    Merck is more possible in negotiation for a buyout. Maybe the quarter earning delay due to this?

    After my prediction on Sep 25: "Chinese company Lenovo's offer may come at $10/share for BBRY."
    now Lenovo signed NDA, and will eventually buy BBRY at $10/share as I predicted, even though it is just a prediction. Buy and hold.

    Check my anothr prediction "TSLA and SCTY make a good business sense for the future"
    on Sep 6, 2013 5:20 AM - those two stocks shot up through the roof. SCFTY still have room to go up because of it will 80% rise power production and next year and the 23% short have to cover..... targte? $80/share.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • It bought IBM PC business before, and It has the money and infrastructure to take BBRY assets for their mobile aspects, just my two cents.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Clean energy products are the future. SCTY engages in the design, installation, and sale or lease of solar energy systems and TSLA will eventually use the solar energy produced from SCTY with their electric car products and super charger networks. This is a future. Simply speaking TSLA will be the biggest consumer of SCTY; TSLA is doing great and so does SCTY. See the great vision of Elon Musk, the big picture of the future!

    I would expect that FSLR stock shoot up from this news! That is just a simple elementary school math: First Solar have bought 50- megawatt solar energy for 5.79 cents a kilowatt- hour, and can sell it for 12.8 cents per kilowatt-hour average price for coal plants, and then they can make 50 x 1,000,000 x (12;8 - 5.79 ) / 100 = $350,5000. While this is not much moneywise, but it is greatly significant since it a turning point for the fact First Solar actually can get cheap solar energy than the currently dominantly-used coal energy, they will gradullay take energy market share from traditional coal energy manufactories. FSLR reached $311.14 /share on Mar 12, 2008 when solar energy just showed some promise, and now the promise evidently becomes a reality. It is definitely a great time to buy into FSLR, sooner is better, on my opinion.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I takes a couple of years , after all the market opened up in China, Mexico, Brazil, Africa, etc. This year earning expected to overt $4/sh , even FSLR was dou8bled in last 6 month, it will double again in the next 6 months. and then double again probably every year. Just buy and hold, do not watch it everyday, you will be happy at the end.

    it will be 10:1 split, I guess. Last time 4:1 at a price $89?
    Conservertively speaking, a good earning from the holiday season plus new products anouncement and a 10 for 1 split will explode AAPL back to at least $600 if not $700.

    Hendi Susanto, Gabelli & Co.: Reiterates a Buy rating on the stock and a $950 present value, projecting revenue last quarter of $54.1 billion and EPS of $12.32 per share, on sales of 43.7 million iPhones and 26 million iPads, including 6 million of the iPad mini, while noting that the iPhone count is consistent with “higher supply chain capacity and wider distribution channels.” Susanto is projecting sales of 38.2 million iPhone units this quarter, but does not provide full financial estimates for the quarter. As far as valuation, “AAPL shares are trading at 5.5x and 11.4x our FY 2013 EBITDA and EPS estimates of $65 billion and $48.00, respectively. We calculate a FY2013 PMV of $950 per share based on our 14x forward P/E plus cash.”

    Peter Misek, Jefferies & Co.: Reiterates a Buy rating on the stock and an $800 price target. Misek is modeling 53 million iPhones sold last quarter, and revenue of $59.6 billion and EPS of $15.50. He thinks this quarter’s outlook from the company may end up being “slightly above consensus” despite Apple’s legendary conservatism in forecasting. That might mean an implicit forecast for 40 million or more iPhones this quarter. Misek actually cut his March-quarter estimate from 48 million units to 44 million units, in part because rumors about another iPhone refresh this year could stall some sales. But he thinks the discussion of production cuts missed the mark: “As word of the earlier production schedule starts to spread, we believe we could see a slight slowing of demand CQ1 in anticipation of the new product launch and Apple will likely start curtailing channel inventory. Therefore we tweak down our CQ1 iPhone shipment estimate from 48M to 44M, which is still well above widespread fears of shipments in the mid-30Ms. These fears are based on large CQ1 component order declines, but we believe the primary drivers are: 1) an assembly bottleneck caused component inventories to rise in CQ4; 2) new iPhone builds starting in March; 3) demand be

    William Power, R.W. Baird: Reiterates an Outperform rating and a $750 price target, writing that as regards a projected 20% drop in iPhone sales, quarter to quarter, this quarter, is “the front-end loaded nature of new market launches is the bigger issue than slowing demand.” What he means is that the iPhone 5 showed up in countries faster this time around than with the 4S: “We would note that Apple launched the iPhone 5 in close to 100 markets this CQ4, vs. the iPhone 4S in 50+ a year ago. The 5% sequential iPhone shipment decline from CQ4 to CQ1 a year ago might have been closer to 30% if launch timelines were similar to this year. China alone was a significant driver in CQ1 last year, and will benefit CQ4 this year.” He’s modeling 48.5 million units last quarter, up from his prior 46.7 million-unit-estimate, and cut his March-quarter estimate to 39.5 million from 43.5 million.

    Shaw Wu, Sterne Agee: Reiterates a Buy rating and an $840 price target. The company’s December-quarter results were likely in line with the Street, he thinks, at $54.4 billion in revenue and $13.70 per share in profit, based on sales of 47.5 million iPhone units. The demand for the iPhone “remains robust,” he argues, and “We believe there is great confusion with press reports of order cuts and weak demand.” In fact, writes Wu, the reports merely point to improved manufacturing yields and Apple shifting suppliers. Wu thinks that improved yield could help gross profit surprise to the upside last quarter: “We are modeling gross margin of 38.7% vs. expectations of 38.3% and guidance of 36%.” Wu sees Apple giving a stock forecast for this quarter, and he’s modeling $44.4 billion in revenue and $10.99 in EPS, on sales of 38 million iPhone units. “We have to admit that this upcoming AAPL earnings call has got to be the trickiest as far as we can remember because near-term stock direction will most likely be entirely driven by investor sentiment.”

    The fact is opposite - short is anxiously covering based on the short position 95.40M, it was about $105 millions a few days ago! The put moption is indded increased, but that was not bears action, but the long used as hedge, the put top option price will increase as long as the stock price goes up further. In this way, long can guarantte to get at least the gain at the put price. As short continue covering, the stock price and so the option put strike price will increase, RIMM will go up a big time!

  • Only yesttoday alone, short lost about $38 millions, for the last month or so, they lost $600 millions!
    Check yahoo key statistic of the short position, it reduced to 95.40M, only less than 10 millions had change to cover under near $12/share. All the rest shorts have to be covered to avoid loss much more based on the coming BB 10 and actually a couple of other new smart devices releases base done the compeltely rewriten superior ONYX OS, RIM could make itsself the number one and bigest smartphone before, it can make this happen again with the new inventions in the coming superior competitive products. Long hold your share tight, RIMM will shoot up much quickly. Target $16, $25, and eventually $48 within 2013!

    RIMM goes up to $13 is extremely conservative view. Due to the great potentiial with new BB10 release, millions loyal customers, and ciost cut, etc,, RIM will do much better next year and so does RIMM share price. We can expect RIMM to $25-$45 next year. Short will have hard time to cover if long hold shares tight.
