    Actually, I do not own any financial instruments that are in any way connected with CY!

    I made my money before and during the Tech Bust when CY PLUNGED from 58 to 3+!!

    I doubt seriously if CY could come up with the money to buy Ramtron----even if the price was $2+ a share.

    CY is just "tooting off" their ego and hype buying their own stock today to impress the Ramtron shareholder so they will want to buy CY! It's called hype and takeing the bait Dumbo!

    Your Mayor-CBS/cbs

  • The message that CY sent Ramtron in the new "extension" of the offer is one of the funniest essays I have ever seen!!!

    CY accuses Ramtron of "losing" market-share and not looking out for the best interest of Ramtron!!! ROFLMFAO! 10,000 times.

    If Ramtron is that bad why does CY want to buy them in the first place?

    I'm thinking that CY shareholders will not tolerate much more from CY management!

    Is there some problem with BBT/Visa Credit Card posting a "LATE FEE" on a customers's statement when in fact it is not a late fee----then going back the next day and giving a "credit?"

    Why CY is down despite DOW up 200

    Hi---you cannot judge a company by looking at a "one day" result.

    Two things that are takeing CY down.

    #1-Their "order flow" from big customers has dwindled to a "drip" rather than "flowing" at a normal pace!

    #2-Their higher management has turned to "deception" to keep investors from selling their stock!

    CY is headed to low single digits----probably $2 to $3 dollars if not lower.

    This depression we are in is here to stay for some years to come--perhaps decades.

    I would not purchase any technology at this time---buy banks and homebuilders because those are the two sectors that the Federal Reserve and US Treasury seem to be supporting!

    Good Luck!!

    C'mon---REGULATORS---where are you??? ROFLMFAO!

    A half billion gone from Knights Hedge Fund on a "tradeing glitch??" ROFLMFAO!

    Jon Corzine's Company is still missing 2 BILLION of Customers Futures Tradeing Money??? ROFLMFAO!

    The system is in FULL COLLAPSE!!!!!

    Where is the FBI?? Where is the Federal Reserve?? Where is the Securities and Exchange?? Where is the US Attorney General???

    Why don't we just shut the Stock Market down and start all over---!!!

    Hi Tim-I'm not buying at this time. Anything! I have some good dividend payers at this time and most all companies are increaseing their dividends. I have STX on my Watch List---but I must say I am not impressed. Back in 1999 I owned it just before the Tech Bust.

    The reason I like banks/homebuilders now is I think the US Treasury and Federal Reserve understand that these two sectors MUST remain "intact!" They are buying and selling them to see that they remain viable! If the banks/homebuilders go "belly up" then the whole world will collapse.

    A company like CY the Fed and Treasury don't even care what they make--in other words they are expendable.

    I have not been to Litchfield Golf and Beach Resort in two summers now----I get a lot of "Specials" from them so I assume they are hurting for customers too! If possible go to a Restaurant called "Franks" and get the "outside" seating----It's on the North Entrance to Pawleys Island and Highway #17. Great atmosphere and food----no lap dancers though---but some pretty waitresses!!

    I do not see the Stock Market doing much for the rest of this decade!!!! It's gonna be "up and down" with NO GROWTH for some years. Grin and bear it!!!!

    Have fun and Happy Hunting! :-)

    Most CY Lovers are "over educated" and lack common sense!

    The Stock Market is quite easy to traverse---I only use a couple of very, very simple tools!!

    #1-The Fed and the Federal Funds interest rate!!

    #2-The "culture" of the higher management!!

    A tip for you that I hope you will heed---NEVER, NEVER LISTEN TO CEO's and CFO's!!!!!
    NEVER, NEVER listen to the "media" that depends on your email address to fatten their own pickets and usually give you "bum" advice! Examples---The Motley Fool and Seeking Alpha!!

    Your Mayor---from the VOI's CBS/cbs

  • Up until now all we have heard out of Washington---is the "gridlock" between the "left and rights;" or "those across the aisle!!" ROFLMFAO!

