Its pitiful, its just money trading hands and some jerkwads getting rich at the expense of some hard working engineers and shareholders. 35M is the icing on the cake here and a complete slam to anyone who believed they had some "value". Im glad i never put much into this stock, despite my love of their products, im just not that daring. I feel a little ashamed that i rooted for them to pull something off so long though
Odd thing is my friends at Toshiba went hush hush about OCZ about a month ago, I wasn't quite sure what was going on there, but apparently they have just been talking about paying off herc with their assets
Ill look into it, they only gave me 500 bucks the jerks lol. Checked my overall for all OCZ bought and sold at this point, I lost 280 bucks in the past 2 years lol. So glad I didn't jump on it when that huge drop came, figured it was done
Yeah my comment was sarcastic. Well guess ill take the 800 bucks left and invest it in something else completely insane =) Well if they let me
I think because they sold 0 drives in 2008 to whatever they sell now, its basically infinite growth right?????????
Im taking this as a rhetorical question. You realize he just posts this #$%$ because he gets paid like 2 cents every time some idiot decides the next 5 minutes of his life are perfectly ok being wasted.
RS: We need to do something guys, cash is hard to come by, sales are bogus, our reputation is tainted
Jess: But we go to all the trade shows, i even let guys take pictures with me, they love us!!!
AM: Im pretty sure we need more patents guys, maybe some patents
RT: Well i got nothing, these books are a disaster, are you sure i shouldnt keep smokin these numbers?
WE: Cmon guys im opening up huge channels, look ive pushed 67 drives through new channels in Ecuador and Guatemala!!
DL: I have this one guys. I have an idea thats going to blow your minds, we simply to slap some Panasonic labels on our inventory and dump it in Asia
RT: Now thats the classic OCZ tradition!!
Jess: But those Asians are more interested in their anime girls than real ones!!
RS: Banana crackers? Im in!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Well i imagine the way he thinks about it, there are 2 types here, bashers and pumpers, so basically if youre not bashing....you know the deal. You know im a pumper, love my ocz stuff! Too bad the company is run like #$%$ and the industry is fierce
I think they are forming strategic partnerships personally, i sense a strong relationship with Toshiba here, and they need to have something to back themselves up to procure nand in the quantities required to improve margins. We are at the point here where they fold their hand, or lay down a flush, there isnt really much left for them if they just hold their position.
Storagereview is a legit site, its not a rumor site like Sierraworldequity or theregister which were the two who were claiming there was an STX buyout. Good luck with your short, its working out for you so far
Still on an old rig for anyone in the know. AMD black 3.4 DC unlocked to a quad, 7850 vid card, 8Gb of gskill mems, Antec 900/Antec 550 bronze PSU, OCZ synapse hybrid with a WD black, and my main rig OCZ Vector. Yeah i have 2 systems, my wife and i both game. =)
Best believe that the BF3 is pulling 530-540mbs on AMD gaming systems, i run one. Im not opposed to Intel, but AMD is cheap and plenty fast for modern gaming, and i upgrade cpu/mb/ram/gpu every few years and never spend more than 300-400 and no issue running cutting edge games. The OCZ drive is a killer tho, load times are awesome. Never going back
BTW this "PR barrage" you speak of didnt start until a full day after it started to run, and you know darn well OCZ never popped much on product release news, and not this much on any prior news regarding the lawsuit. Better look to the leak bro, may be something up here youre overlooking, oh nvm i forgot, youre just another hindsight analyst. Another reason its obvious you wouldnt have the guts to throw down on that drop, cause youre straight up yellow
