How could HP hurt ddd more than ddd does to itself?
ddd can not get it products to the market place. If you can not offer products and other companies do...well?
ddd was a powerhouse but has lost its footing. The price of this stock says it all.
Well jdsu isn't worth knowing anymore. Other companies in this field report and go up 25! jdse goes up 2 quarters and will fall hard again. Honestly this company is insignificant. Really almost no organic growth with one of the big buildouts in history, puny leadership.
Really jdsu where's the beef?
You all should be fired. I would have you all on the street.
my head around thst number. The stock is selling for 12.90 and there is 10 writeoffs per share.
Cream doesn't float to the top with this company.
How have them stumbled so badly???
Chief Executive Thomas Waechter did reiterate the company’s commitment to a spin-off of the optical business rather than a sale, explaining that with a spin-off, shareholders will get an incremental benefit from the progress he expects to see in that business over the next two to three years.
"shareholders will get an incremental benefit".
With present management running the company it means microscopic.
the poll they took said that most in the field did not see the relevancy!!! They were waiting to see what would develop before buying. Now is that a winning method? That was their presentation and that is putting a positive spin on it.
Smoke and mirrors for jdsu. On their FB page someone is trying to sell back to jdsu some of their products!!!
No one else wants them so will anyone here at FB want them? Another poster points out that the market cap went from 100B to 3B. A 97% loss. So it isn't just us on this message board that think jdsu stinks like month old
A major competitor emerges in the Test & Measurement business as NetScout acquires a Danaher unit.
Pressure is likely to mount on JDSU’s management to enter into M&A discussions regarding its NSE unit.
The NetScout – Danaher deal was achieved at 3.1x 2013 sales, significantly above JDSU’s current multiple (1.5x).
Now jdsu having had a pretty much clear field and a "moot" now faces a big competitor. jdsu in the best of times can barely make any money. History tells us that now with a hungry competitor they will loss market
It seems that the only fiber at jdsu will now be in the food.
Management and corporate culture needs to change. If this was the Spartans at the Battle of Thermopylae... jdsu management are the deserters of the Greek forces. They have no shoulders to the shields, no push and in total disarray, dropping their weapons and running.
I hope you are right, But a company needs to get its products to the marketplace and patents don't do that. Management does and this one doesn't. Shameful lack of leadership
All the jdsu executives could be played by Jonathan Harris.
I disliked him very much.
The big disappointment for me then was that we got Lost in Space but NOT Star Trek!
What an evil universe we live in. LOL
they want to have shareholders benefit! WHAT???
Shareholders would benefit? (Yes I know that the activist would too)
I get my money back and I am out of here
or am I being naive???
fire them all
Wow this could be extreme.
Now with the dullards at the top of jdsu... they will wake up to this in the next ten years and instead of selling assets will be paying top dollar for mediocre companies. It's all about movement with jdsu... not direction, or marketshare, or efficiencies, as long as management is trudging along like nearly dead desert survivors looking for their mirage, they are happy.
LOL survivor's remorse... none of the jdsu trudger's thinks about it ever... ONLY the shareholders think about it instead after each and every dead-ish quarter.
I vote to dump them all. The company could run better with no leadership than these bozos. Put the janitor in charge. I would cut off my nose to spite my face rather than keep this management.
You can count on jdsu, if they sell, selling below market rate.
?Competitive bids? That means management has to actually work.
Management always without fail goes in the wrong direction.
