Thank you for your feedback. If you've followed my posts long enough you'd know that I don't post the "obvious" just to accentuate what's already known.
The cost savings are a given are included in my post only for the sake of completion, not new news. The dividend is almost ALWAYS included in a CC as a "check-off list" item of inclusion. However, the reason for my post wasn't to reiterate the obvious or highlight a CC obligated mention. It's to share with the board the inevitability of a dividend inclusion by next Q. The support for this opinion is that THEY HAVE TO!!! Whereas SWKS has had a divi for a while, QRVO must compete with them at a number of levels. (The reason for my post).
QRVO, the blending of TQNT and RFMD, will see significant cost saving through this merger. The 4:1 split has reduced the total outstanding shares significantly.
SWKS has had a stock dividend for a bit now. QRVO is in competition with that company on a number of fronts. QRVO is now well positioned, through cost savings, product offerings, and broad customer base, to "copy-cat" SWKS in a way that should bring a smile to QRVO investors. Namely, the EXTREMELY likely generation of a quarterly dividend.
No, I didn't read this anywhere. You heard it from ME, first. You can call me nuts after the next Q-reporting if this doesn't happen. (Or some of you can call me nuts anyway, it's just the way you are)
Monrio. MY BAD!!!!
We have somehow posted on this board from 1200 miles apart, within 5 minutes of one another. EEKS. That'll give DBR ammunition to suggest that, you are me and I am you and we are all together. Ko-Ko-Ja-Boo (In a Beatles twang)
Here's my suggestion. (BTW, the board is doing much better in NOT answering DBR's silliness)
The suggestion is to try really hard to NOT answer anything this nutjob has to offer on this board. The topic she writes of are infrequently QRVO-based and ALWAYS immaterial to finances. She appears to read the Penthouse editorial pages for global silliness, then make a sentence worth of comment on it to entice the reader to answer back. (That's how she gets paid)
You'll make a big difference in the quality of this board by converting to a 100% DBR-free-life. Perhaps the revenue loss will effectively self-remove her. I'll not lose (or make) a penny if anyone answers my contributions.
Pinky-swear that you'll not answer her back!!! lol
QRVO just fined an SEC for which addressed some items pertaining to options of the older company. (A modification of the initial filing) Within that filing the mystery of Rocky Holdings is solved. But NOT to excuse Yahoo Finance for their silliness.
If I cracked the code correctly, Rocky Holdings was an old company which used QRVO as the stock ticker. Yahoo simply carried over the old name for that ticker and incorporated the correct daily price action for QRVO (the RF company)
Take a look at the filing of today and see if you agree with my spin on this. If you don't, I really don't care! lol
On the more comedic front. The Yahoo Finance name for QRVO is "Rocky Holdings" for purpose. It's a fore-warning of things to come? LOL.
With TQNT and RFMD merging, the new ticker, and, the "new start" of this equity ticker shows what's going on with the price movement. Open up a 10 day / 1 minute chart. (Yes, I know it's not been 10 days of QRVO). Then look at where the price hoovers, and, migrates to. This is NOT random!!! Enter the word "options" at this juncture of my discussion. Nuff sed!
Try axing for .69 now!!!!! (Sed in an eubonics twang)
I'm hoping that DBR's employers realize that RFMD no longer exists and that DBR can find a new equity to "add value to". (koff, spudder, chok, spitz, gag,. Also sed in an eubonics twang)
Carry on no more.
The single institution (or well financed few retailers) have started the game on the way up. I only wish there was someone on this board with balls and money.
The play is to bring up the shares on relatively low volume into the PM. During that time a short volume is accumulated and is covered into the close. NOTE: Only about 20% of the trades are on the open market as the "not held orders" are killing the natural progression upward. Someone with balls, and a desire to make a LOT of money, needs to BUY into the late AM and shake the #$%$ out of those with the short positions. These few pukes are controlling the price and are being allowed to cover their short play uncontended as the volume of buys doesn't FORCE them to buy in at a price which is NOT OF THEIR choosing. Left uncontended, they cover at their leisure and to their gain. A late AM volume with shake their world and force a short squeeze. It'll also put the fear of God into them that this equity can bite them at any moment. (That's what a market is, right?) Currently it's not a market but a "very few" personal toy.
