  • WDC versus SNDK the zero sum game...

    I just drew a 1 yr chart of wdc and sndk, the two rivals for storage media, one HDDs the other flash.

    It’s a zero sum game. One wins at the expense of the other. The underlying need for some storage medium cannot be disputed.

    Yet the charts are virtually identical.

    How irrational can a market get?


     please post 1yr graph of wdc versus sndk

  • CRM's acquisition of Radian
    CRM acquisition: hmm let's see, as a % of market cap it represents 2% of CRM's.  And CRM GAAP earnings fall from 60c to 54cents, or 10%. Ming boggling! disclosure short.

  • CRM short. 10% up tomorrow, further into the cloud or 30% haircut into the deep blue sea?

    Does anyone else feel they make the best investment decisions when real life is falling apart, when the sun might never shine again. AND it is thus entirely because of one's utterly incomprehensible mistakes?

    I do.

    Hence by irrefutable logic, CRM is down a heap tomorrow after earnings. Wont raise guidance again, trading mojos are fleeing cos the graph is sinking. (something about trendy trendlines, I gather...)

    Real world could not get worse. Nadir today and time to swim out of the swamp.

    "Yeah!" as a dear exfriend said.
