  • "Following Oracle's annual meeting with financial
    analysts on Tuesday, several analysts said that, while
    they were not downgrading Oracle shares and agreed
    with Oracle executives' rosy outlook, they did not
    expect the stock to mark significant gains in the near
    term because of Oracle's lofty valuation."

    What
    a prefect comment to make if you want to create an
    opportunity to buy at a lower price.

    Could somebody shed some light here?

    You could argue that the earnings shortfall was
    already priced into the stock.

    Also, mgmt's
    assurance that GPS will meet expectations in the 3d and 4th
    Q's has reassured the street.

    JMHO

  • Here are some reasons that Robertson Stevens gave
    for reiterating its buy recommendation.
    Sounds a
    lot more credible than your baseless ranting and
    raving!


    <<<``We are reiterating our Buy rating on Gap after a
    positive meeting with company management,'' said
    Kloppenburg. ``We
    believe Gap's upcoming growth initiatives
    should allow the company to continue to drive at least
    30 percent earnings per
    share growth in fiscal
    year 2000. These initiatives include broadening the
    reach of the Old Navy brand, evolving the Gap
    brand
    toward its goal of possessing a sharper image with
    higher levels of customer service, conducting a wider
    brand roll-out of the company's Internet strategy, and
    a 25 percent square footage growth plan for the
    year.''

    ``We believe the company is well
    positioned to at least achieve our current first quarter
    earnings per share estimate of $0.28,'' said Kloppenburg.
    ``In our opinion, our fiscal year 2000 earnings per
    share estimate of $1.55 could be conservative. We
    believe comp store sales could exceed our
    mid-single-digit estimate and expect to upwardly revise our
    estimates for
    fiscal year 2000 and fiscal year 2001 as
    the year unfolds.''

    ``Our recommendations
    regarding Gap continue to be founded on the company's
    superior execution, which has allowed it to deliver
    consistently solid results year after year and achieve very
    strong returns,'' said Kloppenburg. ``We believe the
    company should continue to deliver above-industry rates
    of profitability.''

    Poor longs! back to 40's and FED coming

    The longs are well aware of the facts, both pro
    and con, for being long GPS.

    The reason for
    the insults is that YOU refuse to come to grips with
    the reasons this stock continues to do well -- even
    in the face of repeated interest rate
    hikes.

    All you ever do is flame GPS.

    You are wrong,
    you know it but you won't admit it.

    Get it? By
    the way, you're ugly too.

    In post #5129 you wrote:

    <<<Good
    call longs but I am still not convinced unless I see
    GPS breaking thru $54. Only then I'll start to
    consider the dreaded word of any short:
    "covering".>>>

    Well here comes 54.

    Of course, we
    all know that you will now find another FAKE reason
    to move your "wall." (That is assuming you have the
    temerity to show your sorry face around here again.)

    You are a fake because you continually move your
    "walls";

    You are a fake because you keep changing the price at
    which you claim you will cover;

    You are a fake
    because you said an interest rate hike would cause GPS to
    crash;

    You are a fake because you always get it wrong and
    then try to change what you previously posted.

  • Watts predicted that Fed hike would precipitate a
    GPS crash.

    WRONG AGAIN!!!

    I doubt we'll
    be reading his sorry posts anytime soon.

    It
    has got to be tremendously embarassing to be soooo
    adamant and soooo wrong.

    I almost feel sorry for
    the poor sap. (Almost).

    I'd bet that a large buyback is in the
    works.

    At these level, NITE is a screaming buy.

    A
    buyback would not only be good for the financial strength
    of the company, it would boost shareholder morale
    and reduce the potential dilutive effect of
    Ameritrade's possible sale of shares.

    I KNOW it's
    coming!!!

    Why here

    by seer546252 Jan 20, 2000 4:47 PM
    texny texny Jan 21, 2000 12:27 PM Flag

    I know what you mean, however, when someone posts
    news about another clothing retailer, that message
    could be relevant to GPS and the wider
    sector.

    I.E. Someone was hyping BEBE here recently. While we
    certainly don't need the hype, there cold be relevance, not
    to mention interest by other investors who follow
    this secton.


    I would note that in today's
    stories for GPS is a Motley Fool article about BEBE.
    (BTW, I don't mean to keep mentioning this stock -- I
    don't own it or even know anything about
    it).

    Good luck.

  • "Anticipating the announcement of quarterly
    results, investors swung RF Micro Devices (NASDAQ: RFMD -
    Quotes, News, Boards) as low as $86, well off its closing
    price of $90.06. But the minute the company said it had
    earned $0.15 a share over last year�s $0.08, traders
    pushed the stock back up to $90.06. Although shares of
    RF Micro continued to fluctuate wildly, when we last
    looked, they were up around $92.06."

  • We may tank tomorrow, but I'll take the
    opportunity to buy more b/c...

    From the
    10Q:

    ``Looking forward, we are encouraged by a number of
    factors. Based on the most recent forecast from our
    largest customer, we currently expect that our business
    with them should grow significantly faster over the
    next twelve months than it has over the past twelve
    months. In addition, over the next several quarters we
    anticipate that at least two other large customers will for
    the first time begin high volume handset production
    using our products. Also, we believe that our
    aggressive increases in design staffing and GaAs HBT fab
    capacity have put RFMD in an excellent position to address
    the growing concern of handset OEMs over component
    shortages. Our four remote design centers are already
    helping us capture business that we otherwise couldn't
    address. And our first fab is continuing to increase its
    output and is now operating at approximately half of its
    ultimate capacity. The construction of our second, much
    larger fab, is currently on schedule, and assuming this
    trend continues, we should be able to begin producing
    wafers from this facility at the end of this calendar
    year. Overall, strong third quarter orders resulted in
    a book to bill ratio at quarter end above one,
    which gives us excellent visibility into our fourth
    quarter. We see opportunities today for revenue growth in
    our fourth quarter and we intend to pursue those
    vigorously throughout the rest of this calendar year. In
    particular, we believe that we are positioned to
    substantially improve our market
    share in CDMA, which is
    projected by industry analysts to be the highest growth air
    interface standard for the next few years.''

    We were up +18/share on Fri. b/c of Intel's great earnings.

    This is just profit taking.

    It's not that we don't like you because you're
    short. We don't care whether you're long or short.
    Really!

    We don't like you because you keep annoying everyone

    $46 7/8 = IRON WALL! GPS can't go thru

    We all know what you think. Some of us care.
    Others do not.

    BUT, at this point you are merely
    annoying people.

    Please rest assured that your
    comments on this board are not self fulfilling
    prophesies.

    While a "reputable" analyst might be able to effect the
    market with his or her opinion, YOU CAN'T.

    If you
    are right about GPS, I promise to congratulate
    you.

    But for now please give it a rest. Thank you.

    Shares of Gap have
    bounced higher this morning after the firm booked
    same-store sales expanded by 5% in December while total
    store sales soared 27%. The solid results have been
    well received as Gap was facing a difficult
    year-over-year comparison. Block trading confirms that
    institutional investors are
    behind the rise with over 55% of
    total volume attributable to block trades. While Smart
    Money has clearly been buying the stock this morning,
    I-Watch shows that the sharp rise attracted profit takers
    who put a ceiling on the intra-day gains around $44
    1/4. Given the
    strong activity from both buyers and
    sellers, we expect GPS will bounce sideways in the
    near-term. A more detailed review of the total trade volume
    revealed that 925,000 shares were claimed as buy
    transactions while 675,000 shares were reported as sell
    trades.