Let's change the game people!!!!
BTW. I listened to the CC and was surprised to hear that LA was sold. (2 others closed!) I'm thinking that was a good thing as Eric hopefully has his finger on the pulse of the industry (certain stores).
Robust might actually pan out to be a good thing. Certainly RCI will buy their own product so there will be a consumer. And to see that they're NOT looking at retail consumers is comforting as that market already has too much competition. But to get into liquor distributor and have that business into commercial usage is actually "ground-breaking". But there needs to be some kind of promotion done. Word of mouth won't work. And I hope that, unlike Bombshells, where RCI management is "winging it" and "cutting their teeth" on a new sector, that there's actually a tried-and-true game plan going forward!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I gave some pretty timely and accurate financial aide. That was my Christmas present to the board.
But, as this is a silly message board, sometimes the diamonds get lost in the BS.
Hope someone took my advice.
Credibility has been established. Remember this for posts down the road.
I hope some of you got in when this was initially posted.
If you're familiar with investing and have an in depth understanding of more than than buy and sell you'll know what is going on with AA. Look at the % gain for the year! Whereas institutions are substantially holding for the long term, there's also a year-end profit lock in for final Q reporting. Those sales have to bring the price down. And there's a picture-of-peace associated with the selling. MOST of you are seeing a precipitous drop. AA is NOT experiencing that. What IS HAPPENING is that institutions are submitting "Not Held" orders for the MM's to fill. As the MM's can't dump 40M shares on the market at once, they have to work the order(s) in throughout the day in a way to maximize the customers profit, and, NOT #$%$ the market. When to see the last 1.5 weeks of price action you'll recognize what's transpiring.
That was the good news, AA is not falling off the face of the earth. Now for the bad news. Where the bottom of this gradual profit taking ends is the question. Looking at the chart, it looks like support is at xxxxxxx. (sorry, this is a message board). But a chill pill is needed. Want to be a smart investor? Average in over the next 2 weeks. The selling will be done and you won't be sorry for trying to time the action. AA is already down over 6% in just 3 trading days. The downside risk is much lower at the low 16 point. If you can manage to accumulate into the high 15's, you'll have a happy 2015 as AA will see $20 during the next year.
Hope this helps.
Look at a 6 month chart and read the tea leaves!!!!
As ATML is a controlled equity that runs in a channel, it's time for the gamers to retreat the direction. (As if we didn't know what the pukes are going to do!!) The funny part is that they'll start the down under stealth conditions. On a day where the broader market is flat-to-down .5%! This stock can't hold an increase from mid 6 to the current level without a gammed retreat.
Go ahead. Someone explain to me, with all the fervor in the tech sector, and, the product mix of this company, that the price should retreat NOW! I'm impressed that the 6 month chart-goal has been achieved and it's not time to game it backward!!
For some reason my reply didn't stick to the thread. (gotta love Yahoo censors)
See if you get the point here.
I must be a moron as I haven't a clue what you've added. As for Johnny-come-lately. I called Sprint personally and read them the riot act on their advertising angle within the first 2 weeks of the start of the campaign. (Perhaps others have called as they ship-canned the campaign.) I'm also on record of other posts which have tried to enlighten the viewing public of the subliminal replacement of the white male in this current 2014 society.
To you I say take the blinders off and see the tidal wave of mis-information. Not ALL relationships are bi-racial. Not all white males are idiots or gay, buffoons or incompetent, or in need of a toddler or adolescent to show them how to do something.
Llook at the Christmas advertising campaign for Wal-Mart this year. What should we take home from ANOTHER black male/white female presentation. Are there no black females out there to partner with their black male counterparts!
The unions for the fast food industry wants $15/hr for their employees that work at the airports. I want TO BE FAIR and NOT political or self serving.
To do this would be to set up a "class system" for (substantially) unskilled labor at the airport, and the other class off site, in which the VAST majority of the employees in fast food work.
First, when last I left off, pay was commensurate with education and service provided. Not "because we can"!
