When people like you with numerous aliases and questionable motives put garbage here (you are very well known here I got to give you that) their reputation catches up.....like yours. So any time you see any posting from them you question it. AGAIN THIS IS CALLED CREDIBILITY AND LACK OF CREDIBILITY. It has NOTHING to do with doing DD. CREDIBILITY OR NO CREDIBILITY
Oh, so you thought you can put anything you want or fancy on the message board regardless of accuracy? Without any source to back it up in case people wanted to verify your blabbering? That is the reason you have absolutely no credibility.
I have no problem with DD. But the proper protocol is to indicate the source when you add a message to the message board specially from someone such as you with numerous aliases......
This is caused by the term "internet neutrality" recently brought up by the Obama administration. Internet neutrality is currently a bill to regulate the use of internet and the service providers. Internet providers, the major users of telecom equipment makers, have indicated that they will stop spending on speed and upgrading of their service until they KNOW what is in that bill. As always ALU which sells heavily to these service providers, gets the brunt of it.
internet neutrality proponents claim that telecom companies seek to impose a tiered service model in order to control the pipeline and thereby remove competition, create artificial scarcity, and oblige subscribers to buy their otherwise uncompetitive services. Many believe net neutrality to be primarily important as a preservation of current freedoms. Vinton Cerf, co-inventor of the Internet Protocol and considered a "father of the Internet," as well as Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the Web, and many others have spoken out in favor of net neutrality.
Opponents of net neutrality claim that broadband service providers have no plans to block content or degrade network performance. Despite this claim, there has been at least one case where an Internet service provider, Comcast, intentionally slowed peer-to-peer (P2P) communications. In 2007, one other company was using deep packet inspection to discriminate against P2P, FTP, and online games, instituting a cell-phone style billing system of overages, free-to-telecom "value added" services, and bundling. Critics of net neutrality also argue that data discrimination of some kinds, particularly to guarantee quality of service, is not problematic, but is actually highly desirable. Bob Kahn, co-inventor of the Internet Protocol, has called the term "net neutrality" a "slogan" and states that he opposes establishing it, but he admits that he is against the fragmentation of the net whenever this becomes excluding to other participants. Opponents of net neutrality regulation also argue that the best solution to discrimination by broadband providers is to encourage greater competition among such providers, which is currently limited in many areas.
For those who may not be familiar with the term internet neutrality........
Internet neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the Internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication. The term was coined by Columbia University media law professor Tim Wu in 2003 as an extension of the longstanding concept of a common carrier. Proponents often see net neutrality as an important component of an open Internet, where policies such as equal treatment of data and open web standards allow those on the Internet to easily communicate and conduct business without interference from a third party. A "closed Internet" refers to the opposite situation, in which established corporations or governments favor certain uses. A closed Internet may have restricted access to necessary web standards, artificially degrade some services, or explicitly filter out content.
There has been extensive debate about whether net neutrality should be required by law, particularly in the United States. Debate over the issue of net neutrality predates the coining of the term. Advocates of net neutrality such as Lawrence Lessig have raised concerns about the ability of broadband providers to use their last mile infrastructure to block Internet applications and content (e.g. websites, services, and protocols), and even to block out competitors.
Here we go again. ATT reduces CAPEX and this stock tanks more than all other telecom equipment makers, a not very responsible person addresses internet neutrality (whatever that is...) and this stock goes down supreme....but all the reassurances of Michel Combes goes to no avail. Now an advice to the individual who is talking about internet neutrality (again whatever that is....)....If it works, do not fix it.
Regarding Item 1 Growth is the key for stock.....
833 percent?? for the next ywear?? Would you please explain? Thanks
What silence? When the stock of a company drops like this, specially when an analyst issues a concern over the expectation for that stock, any company worth the name company, does one of two things. Either it reiterates the expectation or simply issues new guidance. Not a thing from this company, nothing. I could have gotten out at $4s but I gave this company a chance. Why admit it to the world? Frustration.
I said $2.40 was my bottom to get out not $3.00. $2.40 was my cost. I made some profit. A profit that I knew I could not get if I waited longer. Not the way this thing is behaving.
No, it simply indicates volatility/stability of the stock. It has nothing to do with the price of the stock. It indicates the price MOVEMENT (whatever price may be) relative to the MARKET MOVEMENT (percentage up or down).
No, profits/losses do not come into picture at all. Beta strictly deals with the price of the stock and more than anything its volatility/stability relative to market movements.
My understanding of beta is that the lower the beta the more stable the stock. A beta of 1 means that the stock follows the market and if market goes down 1 percent the stock goes down 1 percent and if the market goes up 1 percent the stock goes up 1 percent. If the beta for a stock is higher, lets say 1.5 then if the market goes down 1 percent the stock goes down 1.5 percent and if the market goes up 1 percent the stock goes up 1.5 percent. More volatility. So a lowered beta means that apparently this is inching to a more stable position (I wish I could keep a straight face saying this considering what is happening to ALU!).
This is probably not a big deal considering the current circumstances but have you noticed that the beta for ALU has been lowered from 2.24 to 2.04 to 1.95 the past few days on Yahoo? At this time every little bit helps.
