  • More on Micron: Cleveland warns of PC DRAM price drop (updated) [View news story]
    "By "just" I literally mean "just". They presented at a conference at 11:20-12:50 ET this morning."

    I admittedly hadn't listened in on the conference. As you might be aware, I cover dozens of different tech companies every day, and hundreds over the course of a week. I do think the price cuts Cleveland is reporting could be just due to seasonality.

    Regardless, suggesting that I don't pay attention to Micron's own commentary when I quoted some of their January remarks in this very post is my idea of "misleading."

    "I can see why you say that, but what I really try to do is pay attention to all of the commentary, negative or positive, and make a judgement based on the preponderance of the evidence that I look at."

    That's fine. I've just noticed you're quick to assail any commentary that's critical of your favored companies, while responding far less to the positive stuff.

    Granted, commenters in general are often hungrier to jump in when they see something negative about a company they love than something positive. The following post from a week ago (covers positive takes on Micron's analyst day) has only one comment:

  • More on Micron: Cleveland warns of PC DRAM price drop (updated) [View news story]
    "It seems like you might like to summarize what Micron itself says as well."

    You did notice that I mentioned Micron's fairly positive January guidance and commentary about DRAM pricing, right?

    I call things as I see them, and I've certainly covered plenty of positive commentary about Micron, as well as many of the company's own upbeat remarks. You seem to take objection to the publishing of any commentary that's critical of the companies that you're bullish on, while paying much less attention to the positive stuff.

    And btw, MCHP never predicted a tech recession would happen. They predicted a chip industry correction would occur, though they were off the mark in predicting something comparable to past corrections would occur.

  • RGS Energy continues soaring after SA author makes bull case [View news story]
    Seeking Alpha articles have moved stocks with market caps more than 50x larger than RGSE's. It's not far-fetched to think that an interesting column on a company with a ~$30M market cap could have an effect.

  • Pac Crest: Microsoft will gain cloud share as hybrid clouds boom [View news story]
    Google offers a lot more than that at this point. Check out their site:

    That said, AWS still has a richer public cloud feature set. And Azure offers on-premise integrations that Google (and Amazon) doesn't.

  • GoPro down 7% on second post-lockup trading day [View news story]
    I was referring to the broader volatility in GPRO's shares. Heavy shorting and short-covering is definitely playing a role there.

  • Solar stocks post big gains as markets, oil rally [View news story]
    There are literally dozens of instances where solar has gone in the same direction as oil prices over the last few months, following a big move in oil. One can argue about where such moves are justified, but the correlation in prices is clearly there.

    And for the record, CSIQ only rose $0.31 yesterday, a far smaller move than today's $1.70 gain. Likewise, TAN only rose $0.14 vs. $0.70 today.

  • Microsoft buries the hatchet with Samsung [View news story]
    It's not about the Nokia patents. It's about the mobile software and UI patent portfolio Microsoft has built up over the years (going back to the Windows Mobile/Pocket PC days). The original Samsung deal was struck in 2011, two years before the Microsoft/Nokia deal.

    Microsoft only acquired hardware design patents from Nokia. Nokia kept everything else.

    The sales guidance is mostly above analyst estimates. Most chipmakers see sales decline in Q1 due to seasonality.
