  • Google Should Buy NII Holdings Before Tower Sale Is Done [View article]
    Well, the computing world is going wireless and to the cloud. And GOOG is all over this in a big way. They also are deploying fiber in its Google Fiber initiative. They also bought Motorola which makes handsets and other wireless infrastructure. Owning a large footprint like NIHDs could give them real time dynamic customer feedback through monitoring operations and give them the ability to test new products etc without the stodgy wireless company management getting in the way. All this at a bargain basement price with a return on your money, money you can't bring onshore anyway without adverse tax issues.

    I'd rather be long a stock where the longs are scared shorts are emboldened. I think the volatility in this name shows the longs are scared. There is nothing to fear than fear itself. Please ask your broker how many $TSLA shares are available to borrow and what's the negative rebate. Nice article!

    But Scientific Games hasn't put a contingency in for this to be settled, right?

    Nonsensical article, 3G is a natural upgrade especially on an uncrowded network where a 3G customer experience is faster than a 4G crowded network. Moreover, 4G is not widely available. The subscriber adds are improving especially in their credit quality as well. All the analysts agree that things are improving ahead of schedule. Motley Fools are just what their names suggest. Also, 3G can be inexpensively upgraded to 4G when the customer traffic justifies it. The shorts are getting burned on this trade and they are frustrated. Selling in the last week has been coming from primarliy the shorts. Long $NIHD

    I think anyone coming in would come in at a starting bid around $10.50 in order to have a chance of getting a fariness opinion. The final price would likely go into the $13's assuming we didn't get into a bidding war, then it could go to Stifel's target of $23.00. Long $NIHD

  • Tesla's 'Mirror Mirror On The Wall' Stock Can Fly Until July [View article]
    Very eloquent and I too have both suffered and won like you in non-related technology ventures. I think Elon is remarkable and hope he uses our writing to his advantage in his future negotiations with companies both mentioned and not mentioned in these articles. It's very difficult to change the status quo. Elon is doing it. The stock will appreciate as it is currently being recalled at many wire houses. The negative rebate varies between 35-55% annual. GO $TSLA !

  • Key Meetings Likely To Bring WMS And MGT Closer To Settlement [View article]
    Given the experience in $VRNG, one should not expect a settlement from any of these giants. Their strategy is to drag it out as long as possible. For more evidence, look at $DISH and $TIVO. Patent investors, as we are as well, should be prepared for the long haul. Strategic moves, however, such as what $AOL pulled off when they sold their portfolio to $MSFT is more likely in a situation like $SITO.OB where patents have strategic significance to companies like $FB or $NFLX.

  • Google (GOOG -0.6%) roundup:1) Elon Musk says Tesla (TSLA) is talking with Google about using its self-driving tech. But he views it as the equivalent of a plane's autopilot mode rather than a total replacement for human control, and criticizes the cost of Google's sensor system - Musk says Tesla will likely develop a cheaper camera-based system. 2) ChannelAdvisor reports same-store sales for clients via search ads rose only 2.3% Y/Y in April. Sales via shopping engines (such as Google Shopping) rose 6.1%. 3) TheStreet's Anton Wahlman points out Google Glass could see strong commercial uptake. Soldiers, emergency personnel, and retail industry workers are named as potential users. [View news story]

    Shorts are in denial, and that's not a river in Africa. Cramer is calling it a real squeeze, thinks Musk wants $TSLA to go to $100 to do secondary.

    WOW, that's a very cool vision. Don't know if the Deutsche board would allow it, but it would certainly insure they could avoid the Kodak moment. Meantime, the shares are tight as a drum. Think the shorts are doing the best they can keeping a lid on $TSLA, but its going up for sure from here. Thanks for your comment Julian, very thought provoking indeed.

    The other possibility here is that $GOOG takes a stake and they develop the first car to drive itself as reportedin Bloomberg magazine here: http://bloom.bg/12dMzvP

    $GOOG and Already has a relationship with Solar City, Musk's other company and $TSLA affiliate.

    I would prefer Daimler to Toyota as well because TM has a reputation for snatching IP such as the hybrid patent fight it had with Paice.
