    According to Deutsche Bank, ALU is too successful in China. I agree, winning valuable long-term contracts is so 90s. A nice accumulation opportunity after the recent run-up.


    NVDA bring out yet another yesteryear product after Shield. They are finally losing it; a short candidate emerges.


    ADSK is best positioned on the software end for the 3D revolution, we use many of their products. Going into the hobbyist sphere with their iPad 3D apps is consequent. A good company I will add.

    Good chance to add to $ALU today. How dumb can these analysts be?


    In other news another analyst upgraded JC Penney's today. Really? ALU is downgraded and a company that may not survive 2014 is upgraded.


    Makes me feel better about my 2014 picks overall.

    The DB analyst who downgraded ALU to Hold from Buy increased his target price for the stock and cited winning China Contracts for the downgrade, it is pretty dumb and agree with AH, good time to buy ALU. It will hit $5 when the firm publishes its Year end results in Feb.
