man is tapped out by hidden inflation and retail sales are negative and won;t be going higher imo I will reference this post to prove to you I know what I am talking about...
growth rate it will be 100/share and it looks like the retail sales are falling so expect less than 9% next quarter.
Have you been spending more this month than last ?
