that they have to rely on political events to save them from their excess investment stupidity.
Exactly how much of a moron do you have to be when it takes a war to offset your bad judgement?
And the nitwits don't even have any skin in the game.
No position posters:
Pretty soon we will have the building news cycles from IFA and IDF to provide discussion material for those who know how to post content.
"Even if Apple does a OSx + iOS merged product, I suspect they will continue offering iPad as a fun device. There is a sizable consumer market for this type of device."
[Unfortunately the iPad sales growth rate has been shrinking continuously. Apple needs new products. Simply offering new sizes of existing products is only a short-term solution. Dunno, maybe the the new Apple wearable due out in September will help. Apple needs to get it right or big trouble will result.
I'm not excited about their new alliance with IBM or their corporate plans. Why would a corporation mess with Apple's security concerns when they have a solid, inexpensive Intel tablet solution?]
In the meantime did anyone buy any ARM?
Didn't think so. Well there's still a chance. The big boys really want to unload their shares before the bottom falls out due to Intel's 14nm production. They have some with your name on them. Don't let them down - buy now.
Don't make them beg.
ARM Fun Facts:
1.) Humpty P/E: 117 (Source: Yahoo Finance)
2.) Humpty's fabrication crisis continues
3.) Mobility ASPs and margins shrinking
4.) Intel taking major tablet market share
5.) ARM no longer on Moore's Law curve. Each new node is more expensive and not less
6.) Most of the ARM world is stuck at 28nm and will be for years and years
7.) ARM FinFET production still years and years away
8.) Intel is now competing with ARM at the low-end where all the growth is
9.) ARM 22nm production is slowly ramping without enough capacity for the top players who are the only one's who can afford the increased cost per transistor.

"They could be put writers."
[I see this reply. Yahoo is crazy anymore. I never know if anything works and I see processing taking forever. ]
Squawk away, boys. I won't read your posts. Neither will anyone who only respects advice from people with skin in the game and the backbone to admit it.
Neither of you qualifies.
"Buy on the rumor and sell on the news is a time honored strategy."
[Sure, why don't you track Intel after recent big shows so you can discover what everyone else already knows. That you have no idea what you are talking about. Intel's last big move up came after what show? Go ahead,dufus - even you should know this one.
You say there are no guarantees and then say "Buy on the rumor and sell on the news is a time honored strategy." You contradict yourself in your posts.
You want to make ugly, stinging remarks but you are just too stupid. Do you own any ARM? We want to know exactly how stupid you are. ]
Didn't think so.
No one does anything but get burned on the ARM moves up because no one knows ahead of time when the big boys decide to try to run it back up. They run it up, then the followers jump in and the big boys offload their shares. Rinse and repeat.
Now who wants to buy some ARM shares? Come on - some of you ARM cheerleaders and apologists put your money where your worthless bulldog mouths have been.
You ARM fanbois never have the courage of your convictions. You're not players and have no positions so why is it you think anyone is interested in your opinions. Opinions are for those with skin in the game.
When ARM is down you talk about prior gains. LIke it doesn't matter because ARM has had a good run. Ha. Money is money and losses are losses, boys.
When ARM is up you talk as if you actually owned the stock. You guys are toothless.
And once again let me state that any bearish play on Intel after IFA and IDF has a really bad risk/reward potential. Well, there are a lot of pinheads out there.
"Remember a while back when Ashraf (remember that guy?) posted that no Intel-based smartphone could be used on Verizon's network until the year 2022 because of lack of CDMA? "
[Yeah, I never bought that argument either. ]
Are Intel bashers:
3.) Merely incompetent?
So, Intel has moved up from $19.23 to 34+ over the last 20 months. And the Intel bashers have bashed the entire way while continuously indicating that they are the smart ones and anyone who enjoyed the 80 percent bump up is not so intelligent.
Their rallying cries are now things like "Hey, look at that OVTI" or " ARMH is only $5.82 below its 52-week high".
So, which of the above is it? Yes, the correct answer is that it doesn't really matter. Stupid is as stupid does.
The posts on this board are 95 percent garbage these days thanks to the thuggish Twinkletoes endlessly draining his inner uncontrollable rage and the increasingly silly and senile Lucy whose daily bashes have moved beyond stupid to screw loose stupid.
Intel is playing out just about as most of those who understand a tiny bit of fabrication, capacity and technology expected.
intoodeep is just another Twinkletoes alias. The rage boy will never leave - his emotional dysfunction and need for attention is too great. He is broken and nothing will fix him short of years of therapy. Instead he will continue to use this board to vent his bile, venom, frustration, anger and impotence.
He is simply not strong enough to leave.
"What specifically could Yahoo do? I don't know how they could do it short of applying moderators and moderators have their own problems."
[Not make it so easy to add new aliases.
Make multiple aliases or user IDs a violation of the terms of service.
Trace IP addresses.
Change the ratings systems to allow users themselves to identify and out the multiple ID abusers.
Put some real enforcement into the management of abuse complaints.
Selectively and periodically use moderators on boards with the most abuse complaints.
There is a whole world of things they could do to get rid of the cretins who systematically use multiple aliases and IDs. I'm rather surprised that you couldn't think of quite a few.]
"Also, why would that be in the best interest for Yahoo Corporation shareholders and improve their bottom line?"
[It would indicate some sort of corporate integrity which I think some investors still appreciate. It would draw back some of the many people who have left the message boards out of total disgust at the abusers gone wild with absolutely no response from Yahoo management. It would draw new users. It would indicate to many that Yahoo management is not dull, stunted and brain-dead which they now appear to be.]
Fewer Americans than forecast applied for unemployment benefits last week, a sign the U.S. job market is making progress as the world’s largest economy grows.
Jobless claims fell by 14,000 to 298,000 in the week ended Aug. 16, a Labor Department report showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 46 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for 303,000. Continuing claims fell to the lowest level in more than seven years.
Employers are holding the line on dismissals as second-half economic growth is projected to pick up, setting the stage for more hiring to meet demand. Waning claims also reinforce Federal Reserve policy makers’ view the labor market is strengthening, one reason they’re trimming monthly asset purchases.
“The job market is doing well right now, there’s no doubt about it,” said Guy Berger, an economist at RBS Securities Inc. in Stamford, Connecticut, who projected 295,000 claims. “There’s a good chance we’ll get another solid month of payrolls. Lower layoffs, together with faster hiring, mean better prospects for consumer spending.”
[More trouble for the correction crowd.]
An index of U.S. leading indicators rose in July by the most in four months, as stronger job growth helps power the world’s largest economy.
The Conference Board’s index of U.S. leading indicators, a gauge of the outlook for the next three to six months, climbed 0.9 percent after a 0.6 percent gain in June, the New York-based group said today. The median forecast of 49 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 0.6 percent advance.
More jobs are underpinning sentiment and demand among U.S. households. Going forward, further gains in wages and improvement in the housing market will be needed to boost consumer spending and add additional momentum to the economic recovery, now in its sixth year of expansion.
“There’s no real indication that the economy is going to turn south here anytime soon,” said Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James & Associates Inc. in St. Petersburg, Florida. Brown correctly projected the July figure. The gain in the LEI is “all very positive and consistent with the broad range of economic figures we’ve been seeing. We’re still definitely on the recovery path.”
