EVERY single hospital abuses [over]charges to Medicare and Medicaid. Maybe they will ALL be dumped too. It has far less to do with competition, and more far more to do with long standing relationships, and how things have always been handled... right or wrong.
but heck, maybe you are right.
Good Luck and have a great weekend.
really.... You think they will dump UTX in ANY stretch of 'your' imagination?
You are either very young, or very naïve...
but Good Luck, I'm cheerin' for ya!
...and here we sit at a 52 week low, after yet rewarding more than a million additional free shares...

... a mere 45 dazes [SIC] ago...
mad world... sad world
Look, I have NO IDEA of UNXL's current production state. I do have a rough idea when components need to be in the channel to make production schedules. I also know that timelines, especially in technology, can be critical to adaptation/utilization. It is pretty obvious that ATML is NOT exactly taking the touch sensor market by storm... I know I am NOT suppose to ask questions like this, but it makes me question exactly what is hindering market acceptance?... Both companies are ultimately affected by this answer.
I would say that would be a great accomplishment... as long as any revenue and profits didn't ALSO need to be booked under a different name, by a different company, being bound not to disclose.... agreed??
most people could stand consuming about 25% less food ... don't ya think??
(actually I do agree with you... but I'm right too)
how did I earn a thumbs down for ASKING A QUESTION?!? Are there some questions that aren't suppose to be asked?
... now THAT might indicate ... well something!
"Especially when you KNOW there are TWO working manufacturing facilities"
so are you expecting their touch devices to be on the shelves, and available for the holidays??
well you are braver than I am ... I am thinking the ~43 (or 38) range needs to be revisited first
my red thumbed friend...
are you unhappy with message (in which, I whole-heartedly agree), or the messenger(s)??
Dismissing without context, is consistent with what shareholders have put up with for more than a half decade.
and it is shameful.
"I remember ..."
me too. It was the ONLY TIME I ever recall a pre-market CC by this Atmel Management team. It is high time the future of this company is put in control of a management team with credibility, and the capability to execute. I am still waiting for the promised end of "take or pay" dividend... two years and waiting. The sales mix outside of Asia, hasn't increased. The 2013Q4 CC was yet another excuse. Compared with what has gone on during the Laub years, I wonder how much "travelgate" really cost shareholders???
On the positive side, they AT LEAST are going to have the Q3 CC before the end of the month... I HIGHLY reccomend, if they have ANYTHING positive to report, they move it forward.
People move to Florida to die... you'll see.
(my guess is you will being using WAY MORE than 53% MORE electricity for the AC ... but it might even out discounting Heating Oil, or whatever) If you are set on FL, my advice (FWIW) is the gulf side.
(I too live in CT, @ the CT River and Sound ... I think I am staying put)
Good Luck and have fun.
re: "Unfortunately, the State of CT will share in my gains"
"....I love taxable events, it means that I made a profit"
Part of loving taxable events, includes sharing your gains!
I am no doctor, but ya sound a bit bipolar to me.
So if you can look past my grammar errors,
in the absence of this so called 'stock buyback',
the company in DILUTING the stock at the rate of:
!!! ~ 1 MILLION shares/MONTH !!!
let me repeat that...
!!! ~ 1 MILLION shares/MONTH !!!
FOR WHAT RETURN????
this is a company that barely could even earn .01 GAAP/sh, if that,
for quarter, after quarter, after quarter.
This shouldn't even be legal.
My question specifically EXCLUDED the first year of the Buyback program BECAUSE when they moved their HQs, a meaningful repurchase of shares DID indeed occur. However, it skews the true reality for EVERY quarter after that event.
So let's do some remedial math using Peter's numbers:
Net INCREASE of 47million share= 422-(460-85)
Now this might just be MY opinion, but minimally, it doesn't seem that the program is optimally being managed in the common shareholders best interest... (unless you were a recipient of the 47m share INCREASE, I suppose)
And the punch line is that the average repurchase price over the last three years was more often than not, significantly higher than the low price, for that quarter... and the average price of those 85m shares, are SIGNIFICANTLY higher than even today's price.
Has this management's performance over the last three years real warrant a 407.5m$ (8.67$ * 47m) PREMIUM ??
Accept nothing but GAAP numbers... the REAL kind... the kind that don't require copious amounts of alcohol, nor ignorance, to fathom.
(believe it or not, they will try to apply NON-GAAP mumbo-jumbo to share counts too
... simply unbelievable)
