    Cha Ching! Greed is not even priced in yet. Lots of investors jumped off this gravy train to early. just because it has gone up 200%-300%+ does not make it a bubble. earnings power is enormous

    didnt even touch the 52week high.
    Bad CC history might be holding it back a bit?

    Yep, if cc goes well, 52 week high will be taken out IMO. Very strong beat on both top & bottom numbers.

    Thanks to all those who have engaged on both sides of the dialog about MU.. Obviously on the plus side, thanks to Russ, Phred, DTMM, RSA, etc. Not just the fans but also want to recognize the folks with counter arguments. Great constructive dialog.
    And since I'm not a sheep.. I'd like to thank myself for taking the insights from these folks and doing my own analysis!

     

    It will certainly be interesting to see how this opens tomorrow.. ok, time to get on the call.. praying for strong forward guidance!

    4X would be over 16Bn and $3 a share!! At the Nasdaq 100 PE of 21 MU would be selling for over $60 a share. I would say the standard memory cyclical implosion is already priced in MU! What a qtr! The funny thing is that a lot of these goofy, little to no profit internet and social media stocks are selling for 30-50X earnings. If MU were a social media memory company, it could be selling over $100!

    Thanks to those who called it long on MU - it feels good not to be totally alone as bear sentiment drives things down. Helps prevent a nervous exit!

     

    And thanks also to those who called it short - the short squeeze awaits us, and more.

     

    What an elegantly appointed casino this is, such beguiling croupieres!

    Thanks Russ and Phred and others for the realistic numbers before ER.
    Could go to around $ 25 soon, and stay there for some time.

    Oh no DB is saying this:
    MU reported GAAP EPS of $0.30, however clean EPS was $0.77, above DBe of $0.62
    and Street at $0.44. (Street may be a mix of PF and GAAP and therefore the comparison
    is less meaningful). We note despite the sharply higher revenue, GP $ was only slightly
    higher than DBe. The bulk of EPS upside to DBe was driven by lower tax expense,
    lower operating expenses, higher minority interest contribution, and lower share count.

     

    Our $20 P/T equates to 1.7x Price/2014E Sales estimate exclusive of sales to
    Intel. Our P/Sale multiple is above the 5-year average of 1.3x. We believe this is
    appropriate given meaningful FCF generation and deleveraging of the balance
    sheet for the first time in nearly three years. Margins remains below cyclical
    peaks suggesting the memory cycle has further room to run. Risks to the
    upside & downside revolve primarily around the supply and demand for
    memory products and the impact on ASPs. Industry supply growth is driven by
    access to capital and timing of new technology nodes. Demand is largely a
    function of the macro economy and unit growth of PC/Server and wireless
    handsets.

     

    Clearly Db is not a believer yet just like STX at 20(they were bearish then too)

    Russ is crying all the way to the bank (tears of joy that is) with his 200 fold return on highly leveraged call options in MU since 2013. Thanks to Russ and RSA for the good advice. I think MU continues higher on this positive momentum to 30 within a year, two at most.
