  • The Fresh Market has solidly broken its uptrend and is well below the 50-day and 200-day moving averages. Seriously doubt it has found a bottom on this downturn. Company still growing revenue (rare in current market) and will do all right long term, but we have to wait for our entry point. Looks to be too soon.

  • You see it in every message delivered. All of the shorties are having their gonads handed to them and it may get worse before the week is over. These folks may be sterile before that time. If they cover soon enough, they may in time be able to re-establish their reproductive organs.

  • Love the fact that CREE has developed a far better product, but the jargon attached to all the new lighting bugs me every time I stock up on the best available. Used to be able to go to Lowe's or Home Depot and know exactly what I was buying, now need to get a lighting expert to help with my order. Why don't we have a better way to explain the product? From a product explanation standpoint, CREE and others in the industry have a BIG COMMUNICATION'S PROBLEM!! This is meant to be constructive critical remarks. Edison and GE had the current people beat by a country mile in explaining the products of that dying industry. I could go to the store, pick out what I wanted and be on my way without any help. I wonder how many other people have been bugged by the new products??

  • NLY may be the California Chrome of the year. Looking like a thoroughbred for past five months, above both the 50-day and 200-day moving average and not even half the companies can make that claim at the present time. I'll be happy with another 17% gain, especially if you throw in the dividend as a bonus. Time for folks to stop crying in their beer and consider that fact that they have a tiger by the tail!

    If you try to figure out the nuances of manipulation by professional traders, you will end up in a mental institution. CREE is not the first. It is how they make a lot of money. So the advantages of being public (mostly better exposure to the money markets), must be balanced with private ownership. A company with plenty of cash, though, does have a real choice. Remember, the manipulators work both sides of the street. They not only work to drive down prices, they work their butts off at times to send the prices through the stratosphere. So your best course of action, if you really know the company and its finances, is to sit tight and wait until the worm turns.

  • Research firms Needham and D.A. Davidson have upgraded to buy in April, 2014. Of the 20 analysts who follow the shares, 3 have a strong buy, 5 have a buy, 9 say hold and 3 say underperform. The P.E. is now at 24.8 based on earnings for the next 12 months, not high for a stock with the growth record like CREE. But anyone who looks at the chart for the past 3 or 4 years will know that it has been quite volatile with some sharp rises and sharp declines. If one has a strong stomach and likes the science behind the company, my feeling is that you hold until the chickens come home to roost. We'd never put more than 5% in ANY tech stock with a story like this one. Even so, we can think of a lot worse places to put funds.
