  • Apple: Where The Bears Have It Wrong [View article]
    I think it was 9/27 (Saturday). That's when it usually is.

  • GT Advanced Technologies: Business Update Postponed [View article]
    If you look at the chart and the gaps up, that seems to be short covering.

    Just to prepare everyone that news was coming in a few weeks. A lot of people were wondering what was going on after the drop post-iPhone launch. So the company said, in a few weeks will tell you, but we have not determined a final date and time just yet.

    I have seen companies announce stuff like this with a morning PR and then discuss after the bell. Wouldn't be surprised to see something after Thursday's bell or even Friday afternoon. The old bad news gets buried if you announce it late Friday?

    It depends on the company. The following link shows insider transactions from Visa. Lots of options exercised at $0. I don't consider Visa a silicon valley company. I'm sure there are plenty of other examples.

    There was nothing in the press release about a payment plan. It may come down to the specific carrier.

    Looks like estimates on YF have taken another dive today.

  • SodaStream: Why This Holiday Season Is Crucial [View article]
    That July 24th heavy volume was due to the Bloomberg report of a $40 buyout. We see these rumors quite often with SODA, and it causes volume to spike.

    I always mention fiscal quarters vs. calendar quarters. I agree that others need to do so as well.

    No, I simply discussed the latest report and what it meant. I never said anything about a conspiracy, and I stated that a 2015 China launch wasn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Average revenue estimate for December-ending quarter is now $63.11 billion. EPS of $2.36.

    The cost basis of $0 is probably stock options that he earned as compensation. This happens with a lot of executives.

  • BlackBerry: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back [View article]
    Well, he has said that they have not bottomed yet, and estimates call for them to continue going lower. Those are the same estimates that the company has missed by large amounts in 2 of the past 3 quarters.

    Oh I understand the situation as I cover both names. But at the same time, if revenues continue to disappear, there won't be any left.

    Looks like today's fall was mostly due to UBS price target cut.