    Now, the new battle ground is the Regulators versus the whole Congress of the USA!!!

    Mr. Bernanke and Mr. Geitner are pushing back at Congress for lack of leadership and Senator Chuck Schumer of NY told Mr Bernanke last week----"Get To Work!" When we interpret that at the Village Of Idiots it means, simpley, Mr. Ben---get more stimulus or out the door you go!!! ROFLMFAO!

    What is so "damn" funny the trillions and trillions that Mr. Bernanke and Mr. Geithner have printed into the economy has only made matters WORSE!!! ROFLMFAO!

    I think Mr. Bernanke and Mr. Geithner have done a GREAT job----and I think they inherited this financial mess from the previous Administration with the help of Mr. Alan Greenspan.

    Where do we go from here???? In six months we will be worse off than we are now---WITH or WITHOUT the stimulus!

    From the VOI--your Mayor CBS/cbs

    More on SEEKING ALPHA.

    However, I "hate" those that use deception to "toot their own horn!"

    Both companies have a Bull Smell about them? ROFLMFAO!

  • village_idiot_mayor by village_idiot_mayor Jul 25, 2012 10:08 AM Flag

    I note that SEEKING ALPHA on the same page as the report had this to say concerning their own "ego!"

    I quote----"722 people decided to get CY articles by email alert."


    They failed to mention concerning the quote that CY traded 9 MILLION shares on the day they reported their Q2 2012 earnings--and 7 MILLION shares on Friday--the day after the report!! Both days HUGE downside--on more that 4 times the average volume!!

    Once again---" a very small drip--in an Earthly Ocean!"

    My VOI janitor can write better! ROFLMFAO!


    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The recent "advisory" on CY's Q2 numbers and outlook by a writer at Seeking Alpha are nothing but "editorial fraud!!"

    The writer is a "small drip" in a Earthly Ocean--and shows how "deception" on Wall Street really works!

    The writer mentions a few items that a CY Lovers would consider to be a "positive!" The writer did not mention that Q1 numbers were "re-stated" numbers---nor did he mention that the numbers were negative! Yet, the writer "assumed" that the CEO was correct when he said "we made the numbers!" Nor, did he mention that the CEO said publicly that "he was holding his stock!" Remember--what we know is that CY has plunged from 23.95 to 10. A MAMMOUTH LOSS for small investors that have been deceived.

    The writer did not mention that the numbers for the rest of 2012 are likely to be much, much worse than what the company has reported---nor did the writer mention it is going to very, very difficult to maintain the dividend!

    The writer did not mention that CY MAY be found guilty of a patent law suit that could be disasterous to any profits--nor did he mention the revolving credit account which would be used to "borrow" money!!!

    A better name than Seeking Alpha---would be seeking #$%$ and money from unsuspecting investors!

    Mr. el-erian of PIMCO has a great article this AM posted on the CNBC web-site on Zero % interest rates!!

    Basically, Mr. el-erian says ZERO interest rates are not enough!!! I agree 200 percent!! He says in theory that is the way to go in this weak economy--but in the real it does not work!

    I would recommend that Washington get off their dead butts and create programs immediately similar to the CC Camps created by FDR in the 1930's to upgrade our infrastructure!!!

    Washington is currently setting up Mr. Bernanke to be their "fall-guy!!!" Mr. Bernanke IS NOT the problem. It's Senators like Mr. Schumber of NY that last week---basically----told Mr. Bernanke to PRINT MORE MONEY-----that is the real problem. Washington has done not one thing to fix the financial problem---and, are deceiveing home owners on Fed help for underwater "home-owners!!"

    Amen!! ROFLMFAO!

    I note Forbes says this afternoon that CY's RSI dipped into the the OverSold position and it is time to buy!!! Forbes and CY Top Brass are far, far rights----suppose that had anything to do with it??? ROFLMFAO!

    I'm sure the local CY chart readers are going to dive in now!!!


