anybody see the raymond james comments on the sector,it looks like the sector has topped in here for a while,likely through summer
this tiny co is in an uber competitive space and a major firm said that this group would have trouble,they are all down today.i will be surprised if this gets much benifit from earnings,by the way the firm was ray james and it can be found at the alu site on yahoo.im holding but im guessing by fall we will have totally retraced the last year .read the ray james thing.
if and only if volume continues to expand than 80 could happen though i think 75 is the more likely number.a lot of the crazy may call premiums were and are in the 60s and now 70s,hints of that are in the 75s also but not there yet,some pull back during today would actually be helpful
this is going way up now,here how i know call options premiums in may are so absurd they should not be bought,i got my stock in at 59 2 weeks ago its becoming obvious i wont be doing my earnings options,damn i really though we would see one more pullback during this week
We may be playing with your post a few times.,Go away in May has its roots in vacations,slow trading as well as lower economic activity on thing like electronics,durables asw ae outside more unless you live in s fla.Part of the reason we see major selling in the fall is because of the slowdown that happens.Ok as for deficits its hard to to what degree sequester is slowing spending beyond the military cuts..I buy your weather and pent ip demand idea,but try this out for size,people dont have as much money to spend,particulary if you are lucky enough to be able to pay for your own health ins,it also is likely that you actually write a check to uncle,thus you have less to toss around for a while.,and if you have kids by the time july rolls around its back to school..Im a little more negative on the rest of the years prospects,i think next year a s we get use to all the obamacare stuff,taxes etc we will see spending go back up.I think marty has tried to dial down expecxtations for a few reasons,one the stock has made a huge 18 month run,next waiting to see the results ocare as that was and can be a major catalyst for wbmd,i thionk things are getting lined up for a nice run in the mid fall to holiday and 55 is not outreach,as always xcuse the infant like typing.
its called a bear mkt,i think its a good time to buy going into earnings,but i would not be surprised to see the plug pulled on fri as options expire
rumours are running over at nok and alu there will be a merger,ive got to believe nok is pretty healthy balance shee stuffed with msft cash could make alu a far larger concern for infn.the cos have been in talks before by the wat.
lolseriously i still think wbmd will make real run to 55 barring a mkt collapse of say 20 percent from here.im not sure qe2 will continue if things deteriate in ukraine and russia and obama actually tries to economicly squeeze putin,if he does yellen may go on hold
i really dont care,at this point and as soon as this gets to 9 im out of this,but i stand by my comments that this board is unique in its interest in nuts and boltz tech compared to its stock price,look at any post that mentions price and not mine they all get thumbs down,ive wanted out since the holidays but this wont let me out at a price on my last purchase i can live with 9s the break even so as soon as it hits im out of this.so pray earnings are decent.
trying to initiate discussion on whays driving the stock price if you notice most of my posts on the topic actually have or have implied questions that simply are not answerable by a tech paper,by the way a small firm initiated coverage this am and thus the little pop we had,yet prior to this nobody mentions it,if you look at most of the boards here discussion is about the actual stock and the whys and how,this is a very different discussion site.
at this point its doubtful we see anything as we are now close to earnings,this looks like it wants to get to 60 by weeks end,its flying now at 58.14
by however well intentions all these technology reviews are contribute little to the discussion of this co and stock,unless you are an engineer of some type has little to do with what mgt is doing to enhance shareholder value or how people are trading this.in the end we all know at least conceptually infn has great product yet over the last year,its done little ,certainly in the last 6 mos or so to enhance the stock price.
nobody here cares about the stock price,read the alcatel lucent thread here,what guys here are interested is the race for best tech,oddly the alu posters have no real interest in tech but more into stock price,i own both,but the regulars here rarely mention stock prices here and when outsiders do they are attacked with thumbs down
could turn green if theres any more mkt comeback,fb performed really well today,i still believe if the mkt sells off earnings may not benifit us as much as we hope.