Second. Do we want a 2 tier payment system. How long before the "off-site" employees want the same pay? And how much later will a Happy Meal be $6.00? Fast food is ALREADY overpriced as what you get for the dollar is measly. (A "meal" which is a small fry, a small drink and a small burger is already $5!!!!
Third. An HUGE number of airline and airport employees already get a huge break on the cost of food at these sites. The green card is a uniform and the cost is anywhere from 20% off, to FREE!!!!! So how can the airline union employees back this nonsense as it doesn't effect those that would vote (or support) in ANY WAY!!! I'm a firm believer that the cost of airport food (and drinks) are already OVERPRICED. Tell me that the employees would get a 20% increase in pay and the price of a burger wouldn't budge????
PLEASE don't support this movement as it makes NO SENSE from a lot of angles and only serves to up the ante for unskilled labor. Want $15/hr???? Go get some additional schooling or a trade. Not ask the patrons of the airlines to "stick em up"!!!!
BTW. My grammar isn't as bad as it appears. I'm typing on this small laptop and the curser randomly flys around the screen. I won't go back and fine tune the entire submission.
I wanted to bump this as it's appropriate to continue the dialogue. Forthcoming is either Kudos (they hit 16) or the woodshed beating for getting it wrong.
A follow up is in order. Re: the short position. As of 2 weeks ago RFMD was held at 19.6% short. That's a HUGE volume which needs to be covered. Perhaps that explains the price movement, in additional to the broader tech sector. Keep in mind that short reporting as a delayed number and could have changed dramatically since 2 weeks ago.
The original post was done on Nov 3rd when RFMD was just at $13. That's $2 (15%) in a month.
Unless there's an institution that knows something, I can't see anyone holding short, the initiation of a new merger. They'd have to know that the merger would fail going in, or, "sell on the news", which can't be excluded from the conversation.
Stay tuned as this is going to get interesting. Remember LONG ago when TQNT and SKWS were at the same price? Even if Qorvo closes half the current gap, that's serious money.
You racially biased clowns! Great job of jumping on the bandwagon. Removal of all white male roles in commercials. Even Helen Keller can see the movement towards suppressing the influence of the white male. (Oh, unless he's gay or an imbecile, then it's OK for those roles on TV.
I hope you bozo's go under. You could have easily played it down the middle. You chose the path of self destruction (I hope) I'll NEVER use your service. Next time don't hire Al Sharpton as your creative advertising representative.
Looks like things are moving forward. The BLOB has been extracted from the Robust web site as the spokesperson. (Spokesblob). He's been replaced with a bunch of pictures of average looking ladies. (Sorry ladies, just keeping it real) Not sure what (or who) the "face of Robust" will be but I pray that it's creative.
I'm thinking that scantily clothed ladies has been touched on already. How about a celeb? One that's liked, no shady background (Bill Cosby is out of consideration), has a sports background, and crosses all racial lines. Perhaps Charles Barkley?? (He's still a blob, but at least he's naturally colored. And the star is about his career and his celebrity, not on his face. LOL) And the spokesperson should be paid on commission. They get a % of sales instead of selling the company's soul in endorsements. (I'm available BTW)
The stock activity has been peculiar over the last 2 weeks. Can't help (won't help) anyone here as it's anyone's guess where this goes after the Q report. I do hope that management comes across as knowledgeable, confident, and under full control of the numbers, AND, where this company will be heading. (After all, not so long ago we were just T & A clubs (of WAY TOO MANY names to have a national connection. Unless that's not important, or, a legal protection to singly isolate each shop)
So Eric, how about hitting it out-of-the-park. And don't forget the HIGH likelihood of a special unannounced dividend.
This is the latest idea to calm the savage citizen. Be careful what you ask for.
What if the results of those efforts confirm the shenanigans and mis-behavior of those that are crying about police actions. What if an overwhelming number of videos suggest that these hoodlums ARE at fault???
I'm wondering if there's preparedness for the likely conclusion that the officers ARE mostly acting responsibly. They'll no longer be the "gang" to incite an issue as the facts will stand out clearly.
Don't mandate wearing of body cameras if you're not prepared to see the truth (on both sides of the camera). Talk about racial disharmony!!!!!!! What if the Brown-esque citizens are captured on film as the cause??? Then what?
