    Cisco CEO: Obama's Plan Will End High Speed Internet As We Know It:
    If internet companies can't make money on high speed internet, they aren't going to invest billions to build faster networks, Cisco CEO John Chambers warned when talking to Wall Street analysts on Wednesday.

    He was telling analysts that President Obama's plan for the internet would be bad news.

    To recap: Obama wants to categorize the infrastructure that deliver internet services as a " Title II " utility, similar to how telephone utilities operate.

    Alcatel stock has lost about 20 percent this week

    PARIS (Reuters) - Shares in telecom gear maker Alcatel-Lucent (ALUA.PA) fell 7 percent on Friday, extending a recent slump, after U.S. rival Juniper Networks Inc (JNPR.N) became the latest technology company to issue a warning on sales.

    Juniper cut its third-quarter sales target late on Thursday, reflecting what it called lower-than-anticipated demand from service providers, particularly in the United States.

    "Juniper has mentioned that U.S. telco operators have invested less than expected," a Paris-based trader said. "This is clearly a negative read-across for Alcatel's core segment and this should not reassure investors on the company's capacity to improve core business."

    Alcatel stock has lost about 20 percent this week, hurt by mounting worries over the outlook for the sector, which has prompted hedge fund short sellers to increase their bets on further losses.

    According to data from Markit, 11 percent of Alcatel shares are out on loan, up from 6.6 percent at the end of 2013, making it one of the most shorted stocks across Europe

    I road this down to a dollar 2 times and it is oversold just like before. When there's blood in the water the sharks really eat ALU up as long as the trend is down. We will see when it stops but my bet is over the next year it goes back up again just like before.

  • Alcatel-Lucent SA (NYSE: ALU) largely missed out on the recovery rally on Wednesday. The culprit may be that BofA Merrill Lynch reinstated coverage with a Neutral rating. The 2.40 euro price target effectively left little upside as well. Merrill Lynch was positive near-term, but warned that 2015 expectations for margin and revenue were too high.

    The Merrill Lynch team feels that the SHIFT turnaround plan appears on track. Still, the elevated revenue uncertainty from a slowing US capital spending story and other issued drove the firm’s 2015 expected earnings before interest and taxes would be about 18% below consensus estimates.

    The Neutral rating is based upon Alcatel-Lucent shares underperforming year to date and based upon a 13.5-times 2015 estimates earnings. The only real bright news here is that the firm thinks investors should look to potentially revisit the case in the first quarter of 2015.

    The report indicated,

    “Management is more than halfway through its SHIFT turnaround plan. The company has largely wrapped up balance sheet repair, and we estimate around 400 million euro in fixed cost cuts, 600 million euro in asset disposals and 600 million euro in debt reduction/refinancing to go before management can tick all the boxes on its 2015 goals in the SHIFT turnaround plan…. Second half of 2014 estimates appear largely de-risked now reflecting slower capex at AT&T and Verizon. However, we are concerned about the company’s ability to hit 2015 street revenue expectations. Here management’s revenue target for Core Networking of 7 billion euro seems demanding… Overall a softer demand environment makes slower margin progress more likely… we prefer to see 2015 margin expectations reset first before potentially revisiting the turnaround case.”

    ALU & EURO both hit a 52 week low

    Your right about the Euro going up not giving ALU proportional increase but It makes ALU products more expensive so that may be a negitive.

  • The Euro drop is not helping an already weak ALU. Euro is dropping every day I heard it may hit a par with the $$ which would kill the PPS but I that would make their produces very cheap.

    As per a recent Reuters report, a government spokesperson has been quoted as saying Ericsson AB (ERIC) and Alcatel-Lucent SA (ALU) have formed a consortium and submitted a bid for this project. We believe that other major telecom vendors like Nokia Networks (NOK) may also follow suit.
