    1.70 IS NOW SUPPORT

    50/50

    The increase is actually not that dramatic, and only those with ultra huge stakes would consider a 3 to 5% jump a signal to take profits. That time is coming around, but, I would imagine it will be at a higher number than 1.75, considering that the slow down in the 1.60's was apparently explained away as profit taking.

    The question now becomes what it has been all along:

    Will we get to $2.00 before earnings, and if yes, how fare above that will this stock reach?

    Finally, if earnings are good, does $2 go to $2.50, $3, $3.50....?

  • Transformation to a single high-performance Internet Protocol-based network will improve speed and performance of video, social networking and other services while dramatically simplifying operations

    Dubai, UAE, 22 January 2013: With an eye on the proliferation of mobile data and broadband, du announced a partnership agreement with Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) to deploy the latest in IP-routing technology to achieve convergence in its telecom services.

    Demand for high-speed broadband access, IPTV services, mobile video and more is expanding dramatically in the UAE. By deploying state-of-the-art IP routing technology from Alcatel-Lucent, du will eliminate the need to manage multiple networks, simplifying network operations. Under the terms of the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent started deploying an industry-leading solution (IP/MPLS), as well as providing du with a set of comprehensive professional services that include project management, network design, installation and commissioning, software integration and operations.

    "Convergence of fixed and mobile networks is a logical evolutionary step in our growth story. This stems from the increasing propensity of our customers to access everything from a single device," said Osman Sultan, CEO, du. "We believe Alcatel-Lucent is well positioned to share our vision in bringing the most cutting-edge services available in the UAE, with industry-leading intelligent solutions which will delight and surprise our customers, and further enhance our network efficiency."

    Here's how Alcatel-Lucent's solutions will help shape du customers' experience:
    Power du's next generation multiscreen TV service, which will enable du's customers to access du TV on their smartphone, tablet or PC, using Wi-Fi or 3G to create a true 'TV everywhere experience'. It will be powered by Alcatel-Lucent's Multiscreen Video Platform.
    Ensure du's coverage from a 4G LTE perspective, using IP-based technology. It will provide transmission services solutions for projects from small-medium enterprise size up.
    Empower business customers by offering end-to-end and high tech solutions that need bandwidth up to 1Gbps and beyond.
    Dramatically boost the speed, performance and availability of du's home services, business and mobile broadband services.
    Beyond just consolidating services onto a single network, du will be able to take advantage of intelligence within Alcatel-Lucent's routers to deliver enhanced residential video and business network services, with the support of capabilities such as video optimization and Application Assurance, which can guarantee that services are delivered with the right quality levels.

    Ben Verwaayen, Alcatel-Lucent's CEO, said: "The UAE is a very dynamic market, and we are thrilled to expand our position as the leading IP vendor in the country. The new IP network we have deployed for du gives them an important and simplified tool for addressing the explosion in broadband data, and the embedded intelligence allows them to offer differentiating services to their customer base."

    Under the terms of the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent is deploying its industry-leading IP/MPLS solution, based on its 7750 Service Router (SR), 7705 Service Aggregation Router (SAR) and 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM). Alcatel-Lucent will also provide du with a set of comprehensive professional services including project management, network design, installation and commissioning, software integration and operations.

    Last month, ALU and du successfully deployed the first phase of the network with several sites across the three main regions (Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Al Ain) now carrying mobile traffic.

    :D very logical!

    That is why we are carrying out this dialog over a Citigroup common stock chat board.

    Well, ok. I let you worrying about Stalin and his invasion. In the meanwhile, I'll be doing my technical analysis and profiting.

    However, if you like, I could give you a few tips... for a small capital gains fee.

    ok, man.

    just go shoot yourself. Actually, that's a joke.

    But, please, please don't go and shoot up your local Denny's after your rally in an attempt to protect the "great" american constitution from the socialist and obama.

    you seem like the type, so i want to put this fire out before you think it's some novel idea.

    people kill. guns allow people to kill. no guns = less homicides.

    hunting vs. hand guns and assault rifles are different.

    it doesn't matter. the issue is to long gone in the USA for change.

    But the point is that current laws allow for reckless fools to be bringing loaded guns into the public and accidents do happen. Also, crazy people have access to guns as well where the incidents are not accidental.

    1.68 will soon turn to 1.69, which should edge up to 1.70. Hopefully it will close there. If not, you will surely see that in the after hours.

    patience my friend. patience.

    I typically Europe waits a bit to go wild to see how the Americans react. Often, America runs crazy out the gates on such news.

    However, I expect to see gradual growth to 1.285 euro even without this news.

    :D Like the Goldman Sachs goof. options are a strong indicator on large volume stocks, but as we are learning today, it is not the end all be all of what dictates the price because for every million or billion dollars that one investor or investors wish to see drop, there are equally a million or a billion dollars worth of investors on the other side that are going for the opposite.

    In other words, if it were that black and white easy, we'd all be multi-millionaires by now.

    this is a title of a Motley fool article. Judging by the price movement today, I would have to say, I guess so. Just posting this because it may relate to the out of the blue downward push in ALU of yesterday, or it may just be a positive sign. Could just be a bad day at the CES. Hopefully, those cloud presentations go well.
