I am afraid to short this stock pre-earnings. AMD has a monster short interest and retail longs will say "Oh the price is going up, I better buy in or I will miss the ride", thus causing the current short squeeze. This is like having an argument with someone who sticks their fingers in their ears and screams "NANANANA', this is no winning.
If the run up is due to hype and retail shorts covering, why not buy now and short on earninga day? This is following the exact same pattern of Q2 and Q3, not saying that historical precedence is a reason to invest, but it seems that retail longs still believe AMD can turn things around. I am skepical of this, since there best quality is that they have a monopoly on a low margin, low volume gaming industry and are non existent in the mobile industry. Good luck longs, maybe this time "it will be different" and AMD won't dissapoint.
Also, as more retail shorts cover, more retail longs will have the "oh its on the way up I better buy so I dont miss the train" mentality. I believe this exact same thing happened q2 and q3.
Do you believe short selling will continue into earnings? I don't expect that a bank would issue a downgrade/upgrade this close to earnings.
In my other thread I asked why this stock is suddenly moving. I asked if people believed it was similar to the q2 and q3 run ups, I was immediately labeled as a basher, called an idiot, a POS and told I have been ignored. What?
I was long AMD until Q1 earnings of last year. I saw that the huge run up due to console sales (low margin, medium-low volume) was unwarranted, since I assume it was mostly retails thinking "gosh, they have a monopoly on that entire business". I am now simply wondering what has changed? AMD's biggest factor is that they have a monopoly on a low margin, low volume industry. They are non existent in laptops and mobile devices. Maybe the server industry will save them?
Are you being sarcastic? "Another billion in revenue from the Apple mac Pro." I wasn't aware that the Mac Pro was a high volume device. Anyway, it's not like AMD suddenly won the "lucrative" Mac Pro contract, and now their bad fortune will turn around. Are you aware that last generation of Mac Pro also used AMD?
Is this going to be like the last two earnings, where there was a lot of hype and run up, and then huge crash on after earnings? I saw it was up this morning. Surely this is jot due to the China console ban being lifted. We have known about that for half a year.
That's my theory. Retail longs didn't want to pay capital gsins tax on until 2014, so a large number sold at open.
Tesla longs KNOW this stock is going to $1,000,000 a share. If they buy even $1,000 in Tesla, then they they can make $5,000,000+ while they can only lose $1,000.
When I call out this mindset, longs accuse me of bashing or being a case of sour grapes, yet if I used the exact same logic in say, blowing my paycheck on the powerball/megamillions, they would call me a gambler and chastise me. I wish Tesla longs would calling themselves investors and instead say gamblers.
The bubble phenomenon is so prolific that they have a term for what is currently occurring. "Return to normal". The slightest of news will send the stock up, every retail long that didn't say a peep between the crash and.now is suddenly back to the "Tesla is a revolution". Its almost some sort of.gamblers fallacy, the way longs rationalize this stock. They are more afraid to lose out on potential gains then they are afraid to lose their investment. This alone is not that bad. In the Tesla retail long situation, its more like the members of the peoples temple that witould rather commit suicide in the chance that they would reqfh nirvana, rather than live. Greeted has clouded your mins. Unfortunately, every retail long I have talked to refuses to listen to reason on this stock. You are no longer investing in this because you feel that it is undervalued. You are investing (speculating) because you hope others will buy in after you. This is similar to.a pyramid scheme. An unsustainable.system of growth, where or course the guys at the top of the pyramid make huge bucks, but when it crashes, everyone else loses. Good luck to all.
This was in the statement released by the KBB. I thought someone on this forum worked in insurance and was saying that the model s has a much higher than average rate or vehicle fires? I still maintain a sell rating with a price target of $110. Just wondering if model s is actually safer, fire wise.
I have not been following any news. Should I sell? What's been going on?
The shirts are supposed to.be the smart ones. Posts like this make you look as sensational aw the longs. Tesla does not have a car to test. Why did you post this?
This stock has years of growth already priced in at these levels. You shoyld have invested sub 50. The bubble popped. You missed out.