  • village_idiot_mayor by village_idiot_mayor Jul 23, 2012 4:32 PM Flag

    Attached is an excerpt from the Motely Fool as related to the the Cantor Fitzgerald "upgrade" from Sell to Hold! Posted today 07/23/12.

    ""We begin with Cypress Semi, which last week disappointed investors with Q3 guidance that fell below expectations. Q3 revenue, says the company, will be basically flat, with earnings of no more than $0.21 versus Street expectations of $0.26 -- and only "pro forma" earnings at that.

    Scary? Apparently so, and the shares are down 7.5% since earnings as a result. But now that the bad news is "priced in," Cantor Fitzgerald thinks it's time to jump back into the stock: "We are upgrading the shares of Cypress to Hold as the shares reached our [expected decline]. We believe that the downside is probably limited from here and that there is the potential that 4Q:12 will be better than we currently project."

    It had better be, because if all Cypress can manage is more of the same -- earnings that now have the stock trading at a nosebleed 32 P/E -- then this stock could be headed for some rough times. Most analysts think Cypress will be stuck around 12% annual growth levels for the foreseeable future, which is far too low to support a valuation this high. If they're right, and Cantor is wrong ... look out below.""

    Tim-the Pink Flamingo went out of business---. The guy that owned the building re-modeled it and made a restaurant----it's for rent! No one has ever been successful running a restaurant here!!! Bar and Grill is about as fancy as we can support. We do have some "talented" lap dancers! :-)

    The Village Of Idiots is quite remote and unpopulated-----especially when the Public Schools are in session. I have to go at least 10 miles for gas, 15 miles for groceries and Absolute. We are struggleing here making ends meet----!

    I fear much harder economic conditions are imminent----those out of work are spending their savings to survive and those like me that are on fixed income are also having to spend savings that are running out, or will soon run out.

    Wine; Women and Song do help the stress of a bad economy though! ROFLMFAO!!

    OK--listen up CY Lovers!!

    I think I read on this Board or somewhere at the prices on this past Thursday & Friday had the CY dividend at 4%-----we do not have any local Idiots that have enough fingers and toes to calculate that number---and we are not Stanford grads either---The Cardinal(the bird)---!!!

    Let me see if I can explain it so my "lap dancers" understand it too!

    On Thursday and Friday---there were approximately 17 million shares trades---some were very large blocks---probably large institutions!!! It is apparent to even an "Idiot" that those shares did not give a Mouses Butt or Camel doo-doo about a 4% dividend---they were in a panic to get out of CY and leave the Scavenger Citadel Corp to reap the "left overs!!"

    Once again I repeat---GET OUT!!! NOW!!! $10 to $11 is a whole lot better than the low, low single digits!

    Good Luck--long, long live your great "leader!" :-)

    Hey--Tim--you are stealing my lines! ROFLMFAO!

    I disagree on your time frame to buy CY and here is why!!

    The Fed Funds HAS TO GO UP FROM ZERO to spur growth and create jobs.

    Mr. Bernanke---has stated many, many, many times that Zero Fed Funds rate is here at least until the end of 2014. He certainly has the power to change that at any time---however; I note ---and PAY ATTENTION CY LOVERS TO THIS STATEMENT---Mr. Bernanke told Congress that TOTAL DISASTER IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK!!

    dumbo Senator Schumer of NY told Mr. Bernanke to "Go to Work!" ROFLMFAO! And this is after the Fed has already dumped trillions and trillions into the Economy.

    A DOW 5,000 could look "great" if the Political element in this Country doesn't get off THEIR FAT BUTTS and get something done!

    How's your golf game?

    I got this info from a PhD at our old Pink Flamingo!!

    "A stock buyback is not a magic bullet. If you are a firm that should not be doing buybacks, don't go down that road, even if every other firm in your sector is doing so. You may be able to fool the market initially and get a stock price pop, but the truth will eventually come out to hurt you (perhaps after the top managers have cashed out their options and moved on.. but that is another story...)"

    Amen and Happy Hunting Bartman
