The BullMarket doesn't agree with you.
"Right now, while it appears the SEC wants Linn to make some adjustments to the way it presents some non-GAAP data, the changes look more like semantics than anything else. None of the numbers have been changed, and it's easy to back out the new metrics to get the old DCF number. Importantly, it also looks like the distribution or future increases will not be impacted in any way by these changes.
The S-4 filing is a long document, and we'll look to scan analyst notes later to see if we may have missed anything. However, if the above adjustments are the only big changes that come out of this, then we'd view it as very positive. Our "Buy" rating and $36 price target remain unchanged."
My condolences to all the traders on the wrong side of the tracks, especially that sheephead dude. On second thought everyone but that sheephead guy. Congratulations longs!!!! I wonder how many fools will be posting how they are building more short positions today. You can lead a horse to water but ..............................
The only thing I like better is SEX. Sorry Apple but keep working in the labs I think you have a legitimate shot some day:)
"Here's what's strikes me as strange about all this: No other smartphone manufacturer's sales figures are subjected to this kind of scrutiny.
Take, for example, Samsung. You won't see analysts questioning Samsung's unit sales numbers for the Galaxy S3 or S4. Nobody writes notes to clients asking what percentage of those sales were sell-in or sell-through.
Samsung doesn't get this kind of scrutiny because it doesn't tell anybody -- not analysts, not investors, not the SEC -- how many smartphones it sells.
And that's what's wrong with this picture"
How about that $440 short a few weeks ago you posted. It's hard to comment about a post when you keep changing your numbers. Just can't trust wooly animals these days.
Is that what the tea leaves tell you? I bet you are WRONG!!!!!!! PS They have Prep H on sale at K-mart, you might want to stock up.
Looks like that $481 short is doing as well as your $440 short a few months ago. I'm glad you live with sheep instead of a real woman because she would have booted you out of the barn a long time ago.
Let's see selling more of the expensive phone with higher profits and less of the cheaper phone with less profit. Sounds like good business sense to me.
He found a used pair of boots at a yard sale and has been busy in the barn tending to his herd. I guess it helps deal with all of his trading frustration he's encountered these last few weeks.
I'm hearing Mr. Sheephead is a bit under the weather. He apparently had emergency surgery to remove a piece of fruit from his hiney that oddly looks just like an apple. He was heard muttering the words I shorted Apple at $400 right after his anesthesia was administered.
You might want to tone it down a bit or else Nurse Ratched will take away your internet privileges again. Now go take your meds!
So it's going to drop 20 bucks after a beat? Only in your make believe bizarro world. Look for upgrades soon and downgrades for your portfolio.
Revenue rose 9%, year over year, to $395 million, yielding EPS of $1.26.
Analysts had been expecting $384 million and $1.19. That is what you call a beat.
