To guide higher. Klac guides lower and missed earnings and it doesn't go down, ilic guides up, and its actually flat or down from a week ago. Sometimes its better to lose $$ like amazon, and then the analyst can spin the future, and a true valuation can't be put on the stock
I just frustrated that the spin never stops . I like to go long stocks and short stocks, do research and prosper from the bs analyst put out there. Klac warned last art, I was short, made some $$$ and even though they guided lower the stock keeps going up. So now they miss and it will get hammered for a couple of days, but the shorts have been pushed out. Now they have warned again for the next qrt but it will be ignored again also. No way you can short stocks when they miss estimates, lower estimates for the next quarter, and the stocks still go up. Things have changed with the fed backing everything
Not a good art. Last art when they announced they warned that this art was going to be weak because of push outs, and the stock went down. Unfortunatly, the analyst community doesn't do their job anymore, and the stock has gone up 20% in the last few months on more and more upgrades and other bs . Now klac misses this art and guides down again, but the market won't let any stock go down anymore for more than a few days. Every time something goes wrong, the analyst come out and say its a buying opportunity, instead of saying we made a mistake and the stock is overvalued. All the equip companies are trading at close to all time highs, yet intc' and the other big chip companies aren't raising cap x . Once amat comes out with their qrt bag of lies things should be ok as the spin will start again. Hope klic can hang on till then
Seems to be stuck between 14 and 14.50. It has tested the 50 dam twice in the last month or so and bounced back up which is good but it can't break thru 14.50. If it can hold here till earnings with a good report maybe we can get to 15 and hold.
Funny how it stopped at 14.03 again the next day. computer was down yesterday, but put in order at 13.85 , this morning. Looks like I might get this one. Market way overbought !
Fed cut the growth rate again. How many times has this happened in the last 5 years. They raise the outlook, the market goes up, they cut the outlook, the market goes up. Earnings are raised, the stock goes up, earnings are lowered, the stock goes up. Something wrong here. And once again, there is no inflation ! I wonder where they get groceries. Must just go out to eat , but that price has doubled also. The spin is unbelievable, from one end of the gov to the next, and no one called out on it.
Yesterdays action wasn't the best. Hit 15 and sold off on big volume. Wish it would have held its ground a little better. 15 will become a big test going forward. Its been so long since its been there, it comes as no surprise
All semis hitting new highs, and smh is up over 25% in 6 months. Thats a lot for something that moves slowly and contains a lot of companies. Lam has gone wild hitting all time highs, while klac is stagnant. Is business really this good ? Its almost time to short intc again, but its on another run higher. Happens every few months, goes up for 2 months and then down for 2 months, slowly both ways. Semis are the place to be now, but I missed this run. Still holding klic but nothing else in the sector
I read a headline yesterday that said the market was up because after the 1st qrt neg growth, growth going forward looked promising. " The negative growth was caused by a extremely cold winter which was caused by global warming ". Give me a frickin break . This global warming bs by this administration is getting a little old. Kerry even came out this week and said our #1 concern facing the US is climate change. Amazing how this 1 degree change in over 150 years is so dramatic all of a sudden
Way above the 50 and 200, and with klic and the big spikes its tough to read. 13.50 will be pretty much 1/2 retracement on that last surge with that being the last high. Might be a good place to add some more but with summer coming up and the market looking shaky, I don't know
Thanks for the info, always a plus if they can get a head start on products and let others follow. Can you imagine klic actually trading with a forward looking pe, instead of being stuck in the single digits for years
Looks like your spam theory is in full swing ! I've sold about a 3rd , and looking to hold the rest. Just don't know if I can do it or not. Patience is not one of my better qualities. Just not sure if it can stay above 14 for very long
Weekly claims go up to 340k new filings for unemployment, while the monthly jobs added are around 175k, and they say things are improving. That's new claims every week . Not hard to do the math. I can hear the King now, we've added 2 million jobs since I've been in office but he leaves out the part that 50 million have filed for unemployment benefits
I sold some more this morning, a little early it looks like. Maybe this is the spike we all have talked about for years. I too, bought when it was at or below 2, but sold when they hit around 5. Everything I have left now, is in the 11's . Hate to sell anymore but this pop has been a little fast
