46, I have to respond to your post instead of the ignorant reply by DumBunny as he's on ignore.
Sp Dumbunny, as ALWAYS, you have a hard time with your replies as you can't seem to reply to the POINT of the initial post but rather reply to a sub-topic offered by 46. How you got through life is beyond be as most NORMAL persons can speak to a point, address a point, stay focused on a point and comment on the point. As always you seem to find more value added in conjuring up your own topic within the context of someone else's post. Here's a suggestion. Want to introduce a sub-topic? Start a new thread!
Back to the initial topic.
46. At least I'm not alone in my observations. Some regulatory body needs to put a halt to the regular, prime time showing, of the same sex, mixed ethnicity trends that Hollywood is fixated on presenting to the youth of American as being the new normal.
I'm confused as to that it means to being an American any more. It used to mean that there was a common sense of country. That the populace had a purpose in common and a national pride in standing for something. Today, not so much.
I have no idea what the Hollywood Motive is for the dilution of the American family. Talk about a bully pulpit. They control the airways and in my opinion, are polluting the nation with some ill-conceived agenda.
Over the last 4 years the white, mid aged male, has taken a beating on 60% of TV commercials. They take on the position of the buffoon, the nerd, the gay, the stupid. This has been a progressive campaign to lessen the importance of the white male as the emphasis is to "diversify" the customer base into anything that's NOT a white male.
Well our advertisers have taken on a new angle. The couples they show now are becoming substantially "mixed". But the really sad news is that the white male is shown less and less. It's now black husband-white wife, or, gay couples. It's getting harder and harder to find a "normal" couple.
This is not a racism post but one that's to inform. It's a heads up as to what advertisers are doing and how they're trying to influence society by making the "normal family" a HUGE divergent from what previous generations are accustomed to.
If this is news to you then you need to take your head out of the sand. We already have a disproportionate number of TV shows on the airwaves that are now obligated to have a gay or Les couple as part of the casting. That's to suggest that EVERY American family has a gay or Les member to it. I don't know about you, but, I know of no gay or Les families. How can the US viewing audience be clamoring for that relationship mix when such a small % of partners are living that life style?
I for one, am boycotting any company who's advertising campaign portrays white males as clowns. Where babies, toddlers, and kids show the white guy what to do, how to do it, and why the WM is so ignorant for what a baby already knows. I'm boycotting any company who allows advertising which shows 4 different ethnicities in a commercial, and, the white guy is a buffoon in each of them.
Enough already. There's got to be a better way to integrate the value of other ethnicities without making the middle aged white guy look like a bozo.
Here's a thought that Yahoo might consider. (of course they won't!!!!)
Yahoo takes in money from Seeking Alpha and Motley for the opportunity to place "news" (cough, sputter) under each equity. Perhaps we should look a little deeper into this relationship?
Who, if anyone, looks into the individual finances of the Fly, or Seeking or Motley staff in to period just before or after one of their "news" releases. What's to prevent the Authors from posting blatantly self-serving garbage to benefit any position they might soon desire?
The SEC (and all their faults - there are many!) requires certain reporting for actions taken or statements made. Who checks on these phantoms-of-the-daylight check for accuracy and content. But mostly their rag is an opinion. That which can be bought into or devalued by the reader. I'm hoping that each reader of ANYTHING on the Yahoo Boards do so with only a skeptical eye. To put ANY value into these collective sheisters is to believe in the tooth fairy, Santa, or, fairness in the legal system.
I'd love to see the stock / option actions of the editors and publishers of these resources on the days surrounding their "contributions" to the Finance Board.
Yul Brenner in the King and I, or, RFMD hit the low 5.3's and it's time to head back to 4.8X.
It's NOT rocket science. NOR is it the broader market and RFMD just happens to be an equity. No, the pukes had themselves well positioned for this inevitable plummet and are reaping profits (again) on the ride downward. They are seemingly "stealth" this time as they can blame the broader market downfall for the drop. That's what pukes do!
So hang in there as 4.8X will soon approach. The you can make the jump in as the risk: reward will favor an entry at those levels.
NOTE: In case you haven't noticed, RFMD heads down fast and furious. VERY infrequently is the a gradual drop in price when the broader market is negative. that way they can hammer the price in a few days, all the while the retailer thinks this will be a momentary impass that will soon retrace. I'll tell you from experience. By the time you realize that it was time to get out, only 3-4 trading days have gone by and RFMD will have dropped by 50 to 60 cents (A large percentage drop!)
The charts don't lie and it doesn't take a PhD in the market to observe a channel (again, still, once more)
I'm not here to support or bag on RICK, the equity. That's a job relegated to a few of the nut-jobs on this board who post gibberish each day. I am here to remind the readers that Yahoo Finance gets income from allowing rag (hearsay, innuendo, gossip, and manipulated reporting) to be put-to-print are factual and solely intended to inform. No, there's a wealth of anecdotal evidence on the Yahoo Finance Boards where a release of negative news is met with a huge jump in price the very next day(s). Likewise, there's a wealth of "news" releases that are hugely positive on an equity in which the stock price gets pummeled the next day(s). My assessment is that 75% of the "news" allowed on Yahoo are manipulative in nature with the intention to "head-fake" the reader. BTW. If you think I'm seeing things, just look at the HUGE negative article by S.A. yesterday, and, look at the action of today!!!!!
After all it IS pre-reporting time and the gamers of RICK come out to play at this juncture. Look for progressively increasing volume and an associated increase in price. My hope is that the antics of pre-reporting will have a reason to HOLD the price upward after reporting. Only then can RICK morph from a toy to a growth stock that has "real" investing moving forward.
I've been out of RFMD for many months now but still watch the antics of the pukes as they deal with RFMD the same way today (and yesterday) as they have for about 6 years.
It's no longer uncanny, but rather it's now a forgone conclusion, that any news releases about RFMD products, when RFMD is in the 5.3X area, will be met with a contrarian movement the very next day. And so it happened again, yesterday. A suggestion that RFMD has a significant win into a (Samsung?) new product had the price escalate through the day, and close at the high. (S.O.P. #1) The head jerk that happened this AM at the opening was as transparent a saran wrap (S.O.P #2). This was of course followed by a day-long drubbing of the share price (S.O.P. #3). And there you have it. The umpteenth time that a positive news release was met with a DONWER the very next day.
The only thing that's missing (S.O.P. #1.1) is the Form 4 filings by Wizard Rudy that she sold X number of shares at the top of yesterdays action, or, snaked a few thousand at the peak in the opening half-hour of today.
At this juncture I see this a comedy as I'm watching from the bleachers. (The sidelines are dangerous as one might be swayed to re-enter this game-played-equity.)
Carry on (And hold on. But better yet, move on.)
