  • Consolidated Communication May Be Peaking [View article]
    Stephen - I commented on that above -- after an acquisition is completed the company publishes restated consolidated financial statements and the analysts and market incorporate that in to the projection and stock pricing. That has already happened.

    The reason I mention short interest is 2 fold. First, short sellers tend to be more sophisticated and knowledgeable. Here we have a rising price, poor earnings projections and growing sort interest --- that makes me project a peak. Second remember volume is by day and short interest is cumulative. I haven't found any creditable studies that show ratio of short interest has a better correlation than direction of total short interest to predict future pricing. If you found one, please share.

    all 4 for the companies mentioned are in the same SIC category. An east coast and a west coast grocer may not be competitors but they would have the same SIC and analysts would compare them. As to completed acquisitions once the acquisition is completed and all the financials are restated, factored into the analysts projection and the markets evaluations are factored in there is no need to mention it.

  • Best Buy - A Bright Spot In Electronics Retailers [View article]
    9772581 you are entirely correct -- that's why I want to to read my post closely. I do not buy because of analysts good forecasts. However, If I like a stock and they don't then I double check my own research. They may be wrong but if they are advising all their clients to dump something, then it's hard for the stock to go up. Does that make sense?

    So I guess your advice is to get your investment ideas for anonymous sources who post neither their name nor their investment experience?
