    A magazine, I think Red Herring, alluded to HLIT as being a good takeover candidate. It is possible that takeover speculation maybe fueling the stock price.

    Sold the rest of my shares. I'm out.

    Company insiders, directors and others can sell
    stock only during a window following the quarterly
    earnings report. What you are seeing is just normal sales
    by insiders hoping to cash out some stock options
    following the nice upside move. This is absolutely normal,
    and nothing to worry about. The insider selling
    window is also partly why over 70% of stocks deflate
    after earnings reports.

    RMBS has a thin float,
    so any selling in the open market affects the price
    significantly.

    Please, please, keep shorting. It will really
    help us longs when you buy back. See, we benefit from
    your shorting either way: if the stock goes up and you
    buy back at a higher price, the price appreciates
    further. On the other hand if the stock goes down and you
    buy back at a lower price, it helps arrest the
    decline of the stock. I love shorts!

    Rambus stock price is a story of hope. There is no evidence that anything has changed in the last week; some analyst somewhere just replayed the same monotonous old story.

    My next weeks prediction

    by couch_trader Mar 14, 1999 9:06 AM
    sirosh sirosh Mar 14, 1999 3:08 PM Flag

    Often, a secondary offering is very good for the
    stock price of the company, and INSP will certainly
    benefit from this. There are several reasons why it is
    positive:
    1) The new money will help Infospace expand rapidly
    and acquire other companies.
    2) Investment
    managers as they try to sell the stock give the company
    lots of visibility
    3) Increased float makes it
    attractive for mutual funds to buy the stock and decreases
    price volatility

    Usually the price stabilizes
    for a while around the offering price of the
    secondary (which probably is close to 60), and after a few
    months starts climbing.

    There will be a bounce off in the vicinity of that
    price and a settling down before it shows any
    consistent uptrend.

  • I have been saying on this board for a while that
    RMBS would go back to 85 before going to 120. Now that
    the correction has happened I see lots of bullishness
    going forward. Expect RMBS to hit 120 in a short
    while.

    Slip before earnings?

    by Absolute_Idea Jan 8, 1999 1:46 PM
    sirosh sirosh Jan 8, 1999 6:58 PM Flag

    Rambus has a very conservative CEO and Board and
    will not split their stock until they are sure that
    they can deliver on the promises of their technology.
    Going by their annual report and the statement of risks
    therein, a stock split seems almost certain not to happen
    this quarter. Maybe next quarter, as things shape
    up.

    Enlightened management do not split stock for short term
    gains. They have long-term interests (such as options
    vesting in 4 years), and have no reason to create a short
    term bubble which might burst easily and ruin investor
    faith. But when Rambus does split the stock, it will be
    a very positive event, showing management's
    conviction of future success and I would recommend investing
    in a big way immediately.

    ThinCRAMER,

    You are falsely talking up the
    stock. All employees of Rambus have very strict
    directives on not to divulge any inside information. Rambus
    has even developed a reputation for being extremely
    tight lipped, and has clauses in their contracts with
    their licensees to prevent leakage of information about
    how their technology development is progressing.
    There is no way anybody would have told you that the
    stock is splitting.

    So, cut the
    bullshit.

    Joseph

  • Notice the low volume and lack of enthusiasm
    inspite of MS upgrading the price target. People are just
    not willing to buy much at these levels. Just like
    many people on this board, a lot of people are waiting
    to buy as soon as the stock dips to 85 or so. A dip
    like that is bound to happen soon, after which a lot
    of people will buy and then RMBS will make a nice
    run up to 110. So, sell into strength, and get back
    in when it goes to 85!

    I'm out....sold my RMBS....good luck to

    Technical analysis would suggest that unless the
    market turns ugly, the bottom for Rambus will be close
    to the previous top. Another rule of the thumb is
    half of the previous advance. So an optimistic
    estimate would put the bottom at 80 ( (60+100)/2 ), and a
    pessimistic one would put it at 70 ( (50+90)/2 ). If the
    market goes south big time, all bets are
    off.

    So is anybody still interested in postin

    sirosh sirosh Dec 2, 1998 10:18 PM Flag

    There is a fallacy in your statement that large
    institutions and shorts always buy at close. If that were the
    case, stocks would only go up at close. Index mutual
    funds (e.g. S&P 500) are the only ones that execute
    buy-at-close orders regularly and that is because they have to
    track the closing price of S&P-500 and because they
    have to put all the money they get during the day to
    work.

