Cyber, Freddie and friends....it was always about keeping the faith and taking advantage of the dips. This will be a good year for us all!!
Seeking Alpha just released an article where they are expecting the release tomorrow after the close. It is a bit odd that the company hasn't announced when they will release it. Could be a good sign....could be bad, frustrating to see the overall market in a correction. Hoping stock can hold.

Thai firm now has full global coverage after earlier deal with Google's Adwords
Thai website service provider ReadyPlanet has been appointed by Chinese giant Baidu as a Search Engine Marketing (Baidu SEM) official ads reseller in China, where there are some 550 million Internet users.
Chief operating officer Burin Kledmanee said ReadyPlanet is the first Thai company to be made an official reseller to help the search-engine powerhouse to sell advertising - both searched ads and display ads - through the Baidu Union ad network in China, which comprises around 600,000 Chinese-language websites.....
Baidu is testing new search engines for users outside China that will target markets in Brazil, Egypt and Thailand to start with.
The search pages for the three markets have appeared online, although Baidu has not formally launched the services yet. "It's still in internal testing," said company spokesman Kaiser Kuo on Monday
.........Besides Web search, the sites also contain different features such as image and video search, along with language translation.
I agree, they would walk the stock up like that in the last couple of days to just let the floor fall out from under it after an announcement. I don't think management wants additional "class actions" popping up.
Looks like a consolidation here, I think we break new highs before earnings and see 200 after earnings as a new baseline for the year. DO you agree?
Souza, any thoughts as to when we will get a FDA approval letter? Do you think it will take the 90 days?
JP Morgan Raises TP To $210
If you think Baidu (BIDU), which commands around 70% PC search market share, is doing well on PC, J.P. Morgan thinks Baidu is doing even better on mobile.
Baidu has built a stronger ecosystem on mobile than on PC, says analyst Alex Yao:
Baidu’s mobile eco-system consists of: One of the largest app distribution channels in China (e.g. 91 Wireless, Baidu mobile assistance, Hi Market, etc); A city life service apps portfolio (e.g. Baidu Map, Baidu mobile Tieba, etc). These apps open the door for online to offline transactions; A utility-based app portfolio (e.g. Baidu Palm, Baidu mobile security, Baidu mobile browser, Baidu Music, Baidu Video, etc).
As a result, Baidu can reach a wider Chinese audience than it could with PCs, thanks to the democratization of smartphones there. In addition, Baidu can defend its mobile search market share better with an ever-reaching ecosystem to protect its territory.
J.P. Morgan has raised its December 2014 price target to $210. This price target implies
This is better than we expected it to preform before earnings huh Sword? I gotta feeling they are going to really surprise us on the upside, hence why they are so quiet on the PR front.
