    It looks like we are starting that slow, steady grind up to a $3.00 print on the stock price!
    Yippie!!!!

    No names please. The poor girl seems to have some issues. Likely a shut in who has a need for conversations with herself. This happens on these boards.

    You almost can not go wrong with VIVO long if you are patient and play the "channel. Like clock-work the stock price will fall to $16-$18, then rebound to $22.00 - $24.00 on an 18 to 22 month cycle. Pick it up at a time like now and sell it in probably early 2016 and pick up a BBB "bond-like" dividend.
    So easy it is a crime. Anyone "buying" from $18 to $16 while the stock goes down is no wizard. The pattern is so predictable that anyone with half a brain can make money trading VIVO with little investing skill - like me. Time and time again for over 15 years!!

    Just do it! 15% pop the next 3 trading days on earnings surprise then ex-dividend date where shorts close positions just before.

    Tonight may come the most exciting earnings report in two years! The dirty laundry has been washed and it is the right time to make the new team look good. Bonuses get determined now!
    Can't wait, can't wait.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    The next 40 calendar days are setting up real nice for GRMN stock price. Earnings and were on the good side of OK, the company is likely to start talk of a new stock purchase plan for 2015 (that I think requires shareholder annual approval for a "Swiss" company), the overall market looks good, and they sell "consume"r electronic products while the Christmas shopping season will be on and consumers look like they will have money tend and will spend on Garmin's type of products.
    The icing on the cake is a Dec.13 ex-dividend date. Many short" will clout he position3 to 5 days before December 13, leaving a nice chance to see a few days of $60 print on the stock price for any longs that want to sell a little for capital gains.
    I presume your "option" contract was selling puts, the most sensible November trade right now.
    Good Luck

    Thank you for doing the currency conversion. I am looking to raise a little cash and this made a limit sell order easy. I have owned the ADRs a few years - some with a $9.75 basis. 8% more if I wait another 9 months. I can not believe how long it will take for the expected close of the deal. Arbitrage will be interesting since a currency factor (wild card) is embedded. Not a simple time wait.
    Thanks for your post.

    There are two things for the short term - say the next two weeks. The restructuring, with the resultant tax bill that was accrued, will now hit the cash a bit. Cash will be marked down to pay tax later, The second is that GRMN completed their stock buyback and have no money promised to do any more buying. People who want to short will focus on this since shorting is a safer bet without the company treasury able to buy back stock and level the stock price on big dips.
    I am sure the company will announce another buyback. That could be within the next month. The company could not buy stock the past few weeks as earnings were pending. Now they can allocate another slug of money, then continue buybacks. That announcement, when it comes, plus what may be a good holiday sales season in genera,l should cause the stock to close out November pretty nicely. I would not be surprised to see a $60 stock early December. Watch for the buyback news the over next thirty days. If you want profits (say you buy now) you will get a chance for a nice 10% gain in less than 45 days.
    If you are an investor or opportunistic long trader, the next few days mean little except if you want to buy at a decent price so you feel smart come December!

    Good Luck.

    The folks that are short will close up their position the next two days. They do not want to get "spanked" when the earnings come in. Looks like it will be good from at least the Marine segment. On fire with sales from what I see on the Carolina coast.. Hold out for at least $57.50.