    Instead, what really happens at close are trading
    arbitrages (by short-term traders, institutions or hedge
    funds) that seek to exploit inefficient market behavior.
    These arbitrages simply exacerbate the price movement,
    irrespective of the direction.It is not a sign of buying by
    long-term holders, but rather a sign that lots of
    short-term traders are piling on.

    PUT CALL ratio - anyone care to comment

    by jdaasoc Dec 2, 1998 8:59 PM
    sirosh sirosh Dec 2, 1998 9:54 PM Flag

    Usually the put/call ratio is a bullish
    indicator, especially when the put/call ratio is
    consistently high over a week or so. Otherwise it has no
    meaning, and probably is a simple effect of short-term
    trading on market inefficiency.

    BTW, unclewest,
    take it easy and do not go overboard with bullishness.
    No stock goes up in a straight line: I just think
    this is a time to sell and get back in when the stock
    dips. On the long term, I'm also bullish on Rambus. The
    company has done all the right things as far as I can see
    (although RMBS is a very tight-lipped company), and both
    Intel and Rambus have ample incentive to deliver on
    their promises ahead of schedule.

    Rosemary44,

    The block trades at the end of
    the day are a classic short-term trading tactic
    (often program driven) to move the stock price, and
    should be considered as warning signs. In general, by
    the end of the day, most of the long-term holders who
    want to buy or sell have completed their orders. The
    traders know that if in the last hour or 30 minutes, one
    can easily move the price by either buying or selling
    rapidly because by the time the rest of the market reacts
    the closing bell would have rung. Why do this? The
    reason is to profit from market inefficiencies using
    derivatives and arbitrages (not from the stock itself).
    Stocks with a small float, and with a reasonable amount
    of investor enthusiasm are great for such trading.
    Most often, the traders are using automatic buy/sell
    programs to rapidly execute orders. For the individual
    investor, the problem is that they work both ways: they can
    profit by pushing the stock up or down depending on
    market sentiment. That leaves very little time for you
    to react on evidence of weakness, unless you also
    have a computer program hooked into the
    system.

    Great time to lock in profits, guys! The current
    wave of stock market euphoria is petering out. Any bad
    news (on economy, Asia) hits stocks like RMBS hard,
    and we'll have a chance to get back in at a lower
    price as soon as this wave of euphoria has
    passed.

    Actual earning is 16c per shear

    by galandar Oct 14, 1998 9:20 PM
    sirosh sirosh Oct 15, 1998 12:18 AM Flag

    You forgot to subtract the tax on the interest
    income. Look at the following calculation:

    INCOME
    BEFORE PROVISION FOR
    INCOME TAXES 11,947


    Provision for income taxes 4,420
    -------
    Tax
    Percentage 37%

    Interest income, net 1,130
    Tax on
    interest income (37%) 418

    Therefore, net income
    after taxes, but excluding interest income and taxes on
    the interest income should be:

    INCOME FROM
    OPERATIONS 10,817
    Provision for income taxes
    4002
    ----------------------------------------
    NET INCOME 6815

    Basic earnings= 6815/37,143
    18.34c
    Diluted earnings = 6815/40,348 16.90c (~17c)

    Not
    too bad. And first call consensus was only 16c (Zacks
    is usually higher, because they do not sample as
    many analysts).

    Here's an example of a stop-loss order: MSTR is
    currently trading at $36. You believe that MSTR may gyrate
    quite a bit around this price, but you want to sell out
    if it goes below $26. So you put a stop-loss order,
    good till cancelled, with your broker. The order stays
    in the system and if the stock goes below $26, your
    order automatically becomes a market order, and your
    stock gets sold. If on the other hand, the stock stays
    up, your order never gets executed and remains in the
    system. This way, you protect yourself from losing all
    your profits out of some unexpected
    event.

    Hey, how about this investment strategy: lock in
    profits quickly, hold on to losses tenaciously. Now that
    should do you well, don't you
    think?

    Not!

    Joseph

    PS: The right strategy, of course is to let your
    profits run and to take losses quickly before they become
    worse.
