RE: "They report the same tables EVERY TIME." LVS left out their Sand Bethlehem operations this time. Even though small, I liked to have to see it.
Agreed, feels like MU wants to go to 30. That with the caveat that sentiment can change on a dime. None-the-less what a day! A solid wall of dark green.
RICK's gentlemen's clubs division is a slow grower and a source of reasonably steady income. The sports bar/restaurants division is da bombshell... could Bombshells go national catapulting this stock over $100 a share in the next five years?
Strong headwinds due to another tough day in the market. Hopefully Fed thing will be viewed positively...
Like I said, CREE is continuing to improve. Broke to 200 lumens / watt barrier: Cree, Inc. (CREE) raises the performance bar again with the demonstration of the first 200 lumen-per-watt (LPW) LED concept luminaire, which is more than twice the efficiency of the best linear fluorescent luminaires. The latest Department of Energy (DoE) projections* had estimated that this level of luminaire efficiency would not occur until after 2020, but Cree’s latest innovation has made this possible six years sooner than projected. The prototype leverages Cree’s vertical integration with innovations in LED chips, optics, materials technology and novel system design to deliver unprecedented performance.
It's Mulally but a good list anyway. Have a position in F as well as RICK.
Locally cold in one place in the world, warm just about everywhere else, see for example, http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/view.php?id=82918&src=nha
The annual report does say another Rick's Caberet is being built: " Rick’s Cabaret Odessa, Texas – under construction – opening in spring of 2014."
I think RICK has been doing somewhat of a scatter-shot approach to see what sticks. Ricky Bobby... no follow-up, but Bombshells, this is the fifth one, with talk of 10 restaurants by year-end, maybe we got a winner here...
Not as good as CREE's 84 lumens/watt in their 60W Equiv soft white; 81.5 in their 75W Equiv and 89 in their 60W Equiv Daylight.
"moving the LEDs close to service in general solid-state lighting (SSL) applications".
So Plessey is "close", while CREE is shipping and continuing to improve.
Yeah messed up the timing of the msg as I was looking for earnings.... but it's true. The previous two quarters my core stock position got slammed and I had zero option protection. Decided to dip my toe in this area for this quarter although on the call side to maybe scarf up some $. For all I know CREE could strengthen strongly the rest of the week, hopefully next week instead.
... currently $66.05 bid. Outlook for Q3 a bit light IMO, but for Q4 "For our fiscal fourth quarter, the trends in the business suggest that the Company is in a good position to grow LED fixtures, LED bulbs and LED components." So overall report is OK, street likes it.
