We're seeing a shift in the economy that further separates people on the basis of skill level. Highly skilled workers in STEM are in demand and low skill workers in service industries have little off-shore competition. People in the middle, that used to work in factories in semi-skilled positions are being squeezed by off-shore competition as well as increased use of technology.
And to think I was pretty sure I sold at the low, taking a huge loss, at 2. Unfortunately some folks are going to have the same feeling about selling today.
Goes to show you that good news really isn't. Everyone who bought and held yesterday is in the red. Unfortunately investors learn and the next time there is good news, expect no one to buy.
So the individual who demands facts is not obligated to provide any facts? What sort of political game are you playing?
Long time before there is a squeeze. Average price for shorts is well above current levels. They may make less profit, but won't have a margin squeeze until price goes above their short sell price.
Nice summary. Moving toward profitability (AMZN had years of moving toward profits and shares moved up steadily) and increasing cash flow bode well for the future. It would seem that once markets stabilize, we should see some more buyer interest in FEYE.
Missed revenue estimate, but judging by the price action since the last quarter, nobody believed those estimates. Unfortunately, that is the headline: missed estimates.
Looks like going short on both is going to be a net winning trade. Anything between 10.70 and 14.30 is a profit, and based on AH action, both these numbers look safe.
And a new low share price to go with it. There are some companies that have their good numbers ignored and so-so numbers highlighted. FEYE is one of those.
They are finally coming to the conclusion that if you are going to drive the price down, you're going to suffer as much as anyone else and then it is just a matter of who can withstand the most pain. In the US, at least the consumers are happy. In the Middle-East lower gas prices don't have a positive impact on consumers.
DDD is trading just a penny above the low for the day, i.e. everyone who sold today is feeling good about their decision and everyone who bought today is regretting it, at least for the moment. This is like an IPO that starts off above the IPO price and then gradually just declines. This isn't the signal we want to see.
Weekly options expire tomorrow and of course there is an 8.50 strike. Not much volume, but we've all been trained to gravitate to a strike price. It just keeps happening earlier and earlier each week.
I find it interesting that on the one hand there are incentives to lend and invest, and on the other hand we have more and more restrictions on lending. Only the most well capitalized companies are getting loans and what are they doing with the money? Buying back stock. That doesn't put anyone to work.
It is becoming more and more difficult to move an individual stock up or down, given the number of industry specific ETFs and funds. Too many people are selling baskets of stocks.
Gold value is whatever it will buy. If it is worth $5000, but $5000 will only buy a loaf of bread, it is worth a loaf of bread. Granted, it is not likely to be worthless, but do not compare its value to dollars. Better to compare it to a basket of goods that it can buy.
FED can't operate in a vacuum. Has to consider what all the other nations' banks are doing. Negative rates in Japan and Europe in comparison to possible rate increase in the US? Whatever the FED does, someone is going to get hurt.
For fiscal 2103, DDD reported revenue of $513 million. If the current qtr forecast is expanded to a year, the coming year revenue should be about $730 million, or about 20% higher than in 2013. Yet price in Jan 2014 was about 75 and it is now about 15% of that. I know that expectations drive share price, but exactly how much were investors expecting when they paid $75 per share? Conversely, why is an increase in company revenue expectations receiving such a tepid response now, with shares below $9?
