Home Depot is one of the few employers that hires people over 50. That's at least one positive attribute for HD. Give me a week and I might be able to think of another positive for employees. Great company for investors. They get paid for parking their money in HD stock.
For almost all LOW and HD employees, they aren't paid enough to put some money investing in the company they work for. I worked for HD, and trust me you can't invest with them when you're paid $10 an hour. LOW pays exactly the same.
Please explain the 8% pop today, since you have the inside scoop. Next thing you know you'll be complaining about the dividend.
I think there is a lot of manipulation in this stock. My guess is that it's going to escalate much higher a few days before earning report. China is a big country, and QIHU software is increasingly in demand. We'll see won't we?
A company with 100% yoy revenue growth and the shares are half the value they were a few months ago. I invested for the long term; but the short-term fluctuations and down trend have been ridiculous. Last summer it was the "hot" stock to own, now it's cold. When will it turn hot again?
One of the things that stinks in investing in foreign companies is that you're exposed to the currency valuations of that country. Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Spain. Good companies in a bad ZIP code.
Well Bob Satish/Mali/Ramish/neverright et al., I took out what I put into BIDU, and still hold onto double what I invested into it. But let's not quibble here. After all it is a QIHU board, not BIDU. I think it was somewhat destructive for Zacks to write that no news was bad news, when fairly recently QIHU had their earnings report of an 100% increase in revenue. Not bad I would say. Someday I'll make some money on QIHU as well. The valuation metrics are great. PEG at around 0.5, forward P/E in the range of utilities. My average cost is $63. What's yours?
Heavy volume. I hope you're right that its shorts dumping their shares to avoid losing their shirts.
More than double the average volume already today. Lots of selling and buying. I wish someone would have a good explanation. The only one I heard is about shorts getting out before they get squeezed; that doesn't seem likely to me. Anybody have a good reason?
I agree; with a trailing P/E of 13 and significant long term growth prospects, it will head significantly higher within 6 months. It's been punished for things that aren't even related to their business, such as the currency, the Ukraine, what Putin says, etc. I think its more than reasonably valued.
